A smartphone that glows in the dark? What on earth is going on? That was my first impression when I heard about the Wiko Fever. Wiko’s the #2 French smartphone maker that set foot in Malaysia earlier in the year, bringing three products in its portfolio. I set out to see if the Fever was all gimmick, or if there actually was a decent MYR800 smartphone underneath.
Wiko may not be a name you’ve heard about before. The French smartphone maker in fact, has been around since 2011, though only making an entrance here in January. It’s a fun, quirky brand and it calls itself a ‘game changer.’ It has over 30 products in its stable, though only three have made it to Malaysian shores for now.
