Wiko Fever

Wiko Fever glow-in-the-dark smartphone hands-on review

Design and build

For a sub-MYR800 phone, the Wiko Fever is surprisingly well-built. Its metal frame is reminiscent of the iPhone 6, with a removable leather-effect back cover. It measures 8.3mm thin, and weighs just 143g (with battery).

The design is pretty minimalist as a whole, with a volume rocker and power button on the right side. The buttons feel solid and tactile, with no mushiness of some phones in its price bracket.

On the top is a regular 3.5mm mic input jack, while at the bottom, a micro-USB port and mic. On the back is the 13MP main camera with LED flash. There’s a little bit of a camera bump, but it’s overall very neat.

Over at the front is a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display (@ 424PPI) protected by Gorilla Glass 3. I’m actually quite impressed with the display – it’s sharp and bright, and even at half brightness, it’s still crystal clear.

It features 2.5D glass, so it’s smooth around the edges where it meets the metal frame.

What’s unique, if gimmicky, is its phosphorescent lines around the phone which gives it the ability to glow-in-the-dark. Never need to search for your phone in the dark, again. It’s a unique feature, though I’m still struggling to find actual use for it.

    Is it the phone really glow in the dark? For real?

    • Vernon Chan

      Yes, but not super bright, and it’s just around the frame. Helps you locate it in darkness, or at night 🙂
