Wiko Highway Star

The Design

One thing you will immediately notice on sighting the Wiko Highway Star is its all-metal body. This brings it on par with higher-priced rivals such as Apple's iPhone 6 and Samsung's Galaxy S6.

The only difference is that Wiko Highway Star does not have a unibody design like the costlier smartphones. The device flaunts a svelte profile at 6.6mm thick and weighs 123 grams. It comes in four vivid and vibrant colours.

Display and Cameras

Wiko Highway Star packs a 5-inch AMOLED display with HD (720p) resolution and pixel density of 294ppi. The multi-touch screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

The phone has a 13 megapixels main camera with LED flash, autofocus, face detection, and HDR. The snapper has Full HD (1080p) video recording capability. On the front of the Wiko Highway Star is a 5 megapixels camera.

Power and Performance

Provided with an octa-core processor, Wiko Highway Star should deliver highly responsive performance. The Cortex-A53 chip runs at 1.5GHz and is supported by RAM of 2GB. The smartphone is run by vanilla Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system.

While the software might be described as a disappointment, the fact that the phone uses a stock version makes updating very easy. Wiko Highway Star is provided with a 2450mAh Li-Po battery described as being capable of delivering almost 20 hours of talk time.

Additional Information

On-board storage memory is 16GB - enough to hold several hundreds of photos, songs, apps and videos. Wiko Highway Star supports dual SIM and dual standby. If the on-board storage is insufficient for you, the second SIM slot can be used to add up to 64GB with a microSD.

Connectivity and communication options include Bluetooth 4.0 with ADP, microUSB 2.0, USB Host and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. Users can enjoy faster mobile browsing with the phone's 4G LTE support.

Pricing and availability

Wiko Highway Star is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Wiko Highway Star Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N65,000 to N75,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.

ZTE Grand S3 Specs & Price

ZTE Grand S3 was only recently unveiled during Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona and looks set to boost the credibility of its Chinese maker in the smartphone market. ZTE Grand S3 is designed to contend favourably well against its more expensive rivals and boasts of several cool features - most notably among them is its biometric eye scanning security feature.

ZTE Grand S3

Display and Camera

This ZTE flagship smartphone is fitted with a screen that measure 5.5 inches diagonally, putting it in the phablet territory. The screen has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

ZTE Grand S3 has been given an upgrade in the camera department, compared to the Grand S2. The rear camera now uses a 16-megapixel sensor, while the front-facing camera has been boosted to 8 megapixels for great selfies and wefies. The rear camera can also record 2160p ultra HD (4k) video.

Power and Performance

A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at an impressive 2.5GHz - faster than some laptops - powers the ZTE Grand S3. The device runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat) operating system overlaid by the Chinese smartphone manufacturer's own custom user interface. ZTE could have scored better points with the phones if it had provided the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop on it, but hopely an upgrade should be in the pipeline.

Performance is supported by an enhanced RAM of 3GB and a decent battery of 3100mAh capacity. ZTE Grand S3 offers 16GB Internal storage, which is expandable to up to 64GB using a microSD.

Eye Scanner

The most noteworthy feature on the ZTE Grand S3 is one called Eyeprint ID. This is a biometric security feature based on technology developed by EyeVerify. This innovative feature is more secure than the use of PIN codes and patterns to lock a smartphone. Codes and patterns can possibly be guessed.

Once you have set up the Eyeprint ID, you only need to look at the front camera of your ZTE Grand S3 to unlock it. It's that simple. The biometric solution is able to identify the pattern of blood vessels in the eyes of a user and uses that to unlock the ZTE Grand S3.

Compatible apps can also be configured to request eye scanning before granting access. The biometric solution is secure to the extent that the smartphone cannot be unlocked using the photo or video of its owner, quoting ZTE.

Pricing & Availability

ZTE Grand S3 is not available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in Nigeria. ZTE Grand S3 price in Nigeria is expected to range from N65,000 to N75,000 depending on your location in the country.
