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.
