Definitely one of the best-looking budget smartphones, its Plastic body was designed to perfection, sporting dual antenna lines and a rear loudspeaker. Loving the simple symmetric aesthetics going on at the rear. The rear camera begins the train, followed by the LED flash before the fingerprint scanner.
Of course, the Wiko logo completes the train beautifully. Furthermore, the Upulse Lite is very easy to operate, measuring 8.4mm in thickness and weighing 157g. You can get it on shopping stores in Black, Silver and Rose-Gold colours.
It looks like a budget smartphone from the front, there’s no hiding it. Houses lots of bezels, the top is busy housing the front LED flash, selfie camera, speaker grille and sensors. Even though there are no navigation buttons at the bottom bezel, another Wiko logo takes up space.
The 5.5-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels with 267 pixels per inch density. Ignore the bezels and enjoy nice visuals in its big screen. The screen stretches up to 72% screen to body ratio with a 2.5D curved glass.
