Wiko Ride 2 – Complete Review!

by birtanpublished on November 20, 2020

What's going on everyone this is kevin here coming at you with my weko ride 2 review so let's get started so this is my review of the weco ride 2. now i'd like to thank wico for being kind enough to send this out to me to cover here in the channel now all opinions expressed in this video are my own but i do appreciate the support now about a year ago wiko sent me the predecessor to this phone which was known as the weco ride and there have been a variety of different improvements from the original ride

To the ride 2. now this phone is exclusive to boost mobile so if you are a boost customer or you're considering switching into boost then you might want to consider this at the moment you can get this phone at boost for just 34.99 so it definitely is a very entry level option but as you'll see in this video the device actually offers quite a few features and benefits to really make it worth that price tag but before i show you everything about the phone let's take a closer look at the items

Included in the box so again here's the box boost mobile weco ride 2 now when you open this up there is a smaller box right inside with more weko branding on it now the phone would typically go here and then we have a micro usb cable for charging and data transfer so it's actually a pretty long cable which is nice to see we have a usb wall adapter for charging we have a safety and warranty guide

And typically the battery would also be in the box here but i have installed it already into the phone so here is the actual wiko ride 2 itself now this device features a 5.45 inch display so it is a bit smaller than many of the other phones that i've featured here on the channel lately now the display itself is lcd at 720p we're getting a ppi of 295. so actually pretty decent here and we're getting an 18×9 aspect ratio so as you can see the form factor of this phone is certainly a bit more

Traditional compared to many of the other devices that have launched lately we do have pretty thick bezels on the top and bottom and there's also no notch to be found but i do like that we have squared off corners now one of the features with this phone that is pretty unique especially is that we do have a front-facing flash that is definitely something that you can't find very often anymore now the front-facing camera on this device is 5 megapixels stay tuned later on in the video as i'll show you photo and video samples from

All the cameras on this device now with the wiko ride 2 we're getting 32 gigabytes of internal storage and we're getting microsd card expansion there's no wireless charging with this phone there's also no fingerprint sensor and there's no face unlock either so if you do want security on the phone then you are gonna have to add a pin code to access the phone whenever you want to now on the back side of the device we just have one camera here

And it is eight megapixels there's no portrait mode at the rear or front cameras either and internally here with the phone we're getting two gigabytes of ram and the mediatek helio a22 now i've already covered quite a few other devices on the channel with the same amount of ram and the same processor and certainly you're not going to get anywhere near flagship performance here with the phone but it is adequate and it will get the job done i will say though that the mediatek

Helio a22 is certainly a big step up from whatever processor ran last year's weco ride because there certainly is a noticeable performance upgrade when using this phone now i did download geekbench 5 and i did run a benchmark test with the device so what i recommend doing is installing this benchmark app on your own current phone and then comparing the scores on your phone to these scores to see if this phone will be giving you a performance upgrade but you can see here i got a single core score of 163

And a multi-core score of 482 so again compare that to your current device to really see what kind of improvements you will get with the wiko ride 2. but here's how things look on the camera app this is of course with the front-facing camera and then we can do that front-facing flash let's do that right now there we go so it does brighten things up a bit and you can have it as a continuous torch you can have it completely off or you can have it activate automatically so it's really up to you there's also a time lapse mode there's

Also beauty mode so there are some different choices here now there is no portrait mode but we do have hdr so again they do give you some different options here but if you are looking for a phone with portrait mode then you're not going to find it with the wiko ride 2. now with the wiko ride 2 the battery is removable you have to install it when you get the device itself but essentially just take the back off of the phone there is a little notch on the side where you can grab and pull this back cover off but then

From there you can install the battery now the battery itself is 2 500 milliamp hours so not really the biggest battery as far as the capacity goes but considering that this phone does have a smaller display compared to many other devices out there means that there is going to be a lot less for the actual battery to power so with this phone you should expect to get up to 15 hours of talk time now the software on here is android 10 and there was some bloatware pre-installed which is pretty typical

Especially with low-end carrier phones but it's completely manageable but overall the software optimization is very good here with the phone and after installing a variety of different apps and taking photos and videos you can see here that i still have quite a bit of space available on the phone so i have only used 8.8 gigabytes of the 32 that we get here and of course out of that 8.8 gigs a good chunk of that is the actual system software itself so again a good software experience here with the phone

Good optimization as well and no the phone's not going to perform nearly as well as a flagship would but at the same time the performance is good enough that if you want to use this phone for basic web browsing social media and then of course doing phone calls and sending text messages then the phone will get the job done but now that we've gone over the major specifications of the phone let's talk a bit more about the hardware so i already talked quite a bit about the front panel here but that's definitely one of the biggest

Improvements that i've noticed with the wiko ride 2 compared to the original wiko ride is that we are getting a much better looking display i'm really impressed with the colors that we're getting and the overall crispiness of it and the viewing angles are pretty good as well now the material that the rest of the phone is made out of which is plastic actually looks nice as well i really like this navy blue color here and i like how it wraps around the sides and back of the phone and the phone itself doesn't really pick up any

Fingerprints but on the left side of the phone we have nothing on the right side of the phone we have the place where you can grab onto the back to pull it off we also have the power button and volume button then up top we have the noise cancelling microphone and we have the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and then on the bottom we with the microphone and micro usb port now typically i do prefer to see usbc on the various devices that i use but considering that this phone

Is just 34.99 i do understand why they gave it micro usb it is something that i can live with especially considering the low price tag of this phone now taking a look at the back side of the device we have a speaker at the bottom wiko branding we have the flash and the camera so just one camera again with this phone so you're not gonna get any advanced photography features but at the same time you can take some pretty decent pictures but let's now take a look at some photo and video samples from the weko ride 2. so in general the

Camera quality from the wiko ride 2 is adequate for a phone in this price range now there's plenty of room for improvement but at bare minimum the phone does take good enough pictures that you can use them whether you're taking pictures for your job or you're taking pictures to post on social media from a vacation the phone takes good enough pictures where someone's not going to look at them and suddenly think that you're using a very low end phone now colors can be washed out from time to time but again that is a side effect

Of using a phone in this price range so i really don't have any complaints when it comes to the quality but i'll let you be the judge by looking at the pictures yourself i will say though that if the phone did have portrait mode that would be a nice bonus especially since i have used other phones that are under 100 bucks that do offer that feature what's going on everyone this is kevin here coming at you with a front-facing test video from the weco ride 2 at 1080p

So let me know what you think of the quality as well as the audio quality from the microphone really curious to know what you think about it and here's a test video using the rear camera with the weco ride 2. the sun is pretty intense today by the way we do have auto focus in video mode which is good now going through instagram for example can be a bit laggy from time to time you are going to run into some stutters

Here but it does work well enough that you can actually get through the app and consume content at your own pace now also going through different stories also works pretty well again not the smoothest process ever but it does work and then you can go over and record your own stories as well if you want to so i'm recording a story with the wiko ride too recording a story with the weco if you want to so i'm recording so a pretty decent microphone as well with this

Four now device two phones are both exclusive to metro by t-mobile and t-mobile and the revel four plus is being offered in an msrp of 189 compared to an msrp of 100 so the weco ride 2 is pretty decent at watching video content the actual videos themselves do look nice on the display and another bonus too is that since this phone does have a 720p display you can watch youtube videos at up to 720p so that's pretty decent now the speaker on the back is not that great it really

Isn't that loud now it's good enough that you can sit down and watch videos or listen to music on this device but for the best content consumption experience i would certainly recommend pairing up this phone with headphones so in conclusion is the weco ride 2 worth buying well i would say that at the price of 34.99 there really aren't too many other options out there especially if you're looking for 32 gigs of internal storage and decent performance with 2 gigabytes of ram and the mediatek helio a22

Now i know that none of the specifications about this phone are necessarily impressive but again if you're looking to spend just 35 bucks on a phone this is about as good as it's gonna get so unless you're willing to spend more and go for a more premium device then this phone is certainly a very good value and i know that boost mobile is always offering a variety of different promotions for their various devices so there might even be better deals out

There for the weco ride 2 at the time that you're watching this video so i definitely recommend heading over to boost mobile's website and seeing what they're offering for the weco ride 2. but i would say that my two favorite features about this phone are that we're getting 32 gigabytes of internal storage and that we're getting a nice looking display here really though looking at the display you can see how good the colors are and those really are two things that make this phone stand out but i hope you

Enjoyed my review about the weco ride 2. if you have any questions about the phone definitely let me know but i'll see you in the next video
