The Wiko Getaway (available on Jumia) comes in an unconventional but interesting plastic boxing. There’s a charger, USB cord, earphones and manual bundled. Wiko also included a pin for ejecting the SIM trays and regular, micro and nano SIM adapters

First Impressions

The Wiko Getaway has somewhat got an HTC One look going for it. I’m quite impressed with the faux leather back covering

Jut so you’re not taken aback, you should know that the screen comes with a fake screen covering which you have to peel off before you can use the phone at all.

One last observation so far. The Wiko UI is basically stock Android. Which might be a good thing if you like me you don’t fancy unnecessary UI customizations.

That’s about as far as I go with my first impressions. You can expect a full review as I get to spend more quality time with the Wiko Getaway.
