Wiko Getaway: Unboxing and First Impressions

by | Mar 14, 2015

The Wiko Getaway is a Quad-core Android KitKat smartphone from French OEM Wiko Mobile. Here’s a first look at the device

Spec Highlights

  • Dual SIM (micro and nano)
  • 1.3 GHz quad-core processor
  • 5-inch IPS LCD display (294 ppi) with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection
  • Android KitKat 4.4.2
  • 16GB internal, 1GB RAM, expandable memory up to 32GB
  • 13MP primary camera (with auto focus) and 5MP front camera
  • 2000 mAh battery

What’s in the Box?

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.

Nice one. It’d have been a perfect one on my list if it were to have a bigger screen – 5.5 or above.
