WIKO U Press and U Press Lite: Low Two Range with Metallic Design

The French manufacturer Wiko did not want to lose the MWC, biggest showcase to show their finery as smartphones refers. Although it is not one of the protagonists in this fair, are not exactly empty-handed for proposals for the Middle and low ranges.

On this occasion, presented two terminals of the well-known family U, the WIKO U press and U press Lite, that you are part of the input range. The biggest difference between both terminals is your screen size in order to cover the largest sector of the market possible, both to those who like the phablets as those who prefer something a little more content.

Metallic design for the range of input

These new French terminals, despite belonging to the range of input, do not renounce a built and elegant design in brushed aluminum. At the front, ruled by the screen HD, We can see a few frames acceptable for the type of phones that we have in our hands, while its bottom frame could have been trimmed a bit.

On the screen it can be seen, along with sensors and front-facing camera, a Flash to illuminate a little your selfies. On the back there are footprints under the camera and LED flash sensor, and below we can see holes that belong to the mono speaker.

In short, to be phones that not reach the €200, they have a good appearance for those who prefer something elegant rather than powerful. Perhaps frames are something that can be improved, but it’s nothing that should frighten us too.
