Design and Built
WIKO 10 blends a stylish design with robust functionality. When viewed from the back, the texture and appearance of the back cover match the camera modules. It is available in Klein Blue, White, and Black shades.


The Klein Blue features a smooth, fingerprint-resistant surface. The design is a combination of French art and modern elements. It highlights the minimalism and simplicity of the design.


The triple-camera setup is arranged horizontally together with the LED light. The curved edges make it comfortable to hold, and despite its 8.98mm thickness and 199g weight, the phone is surprisingly lightweight and manageable.


On the right is the power button, which doubles as a fingerprint reader, and the volume rocker. On the left is the hybrid SIM slot, which allows you to choose between two nano-SIM cards or one nano-SIM card and one microSD card.


On the bottom of the phone are the USB Type-C port, microphone, and speaker grille, headphone jack and there is another microphone located at the top.

Display and Audio
WIKO 10 features a 6.74-inch display with HD+ 1600 x 720-pixel resolution and up to 260PPI pixel density with a 20:9 aspect ratio. it supports a multitouch screen display of up to ten touch points.


With a screen-to-body ratio of 90.69% and minimal bezels, it is an excellent device for watching videos on YouTube and Netflix, as well as for gaming, since its wide display allows you to see more. It only offers the standard 60Hz refresh rate, which is sufficient for enjoying an image that is clear and sharp. The viewing angle is also excellent, and it's usable even outdoor with direct sunlight.


The Night Light Mode and the Dark Theme are both helpful for preserving eye health and allowing for comfortable prolonged use. When the night light is turned on, the color can be adjusted using the color temperature settings in the display menu.

The single bottom-firing speaker of the WIKO 10 produces good sound, loud and audible in a typical setting. It works just fine for watching videos or playing games, but if you want to listen to music, you'll have a far better experience with wired or wireless headphones.

Hardware Performance and Software
With its 12nm Octa-core MediaTek Helio G37 chipset, the WIKO 10 offers improved single and multi-threaded performance thanks to the combination of four Cortex-A53 CPUs running at 2.3GHz and four Cortex-A53 CPUs running at 1.8GHz.


In addition to its 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, of which 115GB are user-accessible, the device supports microSD cards for additional storage. However, it lacks support for virtual expanded RAM, which would have been advantageous in terms of performance.

The large storage capacity of the WIKO 10 is a huge advantage compared to other brands in its category. You can install apps and games that require large storage space and not worry about storing your own personal files, and you can record videos in full 1080p resolution.

The WIKO 10's performance in the AnTuTu, Geekbench, 3DMark, and PCMark benchmarking apps is listed below.


In terms of gaming performance, the MediaTek Helio G37 provides this entry-level phone with the optimal balance of performance and energy efficiency. Everybody's favorite shooting game, Call of Duty mobile, is playable on a mobile device with modest graphic settings and a medium frame rate. Other games, such as League of Legends: Wild Rift, are playable on the lowest visual settings.


The rear of the WIKO 10 tends to become warm when playing games for extended periods of time, but this is typical as the processor and graphics processing unit (GPU) are constantly working to ensure a smooth gameplay experience.


It runs Android 12 with no overlay out of the box, which is fantastic because it allows you to experience pure Android. It comes pre-installed with the complete suite of Google apps and no bloatware, which is also nice since you can customize it the way you want.

It also includes some app features like a sound recorder, calculator, and SIM Toolkit, and its FM radio requires wired earbuds to function as an antenna.

The WIKO 10 performs well for a sub-9K smartphone. The lack of virtual support could have improved performance, particularly during gameplay. The default Android interface looks fine, but some users may find it boring, as it lacks in-house apps and system enhancements. Overall The WIKO 10 delivers superior performance from media streaming and mobile gaming to web surfing.

The WIKO 10's triple camera system consists of a 50-megapixel, f/1.8 main shooter, a 2-megapixel, f/2.4 depth sensor, and a 2MP, f/2.4 macro camera. It also has an 8-megapixel front-facing camera as well.


The main camera is capable of capturing good details in photos. The 50-megapixel camera has an f/1.8 aperture, a 1/2.76-inch JN1 sensor with a unit pixel size of 0.64m, and a maximum shooting resolution of 6144*8160 pixels. The pixel isolation technique of the JN1 sensor allows for more light per pixel, resulting in outstanding color fidelity and bright colors.  5x digital zoom with high resolution allows it to capture a good quantity of additional details when zooming in.


The camera apps support Panorama, Photo, Bokeh, Beauty, and video shooting modes. For video recording, it supports up to 1080p video quality and time-lapse videos. The Panorama 180° mode is ideal for landscape photography; the camera's 78.8°+85°+85° field of view (FOV) can provide photos with a wider perspective.

In the Night mode, the camera employs a computational photography algorithm to eliminate blurring, underexposure, and noise in low-light photos. The Smart HDR feature allows for evenly lit photos even in low-light conditions. 

The WIKO 10 has a typical 5000 mAh battery with 22.5W WIKO SuperCharge and reverse charging capabilities, which is great since you can use it to charge your other gadgets, however, this feature requires a cable with a type-C to a type-C interface which is not included in the package.  


With a battery life spanning a full day, the WIKO 10 is perfect for a day filled with entertainment without having to worry about running out of juice.

Using the WIKO 10 22.5W WIKO SuperCharge, the battery can be charged to 70% in 60 minutes, and a short 10-minute charge can refill the phone's battery to 15%, providing you with two extra hours of video playback time. WIKO 10 fully charges in 96 minutes when plugged in.

Final Thoughts
