WickedLeak Wammy Neo is a low cost octa core powered handset that runs Android 4.2 with a good 2GB RAM and 8GB storage. The screen of 5 inches supports 720p resolution. This dual SIM handset uses the 1.7GHz octa core processor – all this for just Rs. 11,990.

The Neo is also available in optional AquaProtect version that makes it waterproof to some extent. For the AquaProtect version you will need to spend Rs. 1500 extra.

Inside the Box: The Wammy Neo (with factory fitted screen guard), Flip cover with S-View window, on box it is mentioned 2200 mAh battery but inside there is 2800 mAh battery, data cable, travel charger, standard quality earphone and user guide.

OS, Design and Display
The Neo runs on Android 4.2.2 out of the box, on their official website (Wickedleak.org) they have mentioned that the handset will get the KitKat 4.4 update. The handset is slim, got a professional look, comfortable to hold and curvier on the sides.

The back is white color with matte finish. Handset is also available in black color in case black is your choice. There are few gaps between the back panel and the handset body especially when the battery is inserted. Not a big issue but it will be easily visible on the white handset. And the back panel is not that easy to remove and fit back. The gaps actually spoil the looks. Moreover the wicked leak logo on the back has been shabbily done and it can be easily removed (good for those who complain about the Wickedleak logo).

Wicked leak Wammy Neo review and unboxing

Neo weight with battery is 144 grams and dimensions are 71.52mm x 144.50mm x 8.56mm. Micro USB is at the bottom along with the mic, volume rockers on the left, power button on the right and 3.5mm audio jack on the top. Build quality is good.

The screen is 5 inches OGS IPS and comes with a factory fitted screen guard. Resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels with 16m colours. Colour reproduction is good and touch is smooth and responsive. Though I think the touch response will get even better if the screen guard is removed (but not advisable).

This is a dual SIM handset with overlapping SIM slots, you need a normal SIM and a micro SIM. Interestingly the handset comes with magnetic sensors too, one would have assumed it to be missing considering the price tag. There are accelerometer, light, proximity, orientation and magnetic sensors. There is LED notification and you can also change the colour as per your liking.

Memory and Storage
For the price WickedLeak has managed to get in 2 GB RAM and 8 GB storage. Of the 2 GB RAM, 1.4 GB is available on the first boot and of the 8GB storage 4.28 GB is allocated for phone storage and 1.97 GB as the internal space for apps.

There is micro SD card slot and you can install apps on the external card. OTG and OTA updates are also supported.

Performance
The Wammy Neo is sailing on 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 octa core processor with Mali 450 GPU. Performance is lag free.

Benchmark scores

App Result
Quadrant 16510
Antutu 25446
Vellamo Browser (2440) Metal (688) Multicore (1541)
Nenamark 2 59.2fps
Multi Touch 5 point

Gaming and Entertainment
This octa core powered handset can easily play full HD videos. For gaming I downloaded Asphalt 8 and Modern Combat 4 that got installed on the external storage. Game play was smooth. Asphalt 8 was also playable in high visual quality mode but I could see the frame freezing for fraction of a second. The same improved when the visual quality was lowered.

Camera
The Neo comes with a 5MP front camera and 13MP rear camera with LED flash. The camera quality is good, and can focus very close objects. However the picture quality looks washed out. Check the sample images especially of the Maruti logo (look at the red colour) and the flowers.

It can record 1080p videos at 30fps, the output is good and like the still photos the video quality is also washed out. I am not sure if a software update will fix this issue.

Others
Sound is loud and clear. No issues with 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth. The Flip cover is magnetic it will switch on the screen when you open the flip and when closed the S-View window will light up showing the time and notifications if any. You can control some apps via the S-Window.

Battery
It is with a 2200 mAh removable battery. I used the handset for 29 minutes running benchmark apps battery dropped by 11%. When I played the high end games for 16 minutes battery dropped by 9% and while viewing 1080p video for 25 minutes with full brightness and Wi-Fi switched on the battery dropped by 11 percent. The max temperature I encountered during the review was 40 degrees.

You can expect battery backup of 3 to 5 hours.

Verdict
For the price this is a good buy specially when it comes with a 2GB RAM and 8GB storage and of course it is octa core powered, plus the free S-view flip cover. The performance is also good. Having said that the back cover does not fit properly, camera quality could have been better and battery backup is average. In spite of all this the handset is still tempting at Rs. 11,990. It is the cheapest octa core available in India, if you are looking for a better octa then check out the Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ handset.

WickedLeak’s Wammy Neo is now available for Rs. 11,990 with Rs. 500 as shipping charges.

  1. Hey gogi just booked wammy neo youth but m afraid is it working like a octa core device I also notice they deleted negative review of some certified buyers from their website pls reply is wickedleak is a good brand?

  2. Benchmark scores of Wammy Neo is Very solid. It beats Gionee Elife S5.5 almost completely & does fight in 1 or 2 scores with Samsung Galaxy S5,
    I mean its great performer. I want to know if & how the camera of wammy neo can get their numerical rank of 13 MP, whether software update or what can improve its snapper quality. It should be able to detect the colour with clarity & detail as of 13MP symbol, not to get dull as it is in that Red maruti colour.

  3. Major con I noticed that image output; details are waste if colour doesn’t match with actual objects in almost all the images, esp. Red maruti colour.

  4. Really nice and superb phone I purchased last month 24/06/14. Nice experience with this phone. By installing some battery apps to overcome the battery backup, I tried it overcome this problem my battery really comes 2 days stand by continuous working is improved to 18 hours and my battery is 2200mAh only. Really superb, no lagging on Games stunning model in India. Back cover also good no spaces in the handset, looks pretty rather than all models I am really satisfied with this phone. Hope you people are also feeling same way after buying. Nice support From Customer Care Team.

    1. hi subba how is the phone after months of usage is there any problem, how is the call clarity & speaker i am planning to buy & would appreciate your honest reply thanks.

      1. Dear Gogi ,

        Kindly tell me the speaker quality of Wammy Neo Phone because in NDTV TEch guru says the device speaker quality is bad. I want really to know is this truth about the device speaker. Please sir i really want to know, So please tell me only truth about wammy neo device speaker.

  5. One more incentive Wickedleak is offering on a daily basis is prediction of winner of the Daily world cup match. They get 1000 rs off some days and free shipping worth rs 500 on other days for all the winners. Great offer. Effectively reduces the total price to 11499 rs.

        1. Dear Amit, The SAR Value is 0.495 W/kg @ 1 g(Head) and 0.537 W/Kg @ 1g(Body).

  6. I want to know about the viewing angle of this phone is it good for viewing hd videos and what is the density ppi of the screen.

  7. Please review Intex Phones too. I presume their after sales service is at least much much better than Wammy.

  8. AquaProtect version Rs.13,490 tax excl. Rs. 500 as shipping charges so total cast AquaProtect version

    Rs 13,990

    1. If you can afford to pay extra then Alcatel onetouch Idol X+ is the best and then the Gionee E7 mini.

  9. It will be wise to hold buying decision, as xiaomi very close to enter here, Redmi note will be cheaper..!

  10. What about the service centers its good but I ll pay 5000 more bucks for alcatel or I ll go with huawei honor 3c.

      1. Is there any hidden charges you charge in AFTER SALES services … like for pick n drop & so on….?

      2. Vighnesh Nadar sir,
        I received my wickedleak neo today. Even though it shows that the processor as MT 6592, it has only 6 cores as shown by different softwares. Can you explain?

      3. hi Vighnesh Nadar how is the phone after kitkat updates battery life, the call clarity & speaker i am planning to buy & would appreciate your honest reply thanks.
