Wammy Passion X comes with what WickedLeak calls as the world’s first hydrophobic smartphone. The Aqua protect technology makes the handset water proof to a certain extent. This is an Octa Core powered handset running Android 4.2 with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. It is priced at approx Rs. 20,000 (for a limited period).

Passion X Box Pack
The box pack is a bit different, black color with the new WickedLeak logo that looks cool much better. Inside you will find the handset, data cable, travel charger, 2500 mAh battery and a leaflet that explains about the new Aqua Protect technology and the preventive steps to be taken in case of accidental or incidental exposure to liquids. WickedLeak is also proving warranty in case the handset gets damaged cause of liquid exposure (do check their warranty terms).  There is no earphone included.

Design and Display
The handset follows the same design pattern as seen on the Wammy Passion Z and Passion Z+ handsets. Passion X is pretty light weight at 137 grams with dimensions 68.92 x 141.02 x 9.15mm. The build quality is good but as seen on the Z and the Z+ the back cover does not fit properly leaving out small gaps that may look a bit odd.

The volume rockers are on left, power button on right, micro USB at the bottom and 3.5mm audio jack on the top. The rear side is white color matte finish. The rear side looks uneven probably cause of the aqua coating. WickedLeak told me that it was a demo unit and that the consumer version will be clean and smooth.

The display screen is 5 inches supporting 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. The viewing angle is very good. There are dedicated navigation buttons. No issues with the touch – it’s very smooth and responsive. There is accelerometer, proximity, magnetic, gyro and light sensors.

Memory, Storage and OS
The Wammy Passion X runs on Android 4.2.2 with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. The free RAM on the first boot is 1.3GB and of the 16GB storage 3.94GB is allocated for apps and 9.67GB as internal storage. There is micro SD card slot that can house 64GB cards. App / Games can be installed on the external storage. OTG is supported.

Performance
It’s Octa core MediaTek MT6592 chipset Cortex A7 clocked at 1.6GHz with Mali 450 MP GPU. The performance is pretty good and lag free.

Benchmark scores

  • Quadrant Standard – 14728.
  • AnTuTu – 25837.
  • Vellamo – HTML5 1935, Metal 621.
  • Nenamark 2 – 47.5 fps
  • Multi touch : 5 points.

Entertainment and Gaming
The Wammy Passion X can play full HD videos. I test it out using MX player in both S/W and H/W modes.

I installed the MC4 and the Asphalt 8. The Modern combat 4 was very smooth and the Asphalt 8 also worked pretty well in high visual quality mode. Both the games got installed on the external storage.

wammy passion x review and gaming review

Camera
The rear camera is 13MP as mentioned on the box but in the camera app it shows 12MP. The front camera as mentioned on the box is 2MP but in the camera app it’s 5MP. Rear camera is with LED flash support. The still photography is good and so are the full HD videos.

The full HD videos are getting recorded in 16fps. I tried 1080p and 720p but in both cases the fps was 16. Wickedleak will roll out an update to bring it to 30fps.

Others
Sound is quite loud and clear. This is dual SIM handset with dual standby mode. The SIM slot 1 is micro SIM and SIM 2 is normal SIM. There is 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth. No issues found with any of these. The GPS works great; you will get a lock within 5 seconds and at times almost instantly.

2500 mAh battery
The Wammy passion X comes with 2500 mAh battery. When I ran all of the benchmark apps for about 26 minutes the battery dropped by 20% and while playing the two mentioned games for about 12 minutes the battery dropped by 9%.

I played the game again with battery at 5% and it played longer than expected probably the battery is not calibrated. The battery backup looks good you might want to charger a few cycles to get the % right. It played Asphalt 8 for 39 minutes from 5% before the phone shut down. You can play games for about 4 to 6 hours on a full charge.

Underwater test
Pls check the video review. We placed the handset in ‘switched on’ mode underwater for 30 minutes and then left it to dry for almost 8 hours, it survived.

Verdict
The key highlight is the water resistant technology the Aqua Protect that helps protect the handset from water and other liquids. Over all the handset is good, performance is at par as compared with other Octa core processor. The 1080p is with 16fps but that will be fixed soon via OTA update.

  1. Friends I used Wickedleak Wammy Passion Z for almost a year n then Exchanged it with Whammy Passion X. Both are really working fine.

  2. Hi Gogi sir,
    Is it worth buying Wammy Passion X at 16K with no headphones in box & looking at review Or should I go for Auxus Nuclea N1 with new 8GB internal ROM+as per Iberry all the problems are resolved or go for XOLO 1100.
    Please suggest & your input will hel me a lot for buying the mobile, as I am buying the smart phone for the first time & afraid i shouldn’t be worst experience after spending 16K

    Regards
    Mahesh

  3. i was stupid to take chance and buy the product bcos of its features…but in absence of service center, dont take chance with such hefty amount…i have been harassed by the company and the phone touch function was not working….they offer 1 year warranty and free pick up for servicing which are totally false… they were reluctant to give the address of mailing and after uploading the photos and videos n number of times and being confirmed that the display was intact, i was given the address and shipped the phone and was told that even during transit if something happens, that would be my liability… they did not respond for days and after insisting, they have uploaded a photo of a phone whose display is cracked and said that i will have to pay rs 7500 as crack on display is not covered under warranty….actually they want to shy away from responsibility…i am going to consumer court rather than pay for an amount by which i can buy another phone…so frnds pls dont buy this phone and rather invest in a reputed company … sudipta biswas, kolkata, mail id biswas1234@yahoo.com

  4. First of all i want u guys should keep in mind that wickedleak is the only indian company which provided 4.4 to mt6589T.My brothers phone wammy passion z+ updated to kitkat ..Its awesome antutu score is 16800 ..

  5. Specifications are really awesome. But one thing i want to know why all the indian brands opt for just jelly bean 4.1 or 4.2 why not the kitkat? One most important thing i would like to ask to these manufacturers please improve your after sale service if you want to compete with and beat the global brands. According to price and specifications its better than galaxy s4. Nice work wickedleak team keep it up.

  6. wickedleak team.i am kerala.i want to know about service centers in kerala especially in kannur.

      1. why are you cheating customer ,you didn’t sent any courier service for me after sending faulty mobile two times ,also when i sent mobile for repairing again you didn’t give courier charges…and again sent damaged mobile….

    1. Bro..i would suggest dont go by these phones who sells online but have no physical presence.. At least go for other indian brands like Micromax A350, xolo q 3000 etc. Or Why dont you go for super Gionee Elife 6 ?

  7. is it just me?? when i saw the handset video, this handset looks terrible..quality screams its very low…no offense this looks like a ugly plastic toy phone…

      1. I think its the patches on the back cause of the aqua protect coating that looks shabby.

        1. Please note this is the case only with Gogi review unit and consumer units are better finished.

          1. Why do you send such units for review ? I read the review at NDTV-GADGETS also. They also say that the finishing and make is very bad. Why would anyone pay Rs.19000 for such a phone ?

  8. Dear All :

    Let me tell you one thing. If your not from Mumbai, plz thing before buying any of this product. There service is horrible. You call them or write email hundred times. They will take there own sweet time and reply it. I’m rellay disappointed from them. Else, wait til the service centers come in your place.

    1. Hi Shaik,

      Thanks for the Comment. Please note we are constantly trying to improve our cusomer care as this is good for long term health of the Wickedleak Brand,

      1. You guys have been promising ever since. Fans like us have suggested you to go beyond your net service sell and to advertise it. But sitting in one corner of Mumbai like recluse and selling it only through your website..what an irony.

  9. The phone will be a pretty good deal for the price you are paying. Simultaneously we like people feel afraid of after sales support since Wickedleak is just a new comer to smartphone world. They must prove something different in after sales department rather than ending up like karbonn, celkon….. brands.

  10. Gogi
    Does Gionee support OTG for data transfer..???
    Web site mentions that it will be used to charge the other mobile only.

  11. @rohan yes surely this is an innovative product by wickidleak but in 3-4 months we will see this at 16 k when all indian companies will gear up to bring octacore soc investing 20 k in unoptamised chinese phone I feel a very bad compromise

  12. Hi wickedleak team..

    why you are again coming with the same design ?

    we are expecting different design and build quality.

  13. Gogi, why you take 8 hours (12 am to 8 am) to restart after the waterproof test ? immediately is it not possible ?

    1. Jaysakthi, the water needs to dry completely though almost all of the parts are coated there is a chance that the water might come in contact with the exposed parts like the contact points (battery etc). So to be on a safer side wait for the water to dry up.

  14. I am impressed with phone but price shd b 16 k imagine if iberry launch nuclea n2 mini with same specs of wammy x with wireless charger and price it at 16 k this will attract many people hope iberry will understand our concern regarding 15-16k price bracket

    1. Nilesh. This is octa core and waterproof .I berry cannot be compared at all with this even design is original.I salute wickedleak for innovation instead of aqua protect unlike other Indian companies.I am surely buying this.but wickedleak should do better marketing for new technology like apple fingerprint scanner

  15. looks good
    using passion HD

    my only complaint is no OTA updates
    stuck with 4.2

    wish to get 4.4 but no OTA updates…..

    and what about accesory of this phone
    flip cover available ?

    1. Mediatek is yet to update their sources to support anything better than 4.2.2. This is the reason why you see this handset with 4.2 and not with 4.4 or even 4.3. If they don’t, then you are stuck with 4.2.2. However going from 4.2.2. to 4.4 you won’t gain anything seriously drastic.

  16. God damn that logo at the back side looks totally crap
    even a four year old kid can design a better logo 😛
    Wicked people first at least decide how u gonna make your logo
    in every new product we see a new logo . 😀
