Wammy Passion Z+ review – 5 inch FHD with 1.5GHz turbo chipset

Wammy Passion Z+ is an upgraded version of the Passion Z. It is the same handset with exact features, the only difference is the chipset that has been upgraded from 1.2GHz MT6589 to 1.5GHz MT6589T (Turbo). The Z+ is priced at Rs. 15,999 and the older version for Rs. 14,990.

The packing is the same, as mentioned it’s the same Passion Z handset with chipset upgrade. Inside the box there is the handset, screen guard, USB data cable, travel charger and 2500 mAh battery. There is no earphones included.

The handset looks good, premium design and light weight. It is a dual SIM handset and SIM slot 1 is micro SIM. The Z+ weight is 139 grams with battery and thickness is 9.70mm and 11.34 with the lens that is bulging out a bit. Breadth is 69.37mm and Length is 141.13mm. The built quality is good, handset is comfortable and feels really light. However there are small gaps on the rear side where the back cover clips with the handset (check the video review).

The OGS screen is 5 inches with 1920×1080 pixels resolution (440.58 ppi). Screen is scratch resistant to minimal extent, it’s better to use a screen guard for added protection. There is no issue with the touch and viewing angle is really good. There is accelerometer, proximity, light, magnetic and gyro sensors.

OTG is supported; I could connect my pen drive and could browse the content using an OTG cable. 3G, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi worked well without issues and I got the GPS lock in less than 20 seconds. Sound is loud and clear. Phone features worked well.

As far as Gaming is concerned I tried the Dead Trigger game that worked pretty well, you can check the brief game play in the review video. I had shot this video a day before I got the iBerry Nucela N1 for review. I did not not get the chance to download and install the heavy games like Nova 3 and the MC4, but looking at the issues the iBerry N1 (with same MT6589T chipset) had I will get the handset again and try out the same games on the Z+ so stay tuned for the gaming review of passion Z+ coming soon.

The battery of 2500 mAh gives a decent backup time of up to 27 hours with moderate usage. The handset does get warm when playing games or using heavy apps.

Verdict
The Passion Z+ (that is a Ocean X7 re-branded model) is with MT6589T processor which is slightly better than the 1.2GHz MT6589 chipset. The Z+ is available for 15,999 it is Rs. 1000 more than its predecessor and a better option since the price difference is not much.
