The Wammy Sensation comes with a 1GHz dual core processor, 1GB RAM and 12 MP camera running on Android ICS OS (Upgradable to Jelly Bean OS). The handset comes with a premium price tag of Rs. 16,000 (shipping charges extra). Is it worth it, read the full review.

Wammy Sensation box pack
unfortunately I did not get the original box pack with the review unit. But I got all accessories and the handset. The box pack contains the handset, Battery adapter, USB to micro USB cable, earphones (red and white colour), 2x 2000 mAh battery and user guide.

Inside the hood

The hardware is what you already know it’s the MTK 6577Cortex A9 dual core clocked at 1GHz with  PowerVR SGX531 GPU. The IPS screen is 4.7 inches with outstanding 1280×720 pixel resolution. The handset runs on ICS OS with 1GB RAM and 4Gigs of internal storage.

The Sensation comes with 12MP rear camera and a 3MP front camera. The rear camera is auto focus with LED flash support. Other features are 3G, 2G, Wi-FI, GPS, micro USB, Bluetooth and 3.5 mm jack. There are 4 sensors namely magnetic, light, proximity and G-sensors.  A 2000 mAh battery powers up the handset, you get an additional spare battery free.

Design
The handset looks like the Samsung Galaxy S3. It is smaller in size (as compared with A110) and a little heavier with good built. The rear side had that big WickedLeak logo that many users, including myself are not happy with. There are 3 buttons on the front side. Two of the buttons are touch sensitive whereas the center button is a physical one just like as seen on the Galaxy S3.

The Power, 3.5mm jack are placed on the top side, micro USB slot on the left and the volume rockers on the right. The handset is glossy white colour on front as well as on the rear with silver sides. This gives it a very elegant and premium look.

Performance
The dual SIM Wammy Sensation is co-branded model – the original model is B92 (you can search for it on the net).  We have seen the MTK 6577 perform well on the Micromax A110, Zopo ZP900 Leader and many other handsets. The 6577 chipset does support max resolution of up to 1280×720 pixels and when it comes to the camera the max is 8MP resolution.

The WickedLeak Sensation does come with 1280×720 (HD) display but with a 12MP camera that is technically not supported by the chipset. Somehow they have managed to increase the resolution thereby increase the file size, however the quality is the same as seen on the MMX A110 and other 8MP camera phones powered by MTK 6577.

Hindi fonts are supports and you can use both landscape and portrait modes when composing a message. GPS worked well I got a lock within 10 seconds.

Sound output in loud, in call speaker output is clear.  There is video call option. The webpage rendering is pretty smooth. In all the handset fits perfectly well in my palm (at least) and since I have been using the A110 for a longer time it was a delight using the sensation handset, single handed.

  • 492MB internal storage for apps with 297MB free for users.
  • 2.16GB internal storage (of the 4GB) with 2.15GB available for users.
  • Of 1GB RAM you get around 580MB free.

Benchmarking results

  • Quadrant benchmark score – 2481, 2nd time 2532.
  • Antutu benchmark score – 5542.
  • Nenamark2 score – 17.1 FPS.
  • Linpack score – single 37, multi thread 58.
  • Multi Touch support – 5 point.

Gaming
Because of the higher resolution you could get a lower FPS when playing games. Apart from that there should be no issues.

Camera
720p videos play well and the camera does get excellent images outdoors. Indoor photography is not that effective. You can record 720p videos just check out the sample video for quality / sound.  The still picture quality is the same just the resolution and file size has increased.  In general it’s the same 8MP camera.

Battery
You get a spare battery within the box pack so in all you have 2×2000 (4000) mAh battery juice. A 2000 mAh battery easily lasts for over a day with moderate usage.

Wammy Sensation review
Nice looking handset, excellent resolution and running on the ICS OS that will get the Jelly Bean update within few months. The 12MP camera is a disappointment – it’s as good as the 8MP.  The front 3MP camera is a good option. The price of 16,000 I feel is too high and is the biggest disappointment.

  7. Gogi,

    I have a budget upto max. Rs. 15,000/-. I was stretching to Rs. 16,000/- because it is S3 copy and liked the specs mentioned. Can you suggest the best phone with equivalent features of wammy Sensation in by budget of Rs. 15000/- +/- 10%.

  8. Hello Gogi sir,
    i want to buy wammy sensation for me. If price is no matter how is overall performance of this smartphone ,also battery backup n other specifications . U use this mobile for review .please help me .is this good one. I want ur suggestion for this.
    Thanks .

    1. Jaykumar, if price is not an issue is a very good phone. The main highlight is the HD resolution that you will not get for this price. The hardware is same as on Micromax A110.

  9. Hi Gogi!
    Have you ever ordered mobile phones from out side of India specifically from China? and what was your experience? I mean did you get what you were expecting and do you know any Chines online seller which is trustworthy?

    I really like to hear from you!

    1. No I never have, there is a risk unless you spend money on good courier services like DHL, but then that increases the overall cost.

  10. What the hell only 580mb free of 1gb, my Phone 423mb free of 512mb, then What’s the difference in them! Copy cat S3.

  11. Hai gogi,
    which mobile is best in your view
    ZOPO LEADER ZP900
    Wammy Sensation
    Micromax A110
    My budget is Around Rs15000

  12. Overpriced, phones with similar specs retails around 200 USD. Could have been a steal at 12-13k. And I don’t like the fact that all the phones launched these days are Galaxy S3 lookalikes. It makes me feel as if am I am buying a fake.

  13. This needs to launch with a quad core and Jelly Bean. There are just tiny changes for Wammy to make a seriously good flagship phone.

    – Switch to Quad Core Mediatek chipset
    – Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (supported by the Chipset already)
    – More internal storage for apps (2 GB for apps, 4 GB for users at least)
    – Just a single 2500 mAh battery instead of 2*2000 mAh
    – Remove that ugly WickedLeak tattoo from behind
    – Do not bloat the firmware (ROM), out of 1 GB RAM at least 650 MB should be free.
    – Move to a better 8 MP camera module itself

    Other than that, Wicked Leak should keep the Wammy Sensation identical to what it already is. Make these slight modifications and make a Rs. 16,000 smartphone, and we have a winner.

  14. Mast review Gogi sir, but at wickedleak site they says that processor is 1.2 ghz. And in review its 1.0 ghz, which is right.
    Also waiting for deep review and hd game play.
    Thanks .

  15. Very Neutral review. Can you please review in detail, UI display quality, graphics, call quality etc. This is a very dull review unfortunately.

  16. Hey Gogi,when are you going to review Karbonn A30?
    I was about to get A21 but just then A30 launched,i am now pissed off,flagships in just
    1-2 months.
    So,as soon as i will have an idea how A30 is,i will buy it in an instance.
    Just too curious to know what’s ram,cpu,gpu,resolution & performance of A30,so,just asking,when are you reviewing it?

    1. Don’t be in a confusion, All apps can be moved to SD card only that particular App will move that is meant to be

  17. Hai GOGI
    can i cancel my order? Is it really worth of Rs16000?
    As per now which handset is best in this price range as well specs?
    Eagerly waiting 4 your valuable opinion.
    Thanks in advance

    1. Ali,
      If you can spend 1.5k-2.5k more you can get much superior LG Optimus L9.
      If you cant increase your budget checkout Iball Andi new phone that is much cheaper with similar specs (1GB RAM, 8MP camera, 4.5inch display…etc)
