The handset is available with and without Aqua Protect water proof technology. For handset with Aqua Protect you will need to pay Rs. 1500 extra.
Design and Display
The Titan 3 Octa resembles the Wammy Titan 3 handset that came with quad core processor, the design is the same, in fact is a clone of Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The build quality is good and the rear side looks like leather but actually its plastic with textures.
The volume rockers are on the left, power button on the right, micro USB port and mic at the bottom and 3.5mm audio jack on the top. On the rear there is 13MP camera with LED flash and with the new Wickedleak logo. On the front bottom there is two touch sensitive navigation buttons and a physical dedicated button in the centre.
This is a dual SIM handset. You need a Normal SIM and a Micro SIM card. Weight with battery is 169 grams and handset is 8.81 mm thick.
The usable screen is 5.7 inches , it’s IPS OGS with full lamination and supports resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels with 16M colors. The touch is very good and so is the viewing angles and color reproduction. There are accelerometer, magnetic, light and proximity sensors. There is LED notification (single color – red).
The Wammy Titan 3 Octa runs on Android 4.2.2 and on the Wickedleak official website that have mentioned that it will be upgradable to Android 4.4 Kitkat.
Memory and Storage
There is a good 2GB of RAM of which 1.6GB is available on the first boot. Of the 16GB internal storage 1.14GB is allocated for apps and about 12GB as phone storage. There is micro SD card slot that supports cards of up to 64GB. OTG is not supported but you can install and move most apps on the external storage.
The handset performed very well and there were hardly any lags when running the applications and playing games. The Titan 3 Octa is using the MT6592 MediaTek Octa core chipset clocked at 1.7GHz with Mali 450 MP GPU.

Entertainment and Camera
This octa core can play full HD videos. There is 13MP rear AF camera with LED flash and 5MP front camera. The still camera quality is good, it could have been better. The rear camera can record FHD videos at 30fps. Check the sample images and videos at the end of this review.
I did not get time to install the MC4 (Modern Combat 4). I did install the Asphalt 8 that worked pretty well in the highest graphics mode. This handset can play a lot more high end games with ease.
Wi-Fi Direct / Hotspot and USB / Bluetooth Tethering is supported. Sound output is quite loud. 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth worked without any issues. GPS lock is fast.
The flip cover is magnetic, when you flip open the handset will auto unlock and when you close the flip the S-View window lights up. You can use the S-View window to control the media, access camera and calendar.
3200 mAh battery
The battery tends to heat up and when the temperature reaches 49 degrees it will popup the message battery is over temperature please remove the battery.
For the first time I used the handset for 16 minutes running the benchmark apps only (with Wi-Fi on) the battery dropped by 8% and max temperature was 40 degrees. The second time I played the Asphalt 8 with Wi-Fi on and with auto brightness for 12 minutes the battery dropped by 6% and the max temperature was 49 degrees I got the battery over temperature message.
The third time I tried it in a cooler room, this time I played the Asphalt 8 for about 17 minutes the battery dropped by 10% and the max temperature was 46 degrees.
For normal usage there are no issues but when you play high end games in hot environment the battery tends to heat up quickly. If you have bought the Titan 3 Octa do leave a feed back on the battery performance it could be issue with the handset that I got for the review.
The battery drains faster when using heavy applications.
The Wammy Titan 3 Octa has everything that one would want on a powerful handset. The performance is smooth, camera quality could have been better (but it’s not that bad). 2GB RAM, 16GB storage is an added advantage. This dual SIM octa core handset is available for a price tag of Rs. 14,990 and with aqua protect it will cost Rs. 16, 490. A very good buy for the price and considering it’s feature, if brand is not an issue. The battery performance seems average.
Titan 3 Octa is available online for Rs. 14,990.
