Design, Display and OS
The Wammy one looks good. I got the golden and white colour handset for the review. It is light weight and got a pretty attractive design. Build quality is good and finishing is much better. Weight with battery is 133 grams and dimensions are 71.07 x 145.81 x 7.83 (mm).
It’s glossy white on the front, sides are golden colour and the rear is with a matte finish. Power button and volume rockers are on the left side and on the top there is a 3.5mm audio jack and micro USB port.
This is a dual SIM handset with 2 micro SIM slots and there is micro SD card slot that supports 32GB external cards.
The Wammy One comes with a 5 inch IPS OGS screen with low resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. Colour reproduction, touch and viewing angles are good. There are 3 sensors accelerometer, proximity and light. Though the magnetic sensor is mentioned on the box, it did not work with the compass app.
The handset runs stock Android 4.4.2 and it will get the Android Lollipop update (as mentioned on their official website).
Memory and Storage
There is 1GB RAM and 8GB storage plus external 32GB micro SD card support. You cannot install apps on external storage. OTG is supported. On the first boot you will get about 606MB of free RAM. There is 1.1GB free space for apps and 5.02GB is the internal storage space.
Performance and Benchmark
The handset houses the 1.4GHz MediaTek MT6592 Octa core processor with Mali 450 MP GPU. The performance is lag free.
|Vellamo||Metal (774) Multi core (1316) Browser (2062)|
|Multi Touch||5 point|
There is 8MP rear AF camera and 5MP front camera. Still camera and video quality is pretty good. Check the sample images and videos at the end.
I tried Asphalt 8 and Modern combat 5. Both games got installed on internal storage. Both the games were playable and smooth. Asphalt 8 did well in high graphics mode.
Sound is loud, clear. In call should is also good enough. No issues found with GPS, 3G, Wi-Fi. Air and draw gestures are supported (check video review). The flip cover is non-magnetic – the screen will not switch on when you open the flip.
There is 2800 mAh removable battery. Here is how the battery performed.
|Task||Time||Battery drop (%) (max temp)|
|Running Benchmark apps||25 minutes||11% (NA)|
|FHD video playback with Wi-Fi on + full brightness||23 minutes||15% (NA)|
|Asphalt 8 + MC5 GamePlay||21 minutes||11% (NA)|
|Full wall Charge||Under 3 hours||20% to 100%|
You can expect battery backup of 3 to 4 hours with continuous usage. The handset does get a bit warm when using heavy applications (it’s normal).
The wammy one specifications are good and price is just right. However the Redmi Note 3G is better but unfortunately not available as of now and there is another handset coming up the Micromax Yu Yureka that also looks quite promising.
Wammy One performance is good, smooth however the battery backup is just about average (3 to 4 hours), considering a 2800 mAh battery it should have given a better backup.
Rating : 3.5 out of 5.
WickedLeak Wammy Note is available for Rs. 8,490.
