Wickedleak Wammy One – A short review
Wickedleak is a new India smartphone manufacturer who tries to differentiated itself from other smartphone manufacturers by selling their devices at very low prices that no one else dare to offer for those rock bottom prices.
We have already seen Wickedleak Wammy Passion X and Wickedleak Wammy Neo but both of these smartphones failed to impress. And now we are up for reviewing their next smartphone named Wickedleak Wammy One.
All right without further ado lets find out whether Wickedleak Wammy One shows better performance than its predecessors.
Design and look
Wickedleak has managed to make some improvements regarding their design part. Wickedleak Wammy One’s design is not attractive but its design and look is somewhat better than other smartphones with this price range. The black body of the smartphone is made up of plastic and to be quite honest it does feel sturdy and i think that it can withstand some rough usage.
Wickedleak Wammy One is 7.7 millimeters thickness and it is easy to hold in a single hand. It features a 5 inch display screen which is surrounded by medium size bezels. Below the display, it has three capacitive buttons and they are fairly easy to see and has quite good sensitivity.
Above the display it has front camera and speakers. To the left of Wickedleak Wammy One it holds the power button and volume controller which is easy to access and looks good too.
On the back of the device consists rear camera with LED flashlight and loudspeakers. The back case is removable and battery too. It has two SIM card slots and a microSD card slot beneath it.
Wickedleak Wammy One is powered by octa core processor and features MediaTek MT6592 chipset whose clock speed is 1.4 GHz which is coupled with 1 GB of primary memory a.k.a RAM. Has 8 GB of internal storage space in which 5.6 gig is available for usage. Although the memory space can be extended via external microSD card up to 32 GB.
Wickedleak Wammy One sports 8 MP camera on its back with LED flashlight, Sony sensor and has 5 MP of front camera on its front. Also regarding the battery it has quite good battery with 2800 mAh. Supports 3G connectivity along with Bluetooth, WiFi and other basic connectivity standards.
I am disappointed with Wickedleak Wammy One’s resolution and its pixel density. It has resolution of 540 x 960 and pixellation is quite visible and the legibility of the display when exposed to sun light is not up to the mark. The display screen is protected by Asahi’s Dragontrail glass.
Wickedleak Wammy One runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat which is the minimum used operating system used now a days. Also Wickedlock didn’t offer much customization as well. The default music app is the app used during Gingerbread period and same is with camera application. We recommend to find replacements for the apps in Google Play Store for better experience.
And i must add that Wickedleak Wammy One disappointed when it comes to cameras as well (both front and rear camera). The rear camera captures pictures which are not accurate and has noise in image with low level color details. The shots captured in low light are even worse. The front camera has unusual view due to its narrow field view.
Wickedleak Wammy One is powered by octa core processor and it scored 11,328 on Quadrant benchmark and 26,921 on AnTuTu benchmark. The GPU is powered by Mali 450 chipset and its benckmark results are 15.1 fps in GFXbench and managed to score 3530 on 3DMark Ice Strom Extreme.
Also i didn’t experience slowdowns and also games ran smoothly. But the headset is much worse and we recommend to stay away from it. Even the loudspeaker sounds crisp too.
The battery capacity of Wickedleak Wammy One is 2800 mAh and it lasted nearly 6 hours which is considered to be average performace compared to its battery capacity. Battery charge might withstand only one day in real world conditions.
Wickedleak Wammy One is slightly better than its both predecessors in price and similar performance in addition with improved design. Although its camera performance isn’t good but given its price Rs. 7,990 i think the performance is okay.
The only smartphone with similar price is Xiaomi Redmi Note which offers better performance, camera quality and also sports a good display screen compared to Wickedleak Wammy One.
