Wammy Titan 4 Review - World's Largest Battery
For some of you WickedLeaks might remind you of WikiLeaks. But this brand is in no way related to the latter. WickedLeaks is an Indian smartphone company that was formed in Maharashtra way back in 2009. They have a plethora of devices and it is slowly catching up in the Indian market flooded with Chinese smartphone companies and a few of ours as well. They have some really good devices but I think the main problem is that people are a bit reluctant to go for companies like this one. They are hoping to change all that with the release of this phone, the Wammy Titan 4. It has the world's largest battery of a smartphone and at 5330mAh, they are promising a 4 day battery life. See how it fared in my review.
Looks and Build Quality:
The phone is beautifully built, but let me remind you that this device is no-no for people who want slim and sleek smartphones. It contains a 5330mAh battery inside it, so obviously, it will be a bit bulky, and it is. It is 9.3mm thick according to the company, and it has a really good presence in hand. In the front, we have the earpiece and the secondary camera at the top, followed by the 5inch screen and the physical home button. We also have 2 touch capacitative buttons. At the right hand side we have the power button and the volume rocker. We don't have anything on the left side, nor at the bottom. The micro-USB port and the 3.5mm jack are present at the top. As you turn around, you can see a silver colored lining of metal/plastic, which tries to mimic what is being done by many other smartphone companies. At the rear end, we have the primary camera, a single LED flash and the WickedLeak logo. The rear panel is removable and has a matte finish to it which makes it easy to hold. It will not attract fingerprints too. The phone weighs a massive 199 grams with the battery and for some people this might be a bit too much.
Just as with the looks, WickedLeaks promises a lot in the hardware sector as well. Wammy Titan 4 is powered by an octa core processor clocked at 1.7GHz from MediaTek. It is based on their MT6592 chipset. For gaming we have the Mali 450MP4 GPU which is used in a lot of smartphones like Redmi Note, Huawei Ascend P7, etc. It is capable of decent gaming. Titan 4 also has 2 GB of RAM. For storage we have 16GB of internal storage, of which 13.31 GB is available, and added to that, we can expand it upto 64 GB via microSD. With an octa core processor and 2 GB of RAM, you will never feel the need for more. Multi tasking was amazing and we had a lot of apps opened, but the phone didn't show any sort of lag. The speaker output amazed me as it was of pretty decent quality. There is one more added feature, and that is the fingerprint scanner. What?. Yes, a fingerprint scanner for a phone under 20K. It is fairly responsive and we can set to lock our phone with our very own fingerprint.
This may be the best part of the phone apart from the battery. Wammy Titan 4 comes with a 5inch display with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, giving it a pixel density of 441 ppi. It is an OGS IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. WickedLeak has definitely done a good job with this device. The display does a good job in color reproduction and looks just gorgeous. The viewing angel are also good at 178°.
This is another standout feature of the Wammy Titan 4. It has got a 16 megapixel camera at the rear. It comes with the Sony IMX214 CMOS lens with Schott Blue glass filter and f2.2 aperture. The camera is fairly decent in well lit conditions, but when it comes to low light, the f2.2 aperture doesn't let in enough light. But all said, it is a fairly good camera for pretty awesome shots in daylight. The camera at the front is an 8 megapixel camera which can take great selfies. Noise present was very less and the quality was just as what was expected from an 8 megapixel camera. The read camera can record 1080p videos at 30 fps. No other frame rates are supported.
Battery and Battery Life:
Even though it has a massive 5330mAh battery under its hood, it does not perform upto its potential. It lasts for almost 2 days before running out of juice. But wait, 2 days! Isn't that good? Yes, it is good, but for a 5330mAh battery, I don't think so. The company promises 4 days, and it doesn't come anywhere near 4 days. Maybe with lighter usage, you can run it for 4 days, I guess.
I think this phone is a no for me at Rs.14,990. We have much better alternatives at this price bracket like the newly launched Xiaomi Mi4i and the Zenfone 2. The Mi4i is cheaper by almost 2K and offers better than the Wammy Titan 4. The device is pretty solid, but since it is Xiaomi and Asus against WickedLeak, it is a tough battle for WickedLeak.
