Today if you're out to buy a new Smartphone, there are hundreds if not thousands of choices. So it is hard to pick a good smartphone that tackles everyone in the smartphone league providing upto date features, We couldn't say like this a year before since there weren't many choices left to pick from. So Smartphone manufacturers are always gambling to get that one or more, extra little renowned feature to stay ahead of the curve. If you speak about Indian smartphone manufacturers then a company that comes straight to your mind first is Micromax, isnt it? That's because they've been in this race from beginning & so are they good at engaging with international audience which includes marketing with Hugh Jackman & their partnership with Cyanogen resulting in YU televentures. Other companies which join that league are Karbonn, spice, lava, etc. which certainly received a boost due to Google's Android One program. So if a local company enters in this tough battlefield, the respective company must offer something far better than others, right? Well that's exactly what Wickedleak is offering. Their latest device : Wammy Titan 5 completely dwarfs every Indian smartphone manufacturer in Specifications, Price & After sales support. Let's find out more about Wammy Titan 5, the company's flagship offering at a non-flagship price.
Wammy Titan 5 :
- It has a 1.3GHz MediaTek(MT6753) Octacore processor with a 64 Bit Architecture. It is coupled with Mali-T720 GPU & 3GB DDR3 Ram.
- It sports a 5.5 inch full HD(1080x1920) IPS LCD display which gives it an overall pixel density of 401 ppi. Covering the display is the sheath of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to add protection from accidental drops.
- Primary camera is a 13MP shooter equipped of a Samsung K3L2 CMOS sensor. It's capable of recording 1080p HD videos at 30fps, while the added Electronic Image Stabilization eliminates the sudden shaky moments. The camera sensor is 1.12micron pixel & has f/2.0 aperture(for better low light shots). It also has a LED flash. Secondary Camera on the other hand is a 5MP shooter capable of some decent selfies. It records videos in 480p SD resolution.
- It has a Fingerprint Scanner residing at the back panel below camera sensor. It recognizes your finger in 360° orientation, so no matter how you place that finger, it'll recognize and unlock the device.
- Wammy Titan 5 has 16GB of Internal storage, while it can be expanded upto 128GB via microSD card slot.
- The device comes with a massive 4165mAh Li Polymer Non-Removable Battery. It also gimmicks the fast charging support that many companies offer. 60% in 60mins is what they offer calling it 'Fast Charging', well you might laugh at this but considering the huge battery this can be called a fast charging device, since a 2A charger is provided. Though this doesn't make it what's called 'Fast charging' kind off what Qualcomm offers with its quick charge 2.0/3.0 I'll test this out in my full review.
- It comes with Android Lollipop 5.1 on board with the company's quick reminder of Marshmallow Update
- It has WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n & includes usual sensors like A-GPS, Proximity, accelerometer, etc.
- Wammy titan 5 comes in Gold, White-Silver & Dark Gray-Silver colour models.
- Lastly, Amazing after sales support or atleast they claim about that (explained below).
Wammy Titan 5(Initial Impressions) :
Wammy Titan 5 is made from high grade metal Aluminium alloy resting on the edges as chassis. Wickedleak says it's the strongest alloy they've ever used on their smartphone. Well the front as we saw is covered with Gorilla Glass 3 to prevent the device from minor scuffs & those pocket slides/drops. Though the plastic back panel is removable, the battery is sealed-in. It's a dual sim device(4G) & the slots for SD card/sim are placed within the back panel. Apart from that, fingerprint sensor makes it's way towards the back panel, which is a convenient place to rest our index finger, without doing some wonky action to access the sensor as the competition does. Best part is that this sensor recognizes your finger even if you place it in any direction.
Fun Fact: If you're reading this on your smartphone your index finger is already lying at the back. So that's a smart choice, kind of what Nexus Imprint does on Nexus 6P & 5X. I'll thoroughly test this in my full review.
The mediatek processor on-board is built on Cortex A53 cores, while it's a 64-bit processor which means that normal cpu tasks will be performed at smoother frame rates & initially the device feels faster. Wickedleak says that this chipset improves the performance upto 70% compared to earlier chipsets. It's good to see that wickedleak headed with MT6753 processor instead of going with snapdragon 615 chip which heats alot.
After Sales Support :
This is literally the part where Indian customers suffer alot in terms of Local OEMs. But it seems like Wickedleak is here to change that, they're offering following things for free(with some added asterisks) :
- If something goes wrong with your device, simply contact customer care & you'll get the solution for your device without going anywhere. They provide doorstep Pick-up & Drop service for free, whereas they owe 3000+ locations in India & don't worry even if problem rises at anytime in future you can happily contact them, as this service is offered for lifetime.
- You can return the device within 7days which comes under their TrustPay policy(Money Back Guarantee) only if any hardware problem persists.
- You also get a free screen replacement, incase you shattered the device's glass accidentally.
Spoiler: This offer can be redeemed only Once & within 6 months of your purchase. Though if you bought this device under any discount/coupon, then you won't receive this free treatment.
Fun Fact : Wickedleak as a name initially feels like some sort of organization like evleaks, wikileaks. But it isn't, Wickedleak is a company that creates Android Smartphones & Tablets, Windows Tablets with the inclusion of device related accessories. Ohh & each of their device name starts with Wammy as a patronymic.
So at initial impressions this device feels quite nice in hands & it does follow the footprints of a flagship device. One of the good things is that the Software on-board is bloatware free infact it's almost stock Android, which is awesome & on top of that superSU comes in-built which headlines the possibilities of this device to a whole another level, as rooting joins the alliance of geeks. It wouldn't be wrong to say that, Cheap phones are getting good & Good phones are getting cheap. This device could really go toe to toe with recently released Canvas 5 & Oneplus X. But the full review will only let us know the what's the real deal. Until then follow me on my social channels to be the first to know about this device which will be dropping tomorrow.
You can buy your Wammy Titan 5 here, it costs about Rs.14,990 only :

Although I still wonder, why is this device not available on flipkart/amazon/snapdeal for sale, strange! This device has the potential to stand there.
