Wickeleak has surprised us with some good and some not so good smartphones over past couple of years. The domestic manufacturer has a reputation of providing glittering spec sheet and features for a competitive price, but in a market where every other manufacturer has adopted to same sentiment, will it succeed again?
Camera and Internal Storage
Wickedleak has used a 16 MP sensor which also has Sony Exmor RS branding associated with it to help you eliminate further apprehensions. Only 16 MP Exmos RS sensor popularly known is IMX240 (Galaxy Note 4). Wickedleak site lists IMX214 which is the same 13 MP (not 16 MP) sensor which is used in several popular phones like OPPO R5, OnePlus One and Xiaomi Mi4.
A 5P wide angle Lens with Schott Blue Glass Filter and f2.2 aperture is placed on top of Sony sensor. There is LED flash for low lighting and you can record 1080p full HD videos too. A front 8 MP camera is also present for video calling and selfies.
Internal storage is 16 GB and can be further extended by another 64 GB using MicroSD card slot. 13.31 GB will be available at user end, which sounds good enough.
Processor and Battery
The processor used is 1.7 GHz MediaTek MT6592 Octa core, which is again a very decent chipset from performance point of view. Karbonn Titanium Octane plus with the same chipset powering same full HD resolution showed occasional stutter but good overall performance. The true octa core SoC is backed by 2 GB RAM for efficient multitasking. For handling graphics and full HD resolution, there is Mali 450 GPU clocked at 650 MHz.
Massive battery is one of the main highlights of this phone. Wickedleak has packed in a humongous 5330 mAh battery (beats 5000 mAh in Gionee Marathon M3 for the lead), which can last for 4 days of moderate usage. Company claims 31 hours of 2G talk time and 43 days of standby time. Battery supports reverse charging too.
Display and Other Features
The display is IPS LCD panel, 5 Inches in size and embellished with full HD resolution. The display also uses OGS technology for closer and more sensitive display experience. Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which is high on consumer demand list, is also present for protection against mild scratches.
Wammy Titan 4 will be running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat for now, but wickedleak assures future Android 5.0 Lollipop update. Other notable features include NFC and Fingerprint sensor. Connectivity options include Dual SIM functionality, 3G, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth and GPS.
