Wickedleak Wammy Note 3 with optional waterproof coating, octa-core CPU announced for $215


Wickedleak today announced the Wammy Note 3 for the Indian market. The smartphone comes with a design you might have seen before, but costs a lot lesser than the device it takes its inspiration from.

Wickedleak have been delivering some cost effective smartphones since the past few months. We really took notice of the brand when it launched the affordable octa-core Wammy Neo Youth for 8,500 INR or $140 a couple of months back. The Wammy Note 3 offers similar value for money, and comes with an octa-core processor also.

Wickedleak Wammy Note 3 (2)

Specifications

  • 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080p display
  • 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6592 CPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8GB expandable ROM
  • 13 mega-pixel rear camera
  • 5 mega-pixel front camera
  • 3800mAh battery
  • Android v4.4 KitKat

The starting price of the Wammy Note 3 is 12,990 INR, or $215. Buyers can additionally purchase the phone with Wickedleak’s AquaProtect coating that makes the device waterproof for an additional 1,500 INR or $25. The device will be available exclusively via Wickedleak’s online store, starting 1st September.

2GB RAM is fast becoming the standard for mid-range phones like this one. That is evident when a lot of local makers decide to include 2GB RAM on their devices, like Wickedleak has done here. We only hope to see designs that are a bit more original henceforth, which is bound to add value to the user.

    Google Now Launcher <3. Wish more smartphone manufacturers would implement this as the default launcher and not force their own ugly skins.

      Meh. I’d take Funtouch, MIUI or Sense any day of the week.

    I read that this phone is only 8.1 mm thick, yet it has a large 3800mah battery inside? It does not seem likely. Do you know what type of battery is inside it? I’ve heard of small phones with large capacity Amprius batteries in them, but i don’t know if they are effective.

      Yes they are very effective (noticeable in the much higher weight than similar size phones) and yet I share your doubts on this battery. I presume its a typo and its supposed to say 2800. That is more realistic.

        The THL has a large 5000mah battery inside of it and the phone is only about 9.4mm thick, but tests show that it can only run video for 11 hours before the battery is empty. With a 5000mah battery i would have expected much more than double that.

      Nice catch. We’ll try and get a word from Wickedleak on this.

    This appears to be a rebrand of the Star G9000 which also stated a battery capacity of 3800 when it was actually 2800.

    Actually I did pick this device to try and frankly very disappointed. If I use Video I lose battery like a 1% very 2 mins or so.. Also, the volume is terribly low. I have a Xolo that I use and that has a significantly loud volume. Also the touch inst as smooth specially in the notification. I have to drag is all the way down (happens from time to time) to make it stay which is very uncommon among smartphones. Call quality is ok and the flash light for calls was a blessing bcos while travelling with public transport I just couldnt hear the ringtone

    The phone does come rooted and thats a positive for me and basic phone, sms and mails do work. Not into gaming so cant say for sure about that

    The battery does say 3800mah on the back but the juice time isnt as great as I would expect from a 3800mah battery

    Before I go into the details, I ”PROMISED” wickedleak that I will take
    down my so called flaming comments before they give me my money back. The
    company ‘PROMISED” that they will deliver the phone within 4-5 days on the
    order page

    The company ‘PROMISED” that they had dispatched the product. The
    company ‘PROMISED” that the product was with gojavas, gave me a false docket
    number to track. The company ‘PROMISED” a refund within 3 working days when I
    found out their lies and threatened them with consumer court cases.When the so
    called company never kept up any of their so called ”PROMISES”, the why
    should I?

    Anyway, I will not waste your time with words. I will provide you all a
    timeline of events (for most of which I have e-mail proofs or voice recordings)
    and I will leave you to draw your own conclusions.

    12 september 2014 – Wickedleak account created.

    14 september 2014 –
    Wickedleak.org payment succesful confirmation received on email.

    14 september 2014 – Order
    confirmation email with order number received for w.wammy.note3

    15 september 2014 – I get a call from wickedleak confirming the order. I
    was happy that someone had called me and confirmed telephonically from their
    end.

    19 september 2014 – The order page had said product was in stock and in
    few working days product will be delivered. So after a gap of few days I call
    customer care. I am told that the product was in “PREORDER” phase
    when I ordered and it will take time for despatch. I ask them how could a
    product that has already been lauched be in preorder? And the website never
    mentioned preoorder when I paid. Anyhow to cut a long story short, They said It
    will be dispatched next week, so I believed and hung up the phone.

    22 september 2014 – I called and they say product has been dispatched
    and will reach me in 3 days. I was extremely happy.

    25 september 2014 – I called again saying the product was not received
    by me. They maintain that product has been dispatched on thursday and it will
    reach me in 3-4 working days (On monday when I had called they had said It had
    already been dispatched) . I get doubtful and ask for the shipment tracking
    details, and they say they will send a mail by 4.00 pm with the details.

    26 september 2014 – No mails, repeated calls to them. I get the standard
    reply, product dispatched, docket number will be sent to you by mail by 4.00 pm

    27, 29 september 2014 – Close to 5,6 calls each day to customer care,
    Wickedleak. I receive a fake docket number of some 5000-6000 rs wickedleak
    phone of one Mr.Arumugam in Chennai (My name in Navin, and I’m from Chennai as
    well). I lose my temper and call and royally blast customer care . I ask for a
    refund. No one there knew what their refund policy was or they were unwilling
    to tell me. After much anger and exchange of words, they finally say I have to
    submit a mail and money will be refunded in 3-4 working days.

    30 september 2014 – I send a mail asking for refund, and I get an
    automated reply mail saying my request has been received – mail correctly sent.

    1 to 8 october 2014 – I call them atleast three times a day asking for
    the money, They acknowledge that the refund process has been initiated on
    october 1. Beyond that, I get evasive answers.

    9 October 2014 – I receive a mail saying they are “Expediting” my refund
    process.

    14 october 2014 – I receive a mail saying my money has been refunded. I
    was quite confused as my card or my bank had not received the money yet. I call
    them and they say it has been sent from their side and I will receive it. I ask
    them for transaction details, reference ID of the payment etc, I get evasive
    answers. I am adviced that I do not know credit card procedures and the amount
    will refect only in my next billing cycle. I politely but firmly tell them that
    I am no idiot and I can check my unbilled card transactions on a mobile app in
    real time, and I have positively not received the money.

    15-16 october 2014 – After berating them daily twice or thrice about my
    refund, the irate customer care guy tells me, sir you are supposed to remove
    your derogatory comments on all websites. I ask him pointedly, are you trying
    to tell me that I will get my refund only if I remove the comments? And he
    doesn’t reply, perhaps he had an inkling that the conversation was recorded (I
    was recording it). I “PROMISE” that I will definitely remove the comments once
    the money is refunded. The customer care guy in his over enthusiasm sends me a
    snapshot of his system screen as a mail attachment to prove they had refunded,
    I find in the refund column mine still shows up as ‘processing’, not
    ‘processed’, and there is no transaction / reference ID as well.

    18 october 2014 – again many calls, eventually he sends me another
    snapshot, in this it says ‘processed’ from their end with a reference ID.

    After another two harrowing days, I finally get the money in my occount
    on 20 October 2014.

    I leave it to you to decide on the trustworthiness and
    integrity of this Wickedleak. Again, I have no animosity against this company
    in a business sense neither am i doing it on behalf of other smartphone
    manufacturers. Am a doctor by profession. I can be reached
