Connectivity options are the same as with any Android handset, i.e. 3G, GPRS, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth. A microUSB cable is available as the PC interface and for charging the handset. Proximity and light sensors are also available as a standard feature.
Analogue TV app
The rear camera featured on the phone is an 8 megapixel shooter coupled with autofocus and a single LED flash. The images shot by the camera are completely below average and look good only on the phone's display. When transferred to a PC, you can see the grainy and pixellated images even when slightly zoomed in. Colours are smudged and the image is good enough to be viewed as a whole. The manufacturer claims the camera is an 8 megapixel, but as the performance concludes, it does not feel any better than 2MP or 3.5MP cameras. The front camera is equally average and performs enough for video calls. The rear camera is said to capture full HD videos as per the user manual and spec sheet, but the truth is that it can capture 720p and not full HD 1080p. Captured videos are also not impressive.
Bad TV reception
A large display requires a good battery pack and the Wammy Note features a healthy 2500 mAh Li-ion battery. The battery life of the product is pretty good and we did manage to get around 8 hours and 20 minutes of life whilst using it for our consumption test, which includes almost three hours of video, audio and voice in each test. The bonus add-on is the extra battery bundled with the product. Together when fully charged, the two batteries can give you almost 17 hours of entertainment and communication on the Wammy Note. So if you are a road warrior, this phone should suffice your daily commute and more.
If you are looking for a phone on a low budget with all the connectivity features you could possibly need, the Wammy Note can be considered. Though the phone sports just a single core 1GHz processor, it is pretty smooth and fast enough for daily use. Media, entertainment, emails, chat and web browsing are good enough on the large 5-inch display. The issues with the display’s viewing angle, the flaw with the camera button location and the below average camera performance are the only problems we found on this handset. But the sleek look and additional bundled items such as a free battery and plastic back panel case help balance this. For Rs. 11,000, the Wammy Note does not impress us any more than the Micromax A100 that is priced at Rs. 9,999, as they both have equally disappointing flaws. However, if you were to ask us to decide between the three phones—the iBall Andi5c, the Micromax A100 and the Wammy Note—the A100 would be our recommendation. The A100 is better looking, has a good display and the price is cheaper too.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
