Quad-core phones seem to be all the rage these days with almost all mobile phone manufacturers bumping up the specs and releasing quad-core handsets. HTC, Samsung and Sony are competing with each other with the fastest and smartest phone yet. Not too far on the horizon, we are seeing other budget phone manufacturers catching up the trend. WickedLeak has revamped one of its older dual-core models with a quad-core gut—yet again, at a cheaper price. Let’s check out the Wammy Titan II.
Scaled down from the older Titan, this one has a 5.3-inch IPS
Design and build
Not much to say here, the build quality is the same as that of the Titan. The only minor difference is the overall size, which has been toned down. The main reason behind this is the display size being cut down from 5.5-inches to 5.3-inches. The rest of the handset is almost the same in terms of design and looks. There are a few significant differences, but you can notice it only if you actually compare the two models side by side. The Titan II has the front camera placed on the left of the sensors, and the Home button is D-shaped. While the Titan had the power and volume rockers on either side of the shell, the Titan II has all the buttons placed on the right side, leaving only the micro USB slot and 3.5 mm jack on the bottom and top respectively. The glossy rear panel has an 8MP camera with LED flash and a speaker grille on the bottom. You can choose to switch the rear panel with the matte-finish flip-case bundled with the product.

The Titan II is high on features. Just a few days ago, WickedLeak gave the market its first quad-core handset, the Wammy Passion Y HD. The Titan II has the exact same hardware except for a few minor differences, which manages to cut down the price by almost Rs 1,500. The Titan II sports a 5.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels as opposed to the Passion’s 5-inch IPS screen with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution. The second difference is the battery rating, which has been increased a bit from 2800 mAh to 3000 mAh. And lastly, the front camera has been upgraded from 2MP to 5MP. The rest of the hardware is identical, which includes the quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, PowerVR SGX544 GPU and 4GB of internal storage.

Testing the Titan II using standard benchmarking apps was done as usual. AnTuTu scored 12478, Quadrant scored 3764 while Nenamark2 resulted in 53 fps. Lastly, Linpack scored 37 MFLOPS in the single thread test and 127 in the multi-thread test. Going by the synthetic tests, the Titan II scored almost similar points as the Passion Y HD. And why not, since the hardware is the same. Strangely, the NenaMark2 Score on the Titan II was almost double as compared to the Passion HD’s scores.

Display and user interface
The only difference between the Titan and the Titan II is the screen size, which has been dropped by 0.2 inches. The resolution and the IPS panel stays the same with no difference in the display quality. The display quality is very nice and crisp with decent levels of brightness, contrast and colours. Since the operating system is the same, with Android v4.2 to be released shortly, the performance and stability of all three phones (Titan, Titan II and Passion Y HD) are pretty much identical.
