The low bezzels make it a handy device

Last updated on January 17th, 2015 at 04:31 pm

People often say that there is no scope for start up. Oh! really, then what will you call this? WickedLeak is a a company started in 2012 and right now it is competing with the Leaders like Samsung, Xiaomi, LG etc. WickedLeak is a company which makes smartphones with great specification at a great price. And in 2014 they launched their new budget device, Wammy One ( Ya it’s so great that it took us 1 year to see what all it has and Review it), with a price of just Rs. 8,990, this device has some serious power.

Build

The Wammy One has a sturdy build with the camera on the left corner with a flash. The power button and the volume keys of the phone are on write, and after using it for some time the buttons were as good as good as new. I was hopping that they would become a little loose or something but it wasn’t.

The low bezzels make it a handy device

WickedLeak also provides a flip cover and a screen guard with it which made it more durable and sturdy. The screen guard was already applied out of the box and was of good quality. Same goes for the back cover. The bezels of the phone are also not so big, though it has a 5″ display but it gives a firm grip and is easy to hold.

Specifications

  • 5-inch (540×960 pixels) qHD IPS OGS display with Dragontrail glass protection
  • Octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor
  • Mali-450 GPU
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card up to 32GB
  • 8-megapixel rear camera with BSI II sensor and LED flash
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Dual-SIM (GSM+GSM)
  • 2800mAh replaceable battery

Hardware

The phone has a great set of hardware, The Mediatek Processor and the GPU are remarkably good.

The phone has a powerfull Octa-Core processor which makes the phone a good performer, The Mali 450 GPU is also a great GPU which gives the device a good punch while gaming. It is coupled with 1 GB of RAM which is not that great.

I researched about the processor, though some could think that having as much ram is possible is good, but that’s not so, yes it is that if the phone would have 2 GB of RAM than it could be great (seeing the competitors), but the processor has a limit of the RAM required, the processor is compatible with some limited amount of RAM and increasing it would not increase the performance a lot.

In this case, the change in RAM would not have bought a great difference in the performance, so  I am good with the 1 GB ram as well. This also makes a good boost to the battery.

It has got a 5″ IPS display which has great viewing angles but still if it had HD Resolution than it could be better.

User interface

The UI is pretty much like the stock Android, it is smooth, clean, minimal, and simple. It has got some tweaks which makes it an exceptional device, Like

Air Gesture:  This feature allows a person to slide through different screens by just waving hand in front of the phone, it sometimes didn’t recognise the hand, you need to put your hand just in from of the sensor.

Wake-up Gesture: This feature allows user to put several gestures for different things like making M for going directly to your messaging app.

Audio

The performance of the phone is great, looks are great, build is great, in call audio is great but the audio from the loud speaker is just not that great. It was crisp and clear when it came but after two weeks, I can’t hear any bass. That’s the only Con till now I found.

Camera

The Camera performance of the phone was overall good, it struggled in low light but in sunlight, the phone was able to give some good, sharp photos. Here are some samples:

IMG_20141227_133030The shots aren’t the best but is still if you got enough light than the camera will impress you.

Battery

The Battery of the phone is also impressive, using it on a normal base was resulting in a battery backup of around a day.

Performance

The phone performance was the best part, it played any game on it flawlessly, we played Temple Run 2, Asphalt 8, Nova 3, Modern Combat 5 and Real Racing 3, Only in Modern Combat 5 and Real Racing, we discovered some frame drops, other than that it was doing great. We also Did some benchmarks and we got The Following Results:

Antutu: 29,001

Quadrant: 11,920

Nena Mark: 47FPS

 

Final Verdict: Wammy One is A great buy if you have to buy a phone with good specs, which can do all the daily stuffs very easily and can play almost any game flawlessly, It Could be better if they had given a better Screen and Camera.

Published

on

The OnePlus 7t is one of the best phones available in the sub 600$ range. It provides great build quality, awesome display, and best specs at a decent enough price. With this, it improves upon the OnePlus 7 with a 90Hz refresh rate screen, some camera improvements, and faster charging. There are tons of other minor improvements, and it all makes up for a more refined and reliable overall smartphone. The 7T is an excellent low-cost flagship. However, some users suggested that they were facing charging issues on their OnePlus 7T. So we are going to have a look at how to fix OnePlus 7T not charging.

Solution – Fix OnePlus 7T not charging

Method 1 – Restarting your 7T

One of the best solutions for your device not charging is to just restart it. Even with OnePlus sometimes the software can become buggy, it can hang and just not accept any charge. The first solution is to restart your 7T by pressing and holding the power button for 5 seconds and press on shut down. Once it restarts, chances are, your phone will charge as usual.

Method – 2 – Installing any Pending Updates on OnePlus 7t

As said above, charging issues often occur because of the software. If your phone is still turned on, check if your phone has any pending updates. If yes, then update it. These are the basic options that one must go through if their phone is not charging.

Method 3 – Changing the Cable | OnePlus 7T not charging

OnePlus is another apple in a lot of terms and After Apple, OnePlus is known for week charging cables. The USB C cable can often fry at the ends and can cause the cable to dis-function. A bad cable can also short circuit the phone’s USB C port so it is best to use the cable in its best condition and replace whenever necessary. If your OnePlus 7T not charging, try charging it with another cable or another adapter. To be honest, the quality of the OnePlus cables is not that great. Mine got frayed within two years of us so there is a high possibility that your adapter or the cable is the root cause of your phone not charging. Here is the link to a good USB – C cable which is compatible with your phone.

Method 4 – Turning on USB Debugging on the OnePlus 7T

If the restarting of the phone has not worked and It is not the cable then you should try the third method. This works only if your phone is turned on. Go to about phone in settings. Tab build number seven times until you see the dialog saying you are now a developer. After that go back to settings and now you will see developer options. Go to developer options and check the option saying USB Debugging. This will force the phone to accept everything from the USB port. This even though is used by app developers but can fix your issue.

Method 5 – Clean the USB – C port

Phones are often kept in our pockets and a lot of times pockets have lint in them. The lint can then build up in the speakers, mic jack or the USB port. Before going to a service center or doing an experiment yourself, just take a toothpick or a paper clip and try to get all your lint out. This will take some patience but there is a high chance it might work. This is because when lint is present inside the port, the cable is not able to get inside completely and proper contact between the pins is not made. So it is suggested to clean the port thoroughly.

Method 4 – Replacing USB C Port | OnePlus 7T not charging

It comes with Android 9.0 out of the box though it can be upgraded to Android 10. Samsung always fits the phone with the best hardware available on smartphones. When we reviewed the A50, we termed it as the Best Samsung midranger you can get. Recently, our A50 was starting to get some troubles charging and today it completely stopped charging. When searched online we found that many other users were also facing the same issue. We were able to get a solution and today we will be sharing how to fix the Charging issues on Galaxy A50.

There is no simple solution that works for all. You would have to go through all the solutions to see which one works for you.

Method 1 – Restart the phone – Charging issues on Galaxy A50

Well, this might sound simple but the One UI of Samsung could have a couple of bugs. I have gone through many situations where things like camera stopped working and with just a restart it starts working again. So one of the best options you have is to just go ahead and do a restart. When you restart your A50, it will first stop all the running operations including the ones stopping you from charging. When the phone is again turned on, all the tasks start from the startup position which hence clears the error that might be coming.

Note: If your phone is not responding, you have to do a hard reset. This can be done by holding the Power Button for 7 seconds or until your phone switches off. This, however, will delete any of unsaved data that you might be working on at that time.

Method 2 – Update the phone – Charging issues on Galaxy A50

As said above, charging issues often occur because of the software. If your phone is still turned on, check if your phone has any pending update. If yes, then update it. This is the basic options that one must go through if their phone is not charging.

Method 3 – Charge while switched off

If your phone is not getting charged while it is on, try to charge it while it is switched off. This actually worked for a lot of people and could work for you as well. Sometimes the wall charger is not able to provide sufficient voltage to charge. As the phone requires energy to run, If the voltage is not enough, It will just not accept the charge. The best way to check this is by charging while the phone is switched off. If it is able to charge, then maybe try using a different wall outlet. You can also wait for some time as it is possible that the grid is doing some technical work because of which the voltage is low. By this time, you should have a reason as to why your phone was not charging. If not then continue reading below 🙂

Method 4 – Change the Adapter/ Cable

This may sound obvious but the culprit could be your adapter or the cable. To be honest, the quality of the Samsung cables is not that great. Mine got frayed within two years of us so there is a high possibility that your adapter or the cable is the root cause of your phone not charging. Here is the link to a good USB – C cable which is compatible with your phone.

Method 5 – The USB – C Port

With time often the USB – C port gets a lot of lint stored up in it. As the phone is always kept in our pocket, it pickups up little garbage from our pockets. To clean this, you can try blowing air onto your USB C port. If you are certain that the port is clean but it is still not working, it might just be that the port is damaged. For this, you can either go to Samsung service centre. You can locate a nearby store from here or if you are someone who likes to tinker with stuff, maybe try to replace it by yourself. You can get a full daughterboard for less than 5$ from Aliexpress.
