Well Moto E has forced most of the home grown smartphone manufacturers to redraw their strategy and Intex is no exception. As we noted in our Moto E’s First Impression Review, it is indeed a quality device at a very affordable price point. So to counter this threat Intex has come out with Aqua i5HD and logically it falls under sub 10k category. From the very first look of it Intex Aqua i5HD feels like a built to last device. Key highlight of Intex Aqua i5HD is its rear 13 MP camera which can used to click pictures just by saying “cheese” or “capture”.
Sanjay Kumar Kalirona, Business Head of the Mobile division at Intex said, “At Intex development centre, we constantly conduct surveys to study customer preference and usage patterns. We launched Aqua i5 HD at below 10k price tag for users who adore image quality and love seeing the virtual world come alive at a 5-inch OGS display screen. We at Intex, aim to strengthen connect with consumers while we understand their needs and constantly innovate to meet the aspirations at an affordable price point”.
As the name suggests it is a phablet featuring a 5 inch OGS HD display with a resolution of 1280X720P. It has a Quad Core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3 Ghz coupled with 1 GB of RAM. As of now Aqua i5HD runs on Android Jelly Bean but Intex has promised to deliver Kitkat update in near future. Aqua i5HD is a dual SIM device with standard connectivity options like Blutooth 4.0, 3G, GPS/AGPS and WiFi at your disposal.
It has 4 GB of ROM which can be expanded up to 32 GB by inserting a microSD card in the microSD card slot. Along with a voice controlled 13 MP auto focus camera, it also sports a 5 MP front facing camera. A 2,000 mAh battery powers up this device. Black and White variants have been announced by Intex but as of now only Black variant is available across market. White variant will also be launched soon across retail shops and e-commerce portals.
