Intex is one of India’s leading smartphone manufacturers and that too in an affordable price bracket. The company has launched its new mobile Intex Aqua Gen X, which is currently the company’s most expensive smartphone till now, priced at Rs. 13,299. The phone appears to have a bit more to offer than the rest of the company’s previous models.
Look and Feel of Intex Aqua Gen X Mobile
The phone comes with a solid cold metal in the body with plastic strips at teh top and bottom of the phone, most of the rear has a metallic unibody design. The look is surprisingly good. However, the front of the phone is somewhat basic compared to the back with the camera, earpiece and proximity sensor at the top. The chin of the device is plain as the android keys are on screen. The phone has also Asahi Dragontrail scratch-resistant glass at the front. The bottom has the Micro-USB Port, however, it misses out the fingerprint sensor. The phone is a dual-sim with the primary slot supporting 4G and the secondary slot supporting 3G.
Specifications and Software
The screen of the smartphone is a 5.5 inch full HD IPS Display and is powered by the MediaTek MT6753 SoC, with all eight cores clocked at 1.3 GHz.The phone also has 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB internal storage (expandable upto 128 GB with a micro SD card) and a 2850 mAh battery. The phone comes with a 7.5 W charger, a headset with a microphone and inline remote, a screen protector film and a SIM ejector tool. It runs on Android 5.1 and battery life is average, with the phone running for 9 hours 16 minutes in the video loop test.
The Intex Aqua Gen X has a 13 MP primary camera with facility of full HD video shoot, along with a 5MP front camera. The rear camera has a single-tone LED flash and both cameras support HDR image capture. The lack of detail and fuzziness of the pictures and videos really puts a dampener on what would otherwise have been a great camera.
Intex Aqua Gen X is a good, well rounded smartphone that offers good value for money. There are few let-downs also such as camera not being quite as sharp and lack of a fingerprint sensor. While Intex Aqua is a good device, it is overshadowed by the recently launched Xiomi Redmi Note 3 which offers better performance, features and value for money.
If you need a new mid-range smartphone with Intex’s larger service network as a key factor, then you can consider Intex Aqua Gen X.
