If you thought you have seen enough Quad-cores, you are wrong. Intex looks to breakthrough with this new handset called the Intex Aqua i5.
This is a zoom-in on an earlier launch cover of the Intex Aqua i5.
Intex Aqua i5 specifications:
- Android 4.2 Jelly bean
- MediaTek MT6589 chipset, 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex A7 processor
- 5-inch qHD display
- 12 MP back camera with LED flash, 2 MP front camera
- 2000 mAh battery
Intex Aqua i5 features a 5 inch qHD display, similar to that of Karbonn S5 Titanium. Strangely, all the Quad-cores in this price range follow the same pebble type curvy edge profile. Like all other 5 inch displays, one handed use is not going to be in your comfort zone. Up front, the device has 3 capacitive buttons at the bottom, the 5 inch qHD display and a 2 MP secondary camera seated just above the display. On the rear is a 12 MP primary camera.
This device utilizes the same Media Tek 1.2 GHz Quad-core chipset as the other budget phones. It also includes an SGX 5t GPU, which should boost graphic performance. The processor provides enough juice for the device to run in fluidic fashion.
The device boasts a 12 MP camera with Layer lens and BSI, which is the best sported by any such device in this price range. The device also comes bundled with a 2 MP secondary shooter. The presence of LED flash should enable good low light photography.
The device comes out of the box with the latest Android 4.2 JellyBean. Intex decided to lightly customize the stock Android UI. Remember that brands like Micromax have also done pretty well with their UI. It would be interesting to see the two UIs battle it out.
The device comes with 4 GB of ROM out of which only 1.56 GB is usable. However, this can be expanded by means of microSD up to 32GB. 1 GB of RAM coupled with the powerful processor should ensure lag free performance.
2000 mAh battery for a 5 inch screen can never be impressive. Charging everyday would be necessary.
