It has not yet created an impact in the smart phones range. The Intex Aqua 5X is a 3G Android phone with minimal features available at a very low price of 3,999 INR. It has all the basic features that a smart phone has and one cannot expect HD quality or high performance from this phone. It works just right for the price and is the best in this price range.

Intex Aqua 5X Design & Look:

The model has a 4-inch display with multi-touch feature. The resolution offered is 400×800 pixels and it is not that bad. It is available only in black. It is very light and weighs approximately around 100 grams only. The body is sleek with the volume rocker and power button arranged one below another on the right side. The front display screen is bordered on the both ends with dual stereo speakers and a secondary camera on the top left corner. The back features the primary camera, LED flash and the logo in a neat design. The 16M colors ensure a delightful viewing experience. It easily fits in your palm and it is pocket-able

The hardware Specifications:

They have given a 2 MP secondary camera with flash and one can click 1600×1200 pixels resolution pictures. The camera quality is average. The primary camera has very low resolution of only 0.2MP; minimum to no quality can be expected out of it. The secondary camera does not have flash facility. The phone has 4X zoom feature. One has to pinch in to zoom in and tap to zoom out.

It is a Dual-SIM phone and can accommodate two GSM SIM, out of which one slot is for a microSIM and other for regular SIM. Apart from two slots for SIMs, it also has a separate slot for microSD card. The RAM is only 256MB and the internal memory is also 256 MB only hence one has to buy microSD to download apps. The external memory is expandable up to 32 GB.

It runs on a 1.0 GHz dual core processor and though the makers promise a good gaming experience, it is quite impossible to play high-end games. The dual core processor is a letdown but considering the fact that it provides only basic smart phone features, it is acceptable. Downloading a lot of apps will slow down the processor in the long run. The battery is a 1300 mAh Li-ion battery and it supports the dual core processor well and provides a good 3 days stand by time. The battery backup is only 6hours which is another disadvantage.

A mircoUSB cable is provided for charging and a 3.5 mm audio jack is provided for Radio.
