Intex Aqua Trend smartphone priced at Rs 9,990: Top 5 things to know
Intex Aqua Trend is priced at Rs 9,990 (estimated) and is 4G enabled. The handset comes with differentiating features — accelerometer and gyroscope sensors. They are powerful and have been aligned properly to provide smooth gaming experience to the user. Basically gyroscope uses earth’s gravity to determine orientation while accelerometer is designed to measure non-gravitational acceleration. And, when both of these are used together, they provide clean and responsive experience. Here are top 10 points to note about the Intex Aqua Trend smartphone:
1. The Intex Aqua Trend smartphone front is dominated by 5-inch LCD display that offers 1280 x 720 pixels resolution with 294 ppi pixel density. It allows a user to view both videos and games without any pixellation and provides smooth access to other features. Overall the display quality has been fairly satisfactory and it is at par with any Android device in this price range. Also, adaptive display works fine indoors and you will not have to blink a lot to read in direct sunlight. The front of the Intex Aqua Trend smartphone is also home to a 3.5 mm headset jack and front camera on the top, while three capacitive touch keys are placed in the bottom. The detachable rear panel is home to the rear camera and LED flash at the top plus a speaker grille at the bottom.
2. Inspired from brands like Apple and recently launched InFocus, the power and volume rocker keys on the Intex Aqua Trend smartphone are placed at the left edge while right is completely free from any distraction. Unlike other Android phones, all the buttons and keys are not customisable, so you cannot assign the task as per your convenience. With a thickness of 8.9 mm and a weight of 152 gms, the device is neither too thick nor too heavy. It is comfortable to hold and operate, and is non-slippery at the same time.
3. Probing the innards, the Intex Aqua Trend runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and its entrails are powered by Quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6735 processor with 2 GB of RAM. Multitasking or switching between the apps is good. However, the smartphone does over-heat. The phone has 16 GB of internal memory for storage of which about 9.5 GB is available for general use. The storage can be further expanded to 32 GB with the help of a microSD card.
4. On the camera front, the Intex Aqua Trend smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel auto focus LED flash rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. The rear camera captures decent landscapes and macro shots in normal lighting conditions, while same could not be repeated in low light. Overall, the camera section has nothing special to offer. The camera app is very basic and you get only the general modes, filters and a few adjustment options. If you compare some of its nearest rivals in this price range, few of them such as Panasonic Eluga Icon has more to offer in camera division.
5. The Intex Aqua Trend smartphone packs a replaceable 3000mAh Li-on battery. And, this could have been a major differentiator as not many companies offer 3000mAh battery in this price range. However the overall performance of the battery has not been at par with other Android devices in this range. It lasts between 8-10 hours with multitasking and continuous data usage. The device supports 4G on both SIM slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio, 2G, 3G and 4G.
