With the steep growth of the entry-level smartphone segment, more and more manufacturers are coming up with such smartphones that are priced reasonably. Today, Jivi took the wraps off the ultra affordable entrty-level Android handset called Jivi JSP 20 with a tempting price tag of Rs 1,999. Another smartphone that is available in the market with the same pricing is the Firefox OS based Intex Cloud Fx. Here is a detailed comparison between these two smartphones to know how they stack up against one another.
Display and Processor
In terms of display, both the handsets are pretty similar boasting 3.5 inch display with a low HVGA screen resolution of 320×480 pixels and a pixel density of 164 pixels per inch. Though they are identical in terms of screen size and resolution, the Jivi JSP 20 seems to score more as it uses an OGS panel that will contributes to the sleek build of the smartphone and makes it more responsive.

When it comes to the raw hardware segment, both the smartphones are identical as they house a 1 GHz processor aided by a paltry 128 MB of RAM. These hardware aspects are too basic and they would make the two smartphones useful only for basic tasks and not for high-end operations as they are not intended for that purpose.
Camera and Internal Storage
Both the devices incorporate a 2 MP primary snapper at their back, but the Jivi phone is better as it comes with LED flash for relatively better low light photos. At the front, both the low priced smartphones have a similar VGA selfie camera for basic video conferencing.
Again, on the storage front, both the Jivi JSP 20 and Intex Cloud Fx arrive with a mere 256 MB that can be expanded using a micro SD card. The difference lies in limit of additional storage space that is 32 GB in the Jivi phone and only 4 GB in the Intex handset.
Battery and Other Features
Battery capacity of the Jivi JSP 20 1,350 mAh and it is rated to provide up to 7.5 hours of media usage. On the other hand, the lower capacity 1,250 mAh battery in the Intex Cloud Fx is believed to provide a moderate backup that remains unknown.
Connectivity wise, both the smartphones come with 2G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and dual SIM functionality. The primary difference between these smartphones is that the Jivi phone is based on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and the Intex handset is powered by Firefox OS.

Price and Conclusion
Both Jivi and Intex smartphones priced similarly at Rs 1,999 are given almost identical specifications with only slight differences. The Jivi phone takes advantage of the more responsive OGS panel and more additional storage space to save all the necessary applications and content as compared to the Intex Cloud Fx. As the latter is based on HTML5 based universal applications it renders an all together different user experience as compared to the Android based Jivi JSP 20 and this is where the two differ the most.
