Intex has announced the launch of a new smartphone called Aqua Amaze following the Aqua X. The deivce comes with similar specifications as the Aqua Star HD that was launched in September except for a few differences. The smartphone is priced at Rs 10,690 and it comes with a stylish gift box design as it is aimed at this festive season. Here is a quick review on the Intex Aqua Amaze to analyze the hardware capabilities of the device.
Camera and Internal Storage
The camera unit at the back of the Intex smartphone is a 13 MP BSI sensor that is aided by LED flash for an enhanced low light photography. At the front is a 5 MP front facing camera that will assist in capturing gorgeous self portrait shots and in video conferencing. These imaging aspects make the smartphone compete with the other imaging focused mid-rangers in the market and we do not have any issues in this regard.
The internal storage of the device is the usual 8 GB which can be increased further with the help of a micro SD card by another 32 GB. This internal storage capacity is pretty standard among those smartphones in this price bracket and there is nothing exceptional about the Intex offering.
Processor and Battery
The Intex Aqua Amaze employs a 1.4 GHz octa core MediaTek MT6592M processor at its core that makes it similar to the other octa core smartphones in the entry-level and mid-range market. This processor is teamed up with 1 GB of RAM to render a decent performance.
A 2,000 mAh battery powers the Aqua Amaze that appears to be deliver up to 7 to 8 hours of talk time and 240 hours of talk time respectively.
Display and Features
The display unit of the smartphone is a 5 inch IPS OGS one which has a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. Obviously, the IPS panel would render acceptable viewing angles, whereas the OGS panel will make the screen thinner and more responsive. Also, the fully laminated display makes the screen less reflective and usable even under bright light conditions.
The smartphone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and packs usual connectivity aspects such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and dual SIM functionality. Furthermore, the Aqua Amaze is pre-loaded with Opera mini, Zapak, OLX, WeChat, Saavn, Newshunt, Flipkart, Clean Master, Getit and other applications.
