Question- How is the Design and Build Quality?

Answer- The Intex Aqua View is a decent looking smartphone. While Intex hasn’t invested a lot in designing it, it has adopted a minimal approach. The front and the back don’t have a lot going on – while the body is made of plastic, it looks like metal from afar. The odd design decision to divide the bezel into grey and black areas can be a little off-putting, though.

Conclusion

One of the more expensive buys in the entry level segment, the Intex Aqua View may find it a little difficult to succeed in this price range. While the 5 inch HD display along with the 8 MP rear camera and the front facing 5 MP camera are just about fine, Intex may find it a little difficult to sell it with the rest of the specs being a little underwhelming. The 2200 mAh battery, Android 5.1 Lollipop and a Mediatek processor may not be enough to pull it ahead of its competitors like the Redmi Note 3 and the LeEco Le 2, even though they are a little costlier than the Intex View Aqua.
