Inside the box, it contains the following contents:

The Intex Cloud Tread comes with full plastic build. The back cover is removable. It features a 5 inch display with 294ppi of pixel density. Its dimensions are 145 x 72 x 9.4 mm which is kind of okay and it weighs around 145 grams which is quite light. The phone comes in silver color.
Let us take a look at the phone from different angles.
Front Top features a Proximity and Ambient light Sensors and front camera.
On the right side there is a volume rocker and the power button.
On the top there is a 3.5mm audio jack.
On the bottom edge there is a micro-USB and primary mic.
The speaker grill is at the bottom of the rear panel.
Intex Cloud Tread features a 5 inch IPS display. It has a screen resolution of 1080 x 720 pixels (HD) and a pixel density of 294 ppi. The viewing angles are not very good to be precise but the display is sharp. Colour reproduction is also good and the display is visible in bright sunlight with full-brightness. Overall the display is good considering it’s a budget device.
Intex Cloud Tread is equipped with a 5 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front camera. The rear camera has got an auto-focus and LED flash. It features Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, panorama and HDR. The camera performance in natural light is good and the images were sharp and detailed considering its a budget device.
On the front it is equipped with a 5 MP shooter.
Intex Cloud Tread comes with a hardware that looks good enough on paper for a budget segment device. But as you know, we never believe it until we experience it. So I decided to play few games like Asphalt Nitro and Dead Trigger-2 on this phone with high graphic settings, full volume and brightness.
During the game-play of 60 minutes, I experienced occasional freezing of frames and lags. Still both the games Both games ran quite fine and all graphics were rendered in the real time. As far as heating is concerned, I was really impressed as it is quite minimal.

Intex Cloud Tread features a very decent specification overall. It has got a nice display, nice camera, good built and also performs quite decent in day to day usage. Since is also priced fairly reasonable, we can’t really complain about what it offers. The only thing we missed in the device is the 4G support. When today everyone is migrating to the 4G network, this phone really don’t do justice in this field. Overall it’s a nice phone with nice price tag but lacks 4G capability.
