The Intex Aqua Star L is given a 5 inch fully laminated IPS display with a FWVGA screen resolution of 480×854 pixels. Though the resolution remains low, the fully laminated panel is appealing at this pricing as it will eliminate the reflections completely. The device draws power from a 1.3 GHz quad core processor that is paired with 1 GB of RAM for moderate multitasking.
