Intex is constantly on its toes to add to its Aqua lineup for budget users and has now launched a new entry level handset in the country. This handset is called Aqua 4G Mini and is intended at those who are looking for a very affordable handset that can run 4G VoLTE. This bite sized smartphone is bound to find a lot of takers in India. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who are looking for a secondary 4G handset.
Android Marshmallow: To come with the Android Marshmallow operating system at this price point is pretty rare. This handset comes with the same out of the box and is almost stock Android. Users will benefit from the features like Doze and Google Now on Tap.
4G VoLTE: This handset comes at a price tag that many users would not think twice before spending and therefore the fact that it comes with 4G VoLTE is pretty surprising. Reliance Jio will work right off the bat on this handset.
Small display: While the name itself says Aqua 4G Mini, the smaller display does not sit well with many Indian users. Aqua 4G Mini has been equipped with a 4-inch display by the manufacturer, with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. This is not a device that would sit well with people who like to watch and stream videos on their handsets.
Minimal RAM: The handset comes with a minimal RAM of 512 MB, which is the biggest con in the books of many. The handset has barely enough RAM to run a single app let alone multitask. You can expect the device to stutter and hang a lot, which can be pretty frustrating.
No internal storage: We say no internal storage because the device comes with 4 GB of space, of which around 2 GB is occupied by bloatware and operating system. And remaining space is bound to fill up fast if you install third party apps.
