Intex, an Indian handset manufacturing brand, has come a long way since its inception in the Indian smartphone market. The handset has ceased to offers smartphones with dated softwares and hardware long back. Now the manufacturer is actually launching devices with decent specifications as well as latest Android operating system. Intex Aqua Ace is the attempt by the handset maker to establish itself as a new age handset maker.
In the design department, the indigenous handset maker gets a brownie point and then some more for the Aqua Ace. The handset comes with highly glossy polycarbobnate back panel that can easily pass off as glass panel. Moreover, the sides of the handset have been tastefully done in glossy gold or black colour depending on model colour to further enhance the look of the handset.
Intex has placed a decent HD IPS display measuring 5 inches across diagonal on the front panel of this handset. The display of the handset offers an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels to its users for an enhanced user experience. Moreover, the display of the handset comes protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 layer that happens to be scratch and shatter resistant.
For an enhanced user experience for its users, Intex has pre-loaded the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system in Aqua Ace smartphone. Apart from slight visual differences and add on apps from the brand, the user interface is near stock, thus enhancing the user experience offered by the handset.
Performance and Battery Life
The handset comes equipped with a Quad-core processor that has been clocked at 1.3 GHz for a decent performance. However, it is 3 GB of RAM accompanying the processor that makes all the difference by maintaining the consistency of the performance. The handset also comes powered by a 2300 mAh battery that offers a decent backup on moderate usage.
Intex has equipped its latest handset with a 13 Megapixels primary camera that is good enough for all routine photography needs. The front panel of the handset houses a 5 Megapixels camera that is good enough for selfie lovers.
Intex Aqua Ace is a Dual-SIM smartphone that comes with support for both 4G LTE and 3G bandwidth for super fast Internet connectivity on the go. It also offers features like Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, microUSB, GPS and Bluetooth.
With Aqua Ace, Intex has finally managed to up its game and offer a device that is at par with other handsets in this price range. If you are looking for a stylish handset with decent performance and latest Android operating system, Intex Aqua Ace is the one for you.
