Intex Aqua i4+ Android smartphone with 5-inch display launched for Rs 7,600

Intex has launched the Aqua i4+ smartphone for Rs 7,600. The phone comes with a 5-inch display, a quad-core processor, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and will be competing against the Micromax Canvas Juice A77 launched yesterday with a similar display for Rs 7,999.

Like the Micromax Canvas Juice A77, the Aqua i4+ comes with a 5-inch FWVGA (854×480 pixel) display. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and comes with 512MB of RAM, while the Canvas Juice A77 has a 1.3GHz dual-core processer with 1GB of RAM. The rear of the phone sports an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, and the front has a 1.3-megapixel camera, which seems better than the 5-megapixel rear camera and a VGA front-facing camera on the Canvas Juice A77. The phone is equipped with connectivity options like 3G (HSPA+), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS and supports OTA updates.
It houses a 2,000mAh battery which the company claims offers a talk time of 6 hours and a standby time of 220 hours. Other features in the phone include 4GB of internal memory and up to 32GB of expandable memory using a microSD card, sensors like motion, proximity and light sensor, and preloaded apps like WeChat, OLX, Matrabhasha, Intex Cloud, Intex Play, and Hungama.

On the software front, it runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box like the Canvas Juice A77.

    Intex Aqua i4+: Beware of false claim on the company’s website. The official website of the company (http://intexmobile.in) list down the specification of this phone which has AGPS. I bought this phone last week, just to discover that I have been deceived with the wrong information present in the website. The phone doesn’t have any AGPS hardware (Navigation won’t work). Thanks to the local retailer who sold me this phone. He did understand the pain and agreed to take back the phone (I deducted a minimal amount for a week’s usage). I bought a Micromax phone and I am happy now.

    Intex has the worst customer support I have ever seen. Emails will never be responded. I called customer support to tell them that AGPS hardware is not present in the handset (as said in their website). The solution provided to me was to download Google Maps from the Play Store. Wow!!
