Are you going to buy Intex Aqua Octa android powered smartphone? If yes please spend sometime know advantages and disadvantages) of buying Intex Aqua Octa smartphone. The Intex Aqua Octa costs around Rs. 18,000, and has an inferior screen but better build quality. If you like outsized phones and are on a budget, this is an option to consider. We expect the price to dip a bit lower, which will make it more attractive. The Intex Aqua Octa features a 6-inch HD One-glass Solution (OGS) IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen having a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. The device runs on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean OS, powered by the 1.7GHz octa-core processor, supported by 2GB RAM and Mali 450-MP4 GPU.
- Build Quality
The dimensions of the Intex Aqua Octa handset are 161.06 Ã— 80.86 x 7 mm and it weight approximately 180 grams. The phone feels pretty solid to hold and appears to be of a nice build quality. The build quality is much rougher than the general standard of phones on the market today; even those from Indian brands. The Aqua Octa is better, but still a bit unpolished, with rickety buttons and low quality printing. The Aqua Octa comes with a flip-cover case and a clear plastic screen guard.
The octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor is showing up in more and more phones these days, and buyers seem to be impressed. It wasn’t too long ago that we were just becoming acquainted with the idea of a dual-core smartphone processor, but now everyone’s racing to raise that number as far as possible. We’ve already seen that even though the MT6592 is designed around eight relatively weak ARM Cortex A7 cores, it can outperform the quad-core processors that power many of today’s mid-range and high-end phones. Where it lags behind is in graphics performance, thanks to the integrated Mali 450 MP which isn’t very fast.
This smartphone carries an IPS HD OGS touch display of 6 inches which provides a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. In this time when local manufacturers are moving towards 1080p screens, a 6 inch 720p screen might just look like a bit of an overstretched.
This handset works on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. Intex might bring the 4.3 Jelly bean update in future but we’d be surprised if we get to taste the 4.4 Kitkat on it.
This smartphone carries an auto focus rear camera of 13 mega pixels with 1080p full HD video recording and LED flash features. Intex Aqua Octa also features a 5 mega pixel front facing shooter. It looks good on paper but the real world performance is just average and nothing extra ordinary.
Intex aqua octa is dual SIM handset that supports GSM and WCDMA SIMs. It also offers FM Radio and a 3.5 mm audio jack. This handset will be available in white and black color variants.
Intex aqua octa Pros (Advantages):

- Yamaha dual speakers provides crystal clear sound
- 6 Inches OGS capacitive display

Secondary Camera. Both cameras provides good clarity pictures (not great).
Intex aqua octa Cons (Disadvantages):
- Battery capacity only 2300 mAh,this phone have quad core processor and a 6 Inch big display. So it should be at-least 3000 mAh battery to last a day. if u want to play high end games for this phone you need to carry a power bank. So the battery is a main disadvantage of Intex aqua octa.
- The screen have only 720 x 1280 Pixels screes resolution. This low screen resolution decreases the display clarity.
- Intex aqua octa comes with too much preinstalled bloatware applications. So you need to root your device to remove the bloatware system apps such as OLX, BigFlix,, NQ Mobile Security, Intex Game Club and so on.
- The accessories comes with the phone such as Headphone and charger are Low quality.
- Intex aqua octa does not support USB OTG ( ability to connect external USB storage device (pen drive, external hard disk etc via OTG cable)!

- Viewing angle are not great compare to xolo q3000
- Intex aqua octa can not able to record Full HD Video
- This phone should come with android 4.3, FHD (Full HD), Corning gorilla glass , 4G and latest version 4.4 kitkat
