Intex is not a name usually associated with high-end, high quality phones. In fact, it's almost exclusively associated with cheap assembled PCs - Intex has been churning out budget-friendly keyboards, mice, cabinets and power supplies since the beginning of the PC revolution in India. Over the years, the company has branched out into accessories such as headphones, routers, webcams, speakers, and MP3 players.

  • PERFORMANCE BEAST BUT ALSO BATTERY BEAST
    MeHuUser onetwothreefour (May 25, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    At very first look AQUA OCTA looks impressive price = 18000 RS processor = true octa cores / Mali 450 MP4 ram = 2gb / 16gb internal + card slot screen = 6" making it only PHABLET with #OCTACORES but there are many issues the are left unmentioned in previous posts 1.) The increased performance are naturally the results of octa cores and Mali gpu but not fully, the display is clocked to 720P(HD ready) rather than 1080P(full HD) and in 6" screen 720P can cause issues like pixelating also the interface looks like a huge android phone rather than a phablet as users can only see 4-5 icons in a row, but again PERFORMANCE matters more, performance wise its BEST at its price, throw any heavy app/game its gona run smooth and cool also the interface issue , there are many launchers available @playstore that will help. 2.) Although first one is an acceptable drawback but this one isn't the removable 2300 battery is not sufficient for this beast live heavy phone with very vast display and powerful processor , company should have made it a bit bigger by making it non-removable type as even quad cores comes with 4300-4500 battery . On full charge it lasts up to 6 HRS i.e 2 charges a day.....BUT wait for it ! you can carry more than one battery (as it is removable) In the end with performance beast(#OCTACORES) and expandable memory with 6" display AQUA OCTA could have got 5 stars but the battery issue snatches one star from it..........if you don't mind the battery problem then it is the best at its price

  • INTEX ACQU OCTA
    B.L Nagesh (May 15, 2019) on Flipkart
    Really it is worth paying to 13 mega pixel camera since I had taken sony camera which is 7.2 Mega Pixel for Rs.10,000/- which is poor quality and when I got this Intex Acqu Octa which is 13 megal pixel camera I could get good hd quality pics with video really it works out to me

  • Best performer
    MeHuUser onetwothreefour (May 15, 2019) on Flipkart
    WELL AT THIS PRICE RANGE "AQUA OCTA" IS THE BEST PERFORMER, APPS WONT LAG ANYHOW WITH POWERFULL 8 CORES AND MALI GPU ALSO SCREEN IS 6" ONLY DRAWBACK IS THE BATTERY AS USING 8X CORES HEATS UP THE DEVICE QUICKLY IF BATTERY IS'NT THE ISSUE THEN GO FOR IT

  • Nice product
    Kanwal Anand (May 15, 2019) on Flipkart
    A good choice to go for with reasonable pricing. Fast processing & nice touch. Though a power bank is a must have for this fone, if procuring this fone.

  • Make a decision!
    Arjun Ajith (May 15, 2019) on Flipkart
    In the description its written "features a 6-inch HD One-glass Solution (OGS) IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen having a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels" while in the features its given 1280 x 720. SERIOUSLY?!? After googling I found that its actually a 720p screen.

  • TRUE OCTA CORE PHONE BUT MISSES SOME FEATURES....
    K Rahul praveen kumar (May 15, 2019) on Flipkart
    dis-adv no wifi tethering no tv out battery capacity only 2300 mah(quad core phones having 3000mah to 4000 mah) view angle are not great compare to xolo q3000 adv high end games can be played 2 ram & 16 internal(2gb for apps and 12 gb for storage) 6 inch ips display yamaha dual speakers at back conclusion if u want to run high end games for this aqua(i think u need to carry power bank) or go for xolo q3000(it also support almost all high end games like nova 3,mortal compat,asphalt 8,nfs,etc) both budget phones(below 20k) are good take according ur option high battery capacity phone or high capacity core phone see review videos before you take :D

  • Does not support USB OTG
    Royce Pereira (May 15, 2019) on Flipkart
    Be warned : This device does not support USB OTG (i.e. ability to connect external pen-drive etc via OTG cable) This is what Intex themselves replied to my query on their facebook page. I'd almost bought this phone, but decided to clear this query ... this was the deal breaker for me. The slightly older 5" quad core Intex i7 supports OTG (I have tested it). So if OTG feature is important for you, then avoid this phone.
