Design: Intex Aqua Sense 5.0 is a very attractive android smartphone. This phone looks really awesome. Intex Aqua Sense 5.0 is only 8.9 mm thick. Weight is 160 grams. Power button is located on the right side. Volume rocker button is located on the left side. USB and 3.5 mm standard audio jack is located on the top side. Primary microphone located on the bottom side.
Display: Display is very important for a smartphone. Now a days AMOLED and IPS display both are getting very popular among smartphone users. In May 2017, Intex Aqua Sense 5.0 Smartphone was launched and comes with a 5-inch IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. The pixel density is 220 pixels per inch. Viewing angles are nice. During our test we really liked its overall performance compared to its price. But the problem is screen not protected by a Scratch Resistant display.
Processor and Memory:
The phone is 8.9-mm thin . The phone is powered by a 1.2 Ghz Quad core Spreadtrum SC7731 processor and it comes with 512 MB of RAM. What this means is the processor has Quad cores in the CPU and 512 MB of RAM ensures the phone runs smoothly with multiple applications open simultaneously. The Intex Aqua Sense 5.0 also packs in a graphics processor, and 8 GB of internal storage which can be expanded to 32 GB via a microSD card. Intex Company should increase its RAM capacity. During our test we played some android games such as asphalt 8 and Need for speed. Most of the games were not playable with decent amount of frame rate. Processor and RAM both are not very powerful. This phone is good for some light works
Camera and Multimedia: Front camera is 5 mega pixels and rear camera is only 0.3 mega pixel. During our test we took some photos. Most of the photos were good but in low light condition most of the photos were not very sharp. So you should take photos with huge amount of lighting. Multimedia capability is very good. During our test we really impressed by its overall performance. Most of the audio and video formats were playable by the android smartphone.
Network: Network reception quality is nice. During our test both parties heard clear conversation without any distortion. We tested this phone with all SIM card operators in Bangladesh.
Battery: Aqua Sense 5.0 has 2000 mAh battery which is good but not great. Manufacture Company should increase its battery capacity. I think 3000 mAh is enough for this type of android smartphone. Also you can use USB power bank with for charge your android smartphone on the go.
Conclusion: Intex Company is launching some attractive android smartphone within very low budget. Personally I liked most of their model. I hope you will enjoy this android smartphone. Current price of Aqua Sense 5.0 is 5862 taka (Updated on 12/08/2015).
