Intex Aqua Octa features a 6-inch capacitive OGS HD touch screen display with screen resolution of 720X1280 pixels. The OGS display makes the smartphone best for playing games & watching movies in a full HD resolution. The OGS Capacitive display works very smoothly.

A large display with a good screen resolution makes it even stronger than others smartphone available in the market.

it gets 5 out of 5 on the basis of Display.


The main thing in this smartphone is its ‘hardware configuration’.

The smartphone is powered by a mediatek’s ‘true octa-core procesor’  clocked at 1.7Ghz coupled with 2 GB of RAM.

The Smartphone is currently the first smartphone to be powered by ‘true octa-core processor’ available in the Indian market, which makes it unique smartphone.

With Octa-core processor under hood, Aqua Octa smartphone will be the fastest operating Smartphone in the country.

The 2 GB of RAM & Octa-Core Processor clocked at 1.7GHz makes the operations or functions very fast & smooth with no processing time required.

We found 5 stars not enough to rate ‘Intex Aqua Octa’ on hardware basis. but, we can’t give more stars than that.

So.we give 5 out of 5 as per Hardware concerns.

Operating System:-

‘Intex Aqua Octa’ runs on 4.2 jelly bean android version.

Only, this is the main drawback of this smartphone because currently, the smartphones available in the market runs higher android OS mainly 4.3 or latestly launched 4.4 kitkat OS.

However, there is no news about the upgradation of OS later. but, rumors says that it will shortly run on the 4.4 android OS.

It gets 4 out of 5 on the basis of Operating System.

Camera, now-a-days have become the most essential part of an smartphone. All big fishes like Samsung, Nokia, HTC, Apple mainly concentrates on giving best camera feature which results shows like Nokia Lumia 1020 with 41MP camera, HTC one with 21MP camera & many more. Intex, by taking hint from these big fishes, also concentrates on giving away best as possible as it can give on a price tag like Rs. 19,999.

Intex Aqua Octa comes with a 13 mega-pixel rear camera with camera features like Auto-focus, LED flash support.The camera is capable of recording HD videos @ 720p resolution.

LED flash helps user’s to capture images at very low-light conditions. Auto-focus mode help user’s to capture images without any blur.

We give 5 out 0f 5 as per camera concerned.


Intex Aqua Octa comes with internal storage capacity of 16GB, which can be further expanded up to 64 GB via an external memory SD card slot.

The 16 GB of internal memory is enough to add your favorite media like music, videos, images & many more. You will get something around 13GB for adding your content and rest will be reserved for OS.

If you think 16GB is not enough for you, then don’t worry because you are getting an external memory card slot with an expandable memory storage up to 32GB.

It gets 4 out of 5 as per memory concerned.


Intex Aqua Octa packs a 2,300mAh battery that company’s claims to provide up to 6 hours of talk time and 180 hours of standby.

The 2,300mAh battery is also the one of the drawback of this smartphone. The 6-inch display with Octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 2GB of RAM, & 13 MP camera requires a much larger battery than it packs.

But company claims that it will give talktime of 6 hours but we don’t think so.

As per we concerned, it will have a very low battery backup.

We give 3 out of 5 as per battery concerns.
