A cool choice
Display and Configuration
The Intex Aqua Q8 flaunts a 4.5-inch TFT display and has a screen resolution of 480 x 854 pixels (218ppi). In order to drive the system, there is a 1.2GHz quad-core (Cortex A7) processor coupled by 1GB of RAM and Mali-400 MP graphics engine. The device boots on Android v6.0 (Marshmallow) operating system and measures 135.7 x 67.3 x 8.8mm. It has a SAR value of 0.722W/Kg in 1g (head) and 0.721W/Kg in 1g (body).
Camera and Connectivity
The device is stacked with a 5MP camera at the back (digital zoom feature). For selfie admirers, there is a 0.3MP front snapper. There are connectivity options - dual SIM, 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS with A-GPS and microUSB 2.0.
Battery and Storage
The device gets its energy from a 1,650mAh li-ion battery which claims to render a talktime upto 10 hours and 300 hours in standby mode. The device houses an internal memory of 8GB out of which 5.9GB is user available storage. For more storage, the users can insert any microSD card in the memory card slot upto 32GB.
One can easily say that the Intex Aqua Q8 has basic elements which one expect when they are tight at budget. But on the other hand, the phone misses out lots of features which has almost become a necessity for e.g. 4G connectivity, more RAM, nice front camera. In short, the price tag clearly seems to fall on the higher side.
