We, at GIZBOT, were at the event and got some time to spend with both the devices. Here's what we think of both the smartphones after using them for a brief period.
No Non-Sense Design!
Both the smartphones look quite similar to each other, but the Intex Craze II seemed somewhat premium than the Aqua 5.5 VR. Both of them are built with plastic and doesn't inspire confidence when taken into hands. Because, both of them are entry-level devices, we can't ask for much.
The Intex Aqua 5.5 VR comes with a 5.5-inch 720p display, which was fairly decent in the short time. Coming to the Craze II, it also has the same 720p panel, but comes with a 5-inch screen. Both the screens are highly reflective in our short period.
Intex has added the entry-level MediaTek chipsets in both the phones and as expected they don't even handle general tasks such as camera and internet browsing. Also, both of them has 1GB of RAM to support the chipset. Intex should have at least added 2GB of RAM to make the devices more competitive.
Camera Doesn't Inspire Confidence
Both the new smartphones come with 5MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing cameras. It is worth noticing that the camera application doesn't even focus an object even after tapping the screen.
Added the advantage to the Aqua 5.5 VR is the front-facing flash, which will be helpful in night times for selfie lovers. But, when we clicked a shot using the phone's front camera, the image was heavily distorted even when the phone was steady, which is a bit of a letdown.
As the name itself suggests, the Intex Aqua 5.5 VR comes with support for virtual reality, which will be the next big thing in the smartphone world.
Cheapest Phones to Support Reliance Jio!
As said earlier, both the newly announced smartphones has support for Reliance Jio and both of them has support for VoLTEm, which means that you can make voice calls without installing any third party application.
