Intex Aqua i-5 clearly impressed us with its design that is both sleek and elegant. The phone feels compact in hand and one can easily find it to be slim and attractive looking.

However, the body is plastic and glossy, making it susceptible to finger smudges that do not look good on a black body cover. The body is sturdy enough for day-to-day use, and multi-tasking on the Aqua i-5 was a cakewalk. Calling quality of the phone was decent and other connectivity options like Wi-Fi, 3G did not pose any issues. 5-inch phones are not easy to hold in one hand and you might find the same with Aqua i-5 also but its sleekness will help you in adjusting to the size and you also have the option to use flip cover, which comes in handy.

The camera did not bring out anything extraordinary even at 12 MP but the inclusion of flash will definitely come in handy. The colours reproduced are not quite sharp and the front camera is merely meant for video calling, which is average.

GPS on the phone worked quite well and the location tracking and navigating options worked smoothly. For gamers, the phone is a delight in terms of display as well as performance. No lags, no heating and no system reboot. Games like Temple Run 2, Subway Surfer, 3D Racer and Elite Force worked and the touch experience was satisfactory as well. The phone charged at around 70 per cent last for about 5 hours and with full charge you should get close to 7 hours on full usage.

Intex Aqua i-5 may be good looking and powerfully packed but it became clear that the phone has its deficiencies apart from its camera. Our AnTuTu testing score was 13450, which is less than the score of Lava Iris 458Q but better than Xolo Q800 and even Karbonn S5. The Quadrant gave us 3969 benchmark score and Vellamo on HTML5 recorded score of 1451.
