There used to be a time when feature packed smartphones costed an arm & leg. But as time passes, more & more great phones smartphones are becoming available – ones that really have good features & specifications at a wholly affordable rate.
I recently got the chance to test the newly launched Intex Cloud 4G Star for a couple of weeks (one of which coincided with Lakmé Fashion Week aka the busiest week of the year). It was the first time I was trying something from Intex, so I didn’t really know what to expect.
First let’s get to what was in the box. If you watch the short video I made below, the first part of it has a clip from when I opened the box for the first time. Other than the phone itself, charging cable & earphones, I was quite impressed to see two additional screenguards & a textured, translucent snap-on case included. With most other phone manufacturers these things have to be purchased additionally.
And lastly, let’s get to one of the most important things for me – the camera. The Intex Cloud 4G Star comes equipped with with a 13MP camera & a 5 MP front camera. The camera focuses easily with just a tap & chimes once it’s in focus. Depending on where you tap too, the exposure is perfect – I tested this by focussing on lighter & darker parts in the same frame & it quickly recognised the correct exposure. See an example of the foliage photo in my video above – both straight out of the camera & edited a bit (just some artsy filters).
As a fashion / beauty blogger selfies are pretty much part of my job description & this captures selfies that are bright & crisp, even in lower lighting situations.
