Look and design
Intex has made a great improvement in the build and finish department. Smooth, curved edges and protection of Gorilla Glass on the front and back panels, cloud flash does not seem cheap anywhere. Phones slip slightly in the hands due to glass.
The handset has a 5-inch HD AMOLED display. It gives saturated colors and viewing angles are also good. On the front panel you will get a 5 megapixel sensor. Navigation can be done with the onscreen button. Notification LED is not present in the device.
The volume and power buttons are on the right. His response is good. The microSD card slot and micro-SIM tray are present on each side of the handset. There is a mono speaker at the bottom and the headphone socket and charging port are at the top. There is nothing but a 13-megapixel primary camera and flash on the rear panel.
With the phone, you will get a charger, data cable, headset, screen guard and manual. Not much can be said in praising the quality of the accessory, but it will definitely stay on keeping it. Due to the glass backpanel on the body of the cloud flash, fingerprints fall easily on it.
Specification and software
The hardware in Intex Cloud Flash works to provide a fun Android experience. The inbuilt storage of the handset is 16 GB and it comes with an octa-core MediaTek MT6753 chipset and 2 GB of RAM. The good thing is that the storage of the handset can be increased from SD card up to 128 GB. Other specifications include 4G support in both SIM card slots, Wi-Fi B / G / N, Bluetooth 4.0, USB OTG, FM radio, GPS and 2300 mAh battery.
Now talk of software. You will get experience stock Android Lollipop 5.1.1. A few gesture features are also present. You will also be able to adjust the display. Many motions and wake gestures are given. This handset has SOS support which is not commonly seen. With this help, you will be able to send your location to the emergency contact in any emergency. For this, both the volume buttons have to be pressed for three seconds.
Cloud Flash is a capable handset. It handles multi tasking easily during use. The interface is smooth and there is no problem in reading on the display in sunlight. The quality of the call is satisfactory and we have no complaints even with network connectivity. Although we did not face the problem of overheating of the phone, but the phone does get slightly hot while using the camera.
Octa-core processors gave good results in benchmarks. A loud sound comes from the speaker. This was possible due to software improvements in the Settings menu. It cannot be said to be good for music and cinema, but it does its job well during phone calls and messages. The phone plays full-HD video easily.
The 13-megapixel rear camera takes good pictures of the landscape and macros in broad daylight. The details were good in the close up shot. However, distant subjects are not very sharp. The sensor gives good performance in terms of colors, especially in HDR mode. Performance is a bit weak in low light, as the camera app takes longer to save photos.
Video recording quality is good. You can tap and focus during recording. You will find Panorama, Live Photo, Motion Tracking and Multi Angle View modes in the camera app. Most modes work well, except for motion tracking. The front camera also works well, but don't expect great quality.
The 2300 mAh battery inside the handset lasted 7 hours and 24 minutes in our video loop test. In normal use, the phone battery had to be charged again before the end of the day. And it takes longer than it normally takes to fully charge.
There is no major drawback to Intex Cloud Flash. This handset has the same flaws that we usually see in other devices in this price range. Barring average battery life and simple camera performance, this smartphone performs its role well. Intex's decision regarding design does not look right, as this handset has no separate identity.
We believe that the Lenovo K3 Note is still a better option in this price range. The reason for this is the better display and effective software features.
