The Intex Cloud Style 4G is a generic-looking smart phone with some design flairs thrown in for a good measure. The handset is available in two colors Grey and Champagne Gold. The back panel comes off and gives access to the removable battery, the dual SIMs, and the storage expansion slot. The back panel has a fine criss-cross design. There is a plastic frame running around the edges of the phone.
The circular cut-out for the camera lens sits beside the vertical speaker grill which is made of small holes drilled in the back. The single LED flash sits below the camera. On the front, the three Android navigation keys sit below the 5.0-inch display. These are not back-lit. The front panel and the edges are painted to match the back panel’s color. The front camera and the sensors are in line with the earpiece. Overall, the phone has a fresh design.
The Intex Cloud Style 4G has a 5.0-inch TFT LCD HD display with multi-touch support. The HD resolution of 1280 x 720 on a 5.0-inch panel gives it a density of 294 PPI. The colors are rendered nicely with ample contrast and good viewing angles. Outdoor visibility is not a problem. At this price point, this is a good display.
The Intex Cloud Style 4G has an 8.0 megapixels primary camera. The colors are captured quite accurately and 5.0 megapixels manages to capture a good amount of details.
The pictures are sharp enough to be shared on social media. The included LED flash helps out in low-light situations. The front camera is a 5.0 megapixels camera, which will definitely appeal to selfie shooters.
At the heart of the Intex Cloud Style 4G, runs a quad-core Spreadtrum processor ticking along at 1.3 GHz. It is paired with 1 GB of RAM and comes with 8 GB storage out of the box. The included storage can be increased up to 32 GB.
The phone comes bundled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The 1 GB of RAM keeps the phone ticking with a few minor lags at some places. The 2500mAh removable Li-ion battery will keep the phone running for a longer period between two charges.
