Intex, the well-known Indian manufacturer of smartphones, started its journey in 1996 with IT products. The company soon expanded to offer a phone segment and also ventured into touch-screen devices. It was in 2012 when the company expanded its portfolio and began manufacturing LED TVs and the most beloved technology products: smartphones.

The Intex mobile division has successfully delivered some popular phones in the Aqua series for price-conscious Indian consumers. The most recent Android phone from the Intex house is Elyt Dual. It is the first Intex phone with a dual-lens camera configuration. Surprisingly, Intex has offered the two lens camera configuration to the front, which suggests that the company is targeting young smartphone users who love to click on selfies.
However, given that Chinese companies work hard to offer flagship features and performance at an affordable price, Elyt Dual has to face stiff competition in India’s smartphone market. Although Elyt Dual has a good amount of competitors, including Xiaomi Redmi 4A, Moto C and Noika 2, the smartphone has some exciting features in its cube. We use the smartphone for a while, and we are sharing our experience with the public.
Front-Facing Dual-lens camera
The highlight of Intex Elyt Dual is the dual front camera configuration that can appeal to self-help enthusiasts. The dual front camera includes an 8MP sensor along with a 2 MP sensor. Intex Elyt dual also has a front LED to capture images in low light. The paper specification sounds interesting; however, when it comes to real-life performance, there is a slight delay or delay in capturing the images.
When it comes to the application of camera sensors, the primary 8MP camera is accompanied by a 2MP sensor that detects the depth of field information in the images. This allows the camera to create a bokeh effect in the selfies. The bokeh effect can be edited by clicking on the image and even after capturing the image.
Display and design: compact polycarbonate design and a 720p screen
Intex Elyt dual has a 5-inch HD IPS screen with a resolution of 720P x 1280 Pixels, which is quite common for most affordable smartphones. The screen is protected with 2.5D curved glass, which gives a certain level of protection and a slightly attractive feeling. When using Dual Intex Elyt, we found that the screen does a good job indoors and also in sunlight. The display also works well in the transmission of multimedia content, since the HD panel offers a good contrast ratio and vivid colors. Although, the aspect ratio is 16:9, which now seems outdated compared to phones with higher 18: 9 aspect ratio screens. Recently iVoomi has announced that iVoomi i1 has a price of Rs. 5,999 and offers an edge-to-edge screen for a comparatively immersive multimedia experience. You must do not, how fast mobile technology is changing in today’s world. Just two months after the release of Elyt Dual, Intex won the stiff competition from the Chinese brand.
Next, it looks and feels, Intex Elyt Dual is an Android device with a neat and well-designed look. It is made of polycarbonate plastic material that looks quite durable, and the smartphone is easy to use with just one hand. The rear panel of Intex Elyt Dual is removable, and the device has a matte finish to give it a look and feel of first quality. Elyt Dual weighs 149g along with a slim body that allows the device to fit into pockets with ease.
The charging port and the headphone jack can be found at the bottom of the smartphone, and the volume keys are on the right side of the device along with the power button.
The 8MP rear camera is an interpreter below the average
Intex Elyt Dual has an 8MP rear camera along with a dual flash that is also an average trigger. The performance of the camera is not the best in this price range, and it is only good for casual photography.
Hardware and software
Intex Elyt Dual works with a Spreadtrum 9850 quad-core 1.3 GHz and 32-bit chipset. It is combined with a 2GB RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. Fortunately, storage can be expanded up to 128 GB using a microSD card. The smartphone is strictly designed for basic everyday tasks such as calls, web browsing, checking social network applications, playing HD videos, playing music, etc. Do not expect Elyt Dual to run massive games or photo editing software without problems while the phone is backed by an entry-level processor and only has 2GB of RAM. Competitors are winning the game when it comes to processing and multitasking at the budget price point, and Intex has to propose something better than this configuration.
Intex Elyt dual runs on Android Nougat 7.0 and, as I said before, the device handles well with regular internet browsing and playback of multimedia files. The user interface is simple and easy to use since there are no unwanted trick add-ons and your Android is almost available.
With that said, let’s look at what the device offers regarding battery and connectivity.
Battery and connectivity
Intex Elyt Dual is equipped with a Li-Ion battery pack of 2,400mAH, which is once again less than what others offer at the price of a price point. However, company officials claim that the device will run a full day on a single charge and was partially correct. Although we had to charge the device twice a day while playing non-stop or watching the heavy resolution videos on YouTube, the smartphone can survive one day with a slight to moderate use. A larger battery unit would have been much appreciated. Regarding connectivity, the smartphone supports Bluetooth, 3G and 4g / LTE, Wi-Fi and GPS.
Combining it, we would say that Intex Elyt keeps focused on the lovers of the selfie, but it does not impress when it comes to the performance of the rear camera, video playback, computing, multitasking and battery life.
The device is a decent option in budget range smartphones only if you click on the selfies day and night.
