Intex Aqua Trend is originally priced at Rs 9990, but it is available on Snapdeal and it costs Rs 9899. It seems the Intex Aqua Trend is not much cheaper than original price on Snapdeal right now. The price of Elephone S3 is not available right now and it requires some time for the upcoming 2016 bezelless smartphone.

Intex Aqua Trend Specs Review – Design and compare with Elephone S3

The whole design of Intex Aqua Trend is favorable. Intex Aqua Trend has a brushed metal Unibody back cover, which make this entry level smartphone look elegant even with a budget price. At the top left corner of the metallic back cover is the 13MP camera with a LED flash, no fingerprint sensor is found on the back shell. It is assumed that Intex Aqua Trend does not support fingerprint scanner security. All the functional buttons and port are on the curved metal middle frame, the power button and volume controls are on the left side, the headphone jack and USB port are separately on the top and bottom side. Moving on to the front, Intex Aqua Trend has a common design like most of Android smartphones, the 5.0-inch touch screen and two bars, where locate front camera, microphone and the standard set of three capacitive buttons.

Elephone S3 also has a metal Unibody, which looks much higher end. The metallic back cover does not use the brushed technology so the Elephone metal Unibody has a smoother and better hand-grip feeling. The rear camera is square at the top middle of Elephone S3 back cover with a LED flash and the fingerprint sensor below. Comparing Intex Aqua Trend with Elephone S3 in their designs, Elephone S3 is more preferred with the 2016 mainstream.
