The main highlight of this phone is a 5-megapixel selfie snapper. However, the phone has a lower resolution screen which can be a major let down for potential customers. There are other smartphones with a better screen in this price range, notable the Huawei Honor Holly and Xiaomi Redmi 1s. Intex Aqua Star II runs KitKat 4.4.2 which is kind of outdated, but there are other smartphones in the sub -15K margin running Android Lollipop.
