Comparison:

We have had many smartphone launches of late around the Rs. 5,000-8,000 mark to compete with the Moto E and there has been some great devices to give the Moto E a tough competition but the Moto E still remains in a league of its own. The Intex Aqua devices are priced to compete with the Moto E. So, let’s take a look at how Intex’ new devices fare against the Moto E and the Micromax Unite A092.

The Intex Aqua devices are surely great on paper. Both the devices have some decent specifications and the camera on these devices are surely superior to the competition (atleast on paper). So, if you want a smartphone with a good camera at this price, the Intex Aqua devices might be your only option.

Rest of the specs are decent enough but the Moto E packs in a better display, larger battery and better design while the Micromax Unite A092 features more internal storage. At the end, it all depends on you and what you need the most.
