Looks: A chunky Avatar The latest from Intex is the new Avatar 3D phone. The device seems very sturdy in terms of looks and design. It has a silver finished look on the front and a shiny black finish at the back.

Hardware: Touchy feely stuff

The avatar 3D comes with a 2.8 inch resistive touchscreen, with an acceptable enough response. It is a dual SIM phone that can support two GSM connections, though it comes with dual standby function. Other connectivity options include USB, GPRS and Bluetooth. Internal memory of the phone stands at about 67 MB and can be expanded using a micro SD card - a 4 GB card comes bundled.

Software: The 3D side

The highlight of Intex Avatar is its 3D capability. There are some interesting UI touches too. You get the option of having a pond as your screen saver where you can add and delete fish, lotuses, and leaves. Similarly, digital snow keeps falling on the homescreen, covering the elements on the screen – a privacy feature that stops people from snooping at your phone’s contents while it is in idle mode. Then comes the app tray. Swiping up the tray makes the menu icons swirl up and swiping down makes them fall. All of which is cool, although it does not really add much in functional terms. On the 3D front, the phone comes with 3D content like movies and also claims to be able to convert 2D content into 3D and vice versa. You will need 3D (anaglyph) glasses to view 3D and they come in the sales pack. The 3D experience, alas, is forgettable and blurry – yes, we had not expected much at this price level but we still wish it had been executed better. The phone comes with two high profile games - Fbird and FruitNinja.

Multimedia: Nothing to rave about

The Avatar comes with a music player and FM radio. The loudspeaker is in the front and serves up sound of an acceptable quality. The FM radio reception is okay. The phone also has a 2.0-megapixel camera with a LED flash, but the results are nothing to write home about, notwithstanding features like night mode, continuous shot, white balance, and self timer. The video quality is average.

User experience: An average deal

The 3D aspect is supposed to be the Avatar’s strongest point. Alas, it is a bit of a damp squib in terms of execution. That apart, we found the device to be a decent dual SIM affair, with nothing rave-worthy, but nothing too bad either. The battery of the phone gives a decent backup, one full charge with three hours of videos, music and calling lasts for more than a day. If you are really into 3D then you can consider this device.

 

Intex Avatar 3D Rating

It is difficult to get a 3D phone at this price point. However, you can consider Karbonn K1818 with a 3.2-megapixel camera and costing Rs 3,700.
