Intex has added some more good features to this smartphone other than just adding a large-sized battery.

Intex also claims this is an excellent smartphone for music lovers and joggers with K Class Music Amplifier to augment the music experience. The smartphone runs on Android KitKat though nothing is said by Intex about a future upgrade to the Android Lollipop on this smartphone.
In the Box – The smartphone comes with a screen guard, protection cover, earphones and data cable.
The camera is 8 MP for the primary rear camera and 2 MP shooter for the front. Intex has added 3 more functions to help you click good pictures :

The smartphone has IPS 5.0 FWVGA(854*480) display and borrows looks from iPhone with front ring touch button design. The thickness of the smartphone is 9.3 mm and it weighs 160 gram which is good considering it packs 4000 mAH battery.

With some more battery optimization tricks like keeping the display brightness at 50%, keeping the location settings off you can further extend the battery life. Also, keep a check on processes and bad behavior apps using a software like Clean Master that can extend the battery life even further on this smartphone.
