Intex Aqua 5.5 VR Plus genuine Review - Dont Buy Intex Aqua 5.5 VR Plus - Board complaint and low battery backup issues

Intex Aqua 5.5 VR Plus  Review - Dont Buy Intex Aqua 5.5 VR+ - Board complaint and low battery backup issues

I bought an Intex Aqua 5.5 VR Plus on April 23, 2018, With in a week it started to show Battery backup issues. Even if it is charged full, it will completely drain out with in 12 or 13 hours. During this time No internet was used, only 2 or 3 calls were done. Some times there was issues with net connection also.

I took this mobile to Intex authorised service center in Aluva ( Touchees communications, 1st Floor, Mulavarickal Building. Opp. Private Bus Stand, Market, Road, Aluva, Kerala - 683101 ). After checking they informed me that the mobile is showing some Board issues. So I asked for replacement. They told me that replacement was possible if it happened with in week after the purchase. They suggested for a board repair and send the mobile for board fixing and I need to wait for a couple of weeks. I am sure that this was an inbuilt error and I dont belive this thing will work. I bought this as i saw it was a "Make in India" product. If Intex cannot maintain atleast some basic Qualities for their product...then why they are making such CRAPs. So I humbly request NOT to buy any of their mobiles.

Here is the timeline:

  • On April 16 2018, I orderd INTEX AQUA 5.5 VR Plus via Flipkart
  • I received it on April 23, 2018
  • A couple of weeks later, I noticed the power backup Issue.
  • On June 9, 2018 , I visited the Service Center (Touchees communications) at Aluva Ernakulam. They checked the mobile and said there was some board issues and will send to replace board. Job Sheet number which I received on my mobile after submission of mobile is 806096245003T001
  • Next Day I contacted INTEX via Phone (at Intex Helpline Number: 1860 108 5555) and their Facebook page and requested for Money Refund. Later their executives called me and offered new phone. I asked them , If the new mobile show any such issues, then what will happen. To this they answered that they will give a refund.  I have the audio clip (3:59 duration) of the conversation  happened on June 11, 2018 at 12:36 pm from the mobile +917012400239 . The conversation is in Malayalam ( Clip is here )   
  • On  June 28, 2018, I received a New phone (same model).
  • On July 4,2018 ,  I have noticed that battery backup is just 16 hours when internet is connected and watzup is the only thing which is installed. Infact there are lots of third party apps (like gaana , amazon shopping etc) which Intex have built in with their version of Android Operating System, which I have disabled.
  • July 6, I have charged the mobile to 100%. Now disabled the internet and trying to check how long it will last.
  • July 7, Even after fully charged, the charge last only for less than 10 hours, without using internet ( in Cellular data NOT enabled mode). I have tried all the methods specified by the INTEX customer care team, but nothing worked.
  • July 14, 2018 . I had submitted the phone to their Customer care center at Aluva. I had asked them for a refund.
  • July 16. I have received a call from a Customer care person saying the issue is fixed and to collect the phone. I said , I don't want that phone anymore and I need the refund.
  • July 17. Here is the Job sheet number which I received after submitting the phone 807176245003T001
  • July 18: Received a call from Intex customer care ( number +91-1203881000 ) stating that  they have forwarded the request for further action and things will get resolved by July 23, 2018.

  • On July 28, I received a call from Chennai, stating that the refund can be processed only to Name given in invoice. I had purchased the mobile through my friends Flipkart account, for payment I used my Net Banking details. So i was asked to send my friends ID proof. I whatsapped all the docs on July 30, 2018
