Intex Cloud 3G Candy Specs & Price

The sweetly-named Intex Cloud 3G Candy is a much cheaper alternative to the Cloud 3G Gem which is seemingly targeted at those users that are willing to give up a bit of what is provided on the latter device for an even more pocket-friendly price. The dirt-cheap smartphone retains the same display and processor, but comes with lower RAM and onboard storage.

Intex Cloud 3G Candy

Build and Display

Featuring a plastic body, the Intex Cloud 3G Candy looks less pleasing to the eyes compared to its more-expensive cousin – this was most likely done on purpose. It also comes in slightly thicker at 10.1 millimetres. The phone looks just like what you’d expect a smartphone this cheap to look like.

It packs a 4-inch capacitive touch display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The clarity should be good enough, but wide-angle viewing is not to be expected.

Camera and Storage

The Intex Cloud 3G Candy packs the same pair of simple cameras provided on its slightly costlier cousin. The primary camera uses a 2-megapixel sensor and features LED flash. You also get a VGA front-facing camera for whatever quality of selfies it can give you.

Onboard storage capacity is a very miserable 512 MB; please don’t ask us what you can do with the measly allocation. Luckily, there is a microSD card slot for adding up to 32 GB more.

Performance and OS

The heavy-lifting duty on the Intex Cloud 3G Candy is allocated to a single-core Spreadtrum SC7715 processor – a wicked decision you may say. The entry-level CPU has its maximum speed capped at 1 GHz and gets support from a highly paltry 256 MB of RAM limiting the level of performance to realistically expect.

It’s been a long while since we saw an Android smartphone with memory this low. It boots Android 4.4 KitKat operating system.

Other Features

The same 1,400mAh juicer provided on the Cloud 3G Gem also powers this highly affordable smartphone and supports up to six hours of talk time and 350 hours of standby time.

The Intex Cloud 3G Candy has a dual-SIM feature. In addition to 3G connection support, the smartphone offers microUSB, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for your connectivity needs.

Pricing and Availability

Intex Cloud 3G Candy is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Intex Cloud 3G Candy Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N9,000 to N15,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
