Intex recently launched two new entry-level budget smartphones in India. The all-new Infie 33 and Infie 3 are priced below Rs. 6000, and that’s great news for the budget minded. The phones feature a tall display, decent specifications, and are well priced. Therefore, in this post, we decided to compare the two phones with last years Redmi 5A smartphone.
The Redmi 5A from Xiaomi is also priced around the same, which is why this comparison would make sense. If you are planning to buy the new Intex phones, then you should read through this.

The Redmi 5A was released in December 2017 and is currently available for purchase online at a price of Rs. 5,999. This is for the 2GB RAM and 16GB variant, whereas the 3GB/32GB variant costs Rs. 6,999.
Redmi 5A vs Intex Infie 33 vs Intex Infie 3: Design, Display
The design of the Redmi 5A is definitely better looking than the Intex smartphones. You get a nice aluminium body, with rounded corners and a 5.0-inch HD display. The Intex Infie 33 has a 5.34-inch display, but only has an FWVGA+ resolution. The Infie 3 has a smaller 4.95-inch display, and both the phones use plastic materials for construction.
Redmi 5A vs Intex Infie 33 vs Intex Infie 3: Performance, Hardware Specifications
In terms of performance, once again, the Redmi 5A is the clear winner here. The Redmi 5A is equipped with a Snapdragon 425 processor, which is coupled with up to 3GB of RAM And 32GB of internal storage. It has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
On the other hand, the Intex smartphones feature a Spreadtrum quad-core processor clocked at 1GHz, and only get 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. Of course, all three devices have a microSD slot for storage expansion, a 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi, GPS, and so on. However, the Redmi 5A is simply a better buy.
Redmi 5A vs Intex Infie 33 vs Intex Infie 3: Camera Features
Again, the Redmi 5A is the winner in this comparison. It features a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. The Intex Infie 33 has 5MP cameras on both front and rear of the device. You do get an LED flash at the front as well, for better selfies. On the Infie 3, you get a single 5MP camera at the back, and a 2MP unit on the front.
Redmi 5A vs Intex Infie 33 vs Intex Infie 3: Battery, OS
Coming to the battery capacity, the Redmi 5A is matched by the Intex Infie 33. Both phones come with a 3000mAh battery, but do not support fast charging. The Infie 3 has a 2000mAh battery.
As for software, the Redmi 5A Android 7.1.2 Nougat with MIUI 9.0 on top, but that will soon be upgraded to Oreo. The Infie 33 from Intex also runs Android 7.1 Nougat, and the Infie 3, being an Android GO smartphone, runs on Android 8.1 Oreo.
Redmi 5A vs Intex Infie 33 vs Intex Infie 3: Verdict

The Redmi 5A is the definitive winner over here, and Xiaomi is having a flash sale for the device on 19th July over at their website.
