There are Dedicated buttons for music , GSM calling and CDMA calling with a torch light. Here is our review of the Intex 5030 which is a Triple SIM phone

Here are the box contents

Triple Business Management

  • Inbox view is very clear categorizing Sim 1 inbox , Sim 2 inbox , R-UIM (CDMA) inbox . there is no confusion at accessing your calls and inbox messages regardless of they from any of the 3 sims.
  • Contacts have 2 types of searches Quick search and search contact and quick being more faster .
  • Contacts memory 250+250+250+1000
  • While selecting the SIM we can customize which SIM slots are enabled
  • Provision for chat , mms,voice mail server , broadcast message is available. Gprs Settings for few of the telecom operators are already in built in the phone.


  • In the Menu Intex has provided 9 icons which include Phone book , Messages , Call History , Fun & Games , Multimedia , Settings , User profiles , Organizer and Services
  • Phone has choice of 3 themes blue, golden, reddish black


  • Multimedia menu contains Camera, Image viewer , Video recorder , Video player , Audioplayer , Sound recorder , FM radio , Schedule FM recording, File manager .
  • Intex made music experience simple by providing dedicated buttons on the front of the phone itself , it has 3 buttons to start , forward and stop the audio player .
  • Phone has decent sound output and  connecting to both 200 w speakers and 800 w speakers produced clear audio.
  • 3.5 mm jack is not present but there is a 2.5mmconnector.
  • Schedule FM lets you record FM Radio. It is a simple voice recorder and when you schedule a recording loud speaker gets activated and is captured along with the background noise.
  • There is Customizable settings for equalizer of Audio (Normal Bass Dance classical Treble Party Pop Rock) , shuffle , background play for multi tasking , bt stereo output provision , lyrics display .
  • It also has 3rd party application which makes your phone a remote control for your laptop or personal computer , it worked and was fun to use.


Camera is a bit disappointing as it has only 1.3MP Camera but it has zoom option and comes with multiple photo shoot options.

File manager

The phone supports memory cards up to 2 GB. Down side is one needs to depend on memory card solely as you cant save anything on the phone as the inbuilt memory is just 251 kb .


Calender , Tasks , Alarm , Calculator , Currency converter , World clock , Ebook reader (dint work) , Bluetooth.


Torch light have a great back up , I tested it in extreme conditions , my battery was about to die but and I started the torch and to my surprise phone went of but battery stayed alive for another 2 hrs.Browsing did work on the WAP browser.

Final verdict

Intex 5030 is low on price (Rs.4700)but has some good features . Other handsets in this category are Videocon VC1425 (Rs.5795 ) Olive Wiz (Rs.6000) has an upper hand with QWERTY keyboard . Triple SIM , stable battery life , great signal reception , voice clarity , good triple sim management gives the Intex 5030 upper hand over the few other handsets of this category.

  • Nice phone and above all a very nice review. But i feel there is one more Triple SIM Mobile from Videocon, Videocon VC1425 and one from Olive known as Olive Wiz. I feel one should compare between all three before going for this phone, however nothing against this phone.

    I lost interest in Intex phone when i bought intex qwerty phone for 2000 rs, its ringtones sound is so low that it cant be heard even if the phone is in your pocket.Vibrator is worst,i could say.It even misses basic feature like adding a meetin/task/reminder in the calendar.

    • Hi UD,
