Intex ELYT e6 is the latest entrant into the entry-level smartphone space in India and after the launch of a formidable ELYT Dual which focuses on the selfie-loving generation, this addition to the ELYT series is Intex’s attempt to show the likes of Xiaomi and Moto, what an Indian smartphone maker is capable of.
In the last couple of years, the mantra of success in this segment has been ‘offering a basic hardware package for Android’s first-timers and doubling up with some bells and whistles. Intex ELYT e6 is exactly based on this.
One look at Intex ELYT e6’s specs-sheet and one can completely decipher than it is based on its Chinese counterpart, but what stands out is the 8MP front camera and a 4000 mAh battery. As for the processor, it might be a decent unit but the introduction of 3GB RAM had made Intex ELYT e6 the most well-rounded package by the company.

Intex ELYT e6 Review (First Impressions)
- 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory is somewhat of a niche in this segment but Intex has done even better with the ELYT e6 is offering the smartphone with near-stock Android due to which users will not have to struggle from excessive bloatware and there will be a lot of storage left in the device apart from the software.
- The second biggest USP of Intex ELYT e6 is the 4000mAh battery which can deliver up to two days of juice under moderate usage and while there is no word on fast charging support, neither of its competitors comes with the option, as well.
- Moreover, the 8MP front camera with LED flash is a rare combination at this price point and this coupled with a vibrant as well as curved display, offering great being angles and decent brightness levels, is a rarely seen multimedia package in the entry-level segment.
- However, for those looking for a fingerprint scanner, there is a bad news as the Intex ELYT e6 doesn’t offer one, but neither does the Redmi 5A or Moto C Plus.
- While Moto C Plus and the Intex ELYT e6 shares the same processor, Redmi 5A comes with an SD 425 SoC which offers better power and efficiency than the MediaTek MT6737V.
What Intex ELYT e6 has to offer, are some of the segment-leading specs and performance credentials but the only thing that makes Redmi 5A the winner here, is its reliability and long-standing dominance. However, if you can trust Intex, and you should, ELYT e6 is a highly recommended device and the best from any Indian player in the market.
