Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Excellent design - an evolution of the design pioneered on the Mega 2.5D, the Coolpad Note 5 looks and feels like a positively premium device
  • Ergonomically too, the phone is well designed and despite the larger dimensions of a phone with a 5.5 inch display, it manages to fit well in the hand
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint reader
  • Very good display - with accurate colors, wide viewing angles, and great outdoor visibility
  • Cool UI is a highly customized Android skin with lots of features to add to the Android experience - including the Dual Apps feature (allows you to maintain multiple Facebook & WhatsApp accounts), the floating C button to provide quick access to often used actions on the large display, as well as a multitude of screen based gestures
  • The software in general is well optimized and tends to run smoothly
  • On the whole the performance on the device is good in regular use, and the multitasking experience is good too
  • With it’s 4010mAh battery, the phone performs extremely well in terms of battery life, with close to 2 days of battery life with average usage
  • Classy design - one of the few budget smartphones that come with a full metal exterior
  • The matte finish, the rounded edges and light form-factor (138g) also make the M3s quite handy
  • Impressive display, at par with its top competitor - the Redmi 3s Prime- legibility under bright light is good and so is visibility from odd angles
  • Front facing fingerprint sensor is easy to set-up and quite accurate
  • Meizu's FlymeOS interface on top of Android is simple and relatively clutter-free
  • Decent performance - can handle most tasks and games comfortably and without heating issues
  • Rear camera works well in outdoor sunny conditions, and colours in close-up shots look good and sharp
  • Good battery life - lasts the whole day when used as a primary phone
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • While the performance is good overall, it is not the best in this price bracket, even with the generous 4GB of RAM - specifically the Snapdragon 617 is not quite the newest or fastest chipset around, falling behind the likes of the Snapdragon 650 powered Redmi Note 3 and Le 2
  • Average rear and front cameras - image details, and dynamic range could certainly have been better
  • Video recording performance is quite average too, with videos often looking grainy and low on details
  • The camera's low-light shots and indoor shots look noisy and washed out
  • The phone is good on the whole, but the Redmi 3S Prime has an edge over it, with a more powerful processor, bigger battery, and newer Android
