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
  • Flagship-grade design with a beautiful metal unibody
  • Beautiful, large, sharp display, with excellent contrast levels
  • eUI on top of Android is a nice, clutter-free, and butter-smooth experience, and has welcome customization options
  • Top-end performance backed by latest, top-end chipset
  • Very good fingerprint scanner
  • Excellent video player with seamless 4K playback
  • Very good loudspeaker
  • The Le Max 2 camera gets most things right with plenty of detail, contrast, and dynamic range and good HDR and Panorama modes as well
  • The 2160p videos are equally good as the still images from the main camera - fluid frame-rate, great detail, nice contrast, colors and dynamic range
  • Free bundled 1 year LeEco content subscription is a pretty nice value-add
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
  • Heavy and a bit cumbersome
  • Battery life is decent, but could have been better
  • You will need to use CDLA compliant USB-C headphones to actually derive the benefit of the lossless audio technology (instead of using standard jack headphones with the bundled USB-C to 3.5mm jack adapter)
  • You will not be able to charge the phone at the same time as listening to music, which could be an inconvenience
  • No NFC support
