2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good build quality with aluminum inner frame for higher stability
  • Good ergonomics - soft matte rear texture offers good amount of grip and good in-hand feel
  • Beautiful design with large screen to body ratio and metal band around the edges
  • Good display - bright, vibrant, and has decent sunlight legibility
  • Excellent, accurate fingerprint scanner
  • Good speed/performance
  • Decent camera - takes good looking vibrant images, with good detailing in close-ups
  • Very good audio quality
  • Good battery life
  • Well built
  • Quite good at heat management - doesn't heat up even when put under a lot of stress
  • Decent camera
  • Great battery life (can easily last over a day)
  • Useful "Ultra Power Saving" mode
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Display resolution is higher, but colour accuracy is not the same as the original Coolpad Note 3
  • The performance too is a step down from the original Coolpad Note 3, and the GPU seems under-powered to handle a 1080p screen, which means gaming performance specifically suffers (the general performance is pretty decent though)
  • The CoolUI on top of Android lacks finesse
  • There's also Coolpad's Xploree keyboard, with its integrated Yahoo search and tracking that displays targeted ads which can be annoying (although this can be disabled)
  • Looks cheap and utilitarian, compared to the much more premium designs of its competitors
  • The dimensions are a tad too big, at least for people with small hands
  • Display on the J7 falls short of expectations - colors are a little off, it's a bit on the dim side, and lacks an auto-brightness setting
  • No Gorilla glass protection on the display
  • Overall performance is good, but the phone is still underpowered compared to its top competition
  • Average camera
  • Loudspeaker is not particularly loud, and having it on the back makes it cumbersome still
  • No fingerprint sensor
  • Also lacks notification LED, gyroscope and a magnetometer or magnetic sensor
