2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Very 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 true-to-life color reproduction, and decent sunlight legibility
  • Quick and accurate fingerprint scanner
  • Very good speed/performance
  • Good camera - takes good looking vibrant images, with impressive detailing in close-ups
  • Very good audio quality
  • Very good battery life
  • 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • 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)
  • 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
