2-minute Review [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
  • Beautiful, premium, full metal unibody design, which is rare to find in this price segment
  • Very good build quality
  • Feels light and easy to use, with good ergonomics
  • Good display with good colors and sharpness (although brightness levels could have been better)
  • Pleasant looking eUI skin on top of Android
  • Excellent, top-class performance
  • Although the processor is a tiny downgrade from the LeEco Le 1s (down to 1.85GHz from 2.2 GHz), the actual difference is performance is negligible
  • Decent fingerprint sensor
  • Decent camera in well lit conditions
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Decent battery life
  • Fast charging support
  • Free bundled LeEco Membership package for a year which provides access to Live TV, curated video, 5TB cloud storage, and music services from LeEco
2-minute Review [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
  • Camera low-light performance is average
  • The LeEco content services are quite tightly integrated into the interface, so if you're never going to use the provided content or cloud storage, these apps will just get in your way and it might be better to choose the vanilla Le 1s
