2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good looking, premium design with a metal body, and curved-edge glass
  • Sharp, bright screen that makes sure that games and movies look great
  • Gorilla Glass 4 protection for the display
  • The Coolpad UI has a number of useful features built-in such as a split screen mode, and a "private space" mode
  • Decent camera both for still images and videos
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Decent battery life
  • Quick-charging support for battery
  • 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]
  • Performance is decent overall, but there are better performing phones in this price bracket - if you want features like 4K video recording and super-smooth 3D gaming, you'll have to look elsewhere
  • The Coolpad UI is not the most refined Android experience
  • Tends to get a bit warm when used for a long time
  • Fingerprint reader sometimes doesn't work on the first try
  • 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
