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
  • Compact, smart looking, premium design with a metal build - very similar to the Redmi Note 3, but more easy to handle (because of the smaller size)
  • Excellent ergonomics, with the curves on the back making the phone very comfortable to hold
  • Light-weight with an excellent weight distribution, despite the large battery it holds inside
  • Nice, vibrant, and bright display, with excellent touch-responsiveness, and good viewing angles
  • MIUI is a one of the better Android skins around
  • Very good speed/performance - one of the best in this price range
  • Decent camera
  • Excellent battery life - easily lasts a day and a half in regular use
  • Good audio quality
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)
  • Camera is decent, and almost at par with the more expensive Redmi Note 3, but still could have been better, especially with low light performance
  • Loudspeaker volume could have been better
