2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good looking design
  • The matte plastic panel has ridges running from the top to bottom which makes it very grippy and for the most part, you’ll find it quite comfortable to old
  • At 170 grams, its weight is on the heavier side for a device of its class

Display

  • Decent display panel - bright, vibrant and with good sunlight legibility - though resolution is on the low side

Software

  • Coolpad UI over Android is decent, and offers a lot of customization options (although it on the heavy side, and has a lot of bloatware)

Performance

  • Delivers decent day-to-day performance - though high end tasks and gaming certainly aren’t its strong points

Camera

  • Decent front (selfie) camera - is able to take decent selfies even in low light conditions
  • Average rear camera - the heavy-handed noise reduction tends to give everything a slightly blurred out look - dynamic range too is predictably limited which means that more often than not, the highlights will be blown and you’ll lose details in the shadow region

Battery

  • Decent battery life - usually lasts the whole day - but falls behind some of the competition that delivers 4, 000 mAH or better battery

More

  • The triple-SIM implementation is unique and pretty good
  • On the whole, if triple-SIM is not really a requirement for you, there are better bets in this price range with larger batteries and generally higher degree of refinement
