2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 4 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • 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
  • Excellent, accurate fingerprint scanner
  • 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)

Display

  • Good display - bright, vibrant, and has decent sunlight legibility
  • Display resolution is higher, but colour accuracy is not the same as the original Coolpad Note 3

Software

  • The CoolUI on top of Android lacks finesse

Performance

  • Good speed/performance
  • 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)

Camera

  • Decent camera - takes good looking vibrant images, with good detailing in close-ups

Audio

  • Very good audio quality

Battery

  • Good battery life
