Phonecurry's 2-Minute Review

quick-read review written by the phonecurry editorial team, summarising opinion across 8 Expert Reviews

What we liked

  • 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

What we didn't

  • 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
