phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 6 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • 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

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • 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
