phonecurry editor's note based on opinion across 4 expert review(s)

WHAT WE LIKED
  • Very 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 true-to-life color reproduction, and decent sunlight legibility
  • Quick and accurate fingerprint scanner
  • Very good speed/performance
  • Good camera - takes good looking vibrant images, with impressive detailing in close-ups
  • Very good audio quality
  • Very good battery life

WHAT WE DIDN'T
  • 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)
