PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 4 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • 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 decent sunlight legibility
  • Excellent, accurate fingerprint scanner
  • Good speed/performance
  • Decent camera - takes good looking vibrant images, with good detailing in close-ups
  • Very good audio quality
  • Good battery life

What We Didn't

  • Display resolution is higher, but colour accuracy is not the same as the original Coolpad Note 3
  • 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)
  • 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)
