Coolpad is the Chinese handset maker, which has been offering budget smartphones in India for a while now. It was also the first ever brand to offer the most affordable smartphone with a fingerprint scanner in India. Having paved the path with its Coolpad Note 3, the brand went on launching device after device and has become one of the much loved brand in Indian handset market. It has now launched its new Coolpad Note 5 smartphone, which happens to be the flagship and most expensive device in its arsenal. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who are planning to buy a budget smartphone soon.
Front Flash: This handset has been equipped with an impressive 8 Megapixels snapper on the front panel, which is pretty impressive by itself. However, the camera is also accompanied by a single LED flash for low light selfies.
Massive 4 GB RAM: The handset comes rocking a massive 4 GB of RAM to support its processor. We can expect it to be quite a performing powerhouse owing to the Snapdragon processor and the amount of RAM.
Fingerprint Scanner: The rear panel of this handset comes with an accurate and fast fingerprint scanner, which adds to the security of the device as well. Moreover, it is a must for any smartphone to have a scanner at this price.
Massive Battery: There are not many handsets in this price that look this good and still pack a massive battery. This device packs a massive 4010 mAh battery under the rear panel that can easily last a whole day or two on moderate usage.
Uninspired Design: The only chink in the armor of this handset is the design of the device as it looks like a copycat of recent Xiaomi and Honor smartphones. This might turn off people who are looking for a handset that stands apart.
