Coolpad launched the new offering of their Note series, jumping from Coolpad Note 3 to Note 5, leaving us speculated that the phone would have 5 GB of RAM, which would have been quiet mad!!
But that did not happen, but we were not one bit sad because the phone which was given in our hands made us forget of what we were expecting and made us savor what we had.
The smartphone looks impressive on paper, and it features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display with 2.5D Curved Glass and a pixel density of 401 ppi. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based Cool UI 8.0 operating system, and supports all major 4G bands in India (with 4G VoLTE support as well).
Coolpad Note 5 sports a huge 4010 mAh battery, which is above any other device found on the phone of this segment and the battery is removable, which is very rare in today’s day and helps if your battery wears out and it has fast charging and offers 200 hrs of standby on a single charge.
RAM and Processor
The device runs on a 4GB of RAM which is well ahead of the Coolpad’s competitors, 4GB RAM is bundled alongside a 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor and an ARM Cortex-A53 GPU running on a 64 – bit architecture.
The device has an in-built storage of 32GB, which is more than enough for most people, but for some of you out there this won’t be enough so the company has a 64GB expandable memory through microSD slot.
Finger print Sensor
The Coolpad Note 5 sports a fingerprint scanner as well for added security – the company is touting gesture shortcuts as well, apart from an unlocking time of 0.5 seconds. While this certainly isn’t the fastest, it’s pretty decent at this price point. The scanner is housed at the back of the device, just below the camera ring.
The device hosts a 13 MP main camera with dual flash and also has a 8 MP front camera with front flash. The camera quality is very good but lacks under low light.
The device is priced at Rs.10,999 and comes in two color offerings Space grey and champagne gold and is exclusively available only on Amazon.in and will be available from 20 October.
