Reviews for the Coolpad Cool 3 Plus
Source: NDTV Gadgets Archive.org version
Coolpad has tried to put together a decent low-cost package, and at Rs. 6,499, the higher-end variant of this phone is one of only a few options in the market which has 3GB of RAM and a fingerprint sensor. However, the overall system, camera, and battery performance leaves a lot to be desired. Plus, with just 32GB of onboard storage, we expected the phone to have a dedicated microSD card slot instead of having to compromise on using two SIM cards.

At Rs 5,999 for 2GB/16GB and Rs 6,499 for 3GB/32GB, the Coolpad Cool 3 Plus is an average device and there are some key issues with photography and slow charging speed. However, we must understand that it is a budget smartphone and most smartphones in this price range do have problems with photography or charging. Other budget alternatives such as the Realme C2 and Nokia 2.2, might be a better option for users who want a budget smartphone that delivers on these parameters as well.

For the price it holds, the Cool 3 Plus starts at Rs 5,999 for its base variant i.e. 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage and Rs 6,499 for its 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage variant which is highly affordable. If you have an extremely tight budget and want an entry-level Android smartphone, consider the Coolpad Cool 3 Plus, it competes with the likes of Realme C2 and Redmi 7A in terms of pricing. If you can extend your budget slightly, the Realme C2 is an ideal alternative.

Priced at Rs 7,999 for the 3GB/32GB variant, the Coolpad Cool 3 Plus is a good-looking device with a decent display, but underperforming hardware somewhat mar the overall experience. Consider this phone for good design and display in the segment where it competes with good products like like Realme C2, Redmi 7A, etc.

The major stand-out feature of the Coolpad Cool 3 Plus is the fact that it offers a fingerprint scanner at a price point which no other brand is doing at the moment. The design and display are both good and add a modern touch, and while cameras seem promising in daylight, that’s where the positives end. It’s the not phone to get for performance, battery or low-light photography, and those are exactly the areas where the Realme C2 takes the lead. It’s still not a bad deal for Rs. 5,999 though.

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Smartphones from Germany are marketed under this brand. The market shares are very low, especially outside of the German-speaking areas. There are only few reviews and the ratings are below-average (as of 2016).
65.33%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
