Reviews for the Coolpad Legacy

88% Coolpad Legacy review: Small price tag, big screen, impressive battery
Source: Techaeris English version
If you’re a MetroPCS/T-Mobile customer or looking to switch to them, the Coolpad Legacy is a great deal. That is if none of the trappings of flagship phones have you thinking otherwise. No, you’re not going to get flagship camera performance or flagship gaming performance. But for the amount you’re saving, you probably don’t mind. Not all of us have $US1,000+ laying around and not all of us want to finance that much. Some of us just want to pay for the phone outright and not worry about owing or paying a monthly bill for it. The Coolpad Legacy is the phone that will do that for you. No, it’s not for everyone, but there are a lot of people who will love this price and for the price, it’s got the goods.

Coolpad Legacy review: A premium-like phone without the premium price
Source: Android Authority English version
This is a great phone for $130. It packs features you’d expect from a high-dollar device, like face recognition, fingerprint scanning, and AI-enhanced photography. It’s speedy enough to get things done and performs well under gaming pressure. My only real big complaint is the camera, which was hit or miss regarding exposure and the AI. Moreover, additional color options for the phone itself would be ideal given the company targets families. Hot Pink and Midnight Blue would be great options for teens and younger kids. If you’re looking for good performance and cool features, the Coolpad Legacy is a great prepaid solution at an unbeatable price.

Qualcomm Adreno 506: Integrated graphics card in the Snapdragon 625 SoC and based on the new 500-series architecture with support for Vulkan, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE (3.2) and UBWC.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

SD 450: Lower mainstream octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 SoC clocked at up to 1.8 GHz and the Adreno 506 GPU, a LPDDR3 single channel memory controller as well as an X9 LTE (Cat. 7 300 / 150 Mbps) modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

» 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).

88%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
