Reviews for the Coolpad Mega 3

Cool Mega 3 review: Do you really need a triple SIM phone?
Source: The Indian Express English
The Mega 3 comes with three SIM card holders, which work quite well and in sync with each other. However, I feel the company has traded off a couple of important features such as a good camera, and battery to put in the three SIM card functionality. Ask yourself if you really need three SIM cards in a phone? If yes, then this is your only solution.

59% Coolpad Mega 3 Review

The Coolpad Mega 3 will appeal to the niche audience who require more than two SIM card slots on their phone, but beyond that it is a pretty average phone.

60% Coolpad Mega 3 Triple-SIM Phone Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
When a low-cost phone claims to have one standout feature, it usually means that other aspects of it are going to be disappointing. With the Coolpad Mega 2.5D, looks were the top priority and performance suffered pretty much across the board. This time around, Coolpad has given the Mega 3 its own unique feature, but not at the cost of core functionality.

65% Coolpad Mega 3 Review: Buy it only if you use 3 SIM cards
Source: India Today English
Coolpad has a number of phones in the Rs 5000-11,000 category and there are generally no good reasons why you should choose one over the other. But that is not the case with Coolpad Mega 3. It comes with its own flaws and does not improve on ones posed by its predecessors. But overall, it doesn't come close to the experience the Note 3 could offer in the same price.

60% Coolpad Mega 3 review: When a dual-SIM handset is not enough
Source: Gadget Show English
The Coolpad Mega 3 will sure be winning hearts of those who want a budget smartphone below Rs 10,000. The handset has a decent camera, good battery life and an average display. The build is not really that appealing but not bad either. Add them all, and we think that the Coolpad Mega 3 is quite a value for money device at a price of Rs 6,999.

Coolpad Mega 3 Review: Does it deliver?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Now for the final statement, if you would ask us, we would not recommend the Mega 3 even for the price of Rs 6,999. The smartphone though comes with decent battery life, but it lacks in terms of UI, Camera and the built quality. The only advantage one can be sure of is the Triple SIM functionality. The display is fine as well but when it comes to day-to-day usage, we have better alternatives. If you want to stick to the company, the Mega 2.5D is a decent performer or one can any day pick up the famous Xiaomi Redmi 3S. You can also wait for our review for the recently launched Xolo Era 2X which claims to be the cheapest smartphone sporting a fingerprint sensor.

Coolpad Mega 3 Review
Source: Fone Arena English
The Coolpad Mega 3 is a very peculiar device. Really, there’s not much of a competition for the phone given that hardly anyone makes triple SIM devices. If that is not something that you are looking for then Coolpad’s other devices or Xiaomi’s Redmi series might prove to be a better bet due to the larger batteries and generally higher degree of refinement.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Coolpad:

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).


61%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
