Reviews for the Coolpad Note 5

Coolpad Note 5 review: Another phone where battery is the focus
Source: The Indian Express English
Coolpad Note 5 does have quite a few points going for it like design, display, and battery. But the brand faces competition from rivals such as Xiaomi and Lenovo. Given Coolpad as a brand, isn’t as popular, it will have a tough time convincing users that it is worthy of the price tag.

75% Coolpad Note 5 review: A valiant effort, but not enough to topple competition
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The smartphone gets a lot right and some wrong. I was happy with the performance even though it wasn’t as good in the benchmark result. Battery life, the build quality and even the display has been done right. The UI was a bit of an overload, but it still runs smooth. The camera was probably a big disappointment as the quality did not match my expectations.

70% Coolpad Note 5 Review
Source: Think Digit English
While the Coolpad Note 5 may have more RAM than its peers, it does seem to utilise it properly. In performance, it is soundly beaten by the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and the LeEco Le 2. The best aspect of the phone is its battery life. But even then, the Redmi Note 3 and the Redmi 3S Prime can offer the same battery life. I find it very hard to recommend the Coolpad Note 5 over those other phones because of its sub-par display and comparatively weaker performance.

80% Coolpad Note 5 Review- a good choice under 10 K, but not the best
Source: Tech Magnifier English
Definitely the Coolpad Note5 has a lot of impressive features such as fast performance, long lasting battery backup and dual applications. The smartphone is a good choice, but compared to Redmi Note 3 and Le eco Le 2 the Coolpad Note 5 needs a little twitch in built and camera performance to win economic smartphones battle.

80% Coolpad Note 5 review: A budget smartphone that gets everything right
Source: Gadget Show English
As a budget smartphone, Coolpad ticks nearly all the right boxes. Be it the pleasing design, vibrant display or the lasting battery, Coolpad's newest offering left us impressed. The only downer we could find was the phone getting a little hot during gaming, but that's not a deal breaker.

Coolpad Note 5 Review - Just everything is right about it
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Currently, the sub-Rs 12,000 segment is being dominated by the likes of Le 2, Redmi Note 3, Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus and Moto G4. But this new handset might change the dynamics of the segment atleast for sometime. In terms of specs, it looks bit better than its competitors with 4 GB RAM while others have 3 GB or 2 GB RAM. The Coolpad Note 5 has infact very few cons and its pros are far too many. So in our view, if you are looking for a sub-Rs 11,000 phone, then you should keep the Coolpad Note 5 in your shortlist.

Coolpad Note 5 Review – A Fully loaded phone
Source: Gadget Diary English
Coolpad is one of the known and best smartphone player in sub 15k INR category in India. With Coolpad Note 5 they have again proved that they are serious about bringing best devices at affordable prices. The phone brings some surprisingly good specifications and offers tough competition to phones like Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. It is a very good buy at a price tag of Rs. 10,999 and personally I think if you want a device with a great camera, good performance, and impressive battery life then Coolpad Note 5 can be a good choice.

To make it a sweet deal, Coolpad could have brought us Dual Space feature in Note 5. Since Dual Space is actually a signature feature of Coolpad Max, Coolpad hasn’t provided it in the Note 5 as for now. If you don’t know about Dual Space feature, read our post explaining Dual Space feature.

Is definitely a fully-loaded phone for the price and our experience with previously-reviewed Coolpad devices is good as well. However, as with most budget phones, people still have apprehensions about their quality.

Qualcomm Adreno 405: Integrated graphics card for ARM based SoCs. Depending on the used SoC the clock rate is around 500 MHz and features 48 unified shaders.

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

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.

0.173 kg:

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).


76.6%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
