Reviews for the Coolpad Note 6

The Coolpad Note 6 seems like it's lagging behind its rivals. But being an offline only offering, the Note 6 will be more readily available than most of the critically-acclaimed mid-range phones. That seems like a conscious decision on the part of Coolpad as the brand remains popular in the tier 2 and tier 3 cities where online shopping is still a novelty. But even being an offline-only brand isn’t enough to escape the clutches of the intense competition that the mid-range market is seeing. Most of the online-dominating brands are rapidly expanding in the offline market include Xiaomi, Honor and Moto and Coolpad might have a hard time competing with them with the Note 6.

As we mentioned earlier, the segment which Coolpad Note 6 competes is terribly competitive. For a smartphone to succeed, it needs to have an edge over the competition. While the Coolpad Note 6 is a phone that might just appeal to users who want a basic smartphone. The battery life is certainly a high point but if you take into account the design and performance, you might see yourself moving on to other smartphones. Perhaps the idea was to offer a differentiator – dual front cameras -- in this segment but that also isn’t great by any standards. The Coolpad Note is just another budget smartphone offering which might just click with an average user who isn’t looking for too many details like stylish design, great performance or a very good camera.

So, should you buy the Coolpad Note 6 for Rs 8,999? No. You shouldn't until the only feature you want in your phone is great battery life. There are better phones in the market right now. Various Xiaomi Redmi phones are better. And so is the recently-launched Honor 7A, or for that matter the Nokia 3.

The Coolpad Note 6 has a few strengths. It’s built well, looks presentable, and has good battery life. The Snapdragon 435 isn’t the most appealing SoC at this price, but it’s competent enough to handle the usual messaging apps and that odd game or two. The offline availability of this phone will be a big draw for many people who still prefer to try before they buy. Do keep in mind that the cameras are pretty mediocre and the display is relatively dull. Also, while the older version of Android doesn't really lack in essential features, Coolpad needs to rectify the outdated security.
