Coolpad Note 3S Review
Coolpad just a few months back entered Nepal, and they have launched the Coolpad Note 3s. It is the only phone in Nepali Market to offer 3GB of RAM and a Fingerprint reader as of now. This phone has killer specification at least on paper. So, today we can test how true the claims of company are.
Coolpad Note 3S is a plastic body designed, a phone with gold edges and glossy back which seems like metal finish. The display area is roofed by a pair of 2.5D glass that curves around the edges and provides an additional three-dimensional look to the front of the phone. It measures 154.50 X 77.00 X 8.60 (height X breadth X thickness) and weigh 167.00 grams. The buttons and fingerprint sensing element on the Note 3S area unit are simply accessible. The volume buttons are placed on the left, the power button on the right and also the fingerprint sensor is positioned on the rear right below the camera. Below the display, there are three capacitive buttons on the phones.
As the screen size is concerned, the Coolpad Note 3S features a 5.5-inch display with a screen resolution of 720 X 1280p, which is low for this screen size, however, different competitors area offering full HD at a similar price value. Coolpad smartphone doesn’t have many options to customize the display colours and saturation. The screen could be a bit reflective, which means it can be troublesome to browse on direct daylight.
The device sits absolutely inside the budget class and has specifications to match. The Coolpad note 3S is packed with 1.3 GHz Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 64 bit processor and Adreno 405 GPU. The smartphone is packed with 32GB of internal storage which can be additionally expanded up to 128GB via SD card.
Regarding the connectivity, Note 3s offers dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, WiFi (802.eleven b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, a micro USB port. The device is prepared to address most of the everyday tasks you throw at it and is also good at managing multi-tasking. On the other hand, the fingerprint detector is quick enough and unlocks the device quickly.
Games like Asphalt 8 and FIFA 16 played well. There was no overheating on the back while gaming or camera usage.
Coolpad Note 3S has a 13-megapixel raise camera and a 5-megapixel front shooter. Which is almost the standard with most Chinese cell phones on this price segment?
The Note 3S cameras have a fast shutter, but under low light or artificial light pictures came out noisy and under saturated. The auto mode shoots cranking the ISO to the highest setting which results in piles of clear shading noise when clicked in low light conditions. Using the flashlight mode settles this issue on some extend.
The front camera is very fine but, for its low light potential. It Senses up the light falling on the face utilizing its face discovery tool and lighting up the photo to a degree that the face within the picture turns out to be sufficiently vibrant. Image processing takes a bit of time and you need to hold the camera still to get the focus right.
The one part of the phone that we were truly let around was the battery life. A little 2,500 mAh battery falls long ways behind the opposition and along these lines, the phone battles to endure an entire day of expanded utilize. Indeed, even with light use, you’ll certainly need to charge the phone overnight. But there is support for quick charging, which is an appreciated feature at this price segment.
The Note 3s runs Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) with the stock Android interface rather than the Cool UI, which the phone creator utilizes as a part of all its cell phones. The interface looks common and offers low customization’s. As we specified before, the pre-installed applications are Amazon Shopping and Xploree keyboard. Contrasted with what we regularly observe from gadgets in this range of phones, the Note 3S has very few bolt-wares and can be said bloat-free.
If you like Coolpad hardware and love near-stock ROM experience then, the Coolpad Note 3s is for you. It is also one of the good-looking phones on the price segment so far. For a customer looking for Phone under Rs. 20,000 with good features and good performance, Coolpad Note 3s is worth the price. Further, it also toughens the competition for Xiaomi, Oppo, Gionee etc.
