Question: How cool is the camera performance of CoolPad Note 3?

Answer: Frankly, performance of CoolPad Note 3 camera has been much better than our initial expectations. At the rear end, it sports a 13MP shooter built with five element f/2.0 aperture lens and brandishes large 1.4 mPixel size. For lowlight photography, it comes with a LED flash.

Day light images were well exposed and rich in details, and performance understandably degraded indoors. We had to hold our hand stable to avoid blur, even though shutter speed was fast.

Answer: CoolPad Note 3 houses a 3000mAh battery which is a stunner. Overnight, the device could only eat up three percent of total battery.

Question: Can we remove battery in CoolPad Note 3?

Question: How loud is the loudspeaker of the phone?

Answer: Even though phone has got single speaker at the back, it was quite audible in noise ambient conditions.

Question: How is the software and User Interface of CoolPad Note 3?

Answer: CoolPad Note 3 comes with Cool UI v6.0 which is based on Android 5.1. The UI design isn’t very vibrant as, say, MIUI, and we can’t help but feel that it’s still work in progress. Having said that, there are several features like double tap to wake, gesture support and customization options which are quite useful.

Question: What comes inside the box of CoolPad Note 3?

Answer: Inside the box, we found a Handset, Headset, 2 Ampere Charger, USB Cable, User Manual and Warranty Card.

Conclusion:

Well, we have to say the phone has impressed us keeping it price and specification in mind. Mediatek MT6753 octa-core processor clocked at 1.6GHz coupled with 3GB of RAM, 13MO camera and fingerprint sensor make it a hot cake in its price range. With Note 3 CoolPad has got all the basis covered. Multitasking is brilliant, fingerprint sensor is fast as well as accurate, camera is sharp and battery offers excellent standby time.

  3. Hi,
    I recently purchased coolpad note3 lite. I tried to move Whatsapp to “SD Card”. It shows app has moved to SD Card, but in reality whatsapp files and folders are still inside “Phone Storage”.

    I wonder Why? I never had such issue with my older Android phones.

    Coolpad Guys says “you can’t save whatsapp data directly to sd card.
    even after move app to sd card it remains in internal storage. just like OBB files[becoz of security purposes]”

    I now have very much doubt that coolpad OS has some kind of malware that fools android OS that app has been move to SD card, but in reality its still on phone storage.

    I have screenshots for what I say …. Can anyone Advice ?

    Regards

  4. […] Coolpad Note 3 distinctly helped Coolpad become a familiar house hold name in India. The key ingredient was the Fingerprint sensor, which against all odds, worked perfectly even on a budget handset. Coolpad is now sticking to the same tried and tested formula and intends to replicate the same success with the ‘Lite’ variant, which is now the most affordable handset with a handy fingerprint sensor.

  7. Hi
    I have been using Coolpad Note 3 for around 6 months and there’s no flaw or anything. Sometimes it lags but I can live with that. My main query is that I came to know there is a cable that can let u connect hard drives or pendrives directly with your phone. It’s an OTG cable and I ordered it, on the website it was written that the cable is compatible with all Android devices but when I connect it to my phone, my phone doesn’t detect the hard drive. The light of my hard drive glows which means it is successfully connected but I can’t access it on my phone. It is driving me crazy so pls if anyone has a solution to this problem, give 2 minutes of ur time and explain the process to me. Please
