The Chinese handset maker, Coolpad was the first to introduce the fingerprint scanner in the budget segment and since then has not looked back. It has launched a number of impressive handsets that have won over the hearts of price-conscious Indian buyers. The brand is now aggressively moving forward with its lineup and the collaboration with LeEco is a testament to the fact. Coolpad is now on to launching new lineup of budget handset with Cool 1 already already announced. This handset comes with cutting edge tech and has to be one of the best devices in this price range.
Why Should You buy?
Dual camera module in budget: These days, ever since iPhone 7 Plus has launched, dual camera is all the rage with smartphone camera users. However, most devices with dual camera modules are either priced too high or are out of budget for most buyers. Coolpad Cool 1 now brings the same Monochorme+Color dual camera module of iPhone 7 Plus to the budget segment. While the dual 13 Megapixels modules are not as polished as the one on Apple, it is the best one can get at this price.
Sold via both online and offline channels: This time around, the Chinese handset maker is adopting a never heard before strategy for sale. Coolpad Cool 1 will be available in two variants viz. 3 and 4 GB of RAM, with a catch. The 3GB model will be sold strictly via physical stores and 4 GB variant will be made available online. This way, even those who do not have access to the Internet will be able to get their hands on the budget dual camera device.
Large Battery: It does not make sense to most smartphone users to get the best device in their budget and having it run out of power in the middle of the day. Not Coolpad Cool 1 though, as it comes with a massive 4000 mAh battery that would last them all day long. An average user will easily see through a day on a full charge.
Corning Gorilla Glass: When you are investing your hard earned money in a device that would stay with you all day long, every security and durability feature counts. Therefore, having Corning Gorilla Glass protection on the display is a must since the display is the most important part of the handset.
Why Should You Not buy?
No Expandable Storage: The only grievance that we could find this handset is that there is no provision for expanding the storage of the device. Therefore, if you run out of the storage space and wish to expand, the only way to do so would be to get rid of some of the unnecessary data.
Lenovo Phab 2 Plus: Talking of dual camera modules on the rear panel, the only other handset that comes with the same is Phab 2 Plus. While the device is not as powerful as Coolpad Coll 1, it does come with a much bigger display and support for external SD card. In case you love to enjoy multimedia on your device and also want to be able to increase the storage, Phab 2 Plus is the way to go.
