The budget phone segment in India is super competitive right now and presents diverse options in the sub-Rs 10,000 segment. Smartphone manufacturers have been eyeing Indian market and recently the Chinese brands have started unveiling phones designed especially for Indian demographic, appealing to Indian customers of every budget and choice. For example, the Realme 1 and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 are smartphones manufactured only for Indian consumers. Coolpad is also aiming to tap into this burgeoning market and is back in game with a new set of products. Coolpad Note 6 starts at Rs 8,999 and is big on selfie and battery life. It has a dual selfie camera to attract selfie lovers. Also, it comes with a Snapdragon processor which definitely is a favorite these days. Coolpad hasn’t yet been able to make a significant mark in budget phone segment. Somehow it has fallen short in hitting the bull’s eye unlike Xiaomi and Redmi, and Oppo. But will Note 6 be able to turn the table for Coolpad? It’s been a while since Coolpad has unveiled any smartphones. Let’s see what features it is offering and how promising its future looks.
To start off with, the Coolpad Note 6 runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz which is designed for budget phones and it is good to have this in Note 6. Having said that, this SoC isn’t the best in the lot compared to what Oppo and Redmi are offering. The phone comes in two variants and both are equipped with a 4GB RAM. As you take the phone out of the box it feels plasticky yet solid and sturdy enough to pull off the show. There are no bezels or classy modern design. It has simple round curves with thick borders. The phone has 2.5D Corning Gorilla glass on top of its 5.5-inch screen. The back is a shimmery finish with multiple cutouts to make room for the camera lens and LED flash on the top left. There is no fingerprint sensor in Note 6. The front is the usual with dual lenses and flashed on either side of the microphone. The lower side of the screen has the age old home button and navigation keys with no backlit display. The design is pretty dated in Coolpad Note 6 and does not feel like modern at all. Clearly, Coolpad has done a minimalistic job in designing this phone. The Home button also serves as the fingerprint sensor. The dual SIM card slots and micro-SD slot are found on the left age. Thankfully, this phone has a dedicated slot for SD cards. On the bottom edge is the 3.5 mm headphone jack, Micro USB port and the speaker grille. The Coolpad Note 6 comes in two variants of 32GB and 64GB. The memory is expandable up to 128GB and 256GB respectively. While Sim 1 supports 4G band, Sim 2 supports 2G band. The phone supports VoLTE, WiFi v4.0. There is no OTG support and NFC. The phone measures 153.7 x 76.4 x 8.6 mm and weighs 170 grams. Though it sounds heavy, but it feels lighter. Note 6 is available only in color Gold.
There is nothing to be excited about this phone’s get up as it is pretty simple. But the body and make is sturdy and does not feel cheap. This phone is easily operable with one hand and lacks the appeal of a modern smartphone. But the hardware is solid which can handle operations well.
The 5.5-inch Full-HD IPS (2.5D Glass) has resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels at 400 pixels per inch. The appearance is crisp but unfortunately not bright enough to read in darkness. In direct sunlight the screen is dark and hard to read any words. Viewing angles are okay but gets muddier. The TFT capacitive touchscreen has no lagging and you can navigate with a brisk. Video watching is average and for all the right reasons. The phone has an aspect ratio of 16:9 which is nice to enjoy watching videos. The colors on screen have punch and good saturation. But you ought to adjust the brightness to full capacity in order to get the maximum. You can also adjust color temperature as it suits you in different occasions of the day.
The USP of Coolpad Note 6 is its dual camera setup in the front. The rear has the 13MP camera. Oddly both the cameras have trouble focusing objects no matter if the condition is well-lit or not. This camera produces well exposed shots with decent color capture and saturation in broad daylight. But somehow objects in far lose shape and appear a bit muddled. While shooting images indoor or in low-light condition there is significant deterioration. There appears lot of grain and noise and increased struggle to focus subjects. The fill light feature in the front does not help much though. When there are multiple faces in the frame the fill light seems to be confused up with the choice of on whom to shine bright. The wide-angle comes handy when you are shooting group selfies but then again, the grain problem persists. There is not much gradient between foreground and background on closer inspection. There is hiccups with white balance too as often it misses its marks. The rear camera with its f/2.2 aperture works well in good lighting condition with a good autofocus. There is a slight shutter lag which can well be overlooked. Close-ups and landscape pictures are moderate during the day. The camera does not have any HDR mode so when you are shooting against the light you have to settle for poorly exposed pictures. The camera app has an interesting feature called the Erase Mode which eliminates any unwanted objects form pictures. This is particularly useful when you are trying to shoot in a crowded place and people walks into your pictures. When you take several shots in this mode it automatically eliminates others and keeps what is in focus. Video quality is okay and absence of image stabilization results in lot of jerks and fades. The slow-motion videos are not too impressive either. The camera faces continuous impediment in focusing while shooting videos which could be annoying.
Overall, the Note 6 disappoint when it comes to its camera and this could be one of the biggest let down for this phone.
The 4,070 mAH battery is another USP of Coolpad Note 6 and it serves its purpose. The battery will last you well through one and half day with single charge. There is no fast charging though and it takes a well over 2 hours to charge it fully from flat. The battery is a beast and with extensive gaming, entertainment and browsing it is formidable. It surely does not disappoint. It has a talk time capacity of 20 hours, and standby time of 120 hours. The audio quality is average and gets muddled when you crank it up.
The Coolpad Note 6 will not disappoint you if you are looking for smartphones with basic functionality. It will serve you well in operating basic applications like Gmail, Chrome, Maps, messages and You Tube. The phone also has moderate gaming experience with average sound quality. It can run low graphics games like Subway surfers, Temple Run 2 with ease. Graphics intense games like PUBG and Asphalt plays with hiccups and sluggishness sometimes. The phone does not have any heating issue. Overall, Note 6 does a good job with basic tasks and the hardware can handle multi-tasking though sometimes there is a lag.
Coolpad Note 6 comes with Android Nougat 7.1 out of the box and we do not know if it will be upgraded to Oreo. On top of this it is still running a dated security patch of December 2017. Coolpad has definitely done a pretty bad job of this phone in the face of fierce competition. The Nougat comes with a custom Journey UI on top. You can play around with themes but cannot get rid easily of the notification tabs. The UI lacks smoothness and clarity. There are apps like Smart Dock, Game Dock and Scroll Screenshot functions which supports gestures. The Smart Dock opens the recently used apps with gesture either rom left or right. Game Dock pops up while playing games and in using it you can turn off any notification, activate a blue light filter and change performance mode. But this is not compatible with all games. The Scroll Screenshot does work only with UC Browser and not Chrome. The phone comes loaded with a bunch of pre-installed apps like Hungama, Ola, Xender, UC Browser, Amazon Shopping, Prime Video, Facebook, Newsdog and UC News. The good thing is you can uninstall everything if you want and make room for what you like. There are other cool stuffs like taking screenshots, split screen mode and gesture enabled apps. The UI has both some negative and positive effects.
There are several things that are working in favor and against of Coolpad Note 6. It has a good hardware specification, though not the best in terms of its price and what is available in the market. The battery is powerful enough and perhaps the only best thing about this phone. The camera surely disappoints and fails to keep up. The UI is good but not the deciding factor in buying this phone. There is Honor phones which are priced a tad lesser and comes with dual cameras and certainly better results. The Android Nougat makes a negative case in this handset and does not leave much room for the reasons of why one should buy this phone in the first place.
