Design And Display

The phone has a splendid design which makes it a premium looking device. It is a complete metallic device with a glass finish fingerprint scanner.

coolpad-cool-1-backsideThe back of the phone houses a dual 13 MP camera with dual tone flash. Then there is Coolpad and LeEco branding at the bottom. In spite of all the metal, the phone is extremely light and weighs less. This means you can hold it in your hands for a long time and keep on using the Cool 1.

coolpad-cool-1-displayThe display of this phone is a 5.5 inch Full HD one and the sunlight visibility is good. The colours on screen are crisp and things appear natural. Not to forget, there is Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection which makes the display all the more sturdy.

Performance

The Cool 1 phone has 4 GB of RAM and Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset at its heart. While these specs are good on paper, how does the phone perform in real life?

As you can see in the image above, Antutu Benchmark has given the phone a score of 79k.

For regular users: Be it opening multiple tabs in the browser, or running multiple applications at the same time, Cool 1 performs well in all the department of day to day to use and does not heats up. The user interface is fast and zippy and is also easy to use at the same time.

Slide down the notification bar and you will see a management option. Touch on it and it will show you the apps which can put up notifications. This is a really essential feature because several times apps keep on pushing notifications which we do not want and they keep up cluttering or popping up while doing some work.

Camera

We have a dual 13 MP camera at the rear of the Coolpad Cool 1 smartphone and a 8 MP front facing camera. Before I speak any further, I advice you to click on the images below and check them for yourself in the full screen mode on your device.

The phone performs well in different lighting conditions and offers the users various settings to play with including a professional mode. Also, there is a Bokeh mode through which you can click the object in focus and rest of the image blurred photographs.

Battery Life

Coolpad has done a good job by putting in a 4000 mAh battery under the hood of this phone. In spite of such a huge battery, the Cool 1 smartphone is extremely light in weight. The phone got a fast charge feature and with a full charge, it runs for a day and a half on moderate usage. This is a solid battery backup.

Verdict

The Coolpad Cool 1 has every ingredient of a successful smartphone story. It has a sturdy metallic build, weighs less and feels premium. The display is awesome and the UI is zippy. The 13 MP camera performs well under different lighting conditions. If you are looking for a phone that performs well in all the areas and still does not burn a hole in your pocket, this is the phone you are looking at.
