 Design and Display

 The Coolpad Note 3 Lite looks quite similar to the Coolpad Note 3 in terms of design. The handset flaunts round edges and a golden coloured metal rim that give a stylish and premium look to it. The major difference is in the size. Even though the Coolpad Note 3 Lite is a 5-inch device, it fits perfectly in one hand. The front panel of the device houses three capacitive keys, which are not backlight, and a 5MP front-facing camera at the top with a set of sensors. The smartphone comes with a textured back panel giving a pleasant and comfortable feel to the user. The rear panel houses a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a fingerprint sensor

One needs to remove the back panel to insert the 2 sim and the microSD cards. There is also a 2,500 mAh battery that cannot be ejected. The power button is placed on the right side, while the volume rocker keys are placed on the left side of the Coolpad Note 3 Lite. The 3.5mm headset jack and micro-USB port are placed at the top and bottom edges, respectively.

Coolpad Note 3 Lite features a 5-inch display with 720x1280 pixels resolution. The display of the handset has better pixel density when compared to its sibling (the Coolpad Note 3). The display offers vibrant colour reproduction along with good level of brightness. The display is also responsive and gives good visibility under bright sunlight. You can also adjust the colour temperature of the screen, which benefits a lot while reading something in the night. The viewing angles are also nice making movies and playing games experience a real delight. The display is also protected from scratches with a coating of scratch resistant glass.

Performance and Camera

The Coolpad Note 3 Lite runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system topped with the Cool UI of the company. It consists of unified app launcher-homescreen navigation and a customised interface, which supports various themes. It also comes with customised system apps along with some third party apps.

There is no app drawer in the phone's UI and all the app icons are placed on the phone's homescreen. The phone comes preloaded with a number of apps including WeChat, WPS Office, Facebook, SwiftKey, among others. Some of these preloaded apps were specifically designed for Coolpad including FP Lock, CoolShow, Rock Wallpaper, and Cool store. The user interface is very smooth and works fluidly without any lags.

The Coolpad Note 3 Lite is powered by a 1.3GHz 64-bit Mediatek MT6753 quad-core processor, the phone is the only one in this price range to come with 3GB of RAM. It offers 16GB storage expandable up to 64GB via microSD card. Regarding connectivity, the dual-sim phone comes with support for 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. Both sim slots support 4G LTE, too.

As per its specifications the Coolpad Note 3 Lite performs very well and it lives up to its expectations. The handset handles all apps thrown at it pretty well and we were able to run ten applications simultaneously without any lag or hiccups. We did not face any heating issues while playing graphic intensive games such as Dead Trigger 2, Spiderman Unlimited, Asphalt 8 and others. The non-removable 2,500 mAh battery lasts a day under moderate usage. The call quality was also good and the device performed well even in low signal areas. Coolpad Note 3 Lite also delivers clear and crisp sound quality both over the headphones and loudspeaker. All-in-all the Coolpad Note 3 Lite scores well in the performance department.

Skipping to the cameras, Coolpad Note 3 Lite flaunts 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front camera for selfies. The camera can focus quickly on various objects and there is no shutter lag. The photographs taken during daylight came out well with good amount of detailing and colour reproduction. However, the pictures captured during low light looked average. The camera app is clean and easy to use and has various features, and modes for photography. There is also a Pro mode that lets you control the aperture, ISO level, brightness and colour settings.

The 5MP front camera produced some good quality selfies. You can also make use of the fingerprint sensor to click selfies, which makes it much easier to capture some of your great selfies and groupfies. The fingerprint sensor works like a shutter release button and you just need to tap on it once for clicking selfies.


The Cooplad Note 3 Lite comes with a price tag of Rs 6,999 and offers high-end specifications such as quad-core CPU, 3GB RAM, HD display, 13MP rear camera and a fingerprint sensor. It is a good option for the people looking for a complete package of high-end specs and budget price.We also considered some alternatives of the Coolpad Note 3 Lite, like the Xiaomi Redmi 2 Prime or the Intex Aqua Power Plus, which fall under the same price bracket, but lack some of the features available in Coolpad.
