We loved the device but it is not for camera lovers: Cool 5 review

In year 2019, Coolpad has launched quite a few phones in the sub-Rs 9000 segment in India and made a successful comeback. Infinix have launched cool 5 and making it one of the best selling phone after their comeback.  

Design and Colour

The brand has made its mark in the highly competitive phone market. The latest smartphone with drop notch display looks like any other budget smartphone from the front. 

Phone offers multi-card slot, which includes dedicated slots for SIM cards and a microSD card. Coolpad has added a USB type-C port at the bottom, to make it compete with xiaomi phones in same price segment but this device lags high end camera.But we can say it is decently priced in this segment.


It sports a 6.22-inch HD IPS display with 720x1600 pixels resolution and 20:9 aspect ratio. It is a waterdrop notch display. It offers 400nits brightness and around 90 percent screen-to-body ratio. 

color output is well defined, and sunlight legibility is good too - overall, this is one of the better displays you will see in this price segment with so many features. Phone is Sturdy and company includes a silicon cover in the package.


The primary camera gives reasonably good shots in daylight - sharpness and details are decent but it is a dual camera setup with not having superior quality lenses. one can easily find Triple camera pack in this price segment.


Excellent battery life with a 4000mAh battery - you should get a comfortable 2 days of use.With Its power manager on heavy usage we were able to get 2 days of battery we have tested heavy graphics games with music playback and continuous web surfing.

Cool 5 is a feature-rich and aggressively priced device that is available for sale at INR 7,999.

Overall Review

I haven't expected a INR 7,999 smartphone to deliver high gaming experience but it offered more than the expectations. Phone runs Android pie( 9.0) with cool pad UI on top of it. We expect better and software updates from coolpad in future if it wants to keep brand name intact.

Coolpad UI is clean, uncluttered as well as easily navigable. The UI provides the Cool 5 with various themes, ringtones and power management system. Phone doesn't heats up much and processes multiple tasks without hanging.

It is powered by a Octa-core 2.0 GHz Helio P22 Cortex-A53 processor which handles your daily tasks with ease. 

we rate this device 8/10 due to its value for money proposition and we cut 2 point for missing superior cameras. our final verdict is 8/10 for this amazing package.
