About the Phone

With the 6 GB RAM and Snapdragon 653 to boast of, Cool Play 6 is a powerhouse in its own right in terms of performance. Games will tend to run pretty smoothly, not to mention any other loaded applications one could think of. While the likes of Oppo and Xiaomi will offer better cameras on their phones in the same price range, Cool Play 6 isn’t too shabby on the camera front although it isn’t exactly spectacular and will not thrill any photography enthusiasts.

While Xiaomi Note 4 might represent more value for money and Vivo V5 Plus and V7 might be equipped with better cameras, one shouldn’t take anything away from Coolpad when it comes to this offering as the phone is worth its price tag, for the most part, owing to its performance.

Pros:

– Sturdy design, metal unibody design works very well in terms of ergonomics for the phone, although it is pretty much the standard for most phones in the same price range. The fingerprint scanner is also pretty fast and fluid.

– The display has good viewing angles and brightness levels.

– Coolpad gearing the Android up with their own Journey OS makes for a pretty neat addition.

– 6 GB RAM is quite a spectacular offering at this price range, meaning that the phone is quite the powerhouse when it comes to performance.

Cons:

– The display is average when tested in outdoor conditions. There’s a lack of visibility.

– There is no fast charging support, meaning that even if it packs an impressive battery, it doesn’t exactly charge very fast.

Compatriot conglomerate Xiaomi already has a vice grip on the low-priced and mid-priced range of phones that dominate the market and cater to a specific demographic. Coolpad entered the Indian market in order to loosen this hold and get a cut of the pie by delivering models priced below Rs 10,000.

Speaking from a specifications point of view, one would be bound to feel that this phone should ace in all departments, especially considering the fact that it has a dual-camera feature which is probably the main reason why they priced it at Rs 14,999. However, even though it has definitely got its redeeming set of characteristics, the offering still somewhat falls way short of expectations in the end after one weighs the pros and cons. It doesn’t mean that the phone doesn’t hold its own amongst other mid-range offerings.

Resorting to a prosaic mindset in terms of design, the Coolpad Cool Play 6 resembles the design of Cool 1. Ergonomically speaking, the phone looks and feels quite sturdy in hand.

Armed with a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1920×1080, Coolpad decided to stick with an aspect ratio of 18:9. It works really well in most situations, whether you use it to watch movies or play video games for long hours. However, the display tends to get a bit wonky when exposed to daylight or any powerful outdoor lighting situations.

Already packed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 and Adreno 510 GPU, Coolpad opted to add its own UI in order to lend the performance an extra oomph. 6 GB RAM means that it breezes through most tasks and will be able to provide steady performance across different applications, ranging from prosaic ones to heavy video games. The device might be prone to heating issues though if one is using a rather heavy application too relentlessly.

While equipped with a dual-lens camera as a primary shooter, the camera feature on this phone isn’t exceptional by any means and one would be encouraged to not let their expectations get the best of them.

The device is equipped with a 4060 mAh battery unit which should easily run throughout the day even with heavy to moderate usage. However, it isn’t equipped with fast charging, so you might need to take out a good chunk of your time to charge the phone.

While the price range is definitely new territory for Coolpad Cool Play 6, the phone is a pretty good offering from them and overall, it ticks most boxes though they could’ve probably done better in the camera department. That said, compared to other similarly priced options in the market, it holds its own.
