    About the Phone

    Pros: 

    – Comfortable to hold 

    – Lightweight

     

    Cons:

    – Slow processor 

    – Low battery life 

    – Below average camera quality

     

    All in all, Coolpad Mega 5A proves to be what you would come to expect from a budget phone. Its performance is middling and fails to deliver a memorable experience to the user. If you are on a tight budget, there are many other phones in the market in the same price segment that may offer more value for money.

    Coolpad phones are known for their mix of budget and modern features like dual cameras and face unlock feature. However, these features have become increasingly common. The Mega 5A suffers from the same problem.

    The back cover of this phone is made up of plastic which might feel cheap and flimsy but however, its metal frame and rounded edges make it feel premium and comfortable to use. One of its biggest plus points is its lightweight feel because of which we don’t find it cumbersome to use the phone. The 3.5mm headphone jack and the Micro-USB port are on the top, and only the primary microphone is at the bottom. The dual cameras are placed one above the other and below them is the fingerprint sensor. Further down is a loudspeaker grille. The Mega 5A is powered with a dual-SIM device and has two Nano-SIM slots. It also has a dedicated slot for insertion of a MicroSD card. 

    Coolpad Mega 5A sports a 5.45-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The display has decent viewing angles and an HD resolution but visibility outdoors is limited. 

    Powering the Mega 5A is a Spreadtrum SC9850K quad-core processor. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. It comes with some preinstalled apps like Facebook, Messenger etc.  The phone also has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which is expandable by up to 128GB via the dedicated microSD card slot. However, performance-wise, the Mega 5A feels sluggish. The phone slows down and doesn’t do well in terms of multitasking. Unlocking the phone also feels like a task. 

    Coolpad has an 8-megapixel primary sensor along with a 0.3-megapixel depth sensor. In the front, it has a 5-megapixel sensor. There are some built-in modes to chose from such as HDR, Bokeh, Beautify, Face Detection etc. The photos come out to be simply satisfactory, but the phone suffers in adding definition and depth to the photographs. Lowlight photography is best avoided. The output of the selfie camera is decent. Videos record at 1080p for both the cameras but without any stabilisation.

    Mega 5A has a small 2500mAh battery life that doesn’t last for more than 10 hours on medium to heavy usage. It’s inadequate for someone with daily heavy usage and hence far behind its contemporaries today.  

    The Mega 5A fails to make a lasting impression. Everything it does, it’s competitors do better. Its battery life is low, it’s camera quality is average, it feels sluggish and is unable to perform while multitasking. It only has its lightweight and metal frame going for itself as anything impressive, however, these are things which are already commonplace. Overall, the drawbacks outnumber the little to no advantages of owning this product over any other. There are plenty of phones available at this price which perform much better and provide more value for money. Ultimately, its lack of innovation and old-fashioned technology weighs it down.
