Coolpad Note 3 Lite phone comes with smaller size and is good for those who want a phone with 5 inch display. It comes with design similar to Coolpad note 3. But battery is non-removable this time. Company has also changed the color of thin metallic frame to gold for better look. It has power button at right side and volume rocker at the left side. 3.5 mm audio output port at top and microUSB port at the below side.

Inside the back cover, it offers two sim card slots and a microSD card slots. Placing of speaker is at back. Curve arc design with lining texture at back is there for better grip and easy handling.

It runs on Cool UI 6.0 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. I personally like Cool UI because of its elegant look and lag free experience. You get thousands of wallpapers to choose from. Cool store is also there to add more components.

Fingerprint sensor

It comes with fingerprint sensor which is really fast and can be used for multi-purpose. In this price, it is the cheapest phone with fingerprint security. You can not only use fingerprint security to lock your phone but for also locking individual app. Fingerprint sensor can also be used to capture selfies. Company claims that fingerprint sensor can identify fingerprint in just 0.5 seconds. Seriously it was fast enough.


It comes with a 13 megapixels rear camera and a 5 megapixels front camera. Considering the price of the phone, its camera offers good photos. Camera app also offers few modes including a dedicated manual mode. You can also use fingerprint sensor to capture photos.

Connectivity and battery

This phone comes with 4G LTE connectivity. Other connectivity features are 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro USB and GPS.

It is packed with 2500 mAh battery which is strong enough for this hardware. I cannot say anything about the performance but it is expected to be good.
