Design and Display
In terms of look, the Coolpad Note 3 Lite parades a design that sets it apart from the rectangular slabs commonly seen in the budget space. It sports a polycarbonate chassis and comes in at a thickness of 8.9 millimetres. The texture of the rear panel makes for sure grip, helped by its trimness.
The phone packs a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. A pixel density of about 293 ppi should make for decent clarity, but the quality of supposed wide-angle viewing does not look highly promising.
Camera and Storage
On the camera front, the Note 3 Lite packs an impressive pair – similar to what you will find on midrange smartphones. It has a 13-megapixel shooter with an f/2.0 aperture lens and LED flash on the rear for great shots, even in low-light conditions.
The camera also comes with a Pro mode that gives greater control over the aperture. For selfies, the 5-megapixel front-facing snapper should deliver some high quality copies, especially for pictures taken outdoors.
Hardware and Software
The Coolpad Note 3 Lite is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor, paired with a Mali T-720 graphics solution and running at a maximum speed of 1.3 GHz.
With support provided by very impressive DDR3 RAM of 3GB capacity, the CPU should enable you use several apps at the same time with minimal glitches.
Onboard storage is 16 GB, extendable by another 32 GB using a microSD card. The device runs on its Chinese maker’s Cool UI 6.0 software, based on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS.
The bigger Coolpad Note 3 was contending for the title of the cheapest smartphone with a fingerprint sensor; its smaller brother has now outdone it in this aspect.
The Coolpad Note 3 Lite features a fingerprint sensor below its main camera on the rear, offering extra security and a faster way to take images.
A non-removable 2,500mAh battery supplies power and is rated as capable of supporting talk time of up to 10 hours. The Coolpad Note 3 Lite features dual SIM slots with LTE support.
