Performance, software, battery:
The Coolpad Cool 3 Plus comes with a MediaTek Helio A22 processor paired with 2GB/3GB RAM and runs the Android 9 Pie.
The phone is good enough for doing daily work and gets the job done. However, the phone heat up after playing games on it for a period of 15 min or more.
This phone can run games like clash of clans , subway surfer etc with ease. There are no lags here. But, if you play big games like asphalt 9 or PUBG, the device lags pretty often and the lag also occurs when you’ve a fast and stable internet connection. The phone take around 3 or 4 hours to fully charge from 0% to 100%.
The device is not quite impressive in the camera department. The camera lacks focus even if we click the photo at close range even if there is optimum light. At night the sensors don’t work properly and struggle to identify objects and faces. If you try to zoom, the photos can come pixelated. In low light the camera lacks quality and the photos are quite dull.
At Rs 5,999 for 2GB/16GB and Rs 6,499 for 3GB/32GB, the Coolpad Cool 3 Plus is an mediocre device and there are some issues with slow charging and photography. However, we must understand that it is a budget smartphone and in this price range we do have problems with charging and photography.
