Coolpad Cool 1 is priced at Rs 13,999 and features a dual-rear 13MP + 13MP setup and a 4000 mAh battery
LeEco Coolpad Cool 1 (model c103) has been launched in India almost four months after the launch of the device in China back in August. Cool 1 is a reasonably priced device that still manages to pack a dual camera setup on the back. The phone packs a beautiful 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display (1920 X 1080 pixels resolution), which has a vibrant feel thanks to its 403 ppi pixel density.
Cool 1 is currently running on EUI 5.6 based Marshmallow 6.0.1. The phone packs 4GB of RAM and features 32GB of on board storage with close to 23GB of it freely available to users. The large non-removable 4000 mAh battery features Quick Charge 2.0 and will charge the device to 50 per cent in close to 30 minutes as claimed by the company.
The Cool 1 is powered by an Octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor coupled with an Adreno 510 GPU. It features 4GB of RAM that makes the phone snappy enough to handle multi-tasking with fair ease, but some apps take a little more time to open than they should considering this is a brand new phone.
After about 10-15 minutes of use, I felt the phone became significantly warm to touch – both at the rear (around the camera sensors) and near the top part of the display. The battery backup on the phone has been decent event with the LTE active on the device, but we’ll have more on this once we’re done with the full review. The fingerprint sensor is reasonably fast to unlock, but might take one or two tries to unlock sometimes.
The colour reproduction is rich, but the blacks could be a little darker. The camera app will let you take a lot of quick shots without shutter lag. The primary camera is also capable of taking good pictures up close to the subject/object.
LeEco Coolpad Cool 1 appears to be a pretty decent device for its price range. I believe that the battery backup of the device and the primary dual cameras will be the biggest selling points of the phone. We will be testing the device thoroughly over the next few weeks and will have a full review of the device.
