The Coolpad Note 3 Lite is the basic version of the Coolpad Note 3 which was launched in India in October last year at rs. 8,999. The Coolpad Note 3 Lite is a budget smartphone, but still packs a number of features and some specifications that customer wants for handsets. Although on paper it is not that much powerful, it does leave us with some overall positive first impression. It's also expensive smartphone in India with a fingerprint sensor, the 4G enabled Note 3 Lite has a 5-inch IPS screen, 3GB RAM, 16GB storage (Expandable up to 64GB), 13-Megapixel rear and 5-Megapixel front cameras and 2500MAH non-removable battery that is rated to deliver up to 10 Hours of talk-time, and up to 200 Hours of standby time.
The phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with company's Cool UI 6.0 Skin running on top. The design of the Coolpad Note 3 Lite is not ground-braking and we have already seen similar tings form several other budget smartphones. It has a white polycarbonate body with a golden rim running around the edges. The device's power and volume buttons are easy to reach with one hand typing is also easy on the Coolpad Note 3 Lite's stock Google keyboard. Although the white rear shell is removable you can not remove the battery. The grip is good not only because of this phone's compact size, but also due to the texture of the sell. The smartphone has two micro-sim slots and supports dual-standby and 4G LTE on both. A single speaker is placed towards the bottom of the rear and the fingerprint sensor is just below the camera.
Taking about selfies, the front facing 5-Megapixel camera delivered decent results. While we found the front camera struggled some what in low light. It worked without any issues in bright outdoor environments. The Coolpad Note 3 Lite also has a split screen feature, which until now we have usually only seen in mid-rang and high end smartphones. It has 16GB of in built storage, out of which users would only get around 10.6GB for their APPS and Media. the smartphone also supports Micro-SD cards up to 64GB. Bluetooth 4.0, WI-FI and Micro USB (With OTG) Connectivity are also featured. It also supports gravity sensor, proximity sensor, light sensor and a magnetic sensor.
Coolpad India CEO syed Tajuddin told to PTI that, "We have partnered Videocon to assemble our handsets in India. This will help us bring our products faster to our consumers. the plant in Aurangabad has a monthly capacity of 3 Lakh units. It Take at least 1-2 years for full-fledged manufacturing will be done in India."
