DesignThe first and foremost point anyone would notice is the phone has quite a premium feel to it when compared to a limited number of phones in its portfolio. The device, with 2.5 D Arc Design for curvy edges, a thin caricature, along with polished metal lining with matte finish, gets full marks for details in its design crafting. Moreover this is the biggest light weight phone, with a screen size of 5.5' the phone weighs just 140g. The screen is IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1280 pixel resolution and multi-touch functionality.

Front camera is good for video calling and taking selfies , the best part being, it is also 8 MP with f/2.2 aperture. The configuration of camera is top notch and the quality of pictures is excellent even in low lights.
Talking about camera’s UI, Coolpad made a point to keep the device as user friendly as possible, where you can easily swipe modes from picture to video, beauty, night and pro. The camera can be switched to front with a single tap while accessing detailed settings of focus, exposure, shot, refocus, pick zoom etc. is also a matter of single tap.

All in all, the phone is a complete package of all we could want in our smartphone.
PerformanceCoolpad Mega 2.5D has never made us encounter a ‘Lag’ moment, even in extreme and memory intensive situations. We believe this exceptional performance is a result of 1 GHz Cortex-A53 and 3GB RAM.
The phone houses Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Coolpad’s custom Cool UI 8.0. As for storage space, the phone has an in built 16 GB storage along with an extendable 32 GB microSD card slot.
