Design and Display

Coolpad Cool 5 sports a USB-C port at the bottom. The port helps in providing faster data transfer and ensures that the device remains a little more protected. The smartphone supports either two Nano-SIM cards or a SIM and a microSD card and it also features a fingerprint scanner at that back for authentication. Overall Build quality is nice, Dual-color at the back really looks awesome and premium. The interesting part is that the display produces colors and contrast as well that makes the videos abruptly dim or brighten. They feature plastic back and feels quite handy while in daily use.

They have all the necessary buttons and ports which are available in all smartphones such as volume rockers, power lock key, Audio Jack and list goes on. Nothing specifically added which need to be purely mentioned in this content.

While considering the price point we can justify the features which Coolpad Cool 5 offers.

Performance & Battery

Coolpad Cool 5 has Android 9 pie supported with Coolpad’s custom Cool UI version 4.0 layered on top of it and is powered by a Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 chipset. The phone is not a high-performance smartphone but you feel no lag in day to day tasks. I won’t recommend it for playing high graphics games like Pubg Mobile.

The Coolpad Cool 5 is backed up by a battery of 4000mAh. The battery is further supported by the “power manager” application which helps to manage elongated battery life.


Coolpad-Cool-5-Review-rear-cameraCoolpad Cool 5 comes with a dual rear camera setup that includes a 13MP primary rear camera with a 2MP depth sensor and a flash. The camera offers multiple modes- namely the beauty, FaceCute, Bokeh, Pro, and a Smart photo mode. All these modes take a few seconds after clicking to process and save the image which clearly indicates the shutter lag. Personally, shutter lag is no longer common in budget models. This can be a serious drawback for this budget-friendly smartphone. The Coolpad Cool 5 features a selfie camera of 16MP without any sort of flash. The selfie camera supports all the modes the same as on the rear camera except for bokeh. Instead of bokeh mode, the smartphone supports portrait mode.

Camera Samples


Coolpad Cool 5When it comes to design, software, and performance, The Cool 5 is a good budget-friendly smartphone. It did not lag when carrying out regular calling or messaging tasks. However, the camera quality is not that good but the fact that only a few smartphones in the Indian Market are available with a 4GB and 64GB RAM-ROM combination in such price that makes Coolpad Cool 5 special.
