Chinese smartphone company Coolpad, which is the part of LeEco, announced its new mobile Coolpad Shine. Coolpad is especially known for its innovations such as dual-standby headsets. Also, according to a report, the company is the third largest mobile manufacturer in China, behind Lenovo and Xiaomi. The Coolpad Shine was released in India in October, 2015. Let’s go into the details.
Fingerprint sensor, 13MP primary camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 615
2GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, 2500 mAh, Non-removable battery
The Coolpad Shine is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8939 615 Octa-core processor, which is quite impressive for this price. The Octa-core is divided as 4x1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 and 4x1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 architectures. With that processor speed and Adreno 405 Graphics Processing Unit, the Coolpad Shine is a go-go for heavy gaming.
The Coolpad Shine comes with a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary one. The main camera comes with an LED flash, autofocus and features Geo-tagging, Touch to focus, Face detection, HDR, and Panorama. The video recording quality can go up to 1080p @30fps.
The Coolpad Shine packs a non-removable Li-ion battery with the capacity of 2500 mAh battery, which is very disappointing. The Coolpad Note 3s (Rs 9999), which is lesser in cost when compared to Coolpad Shine, comes with a 3500 mAh battery.
Design and Display:
With the dimensions 153x77.2x8.6mm, the Coolpad Shine sports a 5.5-inch display. The screen resolution of the IPS LCD display is 720x1280p. The screen to body percentage of the phone is 70.6% and the pixel density of the capacitive multi-touch screen is 267 ppi. At the price of almost Rs 13000, a HD screen is not one wish for.
The Coolpad Shine comes with a 2GB RAM and 8GB internal memory, which can be expandable up to 32GB. The phone comes with a dedicated SIM slot, so there isn’t any hassle of sacrificing either of your memory card or a SIM.Miscellaneous:
The fingerprint sensor is rear-mounted. Additional features of Coolpad Shine include an Accelerometer, a Proximity Sensor, a Compass, and a Gyro Sensor. The Coolpad Shine price in India is Rs 12900.
This phone is a keeper when it comes to an efficient fingerprint scanner and a 13MP camera but those doesn’t just cut it. At this price range, there are several phones like Redmi Note 4 4GB RAM, which offer a far better set of features.
