The definition of smartphones has changed in quite a way. Long gone are the days for the phones with a GB or less RAM, 4GB storages & 5MP cameras. Today, smartphones are able even to shy a mid-end computer and premier end camera at their owns. Following the path of bringing more awesomeness to mobile industry, Coolpad – with the collaboration of LeEco, has launched Coolpad Cool 1, an amazing high end smartphone with brilliant specs and stunning camera at a surprising low price.

Smartphones are getting smarter everyday. Coolpad Cool 1 is truly what I wanted LG V20 to be. Specs and beauty are joined together to give an excellent device experience.Since LeEco was involved with this smartphone, appearance had to be better. Coolpad has ditched their own CoolUI in favor of eUI, the trademark interface of LeEco. Cool 1 looks stunning in both interface and buildwise. The interface mimics that of iOS to the highest exaggeration. Colors & fonts are wisely chosen and are imposed to be easy on both your eyes and fingers. Talking about finger, this smartphone also has fingerprint sensor that allows your device to be protected with your humane identity. It is built with sturdy metallic material but yet manages to be little less bulky as screen to body ratio is as high as 77%.

eUI is quite beautiful and playful, but it gets daring when it comes to the notification panel. Rather than insisting upon Android’s stock notification model Cool1’s eUI considers iOS style control center. Good for those moving in from iOS but at first a bit of confusing for regular Android users. The so called, ‘Control Center‘ is very flexible and can be customized by users’ need. It can be accessed by tapping on the bottom-left ‘Options’ button.


Cool1 cameras are an exceptional beauty and are quite smart. Each of the dual cameras is designed for independent needs: one camera is used for color photos while the other is used to take black-and-white photos. The quality of the images produced were pretty good. Specially the front camera is a magic when it comes to selfie capturing. It produced some clean & bright selfie photos.


Coolpad Cool 1 is one of cheapest smartphones with 4GB RAM in India. The high end processor ensures lag-free experience of powerful games like Asphalt, Game Of Thrones etc. To juice up this much power, there comes a battery of big 4000mAh capacity which is enough to power the device for days. So no matter what you are up to – gaming or photography Cool 1 has got you covered – for a longer time. Cool 1 comes with a Type-C charger to sport a faster device charging experience.

To sum up, Coolpad Cool 1 can be considered as a powerful camera smartphone that is visually stunning, high performing and durable. To surprise the most, Silver colored model smartly is priced just at ₹13,999 and can be bought from website.
