After a period of hibernation, CoolPad caught up with the dual camera trend and launched a mid-ranger dubbed as Cool Play 6. Another selling point of this smartphone is its 6GB RAM. As of now, CoolPad Cool Play 6 is the cheapest 6GB RAM smartphone in the market retailing at Rs. 14,999 exclusively on Amazon. The company has also promised to offer Android 8.0 update by December 2017. So is this mid-ranger worth investing? Let’s find it out.

                   Display, Design, and hardware
The Cool Play 6 sports a 5.5-inch (1920×1080 pixels) Full HD IPS display translating to 403 ppi. The display is bright enough but looks washed out when setting brightness slider to maximum. The sunlight legibility also takes a hit with average visibility when it comes to outside environment.

The viewing angles are decent though. When it comes to design, the Cool Play 6 looks exactly like Cool 1 smartphone without much change in it. It has the same flat panel, black bezels on the sides with the chromed out rim at the edges. The front of the phone sports capacitive buttons below it that lights up when touched. Just above the screen, we have 8MP front camera with f/2.2 aperture, an earpiece and the usual set of proximity and ambient light sensors. It also has magnetic sensor (magnetometer) and gyroscope so you can use the phone with VR headsets.

Moving to the right we have the usual volume rocker keys, power button and on the left, we have the access to Dual SIM (nano + nano) slot. Up top, we just have a 3.5mm audio jack and at the bottom, it gets real busy with USB Type-C port and a speaker grill on the right side and microphone on the left.

Flipping it back, you can see the metal back with plastic end caps at the top and bottom. On the top, we have a dual camera module with dual LED flash and a circular fingerprint scanner just below it. The device measures 152.4×75.2×8.45mm and weighs around 175g, which heavy due to huge 4000mAh battery.

                                        Software
The CoolPad Cool Play 6 is shipped with Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Journey UI on top. Moreover, the company has also promised an upgrade to Android 8.0 as well. The lock screen showcases all the notifications if enabled, and on the right-hand corner is the camera shortcut. Swiping up gives you the access to the home screen.

As it lacks the app drawer, all the apps are placed on the home screen itself. The notification panel can be accessed by swiping down the screen from the top. However, deleting the notifications might frustrate you at times. If you want to delete the notification, you need to swipe it right and have to select Delete

Under the display option, you get four modes — normal, vivid, natural and eye care mode. You can also turn on the toggle for adaptive brightness if you need.

                                      Camera

The Coolpad Cool Play 6 sports a 13MP dual rear camera cameras with dual-tone LED flash, f/2.0 aperture, and PDAF. On the front, the device is taken care of 8MP camera with f/2.2 aperture.

Talking about the picture quality, the rear camera offers pretty decent images under daylight condition. The Bokeh shots are decent if not amazing, whereas the software struggles to locate definite edges as well. The front camera also is pretty decent for a selfies and video calling.

                                     Performance


Coolpad-Cool-Play-6_fonearena-20-1024x682.jpg
The Coolpad Cool Play 6 is powered by an Octa Core Snapdragon 653 (Quad 1.95GHz ARM Cortex A72 + Quad 1.44GHz A53 CPUs) Mobile Platform with Adreno 510 as GPU. In case of multitasking, this smartphone comes with 6GB of RAM. Talking about the performance, the Cool Play 6 gives us a smooth, lag-free experience and literally performs all the task we throw at it. During gameplay also, we didn’t observe any frame drop or slowdowns. But playing intense games for a long time warms the phone a bit. Overall, it’s a thumb up for the performance factor. Check out some synthetic benchmark scores below.

I have purchased coolplay6 and got it today... The performance is very good. However i would loved more if tjey could better than redmi note 4 features. Like capturing photos from fingerprint.  Seperate gallary for photos to edit,delete. I cant delete photos directly. Notification panel and popup cannot be removed by just flipping to one side. It has to either delete or blocked. Camare quality is awesome...speed is super awesome...not regretting very good phone in few hours of performance. ..

Fees cons for Coolpad 6. It is said to be volte enabled. Yes, it is but not always. The HAD flag disappears intermittently. No manoevour helps to get it back, but fortunately it comes back of it own. The App drawyer is missing and no set up for applications. It will be placed haphazardly over your home screen if you don't take the help of a 3rd party application. The microphone volume is just audible even at its maximum. These are few cons observed by me with 24hours of buying it. Thanks for reading.
