Have you wished for a small little device which is your bundle of joy which encapsulates anything and everything you need. If yes, there is someone who has heard you! NO NO, it’s not only God but a cool brand called Coolpad which has made it possible! Team ChicLifebyte recently got to know about the cool device called Coolpad Note 5 Lite which is themed around Small Packs It All. Yes, its power packed and has all the features which a big phone would have. Remember the big phones which were a rage at a certain point of time but we ditched those bulky creatures for sleeker smarter versions. However now is the time to go small. When big bags are turning into clutches, where do we have the space to store the big gadgets or the power banks and the USB cord! You would not need all of this if you get your hands on the new device!


The first look on the phone got me attracted to the 8 Megapixel Front Facing camera with LED Flash. Afterall, gone are the days when the primary purpose of the phone was attending calls. Now, it’s about selfies! What more, a 3GB RAM ensures that memory does not get full while clicking the unlimited selfies from every angle possible. Coolpad is one brand which surprises us with every launch coz they bring out the best of technology at amazing prices! Moving on to our obsession with pictures oops selfies, we talk about the sleek metal body with a fingerprint scanner at the rear. Now you can stylishly unlock your phone through the rear with a finger rather than struggling with your thumb!




The device is not only powered with 3GB RAM but even 16GB of flash storage along with expandable memory using a micro SD card. It bears a 13-megapixel auto focus rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera as mentioned earlier, both equipped with LED flash light allowing it to capture good selfies in low light condition. The Note 5 Lite also uses an aluminium magnesium alloy making it durable and sturdy yet light weight at 148g. It is available with 5- inch HD IPS display (1280X970), with a dimension of 145.3*72.3*8.7mm, which is perfect for one hand use. The tastefully traced thin metal rims around the back, gives this handset a premium look. It comes with scratch resistant, 2.5D curved glass on top of its display.


Coming to the specifications, it is powered by 64 bit 1.0 GHz quad core MediaTek MT6735CP processor, assisted by Mali – T720 GPU and 3GB of RAM. It runs on Android 6.0 and is powered by a 2500mAh non-removable battery, with a stand by time for upto 200H. The connectivity options include 4G LTE, 3G / HSPA+, EDGE / GPRS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Micro USB port and 3.5mm audio jack.



Team ChicLifeByte also caught up with Syed Tajuddin, CEO, Coolpad India who said “India still needs to explore the smart phone market”. Wondering what’s running in his mind but I am super impressed with the Note 5 Lite which is the latest addition to the Note series and the successor of the widely popular Note 5.  This is the 9th launch since October 2015 and the brand has actually reversed its launch process as well seeing the response in India. Some of the devices were actually first launched in India rather than China. India is loving the brand and so are we! Syed also added “Coolpad Note 5 received overwhelming response from customers and emerged as a disruptive product in the market.  With the launch of Note 5 Lite, we are again reinforcing our commitment to make technology available to everyone at a great price and won’t comprise on best in class features. Time and again, we unveil products that set benchmark in the smartphone category in the industry.”


Hold your breath because now I am gonna tell you about the price of the new phone along with availability! The phone is exclusively available from today onwards on Amazon.in at a price of just Rs. 8,199/-. Yes, we were as surprised as you are! From the description above, one would have easily thought it is above Rs. 20,000/-. It is available in variants of gold and grey via an open sale. Click here to grab your hands on the device ASAP.
