Being a blogger, I am always clicking pictures, selfies, updating my social media and taking calls, emails. Which means I am always with my phone. I’m also constantly scouting for new locations for my photo shoots. Surprisingly, most places in Bangalore do not allow photo shoots. You can click the same frame with your phone and not the camera, weird right..?? And when you have to cancel the shoot only because of this, it’s another nightmare…! This was the main reason that I wanted to get a new phone with which I can click some crisp pictures. So, when I got this Coolpad Cool1 phone, I knew this was the one I was looking for. Coolpad Cool1 comes in two colors, silver and gold. These days I am obsessed with silver hues so I got the silver one. The phone is sleek, lightweight, has 32 GB memory, fingerprint scanner and some really amazing features !
The main thing I loved in this phone is the Camera. The Coolpad Cool1 has a dual 13MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture each, phase detection auto-focus (PDAF) and a dual-LED flash. The front camera is 8MP with an f/2.2 aperture. I have clicked some amazing pictures using this phone, which deserves another post. Stay tuned for that! And you will be shocked to see that the pictures clicked with this phone, are blog post worthy.
When you have 2 sim cards and you have been carrying 2 phones all these months, you know life isn’t easy. You forget to carry one phone sometimes or you cute little bag cannot fit both the phones together. It is then, at that moment, you think of a solution, which is nothing but get a phone with Dual Sim Technology. And once you get it you realize, I wish I had got it sooner.
This particular phone has a Reverse Charging Feature. Which means it has a dual direction USB type-c which charges your phone at lightning speeds & also makes your phone a power-bank when you need one. Isn’t that amazing ?
Raise your hands if you love clicking selfies, if you are reading this sitting in your office then nod your head instead. Coolpad Cool1 has 8mp front camera which, comes with an auto Beauty Mode, which adapts to your facial expression to capture the perfect selfie. Beauty mode smooth-ens the skin, blurs the lines, pores, marks and makes your face look more radiant in the pictures. Which means you will look like you have got your perfect dose of beauty sleep every time, even if you didn’t..!!
The phone is small enough to fit in all my handbags and big enough to watch a movie in. The 5.5 inch screen size is perfect for even typing mails. And if you are a clumsy one, like me, then you will be happy to know that it has gorilla glass protection.
I left home in the morning for a shoot and when I was back after a day full of running errands, meetings, constant Instagram stories, phone calls, watching YouTube videos, the battery was still way more than half. If I have to describe the battery life of this Coolpad Cool1 in four words, lasts more than forever. Because it has 4000 mah battery which offers a stunning stand-by time of 450 hours, 120 hours of music or 40 hours of movie playback. Now binge watching YouTube videos will not kill the phone.
Thank you Coolpad Cool1 for sending the phone. I really liked the phone and loved using every bit of it. It even went perfectly with my trench coat and fishnet stockings combo.
Also, since Honor 6x is very similar to Cool1, I am going to do a mini-comparison between Coolpad Cool1 & Honor 6x for you guys.
- Though they are similar, when it comes to their software, Cool1 has an advanced processor.
- Both of them come with dual camera technology. However, Cool1 gives you clearer distant shots as well as clearer macro pictures.
- The battery life is better in Cool1. Another point for that..!!
- Cool1 has C-type reverse charging technology while Honor 6x still continues to be with micro USB cable.
- The only part where Cool1 gives a point to Honor 6x is, it has 4+32GB non expandable memory. And Honor 6x comes with 4+64GB and expandable memory.
- Price for Cool1 is INR 13,999/- while Honor 6X retails for INR 15,999/-.
That’s it guys. Do let me know what you think about this phone, the comparison or even my outfit in the comment section below.
