When we compare Coolpad Note 3 Lite or Coolpad Note 3 then I still prefer the earlier one though it is higher price than the latest one. It also just because of its performance for audio, video, voice and overall performances are far better than other gadgets.

Coolpad Note 3 Lite comes with smaller screen size than the Note 3 and the price is just two thousand differences between them. Note 3 is even far better when we compare with other brand same segment Smartphones.
