Coolpad Max comes with a dual phone system. The unique concept lets you have two phones - two entirely different phones - in one unit. Here we go with the spec sheet -
Design and Build
The build and the looks of the phone resemble the iPhone. You can opt for the phone in Royal Gold, Rose Gold and Neutral Grey color options. However, the neutral grey variant has not been made available in India as yet. The front has bevelled edges. The phone comes with a hybrid slot for microSD card - which means you can either use a microSD card or a second SIM. The choice should be yours.
Rear side is of matte finish. The finger print scanner sits in a recess just below the camera. The phone offers you a good grip. You may feel it is a bit heavy at 170 grams. Physical dimensions read 152.00 x 75.70 x 6.90 mm. Coolpad Max really looks quite premium. Even the presentation of the phone with the contents inside makes it a great one at that.
Coolpad Max comes with a 5.5 inch with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. It has the Gorilla Glass 4 protection. The pixel density is impressive at 401 ppi. There are no physical navigation buttons. Onscreen navigation buttons are quite handy.
Hardware and Performance
The Coolpad Max is powered by an Octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor at 1.5 GHz. The phone has a 4GB of RAM which should be great by today's standards. You get 64 GB of internal storage. If you want expandable memory, you will need to sacrifice the dual SIM functionality.
The phone has been reported to be quite fast. It has been observed to heat up a little when used for a prolonged time. The finger print scanner works quite accurately but falters sometimes.
On the rear, you have a 13 MP camera. It comes with dual tone flash and auto focus. The front camera is of 5 MP resolution. Both the cameras are capable of HD video recording at 1080p.
Cameras work just great. Locking into focus seems to be a little issue. Also, the videos come quite clear.
Coolpad Max runs on Cool UI. The amount of customisation is a little heavy. A few text labels are confusing more so because of the issues with translation from Chinese. There are a few pre-installed apps like Cool Manager and Cool Service. The split screen feature is run on any app unlike only on some specific apps on competitor devices.
The most interesting feature in the Private Space wherein you can get two phones in one. You can have a separate camera and other apps. Thus, you can have two installations of Whatsapp, Facebook or another app. You can even have two separate Google accounts.
Connectivity and other features
The phone supports LTE on both the SIM cards - that is if you have chosen to use it as a dual SIM device. The other connectivity features include WiFi, BlueTooth (version 4.0), GPS and USB. Another much in demand feature USB OTG is available on Max. The device lacks NFC and InfraRed.
The battery capacity reads 2800 mAh. It does support QuickCharge 3.0. Just under five minutes of charging will let you get three hours of talk time. Under the actual usage, the battery has been stated to give you around 8.5 hours of usage in a video loop test.
Reports suggest that the phone, though priced in the 25K segment, does not fit properly in the price band for the obvious reasons of performance issues experienced by some users. Coolpad Note 3 seems to be a better option than going for this expensive device. Only point that raises hopes is the dual phone functionality which is a new concept in the smartphone arena.
