Taking about Display Coolpad Note 5 Lite comes with 5-inch HD Display with 2.5D Glass on top of it whereas Note 5 was offering FHD Display. Display offers good colors and viewing angles both indoors and outdoor condition also 2.5D Glass on top gives good protection Display is much better than other Phones which are available in this price range.


The smartphone is powered by a 1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735CP 64-bit processor with Mali-T720 GPU which is not powerful in terms of Gaming we notice lag and also device heats up while playing high-end games.daily task like using Phone for Social networks, listening music, playing normal games we did not face any issue. At this price point, Xiaomi is offering Snapdragon 430 with Redmi 3s Prime there could have been a better processor on Note 5 Lite. It has a 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage out of which around 10GB available for the user which is further expandable with MicroSD card but Device does not have dedicated MicroSD card slot. Coolpad should have given 32GB of internal storage. On AnTuTu benchmark phone scores 30036 points On Geekbench 4 Phone scores 513 on a Single core and 1416  points. The overall performance of the Phone is Decent not that Great.
