The market is flooded with smartphones these days with a number of Chinese vendors launching their propositions in India with the simple premise that our country is a burgeoning market. Many brands are making their foray into the country's mobile landscape wishing to make a mark for themselves. However, even though its an expanding and an expansive market, the competition is fierce too, specially in the budget or affordable range. Bigger players like Samsung and the likes have already created a niche for themselves and this makes it all the more difficult for newcomers to join the party. Just a few days back, Coolpad, a Chinese vendor launched their first two offerings in India called Dazen X7 and Dazen 1. Today, we will be reviewing the Dazen 1 which will be available in a flash sale on Snapdeal for a price of Rs. 6,999 (which has now been decreased to Rs. 5,999) beginning June 9. The registrations for this device began on May 28.

Before doing the review, let us take a look at the specifications of the device.
Design and Build Quality
Looking at the pictures above, its quite evident that Coolpad has invested a lot of engineering into the camera sensor and the accompanying software. Having clicked the pictures myself, I can very well say that the color reproduction is almost identical to what I was seeing through my naked eye. Though there is slight grain in two of the pictures above, we have seen even more noise in exact same lighting conditions on many higher end smartphones as well so there is nothing to worry about. The basic colors, yellow, green and red have been reproduced similar to what the human eye likes. The colors are neither washed out nor oversaturated and they do not impose a sketch pen effect. Pictures clicked with the front camera were pretty fine too. This device is not being promoted as a selfie camera still you can click normal selfies from the phone. There are no wide angle views or other such gimmicky front camera features on offer.
