The back cover is removable through a small groove on the right edge. Thankfully removing the back cover was far easier than that on Note 3. Both the SIM cards and microSD card can be inserted after removing the back cover. There are markings around the slots to show the numbering of SIM cards and the direction in which to insert the microSD card and the SIM cards. Again, Note 3 Lite has addressed this common issue with phones very well.
This does not seem like a phone priced at Rs. 6999. Coolpad has invested a decent amount of effort in designing the phone which clearly shows in the phone's appearance. To be able to get most of the design elements correct is a very difficult task and Coolpad has again left us impressed with the design and build quality.
The first image above was taken in a very difficult lighting condition. Though there is no noise and grain in the picture, yet the camera has lost some detail due to the partition in the center with left area not throwing any light on the scene while there are glasses on the right side. In the second image, the color of the car has come out very similar to what can be seen with a naked eye. However, in the last image, the entire scene seems slightly washed out. What we could decipher from these images and a few more that we took is that the camera does not over process the images during post processing which is a very good thing. It also produces colors close to what you see with a naked eye, which means to say that the images retain photo realism. However, the camera does not pick up detail as sharply as higher end smartphones. But we would still call it a good camera for the natural colors the images seem to reproduce. The images taken from the front camera again lack detail but do produce natural colors.
The 3GB RAM on Coolpad Note 3 Lite serves the smartphone pretty well. The device screams through most of the daily tasks without any hiccups. The ability to perform fast has now reached a kind of saturation with even budget phones hitting the top level mark. Everything is buttery smooth here too. Apps open in a jiffy and you can multitask as much you want. We downloaded and installed Temple Run 2 and the device ran through without any frame rate drops either. The phone did not overheat while playing games or charging. The speakers are loud and clear at medium to high volume setting which makes it fun to watch Youtube videos and play games. Call quality is loud and crisp as well.
