Coolpad, the company that prides itself in being world's first in terms of bringing something new on the table, has added yet another smartphone to its lineup with the Coolpad Max. With the Coolpad Note 3, they made fingerprint sensor and rock solid specs a norm for sub 10k smartphones. They even released the Note 3 Lite that was priced lower than its sibling and was the first phone under 7k to sport 3GB RAM.With the Coolpad Max, the company aims to separate your professional and personal life without having to maintain two different phones.
The USP of Coolpad Max is the "Dual in One" feature. It allows you to set up two different accounts on your phone say one for your work and other for home. You can use two accounts on your favorite apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, BBM, and other social media applications. What's more is that it sports a unique dual space technology that secures all the personal and professional information and limits third-party apps from accessing unnecessary information. As far as the specs are concerned, the Max comes with a Snapdragon 617 processor clocked at 1.5Ghz paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage that can be further expanded via a microSD card slot. The device packs in a 5.5" 1080p 2.5D curved glass display with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The rear houses a 13MP primary camera with ISOCELL CMOS technology, Dual LED flash, PDAF and 6p lens while a 5MP camera is present on the front panel. The Max is powered by a 2800mAh battery with fast charging technology though for a device this size, it is definitely underpowered. It runs on Android 5.1 with Coolpad's custom Cool UI 8.0 layered on top. Coolpad has opted for a premium design for the Max with an all metal build with rounded corners and gold and rose gold color options. A fingerprint sensor is present just beneath the rear camera and just like the Note 3, it is crazy fast with precise recognition. It will be very interesting to see how the Max fares up against the competition especially with the newly launched Moto G4 Plus and the Xiaomi Mi 5. Stay tuned for the first impressions!
