Today, we take a look at the brand new Coolpad Mega 2.5D, that was released in India on the 10th August. The flash sale will start on 24th of this month, exclusively on Amazon India but the registrations have already started. We did the Unboxing on the new device. Lets see what’s inside the box and take a First Look at the Coolpad Mega 2.5D and it’s user interface.
The simple box reads ‘Coolpad Mega 2.5D‘. It’s called that because it has a 2.5D curved glass. The box doesn’t carry many details on the outside. Once you take out the outer box, you find a quick look at specs on the bottom end. The printed MRP of the device is INR 7,999 but the smartphone was launched at INR 6,999. We got a Gold version in our box but the smartphone also comes in White and Black colour variants.
Inside The Box
Once the opened, the box presents the new smartphone right on top. Farther in, you will find the SIM tray opener tool along with some of the manuals such as ‘Quick Start Guide’, Warranty Card, etc. Additionally, you will find pretty entry-level earphones [In-Ear type] with Call control but no Volume control. Also present is an Micro-USB 2.0 cable and a wall adapter [1.5 amp output].
The Coolpad Mega 2.5D is beautiful looking smartphone, probably the most beautiful smartphone at this price range. On top, there is a 5.5-inch screen, 2.5D glass but no protection. Form the front, the smartphone resembles the Coolpad Max a little, which is a good thing. The top carries an 8-megapixel front camera, which a selfie-focused camera with pretty high resolution. However, there is no flash.
The back also looks exquisite with the premium looking 8-megapixel camera being its USP. It also features a LED flash and a mic. The Power button and a dual hybrid SIM card slot are placed on the right edge. The bottom end sports the Micro-USB 2.0 port and a mic. The Volume controls can be found on the left edge.
The backside is plastic-made, however the ring surrounding it is metallic. The Gold version looks beautiful in this combination, very subtle. Overall, the device looks very nice and also feels nice in your hand, thanks to only 140 grams weight and just under 8mm of thickness.
The 5.5-inch HD display shows a little pixelation but it also lengthens the battery life to a large extent. The wing angle is decent. The Coolpad Mega 2.5D comes with Marshmallow out of the box, which is one of the best things about this device right here. The smartphone carries the Cool UI on top of Android 6.0, which is very smooth, fluid and does not hang at any time. It comes pre-loaded with usual Google apps, along with some in-house tools such as photos, camera, etc. The smartphone also comes wit features such as recorder, back-up, transfer tools. There aren’t many third party apps though, which is great. Overall, the UI feels very snappy.
Memory & Storage
The new smartphone offers about 10.10GB out of available 16GB internal storage. Out of 3GB available RAM, the Coolpad Mega 2.5D was seen using 1.3GB.
The rear camera does not take much long to acquire focus but still it’s not very fast either. The 8MP front camera is good and relatively lag-free. It captures fine details and has an HDR feature too, which is a good thing. The smartphone allows you to record a maximum of 720p videos.
Based on a quick look of the brand new Coolpad Mega 2.5D, the smartphone feels pretty good. We will be coming up with a full review pretty soon.
