The Coolpad is a Chinese company that pretty much focuses on the smartphone development and delivery. It is a big company employs nearly 5000 people and counts for a big part of market share for shipments in China. Coming back to our gadget review, the Coolpad Dazen X7 is an amazing phone with superb smart features and expected in India in next two months with a little blown up price of 17999 INR.
Full HD Display Metallic Built and Impressive Design
Coolpad has gone with a much weird approach for the design of this smartphone. It features a premium all metallic edge imitating the look of Apple iPhone. Well, getting inspired from Apple devices is a normal trend for Chinese brands. The phone has got a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the back that gives it a pleasing feel in control, but also makes it slipper at the same time. The power button and volume rockers are not much tactile when it comes to feedback.
FHD Display: The Coolpad Dazen X7 comes with a 5.2 inch Super AMOLED display with a mouthwatering resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels. You get a much high pixel density of 424 ppi that makes everything razor sharp on the screen. The display of this phone constitutes a really high contrast ratio and its viewing angles are at the maximum.
Camera: This smartphone flaunts a 13 MP camera on the back, which is capable of recording 4K UHD videos at 30 frames per second. Its CMOS sensor is also equipped with Optical Image Stabilization. There is also dual-tone LED flash for taking bright natural shots even in low lighting conditions. On the front, the Coolpad Dazen X7 features an 8 MP camera which captures great details. The phone also provides the users some advanced controls like the capability of changing focus, ISO, shutter speed and white balance.
Performance: The Coolpad Dazen X7 boasts an octa-core 1.7 GHz processor coupled with 2 GB of RAM and a PowerVR G6200 GPU. This phone has got a 16 GB of on-board storage that can be expanded up to 32 GB using a micro SD card. It is a powerful phone with a not so optimized OS because of which the user experience is full of lags and stutters.
Quadrant benchmark test gives this phone a decent score of 17730. Geekbench single core and multicore return a score of 1014 and 3527 respectively. The phone leaves behind many famous smartphones in the budget segment by getting a good score of 60.9 fps in Nenamark 2.
Most of the games run flawlessly on this phone. However, some problem can be faced while playing games, which require a lot of RAM.
Connectivity: The Coolpad Dazen X7 comes loaded with tons of connectivity features like Indian 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and micro USB, OTA sync with OTG support.
Sensors: This phone is capable of running any utility app available on the Play Store. Its long list of sensor includes Accelerometer, Compass, Gyroscope, Light Sensor and Proximity Sensor. Presence of the Gyroscope sensor confirms that user will have smooth optimized gaming experience.
Battery: The Coolpad Dazen X7 is powered by a 2700 mAh non-removable battery, which is a sort of disappointment. The huge and high resolution display of this phone will let you make it to the end of the day on a single charge.
Coolpad Mobile User Interface
This phone might have launched just a few weeks ago, but it runs on a generation old version of Android (KitKat). It is also not clear at the moment whether this phone will be getting the Lollipop update or not.
- 131 gram weight and 6.5 mm thickness
- Dual SIM
- Ultra sharp Super AMOLED display
- Fast processor
- Expandable Storage
- Indian 4G and USB OTG support
- Great form factor. Just 6.5 mm thick
- 13 MP primary camera with 4K recording capability
- Buttons are not tactile
- Low capacity battery
Verdict: The Coolpad Dazen X7 could have been a great phone to buy, but its high price on zero brand equity is coming into the way. Other phones with almost similar specifications are available at much lower price in Indian market.
The brand does not own presence in India in terms of product sales and service. According to market buzz, the Dazen X7 will be imported by some mega smartphone distributors. This raises a question mark on post sales service in case of any accident.
