Question- How is Design and Build Quality?

Answer- Coolpad Note 3 Lite has almost the same design language which was seen in the Coolpad Note 3, but this one has a smaller screen so it fits better in the palms and feels solid. It feels sturdy in hand but the material used does not look that premium. Plastic is used on the back with a grainy texture making the grip a little handier. The buttons are also made up of plastic and feel decent. Overall, it has a decent build quality and design.
