Conclusion

The Coolpad Note 3S is a fairly decently specced smartphone. The 5.5 inch HD display is adequate in this price range, while 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage are nice to have. Dual SIM and 4G VoLTE support are essential these days, so it’s nice to see them present as well. However, with smartphones like the Redmi Note 3 and Lenovo K6 Power, the competition is stiff. The HD resolution display and the much smaller battery hinder the Note 3S’s chances in the Indian market.
