In today’s scenario, Triple-SIM phones are really not that common, but there might be plenty of scenarios where a user may need such phones.
One may use multiple carriers because of different signal availability or favorable offers and pricing schemes, or you might use a local SIM when travelling without disrupting your regular routine.
Delivering consistent innovative devices in the market, Coolpad is one of the few manufacturers that offer a Triple-SIM smartphone. The new Coolpad Mega 3.
This wonderful device is priced at just under INR 7,000, and hence, at a time when it is becoming difficult for vendors to create differentiation – a device like this stands out because of the tremendous value for money that it offers.
Coolpad Mega 3 look and feel
The review that we have got is – white in color. The Android navigation button icons are printed in gold below the display, and aren’t backlit. There’s a Micro-USB port on the bottom and a 3.5mm audio socket on top.
On opening the rear shell, you can see three Micro-SIM slots arranged around the camera sensor. The battery of this smartphone is visible, but not removable. If you look carefully, you’ll see a separate microSD card slot right at the bottom as well. Overall construction quality feels absolutely perfect for this price range.
Coolpad Mega 3 specifications and features
This phone comes with 5.5-inch screen which carries a resolution of 720×1280 – we found this to be quite good enough. Sharpness and viewing angles are both quite good, and you shouldn’t have any problems enjoying videos.
It comes packed with MediaTek MT6737, which has four ARM-A53 cores running at up to 1.2GHz and integrated Mali-T720 MP2 graphics capabilities. There’s 2GB of RAM and 16GB of fixed storage that comes with this phone. You can add a microSD card, but the phone only supports capacities up to 64GB.
When it comes to camera – both the cameras have 8-megapixel sensors and LED flashes. The Coolpad Mega 3 supports Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, FM radio, and GPS. 4G and VoLTE are supported on all three SIMs, one at a time. There’s no fingerprint sensor and no support for quick charging.
Coolpad Mega 3 performance
Using Mega 3 is a great experience – especially when you consider that this device is available for under 7k bracket. While reviewing this we played a lot of videos and the device behaved in a smooth manner, even media streamed over Wi-Fi looks crisp and smooth. Casual games also hold quite good with this device.
While reviewing the device, we realized that the front camera of this smartphone is really good with selfies. It is important to note that the front camera defaults to “beauty mode” which tries to guess your age and suggests descriptors ranging from “diligent” to “nymph” to “heartthrob”.
When it comes to battery life – it is quite good, with the Mega 3. We were able to stretch well over a day with simplistic usage, involving some video streaming and gaming.
Coolpad Mega 3 is a cool device that comes at a wonderfully placed affordable price point. As an organization delivering innovative devices for its customers – Coolpad has given Mega 3 its own unique feature, powerful performance as well as ensured that it is not heavy on the customer’ pocket.
