Technion has not Diagnose the issue

Reviewed on Friday March 15, 2019 by , GA
I purchased my coolpad phone November 2018. January 2019 the battery got so hot I wasn't able to hold the phone. I took the phone to metro PCs corporate store in January 2019. The corporate store ordered a coolpad phone and when I came back to get the phone, I brought back the phone I had purchased. The phone that was ordered didn't come with a battery. Metro PCs team member took the battery from my purchased phone and placed in the ordered phone and the ordered phone didn't power up. I was then told it was the battery and the store don't sell batteries. The team member gave me coolpad phone number to call to get a battery. I called and got the address. I was told I would have to send the phone to EL Paso Texas and after they receive the phone I would have the phone back in 10-14 days. I mailed the phone on January 18 2019 and coolpad received the phone January 22 2019. I have been calling and get the same excuse. The technicians has not diagnosed the issue. It's now been over a month and I still not got my phone just excuses.
I would not advice no one to get a coolpad phone.

The phone constantly freezes, it doesn't recognize Tap, you can t send GIF message app crash. Just forget about this as a phone.

This is the worst phone I have ever owned. It's slow, crashes, just terrible. Metro will lose a good customer before the next bill is due. They played me for a fool and got my money, never again. BYE METRO !!!!!

Worst cell phone I've ever owned. T-Mobile should be embarrassed to offer this phone. It's slow. Voice recognition stinks. Everything about this phone is beneath market Standard. Have had it for about a month or two. I have been with T-Mobile since the 90s. T-Mobile should be embarrassed to offer this phone.

Not as bad as people say it is.

Keeping it real here, I'm on a very strict budget ATM. With family, college and part time jobs going back and forth most of my money go towards other important things other than a phone. I think the last time I ever cared so much for a specific phone was when the Samsung Galaxy s3 came out. Had this phone for almost 3 months now and it isn't as bad as the other people say here. My speed is fast, sound quality is decent and hasn't acted up ever. Either I'm lucky or just know how to take care of a phone. Rate it 7.2/10

Better options for $40, for sure.

Reviewed on Sunday September 30, 2018 by , McKinney TX
I got this phone as a replacement. $40 at MetroPCS. Was saving for a car, so I wanted to do a budget phone. However I typically do, and recommend The LG, or Samsung but something drew me to the Coolpad.

Two months later, It's not a Coolpad at all. Has the speed of a snail, cannot run multiple tasks without freezing, will make you say things that would make a sailor blush, totally unreliable for normal life necessities. Cannot run word, or any of the mimic apps of that.

I recommend this for your kiddo, pretty sturdy, you can't play apps though. But you can browse barely, and YouTube works flawlessly. Music players freeze, and turn off randomly. Pandora, Spotify etc.

Advice get a LG Pixie/alcatel, or a cheap Samsung.

Stay away..

I've been played

Reviewed on Wednesday August 29, 2018 by , Sacramento
I work too hard for my money to be played like this. I've only owned this phone for 23 days, and the screen has gone completely out. It's freezes all the time, and now it has completely gone black. The phone still rings and I have no way of answering. Then I took the battery out to try and reset it, and it's making a clicking sound. it's a worthless POS! and now I'm out of $100.

Worst phone I have ever had!!!!

This thing is garbage. It is slow to do everything. I have never seen so many unresponsive screens. And then to have metro zone come up every so often after unlocking screen is annoying. I can't wait to get a new phone and destroy this garbage by throwing it against a wall or sidewalk. And I have only had it for one week!

This phone is horrible and had the nerve to charge $100 but says they are giving it away for free smh never never again going to a new company and the worse part you can even listen to Spotify without it cutting off every 10 mins and don't try to download or play games you'd be wasting your time

I had bought this phone on my birthday and on the second day it started lagging. Then I froze. It did this for the few months I had this. This phone is a piece of shit. Don't buy it.

My experience with this phone

Reviewed on Thursday May 3, 2018 by , California
I got this phone for Christmas and my mom said it was an upgrade from my old one which was the Coolpad catalyst and let me tell you now, it is a downgrade. The apps always freeze, the camera is ok but recording video is a nightmare. The phone is worst than the Windows phone. Can't wait to get a new one.

The phone reboots itself even if it is fully charged. Apps freeze up constantly. Ringtones are unable to be converted from the "Play Music" like all Samsung phones have the capability to do so. Overall not worth the money at all!!!
