The Coolpad Note 5 Lite sports a 5-inch display with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels, which looks crisp. While the resolution is good, colour reproduction isn't very accurate. Everything appears to be washed out. If you have ever used an Amoled display, you might take some time to adjust to this.The phone has typical budget-level specifications. The Coolpad Note 5 Lite is powered by a MediaTek 6735 processor which has four cores clocked at 1.4GHz. The processor is quite dated, and so this phone has a hard time keeping up with competitors powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 425 and 430. The Note 5 Lite has a 13-megapixel camera at the back along with a single LED flash. It has a f/2.2 aperture. The camera app is customised by Coolpad and offers quite a few options to play with. There is a Pro mode that gives you manual controls, a Beautify mode, and a dedicated Night mode.The Coolpad Note 5 Lite is equipped with an 8-megapixel front camera with its own flash. Beautify mode is active by default when using the front camera. It has a fixed focus, but output is good enough to go on social media. The selfie flash helps when taking photos in low light.
