Phone Scoop

Held back by some egregious missteps

from Phone Scoop

Based on my experience with the Coolpad Defiant, I can't recommend it to anyone. There are just too many problems holding it back. The hardware itself seems fine on the surface, for a $100 phone. The Defiant is well made and the materials are good enough. But everything takes a turn for the worse when you start using it. The display is just terrible, sound quality is so-so, and data performance left a lot to be desired. Battery life is a highlight. The core Android 7 Nougat operating system has all the features most people need, but it runs sluggishly on the under-powered phone. The camera is near disastrous, with its slow speed and results that just aren't up to par with the competition.
