Cameras
The Coolpad has a 5 megapixel rear camera. Though it would look to you inferior to an 8 megapixel unit found in most low cost quad core handsets, the 5 megapixel of Coolpad delivers better results than others. The macro shots were great with sufficient focus; even low light indoor photographs come out well, though there are visible grains when you zoom in. Outdoor photographs were even better. The device exceeded our expectations of a 5 megapixel camera. The camera supports auto focus and HDR (high dynamic ratio,) apart from other features like auto ISO and white balancing.
The front camera, however, is not good; you can perform video chats with ease but it is not worth even trying a self-portrait.

SPICE COOLPAD<br><b>Verdict</b><br>Spice Coolpad is priced well and gives decent performance too. Its camera is definitely a surprise. However, the phone suffers from slightly inferior quality of plastic body parts and even accessories. Its battery backup also disappointed us.
