Coolpad Cool Play 6 Price in Nepal(Expected): Rs. 35,000
Coolpad Cool Play 6 is a great combination of hardware and performance in a phone for a mid-ranger. The day-to-day task, gaming, and even the photography to the most extent must be pretty good on this device.
However, no expandable storage despite having a good 64GB internal storage can persuade users to look for the alternatives. For the given battery, the phone will definitely last for a longer period of time. Without a proper quick charging support, this smartphone will take more time to charge than you would like these days.
Its main problem is lack of a major upgrade from Coolpad Cool 1, which has most of its features. Besides, the price of Cool 1, which is currently Rs. 30,296 is likely to drop by the time Coolpad Cool Play 6 comes around making it a tough bargain.
It is not going to be the hottest thing in the market. But it is a cool phone nevertheless!
