The Coolpad Group Limited is a Chinese telecommunications equipment company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. It’s the largest smartphone company in terms of sales in the domestic market. With 6 R&D facilities worldwide, the company continues to invest heavily in developing innovative cellular, wireless, and mobile technology products. Producing and launching over 85 different models and 50 million handsets a year.
Released in June of this year, the Coolpad Catalyst 3622A is the fourth phone from Catalyst to reach the US market. It’s a budget, 5” 4G LTE smartphone packed with many of the features of higher cost smartphones, including full built-in video calling, Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, and a fast quad core processor for keeping in touch with friends and family and entertaining oneself on the go.
The cameras are adequate for everyday use and include a 5mp main camera with LED Flash as well as a 2mp front facing camera.
The phone comes with a 2200mAh battery. MetroPCS offers the Coolpad Catalyst with up to 80% off the retail price, meaning that after the mail-in rebate the phone could be in your hands for as little as $19.00. Not surprisingly, it’s one of the lowest cost phones in their portfolio.
While the Coolpad Catalyst is well equipped, and has 4G LTE connectivity, most of its features reflect its low budget price including the 480 x 854 pixels screen resolution, one of the lowest screen resolutions currently available. RAM memory is also only 1 GB and the low pixel cameras mean photographs could turn out looking grainy.
In terms of looks and aesthetics, for the price you definitely are not going to get a Samsung Galaxy S7, but the phone adopts a curved handheld shape. The front is glass and the glass is contained within a plastic frame. The rear shell, also plastic, wraps around to meet the frame. The display takes on a bright gray hue when off and it stands out starkly from the pitch black bezel. Overall, a reasonable, low cost, big screen entry level solution with above average call and sound quality. Designed for the smartphone newbie, or those that don’t expect or demand too much from their phone.
