Review: Coolpad Quattro 4G for MetroPCS
The Coolpad Quattro offers a lot for its $149.99 price point. You get a good piece of hardware, solid LTE 4G performance, and a usable version of Android. It's not without a few faults, though.
Despite good network performance, the Quattro suffers a bit when it comes to voice calls thanks to an anemic earpiece and so-so audio quality. I was expecting somewhat better battery life, and the Gingerbread system software felt sluggish at times.
If you want to listen to music, watch some videos, or play some games, the Quattro is a great media device. The same can't be said of the Quattro's ability to capture media, which is about the worst I've seen this year.
MetroPCS offers a handful of LTE 4G smartphones at the same price point of the Quattro, and each has its pros and cons, but the Quattro is definitely a better buy than the Activa 4G.
