Review: Coolpad Canvas for Cricket Wireless

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

Coolpad has crafted a fine, if simple, smartphone in the Canvas. The phone is one of the least expensive in Cricket's lineup and should be appealing to those seeking a point of entry in the world of smartphones.

The hardware is boring in terms of design, and the volume toggle and screen lock button are fussier than they ought to be. Still, the removable back cover, removable battery, and swappable memory cards give the phone some flexibility. The screen is okay, as is performance on Cricket's network. Voice clarity is very good, especially for this class of phone, though data speeds aren't the quickest. Battery life is just on the edge.

The stock Android operating system is simple to operate and customize. You'll find a fairly flexible camera application on board. It takes decent pictures for this category of phone.

Have I mentioned yet that Cricket sells the Coolpad Canvas for just $50 flat? Yeah, it's that cheap. The phone more than delivers the proper amount of value when you consider how affordable it is. The Canvas is a good option for people who need a basic smartphone.
