Coolpad Dazen X7 Review: Solid Build Quality, But Still A Bit Overpriced

By on Email @exolete

The Coolpad Dazen X7 comes with good build quality, a sharp vibrant display, good cameras and performance to boot. Its one of the first smartphones in its price bracket to come with Optical Image Stabilization for its rear camera. What it doesn't get right is the price. At Rs. 18,000 it is competing with the likes of the OnePlus One, Xiaomi Mi 4 and the Asus Zenfone 2, which are simply brand which people know more about. If the Dazen X7 was priced below Rs. 15,000 it would have been a great bet. But here its just overpriced, even though it has a premium build. Moreover, the battery-life here is pretty average and the speaker-phone/mic holes at the bottom just make the design look lazy. The Dazen X7 works just as a technology showcase, giving an insight into what the company has to offer, but other than that I don't expect even Coolpad thinks they are going to sell a lot of these.


The Dazen X7 is more a technology showcase, telling us that Coolpad just doesn't make budget devices and to that front, it works well.
