Phone Scoop

A respectable option

from Phone Scoop

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.

Catalyst

Great Phone For The $

Just bought this phone 2 days ago.  I was in the market for another phone as I wanted a back up secondary one to my main primary phone,-the Coolpad Catalyst.  This phone is the third Coolpad phone I have owned.   It is even better than I have expected.  The screen is bright & clear.  The audio is powerful without being tinny.  I needed no other extra SD cards for storage as the phone's internal memory is ample to store my apps on.   The Cricket network is not as good as AT&T, but that is to be expected being the "poorer cousin" to the larger carrier.  I don't really need it in that way as I use the phone mostly as another "mini computer" (wifi & VoIP) anyway.  I recommend it to the budget conscious.
