These days, most everyone has a smartphone in their pocket. The industry has stepped away from dumbphones and feature phones because most consumers demand a smartphone. But there are some who would rather have the simpler and less polluted advantages of a basic phone. That’s what the Coolpad Snap hopes to provide.
The Coolpad Snap is the latest flip phone from Coolpad that is being sold on the T-Mobile and Sprint networks. We don’t cover flip phones here very often but we also recognize that there are some readers who just might be looking for something such as the Coolpad Snap.
While some may never be able to part with their 12MP camera for the 2MP camera on the Snap, there are those who would. The Coolpad Snap is powered by a 1.1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 (MSM8909) processor, with 512 MB of RAM and 4GB of ROM, and has a 2.8-inch QVGA display, Snap also offers an external LCD to easily view incoming messages and alerts. This phone also has 4G LTE coverage including 600 MHz Band 71.
The Snap has everything anyone would need to make simple calls, maintain a calendar, stay connected, and set reminders. The Snap can be financed on T-Mobile for US$3 a month or purchase it outright for a measly US$75.
While many of us are attached to our smartphones, there is a notable and growing group of people of all ages that prefer the simple functionality of a phone focused on the basics. Coolpad Snap is for those who want to harness the fundamentals from their device without the incessant pressure to stay connected 24/7. As we continue to build the best technology for families, Coolpad is excited to bring this important device to market.
