- Analysis by KJ David

The 2019 Coolpad Legacy, initially carried by MetroPCS, is not exactly a legendary smartphone in terms of pros and cons. In fact, it shies of some popular eight-core-powered models, running on a middling 1.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 450 processor coupled by no more than 3GB of RAM . In comparison, some of its mid-end contemporaries rely on eight-core engines that clock in at 2GHz and offer 4GB RAM counts.

Its specs also include a modest 32GB-only internal memory that can at least be expanded by a maximum of 128GB. Despite suffering from some cons on the hardware front, though, the Legacy features a surefire pro in its robust 4000mAh battery , which, although won't put it alongside the leading big-battery models around, nevertheless sounds generous relative to its feature set.

Its perks also include a double-lens main camera comprising of a 16-megapixel primary lens and a 5-megapixel deputy lens, together offering things like Intelligent Scene Mode and hardware-level bokeh photography. Perched right underneath its rear camera is a fingerprint scanner that pairs up with the phone's facial recognition system for security.

Up front, it touts a 13-megapixel selfie camera that sounds just about right, at least for a mid-end smartphone that was released around the time of this data-driven Phonerated review (May 2019). As for its display, the Legacy follows the footsteps of some full-fledged flagship phablets, offering a wide 6.36-inch 18:9 screen with a Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and a damage-resistant Gorilla Glass 3 finish.

Among its other pros and cons are Wi-Fi calling, VoLTE (voice over LTE networks), and standard 4G-LTE network connectivity. It also has an M4/T4 hearing aid rating and it runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.

To rehash, Coolpad's Legacy may not leave that big of a mark in the mobile world, but it still sounds like a feasible choice for stamina- and photography-cautious mid-end smartphone shoppers.
