Though the Coolpad Quattro 4G is affordable and has excellent call quality, consider other inexpensive MetroPCS 4G LTE phones instead.

Phone Scoop

The Quattro includes LTE, a 4-inch screen - and of course Android - all bundled in an affordable package

from Phone Scoop

The Coolpad Quattro offers a lot for its $149.99 price point. You get a good piece of hardware, solid LTE 4G performance, and a usable version of Android. It's not without a few faults, though.

The Coolpad Quattro offers a lot for its $149.99 price point. You get a good piece of hardware, solid LTE 4G performance, and a usable version of Android. It's not without a few faults, though.

Despite good network performance, the Quattro suffers a bit when it comes to voice calls thanks to an anemic earpiece and so-so audio quality. I was expecting somewhat better battery life, and the Gingerbread system software felt sluggish at times.

If you want to listen to music, watch some videos, or play some games, the Quattro is a great media device. The same can't be said of the Quattro's ability to capture media, which is about the worst I've seen this year.

MetroPCS offers a handful of LTE 4G smartphones at the same price point of the Quattro, and each has its pros and cons, but the Quattro is definitely a better buy than the Activa 4G.

A reasonably priced prepaid phone that makes solid and clear calls

Despite the solid call quality and 4G LTE data speeds, both the phone and Coolpad have a long way to go. And instead of coming out with a bang, Coolpad debuted more with a whimper.

Despite the solid call quality and 4G LTE data speeds, both the phone and Coolpad have a long way to go. And instead of coming out with a bang, Coolpad debuted more with a whimper. The Quattro 4G has frustratingly low-end specs, and its Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS is a real letdown. If you want a 4G LTE prepaid device on MetroPCS, consider the LG Motion 4G instead. It has a dual-core processor, a 5-megapixel camera, runs on Android 4.1 Ice Cream Sandwich, and most importantly, it's the same price as the Quattro.
