MetroPCS' Coolpad Quattro 4G

If you've never heard of Coolpad, don't worry, you're not alone. Based in China, it recently introduced its first U.S. smartphone: the Coolpad Quattro 4G. Though its specs are low-end, it comes without any carrier strings on MetroPCS.

A little wide

Weighing 3.32 ounces, the Quattro 4G is lightweight, but bulky at 4.96 inches tall and 2.6 inches wide.

Thick profile

The Coolpad Quattro 4G is also 0.51 inch thick, giving it a not-so-slender profile.

Chic and sleek

Despite its boxy build, however, MetroPCS' Coolpad Quatro 4G sports an interesting and unique silver back plate.

Outdated Android OS

Unfortunately, the handset ships with the dated Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and a laggy 1GHz processor.

Say cheese

The Quattro 4G is equipped with a 3.2-megapixel rear-facing camera and a front-facing VGA camera.
