Expandable storage via microSD (up to 64GB)

The Coolpad Note Lite comes with quite limited 16GB of storage, but it's nice to have an option to expand over it using a micro SD memory card, but keep in mind that the phone supports card up to 64GB, which by itself is a limitation.

Lost of RAM (3GB RAM)

The Note 5 Lite features a very generous amount of RAM considering its an entry-level device. With 3GB of RAM, the phone should run smoothly and run multitasking without a hiccup.

Limited internal storage space, less than 10GB of user available space

The Coolpad Note 5 Lite comes wit ha very limited storage space. 16GB in total, but I've seen in a video that 6.11GB is being used (5.71GB by the system). So this leaves you with only around 10GB of storage for your apps, games, videos, images and other data.

Dual SIM support

Only 720p HD resolution, add a little more and get a 1080p device

HD is quite disappointing resolution for a 5-inch phone. By adding just around $30 more you can get the Lenovo K6 which is more powerful than the Note 5 Lite and comes with a Full HD display. I think phone manufacturer should try to push 1080p to entry-level devices at this point.
