The Coolpad Flo

The Coolpad Flo was designed specifically for the GoSmart customer and optimized to take advantage of the amazing nationwide network. It has been optimized around the features most important to GoSmart customers. For starters, the touch screen is a 4.5 inches…that’s big! It’s a half an inch larger than the iPhone!

Watching video, playing games and taking photos is greatly enhanced by its size. We loaded it with a great 5 mega pixel camera and flash, and a front-facing camera for video calling on Google Hangouts, Skype or any video calling app of your choice. Memory is not an issue because it comes with 4 Gigs of storage that can be easily upgraded to 32GB using the MicroSD slot. The large screen, coupled with the 1 GHz Qualcomm Dual-core processor, displays video beautifully and powers the latest Google Maps and GPS without a hitch. Talk time will never be a problem because of the long-lasting 1880 mAh Lithium Ion battery.

Basically this phone was designed to eliminate the DUM. No long term contract, no ridiculous device cost, no exorbitant monthly fee’s. The Coolpad Flo is SMART. We like to Live Smart!
