Coolpad Cool Play 6: A luxurious gadget within our reach

A mobile phone is a gadget which we are heavily dependent on. Even if we leave it for a minute, our hands itch! Whether it’s for making calls, messaging/chatting, playing a game, clicking a selfie or making use of our mobile internet for an array of things- checking movie schedule, booking a flight, searching something or just navigation…the list can go on and on and on.  While there are a numerous things we do with our mobile phone each day, unfortunately most of the above things require a lot of battery. My heart skips a beat everytime my phone has less than 20 percent of battery especially when we really need the functions of our favourite device.

Sometimes when I want to refresh my mind I just sit in the open air and play my favourite game or speak to a loved one. Mobile phone is the first thing we check when we get up and the last thing before we retire for the day. Whether it is setting the alarm or checking a message, it’s a device that comes handy.
