Boost Mobile adds the cheap Coolpad Legacy S to its lineup
Boost Mobile is one of the few carriers that offer Coolpad smartphones in the United States. Following the launch of the Coolpad Legacy back in June, Boost Mobile revealed yet another Coolpad series phone that will be available starting today, the Legacy S.

Coolpad Legacy S is a very cheap smartphone that typically sells for $100. However, Boost Mobile now offers the device for just $60 (plus tax). Also, for a limited time, customers who switch to the carrier can head into a Boost Mobile store and get the Legacy S for free.

On top of that, new customers are also eligible to receive four lines for only $25 per month per line, with each line including unlimited data, talk and text, mobile hotspot per line, mobile-optimized streaming videos, gaming and music, as well as 4G LTE for everything else.

Specs-wise, the Coolpad Legacy S is a decent phone for its price. It has a 5.45-inch full HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, an 8-megapixel main camera and a secondary 5-megapixel camera in the front.

The phone is equipped with a quad-core MediaTek Helio A22 processor, coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. Coolpad Legacy S is powered by a 2,450 mAh battery and runs Android 9.0 Pie right out of the box.

I have a Coolpad legacy and it really sucks with no fix on site I wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone, check the reviews before you buy because I have been posting reviews everywhere, and I assure you it's all of them not just mine that has software and firmware glitches

I also have the Coolpad legacy and have had nothing but problems with the phone. Mine also has software and firmware problems. My phone powers off when I try to call out or when I receive calls, randomly erases all my text messages, turns off my notification sounds for my text messages. To fix the issue with texts I have to go into each individual person to turn the sound on. I went into boost Mobile and since I purchased my phone over a week ago. The only thing they can do is send it in to the manufacturer and have it fixed, which will take a week. During that time I will be without a phone. Which is ridiculous. I am to the point of going to another carrier.

Coolpad had told me if I wanted my phone to stop resetting so much! That I needed to turn off my LTE to CDMA but then it would run slower but the good news is it wouldn't restart as much (sarcasm)
