There are plenty of options out there for those who would rather not break the bank. We even have a list of our favorites, but new ones keep showing up and today we are learning of a new contender coming to T-Mobile.

A reputable source has given us intel on what seems to be Magenta’s next budget handset – the Coolpad Defiant. We have no details on price or availability, but its specs suggest a very low cost.

The Defiant comes with Android 7.0 Nougat, a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, an Adreno 308 GPU, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a 5-inch 854×480 screen, a 5 MP camera, a 2 MP front shooter and a 2450 mAh battery.

Nothing to write home about, but this is a phone that could get the job done for a casual user. It will also likely be super cheap. But is it good enough for your needs? Sound off in the comments!

    This is exactly the phone Coolpad needs to become a major force in the North American phone market. Who isn’t clamoring for a sub 720p, 1gb ram phone!?

    Whyd they switch the stock button layout. That really bothers my OCD

    • Bailey

      Seems to be the norm for Coolpad/LeEco phones

  • loc’d up

    20 buck phone?

  • dsignrr

    1GB of ram and 8GB of rom is not worth buying, or worth manufacturing in the current market. You can spend 60bucks and double that easily. They are conning “uninformed buyers” with junk.

    This phone will be unusable in 6 months. .

    • just1box

      more like unusable 6 min after you power it up lol

    Times like reading these specs makes me think that Google should impose some minimum order of spec in a device that wants to call itself an Android… I’ve had 8gig rom devices, and between what the manufacturer put on and what Google put on I think I had a gig and a half left for the actual user…


    if it doesn’t have the denim feel like the Catalyst I’ll lose all faith in this band.
