The back of the smartphone comes with all Aluminium body , However at the both ends plastic is used which increases the grip while holding device .


At the back there is camera placed in the center and Just Near the camera the flash light is placed . Fingerprint sensor is placed under the camera . Overall the rear build quality of coolpad note 5 is tough and good .
