Cubot X18 Plus Review

Initial reports on the Cubot X18 Plus speak of consistently fluid operation. Cubot has the Android 8 user interface therefore optimally adapted to the installed hardware. Nevertheless, one should expect no performance miracle due to the rather low-performance processor. Experience has shown that the MediaTek MTK6750T quickly reaches its limits, especially in performance-hungry applications and graphically demanding mobile games!

Camera, battery and others

camera

According to the data sheet is the smartphone with a dual 20 MP + 2MP main camera and a 13 megapixel front camera fitted. To accommodate such equipment in a budget smartphone is unlikely, which is why Cubot one Fake Dual Camera served. This is characterized by the fact that the second sensor has no benefit! The non-exchangeable Accumulator owns one Capacity of 4000 mAh. Mobile supports the Cubot X18 Plus the usual in this country 2G, 3G and 4G mobile radio frequencies. Other features include a fingerprint scanner, single-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The sensory equipment is limited to a brightness sensor, a proximity sensor and an acceleration sensor. A gyroscope and an e-compass are missing!

Design

assessment

The Cubot X18 Plus is a classic smartphone in the low-price segment, which aims to score with a high-resolution 18: 9 display and an accompanying slim design. Although the MediaTek MTK6750T processor belongs to the older generation, it is an appropriate system-on-chip in the 100 € price range. How the smartphone in terms of camera quality beats will have to show. Initial experience reports speak of a rather meager recording quality, which is mainly due to the high-resolution image sensor. Should a test copy reach us, a detailed test report follows of course!
