Cubot have released more than a few new smartphones over the last 6 months. I’ll keep updating this page with the ‘Best Cubot phones that you can buy’. All the phones included in the newest update to this guide are either available now or in early 2016. If you’re looking to grab yourself a Chinese Smartphone import bargain and want the best mobile technology with jaw-dropping price tags, then you’ve come to the right place.
Cubot is a relatively unknown brand here in the UK, so in this quick guide, you’ll find out which of their smartphone range is the best value for money, best for photography, best for battery life and the best all-rounder from Cubot.
I often hear people asking “are Cubot phones reliable?” and “are Cubot phones as good as well-known branded smartphones in the UK?“. Well, the simple answer is yes, Cubot have been working hard over the last 12 months to improve their smartphone range and include Full HD screens with 4G support on most of their new phones. You’d be hard pressed to find more features packed into such budget friendly phones.
With their popularity increasing it’s now even easier to find a UK supplier of Cubot phones. What this means you, is that you can buy with confidence knowing that you won’t have to ship your new phone half way around the world should you need to return it plus you’ll have your UK 1 years manufacturers warranty included. Cubot phones are well-built, and mine have survived more than a few drops where more expensive phones haven’t fared so well.
So let’s get to it, here’s the breakdown of the top 5 Cubot phones. I’ve split the guide into categories highlighting the key features. If you scroll down to the bottom you can see a side-by-side comparison of all the Cubot phones mentioned throughout this article.
Cubot S9 Flagship Smartphone

Cubot’s Next Flagship – Cubot S9

Recently announced by Cubot, the Cubot S9 is a big jump up in terms of hardware from the X17. The S9 will move away from MediaTek for its CPU and go with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823, which is a top-end CPU, the likes of which you’ll see in the Samsung Galaxy phones.
This is a welcome but surprising move from Cubot as they have traditionally marketed towards the budget end of the smartphone market. Will they outprice their loyal fans though?
The S9 is also set to include 6GB of RAM & a 128GBs of storage. If Cubot can pull the S9 off successfully they’ll be propelled into the mainstream mobile marketplace.
More information, price & availability on the Cubot S9 coming soon.

Best all-rounder – Cubot X17

Cubot X17 Smartphone
The award for best all-rounder goes to the Cubot X17. Recently released after the X15 the Cubot X17 is their latest flagship phone featuring 3GB of RAM coupled with a 64bit Quad-core CPU from MediaTek. The body is crafted from a titanium alloy frame, is only 6.1mm thick and weighs only 145 grams giving the X17 a very premium feel in your hand.
Like the X15 that came before, Cubot have also used a Full-HD vibrant screen with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. This all adds up to a whopping 441PPI which produces a very crisp image.
If you’re looking for a good all-rounder with plenty of power and a crystal clear Full-HD display, then the Cubot X17 won’t disappoint. It may not be as stylish as some of Cubot’s earlier phones but it’s definitely the best all-round Cubot phone you can get your hands on.

Best Waterproof Cubot Phone for Photography – Cubot X11

The winner is Cubot X11 with its fantastic Sony IMX214 Exmor RS sensor. You can find this sensor in lots of top end phones and although it’s not Sony’s newest sensor it still takes great shots with good low light performance. We can see the same sensor used in the Nexus 6, OnePlus and the Elephone P7000. Another benefit is the Sony lens also features a dual LED flash which helps gives to give skin tones a more natural feel.
Having a true resolution of 13MP and an aperture of f/2.0 coupled with a wide-angle you’ll be able to get some great shots with the X11. Add to this that Cubot X11 is manufactured to an IP65 waterproof rating and you’ll be able to get some really creative pictures.

Best Value Cubot Phone – Cubot Note S 5.5″

Cubot Note S Phone
One of Cubot’s latest phone releases the 5.5″ Note S gets our ‘Best Value Cubot Phone’ award with its beautiful & vibrant 720×1280 pixel HD screen. It’s not often you’ll find a phone featuring 2GB of RAM, a quad-core CPU & great battery life all for a little over £50.
It doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles of more expensive smartphones with the most obvious con’s being the cheap camera and lack of 4G support. Bearing in mind that Cubot had to cut back somewhere to keep the price so low, the camera performance trade-off for the vivid and responsive 5.5″ screen seems well worth it.
This is the perfect phone for someone looking to take the dive and purchase their first smartphone. Don’t forget to check out our Cubot Note S – Full Hands-on Review.

Best battery life – Cubot H2

Cubot H2 Smartphone
The Cubot H2, the successor to the popular H1, holds one of the largest batteries I’ve ever seen on a phone measuring only 9.2mm in thickness. The battery used inside the H2 is a polymer lithium-ion with 5000mAh of power which will keep even heaviest of users charged for days.
To top this off, the H2 also comes with an impressive 720×1280 IPS OGS display as well as an improved processor and extra 1GB or RAM compared to the H1.
With all that battery power, quick-charge is a must and Cubot doesn’t disappoint with their 5v/2A quick charging charger included. The H2 also comes with the ability to charge your other gadgets should you need to.
Carrying all this extra battery power does come at the cost of extra weight, but putting that aside the H2 is a great budget all-rounder that will last for days.

Our Cubot H2 review will be coming soon but check out our Cubot H1 review for now.

Most Stylish Cubot Phone – Cubot X9

Cubot X9 Aluminium Body
This award easily goes to the Cubot X9. It’s apple-esque shape, slim design and soft curves make this an amazing phone to look at and hold. The X9 has a vibrant 720×1280 screen which feels similar to the slightly over-saturated look of Samsung phones. The body is crafted from a titanium alloy and the whole phone only weighs 124g giving it a premium feel in your hand. You might even get a few people mistaking this phone for a well-known fruit phone, but that’s a good thing in my opinion.
If you’re looking for a stylish phone that will easily fit into your hand and not weigh you down then the X9 is for you.
