Heat just for the removable battery.
Hot, a good speck and through Amazon, get it Monday, what more do you want for the money (don't answer that you tight gits)
this look ok to me, what would be a better phone for less than £100?

Xiaomi redmi note 4
cold votes must be coming from people who have bought a Cubot before and had the malware appear two months down the line. Amazon refunded me because the seller didn't stock the phone anymore, which surprised me. I saw the warnings on here when I bought it but thought I could flash it with a custom rom, only to find nobody has made one. Maybe this one doesn't have the time bomb malware embedded in the OS but I won't be taking the risk.

Take the reviews with a pinch of salt also as they started listing the phone in Jan 2018 but the reviews are from 2016/17

What was the malware? Or what did it do, just out of curiosity?
I had a cubot once and sent it back. Had malware that tracked login details for apps etc. like Facebook, email, online banking. It’s what’s put me off buying a Chinese brand that’s not regularly sold in the uk.

How did you know you had malware? Did another app report that it found some?

I was wary so installed Malwarebytes. It picked it up but couldn't remove it as it was a system file, The Rom on cubot.net also had it built in but once it has activated itself there is no way to remove it. I don't know what it was doing, I read somewhere it was sending data to a google server.
Here I think

It was built in the system as the system updates. So even forcing stop it would start up again. Malware apps picked it up. Tried rooting the phone so I could remove the system app. But no root would work, done that before on other phones.
