Edited by:"sunilm"Found 14th Oct
Seems like a cracking deal for the features... almost 10 times less than a samsung note 8!

Have ordered one for my mum... even has dual cameras

Anyone got any experience with cubot?

Price can be further reduced with code - see comments.

Make sure to check for the built in malware. Wouldn’t trust cubot as far as I could throw it, got rid of mine ASAP.

Already followed above steps - works. Deal amended.

I have a Cubot with a 6 inch screen. Bought from a UK seller on Ebay for £117 and I love it. I have had no problems at all. The camera is fantastic and the battery lasts much longer than my previous phone, Galaxy S4. Great value for money.

I work with Cubot to review their phones and can actually tell you they are on of the few china brands that don't install any bloatware or malware. Their android is stock not even skinned, the R9 is also a great phone. The x18 is their newest phone for less than this with higher specs

The X18 is £130

The X18 is £130

They did have malware called Adups. Very widely known and found by several security firms. They also use a skinned version of Android and not stock.

I scanned the x18. Could not find any virus.

can anyone tell me which phone if any this or the ×18 would be an upgrade from an s4?

I had the cubot max and malware bytes did not like it. It had Adups and it could not be removed.
you all have been warned now do what you please, I for one will never be touching a cheap Chinese phone ever again and that includes oneplus that have been found out in the last few weeks of being a bit shady.

Sold by Cobotdirect and Fullfilled by Amazon, so delivered by Amazon

My Moto G won't boot up now, just under two years old, would this Cubot Magic phone be a better or worse replacement for my dead Moto G, the price of this Cubot magic seems really good. If it came with bloatware added how could I remove it? Not very phone tecky so a little advice would be a great help.

Crappy 2600MaH battery though. Lenovo have shown you CAN fit a decent sized battery in a lower end phone with the P2.

Where are all the other phones with decent batteries?

Another £30 will get you a Vernee Thor E with a 5020MaH battery, better CPU and Fingerprint reader

Agree most reviews that are lengthy and have photo's tend to be fake

Thanks, i need a cheap mp3 player for the gym as my Moto E is getting slooooow...

Will this code work for other cubot phones from this seller ?

I've been reading a lot about Cubot and malware recently. They do seem to be addressing the old malware issues but if you buy from a UK company and find malware installed it would be very bad for their reputation. I bought a Cubot Echo from Appliances Direct about a year ago and found some minor malware on it. I would have returned for an unquestionable refund but it was very easily removed and I've had no probems since.

Thoroughly good phones and very little, if any bloatware installed, but buy from reputable UK company and you should be quite safe. Do a Malware check before setting up any important password related stuff though if possible, just in case.

Ordered this for my girlfriend, and I'm jealous

(from AliExpress Android)



£96.35 for the 3GB gold version, there is a 2GB version for about £11 cheaper, not sure if it would be the same performance as the 3GB.

Edit: if you are ordering, get a screen protector from somewhere else.

You really have no idea what your talking about lol

I've sold Cubot handsets for years, No Malware on any of mine when I have checked

This is certainly no S8 baut grat value for the cash, esp with another 15% off

maxmix

Can you get a spare battery for this, I got a Doogy Mini F1, couple of years ago, great phone, great reviews, battery fooked, cannot get one anywhere, great phone redundant.
