Looks like a deal! What's the catch? Spyware? Missing 4g frequencies?

As far as I know, none of these. Cubot has official support in Europe. B20 on board.

What does b20 on board mean?

The -£6 top up only works if you buy directly from amazon.co.UK not fulfilled by amazon.co.UK

LTE Band 20 which is frequently missing in phones produced for Asian markets.

Any chance this would ever get Android 7? I suspect I know the answer already....

Previously when I purchased on Amazon they either return the money or refund the repair when I had an issue.

Ahh... push it! Push button realy good!

Thanks OP bought it.

But my £6 promo didn't apply (maybe because I bought the £30 gift card minutes before my purchase of the cubot)

It was related to a watch. They sent me 30% of price so I could repair it.

Yesterday morning price went up as well. You may check later around noon if it drops again.

How do you do a manual update? And is it worth resetting the phone to default?

I reset the phone immediately i got it but it made no difference it was still riddled with trojans as supplied.
Makes you wonder how that happens - whether its the manufacturer or third party supplier.

Anyway, you can download the latest firmware here - latest version 170426

cubot.net/sup…to/

It provides the instructions and the tool to update the system - make sure you read it through a few times its not a great english translation but once updated the phone system is clean and it becomes a good phone for the price.

Can you update the firmware using a 3rd party tool, i. e. TWRP?

Darn darny darn darn! Too slow.

There's a few for £59.99 here

V20 dated from April 2017? Strange. The latest official Cubot Manito ROM is implied to be V22 dated June 2017 at Cubot's own forum and Needrom and wizhealers. Obviously need to check legitimacy and applicability prior to contemplating installation.
V22 20170601 posted one month ago at forum.cubot.net/vie…516
compared to V20 170426 from 5 months ago post at forum.cubot.net/vie…374
both these and other ROMs inc custom referenced at needrom.com/cat…to/ and wizhealers.net/fir…to/

Reading the Amazon reviews, one user was able to install the firmware update just by transferring the image onto his phone via usb and then by going to Wireless Update, tapping menu, choosing Local Update and navigating to the file inside the phone.

Why bother with spyware? Aren't we under constant spying activities of all corporations incl Google?

i'm far more inclined to take this more seriously than an overpriced high end phone touting "animated emojis" as it's major innovation!
