I read about the Malware on Cubot phones, they have just moved the malicious files into the telephone dialer app. Here is the link, techweez.com/201…re/

Going by this video:

Decent build quality, Micro-SIM (Dual-SIM with separate MicroSD card slot), all-plastic phone, removable battery, 18:9 display (there will be black borders if your media doesn't support it), LED notification, has task manager/home/back buttons on the display rather than capacitive buttons, pretty much stock Android - no bloatware, only basic sensors - no Gyroscope, good GPS, no quick charge, front selfie camera is good (also has a flash), rear camera can over-expose in low-light but it's good for the price of the device, decent battery life.

Hows the camera?

The spec looks better than my Huawei p8 lite 2017 - better battery, better camera.

For me 8 to ten days in London
Cubot make awful products. Compare for example the Cubot V2 activity tracker to the Miband 2. I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole personally, same goes for GearBest generally speaking.

Thanks for sharing. I wont be buying one now after reading that
That's the thing with these good value Chinese phones, they're great for the money but they're dodgy as hell with all that data collection. Perhaps that's where they make their money from selling our data. Shame.
Is there anyway to remove the malware from the phone?

Depends what size of phone you like mate . This cubot looks huge , but does look like a lovely screen . I have the x4 and it truly is a great phone , I just prefer a 5" screen due to being out cycling all the time and don't want to carry a phablet .

That's why Cubot moved the Malware into a different place so it made it harder for Anti Virus to pick it up. Leave it with me and I will try and find how you test for it. Cubot actually did a OTA update that moved the Malware file shady barstewards.

Specs can be misleading on cheap Chinese phones. The specs might look better than your Huawei, but that doesn't mean it performs better or as well as

If you buy Xiaomi , make sure it has the B20 UK 4G band. Many of their phones do not . Also NFC is a useful feature which is missing from lots of phones , like this one . But generally Sony ,Motorola, HTC UK models have NFC .

Umm very interesting you just don't know who you can trust, are they all at it & the bigger names just better at hiding it?
I bought a Cubot R9 from Laptops direct not long ago and while I am happy with the phone I am wary of the Adds & notifications that pop up as I am unaware of where they come from or whether they are genuine so tend not to react to them. I had read about the Wireless update app as it kept nagging me so Googled it & discovered how to block it (I hope).
I suppose if they can't be trusted it is sensible not to use them for anything vulnerable.

The clue is in the name: Near Field Communications. NFC is a set of standards for portable devices. It allows them to establish peer-to-peer radio communications, passing data from one device to another by touching them or putting them very close together ....... is this bluetooth ?

No . NFC and Bluetooth are completely different. The oyster card and all other bank cards use NFC for wireless payments. So NFC is only used for pairing and authentication. Bluetooth is to connect speakers , headsets and transfer data.
thank you for clearing that up for me. You seem to have knowledge of phones. What would you recommend for around £150 ... currently have a moto g v3 ... been excellent, but on its way out

Try the Xiaomi MI A1 it was on preorder a couple of weeks ago for around £165. It's a Android One phone meaning it runs stock Google OS instead of a skinned version of Android plus it will get the Android 8.0 and 9.0 updates.
so sorry to hassle you ... what shop did you see it on ?

Agreed. As someone who unfortunately owned an Elephone at one point, I really suggest sticking with Xiaomi or Huawei if you're going to buy a phone from a Chinese manufacturer. No support, plus nefarious manufacturers and crappy MTK chipsets make for a bad, bad combination.

Oneplus makes very good phones too without any Malware and have UK B20 band. Many Xiaomi phones like MI 6 lack B20 band. Mi Mix 2 is a good Xiaomi phone I like. Waiting for Mate 10 with Kirin 970 from Huawei.

People need to stop this obsession with B20. If they used a decent network then this wouldn't be a concern.

It is not an obsession . It is a fact . You cannot deny the truth because you live in the dream world or in China where they do not use B20. You can buy a vintage feature phone on 2G and be happy with it like an illiterate person . But that will not change the fact that all UK networks support B20 and have heavily invested in it. All the 4G phone s sold by networks support B20 The mobile signal travels further at lower frequency like with B20. . In America they also use 700mhz and 600mhz bands for the same reason. We want faster and better mobile reception not slow crappy connection so phones need to support all the bands esp B20 which is the best UK 4G band. Just because you say the earth is flat , will not make it flat.

The network I use doesn't use B20. I use 4G on a phone which has no B20 support and it works perfectly. It is more than possible to use a non-B20 phone and 4G data in the UK as long as you subscribe to a decent network.

Three UK uses B20 band as well. Just because your phone does not support B20 does not mean 3 UK does not use it. All the 4G phones Three UK sells support B20 band as well. Just because you use a phone not made for this country does not mean others should boycott B20 band and use phones made to work in China.
