Ah no, sorry bud


Just received mine, really poor quality and very tinny unfortunately.


The link goes to a 404 already. Does anyone have a link to their shop as I can't find that either


I use this site for cheap earphone reviews


"Got some decent reviews. For just under £3 a pair." I need a couple of pairs but can anyone point me to the decent reviews? I see three on Amazon but can't find the product sold elsewhere under this name.

You’re basically just buying a phone from a website, it comes unlocked to any network. It’s shipped from China, so any problems, you’re better of buying through a credit card. I’ve had a few phones from China and never paid import tax. Best getting normal slow delivery as you seem to avoid it more. Had a cubot phone and did have malware built into the android system, you can get that with some Chinese phones. It’s more a pot luck sometimes for that.


Hi. Sorry. Bit of a newb here. Can someone explain how this website works? What are you buying? Is the phone British? Will you get stung by import tax? How much would you get stung? Would you be able to stick any sim in this. Why are people saying the phone would have malware installed from unboxing? The reason “newbs” like me end up going with carphone warehouse each time is because they don’t really understand these things. Plus I’ve been with iPhones since 2007 and I’m a bit lost in this world. Thanks all for not picking on me too much!(highfive)


Sadly mine was also directly from cubot. Don't get me wrong it was a good phone but after a scan on two different malware detector programs i decided I would only use it for non important use. Edit I will add when used as a work phone the build quality was impressive, took a good beating.


It must depend on the seller then. I've had 3 cubot phones a max, mix and a second max for the m-i-l but I got from Cubot Direct on Amazon and I always install Sophos on my phones and they were clean. I'll have to try Virus Total as in the news articles. I've also got a Ulefone S9 Pro and Oukitel K3 which I haven't used yet so I best check them! :)


Range: Depending on the materials of the building, 5Ghz can penetrate better. Where it doesn't penetrate, you get more reflections which can increase the range over 2.4 (although admittedly, 2.4 normally has the longer range) Bandwidth: Much faster streaming. Assuming you have a decent internet connection, you will download a lot faster over 5. This might not matter if your phone is the only device in the house. But connect to a busy access point and it will matter. It would certainly matter at a big business, public wifi hotspots or a college for example. Think about home broadband: Mine is 200mb. If my phone and my wife and kids phones were all on 2.4GHz, not only would my maximum download be only a quarter of what I could acheive via a LAN connection, but with contention (the sharing of the access point with other devices) I get nowhere near that. Wifi operates on a "collision avoidance" protocol rather than the "collision detection" of wired devices. So when a device tries to talk to the access point and the access point misses the packet because it clashed with another device, the access point tells them both to back off for a random amount before they try again. The more congestion, the higher this random amount, so the lower the throughput for all devices. Interference: 2.4GHz is crowded with interference from microwaves, video senders, baby monitors, radio controlled drones, cars etc, Lots and lots of things share the 2.4GHz. 5GHz is reserved for wifi devices and suffers much less. Bluetooth uses 2.4GHz and usually even uses the same antenna. Have a bluetooth device connected to your phone and it will impact wifi performance. Commercial wifi controllers will operate fast lanes and slow lanes and 2.4GHz devices will be given a lower priority over 5GHz devices. Furthermore, if there are old 2.4GHz devices that might only support 11mbs, the controller will drop its speed to the lowest common denominator so that it talks to your 54mps phone only at 11mps - it has to do this otherwise if it talked at 54mbs, the older devices wouldn't be able to respond. The joys of backwards compatibility. Even home access points do that if you have old devices around. So 5GHz all the way if you can! You asked! :)

Thats a long time time, by modern standards


6000 mAh or 6Ah Battery...2Ah fast charge rate... From totally flat would only take 3 hours...


Gearbest are good with shopping and I have yet to see any customs on phones in have had from them.


10 watt charger on a 6000 mAh battery equals an all night charge, thats kind retro. Future support is the thing with these type of oem's, they tend to build and abandon.


Well, if it gets through without any customs or VAT charges, it makes this a very sweet deal. As Dirty Harry would say, "are you feeling lucky" XD Anyhow, the clock is ticking and unless they extend the offer, it's make your mind up time ;)

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.


I was wary so installed Malwarebytes. It picked it up but couldn't remove it as it was a system file, The Rom on 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


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


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.


What was the malware? Or what did it do, just out of curiosity?

Cubot Note Plus 4G Smartphone - BLACK - £88.06 @ GearBest
Found 24th MarFound 24th Mar
3GB RAM 32GB ROM 13.0MP Rear Camera

Might be uk ones on eBay now and again


My mate had a Cubot and its very good so I been thinking about gettibng one for my daughter something like this. However in the last few days his has developed a frozen screen problem which nothign will shift including a reset. So he inquires about a repalcement screen and is told he can get one from China - shipped anytime between April and June! Not exactly practical then. I assume you cant get screen replacements in UK.


You can add oreo so makes a good deal

They might be on the play store, but it doesn't make them any less useless.

Well all know who pays extra for a audio and its not sheep! 😋


Is the Cubot X18 Plus compatible to use with a Virgin contract Sim?

sammybo22 Cubot Echo


Flashing these ROMs was pretty straightforward with a bit of trial and error. Both phones came completely sealed in their boxes and were bought from well known UK suppliers. The reason they get away with selling them is the three week delay which allows reasonable doubt that the user has actually installed some malware accidentally, when the Malware is in fact built in to the Operating system before being shipped from China. My Cubot has just offered me an update which apparently deals with all previous malware related problems. I've just installed the new update so we'll see....


if the box looks like it has been tampered with, a vendor has most likely flashed an adware ROM. if you aren't competent at flashing ROMs, i'd avoid chinese phones to be honest. it's a small price to pay for great hardware at a low cost.

Well i used it for about 5 hours a night watching movies. The battery did not last long and had to be constantly on charge whilst in use. I would also suggest the lack of cpu cores also made it struggle when playing basic games.


What kind of usage was yours? Just so someone with the same type of usage knows this is not the right phone.


I own this phone. It just died after a couple of months use. It always struggled as it was under powered. AVOID


Well it's also 90 quid. Can't expect top specs and a 4K screen at this price. It's clearly a budget phone for people with no demands. There are many people like that, who have no idea what a chip even is... let alone the difference between a Mediatek or Snapdragon and what the latest chips are.


I have this phone and can't fault it. Very quick and responsive.

Heck. 720p on anything bigger than 5"5 is unusable. And, although decent for the money, this does not have any flagship specs.


please show us a link to whatever story you read about gearbest. is it the story about the reddit posting that was responsed to by gearbest the next day, ie poor passwords from other account used for gearbest accounts, not necessarily that gearbest was hacked? interested to know, as i use GB from a pc, not by mobile app.


There was supposed to have been a plus model of this phone, I'm still waiting for its appearance


That is the point that price you can't get much better thing if you willing to pay a bit more you can get decent phone which can survive few year there is a one example below have a look.. just pay 20 quit more which %25 ish .

Replacement batteries available from AliExpress from £10.24.


It’s removable so you can purchase and carry a spare for a few quid more, meaning you can potentially have 5600mAh worth of power. It takes 30seconds to change a battery and reboot my phone and I’m back to 100% battery life without searching for a plug or carry a bulky power pack.....


That battery could have been better. You can buy other budget phones with better battery life.

I've just downloaded some kids games (my little pony) on my Cubot and they are playing with absolutely no problem so what are you torking about.


The first CUBOT Rainbow and the Note S are superb phones, you get 1GB Ram and 16GB Rom which is great for the price. The screens give-out gorgeous clear vivid colours, smooth performance (no lag). Good build quality with a stylish sleek design, even the retail box is well designed. These phones even come with a screen protector attached and a clear gel case. 8) The only negative would be the Rainbow 1 & 2 and the Note are 3G phones, no 4G. Word of warning, don't try and remove the battery on the Rainbow 2, its non removable. I'm not sure why... as you can still remove the rear back cover.


Battery drains if you're using internet in a couple of hours. As for 1 GB being puny for apps I don't see that at all. You been reading too many articles chum.


The 1GB is the deal killer. If anything kids max out smartphones more than 'oldies'

If you don't want 4G this Cubot Echo is a better deal. Battery life is good, and so is the rest of the phone. Had one for a year now and well happy with it.

3G only and smallish battery would rule this out for me. At this price level, this one looks a little better value; or this which has a bigger battery capacity;

Thanks pxh !..... placed it on the Amazon Wishlist.


It was the same price about three weeks ago. Just put it on your Amazon wish list and you should get a notification when the price drops again.


I don't think the Trustlook app is accurate. I use the Chinese Backdoor Malware App (downloadable from which indicates that the Adups vulnerability is present but unfortunately, DeBloater is unable to access and disable it. Apart from rooting, the only option seems to be going into settings/apps and disabling Wireless Updates (although this seems to be a necessary action every time you reboot the phone). As for the battery, I get about 8-9 hours from it, which is more than twice the amount I've gotten from any previous phone batteries. The charge time from 0-100 is about 6h 40m. I've also purchased 2 spare batteries from Ali Express which only cost $10.93 each.


Appears it was a lightning deal that has now expired. Still has 20% off though.


just been to the website and the price quoted is now £125.99 ! .... any idea where to find the £85.99 price ?


Despite the relatively unknown brand I have to say I've had a few cubot phones and they do seem to be well built. When compared to more popular models with higher price tags then of course they fall short but if we are talking about 'more bang for your buck' then it's a winner. Negatives on this model are a poor camera in low light and no 4G. Get past those points and you've got a lot of phone for your money. Got my umax from UK eBay seller for £75.00.


I think it only has 3G, so be aware if you need 4g.


I have purchased a different phone from this seller and I have to say their customer service is superb. I had a problem with my phone after two months and they offered me a number of options. I opted for a full refund, so I sent the phone back and they gave me a refund, there was no problem with the service at all.


Hi all was thinking that if Amazon state this ( You Save:£19,909.01 (100%) ) surly must be free you do your math!!!


First phone I've seen that I'd consider swapping my Lumia 1320 for, because it has the 6inch screen. I know a few folks who have Cubots and highly rated them.

Do you mean the factory-applied screen protector film has worn through, or the the actual screen has become pitted, or something else? Mine still has the factory protector film in place and is not showing any issues at all. Cheap yes, but excellent value. If my device has not been through any quality control then it clearly indicates superb base manufacturing and finishing processes.


You can still return it. I've done it. This is cheap Chinese build with no quality control. Just good is not good enough!


Oh no!!! Really worried about giving this to my daughter for Xmas now


I've had it for less than 3 weeks and the screen is already worn out. I'm returning it.


No, that one is really too thick, unless you just want to use the phone... as a phone only. Yes, I could have bought an aftermarket thin screen protector but now the damage is done. I'd still keep this phone, though, because at this price it's a bargain. And who care if this will ever have a resale value. I'd be happy if it lasted two full years. Technology is disposable nowadays. There's no point spending £500 on a bloody phone!

I turned vibration off completely as I didn't like the sound it made. It has stayed off.


2600 mah battery and a dated CPU Rather spend an extra £15 - £20 and buy a Xiaomi from Gearbest etc. Brought the Xiaomi note 4 for my son, he loves it


I've set this phone up for my mum & she's very happy with it. One small bug I've discovered is if you adjust the settings to disable vibration when tapping the virtual buttons at the bottom of the screen it doesn't seem to save the settings and the vibration on tap continues. Anyone else tried this?


Got mine yesterday working great so far, well happy.


The malware emerged just after Christmas and re flashing the firmware just doesn't clear the vulnerabilities for once @Sam_of_London was correct. Amazon have agreed a return for full marketplace refund which surprised me. I tried everything to remedy this but couldn't fix the phone


That's not a Custom ROM it's just a custom recovery TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) a lot of mobiles running a Mediatek chips don't have a lot of choice of custom ROMs compared to Snapdragon chips. Try this website. But from what I've seen there's not a lot if any Custom ROMs for this phone, sometimes it's just not worth the time for developers to make a ROM for a phone like this.


Got a link for a good rom for this? Is this one okay?
