Lots of phone manufacturers release their newest models at this time of the year (September). Well, in this article I am not going to talk about a premium expensive smart phone. Nonetheless, the Cubot CHEETAH 2 device is extremely interesting and worth our attention. When I’m reviewing it, the price is staggering (only 122.99 pounds). I say staggering because it has lots of things to offer. You will see in the next paragraphs.
The phone is simple and beautiful. When it comes to the design, there is nothing excruciatingly special. The back case is made out of plastic, but the metal frames give this device a pretty stylish feel and appearance. Honestly, you won’t have that cheap feeling every time you touch it and that’s something! It’s available in two colors: gold and black. I would’ve liked to see a combination of gold and black (both on the same place). But that’s just me…
The screen is pretty big (5.5 inch), but the phone won’t feel uncomfortable in your hands (unless you have very small hands). If you do, order this phone, try it out for a few days and if you don’t like it, just return it. What were we talking about? Aaaaa… The display… It’s big, it’s full HD and it’s a pleasure to use it. What I like the most about this device is the extremely thin side bezels. It gives you a feeling of immersive images and videos. And that feeling is great! And you will love that feeling! In my opinion, that’s the greatest thing about this phone: the display and its super thin bezels.
We are talking about an IPS capacitive display. Every image, detail, video that will pop in front of your eyes will be flawless. The wide angles are also a big advantage of the IPS panels. Considering the price tag, this phone was equipped with a magnificent screen which will deliver extraordinary content to its users.
It’s a smart phone and like any other smart phone on the market this one sports two cameras, as well. Well, they are something to write home about! Why am I saying that? The front camera features a 13 MP resolution and is perfect for selfies. The one on the back has a 16 megapixel sensor and you can take some amazing pictures and up to full HD videos. You don’t see two high-quality cameras on an affordable device like this very often.
When it comes to battery, everything is pretty standard about this model. Under the case lays a 3000 mAh battery, which won’t last for more than 1-1.5 days. If you are like me, it will last for at least two days, because I’m only talking on the phone and from time to time I am chatting to some friends on Facebook. One of the biggest surprises of this device is the USB type C port on the bottom. Honestly, I didn’t see that coming, but I’m glad it’s there!
Cubot CHEETAH 2 is a great phone for everyday activities. No one will envy you for the way it looks like or for the specs (which they are pretty good: an octa-core 1.3 GHz CPU, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage), but lots of people will envy you for the lower price you have paid for this much more cheaper Samsung – iPhone – LG version. The package contains all the regular stuff, but I want to highlight two important things: a protector case and a screen protector, which is already on the screen. All the big companies should make the same thing. After all, how expensive a case and a screen protector can be? On the other hand, they are extremely useful and will keep your brand-new device clean and clear.
