Cubot X16 Review – Straightforward beauty
The most fascinating aspect for me when it comes to the display of the Cubot X16 however is the combination of the fact that it has a 90% colour range of the NTSC palette and with a viewing angle of 178 degrees which is just two units shy of an insane 180.
Hardware and Storage
This is where it starts to get really interesting if you ask me because when a phone is being powered by a MTK6735A CPU which has a maximum speed of 1.3GHz as a 64 bit oca core you start to get butterflies in the tummy but when you realise that the GPU is the amazing Mali T720 and there’s a 2GB ram as well an internal storage capacity of 16GB with room for expansion, then the butterflies start to fly.
While the RAM has a speed of 800MHz the internal storage has quarter the speed but can read data at speeds of up to 200mbps and can write at a quarter of that.
The battery however is a low if you ask me. At 2500mAh, it feels inadequate to be holding a Cubot X16 but don’t be fooled by that, it comes with a rather impressive battery saver that will make the phone usage much better for you.
Camera and OS
The back camera that’s with dual flash, auto focus and a 16MP sensor was the very first thing that actually intrigued me to be honest, I mean 16MP on the X16, why won’t I notice that?
The camera is said to have a 5 element accurate lens as well as a stacked graphics sensor that will help ensure a great shot experience.
The front camera on the other hand is a great 8MP and with an angle of 88 degrees.
It comes with the Android 5.1
There’s is air control and lots of camera options like the picture in picture that anyone will find interesting.
The only downside of the Cubot X16 is probably the battery but in other aspects, it is a really great device and has earned an OPR rating of 9.9 out of 12
