Thought to buy Cubot P20
Today I am going to share with you my experience, how I have decided to buy Cubot P20 smartphone. It was not there in my plan to buy a new smartphone for myself. However, still, I got this phone for myself. Let me tell you how I have decided to get this phone for myself.
It was my younger brother’s birthday, and he was pursuing his graduation 2nd year. So I was confused what to gift him on his birthday. Then I asked my friend for a suggestion. He suggested me to gift him a smartphone. This was a quite good idea. However, the problem was I was unaware of his requirement for essential features in a smartphone. What significant features did he want on his phone? As I had decided to give him a surprise gift so I couldn’t ask him for his requirements.
Then I decided to ask his friends about his likes and dislikes. They told me his few requirements. However, still I was confused, so again I asked my friend for the suggestion. He suggested me a phone which he got a few days back. It was Cubot P20. So I had decided to get to know more about this smartphone. I asked him to lend me his smartphone for 2 days, and he agreed. Then I started to use this smartphone. So here is what I have experienced.
Cubot P20 Appearance
First of all, let me tell you about the look of this smartphone. You will be happy to know that it exactly looks like iPhone X, but it has only got the similar look, not the price. So don’t worry this will not empty your pocket. The brand Cubot has made this phone which has got features of iPhone X and Huawei P20. They have tried to offer you more in less budget.
The hardware of Cubot P20
Everyone likes to have a smartphone with enough big screens. Even I prefer big screen as I love to watch movies and play games on mobile. So this Cubot P20 comes with quite a big screen, i.e., 6.18 inches screen which has an aspect ratio of 19:9. It comes with the resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixel. For me, the best part is it runs on the latest Android operating system, i.e., Android 8.1 Oreo. This smartphone has an octa-core processor, i.e., 4 x 1.5GHz ARM Cortex-A53, 4 X 1.0GHz ARM Cortex-A53 CPU which helps in quick functioning of the smartphone. Then I thought what type of sim it holds. When I checked, I found that it has Nano SIM holder.
Cubot P20 Display
Now coming to its display, you will be pleased to hear that it comes with IPS technology with multi-touch capability. To test its display quality, I played a video song. I felt great to see its clarity. I am quite impressed to see its display quality. It gives an entirely pleasant experience of watching high-quality videos, high-quality pictures and you will love to play games on this smartphone.
Storage and Memory of Cubot P20
If we talk of its memory, then I was surprised to know that it has got 4GB RAM and internal storage of 64GB which gives smooth functioning of the phone.Not only this much but also you will get expandable memory support of up to 128 GB. You will not face any problem of lagging issues. My brother loves to fill storage in the form of pictures and love to watch movies. So he can keep movies on the smartphone to watch whenever he gets bored or when he is outside. As my brother loves to travel and explore new places, so he clicks pictures to keep the memories. This phone gives him proper storage to keep pictures.
Cubot P20 Camera performance
Now if I talk about its camera quality which is also a significant feature, then you will be happy to know that it comes with a triple camera set up. That is with two back cameras of 20 + 2 megapixels and one front camera of 13 megapixels. Its image dimensions are 5164 x 3873 pixel. Those people who love to capture the moments, this smartphone is the best option for them. My brother loves to go out with his friends for study tour or college picnic. Moreover, he uses to hang out with his friends to different places and capture those moments. So, a good megapixel camera is all he needs. With the 20 megapixel camera, you can capture a good quality picture with excellent details. You can also make good videos as this phone has full HD recording. This phone has video capturing resolution of 2160p@30fps, and 1080p@30fps. It has many features for capturing an excellent quality picture or for recording good quality videos. Here you will get autofocus facility, digital zoom, geo-tagging, panorama, white balance setting, exposure compensation, self-timer, scene mode, touch focus, Sony sensor and many more. With all these features you can take a good quality picture and videos.
Connectivity of Cubot P20
Connectivity is an equally essential feature of a smartphone. The P20 smartphone has 2G, 3G, and 4G mobile network. All mobile operator does not provide the 4G network. So to make it usable for the full range of networks it comes with all the 3 types of network frequencies. It has WLAN connectivity of Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth V4.0, and A2DP. If you are outside somewhere and want to listen to the radio, then you can listen to it, as it comes with the radio. For the external connectivity there is a micro USB 2.0 port, and for audio connectivity, there is 3.5 mm jack. However, there is one demerit in this phone that, there are no dedicated slots for micro SD card. In slot 1 you can put a SIM but in slot 2 you can either put a SIM, or you can put a micro SD card. You cannot insert 2 SIM and micro SD at a time.
Battery life of Cubot P20
One of the primary point we always take care while purchasing a smartphone is its battery life. This smartphone comes with Li-Ion 4000 mAh non-removable battery. It has impressive battery life. If you keep this smartphone in standby mode, then the battery will last for up to 315 hours. If you want to use this phone for talking, then you can talk for 16.5 hours nonstop. People like me, who are a music lover and prefer to listen to music all the time, they can play music for 30.3 hours nonstop. Moreover, people who love to watch videos or movies they can watch videos for up to 11.4 hours without any interruption. Moreover, people like my brother who love to browse all the time then this P20 gives them the browsing time of up to 10.6 hours. Overall you can use this phone for 12.5 hours which is quite good.
Apps and UI of Cubot P20
It comes with some pre-installed app like Gmail, Google Play store, Google map, Clock, Sound recorder, Flashlight, Calendar, FM radio, calculator and many other apps. This smartphone also has got sensors like Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light and fingerprint scanner.
After using this smartphone for 2 days and after knowing about so many full features in the given price range I not only ordered this smartphone for my brother as a gift but also I had ordered it for myself also.
When I received the ordered item, it comes with a P20 handset with 4000mAh battery inside it, a charger, micro USB cable, protector case, 1-year warranty card and a user manual.
So when I gifted this phone to my brother, he was so excited because of its features and looks.
So this smartphone is perfect for those who have mid-budget and want some excellent features. With a dual rear camera, you can capture the best moments in your life. Not only these but also you will get an excellent display with high-speed octa-core processor to have eased on your smartphone operation.
