CUBOT X18 Plus New Smartphone!

CUBOT X18 Plus is a nice upgrade from the standard X18 that I talked about a few months ago. This one comes with improved specs!

Main features: 5.99 inch Display, 2160×1080 pixels screen, MTK6750T Chipset, 1.5GHz processor which is Octa-core, Android 8.0 Oreo, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, 8.0MP front camera, 0.3MP + 16.0MP dual rear camera and Dual SIM Card Dual Standby!

Another good thing about CUBOT X18 Plus is how it comes with 4G support! The battery has 4000mAh! Which is very impressive. More than what Apple and Samsung gives you. But you cannot remove it which is a bit sad.

I like how there is a distance between the fingerprint scanner and the camera on the rear side. They learned from the mistake that Samsung did! On the back side you can see the phone is rounded for a nicer grip.

It comes with standard features that can be good when you are exploring the world like GPS and A-GPS. The SIM card size is Nano. SIM cards have truly gotten smaller over the years!

A good thing with CUBOT X18 Plus is how it packs 3.5mm audio jack. Something that is becoming rare that a phone has in 2018. I hope the dual rear camera craze goes away in a few years. I really don’t see why it would create that much better phones.

Mainly probably just a gimmick. Many phones these days jump on the latest trends but in a few years people get bored of it. I think the phone companies should look at what their users want instead. Apple for example should open up iOS and let the open source community explore the OS more so they can create Cydia tweaks. People loved iOS when they could do that! That was back in 2009. Since then Apple has become more boring and closed their OS more.

OUKITEL U18 New Smartphone!

OUKITEL U18 is a new smartphone that has a design that reminds us about the iPhone X! On the front side you could see that it features the bump at the top! iPhone X was Apple’s first phone coming with that all-screen display. Let’s see what OUKITEL gives you here.

Main specs: 5.85 inch Display, 21:9 aspect ratio, Face ID, 1512×720 pixels, Android 7.0 Nougat, MT6750T Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, Mali T860 MP2 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, TF card support up to 64GB, Black/Blue colour edition, VoLTE and 4G connectivity!

On the back side of OUKITEL U18 you could see that it looks like a Huawei Mate 9. Which is my favourite phone to this date. And on the front you get that fresh new expensive Apple iPhone look. It doesn’t pack any home button.

The main camera on rear side is a dual variant with 16.0MP + 5.0MP lens, on the front side you can find a 13.0MP selfie variant. If you want to listen to music then you need to use a type C port not 3.5mm jack. This can become annoying for some people.

I like how it comes with a fingerprint sensor on the back side. A feature most phones these days packs. Even the lower end devices. The battery comes with massive 4000mAh! And it’s even using Quick Charge with 5V-2A output.

OUKITEL U18 is a pretty thick phone would like to see it slimmer. It’s 10mm in thickness. And the weight is heavy too with 213 grams. This is probably because of the big internal battery. You get an adapter if you want to listen to music. It even packs a TPU case if you are interested in those things.

If you use an iPhone launcher in the Play Store then most people will believe you sport the latest iPhone X. Which can be a bit fun!

BLU R2 New Smartphone!

BLU R2 is a new phone that looks very cool in design. It has a fingerprint located at the rear side. Right below the camera. Reminds me a bit about the Huawei Mate 9 smartphone design. On the front you can see the BLU logo below the display.

Main specs: 5.2 inch Display, IPS LCD type, 720×1280 pixels screen, Android 7.0 Nougat, Mediatek MT6580 Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, Mali-400 GPU, 8GB Internal storage, 1GB of RAM and microSD card expand up to 64GB!

Two downsides I can see here with BLU R2 is that it looks like the GPU is not the MP2 variant of Mali 400. Also that it only comes with 1GB of RAM so this phone will probably not be that good for heavy games.

In terms of cameras on primary side the rear area you get an 8MP sensor with Dual LED and dual tone flash. You can record video with 1080p at 30 frames per second. The secondary camera has an 8MP lens and that also comes with dual LED and dual tone flash.

With music you can use a wired cable because it supports 3.5mm audio jack. The battery has massive 3000mAh inside. Which is pretty impressive for the low price this phone cost. It can last up to 725 hours over 2G and 625 hours over 3G in the standby section. When we talk about talk time you get up to 26 hours over 2G and 16 hours over 3G.

The colours BLU R2 exist in are Black, Gold, Rose Gold and Silver. It’s a pretty thick phone 9.6mm that is almost 1cm thickness. The weight is pretty standard with 156 grams. You can insert Dual SIM perfect for people that travel.

This company get mixed reviews on their phones. Some love some dislike. This phone got announced around 6 months ago.

Samsung Galaxy on5 New Smartphone!

Samsung Galaxy On5 was a phone that got released a few years ago but that still is a major hit among people! Let’s have a look at what you get on the inside.

Main specs: 5.0 inch Display, TFT screen type, 720×1280 pixels, Android 5.1 Lollipop, Exynos 3475 Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz Cortex A7, Mali T720 GPU, 8MP primary camera, 5MP secondary camera and 2600mAh battery!

One of my favourite things about this device is how it packs a plastic body. Something that we saw on Galaxy S2 to Galaxy S5! Many really enjoyed it because it felt good in hand and was durable and you could replace the battery fast. These days Samsung has complicated it with glass body that breaks more easy and makes so you can’t change the battery.

Galaxy On5 comes with Dual SIM support. Perfect for people who travel around a lot. I also enjoy how it’s fairly slim just 8.5mm thickness. In terms of memory you are getting 8GB internal and 1.5GB of RAM. Which may be a bit small for some new intense Android games.

You can expand memory up to 256GB with a microSD card! Two colours exist White and Black. It cost around the same price as a Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus. But that was a few years ago. Now it probably is way cheaper and affordable.

Galaxy On5 has a pretty standard Samsung design. It almost look a bit like Galaxy S2. Which was one of my first Samsung phones I bought. I want Samsung to go back a bit to that design. It was really nice in look.

Would be cool to see Apple release some low cost devices as well but I know that’s not their strategy when it comes to business. But I would love to see a 100 euro Apple phone.

Blackview S6 New Smartphone!

Blackview S6 is a new smartphone that comes with a very cool back design. I really enjoy this brand since they usually give you a massive battery on the inside.

Main specs: 5.7″ Display, IPS tech, 720×1440 pixels, Android 7.0 Nougat, MT6763VWH Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, ARM Mali-T720-MP1 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage and TF card support up to 128GB!

Blackview S6 also comes with support for dual SIM dual standby technology. The 3 colours that exist are Black, Gold and Silver. It even has support for speedy 4G data connection.

The camera on the front is a bit lower resolution than what I would like to see just 2.0MP lens. On rear it looks greater with 8.0MP + 0.3MP lens. One of the greater things with this device is the massive internal 4180mAh battery! But that also makes this unit super thick with 9.7mm thickness. Which for sure can be annoying if you are used to slim Apple and Samsung phones.

On the rear side you will find a standard fingerprint sensor. A great thing with this mobile phone is how the display on front really has slim bezels. It has 80% screen to body ratio and 18:9 aspect ratio. 282 pixels per inch!

Many of these more low cost Android phones are starting to bring out more fresh versions of Android like Android 7.0 Nougat and Android 8.0 Oreo. We are even starting to see cool things as Face ID unlock on cheaper Android mobiles. Which is good because it means everyone will have access to cool features your economic standing doesn’t matter.

I like how Blackview S6 still comes with a 3.5mm audio jack. If you are an old school person then I got good news it even packs FM Radio function. The mulit-touch will support up to 5 points!
