Reviews for the Cubot King Kong 9

Cubot KingKong 9 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Cubot KingKong 9 is a very well-built rugged smartphone that will serve all your needs and requirements at your workplace and then some more. The secondary display will also come in handy and you will come to appreciate it. The cameras are so on point and so is the performance of the smartphone that can help keep up with your activities. On top of that, it ticks all the right checkboxes that mark this smartphone as one of the strongest and most rugged smartphones. It is built like a brick and at 390 grams, it even weighs like one. This is partly thanks to the huge battery that will keep your phone running for days, another strong point for the Cubot Kingkong 9. However, if you want an alternative smartphone, then keep in mind that the features provided by the Cubot Kingkong 9 cannot be provided by other smartphones, and definitely not at this price range. The device is a worth-it option if you want a rugged or durable smartphone and provides value for your money.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
