As strong as a gorilla? Affordable and robust, that is how the Cubot King Kong presents itself. It is a 5-inch smartphone with an averagely fast SoC in a weighty, water and dust-protected case. Is this enough for the tough reality of everyday life?

68.6% Cubot King Kong CS smartphone Review - waterproof phone for under 100 euros | Notebookcheck
Cubot wants to prove that outdoor smartphones can be even cheaper and launches the King Kong CS, a phone for less than 80 Euros (~$80) that barely has any memory, an outdated SoC without 4G capability, and a weak camera. But it is water- and dust-proof according to IP68...

78% Cubot KingKong 7 review: Inexpensive Rugged Smartphone
Source: Root Nation English
The main advantages of the Cubot KingKong 7 are IP68/IP69K protection and a relatively low price tag, which makes the smartphone an attractive option for those users who need this type of device. It has a decent display, a good level of performance with enough memory, and excellent battery life. At the same time, the KingKong 7 is hardly the most rugged device there is. The declared protection standards relate to dust and moisture resistance, but the manufacturer keeps silent about shock resistance. Without its ruggedness, it’s a simple budget Cubot smartphone with its own pros and cons.

Cubot KingKong 7 Review: Modern Design in a Rugged Smartphone
Source: Awaqua English
After several days of active use, I was left with good emotions from the Cubot KingKong 7 rugged smartphone. This model of the device received a number of interesting features, both in design and in terms of performance. For example, the main camera module looked very nice and harmonious on the back of the device. I also liked the build quality and the materials used. In addition, the screen I can also attribute to the merits, since the brightness was very good, as for a budget device. I also liked the color rendition and contrast level. The rest of the parameters remained almost the same as on any other secure smartphone. But I can attribute a significant disadvantage – this is 5000 mAh battery capacity. Although, on the other hand, the thickness and weight of the device became less and it was very comfortable to use the smartphone.
