Reviews for the Cubot KingKong 7

75% Cubot KingKong 7 review - Cheap Rugged Smartphone with IP Certification | Notebookcheck
The Cubot KingKong 7 makes no secret of its claim: The metal design already reveals that the phone wants to face extreme conditions, water, dust, and shocks. And it does not cost 300 Euros. Can that work well?
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.

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.

76.5%: 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.
