84% Cubot Note 50 Smartphone Review: Worthy of your attention
Source: Root Nation English
Overall, Cubot Note 50 is a good smartphone for its price segment. Among the obvious advantages: cool stylish design and build quality, adequate performance, good battery life, good equipment and, of course, the price (if you take it at a discount). Among the disadvantages, I can single out: weak bundled charging, lack of support for fast charging and frankly weak cameras. Although I’ve already said about the cameras: if this point is important to you, then you shouldn’t consider such budget phones at all. I can recommend the Note 50 to those who need the most budget-friendly smartphone possible, and at the same time, it should be more or less comfortable to use for simple everyday tasks, such as the Internet, calls, instant messengers, videos, music, not very demanding games, simple photos and videos.

For comparison, take a look at the pros and cons to make your final decision. The new Cubot Note 21 has its drawbacks, but it also has its advantages, thanks to which this affordable smartphone lasts a long time, takes acceptable photos, has a 90Hz screen and does a good job of all the tasks it is supposed to do.

79% Cubot Note 40 Review : What to expect from a budget smartphone
Source: Root Nation English
Affordable smartphones always involve compromises, and the Cubot Note 40 is no exception. Therefore, it is commendable that the manufacturer did not sacrifice the build quality and design when developing this model. It is also worth noting the decent speed of the interface, good battery life, and stable performance with wireless networks, features that were lacking in budget smartphones in the past. However, if high-quality photos and videos from built-in cameras are essential for you, it may be worth considering smartphones that are priced twice or thrice as much.

Cubot Note 40 Review: Low-Cost Phone with iPhone Design for $99!
Source: Tech X Reviews English
The Cubot Note 40 is an impressive budget-friendly smartphone that successfully combines a sleek iPhone 12-inspired design with solid features and performance. Priced at just $99, it offers an affordable alternative for those looking to own a stylish and capable smartphone without breaking the bank. It might not be a flagship killer or even a middle-range phone, but it offers great value for everyday use. It looks stylish with a user-friendly interface, stunning display, impressive battery life, user-friendly features, and robust gaming capabilities making it a standout in the budget smartphone category. It proves that a premium experience can be offered at an affordable price. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to consider the compromises that come hand-in-hand with the budget-friendly price tag. The device’s performance is best suited for basic tasks, and its camera system, while functional, lacks versatility and quality.
