Cubot R11

The Cubot R11 is yet another Chinese entry-level smartphone with some sleek specs such as the 18:9 aspect ratio and the latest Android 8.1 Oreo OS. It is a budget smartphone aimed at entry-level users. This gives it some much-needed security updates and means that the lower powered hardware will be more optimized. The Cubot has left the OS bloatware- and customization-free, with only the typical array of Google Apps pre-installed. The curvy edges of the full phone and the curvy edges of the display are attractive to one’s eyes. The top bezel has a minimal bezel that contains not only the front camera but also the earpiece and ambient light sensor. Although the bottom bezel has some occupants, the sides are bezel-less. At the rear, the smartphone’s dual camera are arranged vertically with a LED flash separating the two cameras while a fingerprint sensor lies beside the camera setup. Taking up the bottom portion of the rear is the Cubot logo. The dimensions are 150.33 x 71.4 x 8.85 mm thickness. With plastic body material, the smartphone has black, grey, and blue color options. Taking a look at the display, users are getting 1,440 × 720 pixels in an 18:9 aspect ratio. This resolution is typical for devices at this price. The screen’s sharpness is handled by both the resolution and the 293 PPI. For a 5.5-inch budget display, this is just about acceptable and a user shouldn’t see too many jagged edges. For hardware specifications, a MediaTek MT6580 chipset stays at the center of the device. The chipset envelops a 32-bit ARM Cortex-A7 CPU that clocks at 1.3 GHz speed. This processor adopts the 28 mm process technology. The graphics region on the smartphone has the ARM Mali-400 MP2 GPU at its core. The RAM controlling the multitasking functions on the smartphone has a 2 GB capacity. The smartphone’s 16 GB internal storage stores up files and documents. This ROM can be expanded to 32 GB using a MicroSD card. The front camera of the smartphone has a 5-megapixel sensor that handles the snapping of selfies. The 5-megapixel sensor can interpolate to 8 MP. On the other hand, the rear camera has an 8 MP primary sensor that can interpolate to 13 MP, and a 72 MP sub-snapper. Giving brightness in low light conditions is the single-LED flash. Features such as the f/2.4 aperture, 5P lens, HDR, panorama and face detection are available at the camera’s disposal. The smartphone’s powerhouse is a removable Li-Poly 2,800 mAh battery. Removable batteries are not commonly seen nowadays and it is an advantage for users because a user can replace the battery themselves. The Cubot R11 does not support LTE, but it does support all the necessary GSM and UMTS frequencies for using mobile data networks. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam
