Reviews for the Cubot Tab 40

75% Cubot Tab 40 review: budget tablet for undemanding users
Source: Root Nation English
It is better to give the final assessment of Cubot Tab 40 tablet “from the opposite” – starting with what it is not. This is not a tablet for gaming – its “hardware” frankly lacks power for this. Also, it is not a device that is suitable for intensive use on the go, as the display lacks brightness, and the tablet’s autonomy lags behind. The Tab 40 is most comfortable to use at home for watching videos or Internet pages, social networks, e-mail, and video calls with loved ones who are not close by. For tasks when the smartphone screen is small, but for which you don’t want to go to the computer and switch it on. Cubot Tab 40 can be a good gift for elderly parents or for small children. A gift for which you will not be ashamed, especially taking into account the good cover in the package, which is increasingly rare when buying smartphones and tablets.

This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
