Amazing! I Got CUBOT MAX 2 4G Phablet, A High-quality Phone Under $150

Not long ago, I was looking to find a replacement for my daily driver, a Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime that had served me faithfully well until it broke down during a workplace accident. I was only looking for a replacement phone until things got better and I could afford a high-end flagship.

I was talking about this with a friend, and he suggested me to look at rugged phones since they are more suitable for my line of work.


Insanely Low Budget:

With a budget of only $150, I set out to buy a phone that could take endless hours of punishment and somehow still keep working at the end of the day. I was well aware of my budget constraints and wasn’t looking for much. 

At the store, I went through numerous different rugged phones manufacturers and was about to choose one when the words MAX 2 came into my view.


Premium Packaging:

The Golden text engraved on an all-black box presented a striking view, and I was very tempted to take a closer look at it. Upon enquiring, I found out that the phone was from a renowned rugged phones manufacturer, known as CUBOT. 

I quickly whipped out my wife’s smartphone from her purse and looked at CUBOT’s reviews online. The company and the product both looked promising, and I decided to go for it. The phone only cost 140 bucks, and I was able to pocket the remainder sum of $10.      

To be honest, I wasn’t expecting a great phone, but what I got was certainly worth every penny and a bit more. I know how low-end Chinese smartphone brands often tend to shy away from a good and neat packaging of their products. 

However, I was surprised to see the phone, a proper manual, and other accessories, all arranged neatly in different sections. This came as a surprise, and I started to anticipate what else CUBOT had in store for me.


Slim and Eye-catching Design:

I have seen my fair share of rugged phones, and Max 2 didn’t look like one. I even started to wonder whether the sales guy had made a mistake by telling me that this was a rugged phone. 

The color shift at the back casing was very prominent, and there was even a fingerprint sensor at the back. I later tested the sensor to find that it was very responsive and at-par with my J7’s fingerprint sensor.


Amazing Display:

The phone’s screen is a whopping 6.8 inches, which makes sense when you look at the packaging that says “CUBOT Max 2 4G Phablet’’. The display is very good, and it didn’t drain the battery as I had thought it would.


Capable Camera:

The front camera is on the right side of the screen, and it felt a bit weird at first. Out of curiosity, I googled it to find that Max 2 is the world’s first smartphone with a right side waterdrop screen. 

In the time where everyone is mindlessly following the Apple notch, we have got to hand it to CUBOT, for coming up with something of their own. Besides, it feels good to be a part of the revolution, eh?

The rear, 12 MP+2 MP cameras also take clear and beautiful pictures and videos.   


Reliably Strong:

Although the phone is quite slim and comes packed with a variety of different features and impressive specifications, it is one of the most reliable rugged phones available. My Max2’s screen has been subjected to some rubbing and scratching at work, but the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5 seems unmoved by the punishment.


Stock Android:

The Max 2 also comes with the latest Android 9.0 Pie, which is a huge convenience as I can install the latest apps and software on it with ease. CUBOT’s decision to go with stock android is the cherry on top. The phone virtually has no bloatware and runs on the simplest Android OS.


Powerful SOC and Memory:

I am not much of a gaming fan, but my Max 2 has 4GB of RAM and an Octa-core processor, along with 64 GB of internal memory, which can be expanded up to 256 GB, if needed.


The Verdict:

What I like about this phone is its impressively thin yet strong build. I don’t know how CUBOT has succeeded in keeping this beast so thin, but whatever it is, I hope other rugged phone manufacturers take up the use of this technology too. My Max 2 experience does indeed prove that bulkiness doesn’t always translate to durability.
