Everyone loves the satisfaction of acquiring a great bargain and the Cubot X18 Plus that’s on special now on Gearbest looks like an enticing proposition as it serves up a large 5.99-inch FHD+ display and a rear dual camera array with very solid workhorse specs for US$129.99 (about RM507).
The Cubot X18 Plus normally retails for US$169.99 which is about RM664 though Gearbest is offering a unique sale that slashes the price down to the aforementioned US$129.99 for a limited time only until March 12. While there was an even earlier, more generous discount of US$79.99, it was, alas, limited only to ten units which have since been snapped up.
At first blush, the Cubox X18 Plus looks like quite a capable phone. For the price of entry, you’re getting a huge 5.99-inch, 2,160 x 1080 pixel display with an 18:9 aspect ratio framed with extremely thin wordpress bezels in a relatively thin 8.55mm machined metal casing that comes in your choice of either a metallic shade of black or blue. Fortunately, the phone also retains the ubiquitous 3.5mm audio jack for listening to wired headphones.
The phone also runs the latest Android Oreo 8.0 on a MediaTek MT6750T octacore processor, integrates 4GB RAM and has 64GB of expandable storage which is rather respectable as smartphones go.
On the imaging front, the Cubot X18 Plus sports a rather capable rear dual camera setup which has a primary 20-MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture and 5P lens paired up with a secondary 2-MP camera that delivers depth information for bokeh shots. Belying its size, the phone comes with a rather huge 4,000mAh battery that offers all-day endurance that tops many leading flagship phones For more details and to acquire this rather interesting bargain, swing by to Gearbest’s promotion page here.
