System Performance: Compared to Cubot X16, X17 has improved RAM storage with additional 1GB, phone’s metal body design and glass-fibre screen. Overall the phone operates smoothly with no lag during our daily usage test. We also test processor speed among HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S5 and Cubot X17, and found that X17 runs the fastest. Also Multitask among different apps are very fast without lags (such as GPS).
Design: X17 has highly sleek and modern design so makes touches very solid in hand.
Screen: X17 has highly sharp screen. Sound quality seems needs to be improved since its speaker may provides a bit lower voice when calling. This may also become a trouble when using music player.
Connectivity: We feels the internet connection in 4G or WiFi is quicker than similar smartphone with same price level. It works well when using some network like O2, or Vodafone. Its voice dialling can even run in 3G areas while some latest Samsung can’t do.
Camera: The camera is great for its price level. The front one is 16MP IP with Dual Flash and Dual ISP Image chips; and the back one is 8MP with wide angle. Phones also with very good cameras (at least 8MP+13MP), such as Samsung, are maybe three or four times more expensive than the Cubot X17.
Storage: CUBOT X17 model has adequate storage(16GB) so would not let your phone running out of space when including many Google apps updates. You could also put more SD card to expand memory like 64GB.
Battery: Overall the battery quality is good. Screen usage accounts for the majority of unites power, and around 40% when in lowest brightness model. X17 can be used throughout the day for normal usage with no recharging.
Other things needs to be improved: The keyboard can not type letters with a little roof on some letters, which may effect some local language. The phone can not run a few media apps like NowTV or Sky Go.
