CUBOT company released a very popular mobile phone in March 2018: CUBOT X18 Plus. We have a detailed review of it. Two months later, its upgraded version is here CUBOT Power, which is more powerful. I have a blue prototype of CUBOT Power. It’s very beautiful.
Parameter comparison: CUBOT X18 Plus VS CUBOT Power
|CUBOT X18 Plus||CUBOT Power|
|Display||5.99″ 2160x1080px||5.99″ 2160x1080px|
|CPU||MT6750T, 1.5GHz||MT6763T, 2.5GHz|
|OS||Android 8.0||Android 8.1|
From the above comparison, we can see that CUBOT Power surpasses CUBOT X18 Plus in terms of hardware. In particular, the 6000mA large battery improved a lot in terms of battery life. the following, I will take a detailed review of CUBOT Power in the following areas, showing whether CUBOT Power is worth of buying.
The high power and lower power consumption
CUBOT Power is using MediaTek’s star processor, the famous MT6763T. It is the highest version of the Helio P23 series, where “T” looks like a “turbocharger” in a car engine and is synonymous with performance.
MT6763T is an octa core A53 processor with a maximum master frequency of 2.5GHz, 16nm process. The network standard supports Cat.7 full Netcom.
In order to prove the capabilities of this processor, firstly I installed Antutu to take a test. The scores were 94211. This is a good result, so we can say the performance of MT6763T is equivalent to Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, which is a bit stronger than Snapdragon 625.
6GB RAM plus 128GB of internal storage
In the past, CUBOT’s mobile phones used 3GB, 4GB of RAM.This time , it’s 6GB which made me have more confidence in the performance of CUBOT Power. Because 6GB of RAM will support multi tasks running more smoothly. What is more surprising is CUBOT Power has 128GB of the internal storage on the board. you can throw your expansive card away.
5.99″ FHD+ 18:9 2160x1080px
This is a high-quality, 5.99-inch 18:9 screen with a resolution of 2160*1080, 403 PPI.
As we can see, the screen has a rounded design around it, which makes the visual effect very harmonious. It is not as stiff as a square display.
The 18 : 9 screen is slimmer in appearance than the normal 16 : 9 screen. The advantage is that if this18:9 screen held in the hand, you could feel it like 5.5 inch. the large screen phone also has a good grip feeling.
20.0MP on the rear with 6P Lens
The rear camera is 20MP Samsung camera with 6P lens. What are the advantages of 6P lens?
Firstly, the ability to collect light is strong, which can enhance the resolution and contrast of the lens. Second, it improves glare in the dark state.
Here, I took some pictures with Cubot Power and asked us to comment:

Native Android 8.1 without any pre installed ads
Personally, I like the original system. For so many years, CUBOT has insisted that their mobile phones are without advertising apps and with the original Google Android system. This is why I like CUBOT. CUBOT has given up a lot of advertising revenue for this reason.
Cubot Power pre-installed the latest Android 8.1 system, and after the startup, I did not find any advertising APP. The pure interface makes people feel happy. If you want to install your favorite Android apps, you can download from the Google Store.
6000mAh will support standby time for two days
Before talking about the battery, let’s take a look at the battery comparisons of the following major brand’s flagship models:
- Xiaomi Mi 8: 3400mAh
- OnePlus 6: 3300mAh
- Samsung S9+: 3500mAh
- Huawei P20 Pro: 4000mAh
- Cubot Power: 6000mAh
Now, In the case of excess performance of mobile phones, battery life is particularly important. I took CUBOT Power and was able to use it for two days with full power (browse the web, watch the video, call, drive the car use GPS, listen to music).
