5.0 out of 5 stars Cubot X17 review, 14 Dec. 2015
I've had my Cubot X17 for over a week now and I am very impressed. I initially was looking for a smartphone with a decent amount of storage as my previous smartphone was running out of space with all the constant google updates to android. I decided that a 16gb model would be best and a surveyed all the cheaper smartphones on Amazon. I noted that the reviews for Cubot were generally very positive and after viewing several YouTube videos I decided to get a Cubot X17. The X17 is basically a X16 with an extra 1gb of ram which should improve performance and metal body rather than the glass-fibre of the X16. I liked the idea of the metal body. I should at this point say that I ordered the phone direct from Cubot on eBay and saved a few pounds. The phone took about 7 days to arrive and came with a UK charger.
The phone itself is very sleek and modern and feels very solid in the hand. in use everything is fast with no lag, screen is very sharp. I am particularly impressed with the WiFi which is decidedly quicker than previous phones, I think it uses the 5g band as well as the 2.4g. The data is great as well and I get 4G reception at home, although I have not run any speed tests on the 4G as I am on PAYG.. Camera seems good although no doubt if I paid 5 times as much for a Galaxy S6 or iPhone the camera would probably be better.
I have been trying to think of any bad points to raise- and I am struggling - if I am particularly picky I think I would mention that the phone comes with a protective plastic back cover. I have left it on to protect the phone. However this plastic has a slightly sharp edge to it which I dislike the feel of.. I thought of taking a bit of sandpaper to it but decided to buy a £3 gel cover for the phone instead.
All in all I am very pleased with the Cubot X17 and I think for the money it a great deal ,a strong recommend.

Excellent quality bulbs, nice and bright with instant on. Also I had a problem in that I made a mistake on the order- Powersave were exceptionally good and replaced the order promptly , so customer service from Powersave gets a 5 star mark as well.

Just bought to replace Sansung F1 which was telling me it was about to fail. Impressed by this drive seems quick and very quiet. No problems at all.
