MediaTek’s MT6735-series of chipsets aren’t just cost-efficient, but also very power-efficient. Taking advantage of that, a lot of makers build phones around the SoC with large batteries to have a pronounced effect.

Cubot’s H2 is one such phone. The device has a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720p display, a MediaTek MT6735A 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board ROM.

Full spec list of the Cubot H2 includes besides the above mentioned a 13 mega-pixel camera on the rear (software interpolated to 16 mega-pixel), 5 mega-pixel camera on the front (software interpolated to 8 mega-pixel) and most importantly, a 5000mAh battery. All in a 9.1mm thick chassis (with overall dimensions of 149.9 x 76.5 x 9.1mm.

Network support on this dual SIM phone includes bands 850/900/1800/1900 on GSM, 900/2100 on WCDMA and B1/B3/B7/B20 on FDD-LTE.

The Cubot H2 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and is expected to go on sale in the coming weeks. Does it stand a chance against other big battery phones that have shown up in the recent past?

    F*#%@ just bought the h1(has a 5200mah) for a friend too.. i can personally tell you the h1’s battery can give 8-9hrs SOT i dont expect anyless from the h2, the camera is not good though, the leagoo elite 5 is still the best camera in the 150$ and below price range

    • Muhammad Yasir

      but now the redmi note 2 retails for less than $150 … so i guess that beats the Elite 5 , right ?

      • Assefa Hanson

        redmi note 2 is better in everything over the elite 5, the elite 5 is poorly built with dying screens and lots of hardware issues terrible phone imo, only has the camera going for it which is stunning still bad phone overall to me

        • Muhammad Yasir

          i see

    • MattD

      If i may add, now gionee e7 is in tge 150$ price range now, and I think it’s better than everything else in camera department!

      However i checked some reviews about the leagoo elite 5: not a single one of them speaks that good about the camera, but samples look very good to me! If it had a better audio, I’d have thought about the chance to get one!

      • Assefa Hanson

        i shall check out the gionee e 7 IMMEDIATELY!!!

        • MattD

          It’s a nice overall phone, if you can get past the “no sw upgrade whatsoever” 😁

          • Assefa Hanson

            i did check on its its camera is really nice

      • Jeremy Render

        Do you know of Leagoo Shark 1?

        • MattD

          Yes, it seems not that good after all (saw a review a couple of days back)

          • Assefa Hanson

            where?

            • MattD

              Italian gizchina!

          • Jeremy Render

            Okay thank you for the information! I was opting to buy one. I thought it was good.

  • jimberkas

    good god, gold phones look like crap

    • balcobomber25

      I actually like them lol. Mostly because I am so sick of Silver and White. I want to see more color variety like the Blue and Pink that Sony is using (too bad their phones are terrible and expensive). I wish more phones would adopt a Moto Maker style where you can order it any color you want.

    • Assefa Hanson

      look at the latest mi5 it has a pale gold look, is it ugly to you?

  • Muhammad Yasir

    poor choice of hardware :/

    • balcobomber25

      Excellent choice of hardware for what they are trying to go for here. This is a phone that is designed around one thing: battery life. A 720p + 6735A + 5000mAh means theoretically you should be able to get a few days of battery life out of this.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        yeah … but i guess not enough for power users ?

        • balcobomber25

          Power users shouldn’t be looking at $150 phones to begin with.

          • Muhammad Yasir

            but i dont have $200 to blow on phones 🙁

            • balcobomber25

              You’re the exception!

            • Muhammad Yasir

              😀

    • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

      Ulefone Power is a better choice if you want a battery monster phone, but still with a capable cpu.

  • Brooklyn701

    I think the HW is okay considering price and that the main feature is the battery. The problem I have is that I’d like to have dual SIM and TF card at the same time. But I guess that wouldn’t work on the H2

    • Assefa Hanson

      you sure about this i know th h1 has 2 sims and tf card at the same time, is this h2 unibody? or does it say somewhere its a hybrid

  • Steven Fox

    3Gigs of RAM on a entry level chip and a price tag higher than Redmi 3 Prime?
    Don`t know why anyone would bother to be honest, but we have to have diversity, and at least Cubot`s recent modesl have very good built quality and above average cameras.

    • balcobomber25

      I love Xixomi but they are not for everyone and someone who wants a big battery phone and doesn’t care much about the SoC (most consumers are clueless about SoC’s) they could do worse than this.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        but i care about SoC and RN3 pro is the best offering atm for the range !

        • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

          dude…you’re not a regular user. 😉

          • Muhammad Yasir

            of?

            • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

              Speaking generally, you know things about the phones that the regular users didn’t ever heard.

    • Assefa Hanson

      not gonna lie its not better over rn3 pro for the price, the only reason to get this if you dont like miui or want a removbale big battery, cubot ram managment is usually good too the h1 comes with 75% ram free so id bet the h2 would have 2.5 gb ram free or more.. which can be viewed as good or bad by some

  • Mario Pruteanu

    Hey fellow gizchiners, I’m selling a phone with 8gb of ddr9 ram with 256gb of storage, a 23 mpx cam with ois and laser auto focus, and of course what better to go with it then a snapdragon 820 and a 11k samsung 6 inch screen, all for the mere price of 150 dollars, only downside is that there is no software and payment only by moneygram or parcel payment. Such a good deal that mostly likely all of my specs are real! Get one buy one free toooooooo!!!!!!

    • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

      Give it to me! Now!! :)) 😀

  • Xbot Seven

    and whats the REAL weight?
