Cubot release their thinnest phone ever

cubot s208 thin

The Cubot S208, is now on sale. The phone, touted as the “thinnest Cubot ever” measures 7.99mm, but at what cost?

Cubot are one of those brands who start the year shouting about their newest devices, and quickly run out of steam towards the end. Suffice to say it has been a while since we last head anything from them until the international release of the Cubot S208.

To get their phones in to as many pockets around the world as possible, Cubot have teamed up with international resellers such as GearBest where the S208 can be had for just $132.46.

The sub $150 phone market is hotting up at the moment so does the “thinnest Cubot ever” have what it takes. Well the price is right, as is the quad-core MT6582 processor, 3G support, dual-sim, 5-inch display, 1GB RAM, 8 mega-pixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front. There are a few hiccoughs along the road though, for example the phone is running on Android 4.2 still and the display is a 960 x 540 unit, but for the money there are very few phones that are better equipped.

    I just received Doogee DG550 to be reviewed and I believe it has a lot more to offer for just a bit more expensive price.

    you have to be very careful with this phone. it is indeed really thin, but with a cost, it is very fragile. since company that i work for sells this(for about 2 months) we got a few broken phones(the screens) in the same way just by siting with the phone in the front pocket. as far as the battery you may have a surprise and not a good one as out from the box it can only last 6 to 8 hours (normal use) but it can easily be fixed by installing and running the “Advanced battery calibrator” from play store (up to more than a day).apart from this it is really reliable phone, with a good price/quality relation, but i could recommend the inew v3 or the doogee 2014 more than this (not much of a price difference and higher quality)
