Cubot X17 Review: UNBOXING

The phone comes with a charging brick and USB cable, SIM ejector pin, instruction manuals, screen protector and a a nice soft plastic case, which is always a nice addition to have.

Cubot X17 Review: DESIGN

As far as design, we are looking at a very thin device as its thickness measures at just 6.1mm. The Cubot X17 has a nice metal frame and it is a compact phone due to its 5” display.
As far as battery life, 2500mAh unit is not really impressive but it’s not terrible either given the 5” 1080p display. I could get just over 3 hours of screen-on time on average use. You may get around 4 hours if you reduce the brightness significantly.

Cubot X17 Review: CONCLUSIONS

If you are looking for a phone that it is very slim, has a decent design and good build quality, Cubot X17 is a decent choice. Also, this phone is compact and the 5” display is pretty good, and the UI performance is great.
However, you have to keep in mind that the loudspeaker is not really impressive, image as well as video quality could see a some improvements, and the battery life is not that great due to a slim profile of the device.
All in all, Cubot X17 is a beautifully crafted and super slim phone with good day to day performance but you have to consider some shortcomings as on any other phone.
