Cubot Cheetah

The front of the Cubot Cheetah is graced with a 5.5 inch screen.  The capacitive buttons are below the curved screen.  The front facing camera, the ear peace and a few sensors are above the screen.

On the back side, there is the company logo, a fingerprint sensor, LED flash and the 13MP camera.  The power and volume buttons are on the right hand side.  The SIM tray is on the left hand side. It doubles as a slot for a micro SD card.  The 3.5mm audio port is at the top of the device. The UB port is at the bottom.

This Cubot Cheetah feels good in the hands. However, it is quite slippery-a protective cover will help with this.

The Cubot Cheetah runs on Android 6.0(Marshmallow).  There is a custom-launcher on top. Useful apps such as CM security and Clean Master are integrated into the Cheetah.


The primary (back) camera on the Cubot Cheetah has a 13MP Samsung sensor with f/2.0 aperture.  Below the camera, there is a bright LED flash that will allows one to take clear photos in low light conditions.  The camera performs very well in well-lit areas.  This camera is at par with the cameras in phones in Cubot Cheetah’s price range.
