Cubix Cube Lite review

After playing on this 3rd smartphone from this online brand, I already have the verdict on the quad-core powered Cubix Cube Lite

You'll be greeted by this UI which you'll gonna see in the screenshots below. It almost has near stock Android Lollipop to it which is what I like. There were a number of pre-loaded apps which are quite ok like Cherry Mobile apps including the e-warranty and Lazada app (which you can only buy this exlcusive at the said e-commerce destination). Overall navigation is a-ok for the price and the processor inside which is 1.3 GHz Speadtrum SC7731 quad-core.




The form factor reminds me of a hybrid of some One Plus devices and Xperia so you really have to take care of the flap covers for the dual micro SIM tray and micro SD slot. +1 for this device as it is one of the lightest 5 inch Android that I handled so far.

I got no issues on overall tests for SMS and calls. On SMS, there are some instances that you have to set in WCDMA only in my usual area if I really need 3G speeds for mobile data. WiFi reception is also ok. Putting a 3rd party keyboard is also not a problem.



I also love the appaerance of the pulldown menu and app drawer




Out of 8 GB ROM, it has around 4.44 GB of app storage which is pretty good for my standards.


On benchmarks, it scored almost 19,000 on Antutu, has 5 point multi touch and has also a pretty good amount of sensors. The internal storage was supplied from Kingston.






 Both 8 and 5 MP cameras can shoot on 4:3 aspect ratio. On video, the main sensor can shoot FHD video while it's 480p for the selfie camera.




 And the camera samples which I really chose at low light. Turst me, both cameras are alirght on normal lighting. Both cameras have f/2.8 aperture and it has around 2 seconds of image processing. The phone has default Google camera inside.




On gaming, expect that you can't use this device on heavy games properly but you can rely on those light games including Clash of Clans and Philippine Slam.

On battery video rundown test, I got around 8 hours and 56 minutes of looping HD videos out of 2,500 mAh battery on battery saving mode. It can be a little better for me if to compared to the old school MT6582 quad-core and 1.4 GHz variant of MT6592 octa-core processors. Safe to say that I can max out this device for a whole day. 

Extras: I love that there's no need to reset if you are about to hot swap the SIM cards and micro SD. On temperature, it can be on heat sometimes but I only got this warning once in my 2 weeks of playing this device. Charging time can be at around 3 to 3.5 hours. 


Pros: Lightweight, nice form factor, hot swappable micro SD and SIM cards, good display, near stock Android Lollipop
Cons: No OTG support, battery can be a little better.

I handled a number of SC7731-powered smartphones so far and the Cubix Cube Lite is probably one of the best picks if you want a quad-core phone for under 3K. This is also the best smartphone from Cubix brand that I handled so far in terms of price to overall performance ratio. I'll gonna give 4.25 out of 5. It's better if you'll gonna order a Cubix Cube Lite thru this link
