A unit with cameras and a flash go beyond the edges of the case, but the bumper solves this problem.

It is worth noting that the phone is quite weighty, its weight is 235 grams.

The phone does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack and a fingerprint scanner. Below are the Type-C port and speaker holes. Despite the fact that there are two sections of holes - the speaker is one, not stereo.

The phone can work with two SIM cards of the Nano-SIM format or one SIM card and a memory card.

The Cubot X20 Pro has a 6.3-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2340x1080 and this is one of its main advantages. It is simply chic - bright, with large viewing angles and natural colour display, without any shade. Compared with the display of the smartphone Xiaomi Mi Max 3 - this one wins.

General information and features

The smartphone runs on Android 9.0. Pleased with the lack of any Chinese and other unnecessary.

Cubot X20 Pro Review:

Of the 128GB of internal memory, about 116GB is available to the user.

There are no touch buttons, there are only virtual buttons that can be minimized (and called with a swipe if necessary) to increase the working area of ​​the screen.

Multi-touch supports up to 5 touches.

GPS works well, picks up satellites quickly.

The quality of music playback from the polyphonic speaker is completely normal and not at all impressive, it wheezes at maximum volume.

The face unlocks function (face recognition) works well even in complete darkness, there are times when you need to re-enable recognition, but they are extremely rare.

You can see the unlock function by face in the video review, starting at 3:15.

The eight-core MediaTek Helio P60 processor and 6GB of RAM are responsible for the performance. The performance was tested in the following games: Asphalt 9, Forgotten Memories, The Sun Origin, - everything flies at maximum speed, there is not even a hint of jamming. Asphalt 9 at high graphics settings is going very well, there are no micro freezes. The graphics are much better than on the Asus Zenfone 4.
You can watch the gameplay and playability in the video review, starting at 1:40.

During the game, the smartphone heats up, but within normal limits, it is absolutely comfortable to hold in your hands.

Camera

The smartphone has three main cameras and one front. When shooting with the main cameras, it is possible to turn on wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle lenses (for shooting with this viewing angle, you need to turn off the intelligent and HDR modes; with this shooting, autofocus is not available and the photo will be saved in 8mp resolution). When shooting with a normal viewing angle, the resolution of the photos is 12mp. 

Cubot X20 Pro Review:

When shooting with the front camera, it is possible to adjust the aperture (degree of background blur).

There is a “PRO” mode (shooting is possible only in a standard viewing angle), in which you can manually set parameters such as white balance, ISO (100-1600) and exposure.

There are also other modes, such as creating GIF animations, panorama, slow motion, black and white photography, using various filters, and so on.

The maximum video resolution of the main camera is FullHD, and the front - 720P.

Cubot X20 Pro Review:

After the camera is inactive for two minutes, the power saving mode will turn on (to return the camera you need to tap on the screen once).

As for the settings and camera modes - I expected more, at least from the “PRO” mode (that there will be the opportunity to manually set the shutter speed, focus and that at the same time it will be possible to shoot with a wide-angle lens in RAW). I also thought that the minimum video resolution would be 4K (at least without stabilization). You can shoot video only with an ordinary lens, you cannot use wide-angle.

Regarding the quality of the photos - I liked the bokeh mode the most (portrait mode when the background blurs well), to my surprise, it works very well and blurs the background naturally. The rest I note too much sharpening in the photo. HDR mode draws well but is often unnatural. When shooting in wide-angle lens mode, the photos are noticeably blurry on the sides.

The smartphone is equipped with a 4000mAh battery, which lasts for two days of active use. With moderate use, it will last longer.

When watching a video on Youtube at maximum volume and display brightness, the battery ran out from 98% to 88% (10%) in 32 minutes. Here is a chronology of how it was discharged:

Summary

The Cubot X20 Pro smartphone turned out to be interesting and ambiguous at the same time: a stylish design, a chic display, 128GB of internal memory, excellent performance, great autonomy and at the same time the lack of a headphone jack and fingerprint scanner, as well as the controversial quality of the camera. However, if the quality of the photos suits you and does not bother you with the lack of a connector and a scanner, then this is a great option.
