Compared to those brands that use made huge profits from cameras, which is a mean of premium, CUBOT insists that a camera phone is only a tool for recording life. 

That’s why X20 Pro is still budget-friendly even with so many improvements.

Now, let’s focus on some sample photos of the CUBOT X20 Pro.

In an environment with extremely low light, it is even impossible for an ordinary mobile phone to capture clear photos for an object.

However, it’s not the case with CUBOT X20 Pro, because it uses the AI algorithm to stack multiple frames, presenting the brightness and darkness of the night to synthesize long-exposure photos. 

In short, it allows you to record beautiful images in the dark.

3. Front camera

The front camera of CUBOT X20 Pro can capture abundant details.

Through the AI algorithm and beauty mode, you can improve the look of the face without distorting it and retain the details.

The official claims that its standby time can reach 347 hours. Let’s know more about its battery life through a series of tests.

1. Playing online videos

Open YouTube.

20% volume, 50% brightness. Start playing 1080P videos with 97% battery. After 1 hour and 42 minutes, the smartphone has 78% power left.

Theoretically, the X20 Pro can play online videos for over 9 hours in a row for a full charge.

2. Playing games

We use a game to test the battery life of the X20 Pro, with the highest picture quality and frame rate settings. Start from 99% charged.

After 2 hours, the remaining battery percentage is 59%. 40% of the electricity is consumed. Accordingly, in the same condition, an X20 Pro user can play for 4 to 5 hours.

3. Charging

We start charging Cubot X20 Pro from 5% with screen off after power-up. It takes 90 minutes to get 95% charged. So, with regard to the large battery capacity, this charging speed is still quite excellent.

Experience

CUBOT X20 Pro is equipped with the latest Android 9.0, which is an ad-free system, with a simple and clean interface. So there won’t be any annoying ads that affect the user experience, and fluency is exceptionally high. Moreover, the interaction is simpler and more thoughtful. Trust me, and you will be surprised after you get the phone.
