Cubot Dinosaur: design and processing

By design, the Cubot Dinosaur again has little to offer. It is neither good nor ergonomically with one hand to operate. It is 152.3 x 77.2 x 8.8 mm too large for a hand. Although see the metal edges from not bad, but do not fulfill any function.

The focus of the 202-gram Cubot Dinosaur is so not ergonomic in the plastic housing that the smartphone can be kept really uncomfortable. Overall, the handling of the product by poor ergonomics is unpleasant. And as the simple-minded design has the not counter, the Dinosaur in this section can not score really.

Cubot Dinosaur: Display

The 5.5-inch IPS display has 1,280 pixels with 267 ppi in 720 x. For games and movies. Extends the Who is looking for a pierced, high-contrast image, but must look elsewhere. In everyday life, but the display fell on not unpleasant; it's perfectly fine for the price.

Cubot Dinosaur: Features

The Cubot Dinosaur is a dual SIM device with LTE support - the latter also applies to the much used in Germany LTE band 20. The battery is interchangeable, which is now considered as a special feature. During the test, we were able to format microSD card as internal memory. It supports up to 32 GB cards; in the test we were able to use a 64-gigabyte card.

Cubot Dinosaur: Software

On the Cubot Dinosaur runs Android marshmallow. However Cubot enriched the software with little extras to the basic user interface leaves the standard design. In the test, the software proves to be quite fast and stable. The number of pre-installed apps is tolerable, especially as can be apart from the Google Apps your metals irish all apps.

Cubot Dinosaur: Performance

The performance of the Cubot Dinosaur is not outstanding, but certainly adequate for the price. The built-in quad-core processor MediaTek MT6735A brand clocked at 1.3 GHz. 3 GB of RAM help you multitask. The internal memory of 16 GB you will want to expand but at an early stage with a MicroSD.

In the test the Cubot Dinosaur unfortunately crashed when playing videos and otherwise I had little trouble with the Stabiität. the manufacturer may resolve the problem with a software update.

The LTE support is optimal for Europe: 1/3/7/20 bands are supported. Thus you have in Germany, anywhere access on the 4G network provider, if available.

In benchmarks, the Cubot Dinosaur is not convincing. Even two years older, middle-class smartphones perform better in the synthetic tests in some cases.

Cubot Dinosaur: Camera

The cameras of Cubot Dinosaur enough for snapshots and video evidence, but do not provide really good results. Back you have a 13-megapixel notches with f / 2.0 and a simple LED flash. Front you have a 5-megapixel camera with f / 2,8er opening.

While real-time HDR can easily increase the contrast range, the other software features are not very useful. The beauty mode of selfie cam produces nothing but blur on skin tones.

The main camera focuses too late indoors or not at all. Details will be lost. Outdoors, the contrast range is too low. Bright areas burn out or dark drink from the mark.

Cubot Dinosaur: Battery

The replaceable battery of Cubot Dinosaur set with 4150 mAh about one-third more energy than the average smartphone battery. In the field test, the battery was still just large enough. After eight hours of work, videos and games the Cubot Dinosaur had to be recharged. That's less than one expects from such a large battery and so weak hardware.

final verdict

The Cubot Dinosaur is reasonably well for its price. If you are simply just looking for a cheap smartphone, and places no value on design, performance, or camera, you can confidently strike. Then it might be for you, even the best smartphone for under 100 euros.

As alternatives only devices come in question, which are more expensive to 30 euros or more. Here is particularly Moto G 2015, which shoots much better pictures and does not require the Cheetah mobile. but the much better alternative would be the Honor 5X.
