We have recently written about the Cubot smartphone, which is not as popular as the Xiaomi-like brand, but worth checking out. Today in this article, we are going to take a closer look at the Cubot Rainbow 2 smartphone.

Cubot Rainbow 2 Packaging

This Cubot Rainbow 2 smartphone comes in excellent packaging. On the top of the box, there is CUBOT branding in silver color. The box packaging is superb and made up of high-quality cardboard.

It is very good to have such additional accessories along with the box. Even if the phone is manufactured in China; you will get a user manual in English. That is a superb option for the International user.[If you read the user manual 🙂 ]

Cubot Rainbow 2 with lookWhen you open the box, you will see a headset, a USB charger (EU), and a cable (USB and micro USB). The device we got has a screen glass protector applied on the screen along with a back cover on this device. The cable is around 1m long and made of very good material.

Cubot Rainbow 2 Design

When creating a cheap smartphone, the manufacturer mostly ignores the appearance of the device. Fortunately for this device, it does not happen. Rainbow 2 device comes with a very stylish look that can be seen on the device. The corner of the device is rounded for better ergonomics, so you will not have to face any issues when you hold it for a longer period.

Cubot Rainbow 2 Side ViewThis Cubot Rainbow 2 smartphone comes with a 5-inch IPS display. Screen resolution is only HD(1280 x 720 px), but when we view it or look at it, there is a satisfactory viewing experience, but not as compared to other full HD models. This device does not have capacitive buttons on the screen, you can find them below the screen, but not having a backlight.

The back cover is removable and made up of plastic material. The back cover is very smooth and doesn’t leave our fingerprint on the back. It does not make bulky and slim too. There are up to 5 color variants available for this device; we have a black variant.

Camera performance is not as we have expected, so if you are planning to buy this phone for photography, honestly it is not the right choice for you. If we talk about hardware, this smartphone comes with a MediaTek MTK 6580 quad-core CPU running at 1.3GHz. This device is OTG-supported & comes with 1GB RAM. Nowadays people love to have more GB RAM phones, so 1GB is quite less as compared to other latest smartphones.

If we look at the specifications of Cubot Rainbow 2 smartphones, we will understand where the company has saved to come up with a cheap phone. It’s a cheap smartphone with the latest OS installed in it with a low price tag. The camera result is not good enough but if we compare it with a price tag, dual camera, and the latest OS installed in it, we might think twice before thinking about another phone.
