As we continue our rubric of the cheapest way to buy smartphones, next in our lineup is the CUBOT ZORRO 001. Indeed, it is not very well-known Chinese manufacturer, but it is quite an interesting offering for a budget-friendly category of devices.
This device packs quite plain and simple design, which does not stand out from the crowd too much, yet looks great. There is a speaker on the front along with the front facing shooter, which has 2mp. Also, there are nicely lit three capacitive buttons on the bottom. All of this sits around a good looking and sharp 854 x 480 (WVGA) screen, which has a size of 4.5 inches.
If we take a look at the back, it is made of plastic. There is a 5mp camera with a single LED flash. Also, there is a BLUBOO logo along with the mono speaker on the bottom.
As far as specs go, the device has a MTK6582 chip, which is Quad Core and clocked at 1.3GHz. Also, Mali-400 MP helps handling the graphic tasks. In addition, there is 1 GB of Ram and 4 GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via Micro SD slot up to 32 gigs. What is more, it has a wifi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS and other connectivity. On top of that it has a 4G network support (FDD-LTE 800/1800/2100/2600MHz). All of this is is run by Android 4.4 Kitkat and the device is powered by 1900mAh battery, which is should be enough considering the screen size of 4.5 inches and only a 854 x 480 resolution.
We summarise some of the main features of the device:
Gravity/Proximity Sensing System
FM/MP3/MP4/Bluetooth/GPS Function Supported
Note: This phone will only work with GSM+WCDMA+FDD-LTE networks: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz WCDMA 850/2100MHz FDD-LTE 1800/2600MHz
With the price of $125.21 it looks to be a great offer. But what is more important, you can get BLUBOO X4 for as low as $101.00 from Gearbest as GizmoChina offers a BLUBOOCN coupon code, which is for a discounted price.
