The phone comes with a charging brick and USB cable, SIM ejector pin, instruction manuals, screen protector and a a nice soft plastic case, which is always a nice addition to have.
Cubot X17 Review: DESIGN
As far as design, we are looking at a very thin device as its thickness measures at just 6.1mm. The Cubot X17 has a nice metal frame and it is a compact phone due to its 5” display.
Besides the usual stuff you would expect, on the front there is LED light, 8MP shooter for selfies and 3 capacitive buttons, which are, however, not backlit.
The back is made of metal expect for the top and bottom parts, which sport plastic material. As far as optics, we have a 13MP snapper, which is interpolated to 16MP and it is supplemented with a dual LED flash.
On the bottom, there is a speaker grill.
On the right, there is a conveniently placed and tactile volume rocker and a power key, on the left there is a SIM card tray, which can take either 2 SIM cards or a combo of 1 SIM card and the microSD card.
On the top we have a headset jack and on the bottom there is a micro USB port.
Overall, the phone feels solid, it is well build and it uses some quality materials in its construction.
