Cubot Note S: MediaTek MT6580 Quad-Core CPU, 2GB RAM, and 16GB of Storage

While taking a look around in Ali Express for any 20000mAh power bank, I spotted this Cubot Note S with MediaTek's quad-core chip. It is another line of 5.5-inch Chinese handset with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage. And the good thing about it, it is the cheapest Android smartphone with elegant metallic case and iPhone 6S like appearances.

Compared to Meizu Charm Blue Note 3, Elephone M2, and Ulefone Vienna, Cubot Note S offers a less than 32GB of eMMC storage. However, it is the cheapest Chinese brand among the other 5.5-inch handset. However, it is the only model with quad-core chips for a reasonable less than $100 price tag.

For other available speaks of Cubot Note S, see the following table below:

Furthermore, Cubot Note S has the same quad-core chip with the smaller and less powerful 5-inch Doogee X5 which is equipped with only 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. And prices for this model starts at about $80 and up. Other variants with 4GB RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage are also available.

And before I can forget, Note S is another dual-SIM enabled handset with less than $100 price. For now, I cannot compare this model with other 5-inch or much bigger handsets due to its underlying specs.
