Every now and then I like to see what else is out there. This often includes looking at items that are not available in the retail market in the UK, and only available here online. The CUBOT s308 HD 3G Phablet is one such device. I mostly found it interesting because it looks really thin, though the name Phablet probably doesn’t do it much justice, as the screen is only 5″. It isn’t bad though mind, with HD IPS OGS technology. It is only 720p though, in case you were wondering.
What makes this look really good though, is that it is only 8mm thick, with a leather print back cover, helping it look both classy and giving it a non-slip grip.
Special emphasis here is on the camera. The 13MP rear camera is paired with an 8MP front camera, so you can take those selfies.
It goes up to 3G, but best of all, as far as budget phones go, it packs in quite a punch.
