He Cubot Note 50 It is an entry-level smartphone with features that seem more appropriate for a mid-range phone, so it exceeds the expectations that we normally have for a terminal of less than 200 euros. With that in mind, this Asian manufacturer may not be the best known in the world, but it has been in the game for many years and devices like the CUBOT NOTE 20 They are proof that it knows how to make good affordable phones.

The Cubot Note 50 in particular puts a 6.56-inch HD+ screen on the table and boasts 8GB of RAM (plus 8GB virtual) along with 256GB of internal storage. Likewise, it works with Android 13 in its purest form and enjoys long autonomy thanks to its 5,200mAh battery. We can also anticipate that it has a 50MP dual camera and NFC connectivity.

For what the Cubot Note 50 costs, it is definitely a solid proposal for those who want value for money, but we are still obliged to delve into its offer and expose the less positive aspects of it.

Design and screen

The Cubot Note 50 doesn’t win any awards for its looks, but there are certainly worse ones in this range. Objectively speaking, It has a modern style of which we can only criticize its completely plastic construction with a glossy finish back cover, which ends up capturing many fingerprints. In general, we find the square shape of its rear photographic module curious, although we are not convinced by the old-fashioned ‘notch’ that it looks on the front, and the same can be said about the thick lower bezel, but for the rest, everything is fine .

Another detail worthy of attention of this device is the fingerprint reader, It is conveniently located on the right side of the mobile device and does not share space with the power button. In case anyone is wondering, on the opposite edge is the SIM/MicroSD card tray and also the volume keys. In this order of ideas, at the bottom of the mobile there are the speaker holes and a USB-C port in the middle.

This is the part where we normally mention the location of the 3.5mm audio jack, but unfortunately this phone does not have one.

passing to your 6.56 inch screenit is a pleasant surprise when a mobile in this price range manages to include a 90Hz refresh rate, so the Cubot Note 50 definitely earns some extra points for that. On the other hand, the resolution is only 720 x 1612 pixels, something totally understandable in this segment. That said, the image quality it offers is reasonable and the fluidity of those extra hertz is felt, so in the grand scheme of things it is a success.

How does the Cubot Note 50 perform?

The Cubot Note 50 is powered by a Unisoc Tiger T606 chip, which integrates an 8-core CPU in the company of 8GB of RAM, which can be 16GB through that virtual expansion functionThe one that manufacturers boast about so much. For his part, the Internal storage has a capacity of 256GB and we can add 1TB via Micro-SD card, although of course, that comes at the cost of sacrificing a Nano SIM slot.

For reference, this device scores almost 1,400 points in the Geekbench 6.1 multi-core test and 376 points in the single core. While the Note 50 can handle most everyday tasks with ease, resource-intensive games may experience occasional lag. However, the device strikes a good balance between performance and power efficiency thanks to the UNISOC Tiger T606 chipset.

Android 13

In combination with a Android 13 stock version, a smooth experience awaits us for the tasks and applications of the day. It can even move games like Call of Duty Mobile with medium graphics at over 30FPS. For the price its performance is more than decent; The only complaint is that you probably won’t receive major OS updates in the coming years, just security patches, as is usual with devices in this range.

Lastly, the device is powered by a 5,200mAh battery. That’s 200mAh more than average. Be that as it may, it is enough to a day and a half of normal use or two if we are conservative. Unfortunately it doesn’t have fast charging, so it will take a few hours to recharge to 100% (3 hours).

Cameras

In the photographic section we can say that the Cubot Note 50 prioritizes quality over quantity of sensors. Going into details, it is equipped with a 50MP main camera and 2MP on the rear, and when natural light is on our side, it can capture shots rich in details, with little noise and colors quite close to real life. Naturally, as night falls a lot of that goes to waste and leaves us with results that reveal the true range to which this mobile belongs, but to be honest, this is the case with all entry-level mobiles.

Meanwhile, on the front we find a 8 megapixel camera for selfies and video callswhich provides decent image quality for self-portraits and participating in video calls, but not at night.

Those interested in the Cubot Note 50 can purchase it through the reliable Amazon.es storebut it can also be found available on PC Components for a competitive price. As always, we advise checking all offers before making a decision.
