Cherry Mobile and Lazada Announce a New Trio of Cubix Cube Smartphones for 2017!

In addition to their recently launched Php6,999 Windows 10 notebook, Cherry Mobile’s online-only sub-brand Cubix has also gone about releasing a trio of affordable smartphones for 2017. These phones range from Php1,999 to just Php3,999 and all deliver incredible bang for buck.

Cubix Cube Play

The Cubix Cube Play is the most affordable of the trio, sporting a 5 inch FWVGA, 1.3GHz quad core processor, 512MB RAM, and 4GB of internal storage. The specs hardly impress, but for just Php1,999 you’re getting an entry level smartphone with a large screen that’s great for first time smartphone users.

Cubix Cube Play HD

A step up is the Cubix Cube Play HD. As you may have guessed from the name, it comes with a higher resolution 5 inch HD screen. While it too sports a 1.3GHz quad core processor, it comes with more RAM (1GB), storage (8GB), and the newer Nougat 7.0 version of Android. Naturally, it’d be more expensive at Php2,999.

It also runs on a 1.3GHz MT6580 quad core processor and comes with 1GB RAM. However, you’re getting a lot of storage for the buck at 16GB. At just Php3,999, it’s also quite the steal.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
