Almost all of Apple’s new devices are becoming very popular, despite a flurry of criticism. Many people have condemned the design of the previous iPhone X, but it is still one of the most popular smartphones on the market. Chinese manufacturers are not ashamed to copy the design of Apple products. Moreover, Chinese devices have similar specifications, but much more affordable price.
The smartphone manufacturer Cubot has decided to get ahead of the upcoming bestseller Apple iPhone 11 Pro, and released its smartphone CUBOT X20 Pro with very similar design and specifications. However, the price of these smartphones is significantly different.
Let’s make a brief review-comparison of smartphones from Cubot and Apple. We will try to find out should you pay $1400 for iPhone 11 Pro, or it is better to choose a budget CUBOT X20 Pro.

CUBOT X20 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro: Design
One of the main features of both smartphones is back panel. It is made in a minimalist design, and only small logos of manufacturers attract attention. There are no fingerprint readers or speakers on the back.
In the upper left corner there is a square area with triple camera and flashlight. Please note that these smartphones have slightly different camera positions. CUBOT X20 Pro also has a larger flash size. We will talk about the specifications of cameras later.
On the front of iPhone 11 Pro there is a big notch with front camera and facial recognition sensor.
CUBOT X20 Pro comes with a much smaller waterdrop notch with a front camera. Yes, there is no special sensor for face unlocking, but the smartphone still offers this function. It uses a front camera for face unlock.
If you like large screens, you will love CUBOT X20 Pro. The new smartphone has 6.3-inch display and resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels.
iPhone 11 Pro has a slightly smaller 5.8-inch diagonal. The screen resolution is 2436 × 1125 pixels. We should note that the smartphone from CUBOT uses LCD panel, while iPhone has OLED screen.
Both mobile devices have very thin side bezels. If iPhone 11 Pro has a big notch above the screen, then CUBOT X20 Pro has a small chin at the bottom. It seems they compensate for each other.
Also, the new CUBOT X20 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro smartphones have dual audio speakers and connectors for charging at the bottom end.
Talking about differences, CUBOT smartphone comes with USB Type-C port, while iPhone has Lightning connector.
Both smartphones do not have 3.5mm audio jack. I don’t think that’s a problem in 2019, because many people already use wireless Bluetooth earbuds, and there’s no need for an audio jack.
By the way, the size of these smartphones is also very similar, despite the fact that Cubot X20 Pro has a much larger display. CUBOT X20 Pro has a size of 15.7 x 7.46 x 0.85 cm, while dimensions of iPhone 11 Pro are 14.4 x 7.14 x 0.8 cm.
The weight of the smartphones is 200 grams and 188 grams, respectively. In any case, these are quite compact smartphones, despite the large screens.
As for colors, CUBOT X20 Pro is available in three versions: black, pink gold and blue. iPhone 11 Pro is available in four colors: dark gray, dark green, silver and pink gold.
CUBOT X20 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro: Performance
First of all, you should understand that iPhone 11 Pro is a flagship smartphone. It is powered by Apple A13 Bionic processor with an improved graphics core. The manufacturer has repeatedly said that the new iPhone is perfect for games.
CUBOT X20 Pro has a weaker Helio P60 processor with four cores. Yes, it’s a processor for mid-range smartphones, but it’s also good for most games.
As for memory, iPhone 11 Pro is available in two configurations – 6GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of internal memory.
CUBOT X20 Pro also has 6GB of RAM, but only 128GB of internal memory.
CUBOT X20 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro: Camera
Now let’s talk about cameras. CUBOT X20 Pro is equipped with a triple main camera on the back panel. The main Sony IMX486 sensor has a resolution of 12MP, a second Sony IMX350 20MP sensor for depth photography and 8MP ultra wide third sensor.
On the front panel there is 13MP front camera.
Every year Apple smartphones set the bar for camera quality, and iPhone 11 Pro is no exception. It also received a triple main camera like Cubot X20 Pro. However, the sensors are completely different.
The new Apple smartphone uses main 12 MP wide angle sensor with optical stabilization and an aperture of f/1.8. The second sensor is 12 MP super wide angle sensor with 120 degree field of view and f/2.4 aperture. The third camera is 12 MP telephoto with optical stabilization and aperture f/2.0.
On the front panel there is another 12MP sensor and f/2.2 aperture.
CUBOT X20 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro: Battery
The new CUBOT X20 Pro is equipped with 4000mAh battery. The smartphone lasts for about 8-9 hours of active screen time.
There is no exact information about the battery capacity of iPhone 11 Pro, but the manufacturer says it will have more battery life than iPhone XS. The new iPhone will last 18 hours on a single charge.
We’ll know the exact battery information of iPhone 11 Pro when it comes on sale.
CUBOT X20 Pro vs iPhone 11 Pro: Release date and price
iPhone 11 Pro will go on sale very soon – September 20. It will cost $1400.
CUBOT X20 Pro smartphone can be purchased on GearBest online store for only $149. It is almost 10 times cheaper than iPhone 11 Pro! Very interesting deal, isn’t it?
