The Cubot X15 comes top here but it is hard to tell the quality of photos by the number of pixels a camera has but am sure most users would go for a smartphone with higher pixels regardless.

• Battery: The Cubot X15 is backed by a 2750mAh battery which about 150mAh more than the 2600mAh on the Infocus M810T. This difference doesn’t mean much in real life usage but based on this comparison we have to acknowledge it.
Depending on usage, both device promise about 12 hours (or a little more) of battery life and with power saving mode, it goes up to 14 hours or thereabouts.
• OS: The Cubot X15 is comes out top here running the current latest – Android 5.1 Lollipop with minimal customisation while the Infocus M810T runs Android 4.4.2 Kitkat OS with the company’s InLife UI spiced ontop.
The Cubot X15 and Infocus M810T are two of the most eligible sub-$150 smartphones in the market right now.
The choice is obviously clear, the X15 comes with the current latest OS, have front and rear camera with higher pixels, higher battery capacity even though it only support microSD card up to 32GB. The M810T is not too far behind and deliver near the same performance, like I said earlier, both scream value for money.
