Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

This would be a 5 star cube for me other than a couple things. I’m not sure if it comes with an extra battery because I threw the box out but the battery died very quickly on this cube which is kinda annoying considering I had it for like 3 days I ordered more and they are still coming, it’s just a slight inconvenience having to order more batteries 3 days after I bought it. Also the app isn’t super diverse it’s just a timer and a beginning tutorial. I would love to see it have a cfop alg helper. You definitely have to do solves on it to get it “broken in”. However this cube is really great for its price
I bought this one because I wanted a smart cube that had some "puzzles/games." The few that are on there are kind of neat where the puzzles that involve arranging a single face to have a specific set of colors is actually pretty helpful with getting certain pieces to specific spaces even though it's only focused on a single face. I do wish there was more than like 9 puzzles in the puzzle mode and in general more levels that expended to more challenging of a level then just beginner to average for each of the games, but considering the price I'm not complaining.
As far as the cube it's not the worst cube there is. I would compare it to the rubiks phantom as far as it's ability to turn. It's definitely not a speed cube, but it doesn't lock like crazy as a Rubik's brand cube.
As far as the other app features I haven't tried the lessons since I already know how to solve and am learning CFOP algorithms as fast as I can memorize then, but I'm guessing it would be helpful for a newer cuber. That being said the guide books that come with most speed cubes these days can accomplish the same thing. The timer function is useful though and it does have a solve function that shows how to get it back to a solved state.
All in all it's probably not the best choice for cubers that have any level of experience as there are other smart cubes that aren't that much more expensive, but are a much higher quality cube. Although this would probably be a great choice as a gift for someone younger who enjoys puzzles that is a potential future cuber as whether or not they actually end up getting into cubing there's still a few games that can be entertaining on the cube they can enjoy.
Edit: just wanted to update and dock it one star as apparently there's no way to turn off the cube without removing the battery, which is not very easy. They claim the battery should last 6 months, but within a week or two it's already close to 70% battery even though it was only my second time pulling it out. Definitely frustrating considering how uncommon the the batteries it uses are. So that's my one huge gripe at this point.
First of all, I bought it not from the cubicle (sorry cubicle), when it first came, the turning is not that great, corner cutting is just eh. I tried to set it up, loosened it, and it's just bad.
I don't recommend you guys buying this cube...
