Oukitel K10 Review

Oukitel K10 is a chinese phone monster with a 11000 mAh battery

Over the years, it seems that the biggest problem we have had on smartphones has not been solved. This problem, of course, is the battery of smartphones. Luckily, there are some Chinese brand that seem to defy this problem, such as the newly filtered OUKITEL K10.

The Oukitel K10 is a relatively new smartphone that offers interesting technical data. For example, the K10 uses an 18:9 format display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. FullHD+ on a diagonal of 6 inches. There are also four cameras on board. The dual main camera works with 21.0MP + 8.0MP (but interpolated from 16.0MP + 0.3MP ), while the dual front camera offers 13.0MP + 8.0MP (also interpolated from 8.0MP + 0.3MP ). Further features include the SoC MediaTek MTK6763( also called Helio P23 )with Octa-cores and up to 2.0 GHz, full 6GB RAM and 64GB storage space. Unfortunately, the Android 7.1.1, which has become a little dusty in the meantime, serves as the operating system ex works. The battery, which according to Oukitel boasts an impressive 11,000 mAh. This is a higher capacity than the majority of tablets and is already operating in notebook regions. Accordingly, the Oukitel K10 should offer excellent runtimes.

Very fortunate that I got such a large cell phone monster OUKITEL K10! Now, I want to make a comprehensive review of it, let’s go.

Design

Like most other smartphones from Oukitel’s K-series, the Oukitel K10 has a design that is quite different from today’s smartphone. In any case, the K10 with its back made of genuine calfskin is already a special feature. The frame is made of metal and scratch-resistant Dragontrail glass is used on the front.

On the back is a fingerprint sensor and the obligatory dual camera, which are housed in an emblematic design element. In addition, the Oukitel K10 has a face unlock, which is accomplished by the front camera. With a gigantic 11,000 mAh rechargeable battery, the smartphone also has a decent weight. The manufacturer states a total of 283g as. The mobile phone will also be 1.35 cm thick. So it’s not a handy smartphone, but it offers a very strong battery life.

The back of the smartphone cannot be removed. Sim cards are inserted via a side slot instead. The smartphone has a room for two Nano SIM cards. Alternatively, one of the two Simslots can be used for memory expansion via Micro SD card. The underside of the smartphone has a state-of-the-art USB Type C connector. A conventional 3.5 mm headphone connection was omitted. You can listen to music either via Bluetooth or with the supplied 3.5 mm USB Type C adapter.

Display

It is a 6-inch FullHD display with a resolution of 2160 × 1080 pixels. A home button was not used. The smartphone is controlled by on-screen buttons. Thanks to the high resolution, no single pixels are visible on the display and you can enjoy a perfectly sharp picture. The screen size of gigantic 6 inches benefits users who enjoy using their smartphone to play games or watch videos.

Hardware

We can see that the the point of Oukitel K10 running in Antutu is 66870.

A new Helio P23 (also called MT6763) processor in the Oukitel K10 provides the performance. This CPU was introduced in 2017 and is the light version of the Helios P25, and now a lot of mobile phones have been using this processor, For example, Ulefone Power 3. but we suspect that the speed with the Helio P25 is almost identical, because the two processors only differ slightly in clock frequency. The power is provided by octa cores divided into two separate clusters. There is a power cluster with three cores at 2.3 GHz each and a further core at 2.5 GHz as well as an energy-saving cluster with four cores at 1.6 GHz each. The integrated graphics card is an ARM Mali G71 GPU. In the Oukitel K10, the processor is supported by 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. With this equipment there is enough capacity for apps, pictures and videos as well as for extensive multitasking.

Software

With a correspondingly good software optimization, the processor achieves a high speed, especially when using the standard functions. Games can also be played well on the smartphone, although the Helios P23 doesn’t match the performance of a Snapdragon 820/821 processor. However, this should not be a problem for the normal user. As long as you don’t constantly use the smartphone for very complex tasks, you always have a very good speed.

The system used is Android 7.1.1. As we know from the manufacturer, the user interface is only slightly changed. For example, the apps have a different layout, but the entire menus and settings are largely untouched. The Google Playstore is of course pre-installed. Probably in the near future they will update to Android 8.0.

Camera

On the back is a dual-camera setup consisting of a 16MP camera and another 0.3 MP. The manufacturer does not yet provide any information about the sensors installed. However, we can say with certainty that the second camera is only a dummy that does not fulfil any other functions. All “dual camera” functions are therefore implemented via the software and offer no added value. How good the camera is in practice depends solely on the 16MP main sensor and the manufacturer’s software optimization? So, take a look at the photos I took with Oukitel K10:

On the front side there is also a dual camera setup. Here too, only one of the two sensors is responsible for the images and the other sensor is only intended to deceive the customer. After all, the resolution with 8MP is relatively high, which suggests the hope that it is possible to record decent selfies with a mobile phone.

Connectivity

The Oukitel K10 is a dual-sim smartphone. There are two Nano SIM cards in the mobile phone. Alternatively, the memory can be extended with a Micro SD. All 2G, 3G and LTE frequencies required in Germany are supported. Wifi with b/g/n standard and Bluetooth 4.0 as well as GPS are also available. In addition to the standards (proximity, brightness, acceleration) Oukitel uses a gyroscope and a compass as sensors.

Battery

The battery of the Oukitel K10 is of course absurdly over-sized with 11,000mAh. The capacity is about two to three times larger than other smartphones of this size. Accordingly, at least 3-4 days of use with average intensity should be ensured. However, the battery life also depends on the software optimization of the manufacturer and we will only be able to judge in a detailed test report how well the Oukitel K10 really performs here.

In any case, it is pleasing that the smartphone has a 5V/5A quick charge function. It should be possible to fully charge the smartphone in 2.25 hours with the supplied mains plug.

Price and Worth buying?

Currently I find the Oukitel K10 at Gearbest for $279.99. OUKITEL K10 as a phablet features 6.0 inch display afford you a vivid and different visual experience. It comes with most of the features we’ve come to expect from a phablet, including 6GB RAM and 64GB ROM storage equipped with Android 7.1.1 OS that you can play games faster. Besides, 11000mAh big capacity battery affords you long time experience.

Summary

The Oukitel K10 is a very obvious and shortcomings of the product. On the one hand it has 11000 milliamperes battery, on the other hand it is really thick and heavy. Nevertheless, the mobile phone has potential, because some people might like the strong battery life in combination with the powerful hardware. In addition, the mobile phone with its back made of baby cow leather has a refreshingly different look, which may also be appreciated by some people.
