Oukitel has many years of experience in creating ruggedized smartphones that offers reliable build and long lasting battery life along with other fascinating features that add up to a very good price/quality ratio for their models. In this article we will be looking at the Oukitel WP5000. It comes with a huge battery, two rear cameras and a fast Processor.
The design and display
In terms of design, there is a certain rugged beauty to the Oukitel WP5000. It does, of course, feature the usual thick rubber coating found on more durable handsets. However, that’s accented by textures and curves for easy comfort in hand placement, in addition to hard plastics for even more of a buffer. It’s also accented by brushed metal edges and a similarly designed surround on the cameras. Not only should that make the device more indestructible. It also adds a refinement that simply doesn’t exist on most other mid-range smartphones. On the technical side of the ruggedization, this phone is rated IP68. That provides a substantial amount of waterproofing and dust resistance, as well as shock protection from drops. Oukitel says it should withstand depths of nearly 5 feet for up to a half-hour. This smartphone really shouldn’t require accessories beyond a screen protector.
As touching the display Oukitel says it has been rated for military-grade toughness and that’s not difficult to believe with consideration for how strong the rest of the design is. Better still, the display is plenty bright enough for outdoor use under almost any circumstances. Measuring in at 5.7-inches, the 18:9 ratio and full-screen design allow that to fit into the same profile a phone might have with just a 5.5-inch screen. That means it’s easy to hold and use with one hand, which is a prospect helped along by its relatively slim design.
Hardware, Software and Performance
It houses an Octa-Core MediaTek Helio P25 chipset. Out of 8 cores, four performance cores are clocked at 2.6 GHz and the power-efficient cores are clocked at 1.6 GHz. While Helio P25 handles the performance department, ARM Mali-T880 MP2 GPU which is clocked at 1000 MHz is responsible for the Graphics unit of the device.
Oukitel WP5000 comes with massive 6 GB and 64 GB onboard storage. This means multitasking will never gonna be an issue on this device. However, if you manage to completely fill up the 64 GB of inbuilt storage, you are free to always slap in a MicroSD card of up to 128 GB.
On the software front, Oukitel WP5000 runs on Android Nougat 7.1
Oukitel WP5000 is following the same Dual cameras trend as followed by all the other manufacturers. On the back reside the Dual camera array out of which, the primary shooter is a 16 Megapixel (21 Megapixel SW) sensor while the supporting camera is a 5 Megapixel sensor.
On the front, we have a 5 Megapixel sensor (8 megapixel SW) which does the job well in bright sunlight.
The Oukitel WP5000 has a 5200 mAh battery capacity. This should last you 2 days under normal use.
