This terminal drew attention around the world a few months ago, when we announced Oukitel -. due mainly to the 6,000 of its name refers to the milliamp hour battery
Oukitel K6000 is one of the smartphones format phablet 5.5 inches more battery market . It’s a phone entry-price and SoC, but both finished as the overall experience with the team has left us a good feeling that
Once upon a time smartphone / powerbank
Oukitel is a Chinese manufacturer that seems to have proposed autonomy satisfy the needs of an increasingly demanding public. In fact not only Oukitel K6000 with its impressive 6,000 mAh battery and its price of just over 100 euros has been struck on the table, but is also preparing to market a terminal 10,000 mAh battery .
the great attraction of Oukitel terminal is its large battery of 6000 mAh which together with a modest hardware make the smartphone a mobile phone capable of supporting two to four days depending on the use we make of it.
Now let’s see what it is made both aesthetically and hardware level to see how Oukitel K6000.

once the specification table view will we dive with the design and that far exceeds what we might expect from a terminal of this price range.
Oukitel K6000 has a metal unibody construction, in our case, we received for review the model with white front showing a lighter model with front in black metallic gray.
First of all we have to mention that the large battery housed inside causes the dimensions grow something, reaching a thickness of 9.5 mm and it shows in the weight where we go to 205 grams. It is a remarkable weight, the mobile does not go unnoticed in the pocket but forget the inherent advantage of loading the smartphone can compensate for 2-3 days.
In the front we see a screen according to the manufacturer , covers 80% of the front. As usual, the screen does not cover the entire opening intended for it and we have some black frames around. The screen is covered by Gorilla Glass that helps 2.5D, with the curvature of the back, to conceal the extra thickness as we mentioned.
The bottom of the front shows the capacitive keypad NO backlit and on top is usual. sensors, camera and headset to call
on the side we see a remarkable job CNC unibody your body, there is a lateral and two bevels smooth arrival at front and rear.
On the right side we have the power and volume buttons on the left side and is Dualsim tray or microSD more Nanosim.
handsfree minijack connector and microUSB for charging at the top and bottom of the terminal, respectively. The back of Oukitel K6000 has two stripes up and down white plastic surrounding the great bulk of metallic finish that occupies the back.
The external speaker is located on the plastic bottom in an area with micro-camera and dual LED flash on top.
rear plastic zones with gloss detract from the good work of design (to have this thickness) from the rest of the terminal, but be that as it may, at first glance you would not say that the Oukitel K6000 is in a range as low prices
low-cost phablet. 5.5-inch 720p screen
This smartphone mounts a screen with IPS panel of 5.5 inches and 720p. It’s a good screen with good viewing angles, color reproduction and good brightness.
But you also have to be realistic and to acknowledge that it is not the screen brighter market nor uses a FullHD resolution, an improvement that is beginning to be noticeable to the naked eye and common operating distances with this diagonal screen.
we also want to note the black frames around the screen, and that while the side with the glass 2.5D appear to partly conceal their size the upper and lower frames are quite remarkable . The manufacturer says that the display occupies 80% of the front on its website, and personally bet that includes frames like screen in your calculations.
The automatic brightness control has worked well during these weeks of use and fulfills its purpose well. Lower brightness when the room is dark and up when we went outside and / or no direct light.
in our view, Oukitel K6000 riding a 5.5-inch IPS panel with good contrast, no light leakage appreciated and renders the contents well at a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels . By faulted, we would have liked to enjoy the Miravision application to make a more personal setting panel controlling the color temperature, among others.
Gross power, or rather, lack of it
If you want a smartphone with a yield out of this we have to invite you to look elsewhere. Oukitel has focused squarely component with sufficient performance for routine tasks in order to offer a frugal consumption and, therefore, help the huge battery look further.
As an integrated SoC, Oukitel K6000, use the Mediatek MTK6535P , the low power variant of the quad 64bit-core Mediatek company. Most smartphones on the market from Chinese take a leap forward and use the MTK6753 which boasts twice the cores at a higher frequency and improved this model GPU (Mali T720MP2) variant.
the amount of RAM built by the team is more than adequate, 2 GB of RAM to this price range is well known and will avoid you have to be waiting for loaded applications perform intensive multitasking.
then we leave a table comparing performance but I anticipate that the yield will located closer to the quad-core Snapdragon 200 family of Snapdragon 400 family and far from what today is midrange Snapdragon 615 or line Mediatek MTK6753

once located in the mobile market today have to throw a spear in favor of Oukitel K6000. This smartphone covers the basic needs of any user in terms of processing power. In fact not too graphically demanding games Angry Birds style or family game Candy Crush operates perfectly.
Where Oukitel K6000 falls somewhat short tasks is where brute power required and hence the process is quad-core 1GHz is present as a bottleneck as well as in applications where heavy use of 3D where GPU Mali T720 MP2 is a little short to be done even without FullHD resolutions jump.
in our daily life we have not noticed any strange behavior at the terminal, we have multitasking without any problems and we have not noticed any annoying lag.
in conclusion, if you have not been clear, Oukitel is a smartphone that sorely its autonomy for performance .
custom Launcher fluently everywhere
Oukitel K6000 uses Android 5.1 under a very light interface without application drawer, which helps the mobile hardware can give the type.
so much so that the K6000 is a smartphone showing a flow in the change screens and even opening applications.
It is a very clean coat, no flaunts extra applications and functionalities that in most cases, tend to fall into oblivion. Remarks: The Power Save application that manages energy use as well as applications that can shut down the system or when sleeping, all configurable by the user
as for extra features to what is still a pure Android 5.1, we highlight a number such as gestural control with display off which it allows to launch applications directly interacting drawing pictures on it.
We also have the possibility to use multi-touch gestures while using the terminal to perform tasks such as a screen or a portion of it or launch the camera for example.
And last detail we want to highlight the software implementation of a floating button that allows us to launch content in this format, “especially” including videos or music, we can continue to see while we chat or sailed with the terminal.
beyond that, the smartphone has a R OM highly polished with performance that, for the user provides a good feeling and the other hand is able to save energy, which translates into greater autonomy.
Oukitel shows a configured system OTA updates that will tell us when there is a new version of software for your smartphone. During our testing period, the terminal has not received any update and follow the software that came into our hands, version 3.0, a build of 27 November.
Cameras according to the range of Oukitel K6000: meet
the photographic field is covered in the K6000 with an 8MP rear camera that can capture images up to 13 Mpx by interpolation, but not recommended.
it is interesting to note that this camera comes accompanied by a powerful flash that dualled helps significantly in low-light scenes.
In bright outdoor light good results are achieved, however, indoors have to bring out our steady hand if you want moved (unless you use flash) images.
camera ago using the interface typical Chinese mobile with direct access to photo or video and a series of preset modes to capture and flash settings or HDR mode.
the latter mode is performed by combining two images so you still need to keep the terminal to get a good result.
external behaves quite well and is a camera that saves the day , but we must not think of a top-end camera since neither far we get something similar.
The whole lens, sensor and processing software gets photos 8MP decent, we could call midrange in situations of good lighting and somewhat shorter if we were to situations where light is scarce element.
king of autonomy with its 6,000 mAh
in case anyone does he had noticed at this stage of analysis, Oukitel K6000 is a point that stands out greatly compared to other features and also compared to other smartphones on the market. That point is battery 6000 mAh.
on paper promised greater autonomy and is something we have tested thoroughly as we have not only tested the autonomy of the terminal by a light, we have also seen when we use it for hours, Oukitel behaves K6000 very well.
so much so that we have managed to get more than half a day’s display on a brightness level of 200 lux as evidenced capture PCMark, after these more than 12 hours we still have a 20% battery if we have 6000 mAh , we are confident that we can add about 3 hours until it dry.
the choice of components and a very light system K6000 Oukitel make the most suitable for smartphone users Dualsim to the autonomy is the most important when picking a smartphone element.
in addition, splitting hairs, Oukitel has also introduced the characteristic charging other devices via OTG, offering a maximum voltage (measured) 1 amp.
when loading the K6000 Oukitel expect the spend hours and hours filling that huge battery power again, but nothing beyond reality. This terminal enjoys SISTEAM quick load thanks to its charger (5 / 9V) is able to pass 0 to 100% in just under 2 hours .
This section is the most positive terminal of a modest, both in specifications and price and you will make more than one purchase arises. We have spent a entire weekend without visiting an outlet , from Friday morning until Sunday night has used GPS, games, email, messaging push and there was still loads to give some war on Monday.
It’s amazing how you use the phone and does not lower the percentage of remaining battery power. Hours pass and are surprised pleasantly to see all the battery you still have to consume, Oukitel has known how to successfully implement a large capacity battery with rapid charging system, but it is a pity that it is only this field high on the smartphone.
Oukitel K6000, basic phablet with massive range
this mobile phone is one of the cheapest you can buy Chinese, hovering above the 100 euros. It is a very capable smartphone and great strength, range . This point is completed with quick load , which does not eternalize recharge your battery, and the ability to charge other devices from it.
However, we must bear in mind that this advantage involves a consideration, thickness and weight. It is the heaviest of the market for 5.5-inch but those about 200 grams placed him as a smartphone you can not ignore if you carry in your pocket.
Apart from that we have a SoC with very fair return . It is perfect for browsing, watching videos, social networks, but do not expect a good performance in current 3D games. If this is the case, we would encourage you to look at other options, with Mediatek SoC least 6753.
Oukitel K6000 has left us a impression but, yes, and depend on patterns of use of each plus assess whether the battery or, on the other hand, we can fit fair return.
- quick charge
- just Power
