Oukitel has established itself as a brand associated with smartphones packing large battery capacities, but if there’s one thing I don’t like about Oukitel smartphones, it’s the lack of fast charging technology to go along with their massive batteries. The phones would last very long but would require long hours to charge fully, which is just equivalent to getting a smartphone with a moderate battery capacity. The company has introduced the new Oukitel K6000 Plus to correct that.
As you would expect, the Oukitel K6000 Plus succeeds the Oukitel K6000 that was released in 2015, and brings improvements in almost every area, the battery charging technology being the most important. Here is a review of the Oukitel K6000 Plus.
Oukitel K6000 Plus Review
The Oukitel K6000 Plus runs on Android 7.0 Nougat straight out of the box, but if you aren’t a fan of stock Android, you might not be delighted by the K6000 Plus’ UI, as it is very close to stock Android. Oukitel doesn’t have a custom Android UI yet.
Design & Display
The Oukitel K6000 Plus has the same 5.5-inch IPS display on its predecessor, but this one comes with a Full HD (1920 * 1080) pixel resolution and is protected with Asahi Dragontrail Glass.
The smartphone has a metal unibody design with thin side bezels and a physical home button. It weighs 207 grammes and is 9.6 millimetres thick.
Memory & Performance
The K6000 Plus comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 128GB with a microSD card. It is powered by a MediaTek MT6750T processor with four cores and a clock speed of 1.5 GigaHertz. A Mali T860 MP2 GPU takes care of graphics rendering on the phone.
The Oukitel K6000 Plus sports a 16MP camera with a f/2.0 aperture, PDAF together with a LED flash at the rear, while an 8MP camera takes care of self-photography at the front.
The smartphone packs a 6080mAh Lithium-Polymer battery with 12V/2A quick charge technology which takes the battery from 0 to 100 in just one hour and 40 minutes, and is being touted by the company as the first smartphone with such fast charging technology.
Connectivity & Hardware
In terms of hardware, a fingerprint sensor is embedded into the physical home button of the K6000 Plus. The phone also has a gyroscope which validates it for use with a VR headset. It comes with a dual Nano SIM slot and supports five 4G LTE bands.
