Oukitel K4000 was a smartphone what I have interested in big battery capacity on 5″ IPS HD display with metal framed outter shelter. I bought in AliExpress favor seller and got it in 2 weeks later with DHL. Actually it was late for delivered to my home because seller has problem in really many orders became a reason.
Ok, whatever reason of delay, I got it in safety package and it works well. So I can write this review now.
Oukitel is one of brand of Chinese smartphone manufacturer. Low price is their primary feature and quality is not bad in price.
K4000 is a Android based economical smartphone that support dual micro SIM slots with micro SDXC for increase capacity for your primary file system – most Chinese smartphones using Android 5.1 and their external SD card is become ‘sdcard0’ mount position to store your intstalled app and most of activities in app.
K4000 packaged in red orange colored boxing with their brand ‘OUKITEL’.
Box is made with thick paper and some specification written in below of it.
K4000 is well placed in middle of box and there was some broken of mine.
A screen protective film already put on front but I need remove dust in adhesive side. You may need double sided adhesive tape to remove dirst easily.
K4000 already include protective soft shell case and it has good quality, then it makes no need to buying new protective shell case. And speaker hole placed in bottom and center of back.
Pull out a layer of contained K4000, and can see some accesarries: A USB cable, earphone and USB charger.
USB charger is really useless, power is not enough to charge in fast – 5V 600mA. It just used to testing phone charge, and put it back to box.
Now open back cover and see inside. There’s dual standby micro SIM slots and one SD card slot. As their specification, maximum capacity of SD card limited to 64GB. I was put MLC 32GB SDHC for safety data life with fast speed ( about above 20MB/sec in write )
Battery is totally 4000mAh ( so it named as K4000 ? ) and compared with my G3 battery ( 3000mAh ), it is more thicker and bigger than BL-48TH. So weight of phone gone for heavier than other. Maybe some people doesn’t like this weight but I love to for long up time.
And must be remembered to peel off blue transparency tape on battery to use it.
As before described, K4000 made with metal middle frame and it makes durable but heavy.
And K4000 earphone plug is not standard of US. You may need a gender for switch ground and mic polar to hear sound correctly, and control volume up, down and play/stop/talk button.
And don’t expect perfect CNC milling, as see below, there’s some difference in level. It’s definitionally not like iPhone or major brand.
In price of 119 USD, I love this smartphone for secondary position. Weight is little bit heavy for big battery and metallic middle frame. Really strong front gorilla glass 3rd gen. makes me don’t worry about breaking out my phone screen. ( You could be search K4000 nail screen in Youtube )
And now continue to review of basic UI.
