Nowadays more and more people buy a smartphone based on autonomy, as it stoves to recharge your device every 12 hours! This Oukitel K7 It is all about this sector, integrating a battery from 10.000 mAh which inevitably leads him to have important dimensions and weight. However, accepted these compromises can be a perfect device for different users. Let's find out why.

- protective film;
- pin for the SIM slot;
Design and construction quality
Oukitel K7 It is a smartphone with generous dimensions 168 x 78 x 14.5 mm and has a weight of 302 g. Despite the large footprint it is quite ergonomic thanks to the beveled edges even if one-handed use remains difficult. Good construction and beautiful materials, the back cover is leather and laterally the frame is made of metal. Also in the front we have metal inserts: above and below the display there are two small arches that camouflage the abundant frames and give a personality to the device. Posteriorly we have the fingerprint reader that has proven reliable and accurate taking 9 times on 10 even if not lightning. There is the notification LED with only white lighting but with good visibility.
L'Oukitel K7 it's a 6 inches in 18:9, a panel IPS HD + with PPI 268. The quality is in the middle of the category: the viewing angles are good, the brightness is excellent but it sins in the depth of the blacks and in the body of the colors that are always faded. In addition, the panel is not very oleophobic and not too resistant to scratches, but fortunately a protective film is already applied in the factory.
Hardware and software
Under the body of theOukitel K7 we find one Mediatek MT6750t, processor octa-core with maximum clock frequency a 1.5 GHz. The SoC integrates a GPU ARM Mali-T860, together with 2 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 16 GB, expandable through microSD. The hardware, although not on paper impressive, has proved sufficient for all daily operations: no problem with the opening and management of background processes of applications such as Facebook, Instagram and Chrome simultaneously. After the fourth open application, however, it starts to visibly slow down. I have not found any bugs or particular slowdowns except with the opening of the camera that requires almost 10 seconds.
How software is present Android 8.1 Oreo with security patches unfortunately updated to 5 August 2018. The system does not have any particular customization except in the launcher, but we do not find particular additional applications installed. As a release system we only have the fingerprint sensor and the classic sequence, no type of face recognition: a pity for a smartphone so inconvenient!
Photo / video quality
The cameras of this Oukitel K7 they are the most disappointing aspect: at the rear we find a double module from 13 + 2 mega-pixel but the second objective does not help in any way. The shots are always wavy and unclear: I would have preferred an even lower quality going to raise the value of the ISO but in favor of a better shutter speed. The least disappointing aspect are the macros and videos, recorded in Full HD to 30 fps that do not surprise for the quality always resulting kneading and with a stabilization just enough for the category.
Connectivity and audio
With this thickness the. Is clearly present jack from 3.5 mm for headphones even if the quality of playback is not the best. Good the speaker while being mono has a high volume without being excessively metallic or suffer distortions. The GPS / A-GPS / GLONASS it was fast enough to connect and is accurate, then there is the Bluetooth 4.0, the modem Wi-Fi b / g / n Dual Band and the grip USB microUSB.
L'Oukitel K7 It is equipped with a battery 10000 mAh, but to better understand autonomy we need to deepen the temperature. In the benchmarks I obtained good results arriving, on the battery, at a temperature of 25 ° C (all recorded with an external temperature of 18 ° C). This leads us to excellent results: with intense use you can complete 2 days without any problem, normalizing the use is reached an average of 4 days and for the less active you can complete a week. The only problem (it could be only of my unit) is that once you get to 15% the device will suddenly download. There recharge takes place thanks to a charger from 9V 2A able to charge 15% in 6 minutes and complete the charge in about three and a half hours.
Conclusions and price
Oukitel K7 it's a particular device, not suitable for everyone. For those looking for so much autonomy he is the answer. Forget the powerbank, forget the terror when you travel that your device is discharged. The compromises for this autonomy are still many today but if you are willing to accept them you will be satisfied. The price is around 120 € for the basic version with 2 GB of RAM and HD + display, but the 4 GB version is also available with a Full HD + display at approx. 180 €.
