Oukitel K4000: Unboxing & hands-on review
The orange box that the K4000 comes in is certainly eye-catching. On the underside, you’ll find a list of the most prominent hardware specifications, but there’s not much else going on outside, beyond that.
Lift the lid and the handset is the first thing you’re presented with, mounted within a foam frame the phone is individually packaged too and pulling it out of its sheath we noticed that both a screen protector and a case had been pre-fitted. Whilst it’s always appreciated that manufacturers include a case in the box, we’ve never unboxed a phone where it’s already on the device.
The other thing we noticed was the thickness and weight of the K4000. Most likely as a result of that massive battery, the 5-inch phone comes in at a notable 12.5mm and 208 grams, versus other similarly sized handsets like the Sony Xperia X, which weighs a comparatively featherweight 152 grams.
Under the phone and a card flap lays a white European charger (it’s not known whether there are versions with UK-specific power adapters) and a colour-matched microUSB cable, as well as a warranty certificate and quick-start guide, and that’s all she wrote.
Peeling off the taut translucent case, the K4000 has a near featureless plastic back that’s removed by pulling at the bottom left corner. The 4000mAh battery underneath comes with its contacts covered by protective tape to avoid accidental powering on during delivery (thus why the phone didn’t switch on in the video). Above the battery sit dual microSIM card slots and in between them a microSD card slot that accommodates expansion up to 32GB on top of the phone’s internal 16GB of storage.
Whilst there are metal elements within its frame, the K4000 is unmistakeably a budget device. Priced between £70 and £99, it also packs a 5-inch 720p HD display, a 1GHz MediaTek processor, 2GB of RAM and still runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. Stay tuned for a full review once we’ve spent more time with the Oukitel.
