Reviews for the Oukitel WP27

85% Oukitel WP27 Review: Solid Rugged Budget Phone
Source: Root Nation English
In the end, we can say that the Oukitel WP27 is a pretty good protected budget smartphone. Of the obvious pluses can be noted: display, performance, build quality, design, autonomy and the price of the device. Of the minuses, except for the weak camera, namely evening (night) photo and video shooting. But I have already said, the camera is not the main thing here, and they did not bet on it initially. I would say that Oukitel WP27 is not a bad mid-ranger among the protected budget phones. There is nothing in it that would strongly distinguish it from its competitors, both for good and for bad. In general, if you come across discounts, you can take it, the smartphone is not bad. Not a bad mid-ranger among protected budget devices.

60% The Oukitel WP27 is a sub $300 rugged phone that you can throw around

As with all rugged phones, this has a very specific use case. It is very good at completing tasks where you would be outside, on a building site or in an otherwise dirty or dangerous environment. Dropping it in such areas, assuming you don't lose it in the process, will likely result in absolutely no damage to the device, although I do wonder how the polycarbonate backplate will hold up after prolonged use and exposure to rough environments, but there's also a TPU case included if owners are worried about damaging or scratching the camouflage print.. As I have said in previous rugged phone reviews, you can probably forget about using it as a main phone and sticking it in your Bermuda shorts or pant pockets. If you do, however, the ever-present risk of being pantsied by your own phone will haunt you. This is true even for a big guy like myself, it is proper heavy at 328 g. In fact I opted to keep it in my backpack when I was out shooting pictures with it.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
