Oukitel WP30 Pro smartphone review - Huge battery, night vision camera and secondary display

Robust Rolex replacement. The bulky Oukitel WP30 Pro is also suitable for very difficult environments, lasts for a long time, and can even see in the dark with its camera. Another special feature is the second touchscreen on the back. Is the outdoor phone just unusual or also usable in everyday life?

Case and equipment - Robust and bulky

The Oukitel WP 30 Pro is adventurous, and you can see that right away: Not only is the design unusual with the rear screen and the carbon look, the phone is also protected from shocks by a rubber coating on the edge and shows some screws open on the side.

This already suggests that the WP30 Pro will also cope well in the outdoors, and it is indeed protected against water and dust according to IP69K and has also passed the MIL-STD-810H tests. According to the manufacturer, you can drop it from 1.50 meters without any problems and dive up to 1.50 meters deep, and the device can withstand the pressure for up to 30 minutes.

With a weight of 414 grams, the phone is significantly heavier than other outdoor phones, and with a thickness of almost 2 centimeters, it is also very bulky. It lies well in the hand due to the slightly outward curved back, but you quickly notice the high weight in the arms.

The manufacturer is very generous in terms of storage: The WP30 Pro comes with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of mass storage. NFC is also on board so that mobile payment services can be used. The USB-C port is protected by a rubber flap and transfers data at USB 2.0 speed at most. Thus, it is also not possible to output pictures to external screens.

The phone supports dual nano-SIM or one nano-SIM and one eSIM. However, there is no microSD reader.

Communication, software and operation - Fast WLAN and accurate fingerprint sensor

The Oukitel WP30 Pro has WiFi 6 as the fastest Wi-Fi standard, which means that it cannot access the 6 GHz band for Wi-Fi connections, but it gets the maximum out of the supported frequency ranges of 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz.

Thus, the speed difference to the Galaxy XCover 6 Pro with WiFi 6E is not too big, and you can also use a gigabit Internet connection quite well with the Oukitel WP30 Pro. Close to the router, the reception is full, and pages load fast. At a distance of 10 meters and through 3 walls, 3/4 of the signal quality is still available and the page loading is also very fast.

The manufacturer installs a 5G modem that can handle many frequency ranges, so you can also use mobile Internet on most trips abroad. Many bands are also supported in the 4G range.

The software used is Android 13. The security patches are from August 2023 and thus a bit older. The manufacturer does not really want to specify an update period, but only talks about sporadic updates over 3-5 years.

Oukitel hardly changes anything in the standard Android and does not install any adware ex-factory. The translation of the own functions in the settings is not always successful.

The touchscreen is very reliable to use, even at the edges and in the corners. There is a freely assignable button on the casing's left that can be used to execute various commands or launch apps.

The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the standby button on the right. It recognizes fingerprints very accurately and unlocks the phone in a flash. Other commands can also be executed here, such as touching the sensor to accept calls.

There is also a face recognition feature, but it is only based on 2D image recognition and is thus not quite as secure. Thus, it is not surprising that the system allows locking the system via face, but biometric login, for example in banking apps, is only possible with the fingerprint.

Cameras - Something very special thanks to night vision camera

The main camera has a maximum resolution of 108 megapixels but usually only uses 1/9 of this resolution for taking pictures. Thus, it creates 12-megapixel pictures, which offer a higher light sensitivity due to the larger pixels. The full resolution can be used in a special mode.

The main camera takes quite passable pictures but does not come close to the imaging performance of high-end cell phone cameras, lacking detail, sharpness, and brightness. In low light and high contrasts, the pictures are well-brightened but not really sharp.

Videos can be recorded with a maximum of 4K resolution and 30 fps. The autofocus works quickly but visibly, and the brightness adjustment also needs time now and then.

A highlight is the dedicated night vision camera, which has a resolution of 20 megapixels and can take black-and-white pictures even in complete darkness with the help of infrared diodes at the back. The range is a few meters, and the resulting pictures are of good quality. We find it ingenious that the phone can also be used as a night vision device, for example during a walk in the forest.

There is no wide-angle camera, but there is a 5-megapixel macro camera for extreme close-ups.

On the front, there is a 32-megapixel selfie camera, which actually uses its full resolution by default but can also easily take smaller pictures, for example, to save storage space. Despite the high resolution, the details of the face look a bit blurry, but on the other hand, even single hairs can be recognized well.

Display - Two screens for the outdoor phone

Subpixel structure
Subpixel structure

The outdoor phone has a Full HD screen with a large surface of 6.78 inches. It is an IPS panel, so PWM flickering is not a problem even at low brightness levels in our measurements. We like the fact that it is a 120 Hz screen that can display scrolling very smoothly.

However, the manufacturer still has to improve when it comes to brightness. The phone achieves just 417 cd/m² on average on maximum settings and with the brightness sensor exposed. That is much less than the competition and makes it difficult to read the display in bright surroundings.

The color reproduction shows a clear blue cast, so you should not rely too much on the correctness of the displayed colors.

It gets interesting at the back of the phone, where a 1.8-inch secondary display is found, which is based on OLED technology. Most likely, it will be used for displaying a clock and notifications or as a viewfinder for selfies with the main camera. However, it is a touchscreen, so music control and other applications are also possible.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
19 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10.4 ms rise
↘ 8.6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 35 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.6 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
26.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 13.5 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 30 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18170 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life - Long runtimes and fast charging

The MediaTek Dimensity 8050 is a fairly new SoC but is technically similar to the Dimensity 1300. Thus, the Oukitel WP30 Pro shows itself very confidently in our benchmarks and outperforms the assembled competition. The pure processor performance is only about half of current high-end smartphones, but it is completely sufficient for most apps and tasks in everyday use.

The Oukitel phone is also a bit ahead of its rivals in terms of graphics power and offers much better conditions for graphically complex apps like games. Thanks to the UFS 3.1 storage, data transfer is not a bottleneck and works much faster than many competitors.

The phone can get quite warm under longer load, which is also noticeable on the casing. The SoC still delivers a similar performance after many benchmark runs, which is confirmed by the 3DMark stress tests.

If you hold the WP30 Pro horizontally, there are speakers on the right and left, which can get quite loud and also enable slight stereo effects. The sound quality is decent but a bit treble-heavy. Users who want to connect external audio devices can use the USB-C port and Bluetooth 5.2. Quite a few audio codecs are available for wireless transmission, and HiRes audio is also possible here.

The massive battery has a capacity of 11,000 mAh. This allows the phone to last long even in the outback, for example, 25 hours of web surfing is easily possible. The WP30 Pro almost doubles the runtimes of the comparison devices.

Even a short charging stop quickly recharges the huge battery: Thanks to 120-watt charging and the matching charger, which is included in the package, the phone is full again in an hour at most, despite the huge battery. However, wireless charging is not possible.

In review: Oukitel WP30 Pro. Test device provided by Oukitel.

With the WP30 Pro, Oukitel builds a phone that cannot be said to be boring by any means: The exterior alone is striking due to the industrial design and the bulky casing, the secondary display on the back offers interesting possibilities, and the night vision camera provides fascinating insights into areas otherwise hidden by darkness.

The SoC brings decent power and the huge and fast memory also makes working with the WP30 Pro comfortable. Water and dust do not bother the phone. It can access the Internet quickly and can also be used well when traveling thanks to many mobile frequencies. There is pure Android installed, although the update supply is probably rather sporadic.

Sure, you have to like the high weight and the massive case, and the screen should clearly be brighter in a phone designed for outdoor use. There is also a noticeable warming on the case under prolonged heavy load.

The Oukitel WP30 Pro is not a delicate, elegant lifestyle device. On the other hand, it fascinates with interesting equipment ideas, and a mud bath doesn't bother it either.

The design of the Samsung Galaxy XCover 6 Pro is much more restrained and lighter - at the time of testing, it was available for less than 450 Euros at notebooksbilliger.de or amazon.de. If you are looking for a secure and long update supply, you can choose the lightweight Nokia XR21, which tries to be particularly sustainable.

Price and availability

The Oukitel WP30 Pro is currently only available at Aliexpress for just under 560 Euros.

However, the smartphone should also be available on amazon.de at the end of November.
