Oukitel WP5000 Smartphone Review

Mike Wobker (translated by Stanislav Kokhanyuk), 06/07/2018

If the Terminator had a smartphone ... it would probably be the WP5000 from Oukitel. With the WP5000, Oukitel offers a smartphone with a stainless steel frame and great battery life, which will prove attractive to anyone who is looking for a device that can survive in extreme environments. You can learn what to expect from the WP5000 in our review.

The Chinese manufacturer Oukitel has gained prominence through its fully-loaded smartphones with great battery life and a high weight. As our reviews of the Oukitel U18, the Oukitel K10 and the Oukitel K6000 show, these smartphones are rock solid and can compete with any other brand on the market. The price is low. However, the phone will have to be imported.

In our review, we compare the WP5000 with other smartphones with the same SoC to see how it stacks up against the similarly equipped competing devices. Competing devices include: The Doogee Mix, the Maze Alpha X and the Blackview BV9000 Pro. The Blackview BV9000 Pro is a ruggedized smartphone for outdoorsmen. Other ruggedized smartphones that we used in this review include: The Nomu M6, the somewhat more expensive CAT S31 and the Samsung Galaxy XCover 4.

Case - WP5000 is water- and dustproof

The heavy case of the Oukitel WP5000 consists of plastic. Elements made of stainless steel adorn the sides and the rear camera. There are also a number of screws on the back that give the device an industrial look. According to Oukitel, inside the device, there are various synthetic materials (plastics) with different tensile strength and rigidity that are supposed to protect the internal components of the smartphone from severe damage that can come from precipitous drops or hard blows. 

The SD/SIM card slot is also adorned with metal elements. In order to gain access to the slot, you will have to use a special tool (a kind of screwdriver with a flat head). There is no way to access the slot without the tool.

The WP5000 comes with an IP68 certification, which means that the smartphone is water and dust resistant and can survive at depths of up to one meter (~3 ft). However, this does not apply to salt water.

Size Comparison

Connectivity - WP5000 is a robust mid-range smartphone

The WP5000 comes with Mediatek’s Helio P25 SoC and 6 GB of RAM. Thanks to the inclusion of the ARM Mali-T880 MP2 GPU, the WP5000 can be called a mid-range smartphone. The WP5000 features 64 GB of internal eMMC memory.

The Chinese device comes with a USB 2.0 Type-C port. It supports USB OTG, which means that the WP5000 can be used to charge other devices. According to Oukitel, the smartphone for outdoorsmen can be actively used for more than twelve hours, thanks to its 5200 mAh battery.

There is a dual-camera system on the back. There is also a 13 MP shooter on the front. 

Software - The Oukitel smartphone runs Android 7.1.1 (Nougat)

The WP5000 runs Android 7.1.1 (Nougat). The security patches come from February 2018. The device features mostly stock Android with a few minor changes. The preinstalled applications are limited to the “Compass” and “FM Radio" apps. Additionally, the smartphone comes with a “Super Power Saving” mode, in which the smartphone can perform only rudimentary telephone functions. Right now, there is no information as to when the WP5000 might receive an Android Oreo update.

Apps can be installed on an SD card. The internal and external memory can be linked together.

Communication and GPS - The WP5000 is good at geolocation

The Oukitel WP5000 can operate in a wide range of mobile networks (from GSM to LTE). It exhibits no reception problems. Unlike many other Chinese smartphones, the WP5000 supports LTE band 20.

The Oukitel smartphone also supports Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi. In our Wi-Fi test, the WP5000 manages to beat all of its competitors. The transfer rates are great. However, the range is quite limited.

With the “GPS test” app, the Oukitel WP5000 can connect to several satellites. This only functions well outside. Inside, the Chinese smartphone has trouble maintaining a connection with the satellites.

During our bike ride, the WP5000 proves to be very accurate. During turns, between buildings and on narrow paths, the WP5000 is actually more accurate than our comparison device, the Garmin Edge 500.

Call Quality and Telephony - WP5000 as an okay telephone

The WP5000 uses the standard Android phone app. It offers all the usual options. However, the icon of the phone app has been changed. All in all, the call quality is good, but tinny. Voices sound somewhat distorted, especially when the phone is used in speaker mode. At high volume, you can hear crackling and popping sounds when talking on the phone.

The WP5000 does not come with a headset. However, you can connect a pair of headphones to the device via Bluetooth. There is also a USB Type-C to 3.5-mm audio jack adapter in the box.

Cameras - Oukitel smartphone with a dual camera module

The WP5000 features a 13 MP selfie camera on the front. There is also a dual-camera module on the back, which consists of a 21 MP image sensor and a 5 MP depth sensor. There are many options in the settings menu of the camera app. White balance, shutter speed, image stabilization and facial recognition can be managed in the camera settings.

The images taken with the WP5000 appear dim and poorly-lit. However, they are quite well-detailed, that is until you zoom in. Color aberration pops up in both light and dark areas of the image. Under low light conditions, the images seem even dimmer and are full of noise.

We use the “X-Rite ColorChecker Passport” tool to assess the color accuracy of the WP5000’s camera. Most of the colors appear too dark. However, some colors such as dark gray and black are overbrightened.

Accessories and Warranty - WP5000 as an import from China

The box contains two SIM card removal tools, a charger, a USB Type-A to USB Type-C adapter and a USB Type-C to 3.5 mm audio jack adapter.

According to the included warranty brochure, buyers enjoy a 12-month warranty period. However, the warranty is not supplied by the manufacturer, but by the vendor. Before you buy, you should visit our page that deals with importing smartphones from China.

Input Devices & Handling - Display with some resistance

The Oukitel WP5000 comes with the standard Android keyboard. Therefore, typing on the device is fast and easy. The large smartphone is comfortable to hold and it responds promptly to inputs. However, the protective cover on the display makes finger-gliding somewhat difficult, because the fingers meet some resistance when gliding over the screen.

Display - Oukitel smartphone with a mediocre screen

Pixel arrangement
Pixel arrangement

The display of the Oukitel WP5000 has a native resolution of 1440x720. The images and colors are reproduced quite well, despite the relatively low resolution. The brightness is sufficiently high. Outdoors, the display is quite usable. Oukitel has placed a protective cover on the screen. This cover was not placed perfectly. There are tiny bubbles at the edge of the screen. Moreover, this cover is not completely smooth. This makes moving fingers over the display harder.

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 8813 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

When compared to the rest of the competition, the display of the WP5000 proves to be below average. The black value and the contrast ratio are especially poor. However, all other measurements are also below average. The screen brightness is not especially high as well, when compared to the more expensive devices like the CAT S31.

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
22.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12.8 ms rise
↘ 10 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 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 27 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (25.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
34.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16.4 ms rise
↘ 18 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 24 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (41.3 ms).

The display brightness of 500 cd/m² is high enough to be able to read the screen content under the open sky. In direct sunlight, the screen content is hard to read because of the reflections.

Quality journalism is made possible by advertising. We show the least amount of ads whenever possible. We intentionally show more ads when an adblocker is used. Please, switch off ad blockers.

Our review device relies on the Helio P25 SoC from MediaTek. The ARM Mali T880 MP2 serves as the GPU. The device has 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of eMMC storage. All in all, the WP5000 offers competitive specifications. The built-in SoC was introduced in the beginning of 2017. It features eight cores that can run at up to 2.6 GHz. Thanks to the inclusion of the ARM Mali T880 MP2 GPU, the smartphone is powerful enough to be able to handle most Android applications. It cannot run demanding 3D games smoothly. However, simple games should be playable.

In some benchmarks, the Oukitel WP5000 performs very well. However, in other benchmarks, it struggles. All in all, the smartphone for outdoorsmen offers below-average performance. Having said that, the Oukitel WP5000 performs almost as well as any other smartphone with a similar price tag.

Things are similar when it comes to the browser benchmarks. The WP5000 takes first place in the Octane V2 benchmark. However, it finishes last in the Mozilla Kraken 1.1 benchmark. During normal use, the Chinese smartphone provides a smooth browsing experience. Nevertheless, media elements take a while to load.

Straight out of the box, only 56 GB of internal storage is available to the user. The internal memory is not exceptionally fast, but it still manages to keep pace with more expensive competitors. 

The SD card reader offers subpar performance. Most competing devices read data from our reference-grade SD card, Toshiba Exceria Pro M501, significantly faster than the Chinese smartphone.

Games - Oukitel WP5000 can run standard games

The Oukitel WP5000 is suited for simple and older games. All of the games we tested ran well. The controls work very well. However, the screen protector hampers finger-gliding because its surface is not entirely smooth. Additionally, the motion sensor is somewhat sluggish.

Emissions - WP5000 gets warm at idle

Temperature

The Oukitel WP5000 is always warm. Even when idle, the surface temperatures sit at over 35 °C (95 °F). Under load, the temperatures exceed the 40 °C (104 °F) mark. We cannot determine the exact reason for this. Having said that, these temperatures do not represent a risk for any smartphone.

Pink noise

The Oukitel WP5000’s speaker sounds very unbalanced. The audio is already distorted at a medium volume. The overall poor audio quality makes consuming media or talking on the phone quite unpleasant. Those who would like to have a good listening experience should use headphones or external speakers.

In our benchmarks, the Oukitel WP5000 proves to be a mediocre mid-range smartphone. The main advantages of the Chinese smartphone lie in its extremely robust case and its unusually large battery. Additionally, the case is IP68-certified, which means that it is water and dust resistant.

Buyers of the Oukitel WP5000 get a very robust telephone with an exceptional battery life. The mid-range smartphone cannot offer anything more than that.

Prospective buyers should not be fooled by the WP5000’s external looks. Inside, there are only mediocre components. Additionally, there is also the hassle associated with importing a smartphone from China. However, those who are impressed with the design and the robustness of the WP5000 will not be disappointed by it. But, there is one thing that left a bad taste in our mouth and that is the fact that the Chinese smartphone gets unnecessary warm even when idle.
