K6000 Plus Review – Design and Built Quality
The original K6000 and K6000 Pro were milestones in both built quality and performance in 2015.
As years go by the trends change and K6000 Plus changes with the modern times.
Oukitel has really outdone themselves in the front side. Looks are inspired by Huawei P10 and Lenovo P2 and you immediately feel how premium the phone is. K6000 Plus’s built quality even surpasses Redmi Note 4X in my opinion.
Display quality is really top-notch with vibrant colours and great visibility.
Handling the phone feels natural and easy. The Front Fingerprint scanner is accurate and effective, but cannot compare with flagship devices like Mi 6 and Huawei P10.
Best looking phone when it comes to display and built quality at this price.
Asahi Glass is not as popular as Gorilla Glass, but it’s even better! That’s right!
Crazy tough and scratch-resistant.
The back side is a bit plainer compared to the front with a nice grey metal shell and plastic top and bottom antennas.
Following current trends, K6000 Plus comes in Black/Silver and White/Gold options, and both look great.
K6000 Plus Review – Software
Running a very stock Android 7.0 most of you will feel right at home. Gone are the days of bloatware from smaller Chinese companies, K6000 Plus offers a very clean and user-friendly experience.
Customizations options are available from the start with 10-15 themes to choose from.
Oukitel’s latest flagship comes with all Google Apps and services pre-loaded and integrated.
Only additions here are the One Hand panel, which is really handy. Basically, it’s a toggle and recent apps in one and you can access it by swiping from the bottom right corner.
All Nougat features like Split-Screen Multitasking and Screen Recording run great.
Plenty of languages is built-in making for a great international usage.
The camera app is lacklustre and although a manual mode is present it’s not the full manual.
You can’t adjust exposure time or focus, just exposure, ISO and White Balance.
K6000 Plus Review – Performance
K6000 Pro comparison
General performance is very good, thanks to the 1.5GHz Octa-Core CPU and 4GB RAM. Side-loading all your apps is a breeze as the K6000 Plus rarely breaks a sweat.
K6000 Pro’s MT6753 is still quite capable, however, there is a clear difference in performance.
Opening lots of tabs and multi-tasking results to slow-downs and more heat from the CPU of the older K6000 Pro.
K6000 Plus Antutu
K6000 Pro Antutu
We see a nice boost in 3D performance, compared to the older MT6753.
I was disappointed not to find a Gyroscope and Magnetic sensor in the K6000 Plus as this was a much-requested feature in the K6000 Pro.
K6000 Plus Gaming
Most light and moderate 3D Games run great,
however, some heavier 3D(First Person Shooters) games will experience lag.
Considering K6000 Pro’s MT6753 can barely handle moderate 3D games now K6000 Plus is a real upgrade.
K6000 Plus Battery Life
Battery performance is superb in standby and GPS mode, if you use your phone mainly for browsing and media 12-14 Hrs of SoT are possible on a single charge.
Mainly for calls, social media and light browsing and youtube the K6000 Plus can a good 30% more compared to K6000 Pro.
Gaming hurts battery life more. You would still get around 6Hrs of SoT with heavy gaming involved, which by itself is not bad. Much better than the 3-4 Hrs with the K6000 Pro’s MT6753.
K6000 Plus LASTS WEEKS on a single charge mostly for calls and standby, a superb backup phone.
Furthermore, a Helio P20 or Snapdragon 625 would have given even better battery life here, although that would make the phone more expensive.
Charging takes around 2 Hrs thanks to the 24W Quick Charger.
Rest assured you can get a full day of moderate usage with just 30mins of charging.
K6000 Plus Camera Review
Both 6000 Pro and 6000 Plus feature 16MP Main cameras, but both use different vendors.
K6000 Pro relies on Sony IMX214, while K6000 Plus relies on 16MP OmniVision OV16880, same as the XIaomi Mi MIX, Mi MAX and LeEco S3!
Let’s check out some auto-shots from the K6000 Plus!
Omnivision’s 16MP sensor delivers great photos for the price, simple and effective with fast-autofocusing and plenty of details. Colours tend to be darker, and there is a bit of overexposure, however, given the price I think the cameras are outstanding.
That being said Video Quality is still behind Xiaomi and especially Meizu devices at this price.
The real difference is with the front cam as the new 8MP sensor is far better than the 5MP one present in the K6000 Pro.
K6000 Plus delivers much better selfies, compared to most phones in this price category.
With camera not being the main focus, Oukitel has managed to pack very capable sensors given the price.
K6000 Plus Pros and Cons

K6000 Plus Review Cons

K6000 Plus Conclusion
I can definitely recommend K6000 Plus to anyone looking for a good phone in this price category.
Great display, built quality, general performance and outstanding battery backup along with capable cameras.
If you don’t have your heart set on a Gyroscope, Compass sensor and shooting lots of videos that is.
