Oukitel K6000 Pro: the upgrade of a King of autonomy
we talked about the Oukitel K6000, a very basic benefits phablet with a generous battery of 6000 mAh that would make it an ideal choice for the non-experienced smartphone users. Now Oukitel has made a complete makeover to make this smartphone even more competitive. Just like the previous version, it has a metallic chassis with the typical plastic bands for the antennas, although in this case the camera takes a square shape that provides it with a serious but less elegant look.
The screen is still 5.5 inches, but its resolution went from 1280 x 720 pixels to a Full HD resolution that seems more suited for this diagonal screen. This is a 2.5D screen and it’s protected by Dragontail 2 crystal. And speaking of resistance, all of the Oukitel K6000 Pro counts with IP64 certification which grants protection against dust and splashes.
But not only the screen has improved, all the processing segment has taken a step forward, from a humble MKT6735 Quadcore processor ( 4*Cortex [email protected]+GPU ARM Mali-T720), 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage to an octacore also made by Mediatek, specifically the MT6753 which has already been seen in many smartphones. The RAM goes up to 3 GB, as well as the storage that goes from 16 GB to 32 GB which is expandable via SD to achieve the extra 32 GB.
Nothing new in the photographic section, where we still count with a rear camera of 8 MP interpolated to 13 MP (Sony IMX214) and a front camera of 2 MP interpolated to 5 MP (OV5648) next to a LED dual tone flash.
Regarding connectivity, there’s no change either and we have a Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi 802.11 g/b/n (150 Mbps of download and 40 Mbps of upload), Miracast, OTG, HotKnot, GPS with A-GPS and Dual SIM (Micro dual SIM or 1 Micro-SIM+ 1 Micro-SD). The Oukitel K6000 Pro includes among its nets one with 900 Megahertz for the 3G and one with 800 Megahertz for the 4G, which is why it’s fully prepared for the Spanish market.
One of the main innovations of the Oukitel K6000 Pro is the inclusion of a fingertip reader that can be used to unlock the phone or control the access to the apps. We also have gestures that work with the screen turned off and the possibility of taking screenshots with a 3 finger drag gesture.
To finish with its specification the 6000 mAh battery, proportions of 15,43 x 7,67 x 0,98 cm and a weight of 214 grams, because of this it might not be the best choice for people who are looking for a lighter smartphone. The operative system is updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
UlefonePower: the first octacore with a battery of 6000 mAh
Since we’ve told you all the details of the UlefonePower at the time, we’ll take a brief moment to review them
- Screen:5 inches IPS with Full HD resolution 1920 x 1080 píxeles
- Processor:MTK6753 octacore a 1.3 GHz
- GPU:Mali T720
- RAM:3 GB

As we can see the differences with Oukitel 6000 Pro are quite a few, but there’s still some differences. Although we have the same processor, RAM, screen and resolution on the same phones, in the case of the Ulefone, its storage is left with 16 GB, on the other hand, its micro SD reader allows it to have a capacity of 128 GB, that is way above the 32 GB the Oukitel is capable of reading.
Another difference is found in the connectivity, since both have a finger print reader and identical network support, in this case,we find WiFiac that will allow us to connect to 5 GHz networks, such as those commonly used on the routers of the main telephonic companies that provide an optic fiber connection on the Spanish market, which will grant us a significant capacity to download data.
Both phones use the metal frame in the same way, but the Ulefone’s rear is composed by polycarbonate resistant to abrasion, offering in exchange a better protection for the screen signed by GorillaGlass 3.
We’ll put an end to the comparison with some interesting details, such as the inclusion of an infrared port which the Oukitel Pro 6000 lacks, as well as a button made exclusively to take pictures as well as recording audio.
¿Which one shall we keep, Ulefone or Oukitel? Conclusions and price.
It is difficult to draw a clear winner between these 2 phones, since both are focused on the autonomy and share many main specifications; so it will be the little details that will determine if one it’s worth buying or not. With both smartphones we have a Pump Express technology from MediaTek that grants us a day of full use with only 30 minutes of charge, so in this section the tie is absolute.
If we like to store thousands and thousands of pictures and videos, the UlefonePower is the ideal smartphone, since its wide storage capacity (SD Card not included) make it great to storage music, movies and videos in high definition which we can enjoy on our free time. Also, we have the little extra that is the infrared port, something that some users really value. If on the other hand you prefer more of a premium design, a somewhat higher protection with certification IP64 and operative system that is more updated such as Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Oukitel K6000 Pro would be the smartphone of choice.
