Don’t you hate having to charge your phone once or even twice a day? Wouldn’t you love to be able to forget about charging it daily? Oukitel K series smartphones revolve around huge battery capacities and are made specifically for long lasting duration. The Oukitel K10, is the newest and biggest one we’ve seen up until now, with a battery of 11.000 (it’s not a typo!) mAH. 1 week of normal use and 2-3 days of heavy use, is what you’ll get out of this device, according to the company. You would think that a battery this enormous, would take quite a while to charge. However, Oukitel provides us with the super-fast new 5V/5A flash charger of K10 which charged the device to full capacity in 2 hours 15 minutes. Design-wise the phone sports a rugged and hard look but without compromising on elegance.
Has this phone got your attention? Great, let’s take a look at the full specs of Oukitel K10 and proceed to review it.

Let’s begin with the biggest selling point of this smartphone. It’s huge battery. In case you missed it, the battery is 11.000 mAh. To put into perspective how humongous this number is,
here’s a list of some very popular phones along with their battery capacities
From the picture above, you can see that Oukitel K10 has a battery which is more than 6 times (!) bigger than some of the most popular smartphones.
Here is a video, demonstrating the power of the battery:
K10 is set to max screen brightness and maximum volume and plays a video continuously with WiFi on. The results are the following: After 1 hour of continuous video playing, only 1% of the battery has been consumed. Fast forward to 4 hours later, the K10 goes down to 86%. Going even further, after 7 hours, there was still 70% of battery power left in this beast of a phone. Finally, after 20 hours of playback, the K10 has 6% battery. left.
It’s worth to be noted, that these impressive results were achieved with maximum setting in the brightness and volume of the device. This means that if you lowered those setting you would get even more playback time.
You would think that a battery this enormous, would take quite a while to charge. However, Oukitel provides the buyers with the super-fast new 5V/5A flash charger of K10 which charged the device to full capacity in 2 hours 15 minutes
Oukitel doesn’t stop here, as the rest of the device looks pretty tempting as well. The display is FHD+ with a resolution of 2160×1080 and a pixel density of 402 PPI. The cameras on K10 are 4 on total, sporting 2 on the front and 2 on the back. The back cameras are at 16MP and 0.3MP for the primary and secondary camera respectively, while the front cameras are at 8MP and 0.3MP. Both front and back cameras have led flash.
The processor inside of K10 is the very strong MediaTek P23 MTK6763, which is the same chipset used in the Ulefone Power 3. The graphics are taken care by the processor, since the phone sports the intergrated GPU of MTK6763, the Mali-G71 MP2.
Mali-G71 is the first GPU to use the Bifrost architecture. Bifrost provides high-end mobile GPUs with the ability to deliver extra computational performance. This extra performance can be used to address the ever advancing complexity of modern use cases such as VR and high fidelity gaming. Bifrost enables these use cases without draining the battery or exceeding the thermal budget of the device.
The storage of Oukitel K10 will certainly not dissapoint you. The phone has 64GB of storage along with 6GB of RAM. The storage is pretty big as is, but if you ever need to upgrade it, you can do so by inserting a microSD card in the appropriate slot. The 6GB of RAM are much more than enough for a mobile phone, seeing as there are many computer PCs running fine with 4GB.
The design of the device is not the prettiest we’ve ever seen. However, it’s worth pointing out that this phone is targeted towards the people who are looking for performance and durability. That’s something also seen by the rugged, badass look of the device.
Build quality-wise, the phone is meant to last for a long time and its made from magnesium alloy and leather (on the backplate of the phone).
If you decide to buy the phone, your package will contain:
- 1 x Phone (obviously)
- 1 x Type-C Cable
