Chinese company Oukitel is attempting to break the rather expensive mould when it comes to smartphones, putting just a $99 price tag on their latest invention. Let’s talk you through some of the WP5’s impressive features. 


Maybe not in the traditional sense, but the WP5 has been built to withstand the toughest of challenges, making it a fantastic companion for anyone who works outdoors or for those who frequent their time with rugged, physical activity. 

The phone is manufactured with IP68 military standard. What does this mean? It means it guarantees protection in water up to 1.5 metres deep for a duration of half an hour. It’s entirely dust proof, can be dropped from a height of 1.5 metres onto hard ground without any signs of damage and can withstand an extreme temperature range of -55-70 degrees celsius. 

The display is made from Corning Gorilla Glass. In other words, this phone would give our beloved NOKIA 3310 a run for its money in the robustness department. 

Unrivalled durability 

The battery in the WP5 is out of this world. It runs on an 8000mAH built-in under the hood battery. To be clear how massive that is, the iPhone 11’s battery is 3046mAH. 

It has a standby battery life of 615 hours, a phone call life of 42 hours, a continuous music battery life of 43 hours, and a video streaming endurance of 12 hours. 

Display and performance

The phone has a modest 5.5 inch display, with an 18:9 aspect ratio. It has a narrow 2.8mm boarder to give you full immersion when watching videos in 720 x 1440 resolution. 

It runs on a MT6761 quad-core processor with 3GB RAM and Android 9.0 OS, allowing the phone to run smooth enough amidst your day to day activities. It won’t set the world alight, but you should have got the gist by now that this phone is for hardcore outdoor enthusiasts, not your tech-hungry giant. 

Saying that, the triple-lense 13mp+2mp+2mp camera will offer you the opportunity to take some pretty good photos. Perfect if your into extreme sports and want to capture the perfect backdrop. 


The Outkiel WP5 is the perfect outdoor assistant, home to a 4-LED powered flashlight, GPS, GLONASS (global satellite navigation system) and a compass. 

If you’re willing to swap all-out performance for one fairly average performing smartphone that you’ll rarely have to worry about charging, then the WP5 might be worth spending the small amount of cash on.
