Design And Build Quality
In terms of design, Oukitel RT1 is looking beautiful and modern with some touches that make it really look professional, the body here is built of a high-quality synthetic rubber layer that gives it an appearance of solid and durable. If you ask me about the quality of the manufacturing, there is nothing to complain about it, it’s the closest thing to a premier because Oukitel is always working to provide high-quality products to users all over the world at an affordable price.
The frame, it’s thin and made of metal with a thickness of 14.2mm, while the full dimensions of the tablet are 251.1*170mm and weigh 850g is very weight compared to other tablets but it’s acceptable in a durable tablet, it’s still very strong, with a solid metal frame and with rubber cushions to suck the impact. And what makes it more durable, in the corners, there are cushions for extra protection and comfort when holding the phone. It does not contain Have any kind of protection but is durable, withstands shocks, and rough use.
On the front, it has a large 10.1-inch screen and a 16MP front camera in the middle of the top for taking selfies and video chats. And the other side, as we mentioned, is a synthetic rubber layer body with a 16MP rear camera and flash in the upper corner, and in middle, there is the “Oukitel” logo.
On the right side is the power button integrated with the fingerprint sensor and volume up / down buttons. Last but not least, they’re a Type-C charging port and SIM slot that holds two nano-SIM cards with a MicroSD card. Also, we find a mic and dual speakers. If you notice the 3.5mm audio jack is missing, that means either you have to use wireless headphones or a Type-C to 3.5mm adapter.
The Oukitel RT1 is covered by high-quality synthetic rubber and rated with IP68 and IP69K, which means it is dust-resistant, scratch-resistant, shock- and drop-resistant, and water-resistant up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. In addition, it also has MIL-STD-810G certification, a military standard certification that ensures the integrity of the device is maintained in almost any situation.
Even in 2021, if you’re talking about a Chinese budget smartphone, it will most likely be an LCD IPS screen, and that’s what the Oukitel RT1 offer, but that doesn’t mean it’s bad because it’s 10.1 inches FHD with a good resolution of 1200 x 1920, so you can enjoy any content on the tablet with good color accuracy and brightness enough with improved response accuracy and that will not disappoint you. The bezels around the screen are very thick. This type of screen is one of the best you can get on a Rugged tablet and provides good color reproduction with no picture distortion for comfortable reading. which are more than great for consuming visual content on YouTube or otherwise.
In short, with the RT1 I will not say that its the best screen, but in the Rugged category, you will get the best value for what you pay, a large and high-quality screen suitable for media consumption, whether you are watching the video, playing games or browsing the social media.
The Oukitel RT1 works on Android 11 with full-screen gesture navigation controls, dark themes, split-screen view, and contains most of the features that come with the system, the most important of which is the presence of all Google services, Making the tablet experience smoother and more personalized.
As I always say, the stock Android system is best for cheap devices, with a simple and smooth launcher for better performance, especially it’s without pre-installed apps or games, I really hate this because of the large number of ads, but here it is different.
Oukitel RT1 Performance
If we talk about performance, Oukitel RT1 offers great performance in most of its basic and entertainment uses such as browsing the web, watching videos on YouTube, using social media applications, and reading e-books, as everything worked efficiently and without facing any problems with stopping applications or high degrees.
Most of the applications ran very quickly and thanks to the eMMC 5.1 of 64GB storage capacity, it would be suitable for installing any application you need, with the ability to expand via a Micro SD card to 128TB.
And for multitasking, browsing between applications was smooth because it is equipped with 4GB RAM which is more than enough for most of the tasks that you can do with a tablet such as keeping many applications or large games running in the background. In Short, and for tasks, this tablet will give you a very positive experience.
CPU Performance In Games
Well, It is time to expose Oukitel RT1 to some tasks that need more effort and there is nothing better than playing games with high settings, the conditions here differ according to the application, game, or any type of business that needs large resources, and because the processor used here is MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core 2.3GHz processor and 22mm architecture was one of the most powerful processors used in mid-range tablets, everything was smooth even in medium-graphics games like PUBG or COD Mobile or other requirements games, however, if you play on low settings, You will enjoy smooth gameplay, decent frame rate, play these games and even video decoding. This processor is based on the multi-core Mali G53 at 1.8 GHz and IMG PowerVR GE8320 graphics processor.
In numbers, Oukitel RT1 achieved about 100,000 on the Antutu benchmark, and this tells you about the hardware performance of this tablet. However, games should not be the main reason for purchasing this tablet. Generally, the performance is more than impressive and maybe the best in this category, so far it’s a fierce competitor compared to Blackview Tab 10.
To play the content on YouTube, was very smooth. You can play videos at a maximum of 1080p at 60 FPS without any problems with lag, and up to 4K at best with some slight stutter.
Unfortunately, RT1 does not have Widevine DRM Level 1, so paid services like Netflix and Amazon Prime cannot be viewed in 4K, and this level maybe not be found on all Chinese tablets without exaggeration. However, you can still enjoy Netflix and all other streaming services in 480p resolution.
Oukitel RT1 Cameras
So far, the overall rating of the Oukitel RT1 tablet is more than great, but this does not mean that it’s ideal, especially when we are talking about a medium-cost tablet, in terms of the front and back cameras, you can say it’s fine, not big different from other tablets but it’s better, the back contains a 16MP primary sensor With 1080p video recording, this camera is working but you will only use it essentially because the quality is a low comparison of a smartphone released in recent years.
There is a 16MP sensor, With 1080p video recording for video calls or for taking selfies, although I was disappointed because of its low quality with some noise while recording from the microphone, it’s okay.
In short, this tablet is not intended for photography and I cannot complain more because the cameras are expected to be this bad and this is common in this type of device, only I should have warned about that. However, lighting is very important to show the best result from both cameras.
Connectivity options for this tablet include a high-speed Wi-Fi network that supports 2.4GHz / 5GHz AC power that works well and provides your maximum internet speed, and it includes GPS not the best but it works in addition to not supporting a hardware compass. Also, has Bluetooth 5.0 and 4G LTE multi-band to offer good signal quality and coverage for making phone calls and accessing the Internet easily.
Oukitel RT1 Battery And Charging Time
Oukitel RT1 has a built-in 10000mAh Li-Po battery that allows 8-10 hours of continuous use for surfing the Internet, Google, YouTube, and following social media, of course, the time is less when playing games and using 4G, it will stay with you for a whole day on one charge it mostly takes about 4 hours to fully charge 10000mAh using Type-C, and the charging time seems long, but this capacity is not small and there is fast charging supports 18W. However, I can say that the battery was not bad.
I think Oukitel RT1 is one of the best budget tablets in 2021, with a good processor, abundant memory of 64GB, 4GB RAM, connectivity standards, and a 2k screen, but that does not make it flawless as it lacks a fingerprint reader, slow battery charging, low camera quality and you cannot watch Netflix in HD resolution, but it gives you powerful performance at a low price, so if you are looking for a Rugged tablet at this time, you will not get anything better than RT1 in this price range.
