The Oukitel U16 Max comes with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed. It is one of the very few non-Google manufactured phones that comes with this OS. It also includes the January 2017 security update. What you make of Android Nougat, so far? Are you excited to try it? Well, you can get your hands on it first hand! It would be a real surprise if you were not intrigued at this point given the budget price of the phone.
Oukitel is known for its clean take of the OS, which it maintains even in U16 Max. With no bloatware, all the software attributes work smoothly and the UI brings numerous customisation options to enhance the smartphone experience and reflect your personalised preferences.
Some of these features include:
- Lock screen contains a shortcut to Voice Search & the native Camera app.
- Unlocking with a swipe or fingerprint scan.
- Default home screen with two rows of apps.
- Access Task Manager from the Menu button
- The Clean All button also allows locking selected apps.
Oukitel added a few extra features of their own, such as the One Hand FloatView, where swiping in from the lower right-hand corner will pop out a menu. Tap on “Recents” to see all recent apps. The FloatView provides options such as Screenshot, Screenrecorder, Scanner, lock screen and a shortcut to settings. The Quick Settings Toolbox icon can be found in the Notifications. Swiping right from the bottom left corner of the screen while on home screen shrinks the screen to a smaller size.
These features were incorporated by Oukitel just to make the one-handed controls easier for the users.
As mentioned earlier, the rear camera is mounted with a 13MP shooter with an aperture of f/2.2.
The front camera is 5MP with a resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels. Both sides deliver good picture quality, however, noise is still visible but it can be reduced to a great extent with third-party applications.
The phone comes with the native camera app which contains three standard modes- normal, beauty and panorama. The camera settings are just the same as the previous OS versions, and while it offers the basic features for amateurs, professional photographers might feel disappointed if they are expecting a professional photo or video capture with the U16 Max.
U16 Max has an HD display with 1280×720 pixels resolution. The pixel density could have been a bit higher given the size of the display screen, and also, 1080 pixels offers Full HD instead of 720 pixels.
But the makers have made the effort to hide the individual pixels and so, the smartphone does provide a great clarity with a brilliant viewing experience.
Tweaking with colour temperature is not possible but seeing how it is on the cool side, most users may not even notice it. The screen display size is adjustable and accommodates more content on the screen.
The display might have a lower than expected resolution, but it should not be a reason to not pre-order this beautiful gadget.
Oukitel U16 Max comes with one speaker at the bottom, which is quite common these days. The speaker quality is quite good, although not high-quality. It has excellent frequency response and Noise and Stereo crosstalk. The overall result sums up to Very Good!
Oukitel U16 Max audio is at par with other average smartphone but none that come at this price range.
For a presale price of only $139.99, it is a great steal! You must put in your order before they are all gobbled up! With so many bonus features, you will not notice any flaws coming from the camera or the speaker. Three attributes define Oukitel U16 Max- large battery, large screen and the latest Android OS.
