Today already very popular Chinese company Oukitel has introduced new dual-sim smartphone called Oukitel U13. From what we can see main features are: very low price of around $120, metal body, and of course powerful hardware which is in this case 3GB RAM including 64GB ROM which is very rare for the Chinese phone.

Build quality & Display

It is very common to see some Chinese phones which are very cheap but in that situation build quality is often very poor. But in this case situation is completely different because Oukitel U13 offers great build quality. Because the case is completely made from metal including all buttons. Besides that it looks really cool and gives the user premium feeling. They really did a great job because as you can see on photos smartphone looks awesome.

Therefore display is 5.5 inch big with full HD resolution made in IPS technology which provides outstanding experience because full HD resolution is great choice for 5.5 inch big screens. The touch works precisely, but we need to tell you that if you decide to buy it it is very likely that you will receive the phone which has also screen protector. For some reason with screen protector the touch is less precise, so it is advisable to remove it. But overall everything is just fine because they have also moved from HD to full HD screens.

Performance and benchmark testing

As we said earlier U13 has very powerful hardware for this price range which is actually around $120. It is based on Octa Core processor Mediatek MT6753, but this is not all because it has 3 GB of RAM including 64 GB of storage where the user has available approximately 54GB, and the best part is you can also upgrade it with microSD card.

We must admit that is great feature because mostly cheaper Chinese smartphones has only 16 GB of storage space, so this is a definitely advantage. Besides that the phone works fluid and fast in every situation including playing games. So it is ready for action! Don’t forget to see benchmark scores below.
