Oukitel is focusing on the entry to mid level smartphone market in China and has managed to achieve great success in recent years. Most people are used to paying insane amounts of money to receive specs and features that are worth much less. Fortunately, the Oukitel U7 Max is here to change the paradigm and head into a different direction.

Oukitel U7 Max is one of the many Oukitel U7 series. The others being Oukitel U7, Oukitel U7 Plus, and Oukitel U7 Pro.

Build and Design

It’s natural to be skeptical of devices which come at a cheap price. We’re pre-programmed to believe that the more expensive a product is, the higher its quality is. That may not be the case with Oukitel U7 Max.

Its design is simplified but eye catching. It will definitely resemble the looks of a famous brand, but it proves that such kind of design could come at a much cheaper cost, nevertheless. The frame around it is made of metal and the front and the rear both have a 2.5D glass.

The unlock/lock button is located on the right, while the volume control is at the left. Here comes the difference in materials though, as the buttons don’t feel a very premium.

Display and Camera

The 5.5-inch display seems to be the industry standard these days, and the resolution the smartphone is packed with isn’t bad at all and the sleek design of the smartphone makes the device fit much more easily in a pocket. The Oukitel U7 Max has a 2-megapixel camera at the front and 8-megapixel camera at the back, which could shoot decent quality images.

An advantage of the display is the fact that its sharpness and visibility isn’t diminished due to sunlight or viewing it from a different angle, making it easy to use while under direct sunlight.


The Oukitel U7 Max comes with a 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor and 1 GB of RAM. It’s not the best device if you’re aiming to play highly demanding games on it; however simple apps such as Angry Birds run as smooth as possible. The U7 Max performs well when multitasking unless you overload it with too many apps in the background.

As a summary, if you compare the phone to entry to mid level tier phones, it’s among the good options on the market and the design is as good as some of the flagship phones. The Oukitel U7 Max is cheap, yet provides with all the necessary features you would require having a pleasant end user experience.
