Oukitel K4000 undergoes power drill test, continues playing


The Oukitel K4000 has proven nothing but impressive in its first two endurance tests. It outlasted the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and was used to hammer nails into wood without a scratch or screen crack in the second endurance test. After using the K4000 to hammer nails, the demonstrator sat down the phone and started playing Lady Gaga.

The third endurance test with the Oukitel K4000 is another durability test in which the device proves invincible. What’s the test? Surviving a power drill. In the Oukitel K4000’s latest video, the K4000 is laid flat on a surface while someone drills a power drill into the display. After 4 minutes and 16 seconds or so, the display goes black (which plays music up until that time). Around 5 minutes and 29 seconds, the Oukitel K4000 starts to “smoke” from the display, and a small ring of fire appears on the video. At 6 minutes and 12 seconds, the device has been thoroughly drilled through (there’s a hole that stretches from the front of the display through the back of the phone), but the driller takes out the battery (which also has a drilled hole through its back), replaces the battery, and continues playing the phone’s music list.

One feature that Oukitel showcases about the K4000 is its ability to play music by simply drawing an “m” on the display (even when it’s off). Around 7 minutes and 17 seconds, the driller draws an “m” on the display after replacing the drilled-through battery, and the music begins to play again.

As can be seen in the video above, the K4000 is one of the most durable smartphones on the market. No matter what durability test is designed to kill it, the K4000 just won’t die. Additionally, the Oukitel K4000’s $119.99 price tag is icing on the cake.

What do you think of the Oukitel K4000 after seeing its last three endurance tests?

    This is one crazily rugged phone. I am getting this for me wifey. She is not that good with handling phones so this will suit her perfectly.

    Nothing of what it plays is Lady Gaga. Anyways, this phone seems very durable for someone who want a long lasting phone.

      That part of the article refers to the previous nail test

    Can someone tell me what does this test got to do with a real life usage of the phone? No sane person is going to use it as a hammer or drill through it.

      I guess the test was made with construction workers in mind

    that is drill for concrete, it is not sharp.. a normal drill for metall is sharper it would shutter the glass with even low pressure and go straight thru 😛

      Yep it looks like a masonry drill bit, so unless they put the drill on hammer mode, it will be the lightest of scenarios.

    Have to admit. It’s a beautiful looking phone with a great battery. Needed a cheap 2nd phone for my nefarious activities and was between the infocus m810t, elephone trunk. But now this has changed the game. Cheap and amazing specs. Camera is probably rubbish though.

    its a masonry drill bit, yes its impressive(ish) but a real test would be to have it on a bench drill and a pressure gauge attached so we can see how much force is being applied. change the drill but for a HSS or wood bit and then see how quickly it gos through it.
