OUKITEL C8 vs Xiaomi Redmi 4X – 18:9 Display Aspect Ratio and Cheaper?


The Xiaomi Redmi 4X is such a best selling smartphone that most Chinese phone makers take it as something to aspire to or, even better – beat it. Oukitel is no different with their latest Oukitel C8, an entry-level device with an 18:9 aspect ratio, a.k.a. infinity display. That’s why the company decided to compare the two smartphones; let’s see who’s coming out a winner!

Let’s begin with the display and design. The Oukitel C8 packs a bigger 5.5-inch 18:9 display while Redmi 4X has 5.0-inch 16:9 display, as you well know. The display is thus taller and narrower, so even packing a bigger screen, the C8 results slimmer, the thin side bezels also help with that. A slimmer phone is obviously easier to handle and more comfortable for everyday use. So under this point of view, the Oukitel C8 is probably the better choice.

The Oukitel C8 is also more personalized as it comes in five different colors: Rosy Pink,. Midnight Black, Orchid Purple, Sunny Gold ans Sky Blue. The Xiaomi is instead only available in three colors: Gold, Pink and Black.

As far as photos go, both smartphone feature the same megapixel count, so we can compare the two phones on the quality and colors they provide.

The C8 appears to be warmer and more saturated, and of course you’ve a better view on the bigger display, meanwhile the Redmi 4X look colder and less vibrant. You’ll decide what’s better depending on your personal tastes.

Lastly, we have a look at the specs both smartphones pack. They sports pretty much the same hardware, exception made for the larger display on the Oukitel C8 and the much lower $69.99 price tag that goes along with it. The Xiaomi Redmi 4X is more expensive at around $109.99. So which one would you get?

    Mt6580a, 1280×640, both cameras interpolated, only 900/2100 3g bands, this phone is trash and even worse than the Blackview I was complaining about.

      Agreed. “Articles” like this are basically just advertising and not worth the time.
      It’s a real shame – Andi did such a great job in the beginning and the content and quality of contributors “articles” has nose-dived dramatically. I’d rather have quality information, news, reviews and comparisons, rather than the unrelenting high-volume of poorly written speculative junk (and what looks like paid advertising dressed up as news) from the other contributors/journalists that seem to post on this site now. If things haven’t drastically improved before Christmas, I too will stop visiting this site.

    I cannot recommend Oukitel to anyone, here a few reasons :

    –missed promises – Oukitel promised an update to Android 6.0 for the k4000 and k4000pro series (to arrive at the end of 2016). Till now no official update in sight.

    –ROMs are buggy as hell — call quality issues and the user needs to dig deep to solve some of them by himself (just check the 4pda.ru threads — these are full of “fixes”)

    –k4000/k4000pro was advertised as an “unbreakable” phone. Two of my colleagues dropped it from under a meter — and guess what… a nice “spider web app” appeared on the screens

    –ROM issue in the latest k4000 version available for download — phone doesn’t enter sleep –> quick discharge. Only solution is to re-flash (with flashing tools) an earlier version

    –3 of 5 k4000/k4000pro stopped working after a year — charging problems — I assume a problem with the usb connector.

    Never touching Oukitel again!
