Oukitel C21 review: Price

 and unbiased opinion about this device the architect c21 currently retails for just about 100 on aliexpress and on amazon you can find it for about a hundred and fifty dollars on jumia you can get it for about 50 000 naira for that price you get 4 gigs of ram 64 gigs of storage 1080p display a mediatek helio p60 processor almost zero bloatware and no ads yep no ads so what exactly is the compromise to offer this device at such a low price point well we'll find out soon enough why not hit that subscribe button and also leave a comment below with a flag of which country you are watching from.

Oukitel C21 review: Design and key features

now let's get into the review proper starting with what comes in the box of the architect c21 it comes in a compact orange box simple classy not much activity other than the architecture brand underneath it is the device specifications the architect c21 comes with a protective casing already tightly fitted in the box it also comes with some product information leaflets a 10 watt charger and a usbc cable also a sim ejector too no earphones and that is particularly because there is no headphone jack on this device now there is one compromise for you this is actually the first project and device i'm seeing ditching the headphone jack on the design part the architecture c21 is a small device by 2020 standards personally i think it's just the right size at 6.4 inches it is also surprisingly lightweight it has a plastic build and a glossy finish it has very slim bezels and also noticeably slim chain you have a 20 megapixel selfie camera to the top left of the display in a whole punch cutout the display is made of glass on the rear we have the quad cameras arranged in the slide bomb or you could say matrix cameras the fingerprint scanner is placed in a rather unconventional position just near the cameras and it is square shaped might take some getting used to but it is easy to reach and it gets the job done though there is a slight delay to unlock the device for bodies and ports at the bottom of the device we have a usbc port a speaker grille and microphone there is no headphone jack on the right side we have the volume rocker and power buttons to the left we have a dual nano hybrid sim card tray which supports a micro sd card for expandable storage since it's hybrid you have to choose between dry sim cards or a single sim and micro sd card at the top there is a sensor not entirely sure what it is definitely not an ir blaster according to the device manual though it says it's a light sensor.

Oukitel C21 review: Software and Display

 the software on the architect c21 is quite standard and very close to stock android with very minimal customization minimal bloatware and also no ads i've not encountered any so far there's no app drawer here so you are going to need a custom launcher for that my preference is the microsoft launcher the architect c21 currently runs on android 10. so far it has handled every app i threw at it flawlessly ram management is also great considering the price this device comes at you may have low expectations but so far it has been great value the use of 1080p ips lcd displays one thing to note here there's barely any device retailing for 100 offering a 1080p display it's actually a really good looking display it has a screen to body ratio of 84.5 percent and a display density of 392 pixels per inch you also get decent brightness levels.

Oukitel C21 review: Performance and battery life

 for overall performance it has pretty impressive benchmark scores both on antutu and on geekbench much thanks to the mediatek helio p60 processor on the gpu it has a mali g72 quite a decent device for gaming as far at 9 play just fine without lags pubg mobile also works fine on default medium settings but you can also go up to hd and high frame rates with no issues at all all through my gameplay on the architect c21 it pretty much gave the standard performance i had no issues it uses a four thousand milliamps per hour battery which i'd say is pretty well optimized and it should meet your expectations it should support 18 watts charging but it comes with a 10 watt charger.

Oukitel C21 review: Camera

 now let's look at the cameras there is a 20 megapixel selfie camera located on the top left of the display there is no front flash on the rear we have the metrics cameras primarily a 16 megapixel main shooter accompanied by 2 megapixel micro cameras and 2 auxiliary cameras not sure what those are meant for to access more camera modes you are going to need to click on extra then you can access macro and pro mode the micro camera is very basic and that is to be expected of a 2 megapixel micro camera pictures from both the selfie and rear cameras are actually quite decent and above my expectations you don't get nice mode here but you can hardly have any complaints seen that this device comes at a very affordable price point you already saw the selfie video quality at the start of this video it can shoot up to 1080p at 30 frames per second from both the front and rear cameras in summary the arcata c21 is a great value device and it's also very affordable on performance it's definitely going to leak up to and possibly exceed your expectations you get a good 1080p display four gigs of ram enough storage and a good processor to go with it but what exactly are you going to be compromising on no headphone jack two cameras which will ensure the purpose also the camera software could use a bit of work and it gets a little hot while charging even when powered off i doubt any of these will be deal breakers especially when you consider the value it brings at a very competitive price is there any device that offers the same or better value at also a competitive price point do let me know in the comment section see you in another video peace.
