Epblogs verdict

The Oukitel RT1 will appeal to those looking for a tablet that has cellular capabilities, doesn’t cost hundreds and is rugged enough to withstand dust and water projection. The fact that it has a 10,000mAh battery is an added bonus. No wonder that it gets a well deserved recommended badge from us.

At 825g, the RT1 is about twice the mass of a similar 10.1-inch tablet like the Sony Xperia Z. Much of it is due to the reinforced body with necessary additions such as rubberized corners and a metal frame to improve shock absorption. At 251 x 170mm for a thickness of 14.5mm, it is reasonably portable without feeling too hefty. Since this is a shock-resistant tablet, it does come with IP68 and IP68K ratings as well as MIL-STD-810G.

Oukitel’s logotype adorns the rear of the tablet as well as a subtle post-modernist design. A 16-megapixel rear camera with a flash LED is inconspicuously located on the top right. Flip the tablet over and you’re greeted by the 10.1-inch FHD+ display that is covered by a layer of glossy glass, one that sadly hasn’t been coated with an oleophobic substance. The screen is very much prone to fingerprints even when the protective plastic film has been removed. Somewhere on the top bezel is a 16-megapixel front facing camera.

On the left of the tablet are, covered by rubber flaps, a Type-C connector, a SIM Tray and a microSD card slot. You can load two 4G SIM which is a rather enticing prospect. On the opposite side are the volume rocker and a power button. Two speaker grills can be found on the longer side of the tablet – hiding two real speakers – with what looks like a microphone pin hole on the other edge. There’s no POGO connectors which indicates that Oukitel doesn’t plan any optional accessories like vehicle charging docks.


At the heart of the RT1 is a Mediatek system-on-chip, the Helio P22, with a PowerVR GPU, 4GB system memory and 64GB onboard storage. As expected at this price point, you only get DDR3 RAM and eMMC; Oukitel still managed to squeeze in a sizable 10Ah battery which can charge other devices as it supports OTG. When it comes to connectivity, there’s Wi-FI 5, Bluetooth 5.0 and 4G LTE. Sadly, there’s no NFC.

Performance and in use

Despite its eight cores, the P22 is an entry level processor by any measure and that’s understandable given the price tag. The 18W charger is optional as you should be able to use any recent Type-C charger to power this tablet. As expected, it runs on Android 11 with a stock UI, which is our preferred option. The display is bright and offers good contrast except in bright sunlight outdoors, given its average 350nits brightness.

You get the usual assortment of apps available on all Mediatek-powered rugged devices. This one, called Toolbag, includes a sound meter and a protractor. No other bloatware as is usually the case on consumer smartphones. The front and rear cameras do a decent job of capturing pictures, moving or not, just make sure you’ve got plenty of ambient light.

Oukitel RT1 Cameras

So far, the overall rating of the Oukitel RT1 tablet is more than great, but this does not mean that it’s ideal, especially when we are talking about a medium-cost tablet, in terms of the front and back cameras, you can say it’s fine, not big different from other tablets but it’s better, the back contains a 16MP primary sensor With 1080p video recording, this camera is working but you will only use it essentially because the quality is a low comparison of a smartphone released in recent years.

There is a 16MP sensor, With 1080p video recording for video calls or for taking selfies, although I was disappointed because of its low quality with some noise while recording from the microphone, it’s okay.

In short, this tablet is not intended for photography and I cannot complain more because the cameras are expected to be this bad and this is common in this type of device, only I should have warned about that. However, lighting is very important to show the best result from both cameras.

Oukitel RT1 Battery And Charging Time

Oukitel RT1 has a built-in 10000mAh Li-Po battery that allows 8-10 hours of continuous use for surfing the Internet, Google, YouTube, and following social media, of course, the time is less when playing games and using 4G, it will stay with you for a whole day on one charge it mostly takes about 4 hours to fully charge 10000mAh using Type-C, and the charging time seems long, but this capacity is not small and there is fast charging supports 18W. However, I can say that the battery was not bad.


I think Oukitel RT1 is one of the best budget tablets in 2021, with a good processor, abundant memory of 64GB, 4GB RAM, connectivity standards, and a 2k screen, but that does not make it flawless as it lacks a fingerprint reader, slow battery charging, low camera quality and you cannot watch Netflix in HD resolution, but it gives you powerful performance at a low price, so if you are looking for a Rugged tablet at this time, you will not get anything better than RT1 in this price range.
