Network and Software
As you can see from the quick specs sheet presented above, the Oukitel c3 ships as a dual SIM smartphone and supports both 2G and 3G for efficient surfing of the internet.
Also, the device is running on a not-so-old Android version — Android Marshmallow (Android 6.0). While not presently the latest and the greatest, it should be duly noted that this Android version was released in 2016. So, it’s not so bad.
Display Size and Features
The display screen size of this device is a modest 5 inches. While smaller than most of the other devices present in the smartphone market, this display size would be big enough not to feel annoyingly small in your hands.
Pictures on the display are clear as well, as the resolution of the device is an impressive HD resolution (at least, for its price).
Be sure to purchase a screen protector along with the device as the display does not ship with any protection of any kind.

That should be clear enough for producing decent (read: viewable) images. Also, in front of the device is a 2MP camera for taking selfies.

Admittedly, 2000 mAh would be pretty limiting in today’s world, but when you put into consideration the other low-end specs of the device and it’s price, the 2000 mAh should be decent enough to last you through a day of light to moderate usage.
If you are thinking of heavily tasking this device, then you should consider picking up a power bank (quality ones are relatively cheap these days).
