What is it? The Oukitel WP5 is the cheapest large capacity Android 10 rugged smartphone available right now.

What makes it special and why should I buy it?  Not everyone can afford the latest and the fastest smartphone. The WP5 will appeal to those who want a reasonably affordable device with a big battery (8000mAh). if you've found something similar and cheaper, let us know via Twitter!) 

How much does it cost? The Oukitel WP5 is available from Banggood for $105.99 (about £78/AU$139) until December 27 without any codes. That's an extra $10 off the current sale price of $115.99. Overall, you get more than 44% off its suggested retail price.

Save $84 without any codes! The Oukitel WP5 is a rugged smartphone with a big difference. It has the largest battery of its price category. Hurry up! This offer ends on December 27.

What else should we know? Inside, there’s a quad-core MediaTek chipset that is paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB storage memory, all of this running on stock Android 10. 

Its 5.5-inch display has a fairly low resolution (720 x 1440 pixels) which should - in theory - improve battery life. Add in a 4-LED bar, a fingerprint reader, triple rear camera sensors and Corning Gorilla glass and you have a pretty impressive entry-level durable smartphone. 

Oukitel has also managed to squeeze two Nano SIM slots and a type-C connector in what is a capable, decently-priced smartphone that will survive more than a few shocks. Just bear in mind that a big battery means an increased thickness (18mm) and heavier weight than most other non-rugged smartphones around today (a whopping 285g).

Any cons? We'd love to have 64GB storage at this price.
