Digital Camera World Verdict

This is a good package for the money, a very well packaged and stylish device (except very ugly camera protrusion), and it definitely has the power to deliver media consumption and review as well as day-to-day mail and other apps. It isn't really powerful enough to tackle creative tasks, but there is a lot to like.

Pros

  • +

    Premium-looking shell design

  • +

    Android 13

  • +

    Good 4-speaker system

  • +

    Pen-like tool and case included

Cons

  • -

    Pen is a unnecessary addition

    Video tops out at 1080P

  • -

    Selfie camera limited to 720P

  • -

    Fake camera lens looks ugly

I didn't pick up the Oukitel OT8 expecting to be blown away – it doesn't cost much more than an Apple Pencil after all – but I was genuinely surprised by what you get for your money.

The <a href="https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/amazon-fire-max-11-review" data-link-merchant="digitalcameraworld.com"">Amazon Fire Max 11 has the downside that it'll push you towards Amazon's own stores, but on the other hand you're getting a more powerful device in terms of processor (2.2GHz v 1.6GHz) and a less dishonest camera, plus there is a keyboard available.

You might need to dig a bit deeper for the budget <a href="https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/reviews/apple-ipad-10th-gen-2023" data-link-merchant="digitalcameraworld.com"">iPad 10th Gen but you can find it for a little less and, in comparison, it's screaming fast, boasts 500nits of brightness and – when you're ready to spend more – has a real pencil.
