VKworld VK7000 review: Rugged smartphone with wireless charging

The Chinese company VKworld introduced the first model in its new line of rugged smartphones – VKworld VK7000. The novelty stands out against the background of other representatives of this segment, thanks to the support of wireless charging technology and Android 8.0 Oreo.

In addition, VKworld VK7000 comes with a special protective case, thanks to which the smartphone does not sink. Thus, if you plan to fish, swim in a boat or just walk around the water, then even if the device falls into the water it can be easily reached. In addition, the device is protected by the standard IP68, which means that even a prolonged stay in the water at a depth of more than one meter will not hurt it. And for a full guarantee of reliability, the smartphone is made in a shockproof case.

VKworld VK7000 review: Rugged smartphone with wireless chargingVKworld VK7000: Design

Outside, the smartphone is consistent with all our ideas about a protected smartphone. Here we have a rubberized body, and metal covers, and plugs on the holes.

The case of the smartphone is made of impact-resistant high-temperature thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), the side faces are made of metal. Most of the front surface is a 5.2-inch display, it is covered with a durable glass Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The whole smartphone seems to be enclosed in rubber “armor”: the bezel protrudes over the edge of the screen and must protect the device even if it falls flat. Pay attention also to the thick frames around the display, the manufacturer states that this was done specifically to make the smartphone more durable.

Above the screen, in the middle, there is a grille of a waterproof speaker, left – a 13MP front camera without flash.

Touch keys – they are pressed well including gloves. Again, the fewer mechanical parts, the fewer opportunities to break.

Bottom sticker with the inscription IP-68. Everything looks good and powerful.

Behind the phone, everything is also classic: ribbed black solid rubber, a cover on the cogs.

In the upper part, there is a metal plate, on which there is a rear double camera with sensors for 16 MP and 5 MP and LED flash. At the bottom is another metal plate bearing the company logo – VKworld.

But not a very classic element for secure smartphones – a fingerprint sensor. Its usefulness can be argued, but in some circumstances, it may really be more convenient to unlock the screen with a single touch, rather than typing a password or PIN. The fingerprint sensor is located on the right side of the phone on the metal cover. There is also an on/off button and a volume rocker.

From the bottom is a USB Type-C connector, covered with a plug, for charging and synchronization.

And on the left – the plug for SIM and microSD closed by a plug. So that no one is confused – even signed.

The dimensions of the VKworld VK7000 are a length of 159.5 mm, a width of 81 mm and a thickness of 13.5 mm. Buy the phone in these colors: Black, Blue and Orange.

VKworld VK7000: Display

VKworld VK7000 has a 5.2-inch display with a resolution (HD) of 1280 × 720 pixels, made by In-Cell technology, covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 proprietary protective glass.

The minimum amount of brightness is very comfortable, but its maximum value in a bright sunny day may not be enough. Colors are juicy, bright, contrasting. At critical angles, the display also shows itself with a very decent side.

VKworld VK7000: Performance

For the performance of our device is responsible, well-proven, 8 core processor Mediatek MT6750T. It operates in cluster mode and has 4 cores with a frequency of 1.5 GHz and 4 with a frequency of 1.0 GHz. For the graphics meets the dual-core video accelerator Mali T860.

Naturally, by modern standards, this is by no means the flagship, but by no means a weakling. In Antutu we recruit honest 40,000 parrots, and in games, we boldly include the average graphics settings.

The amount of RAM is 4GB and the internal memory is 64 GB. If necessary, the storage memory can be expanded with a Micro TF card up to 128GB.

The smartphone runs on the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system.

VKworld VK7000: Camera

The smartphone is equipped with three cameras: two main and one front. In advance, I will say that the additional module on the back does not play any role – just for the Ponte. The main module has a resolution of 16 MP. For a durable smartphone is a very good module.

The quality of the photos is slightly above average. Basically, claims to artifacts, which can be seen even in the daytime. To the balance of white claims are not present: perfectly fulfills at night and under difficult conditions of illumination. The focus is fast and accurate.

As for blurring the background, it is created by blurring the edges of the frame. That’s all. Such a decision makes me sad: I put a 5 MP secondary module – at least make a primitive blur with two cameras.

The front camera has a resolution of 13 megapixels and supports Face ID. Selfies are quite accurate, for social networks – the very thing.

VKworld VK7000: Battery

The VKworld VK7000 uses a non-removable, lithium-polymer battery with a capacity of 5600 mAh. The battery is not the largest in terms of capacity among the protected smartphones. But, on the day of its use, it will be enough. You can charge the battery either by fast charging 5V/2A or by wireless charging.
