OS, UI and software

Oukitel WP30 Pro runs on stock Android 13 with some minor customizations. The Lock Screen has a minimalistic layout with a Date and Time widget that doesn't preoccupy the space. After the regular swipe up, you'll unlock the device and land on the Home Screen - again with a classic layout. The Google search bar with embedded voice search and Lens is on top, followed by the Time and Date widget. The bottom is occupied by the two rows of apps - favorites and docked ones. Desktop Shortcuts are supported and the Volume adjustment interface is the stock one. The Task Manager tiles the app previews horizontally with the option to access the app info and/or enter split-screen mode. You can also lock/unlock the app meaning that it won't be cleared from the background when locked and vice versa. The default launcher lists the pre-installed applications on successive desktops. From the Home Settings, you can switch to the other launcher that enables an app drawer.
The Home Settings are accessed after you tap and hold on an empty space on the Home Screen. This customization picker also contains a link to the list of widgets and a link to the wallpaper & style settings. Google Discover is on by default and accessed after a swipe to the right from the Home Screen. It can be turned off from the Home Settings as well. The Notifications shade is accessed after a swipe down from the left-top of the display. The Quick Settings is accessed after a swipe down from the right-top. The toggles appear on two screens with options to add more or remove existing ones.
Oukitel WP30 Pro arrives with a very basic set of pre-installed apps. They include Assistant, Calculator, Calendar, Camera, Child Mode, Chrome, Clock, Contacts, Drive, Easy Launcher, eSIM management, Files, FM Radio, Game Mode, Gmail, Google Discover, Keep Notes, Maps, Meet, Messages, Pedometer, Phone, Photos, Play Store, QRCode Scan, Safety, Settings, Sound Recorder, System Manager, ToolBag, Torch, YouTube, and YT Music. The Child mode allows you to create a password-protected space that's child-safe and you have control over which apps and what content the child has access to. The Easy Launcher provides a simplified interface and basic phone features to people who are elderly or with very poor sight. The eSIM management app doubles the eSIM options from the Settings and has an obvious function.
The Game mode app creates a space that ensures uninterrupted gameplay. The Pedometer app is usually a part of the ToolBag app, but in this case, it has been taken out as a separate one. The Torch is also separated from the ToolBag. The latter contains a compass, sound meter, leveler, magnifier, height measuring tool, gradienter, protractor, plumb bob, alarm bell, and a mirror (using the front camera). Finally, the System Manager contains a shortcut to the Battery settings (Power Manager), a shortcut to managing your storage, a Freezing room, where you can put apps that annoy you but don't want to uninstall, and an App Lock for apps to which you want to have a password-protected access.
The Settings app employs a layout that's typical for slightly older Android versions. The various settings menus are grouped and each group is separated from the other by a thick gray line. For each menu, there's a color icon in front of it. The settings search bar crowns the list. The first group is about connectivity and it contains six menus - Airplane mode (a simple toggle), SIM card & mobile data, Wi-Fi (with all adjoining settings for Wi-Fi preferences and Wi-Fi Direct), eSIM management, and Connected devices. The latter includes Bluetooth, NFC, Quick Share, Android Auto, Cast display, Printing, Chromebook, Hotspot & tethering, VPN, and Private DNS settings.

The second group begins with the Notifications settings, including the usual app-specific options, notification history, conversations, bubbles, device and app notifications privacy, lock screen settings, DND, wireless emergency alerts, and the usual toggles for hiding the silent ones from the status bar, snoozing, enhancing, and notifications dots. The second part of the group is about the Display Settings with the standard choice between Bright and Dark theme, brightness level bar, adaptive brightness toggle, screen timeout, display size and text, wallpaper & style, auto-rotate screen, refresh rate settings, screen saver, and a lift-to-wake toggle.
The Sound & vibration is third in the second group and offers no surprises. It begins with the four standard slide bars for media, calls, rings & notifications, and alarm volume. You can also choose a ringtone, alarm, and notification sound, manage the Live Caption options, the vibration and haptics one, as well as the DND mode. The usual toggles for screen lock, touch, etc. are also present along with the sound enhancement features. Security and Passwords & accounts are the last two menus in the second group. The password one is obvious. The Security menu features the usual security status features, screen lock options, settings for face and fingerprint unlock, start lock, app pinning, and others. It also arrives with a new feature - Android Safe Browsing. When on, it alerts you for security threats such as harmful links, webpages, etc.

The third group of settings contains the Apps menu, which is quite straightforward, the Battery menu, which is discussed in the dedicated section of this review, the Storage menu with a link to the Files management feature, and the Accessibility menu. The latter is about managing your screen reader, display (size and text; color and motion; extra dim; magnification), interaction controls, system controls - the same options exist in the System menu, vibration and haptics, Live Caption options, audio aid, and accessibility shortcuts.
The fourth group of menus is the largest one. It begins with the Privacy menu which features the usual settings with the privacy dashboard, permission manager, Android System Intelligence, autofill service, activity controls, etc. Location is the next menu and offers settings again in the context of privacy. The Safety & emergency menu follows with options for entering your medical information, emergency contacts, setting an emergency SOS, alert notices, etc. Digital Wellbeing & Parental Controls is a standard Android option for managing your and your children's screen time. "Fingerprint" is the fifth menu in this group and it lets you add more features and enhance the way you interact with the device once you set up one or more fingerprint IDs. You can set it to return to the Home Screen or a screen back, open the Task Manager, snap a photo or video, and/or answer a call.

The Google menu comprises the standard settings for managing your Google account and all related services. DuraSpeed follows and can be used to restrict background running apps in favor of the foreground ones. When an app is included in the DuraSpeed list, it won't be restricted when running in the background. Memory expansion is a separate menu for enabling virtual RAM expansion with 6GB, 8GB, or 12GB. For the changes to take effect, you have to restart the device. The next menu is dubbed Side Key Function and allows you to assign an action or app to the physical button placed on the left frame. MiniScreen is the name of the menu that manages the rear OLED display of the device. From here, you can select from several clock plate designs, set the screen timeout and the backlight level, check the pedometer data, select the music app, and activate the option to snap 8MP photos with the front and/or rear camera by using your voice.
Smart Assist is the last menu in the fifth group and it includes several smart features that will enrich your mobile experience. One of those is the Smart Touch - a floating dot on the screen that is fully customizable and can be used as an alternative means for navigation and quick access to apps and features. Another smart area is the Gesture WakeUp one with a list of smart gestures. When you enable the, you can wake the screen with a double tap, open the QR code scanner by turning the device to the left, etc. There's also a Gesture Motion part with five toggles which contains the especially useful three-point-screenshot feature. Night Light is part of the Smart Assist menu. You can set the intensity of this feature and schedule it to meet your personal preferences. Finally, there's the One-handed mode that can be used in situations when the one-handed operation is paramount.

The last (sixth) group of menus contains the standard System and About Phone menus. The "System" one lets you set your language and keyboard preferences, the date and time, backup and reset, check for system updates and enable various useful gestures. This "Gestures" menu contains options for quick camera access, settings for what happens when you press and hold the power button, and system navigation settings. From the latter, you can select either virtual buttons or onscreen gestures, each with its customization options. The About phone menu provides the standard device information such as model name, basic specifications, the software build version, etc.
