We see a ton of promotional videos for handsets every day, yet it’s always the quirky ones that seem to catch our eyes.

Relatively unknown Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oukitel has released a number of marketing videos on YouTube to demonstrate the build strength of their new handset, the Oukitel K4000 2016 edition. A big selling point surrounding this device is the screen, which is a 5-inch HD panel. This may not sound like much on paper, but when it’s backed up with Asahi glass and three layer anti-scratch 9H protection (mouthful we know), you best start taking it seriously.

In the videos we see it put through various tests aimed at damaging the handset, in which it practically survives them all. There’s one where it gets used as a hammer to construct a table and another where they drill into it until the screen eventually buckles. It’s a great little set of clips that really demonstrate the immense strength of this little handset.

The Oukitel K4000 2016 edition is a subtle upgrade over the handset of the same name, housing a MediaTek MT6735 processor and 2GB RAM. There’s also 16GB storage and a 13 megapixel rear camera, plus a 5 megapixel front facing camera. One of the selling points regarding the Oukitel devices has always been the battery, of which the K4000 has a huge 4000mAh capacity.
