Anonymous, 12 Aug 2017Thanks GSM team for this review. And also to all nice people trying to be funny about this on... moreAmazing how you put things in perspective - there a big need for that here on this forum filled with close minded tech lovers. No offence to all you out there, but having a quick glance beyond your own comfort zone can do miracles for the way you look at the world guys.
-> i'll be receiving this phone one of the days, honestly can't wait to test it out and see how a sub $200 phone can still be competitive on a ton of levels
no more 4k after ota update. even using open camera app, uhd 4k is not available. perhaps we are waiting some improvement from oreo on october. if the video looks jerky or stuttery then fix it. do t remove it.
you get what you pay for. It's better to buy more popular and quality brands, even their older models
Did not know that only one camera on rear is actually real and working, and second one is fake, is this true???
This phone is a godsend for pple who want to be on the high end of things for the best price possible u cant say this is an expensive phone considering its pricetag and another thing should also be noted its design is that of any recent smartphone as well it is bezel less to a very understandable degree, i myself would buy it but i already got a great phone :D
After 4 OTA updates in 4 weeks since its launch the software side is much improved.
Secret., 14 Aug 2017The phone has seriously impressed me by the looks. Not so sure about the battery or speed test... moreOr you can take a look at a Galaxy S5, for example. You can find refurbished one for about the same price. Granted, it doesn't look that good compared to mix, but is more robust, with IP certification, has better and higher resolution screen, better autonomy and removable battery. Chipset is better in single core and graphics performance, while UI, despite being LagWiz, is still better than some chinese iCrapUI. Not to mention that if you know how to root it and use XDA, it will be supported for a longer time than Doogie. Also, instead of having 2 useless cameras that can't do even that lame bokeh effect properly, you get one that is still very good, and hard to beat in the price range.
My takeaway from the review:
- It's obviously a copy of Sharp and Xiaomi designs, but that's okay, it's a budget version, with OLED, so all is forgiven
- Stock Android would be a better choice for the OS/UI.
- Why did they use 2 cameras if they're both terrible? They should have invested in ONE decent camera instead.
- That's not bokeh! They just used a circular blur around the center.
- They should include a case like Xiaomi does. I'm assuming a case might be hard to find for this model.
Stay away from Doogee phones as their official firmware is loaded with malwares that will only be activated after a few weeks of usage. Try googling "Doogee malware" and you will find tons of thread about it and some have written on their site too. https://www.computersdealstore.com/doogee-smartphones-come-infected-with-malware/

And also to all nice people trying to be funny about this on... moreOne of the few comments here that makes perfect sense some people criticized most of the flagships without taking into account that there is people that has to live with a much lower specs device and they don't complain as much as those who have a phone that is near perfect and yet they some bash them on the most ridicule details that at the end of the day make no difference.
The specs are great at that price point i must admit, and the AMOLED display is a plus. It's crazy what you can get for $200 nowadays. Doesn't look half bad either. What i'm skeptical about are the radios though.. signal, bluetooth, wifi you know all that good stuff. I'm curious is any of that stuff is any good.
xXENDER FREAKXx, 11 Aug 2017Unwanted phone, u know. People buy SAMSUNG, HTC, SONY, LG flagships. Even XIAOMI and HUAWEI is... moreYeah... I would put Huawei where you put Sony. Sony fails miserably at phones, except maybe for the XZ Premium
This model of doogee is something incredible for its price, also with a lot of memory and a low price, this is a phone that can serve anyone
