Doogee Y100X preview $85 1GB 720P
Doogee has been marketing towards westerners for a while, but have recently fell out of the limelight and replaced by more aggressive brands such as Elephone. That doesn’t mean they’re out for the count; the Doogee Y100X, aka Doogee Nova, is a budget phone with excellent specs for an $85 mobile.
They’re using the MT6582 SoC in combination with 1GB RAM/8GB storage, which is plenty to run smoothly. Some may lament it not having a more powerful SoC, but my main mobile for the past half year is an MT6582 based phone and it’s suited me very well. When going back and forth between MT6752 based mobiles and my MT6582, there is no sense of frustration or feeling like it’s a big step down; MT6582 performs nearly identically for the majority of tasks. Getting to the point in a very round about manner: The average user should be more than happy with the SoC in the Doogee Y100X.
Also included with the Y100X is a 5.0@720p display. According to Doogee marketing, the display is IPS OGS and 2.5D Gorilla Glass protected. I really like the decision to stick with 5.0″ here and hope other manufacturers follow suit with creating some smaller phones.
The battery is 2200mAh. Cameras are 8mp/5mp, and interestingly the front camera has an LED flash. Dimensions of the phone are officially reported by Doogee to be 140x70x8mm.
Frequency wise, the Doogee Y100X is WCDMA 850/1900/2100. This is an intriguing decision, as it makes it compatible with nearly all 3G areas in the Americas. Some Europeans will lament the lack of 900, but 2100 offers great coverage for the majority of UK/Europe, and is a great phone for Asians frequency wise with both 850 & 2100.
I’ve tested several Doogee phones in the past and generally have found them to be good phones. Anyone who’s looking for a budget mobile and has coverage of the above mentioned 3G frequencies, especially those are looking for a light and compact phone will want to give the Doogee a hard look.https://gizbeat.com/7951/doogee-y100x-preview-85-1gb-720p/https://gizbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/doogee-nova-y100x-2015-07-15-15_29_48-DOOGEE-450x425.jpghttps://gizbeat.com/wp-content/uploads/doogee-nova-y100x-2015-07-15-15_29_48-DOOGEE-150x150.jpgDoogeeFeaturedMT6582MTK6582RecentDoogee has been marketing towards westerners for a while, but have recently fell out of the limelight and replaced by more aggressive brands such as Elephone.
