Doogee managed to keep its Turbo2 DG900 smartphone under wraps for quite some time. But the device will finally be available to pre-order starting this Monday.
Doogee DG900 is an interesting device. The design is quite different than other Doogee smartphones and the specs have improved to a great extent than its predecessors.
DG900 sports a sharp rectangular body with curved sides which sets it apart from other flagships in the market. It seems like the company has finally put some thought into the design as the rear shell will feature a soft texture much like the baby skin texture found on the OnePlus One. There are also some interesting lines alongside the camera which stands apart from the rest of the body.
On the front, there’s a 5 inch Full HD IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. This means the display will be extremely sharp at 440 PPI and images and videos will look bright and clear. Inside, you get a 1.7 GHz Octa Core MTK6592 processor along with 2GB RAM (yes, we finally have a 2GB RAM phone from Doogee). There’s 16GB storage memory on board which can be further expanded up to 64GB via a MicroSD card.
The device supports dual sim, Wi-Fi, 3G (unfortunately no LTE) and even Mediatek’s HotKnot feature which has applications similar to NFC. You also get some special software features like Gesture recognition, tap to wake up etc.
On the back, there’s a 13MP camera along with LED flash. Coming to the front, you get an 8MP 88 degrees wide angle camera perfect for group selfies.
While the DG900 comes with a 2,500 mAh battery, we feel its a bit small as compared to other flagships like Meizu MX4 or Xiaomi Mi4. Even the upcoming Elephone P4000 comes with a 3150 battery pack which means you may not get as much talk time as these smartphones.
Doogee usually prices its phones competitively, and this device too is no exception. The device starts selling from GearBest starting this Monday for an amazing price of $222.13. This is much cheaper than other competitors in the market, hence make sure you check out the new DG900 before buying a flagship phone for yourself.
