Doogee T6 Review: UNBOXING
The phone comes with instruction manuals, a charging brick, USB cable, USB OTG cable for external devices, a screen protector and a SIM ejector pin. Finally, you are getting a nice soft TPU case to protect your device.
Doogee T6 Review: DESIGN and DISPLAY
Doogee T6 is not a small device due its 5.5” display. Well, this size of the screen has already become a standard for most of us.
The panel itself is just 720p resolution but it not that bad. It is bright and the colours look natural.
The star of the show here is a large 6250mAh battery, which makes the phone heavier than usual as it weighs 230g.
On the front, we have a 5MP shooter and LED notification light along with the non-backlit capacitive buttons.
The backplate is made of plastic but it actually feels nice to the touch.
The camera has an 8MP sensor, which is capable of shooting 13MP images with dual LED flash. Also, we have the loudspeaker on the bottom.
The sides are also made of plastic and we have the buttons on the right, which have a good tactile feedback but they feel a bit cheap.
Overall, the phone is well built, it feels nice in the hand but you have to keep in mind that it is quite heavy and it does not sport any premium materials like metal or glass.
Doogee T6 Review: UI
Doogee T6 runs on Android 5.1 with the Doogee’s skin on top of it.
We have some redesigned icons and a bit of extra functionality like gesture and motions controls we’ve seen on numerous phones. The implementation of gestures is pretty good but I’ve seen faster response times on some other phones.
As for daily use, I don’t have major complaints. However, there is a significant delay once you press the home button and that it is kind of annoying.
Other than that, the performance of the UI is snappy and responsive.

Doogee T6 Review: HARDWARE and PERFORMANCE
The phone is not a powerhouse as it sports a quad-core MTK6735 chip with the clock speeds of up to 1.0GHz, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.
As you may have already guessed, the gaming experience is not really pleasant. There is a lot of lag and skipped frames even on medium graphics on Asphalt 8.
Doogee T6 Review: MULTIMEDIA
The loudspeaker quality is not bad but it is not impressive either. On the other hand, it is on par with most of the phones in this price range.

Doogee T6 Review: IMAGE QUALITY
As for image quality, the daylight pictures usually turn out to be pretty good as they have a decent amount of detail. However, the colours are not always accurate and there were quite a few blurry shots.
