Recently we got an interesting device to play with, the Doogee DG900 Turbo 2 smartphone. We have already listed out the key features of the device in an earlier article, however, this is the first time we got the opportunity to get an hands on with the device.
When we first saw the device, it was enclosed in a premium looking full black case, The picture actually doesn’t do justice to the actual quality of the case. Needless to say, we were impressed.
Once we got the device in our hands, we got little time to test it out.
Doogee DG900‘s design is pretty impressive as it has a rectangular design with a frame like the Lumia series phones. Moreover, it has dual color tones, which to be frank looks quite good. The sides are curved and the devices fits well in the hand. And at 7.1mm, its even slimmer than its predecessor, the Doogee Turbo. To sum up, we like the overall design.
On the front of Doogee DG900, there’s a 5 inch FULL HD screen with Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Yes, you get a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with a pixel density of 440PPI which makes the display extremely sharp and bright. The quality of images and videos displayed were quite good and is comparable to other flagships from competitors.
The volume keys as well as the power button are on the left, so it might take some time to get used to the placement of the power button. You have the sim card tray on the right, which supports dual sim cards like other Doogee smartphones. Below the 5.0 inch display, there are three capacitive buttons while on top, you have the ambient light sensor and the front camera.
Inside, there’s an Mediatek MTK MT6592 Octa Core 1.7 Ghz processor along with 2GB RAM. You also get a rear 13MP camera with LED flash. As for the software, it comes with Android 4.4.2 Kitkat out of the box.
Another interesting thing about the device is that it will support WCDMA 900/2100 & GSM 850/900/1800/1900 network bands. This means the phone will be compatible in a number of new markets, which is definitely good news for international buyers.
Doogee DG900 is one of the first Doogee smartphones to support these network bands, so any Doogee fans out there who couldn’t buy Doogee devices previously because of incompatible networks can finally pick one up.
Unfortunately, this is all we have on the device at the moment, but be sure to check back on our website in the coming days as we’ll try hard to get a full hands on review of the device. Till then, you can read our detailed article on Doogee DG900 to get more information about the full specifications and features of the handset.
