Doogee is kind of a known name in the Chinese smartphone market. The company has released some interesting smartphones in the past and recently announced the Doogee x5 Max. Doogee already has a couple of smartphones in the series, namely the Doogee X5 and X5 Pro, and this should sit between these two models. In case you are wondering, the company is calling this the X5 Max because it comes with a massive 4000mAh battery to keep the phone running for days. Another major highlight of the device is fingerprint ID at the back, which is a feature usually not found in smartphones which are this cheap.
Now, the Doogee X5 Max is available for a price of just $69.74 from the retailer lightinthebox which is a good deal considering the specs and the design of the device. Looks wise, the phone comes with polished arc edges with a slightly curved back that fits well in your hand. Owing to the large 4000mAh battery on board and the compact form factor because of its 5-inch display, the phone is thicker than other handsets, measuring over 10mm. But for the price you pay, this may not be a big let down. Also, the battery is removable, which is another plus point.
The X5 Max comes with a 5-inch IPS display with 720p HD resolution. Inside, you get the quad-core MT6580 processor clocked at 1.3GHz with 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage, further expandable up to 32GB via MicroSD. At the back as well as the front, the phone features 8MP cameras, but don’t expect too much since they are software interpolated from 5MP. Another thing to note here is that this is a dual SIM phone but comes with just 3G connectivity. So, no 4G LTE for this model.
Finally, you have a fingerprint sensor at the back, which is a big plus. Another highlight is that the phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, unlike the other two X5 series models that are still on Lollipop.
Overall, at $69, the Doogee X5 Max is a pretty good handset with a super large battery, fingerprint ID and the new Android Marshmallow.
