After seeing the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Deals and a few others appearing on here recently I thought I would put in a phone that I have recently purchased [after doing a fair bit of research to find a dual-sim phone, with decent band-support, 5 inch screen and opportunity for software updates].

Doogee get a decent reputation for a Chinese brand (also responsible for the HomTom - http://www.doogee.cc) and can be bought on amazon through various suppliers; they also support OTA updates.

This phone has decent phone-band support for 2G, 3G and 4G coverage in the UK and Europe (www.willmyphonework.net)

Basic specs:

MTK6737 (new) Quadcore Processor
2GB RAM
16GB ROM (expandable with MicroSD/TF Card)
Dual Sim
Fingerprint Sensor
4000mah battery for a couple of days use
5 Inch (720p) Screen
Available in Black or White

The camera is the weakpoint for this phone (5MP interpolated to 8MP front and back), no Gorilla Glass screen (although a $1 glass screen protector sorts that) and the robust looks due to the large battery.

IMO its one of the best (new - not 2015 release) low-priced phones. For this price, make sure you choose "EU Warehouse"

courage???????? it's a Phone not Life Changing Decision....could you please explain your Gibberish response ....


it was just a bit of tongue in cheek humour based around the new iPhone 7 launch, it was how they describe their decision the remove the headphone jack at their launch event.

Looks like a good deal for the money if you're happy with the respectable 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM.
The big battery is what i like most about this deal.

Just because the phone supports OTA updates, don't assume it will get any.
These Chinese companies rarely support their phones beyond a couple of month after launch.
My Doogee Y100x has not had a single OTA update. Fortunately there has been no noticeable need for one apart from perhaps the latest android version ( its on 5.0 )
My Y100 Pro got about 5 updates over about 4 months, just bug fixes no major OS revision. Not much different from many other phone makers including the more expensive ones like Motorola, they release with more outdated versions of the OS to begin with, then do you a favour upgrading it to a less out of date version still a version behind.
It's best just to buy the phone with the version of the OS you want, if it gets updated then that's a bonus.

Yeh it might feel cheap but to be fair it is cheap. I have a Moto G3 for work that has a bend in it (because I keep it in my back pocket), I also have a Uhans S1 as my own phone (3GB, 32GB 5" which I paid £87 for) which is awesome and hasn't bent. I would cut this phone some slack that for the money it's great value. Hot from me.
I have a Doogie X5 Pro which cost me all of 50 quid delivered. 2GB/16GB/Dual sim with dual standby. Works perfectly, nippy enough for 90% of what I tend to do on a smartphone. The only feature that lets it - and the hundreds of these sub-£100 phones - down is the poor quality of the camera. In perfect lighting it takes acceptable photos but that's it. I have a little girl and the countless times I've missed a good shot of her because of this camera drove me to go for a contract with a better phone. I'm still keeping it as a back-up as the dual-sim is very useful when going abroad when you don't want to risk a more expensive phone, and allows you to use a cheap local SIM for data and outgoing calls while receiving messages etc on your main SIM.
Not sure why anyone would want to use their phone to take pictures anyway, except people who take pictures of needless things, like food and children rather than just enjoying them. Invest in a camera if you want a good shot.

I have a Nikon D5100 with a couple of decent lenses, but every time I run to get it, power it up, focus lock etc the moment has passed. Yes I accept that a DSLR will always take a better photo than a phone, but when it comes to impromptu shots at home it's hard to live with one around one's neck all the time (though that might be just my personal experience).
Then perhaps I might be in a small minority who believe that photos of children aren't needless.

Indeed, if you're the kind of person who likes the latest versions or maybe root and put different roms on you'll need to wait around a bit and see if a community arises around a phone.

My Lenovo K3 Note was around £100 - it was initially released over a year ago....a 3rd party Nougat rom has just been released in beta! i bought it because it had a good community and i suspected this kind of support would continue.

Xiaomi is one of those few companies. Lot of their oldish phones keep getting os updates.

£10 cheaper from lightinthebox but never bought anything from there so not sure if reliable or not.

I've had the 2015 version (DooGee X5pro) for almost a year now and it's been very good. Runs quite quickly for most things and it's still working after having been dropped on the ground a few times. You can't use it for VR (No gyro sensor). Updates are a bit thin on the ground (last security update was January 2016. Never had an OS update).

Good spot, Lightinthebox have it for $5 cheaper but it is shipped from China. Easy to compare the price to the X5 Max (not pro) which is an older model.

Oh, thought it was the same model. 'Pro' and £10 price difference...

No.

As a Scottish person, I have no idea what you are on about.

*** HOLD ON! Flash of inspiration moment ***

Doogee = Dougie? (Scottish-ism for Douglas for those that don't know)

With the always **** part something to do with Dougie Donnelly perhaps?

Tenuous! :p

(Could be worse. I had an "Ainol" tablet for a while .... (_;) )

Samsung are almost as bad as the Chinese grey imports now they're so slow with updates. If they bother at all. The other big guys aren't much better.

Only surefire way to stay as up to date as possible with 'Droid these days seems to be to stick with the Nexus devices. I've been on Nougat for a couple of weeks now (6p). Not sure if anything much outside the Nexus stuff has had an OTA push of it yet?

I bought another version of this phone, similar specs, and I have to say its the best phone I have owned. Its crazy spec for the price. Whilst I there are flaws, such as the camera, I would argue that unless you are one of these people that spend their time taking pictures of their food rather than eating it this phone is for you!

Do these come loaded with malware? I ordered the Pepsi P1S from banggood a little while back when it was about this price and it came with about 7 malware threats that were built in to the ROM. Annoying AF, haven't got round to sorting it out yet cause of the ball ache. :(

I have a Smart Ultra 6, it feels very cheap too and cost 50% more than this - hell, some people say the Moto G/X/Z Play 'feel cheap' and they cost 5-6 times as much!?
