Seems like a lot of phone for the asking price? Not the fastest phone out there (kimovil state the Antutu score as 19200) but perefectly respectable given the price and the 2GB/16GB combination. Plus good UK 4G compatibilty.

Should be good - I bought the Doogee X5 3G for £32 for my daughter when her own phone was being repaired, and we were incredibly impressed with the build quality and useability -so much that she opted to keep it.
Not the greatest in terms of specs eg 720p screen but a great price. I would say that with a very large battery and low resolution screen this could be a great work phone though! Last for days and even more if gets marshmallow.
Only downside is the camera I guess
But good enough for my father in law
Ordered thanks
a couple of quid cheaper at gearbest, but heat anyway

No point of cheering the big spec if it scores so low in Antututu.

Its not how big it is but what you do with it that counts.
To be fair this isn't a phone aimed at power users! Anything around 20,000 on Antutu should be more than useable for everyday tasks. And to get 2GB RAM/16GB ROM, a 5.5" screen (granted 720p as opposed to 1080P), a 3000mAh battery and 5.1 Lollipop for less than £70 is pretty impressive in my book.

Brilliant price for a great spec phone for the money and even better if you can get this or the
DooGee X5 Pro for less than a nifty in the sales/flash days that keep coming up!
The UMI Rome is about the same price with slightly better specs.
Not too bad for a cheap phone, 16gb ROM made me laugh though.lol

It seems hardly fair to compare this to the iPhone. The iPhone in vastly superior to this, as well as much more expensive. It's apples and oranges.

Also I very much doubt this is eating into Apple's sales. Apple targets the higher end, premium market segment with stunning design, built quality devices aimed at wealthy consumers. And for good reason. They're raking in the cash in the premium segment of the market. I have a PhD in Business Economics.

I don't think you need a PhD to come to that conclusion...
I have a Doogee Y100 X that I picked up in the 11.11 sale for about £30. Didn't have a use for it until I dropped my Honor 7 and smashed the screen, sadly it's now my daily driver until the H7 screen is fixed.

I've had a few budget Chinese phones before and Doogee is definitely worth a shot, the GPS is much better than the Elephone I've had, for example.

The camera is appalling mind...

I guess none of this is relevant to this X6 Pro but the brand is decent in my book

I had a Doogee (turbo f1) a while ago - decent phone for the price but after a couple of months I started getting message notifications with 'cutesy' pictures and in Chinese. I'd removed all the pre-installed bloatware that I could and never worked out what app had been left behind to be causing them. Didn't like the idea of some software running that I didn't know about so changed the phone for a more mainstream brand.

Take from that what you will...

All Chinese vendors use the phrase 'TF card' to avoid licensing requirements around the use of 'SD'. Very clever I say.

The specs are very similar to the X5 pro, which I have, of course with a larger screen. I love this phone but hate the camera. Only wish they had paid a tenner extra for a decent rear camera.
This is a very good phone for parents.

Thats economics!
There are

the wealthy and
the more money than sense! X)

Sadly there are many more people out there that have no money and no sense and they are the main staple of the Apple brand!
How does this compare to my note 3?

Not as good. Except the newer version of Lollipop.

Got a Note 3 myself. Getting rid of it and ditching Samsung due to lack updates.

You'll probably find that wealthy customers often don't pay for their devices - I'd suspect a very large slice of the market is driven by wannabees who think owning an Apple product will raise their perceived social status.

Apple targets the market section of people who are impressed by slick marketing and pay over the odds for admittedly well built products that tie them into the Apple eco-system. I've nothing against Apple products at all but wouldn't consider buying into the idea. Well other than being able to buy more usable products for a fraction of the price and being able to stick two fingers up to market driven consumerism
Can anyone comment on seller, says can take up to 2 months to deliver and will I be stung for extra taxes etc, don't want to order until I know a bit more. Thanks all.
Does anyone know what taxes would be due on one of these ??

Have you used an iPhone? They're amazing. I have an iPhone 5S. I've never met anyone in real life who buys an iPhone "to raise their perceived social status". People buy iPhone because quite simply nothing comes close to its minimalistic yet beautiful design, a masterpiece of engineering. There are only "poor man's" imitators. The white iPhone 5S that I have is a true marvel to behold. Also I'm not sure what you mean by "tied in to ecosystem". I've never felt tied in or locked in at all. Maybe if you bought a lot of stuff on iTunes or whatever. I hardly use it for music anyway though and watch most things on Netflix.

Yes even wealthy consumers pay for their devices - they may be given one by work but usually have another for personal use

They usually mark the value down below the duty threshold. Most of the time it will slip through without being charged. In all the years I've ordered items from china, I've never had a order charged duty.

Yes, I've used a number of Apple products (computers/tablets/phones) and can only say that I don't consider them to be worth the premium prices they are pitched at, or that they are any better than non-Apple products.

Suggesting anything else is a "poor mans imitator" is hilarious! Buy hey, you must be in the target market for the superiority kick?

From my point of view, they offer far less value for money and are far more restricted than the competition. I'm not be-dazzled by the designs personally so that doesn't offer any value at all for me.

I was given an iPad with a broken screen by a friend that didn't want to repair it, I replaced the digitizer and it all works as it should but it's nowhere near as user friendly as any of the Android devices for putting your own content onto it - I'll say one thing, it's certainly much better to use than a Windows tablet - which is awful in my opnion.

Netflix is also another well marketed product that really has very little content, once you get past the first month of use.

My company gave me a Samsung Galaxy A3 - it's very well built and designed but it's an absolute dog of a phone to use...in my opinion.

Netflix isn't the only one I use, I also use other video streaming apps and sites but I say "Netflix" for brevity. Netflix has a fair bit of good content when you know how to use a VPN to get the programmes you can't normally get in the UK

Apple devices are just the best built out there and I mean inside and out, not just exterior design - the minimalist interface is beautiful. The high price is justified by both the beautiful software and hardware. Jony Ive is a genius.
An Android device...not so much. You only need to turn on an Android device to see why, at the most primary level, Android is not and never will be on the level of iOS in design - the home screen. The. Icons. Are. Not. Uniform. I'll say that again - the icons aren't uniform. So right from the get go you're given this cludge-pudge mess of inconsistent interface design. iOS cracked this without a sweat from day one. Oh but of course not to worry, Android lets you customise! Wow! So now you get to muck about with custom launchers - and then get a custom icon pack for your apps - and even then not all of your apps will be included. So to avoid this you simply hide that ugly duckling of an app you couldn't find a custom, uniform icon for, relegate it to the shameful wasteland where all unwanted apps lurk - the app drawer. Before long you've acquired a neat collection of great apps, only problem is their icons won't match the others. So now you decide to banish them all into a folder and keep your home screen, uh, empty. Oh, except widgets. Since you find no widgets that are of any real use to you, being honest, you decide to simply fill your entire home screen with, wait for it ... a clock!... And not to worry, you have those wonderful live wallpapers to distract you from how crap your Android device looks. For the rest of us though, there are better things to do in life than have to worry about customising the interface to look even half decent - and that it's best left to the designer from factory. Hence, Apple, and hence, iPhone.
Note, I've used several Android and iOS devices over past few years and have a Masters in Human Interface and Technology design.
Note 2: To settle this, show me one screenshot, just one screenshot, of an Android home screen that's filled up with stock icons (not empty/widgets) and actually looks nice. Then I'll be a true believer in the Droid God.

Well that's the price you pay to have unlimited options to great phones instead of one mediocre overpriced phone, who's services and OS blatantly tie you in future generations. I'm no developer but I guess its very easy to optimize a os for 1 measly phone per year than it is for a os well that's compatible for anything

I have the Doogee X5 Pro (4G/LTE) & I'm more then ok with it.

So thanx anyway, but on this particular occasion "I'm out" ..... :-)
