Wait for the "it doesn't have band 20, all directly imported Chinese phones are out to get us...blah, blah" from a certain member...

No OTG? That's weird and is a deal breaker for me. Shame. (don't know why I can't edit my comments in the app. Keeps failing)

I have the Doogee F5 and it's an amazing phone but I would not get a Doogee phone again as their customer support is terrible

DOOGEE STYLE, what more could you ask for?

Is this the Christmas limited edition? What's with the bra / breast feature?

Yep I wondered that and then decided I was probably better off not knowing

Incredible price. 6.9% cashback at TCB which may get declined due to the code but they can only say no, can't they?

Very common now to see phones of this spec around this price point. Not a bad price if you're after something like this but it has the performance of a very average mid range phone. IMO it's worth spending a little bit extra and getting something with a UK backed warranty, and enough support to ensure you get security and software updates.

Well if it doesn't have band 20 then its pretty useless for 02, giffgaff and tesco. No problem with Chinese phones just wish they had band 20 so I could use them.

Yes, I got that one.
Doogee X6 Pro on ebay for sub £33 right now, but may be a gamble?

Had an F5 pro and it was faulty.
It would have phantom screen touches. The only way to sort it was to hit the affected corner until it stopped.
The screen wasn't very good either it was like there was delamination, or condensation under the screen.

​Just had a look at that seems a lot of phone for the money. Tempted to get one to see how I cope with the screen size and to use as a sat nav

AGAIN.... IT HAS BAND 20!!!!

That's some phone - hot af

No NFC so deal breaker for me.
Also, price now £153.52 and says pre-order.

Any suggestion on alternatives?
Was about to go for this but price shot up from £150 on the weekend to £211 today:
amazon.co.uk/gp/…-21

Sorry, I won't buy any Doogee phone anymore. Worst firmware support experience so far. MTK6750 is pretty old chipset with 28nm process.

NFC seems really unimportant to many Chinese market manufacturers. It's rare.

My next phone will definitely have NFC so I'm not looking to upgrade for the moment.

Also... Are we that far away from some daydream compatible hardware from these kind of companies?

Need to use the code to get the 40 quid off as per original post

This has a 720p screen yes?

That seems more of a deal breaker to me than no NFC.

To be fair phone looks aight for the price, but theres the xiaomi redmi 3s band 20 going for £108 and that IMO is a much better phone overall minus the ram and storage a bit. I would defo choose the Xiaomi over this as its been used alot more times and has very good feedback.

Hot, good specs, but 197grms, bit too heavy...

DOOGEE HOWSER STYLE!

Any trusted reviews guys for this one? Specs look great

Aaah now starting to see the comments about Doogee phones coming through. So many on HUKD have been suckers for the Cores x RAM x MP x P = great phone. You can get bargains for sure but you need to be sensible. One thing to apply as a rule is to never pay over £100 for a phone with a MediaTek processor.

The whole thing sounds too dodgy!

​Hey, Mr Bassman! Get the f-ing nightbus home...

Most of the specs look pretty good but at this price on a pre-order you'd want a Helio P10 SoC at minimum

​Not sure I agree with that entirely, not much wrong with my Redmi Note 4...

Too many Chinese bargains for me to decide. Any advice?

The screens on Doogee phones are absolutely terrible in my opinion, I dunno how some people can't see the difference.

They almost feel a bit like the old resistive screens, they don't register the contact properly to be able to type at the same speed as other phones I find.

Not used this particular phone myself but would obviously feel like a massive gamble buying it.

Doogee has viruses in the firmware. Did anyone scan this phone with anti virus?
