Display Review of Doogee BL 5000

Doogee BL 5000 comes with a 5.5 inch Full HD display. It is a IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 px. It is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 against scratches. It has a reasonable screen to body ratio of 70.79 % which is not at all bad.

The special feature of this phone’s display is its 650 nit display which ensures user finds absolutely no problem in viewing the screen even in direct sun light.

Though a bit battery consuming, this won’t be a problem for this phone as it has one of the best battery’s which we will discuss in further sections.

Hardware and software:

With a sturdy metal body, this phone weighs slightly on a higher side with 210 Grams. It is powered by MT6750 MediaTek 64- bit processor which has a 64- bit octa-core processor. High-end gameplay is taken care by ARM Mali- T860 MP2, 520 MHz Graphics processing unit.

It has a reasonable RAM of 4GB and internal memory of 64 GB which can be expanded till 128 GB using the external sd card. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS which is the recent one in the market which too can be upgraded in case of the release of new version.

Camera:

Though not the best, this phone’s camera would be a serious competitor for the other phones in the same price range.

It basically has three cameras just like other recent smartphones which include two rear and one front camera.

The dual rear camera is a 13MP +13 MP camera with f/2.2 aperture. It supports 2x optical and 8x digital zoom. It is backed up with phase detection autofocus technology which helps the user get bokeh effect which is one of the premium features. Coming to the front camera, it is an 8 MP f/2.2 aperture camera with LED flash and 88-degree wide angle which helps users have wonderful group selfies without using selfie stick.

Battery:

The 5050 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery is definitely a highlight of this smartphone. The Chinese manufacturer has taken utmost care when it comes to battery. With one of the best displays, this phone definitely needs this. The manufacturer claims that the battery lasts for up to 10-15 hours of games/videos and a stand by time of approximately 18 days.

With the huge battery capacity, this phone definitely needs much time to charge it. But Doogee has got it covered with quick charge technology that takes just 10 minutes to charge this beast to 40 percent. However, it may take 2- 2.5 hours to charge it fully which is reasonable considering its huge capacity.

Miscellaneous:

This phone is equipped with all the other common features like 4G LTE, micro sd card slot along with dual Sim card slot, Wifi, Bluetooth, Ambient Light Sensor, Gravity Sensor, Proximity Sensor which are readily present in almost all the phones of current generation which need not require a special mention. It has a dual Sim card slot which supports a micro Sim and a nano Sim with dual stand by mode. Just like all the other recent smartphones, this phone too comes with a 1-year manufacturer warranty
