DOOGEE Shoot 1 Review
(OVERVIEW OF SPECIFICATIONS & FEATURES)
Doogee is a rising Chinese manufacturer that has launched some good smartphones at very affordable prices (less than 150 $). Including Doogee X5, X5 pro, Dooge F7 , etc. that were a huge hit especially in the Chinese market because of their affordable budget and high-end features that offered great value for money.
Rumors were, that Doogee will be launching a marvelous mid-range smartphone with a spectacular camera in the name of “Doogee Shoot 1”, which would also boost their market because there are very few smartphones like that in this range.
Rumors said, that the Doogee Shoot 1 will be sporting a dual lens rear camera with a best in class camera quality and here we have it the official website of Doogee Mobile revealed that Shoot 1 will be sporting a dual lens camera with some more amazing features. So, let’s find out what are these features in the Doogee Shoot 1 review.
The Chinese manufacturer has been making some decent smartphones that always give a good first impression, but the Doogee Shoot 1 is far apart in terms of design and built quality.
The Shoot 1 has a sleek metallic body design with curved edge display that looks very beautiful as you can see in the picture, this smartphone has a very premium built quality with a Smooth feeling that fits in your palm with ease.
From the looks, you can tell that this will definitely create havoc in the market of midrange smartphones It also has a fingerprint sensor located in the front which looks very appealing making its overall look even better.
The Doogee Shoot 1 will be coming with a sharp 5.5” inch Full HD display with 1920x1080p resolutions for enhanced sharpness and contrast with beautiful curved edges, making the cake, even more, sweeter. The Shoot 1 has a contrast ratio of 1400:1 which is pretty amazing.
A full HD display with curved edges and enhanced sharpness is not something we have seen on a smartphone that was priced at this range which will be another major factor of Shoot 1’s success apart from its best in class camera.
Although we have seen mid-rangers to power a 3GB ram nowadays which is pretty common in the current scenario, the Doogee Shoot 1 comes with an unordinary 2 GB and 16 GB of rom which is powered by the MediaTek MT6737T Quad-core processor clocking at 1.5GHz, paired with Mali T720 GPU
This phone comes with a hybrid sim slot, which means you can insert either two sims or one sim and a micro sd card which can be further expanded up to 256GB.
BEST IN CLASS CAMERA:
So now lets come to the most gossiped feature of the Doogee Shoot 1, its camera. Just by the name ‘Shoot 1’ we can guess that this phone is specially designed to meet the needs of photography lovers. The company even claims that we can do professional photography with this device
This device comes with a 13 MP Samsung S5K3L8 + 8 MP dual lens technology. The 13 MP can capture still images in not more than 0.17s, and the 8 MP gives high-quality depth of field, with features like one-touch focus, and bokeh, etc. It also has dual LED flash.
On the front we have a 8 MP shooter that can capture beautiful selfies even in low light and has some handy features like face detection, One touch beautifies, One touch fashion, makeup with powerful editing tools.
RUNS ON ANDROID 6.0
The Doogee Shoot 1 runs on android platforms which will come with Android 6.0 out of the box which is pretty good for a Chinese manufacturer. We can see some of the Doogee retouches on it but that is a given for a Chinese manufacturer.
GREAT BATTERY BACK-UP:
This device comes with a non-removable 3300mAh high-density battery that is said to give 2-3 days of standby. And we are hoping to see some great results as the processor supporting it is said to reduce battery load by 25% making the battery last even longer.
SOME MORE SALIENT FEATURES:
DTOUCH Fingerprint –
The fingerprint sensor found here is not like some ordinary sensor it is called DTOUCH, which offers some extraordinary features that are very handy to have.
DTOUCH enables smartphones to read interactions which help them to guess and work accordingly. In simple words, If you light touch the fingerprint reader it will work like a back key, simply pressing it will take you to the home screen, Double touch option menu, simple touch=receive calls, and this is definitely amazing, I personally love innovative features like these.
One Touch Beautify and Make-up –
This phone has a built-in feature through which you can beautify your photos just by clicking a button, that enables the camera to automatically enhance the beauty of your photo, and add makeup and the fashion edits to your pics on your command which is a pretty handy tool, especially for selfie lovers.
Other Important Specs –
The Doogee Shoot 1 comes with some of the important sensors including -Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient Light, Gyroscope, Fingerprint sensor
It supports all network types including 2G, 3G, 4G LTE and other features like Alarm, Bluetooth, Browser, Calendar, Fingerprint Recognition, Fingerprint Unlocking, GPS, MP3, MP4, People, Video call, Wi-Fi are also present.
Price and Release Date:
The phone is said to be launched at the price of 150$ but will be sold at a discount on most of the sited on its presale that means it will cost you around 120 $ if you purchased it at the discount.
The release date is yet to be confirmed but rumors are that we will be seeing this smartphone in the market in 2-3 months.
The Doogee Shoot 1 is an amazing smartphone specially designed and manufactured for photography lovers and the specs justify that, but for average users who are more into performance than the camera, I think Shoot 1 is not for you. But, if you want an outstanding shooter with decent performance and good battery life, then my friend Doogee Shoot 1 is made for you.
