Doogee is said to be young chinese smartphones and wearable electronics brand. For this money, Company offers you several models, majority of which are a little bit better than this one. But we choose this smartphone basing on its price. To the point, recently Company presented an update with add-on MAX, where the battery capacity has been increased (4Ah instead of 2,4 Ah), RAM has been increased (from 1 to 2), fingerprint has appeared, it started to support LTE and also back and front cameras have been improved. And difference in price in comparison with previous version is within $5-10.

We chose this smartphone due to its interesting design. Abstract pattern of back cover is alike solution used in the Zenfone Deluxe 2 from Asus. And if you want to differ from others not paying for expensive flagships or you are just bored with monotonous design, then this smartphone will be a great choice.

Why don’t we have Xiaomi, Meizu, Elephone or others worthy companies in this list? Because they are just more expensive, but we have limited budget, don’t we?
