There is also a USB OTG cable to connect external gadgets, "Staple" and the adapter for SIM-cards with nano-sized to micro, user manual.

Appearance

Doogee T6 Pro looks very elegant, despite its thickness of 8.6 mm.


The front panel touch glass edged slightly protruding plastic frame. Above the screen is inscribed speaker hole, the sides of which the front camera and the lighting unit / proximity sensors. Under the screen are three touch-sensitive keys, devoid of lighting, but in the classic version of the placement.

The border that runs along the perimeter of the body, protruding outer edge - which is great and makes it easier to grip with one hand smartphone control. At the upper end passed the 3.5 mm connector for headphones, and down micro-USB and a single microphone.


On the right side there is a large volume rocker and the power button, and on the left - a quick look inconspicuous card tray: a two micro-SIM, or one "sim card" and microSDHC memory card.


The back side of the case is made of metal with invoice processing, on the short sides are made of plastic inserts to ensure job antennas. At the upper left is inscribed a large block of the main camera and dual LED flash, and the bottom holes are the main speaker.

Hull construction - monolithic, removing the battery is not provided.

Ergonomics

Doogee T6 Pro can be considered as a compact 5.5-inch smartphone that no problems are placed in the upper garment pockets and allow you to perform many actions with them with one hand.

But the gigantic battery capacity could not affect - smartphone weighs 227 grams, the pocket, and pulls his hand very noticeable. This point should be taken into consideration before buying.

Screen

The device is equipped with a 5.5-inch TFT-IPS display with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels, which provides a density image 267 dpi. With daily use, no complaints to detail is not there, but considering the image and text in focus, pretty easy to discern individual pixels.

By viewing angles no complaints, but the color reproduction to have a small claim with respect to the clamped contrast and white balance cold temperature 8400K area.

In practice it is manifested in the shortage of bright colors, although generally range tones look very natural, and black color gives only slightly blue at maximum brightness. Brightness of the screen, by the way, happy - in direct sunlight, you can watch movies.

Since the glass brand manufacturer does not have, it is better to stick a complete protective film.

Interface

The device runs almost "naked" OS Android 6.0 - all the differences in the shell of Doogee boil down to the fact that the applications menu, there is a single vertical list, and the left softkey is tied to the context menu functions instead of the controller running applications.

In the settings you can find a few additional items related to the management of gestures or exceed the sound through the speaker and headphones. It is worth paying attention to the interesting option of combined downloads of large files - while using Wi-Fi and mobile Internet.

Making the dialer and SMS-messenger is taken from the drain version Android 6.0, and a screen diagonal of this provides the convenience of a decent entry.

Many of preinstalled applications, and, of course, provides a complete set from Google, going to the load to the Play Market.

Interesting to look at a selection of third-party software, which is not only a flashlight, but the office suite Documents To Go, the battery power-saving controller, Bagan side of the keyboard and the data exchange application via Network Places on Wi-Fi. Parallel Space interesting solution for the work with two accounts, instant messengers and social networks within one application - just embodied the dream of SMM-crate to outsource.

The music player supports five-band EQ template with separate bass boost slider. There is also a FM-radio, which requires headphones as an antenna.

Apparatus in the work

In Doogee T6 Pro works with MediaTek MT6753 eight-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53, 3 GB of RAM and a graphics accelerator Mali-T720 MP3. Built-in memory is 32 GB, of which you will get around 25 GB. There is also a slot for microSDHC memory cards and connectivity carriers for USB OTG.

The speed of the device does not cause any complaints. The response to user actions anywhere fast, smart work confidently with dozens of applications running - affects 3 GB of RAM.

Measurements of performance benchmarks gave the standard for MT6753 results:


With video viewing is no problem, if we confine ourselves to the rollers 720p and 1080p with bit rates up to 15 Mbit / s. No complaints, no matter how you see them from the memory card, or opened in a network player.

On the role of a classic mobile phone device copes well. Interlocutor perfectly audible already at 80% volume, and your voice is transmitted with all the nuances. The main speaker of the smartphone does not shine on the stock volume, however, it gives a clean and pleasant sound, even with a hint of bass. The vibration of average power, but energetic and silent, in a class above devices.

The sound quality of the headphones is comparable with a simple MP3-player, although many supported uncompressed formats. The sound is quite dry, deflating, and the lack of signal power at the output leads to the need to twist the volume to maximum.

Camera

The device is equipped with a main camera with 13-megapixel Sony IMX214 unit and the front five megapixel camera. For the main unit is attached dual LED flash and autofocus lens of five, which allows to count on good results with sufficient lighting.

Application for survey offers a standard minimum of functions, designed for primary use of automatic modes simple and panoramic shooting. All settings are hidden in the general menu tab, where if a picture is found an interesting thing: the main camera the maximum size corresponds to 16 megapixels, while the front - 8 megapixels. The test shots are made in these formats.

Day in bright sunny weather camera Automatic white balance correctly guesses, but always sharpens the exposure compensation in the dark areas. To cope with this nomination will help the forced exposure below zero.

The success of the survey in the room depends on the availability in the frame of bright and dark objects, because automation and are diligently doing metering dark areas. Accordingly, it is much easier to achieve high-quality images from a short distance than to capture bright and motley showcase.

In low light conditions the camera adjusts the exposure accurately, but is often mistaken with the choice of the point of focus. As a result, a good shot to get very difficult.

The results are filming close-up also depends on the lighting conditions. With a lack of light auto-focus becomes indecent slow shutter speeds up to 1 / 10s, ISO and jumps up to 800 units.


With the front-facing camera is quite a complicated story. Then set five megapixel unit that interpolates images up to 8 megapixels, but the quality of the pictures on the subjective feeling is closer to matrices one megapixel.

Nominally, the smartphone supports shooting in HDR-mode, but the specifics of metering and testing of a weak frame of contrasting sections lead to the fact that the activation mode does not affect the final frame.

Video recording is supported in Full HD resolution at 30 f / s. In special quality no complaints, except that the sound is a little below average.

Wireless connection

The device supports all major LTE frequency ranges and is equipped with two slots for micro-SIM, with a classic passive mode the two active numbers.

The range of wireless communications includes a standard set of Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0. To use navigation signals from GPS and GLONASS satellites, with on the "cold" start-up spent only 30-40 seconds.

Battery

Without a doubt, the main distinguishing feature Doogee T6 Pro - built-in battery at 6250 mAh. This unit supports fast charging is completed and the corresponding charger with 9 V and amperage 2 A full charge takes approximately two hours (1:54), whereas a simple charging at 1 A will charge the smartphone all night.

How long does this monster in the daily operation? If we take the averaged usage scenario with half an hour of calls a day, two hours web-surfing and life in social networks, even two hours of music on headphones and an hour of games, plus half an hour of the camera and viewing a pair with YouTube videos, the charge drops to zero only to evening of the third day of use. It should be noted that in this mode most of the devices hardly reach the evening, so the result is really impressive.

Also, the standard fixed-load measurements were carried out at the maximum brightness of the screen. Playing video lasted 20 hours and 37 minutes, and hour marathon game in Real Racing 3 took about 15% of the charge. Benchmark confirmed the vitality of the gadget - about 17 hours.

Results

Doogee T6 Pro - an example of affordable smartphone with a balanced hardware stuffing, smart design and ergonomics, and most importantly, amazing autonomy. Where most devices barely reach the evening, the three days without holding a meeting with the socket. And if they have to be charged, then for a brief period - fast charging with a complete battery charger completes the image of an ideal autonomy monster.
