In it you will find itself smartphone charger with the stated amperage of 700 mA, USB-cable, and Doogee user manuals.

Let us turn to the outside of the smartphone form.

At the bottom we see only the microphone on the top - a standard 3.5mm headset jack and Micro-USB for charging and data transfer.

On the back panel of the camera and the manufacturer has arranged a one-LED flash. At the bottom of the rear panel you will find the manufacturer's logo and the net external speaker holes beneath.

Also present expandable memory via Micro-SD cards. Puts on the back cover, as well as remove, easily and without any problems.

The smartphone weight is 185 grams. Shell thickness of about 9.5 mm. Due to the rounded ends of the device in your hand it is quite convenient. With regard to the overall impression of the design of the smartphone, then, in our opinion, it is quite normal. Anyway, it is better than its predecessor (Doogee X5).

Next we move on to discuss the technical part of the smartphone, beginning, according to tradition, with the display.

Display

Display size of Doogee X6 is 5.5 inches, resolution - HD. The matrix is made on IPS technology, but, unfortunately, the screen is made without the use of OGS technology: between the cover glass and the screen has a layer of air. The viewing angles are quite wide, but under certain inclinations matrix illuminates.

In the test program AnTuTu Multitouch display Doogee X6 showed support for 2 simultaneous touches. If we consider the fact that, in principle, a good display in front of us the representative of the budget class.

Interface

Doogee X6 is running a Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with proprietary shell from producer. Oleophobic coating on the screen is missing, and in general it can be said that the sensitivity of the touch screen is not impressive. Touch buttons perform standard actions "menu Call", "Home" and "Back". Double-swipe down from the status bar (the area at the top of the screen) you open the Quick Launch bar of different functions.

Consider some the smartphone menus. For example, in "About phone" you will find a wireless update feature. In the settings themselves, you can note the presence of «SOS» function, the guest mode and the presence of various smart functions, namely, motion gestures, hitless flipping desks, galleries and so on. D. There is also the possibility of awakening the smartphone using double tapa. To transfer data to another device, you can use only Bluetooth.

Testing the performance

Over the operation of the device corresponds to 4-core 32-bit processor MT6580 clocked at 1.3 GHz. The amount of RAM in our smart phone is 1GB, while the volume of internal storage is 8 GB, of which the user can use a little more than 5 GB. In the test program Antutu v6.0 smart phone Doogee X6 usual number of points scored - 24417. With regard to test 3D graphics in Epic Citadel programs and 3DMark, smart phone also features the usual results.


Next, we tested the smartphone heat. To this end, we launched the smartphone game Asphalt 8 and played for about 10 minutes. For the test, we used the average picture settings and the game on the network. As expected, the smartphone copes image on medium settings with the game without any problems, but when the game has been noticeable poor performance stitch. With regard to the heating after 10 minutes, it can be said that the smartphone is heated to a moderate level, as shown pyrometer maximum temperature is about 45 ° C. Basically the processor from Mediatek MT6580 we are already familiar, so from it should hardly expect anything new.

Built-in sensors

Verify what the built-in sensors equipped company Doogee model X6. So, on board the the smartphone are: accelerometer, light sensor and proximity sensor. In our opinion this set of sensors is quite enough for a smartphone in this price segment.

GPS navigation

After a cold start without connecting to the Internet Doogee X6 is connected to the satellite for 1 minute, but the cold start Kolo lasted 3 minutes. In general, GPS works, but during our testing of his work was not entirely stable. Most likely, this is due to the software flaw.

Camera

According to the manufacturer the back camera is 5 megapixels, front - 2nd. The camera interface is quite standard, there is a panorama mode, "beautiful face", the activation of HDR mode, and so on. Volume button serves as a shutter button. Program the maximum photo size is 8 megapixels. But we all know that this interpolation, and the actual size of the photo is 5 megapixels. The actual maximum HD resolution video recording, but during testing software device displays video resolution of Full HD. It is worth noting that a similar situation could be observed in the smartphone Homtom HT6. In principle, the main camera smartphone Doogee X6 does not particularly impressive, despite the fact that it is state employees. At the same precursor, smartphone Doogee X5, the main camera, the quality is much better.

Here are examples of pictures taken with the rear camera in the daytime and at night.

Battery life

Next, consider the battery life device. Recall that the battery in this model is a removable the smartphone and to the manufacturer of its capacity is 3000 mAh. In the battery test using AnTuTu Battery Test program with a discharge of 80% smart phone scored almost 6000 points, and the result is impressive.

Measured using a special USB-tester Doogee X6 battery capacity was 2700 mAh. In this regard, Doogee company decided not to change their traditions and as always lied about the real capacity of the battery, but in principle the autonomy of his work is not bad. To charge this smartphone will have approximately once per day.

Sound

We checked the volume of the external speaker using a sound level meter and can confidently say that this indicator of the smartphone Doogee X6 everything is in order. Next, we conducted a test sound in the headphones. Those who expect a good sound in the headphones, let's face it, it is not impressive. It is clear that this is a budget model and the sound in the headphones a priori can not be cool, however, we could not help but pay attention to it.

Results

In recent years, our studio was visited by a large number of budget devices. I'd love to test any leader, but so far nothing interesting on the market does not come out. Why settle for those innovations that we provide Chinese manufacturers. As for the the smartphone Doogee X6, we believe that it is worth the money.
