With the X95, Doogee brings out a new budget smartphone with some excellent specifications for a pretty competitive price. For an introduction price of just $100 bucks you get a huge display, triple back camera’s and a big battery. On top of that, you get Android 10 right out of the box!
Design and display
In terms of design, the Doogee X95 isn’t very inspiring. It has the ‘waterdrop’ screen that’s seen everywhere, rounded corners and a set of camera’s in a circular pattern on the back. Colour choices are black, blue and green. The housing is made of ‘glasslike PC’ which actually is just polycarbonate. It a glass-like plastic with high-impact strength.
The 6.52” inch 720×1600 HD display has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It’s said to be an ‘in-cell’ display, which actually is a standard that emerged back in 2012. It’s a digitized and LCD combined into a single layer to make it flatter.
Doogee X95 performance and battery life
The Doogee X95 runs on the Mediatek MT6737 quad-core chipset which is clocked at 1.3GHz. Together with 2GB of RAM memory the performance of this particular phone should be average. It’s not a game changer but will do fine for day-to-day usage. But don’t expect this phone to be a gaming device, because it definitely isn’t.
Because this phone is fitted with a pretty big 4350mAh battery we expect the battery life of the Doogee X95 to be pretty good. You should be more than able to use it for two days without charging, and might even squeeze out a third day.
The triple camera setup on the Doogee X95 seems promising, but don’t expect is to be of top quality. The biggest sensor is the 13 megapixel ‘ultra clear’ camera. Next to that you get a 2 megapixel ‘portrait’ camera and a 2 megapixel 2x tele camera. We don’t have high expectations from the whole setup. Especially the 2 megapixel sensors are a bit of a disappointment. The front facing camera is a bit better with 5 megapixels. The front camera is also used for face unlock, as the phone doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor.
Conclusion: The Doogee X95 is a nice budget smartphone, but not more than that
For $100 this is a nice package. It comes packed with some great features like a big battery, a decent screen and a decent processor. The camera’s are a bit of a disappointment but you cant get everything for a price like this. It’s a great budget smartphone, but it does have its downsides.
