Reviews for the Doogee BL5000

78.3% Doogee BL5000 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
High-grade budget smartphone. On paper, the Doogee BL5000 has everything that an entry-level smartphone could ever dream of: a big battery, a high-resolution camera, lots of storage and a reasonably fast processor all at the entry-level price-point of 130 Euros (~$151). But can it also live up to high expectations?

Overall, I got the feeling that this phone was not quite finished, and there was work to do on the UI and features before it was complete.

Doogee BL5000 Review
Source: Yugatech English version
Doogee’s BL5000 is an attempt to providing consumers a solid daily driver that has a nice look, premium build, dual rear cameras, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, and a large battery. However, some of these features just fail to hit it out of the ballpark like the under-utilized dual rear cameras and its poor blur effect and the weird battery management. On the bright side, it doesn’t ask much at Php8,999. We just hope that Doogee can iron out its flaws to make it stand out from the competition.

DOOGEE BL5000 Smartphone Premium Design with Big Battery Review in Details
Source: Igeekphone English version
The Doogee BL5000 is a smartphone for those who appreciate the uniqueness of devices but are not ready to deny themselves a large battery and good hardware stuffing. Choose this phone, the cost of which is about $150, will definitely be for design. And there can not be contradictions here. As in our review for battery consumption. One full charge of the battery will be enough for 12 hours of viewing the video through the player or for two days of work with moderate loads. That was the review Unit ” DOOGEE BL5000 “! Offered Sabrina, From Doogee, Thank you very much. If you want to buy go on Lightinthebox and Get in Best Price.

Doogee is well known for producing solid all-rounder smartphones and the BL5000 is no exception. The BL5000 is another budget-friendly smartphone that’s been armed with a dual-camera setup (13MP + 13MP). It promises 2x times lossless zoom as well as a professional Bokeh effect mode to blur out the background. The Doogee BL5000 is certainly an interesting smartphone to grapple with. It’s no featherweight at 210 grams but there’s a reassuring sturdiness to the phone. The layer of Gorilla Glass 5 that’s been plonked on top certainly adds the thickness of phone (10.3mm). In terms of build quality, the side buttons are seated firmly, there’s a good vibration motor and the phone feels like a solid slab that isn’t going to break anytime soon. The battery cover has a super-reflective pearlescent design that really makes the BL5000 stand out. The 1080P (1080×1920) display is crisp and vivid, whites are neutral and viewing angles are good. Outdoors in direct sunlight, the screen performed exceptionally and was still easily viewable after turning the brightness up to full. The front of the screen curves a lot and creates a bubble-like surface that somehow feels retro in a good way. The Doogee BL5000 is one of the first phones to come pre-installed with Doogee UI 1.0, their own custom Android 7 software overlay. It also adds a local news feature on the left screen similar to Samsung’s own custom launcher. A couple of other software features hard-baked into the BL5000 are Screen Recording, available from the pull-down menu and also Eye Protection which reduces blue light.


While the MediaTek MT6750T is a low-end CPU it’s still fast enough to provide a responsive Android 7 experience. It’s been coupled with 4GBs of RAM and a decent 64GB of storage to help keep things running smoothly. In terms of gaming, it’s got the mid-range Mali-T860 MP2 which runs almost all Android games on medium or high graphics smoothly. Whilst gaming on the BL5000 it did warm up slightly, but not to an uncomfortable level. Thanks to the power efficient CPU and 5050mAh battery, it can power through a whole day very easily. This is an area where the BL5000 excels. The BL5000 has fast charging built-in and a 2amp fast charger included in the box. However, the battery is non-removable, which is a shame as the rear cover is plastic and would have been easy to implement. Also in the box, a user will find a standard Micro-USB cable, SIM pin, Instruction manual, warranty card, 2 amp fast charger 3.0 and another stupidly small screen protector. There’s also a clear plastic case that has port covers built in for the headphone jack and power port. The BL5000 is Doogee attempt to penetrate the mid-range dual camera market. This competes directly with the Xiaomi mi A1 and Huawei’s Nova 2i. However, the MediaTek processor and the custom OS might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.
