Doogee N20 Pro Smartphone Review: Android 10 for $120 USD

Cheap looker, strong performer. At one-tenth the price of a Samsung Galaxy or Apple iPhone, is the Doogee N20 Pro even worth your time? Though it's still unquestionably a cheaply made smartphone, there are several areas where the Doogee can be a lot better than expected considering the price.

The Doogee N20 Pro is one of the cheapest Android 10 smartphones in the market at the moment at just $120 to $200 USD. Its specifications are actually quite good on paper including its 19:9 6.3-inch FHD+ display, MediaTek P60 SoC, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB eMMC, and 16 MP rear and front cameras. A longer list of specifications can be found on its product page here. For this review, we'll be testing out some of its features to find out what cut corners lie beneath the attractive price point.

Case

The chassis is almost all plastic as one would expect from an ultra-budget smartphone. As a consequence, however, the Doogee is also a bit lighter than many alternatives including the Wiko View 5 or Honor 10X Lite. Its shorter length contributes to a smaller form factor as well without sacrificing screen size.

Accessories and Warranty

The box includes a manual, SIM pick, MicroUSB cable, protective case, and a European AC adapter. Earbuds are not included.

As with most overseas smartphone, claiming warranty will be difficult as shipping will be slow and buyers may need to pay for the return shipping as well.

Display

The 2280 x 1080 touchscreen is grainier than we would like because the pixels are underneath a thicker layer of glass or plastic. Thus, texts and images do not pop or appear as vibrant as on most other pricier smartphones. Brightness and contrast are otherwise good for the price.

Further measurements with an X-Rite colorimeter show an overly cool color temperature which is common amongst budget displays. Colors and RGB balance are way off and unnatural as a result.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
20.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10.8 ms rise
↘ 10 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 30 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
29.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15.6 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 24 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.7 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17025 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance

Raw CPU performance is almost two times better than on the Alcatel 3XXiaomi Redmi 9A or Wiko View 5 each with lower-end MediaTek Helio processors according to Geekbench. Graphics performance is even better as our Helio P60 uses a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU instead of PowerVR. Performance is still nowhere near a Snapdragon 865 or Apple A14, but such alternatives are much more expensive.

Verdict

In review: Doogee N20 Pro. Test unit provided by Doogee
In review: Doogee N20 Pro. Test unit provided by Doogee

The Doogee N20 Pro excels in performance, storage, and camera for such an inexpensive Android 10 smartphone. If you value these three attributes the most, then it'll be tough to find another 6-inch alternative that matches or beats the Doogee.

The list of drawbacks, however, are just as important. Firstly, the smartphone is not compatible with most 4G bands in the United States. Secondly, display colors are poorly calibrated for a visual experience that doesn't quite match many pricier mid-range smartphones. Meanwhile, the plastic build may be light, but it doesn't give a sense of longevity or sturdiness. The N20 Pro will still look and feel like a cheap Android smartphone despite its respectable performance and camera.

Strong performance with decent camera and storage space considering the cost. Display and build quality, however, are definitely more representative of its affordable asking price.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
