Reviews for the Doogee S98 Pro

80% Doogee S98 Pro review

Doogee’s S98 Pro is an excellent option for anyone looking for a phone that’s tough enough to withstand water, dust, and anything else thrown at it (maybe even explosions), but it’s also much more than that. It’s a great Android 12 device with some very cool cameras, impressive battery life, and a bright display, and it’s easy to recommend at this price point – as long as you don’t need 5G.

70% Review: The Doogee S98 Pro is a rugged smartphone with Thermal and Night Vision
Source: Neowin English
Doogee itself says that the phone has an 18-day standby. I guess maybe in Airplane mode this would be possible, however, I did not test this. It also claims 10-hour use for constant video viewing or gaming, and 28 hours of talk time. For me, I am just happy that it can get through almost three days of normal use without needing a charger. The Easy key allowed me to map the Camera to it, so we can forgive the lack of a dedicated camera button in this case. Like I said earlier, this phone is mostly for a specific use case. I would recommend it to construction workers who find it important to have a smartphone on hand, they can toss it around and rinse it under the tap and it will still keep working. However, it is a shame that Doogee makes such a product and then will only back it with support for one year. At $399, it's a good buy, but not for the touted $599.99 MSRP. Maybe Doogee would be able to offer a better experience if it settled for a mid-range camera experience and with a higher-end SoC and display, but that's wishful thinking.

Doogee S98 Pro Review – Upgared For Smartphone With Thermal Imaging
Source: Tech X Reviews English
In short, the Doogee S98 Pro smartphone looks like it’s built to be durable in every inch. It offers average performance unless you are looking for a high-end gaming experience. The camera array on the back is of very good quality for a mid-range smartphone. More disappointing is the lack of L1 DRM support for HD streaming like Netflix, especially with the great screen, but it’s fun to watch HDR content on YouTube at FHD, and that’s not forgotten by the good battery and fast and wireless charging, and if you wonder about the InfiRay Thermal imaging Sensor, it does not give the phone that’s something special feature, But if you need it for your work and something similar or you are just curious about it, I think it’s okay. However, the S98 Pro is one of the best-rugged smartphones in 2022.

The Doogee S98 Pro is what the S98 should have been in the first place, a smartphone with a true USP. The thermal imaging camera from Infiray, combined with the IR camera, produces an unprecedented tandem in the world of rugged smartphones. Add in plenty of memory and storage and an attractive price tag and Doogee has a winner on its hands.

6.00":

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.

80.75%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
