Doogee X95 Pro Smartphone Review: Face ID and Android 10 For $100

Just enough and nothing more. How many corners must you cut when aiming for such a low price point? Not as much as one might expect, apparently. The Doogee X95 Pro works well as a backup smartphone or even as a primary for undemanding users.

The Doogee X95 Pro is the slightly pricier version of the already inexpensive X95. For about $20 more, users are getting 2x the RAM and storage and a faster MediaTek Helio A20 processor with the X95 Pro. Everything else remains identical including the triple rear cameras, large touchscreen, and facial recognition login.

Retailers like AliExpress are offering the Doogee X95 Pro for just $80 to $100 USD to make it one of the cheapest Android 10 smartphones available.

Case

Build quality is excellent even if most of the case is plastic. The device is firm on all sides and edges with no abnormalities on our unit. It doesn't feel expensive, but it doesn't feel cheap, either.

Connectivity

Micro-USB is present instead of the more common USB-C likely to save on costs. Both charging and data are supported with no video-out feature.

Communication

Wi-Fi supports up to 802.11n only likely to save on costs. Bands are supported for T-Mobile, but note that they are not compatible with most 4G networks in the US

Accessories and Warranty

The retail box includes an AC adapter, Micro-USB cable, and the usual paperwork. Warranty might be somewhat difficult to claim as owners may need to ship overseas.

Display

The large touchscreen is better than expected and it's easily the highlight of the Doogee. Colors don't pop or appear as vivid as on a Samsung Galaxy or Apple iPhone, but they're excellent nonetheless and with a great contrast ratio as well. The slow black-white and gray-gray response times are the main drawback to this display meaning ghosting is very noticeable when scrolling through web pages or icons.

Color temperature is slightly on the cool side before any software adjustments. Color accuracy is otherwise better than expected considering the low price.

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
40.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20 ms rise
↘ 20.4 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 97 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
63.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 29.6 ms rise
↘ 33.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 97 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.1 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 14825 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance

CPU performance is very slow with Geekbench results that are about half that of the mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 662. Even subjectively, most actions come with a slight delay. Opening new Chrome tabs, pressing the Home button, loading web pages, and switching between applications are not nearly as instant as most other smartphones. Medium multi-tasking between several applications is enough to cause momentary freezes and frame rates to chug.

GPU Performance

Graphics performance is poor for gaming. Side-scrollers like Armajet run well albeit still not as smooth as we would like while 3D titles like Mario Kart Tour or PUBG Mobile are simply subpar experiences. Users who play 2D games or no games at all won't find this to be a huge issue. 1080p video playback at 60 FPS, for example, is still watchable and mostly smooth with just occasional dips in our experience.

Power Consumption

Overall power consumption is very low even when running high processing loads. We're able to record a maximum of just 3.8 W compared to almost 3x that on the OnePlus 9. Of course, the latter is also significantly faster and more expensive. The difference between minimum and maximum brightness is about 1.5 W.

Battery Life

Runtimes are excellent at almost 14.5 hours of real-world WLAN use when the display is set to 150 nits. Charging from empty to full capacity is slow, however, at several hours.

Verdict

In review: Doogee X95 Pro. Test unit provided by Doogee
In review: Doogee X95 Pro. Test unit provided by Doogee

The Doogee X95 Pro works well for light web browsing, light apps, video and music streaming, and the occasional pictures. Users will be surprised by the large display and quality of the pictures for such an inexpensive smartphone.

Unfortunately, the processor is so slow that most games and even moderate multi-tasking will bring the whole smartphone down to a crawl. If you're not a heavy smartphone user at all, then the Doogee will be appealing.

Price and availability

Overseas retailers like AliExpress have the Doogee X95 Pro on sale for about $100 USD or less. Amazon does not have it in stock as of this writing.

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.
