Model: The Doogee Y300 is an affordable dual sim supported smartphone with good hardware specifications. It features the MediaTek MT6735 Quad Core CPU, 2 GB of RAM, an ARM Mali-T720 GPU and 32 GB of internal storage. The storage capacity can be expanded by up to 32 GB via the microSD slot. As for the display, the Doogee Y300 features a capacitive 5-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which is protected by Corning gorilla glass. A 720p resolution is quite low for today’s standards but good enough for basic users. It isn’t bright enough for usage under direct sunlight but is very usable under normal lighting conditions. The screen has a curved 2.5D design to eliminate the sharp edges between screen and frame for more comfortable holding sensation.
Besides the screen, the smartphone’s glass metal frame is also designed with curved 2.5D design and built with corning gorilla glass. This is very similar to the aesthetics adapted by Samsung’s Galaxy S series. There are no capacitive buttons at the bottom of the screen because the Doogee Y300 uses on-screen buttons which gives it a very clean looking appearance. It comes in three different colors to choose from, which are black, white and champagne. As for the camera, the Doogee Y300 features a primary camera of 8.0 MP with flash. It is software interpolated up to 13 MP and capable of capturing 1080p video at 30 fps. The front camera of the smartphone is a 5.0 MP camera which is also software interpolated up to 8.0 MP. According to Doogee, with software interpolation, pictures will turn out better in color reproduction and white balance, resulting in sharper and finer pictures. In addition, HDR shooting mode provides a better dynamic range of brightness values. However, in practice, this recipe isn’t good enough to replace a camera with higher megapixel. Photos taken by both of these cameras are still low on details and aren’t even close to that of a normal phone camera.
The Doogee Y300 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and features their tailor-made UI to offer a more customised look on the user interface. It can support multi-language up to 48 different languages which are convenient to users all around the world to use. The Doogee Y300 has a battery capacity of 2200 mAh, which is capable of delivering about 2-3 days of standby time. Sensors built in include an accelerometer, an ambient light sensor, a gravity sensor and proximity sensor. The Doogee Y300 is a good mid range smartphone for the less demanding users but its biggest downside is its camera. For around the same price, there are many other options out there such as the Xiaomi Redmi 3.
