Reviews for the Doogee Y6
Source: Mad Shrimps
The Y6 smartphone from DOOGEE comes with a really solid build construction and is also quite heavy versus other products in the same category (about 200 grams). For just 115 Euros, you are getting decent low-end to mainstream performance, a bright 5.5’’ HD display manufactured by Sharp, a responsive touch screen but also a big 3200mAh battery. For easy and more secure screen unlock you can take advantage of the fingerprint reader in the back which does work decently, increase the smartphone storage with a large microSDHC/microSHXC card or simply benefit from the Dual-SIM capabilities of the terminal.

Doogee, a Chinese phone manufacturer has just announced their brand new device, the Doogee Y6. The Y6 is a phone that has great looks, specs and comes with a cheap price tag. The phone is well built and uses an aircraft-grade aluminium back plate to add a premium look and feel. The frame and the buttons, however, are made of plastic, which feels a little out of place. The phone is about 8.5 mm thin and weighs 197 g. The Y6 features a 5.5-inch SHARP HD touchscreen, which is covered by a 2.5D curved glass with oleophobic layer. Its colors are quite vibrant and accurate. Coming with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 267 PPI, the Y6 has a pretty sharp resolution for everyday use. On the back of the Y6 is a primary 13 MP camera with LED flash and great phase detection autofocus (“PDAF”). The PDAF feature is mainly available in DSLR cameras, which assist in ultra-fast focusing. Meanwhile, the phone’s secondary camera is a front-facing 8 MP camera that sits right above the display. Not only does it have an 880 wide angle lens, which is great for taking group selfies, it also comes with pre-installed beautification functions to add a bit of touch up to the snapshots.
The Y6 features a fingerprint scanner with six functions; camera control, music control, gallery control, video control, app lock, and device unlock control. Connectivity wise, the Y6 has Dual SIM capabilities. At the heart of the phone is a non-removable 3200 mAh Lithium-ion battery, which lasts up to 6-8 hours of screen time activities on a single charge. The Y6 ships with Android v6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, but the phone’s firmware can be upgraded to newer versions of the OS in the future. However, do expect to wait for quite a long time for the promised updates as is the case of previous models. The Y6 runs on an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz, which guarantees an excellent balance between performance and power consumption in every situation. On the other hand, its graphics adapter is an ARM Mali-T860 MP2, which means that only some resource-intensive games and applications can be run on low to medium setting. The Y6 comes with 2 GB of RAM and the amount of internal storage is 16 GB. The storage capacity can be expanded by adding a MicroSD card. In view of its price and hardware, it is definitely a good mid-entry-level smartphone for the casual user.
