Doogee BL5000 Review: Long-playing smartphone like Honor 9

The main problem of modern smartphones is due to the fact that the large display resolution and processor powers are intensively eating out the battery. As a result, autonomy hardly transcends in one day. Doogee company is one of the Chinese brands that started to produce hardy gadgets with capacious batteries, ready to work day and night. Today we’re going to review a long-playing smartphone Doogee BL5000.

Doogee BL5000: Design

The glitter seems inherent in this family of terminals, whose last member also wears glass having that “patent leather” finish away from other more discreet bets with the matte finish. All in all, you are someone who is not at all a big fan of the glass and the shiny finish, and the result is what fits quite elegant (and, although for tastes, colors, at least this bluish gray remains a terminal beautiful).

What is more discreet and for good is the integration of the double rear camera. Here we will not have to outgo as in the iPhones, but a discrete integration both at the surface and design level. Something we already saw in the P10, but in this case, there is no strip of color or shading or a space delimited as in the LG G6, in which they also do not protrude. With this you gain a little more peace of mind when resting the terminal on a surface, besides that, we can care more or less this aspect.

The slight curve at its side edges helps to thin a bit that 10.3 millimeters, a thickness that would not really be necessary to disguise and that contributes to how comfortable the terminal in hand.

This metallic back finish in a slight curve in its lateral edges that helps to thin a bit those 10.3 mm, a thickness that would not really be necessary to disguise and that contributes to how comfortable the terminal in hand, next to the absence of right angles or too sharp (“sharp”). It is solid and is not the lightest terminal of this size, but it is not heavy and not being wide or excessively high does not tire us either in terms of stretching the thumb.

As for the compactness of its dimensions and construction is in line with other similar sized smartphones, but there have done better work others like Xiaomi Mi5, less high, wide, thick and light and with a better use of front by Part of the screen (73.1% Mi5 versus 70% Doogee BL5000).

With touch buttons, we have had a good experience. It is convenient that the tap-sensitive area is not limited to the point that is illuminated by touch, but covers virtually the entire surface between screen, fingerprint reader and edge (for each button) so that we can click blindly. But at the same time, this causes a lot of accidental touches, and let’s go back or deploy the multitasking with the base of the hand unwittingly.

Touch feeling of Doogee BL5000 is on a more subjective side and we may like it more or less, but what you have to keep in mind is that it is slightly slippery. It does not escape in an uncontrolled way, but it must also be taken into account when supporting it on a surface with the slightest inclination (the phone sneaks off and the outcome may be an unexpected and apparently incomprehensible fall).

Doogee BL5000: Screen

The numbers are not everything and not much less and sometimes no higher figure there is better result talking about electronics, and Doogee BL5000 comes out well standing at the 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution on its 5.5 inch IPS screen. As we are accustomed to saying, this is an acceptable level of resolution and does not miss more detail, although it may not satisfy those users more demanding or more sensitive in terms of it.

The auto brightness setting does not work well at all, having a problem in low light situations where it is self-adjusting too low. This erratic behavior can play a trick on us if, for example, we use the mobile as a navigator in the car and we are driving at night since the visibility gets worse (and we have to stop to adjust the brightness).

Doogee BL5000: Hardware and Performance

We have a similar configuration to the Doogee BL5000, with the same processor in the house and variable RAM depending on the model. In ours were 4 GB of RAM that accompanied the MTK6750T and its Octa cores.

Doogee BL5000 deploys multitasking without lag and the same with the execution of demanding video games.

This hardware of Doogee BL5000 is more than enough to move both simple and heavy apps without problems, one of them being the system itself (we’ll describe in the next section). Doogee BL5000 deploys the multitasking without lag, and the same with the execution of demanding video games like the Asphalt 8 (talking mainly about the screens of configuration, which is what it experiences stops and is hooked if the hardware is less powerful).

We will have to learn to coexist with the heat, especially if we are not used to it.

We’ve only experienced lag in writing (using Swiftkey, which comes by default, with Google’s occurring to a lesser extent) and pulls timeline type apps like Instagram. And the split screen (which is activated by continuously pressing the multi tasking touch button) also runs smoothly.

That yes, opt for the metal and glass in the construction is to favor the conduction of the heat and to put it difficult to the relatively little that can be done in chassis and electronic of millimeters of thickness by refrigerating. The normal thing is that we do not delay in perceiving some warm up on the top of the terminal, which with little we use will extend to the whole back (talking about low or medium requirement apps like social networks).

Obviously, it will be worse the more intense the use, mainly if we reproduce music with the loudspeakers, multimedia content in general, video games or the camera. It is not annoying or exaggerated unless we play or use the camera for 10 or 15 minutes uninterruptedly, there the upper edge (where the camera is) gets too hot, especially now in summer.

However, in spite of this warm-up that accompanies us in a fairly usual way, the mobile runs the applications without slowing down even when we have these peaks of temperatures that do begin to be somewhat annoying in the grip. If we are to use the sheath, we will avoid this annoyance and perceive that slight temperature increase when using less demanding apps.

On the operation and use the comment that the fingerprint reader is always latently active and that we can unlock the screen with it without having to activate the screen (and it is not pressed, it is fixed), and it is also the ” close”. It is quite sensitive and works quickly, although sometimes it is somewhat demanding with the amount of surface of the footprint that is used.

For those of you who like to take the benchmarks as a reference, we put the results of the most common tests of Doogee BL5000, comparing them with other similarly configured phones.

Doogee BL5000: Software

Doogee BL5000 dresses to Android 7.0 Nougat of the own software EMUI in its version 5.1, that changes the appearance, the configuration and the services for good and for bad.

Something we like is that the layer that develops Huawei allows us to choose the layout of the apps, being able to opt for an application drawer if we prefer to have them all on the desktop. We can also customize the notifications curtain shortcuts, as well as these same and aspects that it is not always possible to configure like the one we mentioned above of the screen temperature.

What do not we like? I impose it, and more when it interferes with our users by making it worse. For example, we can not remove apps that are automatically installed without being even the home, such as Google, or that we are forced to grant permissions to our own apps that we may not want to use, such as Reminders (if We put “Cancel” asks us again, without option to not show it again and accept as the only alternative).

Doogee BL5000: Cameras

The Doogee BL5000 already integrated the double camera in the last edition, but this is the first occasion in which they make the best of their cousins the Huawei with one of the sensors monochrome.

What we have specifically in Doogee BL5000 are two sensors, 13 and 13 megapixels, the monochrome being the first, which also gives the option of 2x hybrid zoom.

I always like to count the use of the camera stripping both the result of the set of lenses and processing as the options given by the app, and in this case is not going to be an exception, much less because Doogee (which is the one that incorporates Doogee of native way) is one of the more options gives.

So let’s first see what possibilities Doogee BL5000 offers and in what lenses.

Doogee BL5000: Battery

Although in certain aspects we leave the numbers more aside, the volume of the battery and milliamps/hour are determinant in the autonomy of the terminal (along with software and performance) and in Doogee BL5000 we have 5500mAh in that 10.3 mm thick. Enough? Yes, but perhaps too fair.

With an average use by pulling to intensive (times of multi media reproduction and punctual consultation to social networks), the Doogee BL5000 supports us the day, especially if we are under wifi connection. If we take the camera autonomy will be reduced in a more striking way, so if we think spending several moments taking pictures maybe compensate us to carry an external battery or the charger for an extra contribution (which will ask us in the afternoon, well before ending the day).

Doogee BL5000: Conclusion and Reviews

The Doogee BL5000 poured into the light, beautifully “playing” with reflections, slightly reminiscent of the Chinese flagship Honor 9. The gadget’s screen is protected by the 3D glass with a more pronounced bend in comparison with the 2.5D-coating. This and the rounded edges on the back cause associations with the unusual Honor Magic. Doogee can be praised for the interesting design of a vertical dual camera with a flash between the lenses.
