Doogee S60 Review: New Rugged and Ultra Resistents Phone 2017

We try to always talk as much as possible of most smartphones that are launched to the market. Whether mid-range phones are sure to be a worldwide sales success, as if they are smartphones designed for a very specific niche market, we try to keep an eye on each and every one of them.

One of the brands that most emphasize is Doogee, this being a manufacturer usually ignored because it does not have the popularity of firms like Huawei or Xiaomi. Of course, this does not mean that its terminals can not be worth due to its good value for money.

In this post, we want to show you a phone known as “ultra resistants” developed by the Chinese firm Doogee. We talk about the Doogee S60 in our review, whose features we detail below.

Doogee S60: Design

The Doogee S60 in the review has a very protected body and rugged phone, leaving aside the premium design and lightness because what it looks for is to offer the greatest possible resistance, as we have seen in terminals of the mark such as the Doogee T3 or the Doogee T5. It emphasizes IP68 water and dust protection, in addition to the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen protection.

The novelty has an older version, which differs in size of the screen – it has more than half an inch. We did not compare these two smartphones, but considering that the Doogee S60 itself is quite voluminous due to the protection of the case, five inches for this gadget is the most optimal size.

The body elements – the back cover and two side ribs – are held on eight small bolts.

By default, the smartphone is very impressive design: the design is styled for the appearance of the device itself so that all the icons are redrawn in metal style. For example, the phone application received an icon in the form of a disk device. In this case, the applications themselves remained standard, only the appearance of the icons was changed.

In the firmware it is interesting to quickly access various functions: the interface has a built-in round button with a drop-down menu located on top of all applications. With its help, you can switch to the game mode (it blocks the “Menu” and “Back” buttons to exclude them accidentally pressing during gaming) and to read mode (the display always remains on).
