Doogee Mix 2 Review: Bezel-Less Phone with 6GB of RAM and Helio P25

Doogee is a brand known for its low-cost smartphones that it sells on various online marketplaces and high-tech specialist sites. I had already had the opportunity to test the Doogee Mix, although performing on certain points, these all-plastic smartphones were not unanimous question design.

The Doogee Mix 2 in our review inverse complement the trend! Here, it is clearly the design that is honored with a bezel-less screen, plastiverre faces more elegant than ever and an exemplary finesse. What’s more, in this variant Aurora Blue, I find this Doogee Mix 2 beautiful! Here is his detailed review.

Where Doogee makes the difference with his big brother from Xiaomi is SoC’s question. Indeed, if Xiaomi chose a set of components Qualcomm, Doogee remains faithful to its traditions and will instead look for a low-cost founder: Mediatek. Though, in this version with MediaTek’s Helio P25 processor 2.5 GHz with 6 of RAM + 128 GB, it does not really look like a low-cost!

Doogee Mix 2: Design and Appearance

It is clearly in terms of design that the Doogee Mix 2 marks the difference with its predecessors! If the images announce a smartphone with the screen borders reduced to the maximum.

The reality is almost as tempting with frankly thin side edges and superior passing any other smartphone for old fashioned in a second.

Of course, there is indeed a black margin of about a millimeter around the screen when lit but this does not spoil the Bezel-less experience of the Doogee Mix 2 . I just love it!

The screen occupies almost 90% of the front panel. This score is to be compared with the edges, very thin on each side but also at the top.

As a result, ultra-thin screen borders oblige, the video camera is found at the bottom right. Initially, this is a bit of a rough start, but it’s fast: You have to hold the smartphone upside down to make selfies!

The physical button at the bottom, in the center, inspired by Samsung models, is actually a touch button (it does not sink under pressure) and houses the fingerprint sensor.

On the bottom edge there is a pair of orifices but only one contains a loudspeaker. The other port houses the microphone for calls.

On the left side, there is a hatch giving access to the SIM slots. This phone accepts a SIM Nano and a Micro SIM simultaneously.

On the right side are the volume and on/off buttons. Note that it is possible to wake the smartphone by double-tap on the screen.

On the back, we find one of the other peculiarities of this smartphone, its dual photo sensor accompanied by an LED flash. The first sensor is a ƒ2.0 wide angle aperture model from Samsung with a 16 megapixel resolution plus 13 megapixel camera. The other sensor is an 8-megapixel plus 8-megapixel model to simulate a bokeh (background blur).

Weight question, the Doogee Mix 2 in test is not the lightest since it exceeds 210 grams! This is probably due to its enormous 4060mAh battery and its metal chassis.

Overall, the Doogee Mix 2 enjoys a careful presentation and beautiful finishes. The blue color “Aurora Blue” makes its small effect but it is of course the screen borders that contribute to give this Doogee Mix 2 all its attractiveness.

If this smartphone comes from a brand that has built its reputation on low-cost, this Doogee Mix frankly marks the difference and is truly Premium.

Doogee Mix 2: Screen

For his screen, the Doogee Mix 2 in analisis had the good idea to use the AMOLED. And to further raise the level a little, he went straight to draw in the bank of Samsung components!

As a result, this smartphone offers a high-quality visual experience with vibrant colors, an ultra wide field of view, infinite contrast ratio and blacks of abysmal depth.

Where it’s fishing, maybe it’s at the definition level. Indeed, this Doogee Mix 2 offers nice FHD+ resolution of 1080 by 2160pixels for a diagonal of 5.99 inches. The density of pixels is at the top of 403ppi. The screen is so contrasted, the images appear very detailed and valued.

Also note that the maximum brightness level is rather good. I did not encounter any problem to use the smartphone outdoors.

An option in the settings allows to adjust the brightness automatically and this is done quite well.

Doogee Mix 2: Hardware and Performance

For its high-end model, Doogee trusted one of the market leaders, Mediatek. Although this founder is best known for its cheap chips equipping the first price terminals, it must be admitted that its latest CPUs have everything great!

In this Doogee Mix 2 there is a set of powerful components that will turn all applications, even the heaviest but also the latest games, into a hassle. While the CPU is a 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 processor clocked at up to 2.6GHz, the graphic part is entrusted to an iGPU Mali T880 clocked at 900 MHz.

All this would be nothing without the 6GB of RAM of my test version and using DDR4 chips. The result is a terminal that overflows with power. Without being the most powerful of the moment, this smartphone manages to offer high level performance, even in the gourmet 3D games.

Doogee Mix 2: Interface and Software

Doogee had accustomed me to deliver his smartphones free of any overcoat. If the Doogee Mix does not succumb to the fashion of the Launchers which completely inhibit Android.

It is nevertheless worth noting many additions in Launcher Doogee like the possibility of changing the theme (dozens are downloadable for free).

Display modes depending on your usage, possible use with one hand, the ability to launch applications by drawing letters on the screen in standby.

Thanks to the 8-core CPU running at 2.39 GHz and the 6GB of RAM in my version, navigation in menus is always extremely fluent. All the applications that I have installed as Benchmark utilities have always been launched quickly and it is even possible to open several heavy applications without the slightest crash.

It should also know that this mobile embeds Samsung RAM in DDR4. This not only benefits the autonomy since this type of memory consumes much less but it also benefits the fluidity since this type of memory is much faster than the DDR3.

Doogee Mix 2: Cameras

On the photo side, Doogee also had the good taste to go and use at Samsung! So on this Doogee Mix 2 in review, there is a dual sensor Samsung Isocell 16 + 13 Megapixels with autofocus, ƒ2.0 opening and LED flash.

The focus is ultra fast. The camera is capable of recognizing faces to geotagg the photos.

The photo application offers a very simple ergonomics. Too much maybe to my liking since there is no manual mode nor scene modes. We have to settle for an HDR mode.

The advantage of the dual sensor is the ability to create beautiful background blur. Indeed, with a little mastery, we manage to create quality shots but from there to compete with a reflex equipped with ultra-bright optics, there is a world.

The fact remains that this 16 megapixel sensor behaves very well and provides sharp and colorful shots. You can judge for yourself with these photos taken by the Doogee Mix 2!

Doogee Mix 2: Battery and Autonomy

Question autonomy, the Doogee Mix 2 comes out with praise!

Its accumulator displays a respectable capacity of 4060 mAh that will be easy to recharge with the supplied 5V 2A quick charger. It is possible to recharge the battery to 70% in 30 minutes!

Once charged at 100%, this smartphone is capable of providing up to 11 hours of video playback, Wifi enabled! If this score does not speak to you, know that in traditional use, this smartphone allows to hold much more than a day.

I have several times finished with 60% of remaining autonomy and I even managed to hold 2.5 days using the Doogee Mix 2 reasonably. This score ranks the Doogee Mix 2 among the best students.

Doogee Mix 2: Conclusions and Reviews

This is a smartphone Doogee Mix 2 in our review will leave no one indifferent. If it is the mid-range phone with good FHD+ screen, especially given the price.

Indeed, for a “reasonable” budget about $200, you have here a powerful smartphone, the look very worked, the finishing Premium and the screen AMOLED Samsung globally very good.

What is particularly striking about this model is the integration of the borderless screen (Bezel-less) and which provides a real feeling of luxury for a fraction of the price of a high-end model of a major brand.
