iNew started the trend for great looking, high performance Android phones this year, and the trend has continued to evolve in to devices like the new DOOGEE DG800 Valencia
The DOOGEE DG800 Valencia is set to launch in a few days and is another example of what Chinese phone makers pull off on a budget if they really put their mind to it.
On the surface the DOOGEE DG800 is similar to many other phones and features a 4.5-inch display, quad-core MT6582 processor and dual-sim support, but it is in the details where the DG800 really shines.
Cameras on the DG800 are an 8 mega-pixel front unit with 88 degree wide angle, and 13 mega-pixel rear camera with LED flash. Also on the rear is a built-in touch panel (similar to the Oppo N1) making the already compact phone even more friendly to one handed operation.
DOOGEE have been smart enough to give the DG800 a 4.5-inch panel with a resolution of 960 x 540, yes there are higher res panels out their but at this size the viewing quality won’t be effected. Another smart move is the use of Android 4.4.2 Kitkat on the quad-core phone with 1GB RAM.
Gizchina News of the week
A 2000mAh removable battery, Bluetooth 4.0, WIFI 802.11b/g/n, and GPS all wrapped up in a colourful 135 x 66.8 x 8.2mm body make up the rest of the specification.
Fortunately for customers outside of China DOOGEE are one of the few brands which market their phones to international markets. Some sites are already offering the DOOGEE DG800 for presale and DOOGEE have told us that the phone will cost just $120 (internationally) once launched.
- DOOGEE have more phones on the way so keep posted for more DOOGEE news here.
I might have to buy a few of these lol
Quite an exciting little phone isn’t it
Yep especially coming with 4.4 out the box!!
OMG nice low cost with android 4,4 on mediatek , finally a new chinese phone with android kitkat , nice news.
other chinese brands updating and release phones with kitkat 3..2…1… LOL
How is the quality of their phones – has anyone tried them?
I have the dg2014 and the build quality and hardware is excellent. The phone delivers what the company claims. It is very thin at about 7mm.
Thank you for your feedback – I will buy one 🙂
Had one too and was disappointed with the quality, sold it and bought a zopo zp780 instead.
You need upgrade your list Andy! 😉
Doogee seems to a level head on its shoulders ..balanced config..nice.hope cam is good.
How needy is that touch pad on the back ? I understand that it doesn’t cost much and we might see more cheap phones with that it future, but is there any real world use with it or just gimmick ?
I never used the one on the Oppo N1, perhaps others did though
I kind of like the brand name. But i know many people who won’t buy the phone just because of this.
Even Kitkat 4.4.2 lacks many very useful features which are there in many Ui s . Say for example ,for an IMAP mail account , while deleting an email , in Htc sense , we have a choice to set whether that mail should be deleted from the server or not when deleted from the phone.
I fail to understand why google geeks are not able incorporate these kind of many useful features .
Andy, is there any way I can root my dg800 without flashing the ROM. I really need it rooted. frama vroot iroot root master rootgenius all failed. please man help me out.
