4.5-inch Doogee Turbo Mini F1 with 64-bit MT6732 on pre-sale for $125


It’s tough to find a phone with decent specs and a sub-5-inch screen these days. Most makers seems to have stopped making these at all; there are, however, some which want to cater to what now seems like a niche market.

We spoke about Doogee’s Turbo Mini F1 some days back. The phone has a smaller-than-average 4.5-inch display with a 960 x 540p resolution, and is powered by the MT6732 chipset which comes from MediaTek’s crop of new 64-bit SoCs. Just to add on that, we’ve been testing the Elephone P6000 which comes with the same chipset and are highly impressed by what it is capable of!

Coming back to the Turbo Mini F1, the phone has 1GB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage and support for FDD-LTE on 800/1800/2100/2600MHz frequencies, making it an all-round device for people who’re on the move and don’t want to give up on processing prowess.

Besides that, the Turbo Mini F1 has an 8 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front camera and a rather impressive 3150mAh battery. At the moment, the phone can be pre-ordered for US$125 from China based reseller Gearbest.

      At $125, one can hardly expect such a premium feature…

          I actually already own a Doogee phone, the Turbo 2014 and its 720p screen is very good. Obviously not as good as AMOLED but for a sub $200 device I have no complaints. Comparing it side by side with my Mi4 most people can’t tell the difference. Many have guessed that the Doogee was the more expensive phone.

      Umi Zero originally cost $300 (before the massive price cuts), S5 costs over $500. This thing costs $125 and knowing Doogee it will be down to about $95 in a few months. For $125 you can’t expect much for specs.

        you right man.

    “rather impressive 3150mAh battery”. Where did you get this info? On doogee.cc it says 2000mah made by BAK and on doogeemobile i found on specs that has a 1700mah.

      Ow that’s interesting. Let me check and confirm, 3150mAh was what we spotted on the listing. Thanks!

    With it having such thick bezels I much prefer 5 inchers.

    This phone is actually smaller http://www.sharpusa.com/ForHome/Mobile/Models/AQUOSCRYSTAL-306SH.aspx

    We (people that find 5=< phones big) care about a device's dimensions, not its screen. If you have a tiny screen in the middle filled with bezels all over that's a terrible waste of space, it's actually worse to handle than a phone with bigger screen…
