MWC: Doogee Ibiza F2 and Ironbone models unveiled


doogee mwc

MWC attracts smartphone brands of all sizes and from all over the world and we were not surprised to see Chinese phone maker Doogee in attendance with two new models.

Doogee had their complete range of affordable Android phones on show for MWC, but it was their two latest models that we were most interested in, the Doogee Ibizia F2 and the Doogee Iron Bone DG750.

Doogee Ibizia F2

Named after the party capital of Spain, the Doogee Ibiza is an MT6732 phone with LTE, 8 mega-pixel main camera and 5 mega-pixel front camera. With only 1GB RAM and 5-inch 540 x 960 display, I imagine pricing won’t be too high, but the device does come with Mediatek’s Hotnot, and it’s all built on CNC machined alloy chassis.

Doogee Ironbone

Ironbone is a very odd name for an Android phone, but it came about as the magnesium chassis of the DG750 has been machined to give it a profile not far from a classic cartoon dog bone.

The rear of the Ironbone has a fake leather texture and under the hood we find an octacore MT6592 processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB memory. There is no LTE this time around but there is room for an SD card. Cameras are an 8 mega-pixel rear and 5 mega-pixel front.

Both of these latest Doogee phones are currently running Android 4.4 Kitkat, and we are waiting on Doogee to confirm the final release date and pricing.

Previous MWC: Huawei Mediapad X2, LTE tablet
Next Update: Xiaomi Yi Action camera listed on reseller site for $84.99

    I have owned a Doogee for about 4 months now. I bought a DG 2014 to replace my work phone. The first two months it was a very good phone with excellent build quality. And then the problems started. The phone no longer recognizes sim cards or SD Cards (a problem I have read about with several smaller brands). Customer service is non existent. I emailed the company several times and have yet to receive a response. Luckily I didn’t pay too much for this phone. I like to give smaller brands a try sometimes, Kingzone (my last work phone) for instance was excellent. Doogee not so much.

      Problem with these smaller manufacturers is the use of cheaper components in order to pare costs. Hence phone failure after very limited use. And this is where renowned manufacturer scores.

        It really just depends on the brands, well known brands aren’t without their set of problems. For instance I bought 3 OPPO phones, all of them had hardware failures within the first 3 months. On the other hand I have owned a few THL phones which had zero problems.

    I like that they’re using an alloy body, you don’t normally get that in low cost phones but I hope they’ll bring out some higher end versions with 2GB RAM and HD or full HD screens.

    Ironbone… Is this a phone for sure? Sounds more like some kind of pleasure toy for the ladies 🙂

    Doogee should try something new, like a fucking 2GB RAM phone, I would love to see a 2GB RAM Doogee phone for like $130 dollars with a MT6592 or MT6732, I don’t care about resolution nor it does like 99% of the phone users, qHD with any of those CPU would be snappy as fuck.

      Mlais M52 could be what you are looking for. 130€ on gearbest (with coupon) with mt6752. 2gb ram and 16gb rom will make these Doogees disappear immediately!

          I work in sales/marketing for a tech firm that represents Chinese/Korean electronics companies including many Chinese OEM’s.

            Cool! That is why you know your stuff. I would love to work in such an environment.

              It has its pros and cons. I get “free” phones from our clients every so often which is not bad, sometimes its a flagship model like the Nubia Z7 but a lot of times its budget phones from OEM brands. But it’s also long hours, lots of flying and dealing with customers that speak a variety of languages.

              Dude! Sounds like my dream job, I speak a variety of languages and I am a tech fiend. Suscribe me already or point me in the right direction 🙂 .

              Step 1: move to Asia. I chose Thailand but any major economic center will do. Step 2: get an MBA or similar degree, mine is in Technology Management. Step 3: network, network, network.

              In all reality I started out with a small tech firm in Thailand working as a customer service manager. Many Asian countries prefer to hire foreigners as managers. From there I bounced between a few countries till i landed here.

              Dude I thought you were gonna hook a brother up, not cool. I have a masters in EEE but don’t think I fancy an MBA on top. I am trying to start my own thing here. Would be nice to know what you think.

    At least one company knows that mobile phones have a display size of 5” or less!
    Specs are not very good, but since they are the first mobile phones revealed at MWC, they are the best so far. (Phablets are crap…)

    If Chinese brands want to be recognized in the west more they need to stop serving us all this crap.
