Doogee releases Doogee Valencia 2 Y100


The original Doogee Valencia was such a success that Doogee has already released the second incarnation of the device. Ladies and gentlemen the Doogee Valencia 2 Y100, a brightly coloured phone with some interesting features.

The good old DG800 was a phone with a nice design and a rear touch sensor, it was released during a time where every phone was as generic as they could possibly be. The sequel hits the same points in design and features, and brings along some much needed spec bumps along with it.

The rear of the Doogee Valencia 2 Y100 has a nice textured look that should give the phone more grip and make it easier to hold without it slipping out of your hand. The rear is removable and comes in 6 different colours, including pink, blue, green, yellow, black and white. It also supports rear touch similar to the Oppo N1 and original Doogee DG800. The next surprise is at the left side of the phone, where three LED lights can be found. All three LEDs are multi-coloured and can be programmed to work with any application for notification duties.

The processor in the Valencia 2 is an older MTK6592m processor clocked at 1.4GHz paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. The display is a 5-inch IPS unit with a HD resolution of 1280 x 720 and is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. On the rear, there’s a 13MP Sony camera with an aperture of f/2.0, while the front camera is an 8MP OV unit. The phone has space for 2 sim cards, but unfortunately neither one supports LTE, leaving us with WCDMA instead. All this is powered by a 2200mAh battery with fast charging feature.

There’s support for microSD cards of up to 64GB, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, Hotknot, Xender 2.0, USB OTG and FM radio, as well as Wi-fi (802.11ac/a/b/g/n) It comes pre-installed with Doogee’s own custom UI called DOOGEE OS, which is based on Android 4.4.4 Kitkat. The phone’s dimensions are 142.5 x 71.4 x 8.25mm, and it weighs in at 148g.

So what do you think? A worthy successor to the original Valencia? Or is the old MTK6592m deterring you?

    “Or is the old MTK6592m deterring you?”

    What is wrong with MTK6592m? Definitely better than MTK6582 (and I thought they would go with MTK6582 since this is budget phone).

      Nothing’s wrong with MTK6592M, it just pales in comparison to the newer MTK6732.

        Yes, but still better than MTK6582. Since this is budget phone, they could easily go with MTK6582.

          The problem is most budget phones now are using a 64 bit chip either the Snapdragon 410 or the MT6732. Some are even starting to offer 2GB of RAM.

          Let me break it down for you. Here’s a simple and easy way to understand this problem.

          MTK6582 = Dry, stale bread.

          MTK6592 = Normal bread.

          MTK6732 = Fruit cake.

          Now let’s say a shop sells both the Normal bread and the fruit cake for the same price. Which would you rather go for? The normal bread, or the fruit cake?

          That’s just how it is. Sure the MTK6592 isn’t as bad as MTK6582, but it’s not as good as other similarly priced propositions.

            LOL, I know everything about it, you didn’t need to go into the details. Of course MTK6732 is the best solution, but since this is chean phone, it is good that they avoided MTK6582 and MTK6592 is very good choice. And MTK6592 is faster than MTK6532.

              MTK6532 doesn’t exist.

              I was thinking about MTK6732, typo.

            Fruit cake is gross, I would skip all three and get a chocolate cake! MMM cake…

            But for a processor I would go with 6732.

    They should never come up with a phone named “Style”.

    • April 28, 2015

      What kinda lame comment is this? Do you have an eye problem or what? Did you read the word “STYLE” anywhere in “Doogee Valencia 2 Y100”

      If you dont have any worthy contribution to make to the post, why dont you just shut your trap and walk away?

          It’s probably that the entire article doesn’t mention anything about style. At all.

    I’ve seen the camera listed as a IMX219 which I think is 8MP, so probably interpolated.

    6592m is a REAL deterrent !

  5. balcobomber25

    I am willing to bet this is one of the Sonny Camera’s that are really 8mp (maybe even 5) interpolated to 13. The past few Doogee phones with a 13mp camera have been anywhere from terrible to good. Never on the level on real Sony sensors though.

    Doogee as failed to launch a interesting phone in several months, I don’t see them lasting long.

      Apple hasn’t launched an interested product in years, but they’re still doing OK 😉

    ‘The phone has space for 2 sim cards, but unfortunately neither one supports LTE’ LOL. well this is dead on arrival. Shame I think the styling looks ok for a budget phone.

    The phone is really good, I have Doogee DG580 ( full review http://www.phonespal.com/doogee-dg580-review/ ) but I must say the dg580 is very small better.
