Doogee Y100 Pro is among the best looking entry to mid-level phones


Doogee haven’t been around for too long, but 2014 was quite a successful year for the company. Besides making some worthy original phones, Doogee also did an Mi 4 clone which seems to have gone down well with the market.

The company seems to have realized the potential the entry-level to mid-range market holds, and has thus introduced the Doogee Y100 Pro smartphone. The device combines great looks and an effective MT6735 processor, which we’re starting to see on many new phones priced in the US$100-150 range.

The Doogee Y100 Pro combines the 64-bit quad-core MT6735 with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. There’s a 13 mega-pixel camera on the rear on the device, which is paired with an 8 mega-pixel front. Most budget Chinese phones do dual SIM, and the Y100 Pro is nothing different.

The Y100 Pro should go against the Oukitel U8, which is quite a trending device for now… but this one’s cheaper (and also lacks a fingerprint sensor). So as you would imagine, the Y100 Pro is meant for buyers that are looking for stylish devices that do what they’re meant to do and not a lot more.

The phone is currently on pre-sale for US$120 on Everbuying.net, till the 5th of next month. Buyers will also get a free Xiaomi mini WiFi router with the purchase of this phone.

With Android 5.1 shipping on most MT6735 phones, do you think it is time that other MediaTek chipsets also get the latest Android updates?

    lol forgetting to mention screen size and res seems to be contagious here , usually other writers do that.
    Since other readers must be wondering about that too, it seems to be 5 inch 720p. Guess it competes with things like the Elephone P6000 not so much with the Oukitel U8.

      Given the render it looks to be about a 5 incher and i would be shocked if it’s anything above 720p.

    I am interested in this phone for a few weeks, but there is no any hands on video for now and I want to see it. 🙂

    Just like the Doogee website, no mention of screen size !!

    It looks great and sounds good on paper but let’s see how it performs in real life. Hopefully Doogee’s mistakes were that of a new company and they start building quality phones. What concerns me is the camera, past 13mp sensors used by Doogee have either been interpolated messes or really cheap sensors.

    As for your question at the end. I have been using Lollipop on a few devices for a few months now and its an absolute train wreck of an OS. This is one of the worst versions of Android I have ever used. I actually downgraded on my both our tablets (mine old Nexus 7, hers new Nexus 7) because it turned them into glorified paper weights.

      That’s true I prefer a good Jelly Bean instead Lollibugs, just update my Xiaomi Mi3 to KitKat because MiBand

        Jelly Bean was and still is my favorite version of Android.

    This is actually the 6735M, as it is clocked at 1.0 Ghz, so don`t expect great performance here, general experience should be even worse than the Redmi2. This SoC with 2GB of RAM is just pointless, as the CPU can`t handle intense apps/games.

      To be fair there aren’t meany budget SoC’s that can handle intense apps/games, they aren’t designed for that. The normal version of the 6735 and the SD 410 both struggle with anything graphically intense as well. An extra 1GB of RAM provides a lot more benefits than just for gaming though. Even people who never play games will notice a difference in the performance of the phone with the extra 1GB.

        The 6735, although running at 1.0Ghz will handle games allot better than the S410, because of the better Mali MP720MP3, the Adreno 306 is basically an optimized 305, there’s barely any difference there. On the other hand the Mali 720MP3 provides a much needed boost compared to MTK’s previous budget SoC(6582). It`s safe to say that the 6735 wipes the floor in terms of graphics horsepower with the S410. Although more RAM is always better, the CPU performance at 1 Ghz and the S410 at 1,2Ghz is not nearly enough for efficient multitasking, with or without the extra RAM.

          Depends on what we are using as the baseline of multitasking. That word in itself means many different things to many different smartphone users. For the mere basics of web browsing, social media and camera use it is efficient. For gaming or using performance apps it is not.

    The Xiaomi gadget is not the router, but an usb access point, who just spreads the wifi of the pc. The Doogee Y100 Pro looks very good for a mid mobile, but can be found at Coolicool as mentioned for 119.99$, 1$ cheaper.
