Doogee say phone makers should stop copying the iPhone and ‘diversify’


doogee f5

Doogee aren’t a company known for their most inspirational designs, but they would like to change that and say others should too by not copying the iPhone 6.

If you look back at some phones from Doogee’s past you will find a few models in their that look heavily inspired by other well known models, but Doogee now say it’s time to stop.

In an email sent to us this week Doogee say that phone makers should stop making curved phones like the iPhone 6 and diversify, and promise that these words are what have inspired them to make the angular Doogee F5;

Since the birth of iphone 6/6 plus, curved edge design has been a fashion and followed by almost every manufacturer. However, DOOGEE F5 gonna say NO.

Designs should be diversified.

The Doogee F5 (once known as the F2015) will be launched next month at the low cost of only $149.99. According to the phone maker the F5 will feature a riquidmetal chassis, 5.5-inch 1080 display, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 3000Ah battery, Mediatek MT6753 chipset and 3GB RAM.

    Doogee should keep their mouth shut and a low profile until they deliver something solid and reliable. So far they were full of..

      Yeah but so far lying about specs during a long pre-sale period worked great for them, so why stop? Dumb people will keep buying their phones, and when they’ll stop they can just change their name.

      They never did – the only solid phone they made was the hitman and it was a budget phone

            what i meant was , you said the only good phone they created , was a budget phone…

            so… all their upcoming phones … be that the F3 , F2015 or the Titan … are ALL based on the ‘budget’ range … which means , they MIGHT just strike gold again …

              agreed – the f3 is really tempting -much like their liquidmetal phone and vertu ripoff

    I actually really like the design. Really hate it when people ask is that an iphone 6? and then figure out it isn’t and act like you have a fake iphone…

    On many websites this dodgee F5 is listed with 800 and 900mhz LTE bands.
    If they deliver these bands, a low aperture phase detection autofocus and a high quality body as promised it will be one of the more popular budget phones of the year.

    Really hope this is not one of those elephone like hyped models that fails to deliver on every level.

    Also where is the dodgee f3 pro review?

      AFAIK the F3 was not released yet. I’m waiting for Doogee F3 and Zopo Speed 7 review to decide which one of them I should get. Or if I should wait further for maybe Bluboo Xtouch or another phone.

    It’s amazing how one Chinese tech company can divide a website. I’d honestly just like to see a phone get released.

    Doogee should just concentrate of making a decent phone, dont worry about what others are doing. Fix your own house, come up with a phone that doesn’t have a myriad of issues, stop lying about specs and figure out the word customer service. When your the at the bottom rung of the ladder you have no place to talk about others.

    Wow this is a beautiful phone! I hope it is real. I love “squarish” phones. That’s why I have iNew V3, DG550, Kingzone K1. But the Doogee 550’s camera is below average. I hope this one is better.
