Doogee F3 wins Best Mobile Design of 2015 at MIIT

All smartphone manufacturers want to attract customers, and hardware design is one way to do it. Most customers tend to follow trusted names in the business, with new players, and old ones, having to win customers over with something – whether it be design, software, camera, or all three. The Doogee F3 has now won Best Mobile Design of 2015 at MIIT, giving Doogee some additional credibility to the company’s hardware designs.

The Doogee F3 comes in an ultra-thin bezel, 6.8mm-thin body and provides three types of cover materials for your selection: glass, bamboo, and ebony. All three cover materials have high endurance performance, with the build materials ensuring that your phone will last over time. The Doogee F3 also comes with CNC curved edges that transcend the usual “block” designs of many high-end smartphones (a few excepted).

Gizchina News of the week

As for the Doogee F3 in terms of specs, you’re looking at a 5-inch, HD display with 1280 x 720p screen resolution as well as OGS (one-glass solution), Corning Gorilla Glass for durability, and an anti-fingerprint nano coating that reduces the typical “fingerprint magnet” claims that grace most glass and metal smartphones. A 1.3Ghz, octa-core MediaTek MT6753 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/64GB of ROM (your choice), a 13MP back camera with Samsung’s 3M2 ISOCELL camera censor and 0.1-second PDAF (phase-detection autofocus), running Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Do owners of the Doogee F3 think the phone deserves to have won such a design award?

    will be interesting to see if any owners appear, so far this phone doesn’t actually appear to exist, not in any numbers anyway, a few white ones maybe, and Doogee have already moved on to F5, 6, 7…..

        Reviewers who seem happy to do open boxes and previews, but not full reviews. Fishy and smell, comes to mind.

      I’ve been quite interested in this phone too, seems like a viable mi4c alternative. I wonder who will publish kernel sources first??

      There is a Dutch forum that’s talking about the f3 and f3 pro, Google translate it ->

        Response I just saw on reseller site: “The item is in stock right now. But there are a lot of customers place
        order in our website, so it will be not in stock at any time.Thanks for
        your understanding!”
        So it’s in stock, but will never be in stock? Sold out?
