The Doogee Y100 Plus gives the “plus” at no extra cost


The Doogee Y100 Plus has been proclaimed as the successor to the Y100 Pro, but the “Plus” nomenclature hints to something more in the Y100 Plus than the Y100 Pro. While the Y100 Pro features a 5-inch screen, the Y100 Plus features a 5.5-inch screen with the same resolution as that of the Y100 Pro (HD, 1280 x 720p), an 5MP front camera, 13MP back camera, quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of ROM, dual-SIM slots, 4G connectivity, and a 3,000mAh battery that should survive well beyond a day on a single charge.

Doogee Y100 Plus materials

As for the Y100 Plus’s design, Doogee says that it took the same care to design the Y100 Plus as it did the Y100 Pro. The experience is gapless, bonding metal and glass together seamlessly in a way that just feels right in the hand. The back cover of the Y100 Plus uses eco-friendly materials such as the polycarbonate plastic, nanoscale aluminum alloy powder, Japanese Musashi paint, and lubrication oil texture that combine to make the Y100 Plus not only beautiful, but also durable.

The lubrication oil texture is brushed across the back cover to make it element-resistant. To create the Sandstone Black cover, Doogee took natural sandstone, crushed it, and mixed it with paint, then sprayed to the back cover. Finally, the company added an elastic resin protection for abrasion resistance. The water-ink cover, the last of the eco-friendly back covers, is a creation of baked paint and wear-resistant elastic polymer latex UV that resists fingerprints, oils, and dirt.

Doogee Y100 Plus

The Doogee Y100 Plus costs the same as that of the Y100 Pro ($125.99), but Doogee says that you can expect the price of the Y100 Pro to drop $20-$30 now that its replacement has come. Of course, we believe the Y100 Pro is one of the best entry-level/mid-level smartphones to grace the market – so it may not be hard to see where we stand on its successor.

    Shame for the processor, too weak. Luckily there is the UMI Rome which is
    cheaper and has a nice 5.5 AMOLED screen, octacore mt6732 and 3gb ram at
    an even lower price point… after all the problems with their recent models and batteries,
    that’s another great reason to steer away from them!

      Really looking for this product, I’ve also read that has metal finishing and a thickness which is less than 8mm… along with the great processor, ram and the amoled screen, it’s incredible how such a product can be offered for so low!
