Doogee F5 and F3 tailor-made design process detailed


The Doogee F5 and F3 are finely crafted, but just what goes into the design process? The company behind the F5 and F3 answers that question for us: the Doogee F5 and F3 are constructed by way of 1) CNC cutting and 2) die-casting.

Doogee F5 F3 alloy melted

The aluminum alloy used in the Doogee F5 and F3 are first melted under extremely high temperatures in the die-casting process and are then poured into a die-casting machine in which the hot aluminum alloy is molded into the shape of the F5 and F3 back covers. The die-casting process can leave some holes and marks in the aluminum mold, which then warrants the CNC cutting machine to strip away the excess metal fragments. After the stripping, the aluminum cover is cleaned to eliminate small metal fragments that can hang-off the cover, which is why the aluminum cover is sent to the assembly line. On the assembly line, the Doogee F5 and F3 are spray painted by 8 groups of 16 nozzles, which ensures that the spray-painting job is uniform.

Next in the process is crafting the antenna slots, which, for many manufacturers, can be one of the most difficult parts of the process. The iPhone 4 “AntennaGate” problem was created simply because metal tends to interfere with antenna signals. The Doogee F5 and F3 take into account this complication and provide open antenna slots as a way to offset problems that exist with a premium metal design and stellar signal performance. HTC’s metal One smartphones have proven difficult in this regard in signal performance. Then, the back cover (matte) undergoes a few rounds of spraying, grilling, and drying the paints used.

Finally, the Doogee F5 and F3 undergo a diamond-cutting process whereby the cutting knife, in the shape of a diamond (for which “diamond-cutting” is named), carves out the cameras, volume keys, and speaker.

As can be seen, the Doogee F5 and F3 are crafted with the utmost care in mind. Did you know how intricate the design process was for these two smartphones? Does this change your impression(s) of the F5 and F3?

        Se da una parte è sempre questa tizia a pubblicare queste stronzate, dall’altra suppongo che il redattore le approvi… E decisamente non và affatto bene questo :-/

          la tizia almeno ci mette la faccia, il vero problema è il redattore infatti, che fa fare a lei il lavoro sporco e permette sto schifo.

            Inizio a chiedermi se la tizia esista davvero, o se è un profilo falso che hanno fatto solo per la pubblicità… lol

            So got the phone today and first impressions is that its amazing. Really quick, I think its visually very appealing, I like square strong angled phones, not sure about the liquid metal statement they made however as back seems plastic, though with a metal chassis enveloping the sides. Box looks very professional, came with tempered glass screen protector, and plastic case ( which I’m not too keen on but I’m paranoid after my p7000!) Sound seems to be OK, I can’t give anything on battery life yet but will let you know if you like. I paid £94 for it, which is really cheap considering. Device comes with a sim card tray which you can put 2 sims in (1 nano and a micro) or 1 micro sim and 1 memory card. They include in box sim card tray tool and nano to micro sim converter. There’s no headphones but I’m not bothered.
            Pairs well with my iradish y6. Already had an ota update, not sure what it fixed!
            Android 5.1 seems to be mostly stock, they’ve added about 3-4 additonal apps which I’ve uninstalled. Any questions I’ll try to answer.

              -camera. and i mean INTENSIVE STRESS test , like low-light as well as daylight pics both indoors and outdoors. video test would be added plus and selfie too.
              and is that dual flash worth it ?

              -gaming performance and heating.

              – multitasking.

              -fingerprint scanner.

              -screen quality and visibility. is it REALLY FHD ?

              – call quality.

    What the F did I just read? This is one of the most embarrassing marketing fairytale stories read in a long time.All that matters is the final product not this ‘How it s made’ doogee edition .For the real one we can watch Discovery channel. This place becomes more and more Gizdoogee.com. Cuz this is Doogee we re talking about :all that matters is real and final product not this ‘Once upon a time there was a doogee factory that did nothing ever seen before’ ‘HTC’s metal One smartphones have proven difficult in this regard in signal performance’ WHAT? When was that ? God knows that i ve been using htc one phones in the past years and even for phone calling and guess what?no signal problems. Comparing doogee with htc is laughble and the whole dooging marketing campaign going on in the last days is just sad. Tell your friends to come with something smart if they can :like a smartphone not dumb stories.

    maybe if we cloud one of andi stories with complaints about this he migth get the point it would seem as theydon’t supervise what Deidre is putting out, sorry deidre but you should look around and get an idea of what a review looks like so that we can not get offended or sad or angry when we see such ADVERTISING so openly, this page we were understood was for reviews and new stories not for propaganda for and specific brand each week.

      i have to be honest: I’ve never seen good reviews about Doogee phones here in Gizchina, actually i remember Andi himself being pretty harsh reviewing a cheap made Doogee phone.

      if you want to hear my opinion about it then i would say that they are simply reporting “news” about Doogee phones which are notorious being very active with advertisement but not good on making phones (IMO).

      Sometimes it comes easier to copy and paste piece of articles from the source rather than write it from scratch.
      And since the source is Doogee itself you can feel a touch of propaganda in the “news”.

      Dreide is new here, i don’t know how experienced she is on writing articles, so I’m not going to judge her work.

      that said, you can tell from most of the comments here that we have an issue and this issue should be addressed to Andi so he can figure out how to fix it.

      I don’t think there’s a deontological problem here but,having some experience in customer support,i’d say that would be a mistake to ignore the complaints.

    There is UMI Iron pro in the same price range, and has three security features (fingerprint, iris scanner and vocal), more original design, dedicated headphone amplifier and real 3000+MAh battery (no 2600mah like this one). There is only one clear winner between the two!

    The Doogee F5 carries MTK6753 octa-core processor along with 3GB RAM and 16GB ROM, 13MP+5MP Samsung camera, while Bluboo Xtouch with almost same price with same CPU, 32GB ROM, 13MP + 8MP Sony camera, so I love Xtouch more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWVQIcD_SKQ
