Doogee Smart Cube P1 Projector presales start at $169


doogee P1 projector hands on

We came hand to hand with the Doogee P1 at MWC this year, now the device is on presale at an intro price of just $169.

Normally known for making budget and midrange phones, Doogee made a bit of a change this year. On the phone front they have their flagship Helio X20 Flag F7 on the way, and to diversify their range they have the Smart Box P1 Projector.

We tried the P1 at MWC, and found the Rubiks cube sized box to be a cool little gadget. The box contains a powerful lamp, Android operating system, 4800mAh battery and is able to connect to mobile devices and desktops to mirror screens. We also so the P1 connected to a Mac using the projector as a second screen.

Its a versatile little box that could be used for office, work, home or play.

Pre sales have started today with the cost of the Box starting at $169, and expected to rise to just below $200 when stock are in. Take a look at the P1 in action in our hands on video below:

        Na, I’ll just buy a competitor product before that…

        At least then I run the chance of getting one with similar functionality that doesn’t look like an 80’s rubik’s cube!

          Yup don’t get the looks either. What the hell was their design department smoking 🙂

    Doogee’s presentation is a fraud… especially the picture where you can see a couple looking at a gigantic projection of Avatar in broad daylight using this product.

    1- you can’t obtain such contrast and image clarity in broad daylight with 70 lumens
    2- you can’t obtain this kind of picture @100″ diag with a 854×480 projector

    All you’ll have is a blurry blue-ish crap.
    And the feeling you’ve been assfucked.

      The gaming part is also a fraud.

      Can’t see what you’ll do with a 1GB/8GB box which CPU/GPU hasn’t been unveiled. And Miracast is a joke too, can’t play games with that crappy BW.

      And photo projection… can’t even think about what would look like a 21MP photo displayed @854×480

      Damn shitty product…

      Can’t see any use except projecting a powerpoint in a dark conf room.

      I would await the product in real life. I have the Unic UC40 for 60$ which has beneath equal specs. And this is no bad product.
      You can project in daylight, but only a few centimeters, but finally it works. Even more, you can make a 100″ sight, but only at complete dark. And the screen resolution is not so remarkable. I was really suprised when i saw it first time.

      The biggest problems at these projectors are, that they are so limited, that they dont work anymore properly, in any bad affects:
      – Its not complete dark -> Problem
      – Projector is not properly focussed (and its really delicate) -> Problem
      – Projector doesnt stand straight in front of the wall –> Problem

      The more you pay for a projector the more they are able to handle these bad affects. But in ideal sitiuations also these cheap projectors can be a good investition. In my case I’m pretty happy to use it, as secon tv screen at the dorm room, when we use it, it’s dark, its well fixed and good adjusted. I have no reason to spend thousends of dollars for this.

        You are right, and i’m not saying this is a bad product : it can always be put to use, even if there are many limitations.

        I’m just saying this limitations are eluded by the way they advertise this product.
