Doogee’s retro-ish T6 Pro is the newest MT6753 (big battery) phone on the block


Doogee are like the brand that always remains there and thereabouts… never really fades away (thanks to the multitude of launches!).

The newest phone from this Chinese company happens to be the Doogee T6 Pro, another budget brick in the wall. It comes with the MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor which has become the ‘poster boy’ for all mid-range phones from export brands such as Doogee.

That said, there is something that’s slightly different from the myriad of MT6753 phones around — the battery. The Doogee T6 Pro features a rather chunky 6250mAh battery, which should make the phone good to use for a couple of days at least on one charge.

Alright, enough beating around the bush. Let’s discuss the full specs of the phone: the Doogee T6 Pro has a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720p display, the aforementioned MediaTek MT6753 processor, 32GB ROM, 3GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front facing camera, 6250mAh battery (with 9V/2A charging support) and lastly, an installation of Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Doogee claim that the 9V/2A charger that comes in the box is Quick Charge 2.0 compliant. Regardless, the charger rating does imply fast charging — how it turns out in real life is yet to be seen, however.

The Doogee T6 Pro gets a pre-sale price of $149.99, which doesn’t seem too shabby for a phone of its specs. More news to follow in the coming weeks!

    But i will choose The Oukitel Pro (Better display with a bigger resolution, and a fingerprint scanner included, at the same price)

    not a CHANCE IN HELL !
    dearth of features AND a fricking stupid CPU !

    USE THE x10 YOU IMBECILES !

      I don’t think we’re going to see any other x10 phone in the future: now mediatek is pushing the p10 for this price range, although tge x10 would have been a better choice cpu and gpu wise

        exactly man … sad to see another good CPU being belittled like this.
        p10 is weaker and x10 which , albeit older , guarantees MUCH better performance in games n stuff!

        x10 should have been the trend for mid-range and LOWER mid-range super budget phones !

        MTK are dumb asf !

          Are they? That’s part of their “masterplan”, because they make a rent out of this strategy… It’s worst for us in some ways, but surely they earn a lot from this, and we benefit from it too… If you want I can explain further (I think you may already know how mediatek strategy work), but overall there are pros and cons to be considered

            they are phasing out a great cpu that should cost so much that even small manufacturers can afford it for the lower-mid-range models now. its powerful and better than the new p10. sustained production means they can sell more of a seemingly ‘old’ CPU which is still in demand since the p10 is weaker (it shouldn’t have been weaker in the first place). mtk sells more chips of an old cpu , we get better powered phones. how is mtk and/or the end-user like me n u benefitting from their current strategy then ?

              They did the same with mt6752 when x10 was out, that was way way better than that crappy mt6753 and now same done to x10 when x20 is out.

              That’s a long story to explain ?
              Overall, we benefit in mediatek’s low prices. While qualcomm powered phones usually have a potentially longer life cicle, mediatek follow another policy: keep their prices low, but pull out some tricks in order to make every phone obsolete as soon as possible.

              As said, that’s a long story, but to keep it short, that’s it: you get your phone at a low price thanks to this kind of policies going in according to chinese’s manufacturers!

          But surprisingly Mediatek can sell a lot of their so called dumb SOC to the china vendors.

          Maybe in china, buyer only see the pretty casing (slim, metal, colorful etc etc) and low price only. Maybe most of them don’t know shit about hardware specs, no pun intended. It is sad but maybe it is true.

    MT6753 in a 2016 phone with same pricetag as Lenovo Vibe K5 or Xiaomi Note 3 ?
    good luck doogee

      June 13, 2016

      If you’re willing to pay the extra $20 over $150 ($99-$150 price ranged phones) then the Xiaomi Note 3 is a good choice to snag the Helio X10 over the MTK6753.

      • loller
        June 13, 2016

        You can get Xiaomi note 3 pro prime sd650 (3/32) for 180$ shipped or 2/16 for 150$… and you will have better SOT over this trash doogee with poor display and no updates.

          Yupe that’s why i really don’t find this pricing attractive as it is totally moronic to buy such an inferior smartphone spec for such a price.

          The only different is big battery only, But hey if i buy power bank also not expensive.

    I’m always in for a big battery phone, just… Not from doogee! There’s no chance this is going to be a real competitor for ulefone power and oukitel k6000 pro in the long run (when build quality and sw optimization count more than spec sheets).

    Plus, it’s from doogee, so that “6250mah declared battery” is a 3000mah real one at best ?

    Wow high price and mediocre specs for something that will be competing with 1.Thor (small battery), 2.Ulefone Power, 3.Oukitel K6000 Pro, my pick of best cheap range phone.

    I own DooGee T6 which is basicly the same, just a bit older with a lower specs. But I m 100% sure that the problems remains even in pro version. So after 3/4year of usage the battery life isnt that stagering, cos of wrong energymanagement. When I have wifi always on listening music via bluetooth 3-4 hours a day, 1 hour game, 1-2 hours on the internet it lasts for a bit more than 2 days, even when it was new. Some serious problem is static energy created when u have phone on the move or rotating in pocket,bag etc. That energy cause simultanous toches on screen so u basicly have to wait a bit which is really anoying, at least its not happening always, but pretty commonly. Other issue come on surface just recently the battery lifted up a bit the back cover 1-2 mm, thx god i still have waranty, i hope they give me my money back or at least let me choose some other phone in same price cattegory. My reccomendation, newer ever buy DooGee …btw the static energy on screen is also happening to friend of mine who s using doogee X6 so probably that is the problem of design itself, i gess they have some srs pro engeneers in the factory
