Doogee introduces the X60L, a new low-budget device that follows the current trend of 18:9 displays. In addition to the 5.5-inch display, the phone features a Mediatek quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. The sales price will probably be just 70 USD. What else you can expect from the Doogee X60L, we will find out in the following article.
Besides the currently popular 18:9 format, there is little unusual about the Doogee X60L. The display of the smartphone is 5.5 inches, which makes it a medium sized device. The housing is made of plastic, the back can be removed. Probably there will be dual SIM with simultaneous memory expansion and an exchangeable battery. The X60L measures 152 x 71 x 9.35mm, which should allow one-handed operation for most users.
The 5.5-inch display has a resolution of 1280 x 640 pixels. The manufacturer states a pixel density of 294ppi on its website. However, if you calculate briefly, you notice that the Doogee X60L actually comes to 260ppi. In practice, you will still be able to recognize individual pixels if you look closely. For a mobile phone in this price range, however, this is perfectly okay and the image should provide sufficient sharpness for everyday use. It is a classic IPS panel that will hopefully provide us with good viewing angles and contrasts. In particular, we hope that the touch screen is a modern 5-point screen and not a 2-point touch screen as in some low-budget devices. The difference in accuracy is critical to the user experience and has been a deal breaker on many cheap phones.
The performance of the Doogee X60L is typical for a low budget phone. With a Mediatek MT6737 processor, the phone will provide just enough performance for basic apps like Facebook, Youtube and Whatsapp. Even simple 2D games can still be played. However, those who expect more from their mobile phone should dig deeper into their pockets.
The memory of 2GB RAM is just enough for a few apps in the cache. There is no real multitasking. The 16GB internal memory is also sufficient for some apps and music, but if you want to store large files on your mobile phone, you should use a micro SD card.
The system installed by Doogee is Android 7.0. It is not the latest Android version, but in view of its low price Android 7 is perfectly okay. The Playstore is of course pre-installed.
Supposedly there is a dual camera with 13 + 8 megapixels on the back. The truth is: the second camera will only be a dummy and all dual camera functions like bokeh or 2X-zoom are only a bad software filter. The question is whether or not you can take good pictures with the 13 megapixel main camera and the 8 megapixel front camera. Here the low-budget mobile phones often differ greatly, whereby the camera quality is significantly related to the software optimization.
Battery, wifi, bluetooth…
Despite its low price, the Doogee X60L supports all important 3G and LTE frequencies for most countries. There is also Wifi, Bluetooth, a fingerprint sensor on the back and GPS. In addition to the standards, a gyroscope and e-compass are also installed. So the manufacturer has provided very good equipment here.
The battery has an average quality of 3300mAh and should last one day under heavy use. If you rarely use your mobile phone, you may also have a two-day runtime. The battery is charged with 5V/1A, which will take about 3 hours.
Actually, the Doogee X60L offers no special features apart from its 18:9 display and the low price. Whether or not the mobile phone can convince is currently difficult to judge. In the case of low-budget devices, it is always particularly important whether the mobile phone delivers the promised functions stably and at a good speed. If this is the case, the Doogee X60L could get a buy recommendation.
