When it comes to offering value for money in the smartphone world, there can be little arguing with how Chinese manufacturers are leading the way. Not only are the quality of the smartphones coming from China consistently getting better, but at the same time, the cost seems to be consistently getting lower. This is not a trend which can be said to be occurring in the U.S. with prices of smartphones seemingly always on the rise. Well, one of the latest smartphones to be announced in China was the F5 from Chinese manufacturer Doogee, and this one is a prime example of the level of specs which can be currently picked up for what is essentially, a rock-bottom price.
In terms of the specs, the Doogee F5 comes equipped with a 5.5-inch display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the Doogee F5 comes equipped with 3GB RAM and powered by a 64-bit MediaTek (MT6753) octa-core processor. In terms of cameras, the Doogee F5 comes loaded with a 13-megapixel rear camera which is coupled with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Storage is set at 16GB as standard, as well as an included microSD card slot for expanding when needed. Additional features on offered include a 3,000 mAh battery, fast charging, a fingerprint scanner, dual-SIM, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and the system comes running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box. In terms of band compatibility, the Doogee F5 is said to work on 2G (GSM) 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, 3G (WCDMA) 850/1900/2100 MHz and 4G (FDD-LTE) 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz
So all-in-all, really not a bad little device and one that certainly compares to a number of the devices that have been released over the last few months. That said, one aspect, in which the Doogee F5 does not compare to the other devices of 2015 is in price, as this is considerably cheaper. The Doogee F5 is currently in pre-order status on GearBest and can currently be picked up for only $139.99. his is significantly cheaper than most other smartphones and a price-point which really puts into perspective, the type of specs you can get for this kind of cost.
