As already mentioned, this phone is equipped with a professional rangefinder. It will basically eradicate the need for rulers and tape measures. It features eight measurement modes and a 40-meter range.
There is a mode for a single measurement, such as a continuous measurement when you’re walking around. There’s also an area measurement, where the length and width are measured separately to automatically calculate the area.
Volume measurement is also included, and the same goes for three Pythagoras modes to measure sloping edges, right angles, hypotenuse, and heights. Either of the modes can be selected from the phone itself.
This phone is also supposed to be able to take good photos thanks to its 48-megapixel camera from Samsung. It has four cameras on the back. In addition to that 48-megapixel unit, you’ll also find an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel portrait unit.

The DOOGEE S97 Pro is also shockproof. It comes with MIL-STD-810G military grade ruggedness certification. When it comes to its build, it combines soft TPU and aluminum alloy.
