High-end comes to low-cost smartphones

As flagship smartphones get pricier, budget handsets are more high-end than ever, writes ARTHUR GOLDSTUCK as he discovers the Doogee



Doogee X95: the ultimate in price/performance

If those options weren’t attractive enough, Cash Crusaders this week launched the latest Doogee smartphone, the X95, in South Africa.

The X95 includes a bezel-less waterdrop screen, triple rear camera and a 4350mAh battery. 

Available in black, green and blue, featuring a 6.52” Corning Gorilla Glass HD waterdrop screen, it uses a coating process that creates a glare gradient that complements the vivid colours. It supports dual sim cards, runs on a quad-core 64-bit MediaTek MT6737 processor and Mali T720 MP GPU, allowing all Android apps to run smoothly – including 3D games.

It carries 32GB storage and 2GB RAM, and the camera array comprises a 13MP+2MP+2MP triple rear camera and 5MP front camera. Night mode, together with the hidden flashlight within the dot notch display screen, allows clear images regardless of light conditions.

A high-capacity OTG-supported 4350mAh battery, equipped with a power management chip, powers the X95, allowing for just over 24 hours’ usage on one charge. The 5V/2A fast-charge feature fully charges the battery within just half an hour via the Micro USB port.

The X95 operates on pure Android 10, which includes a system-wide dark theme, and privacy controls. 

All in all, it sets a new standard for affordability relative to features.
