Chinese manufacturers of smartphones have never been more popular than these days. DOOGEE is one of those companies which try to bring something new whether design or pure mechanical power comes in focus. Cloning nature is definitely so incorporated with Chinese smartphone makers but some companies has a strong commitment not to deliver déjà vu.
DOOGEE F3 Pro comes on the market accompanied by a slogan especially guessed: “Born to be chosen”, as you might suggest that DooGee is telling us that time to choose this smartpal to be your faithful companion.
Looking at F3 Pro leaves no further questions if it should be treated as a mid-range smartphone. Price talks different language than built quality. Specifications talk even more different language as F3 Pro comes packed up with fine portion of high-end components which give space to do lot joyful things.
Crafted with high precision, 6.8mm thin metal body definitely says “I am the one”.
Metal frame faceted like crystal, with five sides that follow the contours of smartphone are creating the impression of a curved surface. At the same time this design provides better grip and gives the DOOGEE F3 Pro unique style.
Looking at F3 Pro from any side gives you right to say that designers made a great job pairing two elements of different level of hardness, metal and glass, in one compound.
The front side is occupied almost entirely by the display in measures of 5″ with edges of only 1mm per side which are covered in 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass. This type of glass is famous for its exceptional resistance to shocks and scratches. To get the best cosmetic result for F3 Pro, DOOGEE applied a treatment of AF anti-fingerprint nano coating that reduces the annoyance of fingerprints. Compared to F3, DOOGEE F3 Pro has Full HD IPS display in resolution of 1920×1280 pixels provided by LG, laminated with OGS technology (One-Glass-Solution) for better performance in bright ambient light and for accurate touch.
Apart from glass, you have multiple shells to choose from. Glass comes in three colors, white, black or blue sapphire, but there are also three exclusive versions of real wood, bamboo and ebony covers that enrich and give a distinctive personality to F3 Pro.
Obviously a premium style smartphone must necessarily have a technical equipment which brings it up and DOOGEE F3 Pro is no exception. Focusing on the reliability and performance of the platform MediaTek MT6753 octa-core SoC with ARM Cortex A53 1.5GHz, paired with 3GB of RAM and 16GB storage and equipped with ARM Mali T720 GPU and LTE modems.
There is always a space for good camera on smartphone like this one. The lack of the ability to capture video in Ultra Definition is compensated with a ISOCELL sensor from Samsung which 13MP sensor should offer sharper and brighter images reducing by 30% the interference between adjacent pixels while increasing single pixel light absorption by 30%. On the front we find a room for 5MP selfie camera (which is 8MP interpolated).
DOOGEE F3 Pro comes with battery capacity of 2200mAh and fast charging chip allows you to reach a capacity of 70% in just 30 minutes of charging.
The operating system is Android 5.1 Lollipop, which will update via OTA and has been customized with a extremely elegant UI and with a series of gestures supported: just place three fingers on the screen to take a screenshot or take a picture by drawing a C, double tap to unlock the phone, draw a horizontal line for a call and much more.
An advanced voice recognition system that operates locally can be used to activate the voice assistant, or use your own voice to unlock the phone, adjust the volume and store other commands via the so-called “magic instruction”.
