Doogee BL7000 comparison
We decided to select smartphones with similar specifications, as Doogee BL7000. So, we compare our hero with Oukitel K10000 Pro and Ulefone Power 2. These smartphones have the same diagonal, built on the same computing platforms and their main features are large batteries.
For such smartphones, which are distinguished by the high capacity of battery, performance is secondary. Frankly not the most powerful processor Mediatek MT6750T has a performance rating of 41000 scores. Together with 4GB of RAM and support for Mali-860MP2 graphics processor, this may be enough for a relatively smooth operation of the system, but for stable fps of demanding games.
Oukitel K10000 Pro is an upgraded version of Oukitel K10000, released in 2015. It received a more productive specs. If we compared Doogee BL7000 with the original Oukitel K10000, we would certainly note the difference in performance.
About the features of Doogee BL7000 cameras we already mentioned in our review, as for the sensors Oukitel K10000 Pro and Ulefone Power 2, then the most common budget modules of 13MP cameras are used, which can be found in most Chinese budget phones. The dual camera Doogee BL7000 looks like a significant advantage here.
As a result, we can say that in the smartphone market with “thick” batteries, our review hero looks quite good and can compete with other similar phones.
