Software

As almost like every other Chinese phone which comes with newest operating system Android 5.1 this phone also comes with this operating system. So I really don’t need to say too much about it. Because it is not too much additionally customised besides design of user interface. It does not have any additional applications installed, so you don’t need to the delete unwonted applications. The operating system works really fast and fluid. During use I did not find any problems. Also when I have for the first time turned on the Doogee Valencia 2 Y100 Pro, message appeared that there is available wireless update. So this is also good that you and many other potential customers can know that they care about software.

Camera Quality

According to the company this smartphone has 13 megapixel camera with Sony sensor. But we don’t know which exactly sensor it has. The main camera is also equipped with led flash which is medium strong and it will be enough for taking photos in dark places. Okay after testing the camera in all possible conditions like strong sun, rainy day, low light conditions. I must say that I am very impressed with photo quality because the photos are very sharp and natural. Below you can see photo samples which are taken by Valencia 2 Y100 Pro.

  1. Hey very nice to see the review but unfortunately I have to be “that” guy. Casing is not made from metal but plain plastic with added metal. It also shouldn’t be to hard to find that doogee lied about the battery capacity and it is actually 1800 mAh. And the chip inside isn’t mt6735 per se it’s an underclocked version of that chip 6735m or 6735p can’t remember right now. There might be more false info but those are the facts for now and I thought it was worth mentioning them.

  2. Doogee said on their product web page: “The back cover is polycarbonate-based and coated with uniqe finish” So they didnt lie about that. I dont have informations for other issues Mike mentioned.

  3. The WIFI on this phone is really unstable which is something you only notice if you need a continuous stream. You can get 1-2 megabyte per second and then it drops out to zero and goes back up to 1-2 mb/s pretty regularly. This isn’t something that is a big problem or even something you will notice if you browse web pages or transfer files from another device to this one BUT it is, as I said, a problem for everything which needs to be streamed continuously. SIP with the GSM codec uses only 9KB/s which is basically nothing yet this phone does not handle that and is therefore useless for doing VOIP and things like that. You will get dropouts from the person you are talking to and they will get dropouts from you too and this will happen pretty regularly, like you can talk 20s and then it drops out for a second and then you can talk a bit more and it drops out. You clearly see this when transferring files too but it doesn’t really matter in those cases. And yes, this is the phone, I’ve tried with both a Netgear and a Linksys router (and both allow perfect voip conversations with other phones). It makes no difference if you are 1 or 10 feet away from them.

  4. A. Excellent review Johnny, I totally share your opinion – I own this phone for three month now and am very pleased with it.

    B. Oyvinds – never had a single problem with wi-fi and I use mostly Wi-fi – it is fast, stable and receives also weal signals compared to other phones I’ve owned in the past. I also use mostly VOIP and make very long calls (2 hours and more) with apps like Whatsapp, Viber, etc which all work perfectly smooth All I can think of is that your specific machine is faulty and should be serviced or replaced.
