DOOGEE S68 Pro: In the box

Inside the box, you will find the smartphone itself in a plastic bag, a Type-C charging cable, a 24 W power adapter, a manual and a SIM needle.

DOOGEE S68 Pro: Design

Given that the DOOGEE S68 Pro is a rugged smartphone that must withstand falls from a height of 1.5 meters, immersed in water for up to 30 minutes or not afraid of dust or dirt, so the dimensions and weight of the device are appropriate.

It is clear that rugged smartphones are not intended for fragile girls, but for men who work in difficult conditions, for example, firefighter, builder, military or other difficult professions.

Thus, the S68 Pro model received dimensions of 163.5 x 80.0 x 16.45 mm and weighs 238 grams. 

The side faces on the right and left are made of gray metal, and the back panel and the upper sides are made of rubberized plastic. 

On the back, you can see the Doogee logo, NFC logo, IP68. In addition, there is the main camera with three sensors and a dual-LED flash. The fingerprint scanner is located just below the camera and it works quite accurately and most importantly, which is fast.

The main speaker was installed on the rear panel. If the phone is on the back of the table, the sound from the speaker will be muffled.

The lower part of the face received a Type-C port with fast charging and microphone holes. The charging port is closed with a rubber plug so that water does not get inside the case.

The front of the smartphone DOOGEE S68 Pro has a 5.9-inch screen with Full HD resolution. 

The frames around the screen are quite large, especially at the bottom and at the top, but as for a secure device – this is a typical solution.

In the upper part, there is a front camera and various sensors, such as a proximity sensor or light. A little higher is the earpiece, which is protected by a metal mesh.

The controls are standard, for example, the power button and volume rocker are located on the right side. 

And on the left, there is an additional multi-function button and a slot for two SIM cards or one SIM card and memory card.

DOOGEE S68 Pro: Screen

As we mentioned, the DOOGEE S68 Pro smartphone received a 5.9-inch screen with a resolution of Full HD + or 1080 x 2280 pixels. Given its small size, the pixel density is quite high and is 428 ppi. The screen quality is standard with the IPS matrix.

The maximum brightness was 430 cd/m² and this value is enough for comfortable use in sunny weather. The viewing angles are good and in the settings, you can find the night mode function.

DOOGEE S68 Pro: Performance

The main feature for a secure smartphone is not high performance, but a high-quality and reliable assembly and good materials. But the DOOGEE S68 Pro model has its own advantages in terms of performance.

Our today’s hero received an Helio P70 processor that runs on 12-nanometer technology. The chipset received four Cortex-A53 cores with a clock frequency of 2.0 GHz and four cores with a frequency of 2.0 GHz.

The ARM Mali-G72-MP2 GPU runs at 700 MHz. It does its job well and you can easily play even the most difficult games, such as Asphalt 9, PUBG Mobile or Call Of Duty.

The amount of memory is simply colossal, considering its price about $ 200. The rugged smartphone DOOGEE S68 Pro received 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. Also, you have the opportunity to use an additional memory card.

Performance Helio P70 processor resembles Snapdragon 710. 

DOOGEE S68 Pro: Software

The rugged smartphone DOOGEE S68 Pro runs on Android 9.0 with a proprietary Doogee interface. We can’t call a clean software, as many unnecessary applications are installed in the interface.

Of course, the interface has built-in Google applications. Also, in the interface, there are third-party applications, for example, ToolBag. Here you can find an electronic compass, noise meter, magnifier, level, plumb line and much more. These applications are typical for almost every rugged smartphone and they will be useful, for example, for the builder.

In addition to fingerprints, there is an additional feature that recognizes the face of the owner. It does not work as good and fast as on flagship devices.

DOOGEE S68 Pro: Communication

As for communications, DOOGEE S68 Pro uses two SIM cards with 4G support and has global communication in its execution, such as B1(2100)/B3(1800)/B7(2600)/B8(900)/B20(800).

In addition, the smartphone was equipped with a dual Wifi network, Bluetooth with version 4.2, as well as a GPS module and an NFC sensor. 

Since the S68 Pro model is rugged, therefore, it contains OTA and OTG functions.

DOOGEE S68 Pro: Camera

The main DOOGEE camera received a 21-megapixel sensor from Sony IMX230. The second and third 8-megapixel modules from the GC8034 and GC0310, one for telephoto and the other for ultra-wide shots.

The front camera has a 16-megapixel module with an f/2.0 aperture from S5K3P3SP06-FGX9.

The camera application looks standard and all the necessary modes are present at the bottom of the screen.

As for the quality of the photos, in the daytime there are no complaints, the photos are very detailed and vivid. But at night, the photos are a little blurry and the street lamps are very lit.

Bokeh mode works very poorly, and the object needs to be configured independently, and not automatically. Therefore, with bokeh photos, not everything is very beautiful.

The ultra-wide mode of operation does not work very well, the angles are quite blurry.

The main camera DOOGEE S68 Pro shoots video with a resolution of 1080p and 30 frames per second, there is also optical stabilization. The video is very smooth, and the colors are vibrant and realistic.

DOOGEE S68 Pro: Battery

In the case of the S68 Pro model, a 6300 mAh battery is installed and as for a rugged smartphone, this is a good indicator. In practice, the device worked for about 2 days with the active mode of use.

Also, the manufacturer DOOGEE equipped its model with fast charging with a 24W adapter. Therefore, the charging time of a contented battery is about 1 hour and 35 minutes.

In addition to all this, the smartphone received 10W wireless charging.

DOOGEE S68 Pro: Conclusion 

This is an ideal smartphone for harsh conditions, as it has protection against water, dust, and fall.

On the downside, the device does not have a 3.5 mm jack for headphones and even an adapter as well. The camera in bokeh and ultra-wide modes does not shoot in the best way.

But the advantages are much more influential. For example, a good bright screen, beautiful appearance, good performance, sufficient memory, and good battery life.
