Doogee F1 Turbo mini first impressions

Full review already available HERE. Yesterday we received our Doogee F1 Turbo Mini and we put it through some tests right away. It will take some time to get a feeling of the phone and prepare the full review, but we decided to share some thoughts about our first impressions of Doogee’s new smartphone. For those of you, who don’t remember the handset quite well, let us remind you the specifications

Doogee F1 Turbo Mini first impressions

So here we are, we finally received our phone and we can start our review. There was some delay, because of the celebrations for the Chinese New Year. Anyway, we spend a few hours with the phone and it looks really nice. Of course Doogee again tried to offer an unique and beautiful design and they did that well. Doogee F1 Turbo Mini is really light and feels comfortably in the hand. The build quality is good except the power button and the volume rocker. Both of them a loose and there is unpleasant rattle, because of the metal frame combined with the loose buttons.

The performance is great as you could expect from a new 64-bit quad-core processor. The phone is really fast and absolutely lag free(so far). The Mali-T760 performs pretty good for such budget device. We ran some graphic tests and the performance is really good especially considering the price range of the phone.

The display is bright with decent viewing angles, but we noticed something really annoying. The display gets ‘burns’ similar to the Doogee Leo we reviewed recently. Seems that it’s just related to cheap materials used, rather than just another defective unit.

The camera offers lots of options and plenty of different shooting modes plus a new camera application with some really interesting features.

Stay tuned, our full review is coming soon
