Review: Doogee DG310

When talking about smartphones and tablets what is the first brand that comes to mind? Maybe Apple, Samsung, Sony, HTC, Motorola and etc. In fact, these brands are well known, not only in Brazil or the US, but worldwide. This does not happen by chance. These companies invest millions of dollars every year in advertising. Last year Samsung invested “miserable” $ 363 million and Apple $ 351 million!

It is clear then, that all this money spent has to have a return for the company. Of course, she would not spend more than $ 300 million without expecting to make a profit at least twice that amount. How does she get that profit? It’s simple: you pay.

Apple spends only $ 191 ($ 427) to produce the iPhone 5S of 16GB and $ 210.00 for the 64GB model. Among the most expensive pieces are the display ($ 41.00), provided by the LG Display, Sharp and Japan Display and radio frequency chips ($ 32.00). But, the iPhone 5S is sold here in Brazil for R $ 2,799.00  and the 64GB model for R $ 3,599.00. profit of more than 600{60744f0919d53124c03a11d98318193fda80b8dce065a9d207ce3efef73ed2c9} !

This is just an example. But that happens to every business. So you may wonder: So I could buy the same iPhone 5S of 16GB for $ 400.00 and still Apple would profit 100{60744f0919d53124c03a11d98318193fda80b8dce065a9d207ce3efef73ed2c9} of the value? Yes! But Apple can not sell the 5S for only $ 400.00. Why not? Why she has to pay those $ 351 million she spent on advertising. But not only that, there are still expenses with programmers, designers, managers and so on.

Thus we conclude that it is not the value that determines, in all cases, the quality of the product. A company can sell a cheaper smartphone or tablet if it does not spend millions on advertising and so on. This is the case with DOOGEE.



DOOGEE is a company that develops smartphones with the Android operating system. It has gained strength worldwide, but mainly in the Chinese market, for its high quality and innovation in its products. Established in March 2013 is the third brand of the KVD group.

Let’s talk a little bit about DOOGEE Voyager 2 DG310, DOOGEE’s newest model!


DOOGEE, which established itself as the leader in the Chinese phone industry, will be launching its newest smartphone, the DG310, on August 10, 2014. The DG310 comes to replace the old model, called the DG300. The model is brand new and is being sold for $ 88.88.



Although we still do not have the DG310 in hand, we notice an impressive improvement over its predecessor. It has a quad-core processor MT6582 of 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. In addition, it has a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 480 × 854. Comes with Android 4.4 operating system. These specifications certainly promise a lot of device efficiency. The camera is 1.3MP and the back of 5MP.


The device also supports gestures. The function is completely customized and you can register several gestures to open certain functions. For example, you can circle the screen as a shortcut to open the camera.


With a 0.55mm LG display, it is three times more scratch resistant than the previous model. When you take the device to your ear, it automatically answers the call. If you want to make a call, simply select the contact and bring the phone to your ear and it will call you.

You can also unlock the screen just by running your hand over the device at a distance of 3 to 4 centimeters. If you want to put it in silent mode, simply turn the screen down. Very good!


When you are capturing your images with DOOGEE dg310, you will have one more help, Flash. The flash light has been designed and developed in order to obtain a better result in the colors of the images. In addition to possessing dual flash, it exists in two light intensities: the flash of cold and warm light. It is thus possible to achieve a balance between colors.


In addition to all this the DG310 has a 2200mAh 146.6 x 73 x 7.9 mm battery. It operates on WCDMA 1900 MHz, which makes it compatible with 90{60744f0919d53124c03a11d98318193fda80b8dce065a9d207ce3efef73ed2c9} of the countries in the world. You can find it in dark blue  and white . See full specs here .

As there are still no videos of the DG310, I have separated below an unboxing of DG300 the predecessor of DG310, check:

I’ve always liked gadgets that are able to give an experience similar to that of the big brands at an affordable price. I’ve done a review in 2011 of a Coby Kyros tablet: a tablet for those who do not want to spend a lot and have an excellent experience ! This is exactly what the DOOGEE DG310 offers!
