DOOGEE sent us out one of their upcoming phones for us to check out. This is the DOOGEE S70. It’s a gaming/rugged phone that found its funding though an Indiegogo campaign. While the phone is not yet fully developed, the early version that we got doesn’t have all the features working yet. We still got to check out the camera, the build quality, the display and a few other things. So make sure you check out the video above.

The S70 has a lot of work put into the build of this device, to make it as rugged as possible. First of all, the display is shatterproof and protected by the slightly raised border around the edge of the phone. There’s corner protection as you can see in the photo below. Everything is wrapped in an aluminium alloy frame making this a extremely durable phone.
The IP-68 rating means that the phone is water and dust resistant. It can survive in all sorts of extreme environments. This is important for so many people that work in rough environments, but they’d usually have to sacrifice performance when choosing a rugged phone. This is no longer the case with the S70.
For the gaming side of this device, there are several hardware and software features that come together to create a great gaming experience. The DOOGEE S70’s powerful specs and massive 5500mAh battery were put to the test on some of the most popular games. Here are the play times you can expect with the following apps.
Candy Crush / Heartstone / Clash Royale / Minecraft: 15 Hours
Fortnite / PUBG Mobile: 11 Hours
Pokemon Go / Ingress: 9 Hours
The features built into the S70 will make this a high performing phone when you’re playing your favorite games. But DOOGEE understands that in order for a phone to really be called a “Gaming Phone” you have to have some new hardware that will make gaming on Android better. That’s where the DOOGEE G1 comes in. This Gamepad is designed specifically for the S70. You can clip this accessory to your phone to enable a gaming joystick controller. Check out this video to see it in action.
“The DOOGEE S70 has a powerful GPU and 6GB of RAM. The S70 features great compatibility in motion compensation technology, image quality enhancement and dark light processing. This outstanding phone achieves unhindered game performance to set you free in the game world.”
Perhaps the most ambitious aspect of the DOOGEE S70 is the aggressive price of $279. The rugged feature of this devices combines with the powerful specs that make this a gaming phone, result in the S70 being an incredible value.
