DOOGEE Y6 Max Review: A $132 Smartphone With A 6.5-Inch Screen
The DOOGEE Y6 Max is a massive android smartphone that costs around $132 to $150, depending on when and where you buy it. It can even go lower than that if there will be a promo sale. With this price, however, what does the smartphone have to offer?
The DOOGEE Y6 Max has a body dimension of 89 x 171.3 x 8.95 mm and weighs 250 grams. It comes with a metal design that really looks and feels like a premium smartphone. Compared to smartphones that feature a 5.7-inch screen, the DOOGEE Y6 Max dwarfs them with a massive 6.5-inch screen and could almost even be considered a tablet.
At the back, the DOOGEE Y6 Max features an "almost" all-metal design except for the antennas located at the bottom and top, which are actually made out of plastic, but looks like metal. On the right side, you will the power button and volume key.
On the left is the SIM card slot where you can either install two SIM cards or one SIM card and one microSD card. Because this device runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, users can easily install a microSD card as its internal memory storage. On top, a 3.5 mm headphone jack is located that offers average sound output and not a lot of bass.
At the bottom are the speaker and microphone. In the middle is a microUSB charging port that supports OTG, so you can plug in a USB stick and it will read. The only downfall is that it is slow in charging and you will have to wait about three hours for the device to fully charge.
The DOOGEE Y6 Max features a 6.5-inch display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. For its screen quality, sensitivity is average, but colors are good and vibrant. There is also some type of scratch-resistant glass covering the screen.
Platform And Memory
The DOOGEE Y6 Max runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and is powered by a MTK6750 Octa-core CPU. As for the internal memory capacity, it features 32 GB with 3 GB of RAM.
Regarding its performance, apps work fairly good and gaming is great, because it can play almost any game without any lag. However, there is a hiccup when watching videos in YouTube as there seems to be a lag when viewing videos there.
Calling And Taking Calls
Surprisingly, call quality with this device is great. The speaker on top is loud enough and the receiver at the end of the line is able to hear the caller properly.
Camera And Battery
The DOOGEE Y6 Max features a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera. As for the picture quality, both cameras perform great in day shots and shots taken under artificial lighting. However, the pictures taken in low light shots are blurry and grainy, especially with the front camera where picture quality is so blurry that you can't see a thing. As for the battery, the device is powered by a 4,300 mAh battery, which translates to six hours of screen-on time.
