Doogee BL7000 Review

Overview

After releasing the Doogee Mix, which turned out to be quite a success for the company, Doogee is riding a rising wave and hopes the Mix successor and its upcoming smartphones will feed that rise and help this manufacturer raise its level and establish itself as a serious player in the smartphone market. One of the models that will help the company in this direction is the Doogee BL7000. It is the second device from the BL series, which has started with the BL5000 and will continue with the BL12000 with a massive 12000 mAh battery. This series of mid-range smartphones with big batteries and quality make can turn out to be a stable foundation for Doogee in expanding its reach. We have in our hands a classy and elegant looking sample of BL7000 that packs a large 7000 mAh battery and it will undergo our usual test routine as to check, whether it delivers what it promises.
You can buy a Doogee BL7000 at a promotional price from here or here.
