Design, build and controls

Doogee BL7000 has the high-end appearance of a smartphone targeted at business people or people who simply love straightforward elegance. The device combines glass for the front, metal frame and faux leather for the back, which is really nice to the touch. The front edges of the metal frame have a two-step chamfer and tightly encompass the display unit forming a sharp end with the cover glass. The rear chamfered edges of the frame merge with the slightly curved vertical sides of the back plate that's covered with faux leather. The device is quite solid and it is obvious that even the smallest details are made to perfection. It is a pleasure to look at and to hold. All in all, Doogee has made a serious step forward in terms of build quality with its latest smartphone models. The model is available in black, dark blue and champagne gold colours. We are reviewing a black unit. As long as it concerns the dimensions, Doogee BL7000 is quite average in width and height for a smartphone with a 5.5-inch screen. It is 76 mm wide and 156 mm tall, the latter is, actually, a bit above average. If there are some 1400 smartphones with a display of that diagonal size, there is only one device with a 5.5-inch screen and a 7000 mAh battery - the BL7000. We can make a comparison with 5.5" smartphones that house a 6000 mAh battery, instead. Among those, the BL7000 is below average in terms of width and height. Its waistline of 11 mm is a bit higher than average, so is the weight of 220 grammes. On the front, above the display, the following elements are positioned: soft LED flash, LED notification light, proximity/light sensor, earpiece and front-facing camera. Below the display, the chin is occupied by a centrally positioned Home button with an embedded Dtouch fingerprint sensor. Two capacitive dots serve as a Menu and a Back button, respectively. The left frame is bare, while on the right frame from top to bottom you will see the hybrid, dual Nano-SIM card tray, volume button and power button. The buttons are made of metal and have very thin chamfers on the edges. They provide excellent tactile experience. The power button also has a textured surface and can be easily distinguished from the volume one. On the back, in the top central area, there's a vertically positioned dual camera module with a LED flash between the two cameras. Below them, the Doogee logo is imprinted horizontally. On the top frame, the 3.5 mm jack is positioned. On the bottom one, there's a Micro-USB 2.0 port with two speaker grilles on its sides. Only the left one covers a real speaker.
