    Got my Doogee DG800 Valencia from Pandawill now !!

    @Pandawill , thanks for this great Device, for that Money it can be hard to find a better Phone.
    Let me say, I´m really impressed, only some Firmware Bugs and the small Battery could be better.

    So, let me do a short Device Review for anyone who´s interested in this 120USD Device !

    Thanks to Android Authority for the Antutu Screenshot, I didn´t havbe Time to do my own this Time.

    The Phone expierience is really cool I think, for the 6582 Soc with only 1GB Ram you can´t get something better. The 13MP Cam is great, for me better then my Jiayu G4T Cam before !

    The 4.4.2 runs really smooth, with the Original Launcher also with my favorite Nova Launcher !

    You can choose your Launcher at your Menu Settings, really cool feature.
    Let me say, there are only two Things on this Phone which can be better, one is the Wifi Antenna, it´s a bit bad, but ok, I got 1 Bar at the End of my Apartement, where my Router is 2 Rooms away.
    And the Second Thing is the Battery, this should be better, like 2600 would be cool.
    However, it stays for me for a Day, and after 16 hrs I got 30% Battery left, thats ok.

    Screenshot_2014-06-07-11-30-49.png Screenshot_2014-06-07-11-30-56.png Screenshot_2014-06-07-11-31-04.png Screenshot_2014-06-07-11-31-10.png Screenshot_2014-06-07-11-31-16.png Screenshot_2014-06-07-11-32-23.png

    click to enlarge the Screenshots.

    The important Thing for me, as I´m using about 103 Apps on my Device is the App Memory.
    On the DG800 you have 3,36GB for Apps, thats really cool as most of chinese Phones only have 1GB which is for me not enough !!!

    Screenshot_2014-06-07-11-30-35.png

    Mostly I got 1,3GB used for Apps. So the Doogee can handle this really great.
    Also OTG Function is usable very well. I got a USB Mouse tested without Problems.

    NOTE: Do not activate Talk back on the DG800, this ends in a neverending talk !!!!
    The only Way to deactivate this is to use a USB Mouse. You never get into the Menu with your Finger again.
    Thats a Bug I think !

    Anyway, I´m really impressed of this Device.
    I have less Time to tell you all my Expieriences, but I can say for me the
    PRO´s are....

    + 13MP Cam with 88° Angle, really a good Cam with a great sharpness and Colors.
    + 4.4.2 runs smoothly with no lags
    + 3,36GB Memory for Apps, really cool !
    + slim Device really fits good in your Hand
    + Cool Features like Gestures and Touch Panel on the Back

    The Things I will not need are the Back Touch, and the Gesture Things, but thats not bad on the Dooge, but I´m not a Person who uses those Features on any Phones.

    The Con´s are....

    - The Talk Back Bug
    - The small Battery, Doogee should insert a 2600mAh Battery !
    - only 2 Point Touch Panel, this I can´t understand, as the 5 Point is not moch more expensive.
    - WiFi Antenna can be better but it´s ok for normal use.

    So Guys, any Questions left ? Then post !!!

    Forgot one Thing...

    This Time I have no Idea how to ROOT this Device, I tried many Things like SuperOneClick, Shuame, ZhuDaShi, Kingo Root, VRoot, Framaroot, and the Original Mediatek Root Tool, nothing works this Time. It´s not important, but ROOT is always welcome, as I need it for some APPs.
    If anyone has rooted this Device, please PM me or Post here !
