– Helio P60 octa core 2.0GHz 12nm
– 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM UFS 2.1
– 24W Type-C fast charge
Visually, there is hardly a noticeable difference between the Doogee S86 and the Doogee S86 Pro. The corners and the back are padded with rubber. A metal frame is attached to the sides. The camera unit is in the center, and the Doogee emblem is placed on a metal piece below it. The Doogee S86 Pro is available in three colors: red, orange and black, whereby the colors only ever set slight accents – the majority of the casing is black/silver.
We already know the port/key layout from the Doogee S86: A fingerprint sensor and the power and volume buttons are on the right, a SIM slot and a function key are on the left. The USB-C port is hidden under the rubber flap on the bottom. There is another rubber flap on the top that protects the 3.5 mm headphone port. Because of the large battery and rugged IP68, IP69K and MIL-STD-810G design, the Doogee S86 measures a whopping 165 x 81 x 17mm with a weight of 323 grams.
The display of the Doogee S86 Pro measures 6.1 inches, but has a clearly visible bezel. However, this is not uncommon for outdoor smartphones. However, the HD resolution of only 1560 x 720 pixels is clearly below average. However, this did not bother us in our test because the display is relatively small and thus a sufficiently high pixel density is still given. Since the S86 and the Doogee S86 Pro probably have the same panel, the display brightness should also be 640 lux again. A very decent value for such an inexpensive smartphone. The panel is also protected by Gorilla Glass. However, Doogee does not reveal the version.
The processor is also the same as in the standard version. The Doogee S86 Pro features the familiar Mediatek Helio P60. The chip is by no means particularly powerful, but it is easily enough for everyday tasks. The Pro version is supported by a somewhat larger working memory of 8 GB RAM. The S86 had to make do with “only” 6GB. The fixed memory of 128GB has remained the same. High-quality UFS 2.1 memory modules are used.
Almost everything remains the same in terms of the camera as well. However, this is not particularly positive since the Doogee S86 scored quite weak in this discipline. An 8MP selfie camera and a triple camera with a 16MP main lens and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera are used. The sensor of the main camera is a Samsung S5K4H5. In addition, the Doogee S86 had two completely useless 2 megapixel sensors. One of the two has now been replaced by a thermometer.
Of course, it is clear that the smartphone has all the LTE frequencies required in Germany and also has NFC for contactless payment. In addition, the S86 Pro comes with a hybrid dual-SIM slot (2 x Sim or 1 x SIM + MicroSD), an AUX port, and 2-watt stereo speakers. The speakers were positively highlighted in our review of the Doogee S86, so you can expect a decent sound even in the Pro version. Bluetooth 5.0 and Wifi 4 (2.4 GHz, b/g/n) are also available.
The battery of the Doogee S86 again measures a gigantic 8500mAh. The predecessor could be used for three days without recharging. The Doogee S86 Pro should also achieve this runtime again. The battery can also be charged with 24 watts via USB-C.
