Doogee Shoot 1
Do more with different gestures
The Shoot 1 operates quite differently – in which you can set different gestures and motions to do different things. For example taking a screen shot is 3 swipes down, you can answer calls by just putting the phone close to your ear. It’s interesting to use the phone with different gestures.
Given it’s a mid-ranger, it comes with a pretty decent 13MP+8MP Samsung rear dual camera with dual flash; allowing you to take some interesting photos by playing with the aperture. The 8MP front camera holds up very well too, giving some pretty decent selfies. The fingerprint sensor also doubles up as a shutter.
Lacking in performance
While it does your day to day tasks pretty well, anything a bit more performance heavy does tend to slow it down. Using the navigation apps could be frustrating when the GPS signal keeps dropping. Not sure if it’s a faulty device, or a GPS fault.
Did you cover a lens?
The phone notifies you if you accidentally covered either lens. Handy!
Boost up low light with dual flash
Extreme low battery
If you’re running dangerously low on battery, an extreme battery saver mode keeps your phone running longer, sticking to the essential phone, text, clock and contacts.
