Doogee N40 Pro Review

This Doogee N40 Pro has recently gone on sale, and we did not want to miss the opportunity to test it and comment on our impressions. It is a simple terminal that can be an option to consider.

First of all, we want to thank the Doogee brand for leaving us this new Doogee N40 Pro to put it to the test and comment on our impressions in this review.

This terminal comes in a white box with bright blue lettering. In these letters comes the name of the brand and a text that says “Smart life for 4” (An intelligent life for you) but in no case does the model’s name appear. On the side is the sticker with the characteristics, and this is where it appears that it is the Doogee N40 Pro with 6GB RAM / 128GB ROM.

When opening it, we find the terminal on top wrapped in a translucent bag. Inside this bag comes the phone with a transparent and flexible TPU case. Underneath, there is a small box with the instructions, the warranty, and the pin for the card slot. Removing everything is the USB C cable and the power charger (Spanish version) from 5V to 2A (10W) / 7V to 2A (14W) / 9V to 2A (18W) / 12V to 2A of 24W power.

Next, I will leave you the unboxing of this phone in this review.
This Doogee N40 Pro comes updated with the latest version available: Android 11 under its customization layer. It is a minimalist version without an application drawer so that all applications will be organized on the main screen or in folders. On the other hand, the main menu is also very simple without groupings in the menu items.

In addition, at the top of the main menu, we have a functional menu with several shortcuts to tools that the phone includes.

It is a global ROM that includes several languages, including Catalan, Galician, and Basque. Although in the area of ​​facial unlocking, there was some area without translating from English.

On the other hand, I do not know if it will receive security updates or Android version updates, although it does seem.

This global version includes Google services. It comes with the Google Play app store, YouTube, Chrome, Drive, Photos, Maps, Gmail, and the native Android apps like File Manager, Calculator, Calendar, and the FM Radio app.

Doesn’t include annoying sponsored apps.

As for security, this terminal has a fingerprint reader on the side that can be configured with up to 5 fingerprints. This unlock works fine but is not instantaneous. It takes a few milliseconds to unlock. It also has image-based facial recognition (unsafe system). Also, mention that it works well, although it only allows you to save one face.

Unlocking test

And as for the level of security, this Doogee only has Widevine L3, so the videos from Netflix, HBO, or Amazon Prime Video will be reproduced in a quality lower than FullHD.

After passing the Malwarebytes antivirus, it has not detected malicious applications.

Design and Materials

This terminal draws attention, especially for its design. It measures 75.7mm wide, 165.2mm high, and is 9.9mm thick. It is made of polycarbonate, making its size weight 215 g without cover (234 g with cover). It is a very thick terminal that, together with the transparent cover, makes it a bit more uncomfortable to wear.

The screen is a 6.52-inch LTPS LCD type with a 720 x 1600 px resolution and a pixel density per inch of 269ppi. It is a rounded corner display with a drop-style notch right in the center and maintains a 20: 9 aspect ratio.

The left and right frames are approximately 2mm, the top is slightly higher, and the bottom is 5mm. The usable screen area is 69%.

It is a simple screen. It has a maximum brightness of 500 cd / m², and the contrast ratio is 1500: 1. In times of a lot of sun, you will have to strain your eyes a little to see the screen well. The colors displayed on the screen are vivid and intense.

The screen refresh rate is 30Hz (the traditional one).

The rear is quite different than what it is. We are used to it. Made of plastic, it has a rugged design that makes it less slippery than a metal one. In my case, it is brown, but there are 3 other colors.

In the upper part, it has a module with 4 cameras and a double elongated LED flash. The camera module barely protrudes 1 mm, and I think it is very well integrated if we put the case that comes with it. Underneath it all comes the brand name (Doogee).

The curvature of the sides is minimal.

Mention that it also has a small notification led on the front next to the call speaker.

The sides follow the same aesthetic as other phones. The right side has the volume up and down button, and just below it is the on and off button (Power) that also works as a fingerprint reader. On the left side is the slot for 2 nano-SIM cards or a nano-SIM card and a micro-SD card.

At the bottom, you have the USB type C (reversible), the stereo speaker, and the microphone. On the contrary, at the top, it does not have anything (not even a headphone jack)

Power and Hardware

As always, to compare the performance of this Doogee N40 Pro, we have subjected it to the AnTuTu Benchmark version 9.0.12 performance test with the terminal practically empty. In this way, we can compare it with other terminals and check its full potential. After submitting it to the test, it has obtained 210,547 points, with which we corroborate that it is a very simple device comparable to a low-end.

This terminal mounts an 8-core MediaTek Helio P60 (MT6771) processor with a maximum speed of 2GHz. It is a chip with a 64-bit architecture manufactured at 12nm, accompanied by an ARM Mali-G72 MP3 graphics card that works at 700MHz.

There is only the version with 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage memory (although we can add a memory card if we consider little space).

After being subjected to a speed test, it has obtained a maximum reading speed of 481MB / s and 303 MB / s writing in the storage memory. RAM has given a figure of 85MB / s for reading and 137MB / s for writing.

In daily use, I have not had problems with any application. The operation is good, both with messaging apps (WhatsApp, Telegram), and to browse Chrome or Firefox, or make use of the multimedia section (Netflix, Prime Video). However, the loading and application change times are a bit high when compared to a high-end terminal. In addition, the more open applications we have, the longer it will take.

And as always, we have also subjected it to a playability test. I tried with different games such as “Clash Royale,” “Call of Duty,” or “League of Legends: Wild Rift” I have noticed that the screens take a long time to load. Sometimes he had even started the game before loading.
