Doogee F3's bamboo back survives a fire and passes the bend test
We will return to the rest of the specs in a moment. First, let's talk about the back of the phones. Both have a rear cover made of glass, and can be customized using rear covers provided by Doogee. One such cover is made of bamboo and fiberglass. Could a cover made of these materials hold up to fire? Will it bend? We will spare you the agony of a long wait. The Bamboo cover won't catch on fire, nor will it turn into the letter "V" if it sits in your back pocket. It will leave a mark if burnt, but at least a fire won't cremate the F3.
The remaining specs shared by the Doogee F3 and Doogee F3 Pro include the MediaTek MT6753 SoC, with an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU. The camera on back is a 16MP snapper carrying an aperture of f/2.2, with dual LED flash. Shooting selfies and handling video chats is the 8MP front-facing camera. The 2200mAh cell can charge up to 70% full in just 30 minutes, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed.
The Doogee F3 supports 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and microUSB 2.0 connectivity. The16GB of internal storage leaves 12.3GB for the end user. At 6.9mm thin, the F3 is svelte, although it does tip the scales at 170 grams.
