Walnut cracking Doogee Valencia2 Y100 Pro now offered with a strengthened display

Walnut cracking Doogee Valencia2 Y100 Pro now offered with a strengthened display
Before the Doogee Valencia2 Y100 hit the shelves, the company's engineers realized that the 2.5D glass would crack and shatter during drop tests. So the manufacturer decided to use a version of Gorilla Glass .8mm thicker than the standard version of Corning's protective product. In addition, the display is coated with a special nano shell that lessens the chances of it cracking.

To show how strong the screen is following the revisions, Doogee produced a video showing the Valencia2 Y100 being used as a walnut cracker using the phone's newly reinforced display. After cracking a number of walnuts, the screen remained pristine.

With a plastic build and rounded corners, the Doogee Valencia2 Y100 comes with a 5-inch screen carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution. The 64-bit MediaTek MT6735 SoC is under the hood containing a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of internal storage. The 13MP rear-facing camera contains a Sony sensor, and there is a front-facing 8MP snapper available to take selfies and handle video chats. A 2200mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed. The phone is available from Chinese retailers in the country, priced at only $129.99 USD.

Check out the promo showing the handset being used as a nutcracker (Doogee created a whole story around this) by clicking on the video below. As Doogee notes, don't try this at home with your own phone.

720 x 1280 resolution is not good for any phone in 2015.

Can you state your reasons why it should be obsolete?

720 is awesome for a $130 phone. 1080 is perfectly acceptable for any 5" phone forever. 2k and 4k are nice but unnecessary, unless you want good VR. Brightness, color quality and battery life are more important when you can't distinguish pixels anymore.

Sorry but I'll take this over those galaxy young core prime value edition. HD still looks good on a 5 incher and hey look, it's got 2 GB of RAM. Direct your comment to Samsung Galaxy duhs please.

2.5D means Glass free 3d, right?

13. peace247 unregistered

No...2.5D means the glass is curved on the edges so that it merges with the phone body...to give a smooth finish...

Looks like the acer liquid series. So their gorilla glass is thicker than samsung s6? I don't care if it has weird branding but such little details are impressive and should be in the expensive flagship phones.
