Undoubtedly those who spend a lot of time outdoors in sport and at work, they need a durable and affordable smartphone. And it is probably for this reason that, in recent years, Doogee has managed to establish itself in the rugged sector. The Chinese company has focused on the quality of its products: in addition to a careful choice of materials, each device of the brand is subjected to numerous tests before being marketed. This is especially true for “armored” smartphones that have to withstand the toughest “survival” tests.
The new Doogee S70 and Doogee S80, for example, have been certified with military specifications (MIL-STD-810G), brilliantly overcoming resistance tests to any type of external, atmospheric or mechanical agent.
The MIL-STD-810G is a military standard developed in the United States but universally recognized as a test for rugged devices. It includes about 24 laboratory test methods, covering a wide range of environments – from the ability to operate at high altitudes to the ability to survive mechanically induced shocks – even if they typically use a maximum of 10 to certify the strength of a terminal.
So the Doogee S70 and Doogee S80, which are also certified IP68 and IP69K, pass the drop test from 26 different positions, as well as resistance to dust, extreme temperatures, water, salt fog, and vibrations.
As you can see in the video above, therefore, the two rugged phones also meet the requirements of the MIL-STD-810G standard : they remain intact after falls of 1.21 meters in height in various positions and continue to operate after 6 hours covered by cornstarch, 96 hours in a hood with salt spray or in a chamber with temperatures from -30 ° to 55 ° Celsius. Below are the final results.
As in nature, even in the smartphone market (and especially in the rugged-phone market), the strongest survive. Doogee S70 will see that the crowdfunding campaign has already reached the goal for a first production, while Doogee S80 will arrive in the coming weeks and will be the first walkie-talkie smartphone. What else can the Chinese company have in mind for the coming year? Keep up to date by visiting the official website.
