DOOGEE MIX 2 unveiled recently, in which someone found it comes with a forehead and seems like less “bezel-less” than its predecessor. However, there is no smartphone can get rid of the “forehead”, because there are so many sensors and camera have to be put in the area like iPhone X leave a space of “fringe” to store these parts. Or the producers will have to find another place for the camera, like xiaomi Mi Mix2 did, put them in the below and make it the inconvenience to shoot.
There are pros and cons of these design. For example, the front camera in xiaomi Mi MIX 2 has complained about the inconvenience – it took more time to rotate the phone and then take a selfie. Keeping the camera in the middle is a good choice – if you are acceptable to the weird fringe in iPhone X. Therefore, the most visually appealing design in the front, for now, is the symmetrical and traditional one, like Samsung S8 and DOOGEE MIX 2 did – a “forehead” and a “chin” to keep it balanced and work properly.
DOOGEE MIX 2 keeps the “forehead” and cameras, sensors in it, and keeping it compact. As the picture shows, two cameras, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and receiver are put in the small space of forehead. The overall body is slim and friendly to hold, with a 5.99” display put in the small body which usually fits 5.5” display.
The dual camera set makes DOOGEE MIX 2 the first “quad-camera full display smartphone” in the world. What’s more, it’s not just a simple group of two usual cameras, the 130° wide angle lens makes it more fun and possibility to take pictures with DOOGEE MIX 2. To cooperate with the two cameras, DOOGEE MIX 2 provides a new “Wide-angle” mode, so switch from the usual “selfie” mode to “wide-angle” and you can quickly get a wider imaging area. Accordingly, the wide-angle camera can capture 8-10 people in one picture easily. So, maybe it’s time to get rid of your selfie stick if you have the MIX 2.
Sometimes producers care too much for the full display and take no account for the practicability, but DOOGEE MIX 2 is trying to balance. Keeping the proximity sensor and light sensor is important to adjust the display brightness, no matter you are making a call or reading in a dark environment.
Though it may look like a useless “forehead”, actually it is important to improve the user experience. Now the new device is on pre-order in DOOGEE official sites, where you can subscribe to get the latest news about it and win the giveaways.
