Customer reviews – Doogee S96 Pro vs Ulefone Armor 10

Design

The S96 Pro shares the same design language as most rugged smartphones out there; after all, why reinvent the wheel when there’s no need to. Four rounded corners, four long sides, an industrial design where metallic grey, black rubber and bright yellow come together to produce what some might call a utilitarian design devoid of any attempt to look stylish or “cool”.

The Armor 10 faithfully follows the design philosophy of previous Ulefone smartphones. Reinforced rubber corners, a metal frame and a larger than average bezel. With a 6.7-inch display, it does qualify as a phablet, offering almost the same display size as a tablet like the Pebble Gear.

Dimension

Doogee S96 Pro

At 167 x 81 x 15.5mm for a weight of 307g, it is significantly larger and heavier than most – if not all – non-rugged smartphones sporting a comparable display size (6.22-inch).

Ulefone Armor 10

Its dimensions – 176.5 x 82.8 x 14.55mm – and weight (333g) means that it is a far cry, very far cry from the svelte profile of its non-rugged brethren. A big battery and additional protections – essential to get the MIL-STD-810G/IP69K certifications – unsurprisingly just make it heavier.

Ports

Doogee S96 Pro comes with the usual MIL-STD-810G/IP68/IP69K ratings and a circular island at the back that contains four camera sensors – arranged in a 2×2 matrix – and two banks of four LEDs (half of them traditional lights and half of them infrared lights) on each side. There’s a SIM/memory card tray above a customizable button on the left hand side. The right hand side contains a fingerprint scanner, a volume rocker and the power button while a flap secures a USB-C connector and a 3.5-inch audio port near the bottom.

A flap covering a Type-C connector is located at the bottom of the Armor 10. A volume rocker and the power button can be found on the right while a dedicated customizable button and the SIM/memory card tray can be found on the left side.

Doogee S96 Pro

the S96 Pro opted for a HD display with a 1520 x 720 pixel resolution. Combine that with a huge battery (6350mAh) and you will – in theory – get a longer battery life compared to the competition although apples-to-apples comparison is near impossible.

Elsewhere there’s a Mediatek Helio G90 which is a gaming-focused system-on-chip that packs two high speed cores and six smaller ones as well as an Arm Mali-G76 3EEMC4, which is a quad-core GPU. Extra points for Doogee for using 8GB low power DDR4 memory and 128GB UFS storage from Samsung, which is much better than the usual eMMC technology.

Ulefone Armor 10

Like all of its competitors and a lot of entry level 5G smartphones, the Armor 10 is powered by a Mediatek Dimensity 800 processor. The MT6873, as it is also known, combines a quartet of Cortex A76 cores with four A55 ones and an Arm Mali-G57 GPU set.

A combination of 8GB of LPDDR4x memory and 128GB of UFS2.1 storage means that this phone is as fast – when it comes to memory/storage – as a mainstream Windows laptop. The 6.67-inch display has a 2400 x 1080pixel display and Ulefone hasn’t confirmed if it is covered with a layer of scratch-resistant glass.

Other than the 5800mAh battery, Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5 connectivity and a 15W charger (5V,3A) there’s also an FM radio and five, yes five camera sensors, totaling a staggering 95-megapixel with the main one being a 64-megapixel model, the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1.
