We all know that DOOGEE likes to experiment with new designs on rugged phones. If you remember, the S98 series we reviewed earlier looked different from other rugged phones. Today we’ll take a look at their new design, the S61 Pro, which once again refreshes our perception of rugged phone design. This Article is aimed to introduce a detailed DOOGEE S61 Pro review to learn various specifications.

Design & Appearance
The main focus of the Doogee S61 Pro is its design that combines aesthetics and durability. The brand decided to challenge the notion that rugged smartphones don’t offer customizable appearance options. Doogee has created four different back cases that can be changed. Our review unit comes with a clear back cover. It has a glossy finish and dark edges. The area where the NFX module can be seen. The electronic scheme visible on both sides of the dual-ring camera module is printed on the plastic back cover and does not represent the actual electronics.
IP68 | IP69K | MIL-STD-810H Certification
As for the measures, it is one of the most compact and rugged phones. It is 81.4 mm wide, 167.4 mm high, and has a gap of 14.6 mm. The weight is 266 grams, certainly not feather, but still included in this type of terminal. It is IP68 and IP69K MIL-STD-810H certified.
By measurement, it can withstand a drop from a height of one and a half meters and is resistant to dust, surviving underwater for about 30 minutes at 1.5 meters. Resistance is also due to the presence of Corning Gorilla Glass in front, although we have not found more precise specifications.
The Doogee S61 Pro features a 6-inch IPS screen with HD+ resolution (720 x 1600 pixels) and Corning Gorilla Glass for protection. As we have already mentioned in the design section of this review, the display is from an older generation, with non-curved corners and thick bezels. The display settings are standard for Android 12 smartphones. They allow you to switch between light and dark themes and turn on/off automatic brightness, adaptive brightness, and night light. You can choose from a wide range of wallpapers, charging animations, font sizes and display sizes. The screen colour modes offer, as always, a choice between standard, vivid or cool colours, but these are not pre-calibrated colour modes.
Fortunately, AGM sees this prospect as critical and has equipped the new H5 Pro with a massive 7,000 mAh battery. A powerful device needs a powerful battery, and 7,000 mAh is more than enough for everyday needs. Surprisingly, the H5 Pro is said to give you 423H standby, 21H video playback, and 10H gaming. There is a wireless charging dock there to support the charging operation. It is more convenient, simple, and reliable.
The processing power of this model depends on the 64-bit MediaTek Helio G35 chipset. It is manufactured using TSMC’s 12nm FinFET process and features the ARMv8.2-A architecture with an octa-core CPU comprising four A53 cores at 2.3GHz and another quad-core at 1.8GHz. The graphics department is managed by the 680 MHz IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU. On board is 6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of expandable internal memory. Of these 128GB, 116GB is available for user use.
The robustness of the Doogee S61 is one of the best points. This is the terminal we recommend primarily to those who perform everyday tasks in extreme conditions. Let’s consider, for example, a terminal at risk of falling or for manual work handled without too much attention. From this point of view, it looks very robust, even if aesthetically it does not give up some of its refinement and delicacy, such as the transparent back.
