DOOGEE S61 Pro Review: A Transparent Design Rugged Phone with 20MP Night Vision Camera
The Doogee S61 Pro is a rugged smartphone with a focus on design. Designed to bring aesthetic satisfaction, the device is also lightweight and compact compared to most other phones in its class, so it can be easily operated with one hand. The visually pleasing device has the latest certifications and is also susceptible to most environmental challenges. This Article is aimed to introduce a detailed DOOGEE S61 Pro review to learn various specifications.

Let’s take a look at the design of the S61 Pro. As you can see from the exterior, this is not an ordinary triple defense phone, at least I haven’t seen a triple defense phone with a transparent back cover. It reminds me of the Xiaomi 8 Explorer Edition, which also has a transparent back cover. Through the back cover, you can see the circuit board inside the S61 Pro, a very geeky design style that I believe many people will like.
The two sides are made with a honeycomb anti-slip finish. The middle design that looks like a wireless charging coil is actually an NFC coil. The headphone jack is of course there, and the SIM card slot supports two Nano SIM cards and a TF card. Another thing I like is that it only weighs 266g, which is light for many rugged phones that are over 300g.
How it looks
Doogee s61 pro then features a 6″ HD + LCD screen with realistic colors and a resolution of 1600 x 720. Even with a peak brightness of 500 nits, it is very bright and not the highest. Meaning that they reflect colors as accurately as possible.
As with other tri-HD phones, there’s nothing special in the specs, and it’s basically good enough for what you need. Even so, one thing I like about it: it’s a full rectangular screen, not a perforated or teardrop screen. Rugged phones don’t have narrow bezels anyway, so why not give us a full screen, right?
How it goes in everyday life
The Li-ion 5180 mAh, the non-removable battery provides a good backup battery for smartphones. It is a low-maintenance battery. No cyclical discharge is required and charging can be done at will. Equipped with a large 5.180 mAh battery, it guarantees up to two days of autonomy. It also avoids the hassle of looking around for mobile power and charging sockets.
What surprised us was the guest section. On the rear mount, the two cameras have a symmetrical double ring design. The main one is the 48 MP Samsung S5KGM1S sensor with an f / 1.8 aperture and a 90-degree field of view. It is a sensor capable of shooting Full HD video at 30 FPS.
Even though the second Sony sensor helps you shoot at night, the camera sensor allows you to take great photos, especially in sunlight. It is a 20 MP Sony IMX350 camera with an aperture of f 2.0 surrounded by a particularly bright LED ring. The night vision camera takes pictures at 20 MP.
The S61 Pro uses a MediaTek Helio G35 processor. With an AnTuTu score of 137,000, you can see that it is only an entry-level processor. But that doesn’t mean it can’t play games. Thanks to PUBG’s optimization for entry phones, the super smooth graphics can be maintained at 30fps, which is considered an acceptable level.
The S61 Pro is an affordable phone, but it’s also one of the most exceptionally designed phones out there. Even for more money, you’d be hard-pressed to see a more special rugged phone. And who doesn’t like a transparent phone, right? Performance is good enough to use the standard Android ecosystem, but certainly not to push the gaming or 3D graphics side of things. Excellent dedicated buttons can launch quick functions like a flashlight or any app. Photography is also good, above expectations considering the type of attribution, and above average for the quality of rugged poses.
