I’ve been amazed how the price of technology has come down recently, with decent TV boxes selling for $30 to $50, and I’ve now been informed about Doogee X5 Pro, a quad core smartphone running Android 5.1, supporting LTE networks, and featuring with 2GB RAM, 16GB flash, and a 5″ HD screen selling for $80 shipped.

The phone runs Android 5.1 with allegedly OTA firmware update support. It ships with a battery, a USB cable, a power supply, and a power adapter. The processor is not the fastest with an Antutu score of 15,660 points (Note that a reviewer got 30,000+ points instead), but considering the price, this smartphone appears to be good value, and Doogee is a fairly well known brand among Chinese smartphone manufacturers.
Thank you Onebir!
