Doogee has been at the center of the device market recently since several attractive models were launched. In addition to the presence of the surprise Aurora Blue Doogee V that debuted at the Hong Kong Electronic Exhibition, the manufacturer also presented the Doogee BL9000 that should be one of its most outstanding creations. When mentioning the Doogee BL series, the first impression that comes to mind is that of a large battery.
This phone is designed for people who want large phones that will last days on a single charge. Therefore, it is not light or thin and it is possible that it does not pretend to be anything other than a mobile phone with a large battery. Because of this, the question is born, is this all you have to offer? Pay attention to the remarkable design and the outstanding features of the BL9000! Today we will review it with as much detail as possible.
Doogee BL9000: Design and construction
The phone is surprisingly heavy and thick; having measures of 16.27 x 7.81 x 1.38cm plus a weight of 275g. It is designed to look professional or for business, with the “Smoky Black” and “Silver Edge” color options. Keep in mind that if you are looking for a phone with a large battery, a great performance but do not mind that it is a bit heavy and thick, this is a great option.
The new Doogee smartphone does not follow the “borderless” trend, the screen bezels are clearly visible, both on the lower and upper side, however, they are significantly thinner than on the left and right. Also, there is no presence of a start button on the front, so the capacitive buttons are included on the screen. The fingerprint sensor has also been moved to the back.
As for the construction, it has a metal frame with delicate anti-slip lines, which will be a great experience for those who use it. In addition, it has a plastic cover with a look of imitation leather in smoked black that makes up most of the back panel. This provides a high-end and luxury commercial image. For practical use, the leather texture offers an extremely comfortable grip for users. In general, this design can reap a number of business-style phone lovers.
Continuing with the back panel, below is the Doogee logo. But the most outstanding thing is in the upper part where we have an area where the double camera and the fingerprint sensor are located, which is made of several processes that include CNC cutting and electroplating to make it look more elegant, from the point of artistic view. Finally, on the right is the power button below the two volume keys that have been redesigned with a flat size which is much easier to press; On the opposite side, we can insert our SIM cards in the tray dedicated to it.
Doogee BL9000: Screen
The IPS LCD screen is presented with the famous 18:9 aspect ratio and a size of 5.99 inches. So, the overall dimensions of the phone are due to the fact that it will offer us a really interesting viewing experience.

The most important problem for a frequent traveler can be the charging problems and the Doogee BL9000 totally solves this with a 5V/5A fast charger. This low voltage, high current charger solution greatly improves the transmission speed, Doogee calls it “flash charging”. That’s why this smartphone only requires 10 minutes to fill 30% of energy, enough for intensive use of 5 hours.
Also, due to an MCU chip inserted in the battery lines, and the charger; the electric current of 5A can pass through the charger without problems.
