This new smartphone promises a five-day battery life

As a fairly low-end Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Doogee doesn’t often garner interest in the west.

However, its latest phone has a pretty unique feature that has been grabbing headlines, with the Doogee S6000 boasting a bewilderingly large 6,000mAh battery.

To put that into perspective, the iPhone 6 Plus has a significantly smaller 2,915mAh battery.

The new Samsung Galaxy S6, meanwhile, utilises an even teenier 2,550mAh power supply.

Earlier this year, we reported on the Acer Liquid X2, which used a 4,000mAh cell. Even that pales in comparison to the Doogee S6000.

Most users will easily be able to squeeze two days of usage out of a 6,000mAh battery, with lighter users sure to push three or four. Doogee claims five days are possible under normal usage.

What’s also interesting is that you’re not exactly getting a brick handset either; the Doogee S6000 looks nice and measures just 9mm in thickness.

What’s more, the S6000 can utilise MediaTek’s PumpExpress Plus fast-charging tech, which allows a 0-75 per cent charge in 30 minutes.

So what else do you get for your money? Inside is a 1.5GHz MediaTek processor 1GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch 720p display, 16GB of built-in storage, two cameras (8-megapixel and 5-megapixel), and Android 5.1 Lollipop OS.

That all costs $139.99, which translates to just over £90. Expect release in August, although a UK launch is neither confirmed nor likely.
