It is almost impossible to imagine the life of a modern person without a smartphone. It provides connectivity, allows you to browse data on the Internet, makes available playback of music tracks and media files, and much more.

However, this is not enough for humans. Therefore, he came up with a class of protected devices that, among other things, are not afraid of water, dirt and dust, have strong cases and capacious batteries. Most of them have the same capabilities as regular smartphones.

Doogee has achieved significant success in the development of such gadgets. This Chinese manufacturer is a subsidiary of the KDV concern, which has made a reputation for manufacturing and servicing telecommunications equipment.

All products of the company are of good quality, high functionality and affordable prices. Recently, a sub-brand Homtom was created, which specializes in the production of budget products.

Let's take a closer look at one of the latest Doogee products and its Samsung counterpart.

Gadget with plug-in modules

Modern smartphones cannot be upgraded, but some manufacturers have found a way out here too. Not so long ago, modular technology was used in their production. It allows you to change some of the characteristics of the device, for example, increase the capacity of its battery, change the camera or turn the gadget into a game console.

This decision was relevant during the development of the Doogee S90, and recently the company introduced a more advanced model.


The main nuance of the Doogee S90 model is the availability of replaceable modules, which significantly expand the list of device capabilities. They all have a magnetic mount. These include:

  • an additional 5000 mAh battery extending the autonomy of the device;
  • a camera with fast (f / 1.8) wide-angle optics, which is suitable for panoramic and night shooting;
  • a radio station with a range of 400-480 MHz;
  • a gamepad that can be used to turn a smartphone into a game console.


The gadget received a 6.18-inch screen with Full HD + resolution. He is entitled to a shock-resistant case with titanium inserts. It is IP68 / IP69K water and dust resistant and MIL-STD-810G certified. This protects the smartphone under extreme conditions of use. He is not afraid of falls on hard surfaces, pressure and temperature drops, immersion in water.


Doogee S90 in its construction is based on eight-core processor MediaTek Helio P60, equipped with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of ROM. A fingerprint scanner and face recognition functionality are responsible for security.

Admirers of the brand are looking forward to the release of the Doogee S90 Pro based on the Helio P70 processor. It will be equipped with 24W fast charging and a new add-on module with a built-in 5G modem.

Device with removable battery, NFC and water resistant

The Korean company, without unnecessary pathos, presented the Samsung XCover 4s smartphone, which has expanded the line of protected devices.

The device is made using gray tones in design, which have become traditional for the company. To prevent slipping out of hands, it received a textured surface of the back cover and ribbed edges on the sides.

The display has a 5-inch diagonal and a 16: 9 aspect ratio.


To facilitate control, there are three buttons underneath that have a mechanical principle of operation. To increase the functionality, there is the possibility of changing the battery, now almost none of the manufacturers make batteries removable.

The product is not afraid of water, as evidenced by the standard according to which its case is made - IP68.
