How To Fix Doogee Mix 2 Smartphone Common Problems- Wi-Fi, Camera, SD, Sim, Bluetooth and More

Hot on the heels of releasing the Mix in June, Doogee is back to release the Mix 2 just four months later. The Mix 2 features a host of improvements like a significantly larger battery, an 18:9 display, and a refined design, but the headliner of the Mix 2 just might be the quad-camera setup. Today we talk about the solutions to the common problems of the Doogee Mix 2.

Dual-camera setups are becoming the norm of the rear of the phones in 2017, but it’s not often that you see dual front cameras as well. You’ll get a standard 8 MP 88-degree lens as well as a wider angle 130-degree lens that Doogee has designed to capture selfies with entire groups of friends. It’s calling it the “wefie,” but we will refuse to use that term from here on out. But enough of that, lets jump right in

Comments

  1. I have just got of the Doogee mix 2 phones. What a dissapointment. Won’t connect to a computer. Tried 3 different ones. One wi does 10 one Windows 7 and a MacBook. What makes this phone useless is the microphone. People who phoneme or ones I call cannot hear me. I have turned everything up, gone I toengineering mode and maxed the voice settings, all to no avail.
    I have sent messages to Doogee and banggood, who I bought it from . No reply from either.
    Given it took weeks to arrive even after paying foe express postage and then a phone that only let’s you hear the caller talking to you but they can’t hear you. Useless.
    I am now going they PayPal for a full refund and will get a different brand of Chinese phone. Doogee should read as dodgey.
