Doogee T10 review: A tablet with 4G LTE support for under $200, what’s not to love

Published on



Dougie reached out to me and asked if I’d be willing to take a look at her T10 tablet, which was launched in November. Initially, I was excited to review what I thought would be a rugged tablet, but as it turns out, it’s just a low-end “regular” tablet. However, it comes with a few surprises, read on to find out more.

As you can see from the specs, this tablet doesn’t offer any breakthrough features other than cheap entry to mobile data support through the use of a SIM card. There is also no NFC or fingerprint scanner on board.

what’s in the box

The standard rate packaging, the cardboard box includes:

  • TPU + leather case Anti-explosion heated film. (Gift)
  • charging cable (gift)
  • EU plug
  • User manual + limited warranty certificate
  • SIM tool
  • capacitive stylus (gift)

Yes, some included items are included as a gift; Although it doesn’t appear that the “TPU skin case” can be bought separately on DoogeeMall, or it is included in the “anti-explosion” barrier film, which I can only guess is the pre-installed screen protector film. I contacted my contact to clarify this.

The tablet itself has an all-glass front and aluminum back that Doji calls an “aviation-grade unibody design,” we’ll let that slide since they’re known for a rugged military-grade design with all the requisite credentials for their rugged phones. The USB Type-C port can be found at the top, along with the power and volume buttons. The SIM and SD card slots are located on the right side, and the stereo speakers are both located on the left side. The speakers work downwards when viewing media in landscape mode.

At just over half a kilo, the tablet becomes heavy when held for extended periods of time in one hand. I’d say it’s not comfortable to use as an e-reader in bed, as it becomes too heavy for that purpose, and the back of the tablet is slippery without the case, so you’ll end up using two hands to hold this device when the cover stand isn’t in use. There is also 1 cm of frame around the screen which is useful because it is easier not to register accidental touches on the screen.

Doogee included a pre-installed screen protector and shipped it with a case that can be used as a stand in landscape mode for watching media. It’s not as great as some of the tri-folds I’ve used for some Samsung Galaxy Tabs I’ve owned in the past. It seems to only really work in landscape mode and isn’t really suitable for use as a stand in portrait mode, although it’s certainly possible to prop it up like an open book.

According to the specifications, the screen is certified by TÜV Rheinland for Low Blue Light, which means it protects your eyes in the dark and prevents long-term eye fatigue Sessions.


The Doogee T10 comes with Android 12 pre-installed, and thankfully it’s almost Completely stock, I couldn’t find any 3rd party apps installed. Doogee included Quickstep as the launcher, it’s also what it uses with its rugged phones, but that’s about as stock as you can get. All Doogee devices come with one year of warranty and support, so you can expect maybe one upgrade to Android 13.

As you can see from the screenshots above, it’s a pretty stock experience, the last image shows all the installed apps, no third party bloat to be seen here!

The T10 comes with Google Widevine L1 support, which means you’ll be able to stream in full HD on places like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and more, making it an even more interesting choice for media consumption along with mobile data support. If like me, earlier this year, you find yourself on the Eurostar en route to London from Amsterdam, you’ll quickly realize that the built-in Wi-Fi isn’t enough to stream Netflix, I ended up having to create a portable hotspot with my phone and laptop. If I only had the T10 with me, the SIM’s cellular data would cover me.


Because people love benchmarks, I installed Geekbench 5, which tests single-core and multi-core power, for everything from checking your email to taking a picture to playing music, or all at once. The Compute benchmark tests the system’s potential for gaming, image processing or video editing.

As you can see from the benchmarks above, this is no powerhouse. The single-core score of 306 comes in lower than the Redmi Note 7 tablet, launched in 2019, with its mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, which incidentally is the lowest comparison in the test. The multi-core score does come in slightly higher, 1,269, beating the same Xiaomi tablet, which scored just a few points lower at 1,264, which is again the lowest example in the test.

It’s definitely a device where you won’t want to do much in the way of multitasking and quick app switching or even heavy gaming.

The speakers are quite loud and sound a bit thin, but luckily there’s a headphone jack and Bluetooth 5.0 support, so you can plug in just about any headphones or earphones you want. Call quality was good, however the person I called said I kept dropping out when I was talking, I haven’t had this problem myself, but who uses a tablet to make phone calls anyway?


After making sure to charge 100%, I played a 12 hour YouTube video at 1080p with 40% volume, and after 2 hours the battery percentage was 78%, and after 6 hours it was 32%. I think it’s fair to say that the 8,300 mAh battery has enough juice, when fully charged, to get you through three two-hour movies, and you’ll still have enough battery to check and reply to emails and surf the web.

While my test isn’t a battery stress test, we’re confident it will last as long, if not longer, than many of the flagship tablets currently shipping with 8,000 mAh batteries (looking at you Samsung Galaxy Tab S8) but you’ll only pay a quarter of the price for that invested capacity. However, it must be said that this tablet does not support reverse charging, which would have been a nice option considering that Doogee’s rugged phones do.


For less than $200 you can stick a data sim in it and not worry about getting on Wi-Fi, which can be useful when traveling and public Wi-Fi is either unavailable or just plain awful, as was the case on my trip on this Eurostar. summer. As laptops and ultrabooks keep getting smaller and lighter, and smartphone screens keep getting bigger, it’s harder and harder to justify lugging around a tablet.

However, with the mobile data option included, it does become a tempting choice for media consumption with Full HD support at a very low price. Let’s not forget the massive battery this thing has too. At 8,300 mAh, it will get you through the day, or a long trip without having to worry about trimming it or turning it off after watching one movie on Netflix.

I think it has a use case, and it’s not going to break the bank, but I just feel like Doogee missed out here by not launching it as a rugged tablet. It can probably fetch double the price with the right rugged credentials, and then it becomes an interesting choice for workers in the field.

You can currently order it on Ali Express for $190, or m Dougie Direct for $189.99 After applying the promo code T10 during checkout. Shipping to the EU and US is free, and they say on their website that they can ship between 3-7 business days if it’s stocked in a local warehouse, but it can take longer if it’s shipping from China.

Finally, Doogee only offers one year of warranty and software support, so that’s something to consider if you decide to purchase it, but then again it doesn’t cost an arm or a leg, so you have to decide if it has a place in your smart device inventory.
