While I wouldn’t pay top dollar for this right now, at the right price, this kind of spec is more than enough for a lot of people.
I’m a huge fan of Doogee devices, and this tablet does not disappoint.
I’m not going to try to convince you that the Doogee U10 is the best tablet you can buy. it’s not like that. Instead, I want you to think about what you actually want or need from a tablet.
- Decent screen ideal for indoor use with nifty blue light filter?
- A processor with enough power to keep your Android OS and apps running smoothly?
- Is there enough RAM and storage to satisfy the average user?
- A battery with enough power to let you watch six hours of video?
- 3.5mm headphone port enables you to continue using your favorite wired headphones?
Well, all of the above is what you get from the U10.

Even the cameras – an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera – are suitable for selfies, social media photography, video conferencing and even taking photos in the field for reporting. Sure, if you’re used to the cameras on an iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone, you’ll be disappointed, but if you just want a tablet with a good camera, this is what you need.
You also get a silicone protective case and charger for your tablet in the box.
All for $120.
Is U10 perfect? no.
The screen is great for indoor use, but I find it a bit dim for outdoor use in bright sunlight. If you want a tablet screen that’s easy on the eyes in the summer sun, you’ll have to spend more money on something like the iPad, which has a high-pixel-density retina display that’s 60% brighter than the screen on the U10.
The speakers are also a bit small, especially for bass-heavy music or movies, but I compare them to the iPhone and iPad Pro.

For $120, they are excellent speakers.
And for $120, I really can’t find a fault with this tablet. If you want the best, the issue isn’t the tablet, it’s how much you’re willing to spend.
