Mil-spec (Military standard) phones are becoming increasingly popular and always have a strong, masculine aesthetic. Something like our very own Iron Man who comes all wrapped in a metal suit and it doesn’t get sturdier than that! DOOGEE brings this vision to life with their latest mil-spec phone, the S88 pro. While this is Iron Man-inspired, you are about to find out what makes it distinctively closer to War Machine.
This phone is top-notch, it is IP68, IP69K, and MIL-STD 810G-rated. IP68 means fit enough to withstand dust, dirt, and sand, and are resistant to submersion up to a maximum depth of 1.5m underwater for up to 30 minutes. IP69K is a standard for Ingress Protection which means the phone provides protection against entry or “ingress” of solid objects and/or moisture. MIL-STD 810G is a series of drop tests designed by the US Department of Defense to determine the “environmental worthiness and overall durability of material system design” and I think iPhones need to take this up.
The phone is encased in a metal frame, strengthened with an inner waterproof structure, reinforced corners, and a soft high-density polyethylene cover. It also features an oleophobic-coated Corning Gorilla glass cover over its 6.3” Full HD display which means it is oil-resistant especially when we use our fingers to constantly operate it. The S88 runs on Android 10 and comes with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of ROM, and an Octa-Core processor making it as efficient as it is durable.
And now coming to my favorite part about this phone – its special Iron Man-inspired design! Just like the real suit, the phone has two glowing ‘eyes’ at the back that lets you feel the superhero’s power in your palm. For extra power, it comes with a great 10,000mAh battery that can charge the phone for around a week or double up as a power bank to wirelessly charge other devices. The phone also includes a front-facing 16MP Samsung camera, rear-facing 21MP Sony IMX230 camera, a proximity sensor, thermometer, a magnetic compass, customizable keys, and fingerprint unlocking. This phone will survive 2020.
