This terminal input range incorporates a front camera of 8MP, while the rear, signed by Sony (IMX219 model) is 13 Megapixel and includes LED flash, auto focus and stabilizer. The terminal has Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, A-GPS, OTA, OTG, Dual SIM (Micro SIM) and connectivity with 2G, 3G and 4G networks. The battery is 2,200 mAh, ensuring sufficient autonomy for a day of intensive, two to three days with normal use.

On the other hand we have the X5S Doogee, a terminal also input range but lower than the Y300, which is reflected in a much lower price and therefore more suitable for all budgets. This X5S also has a 5-inch IPS display with HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels), but in this case still has Android 5.1 operating system.

The SoC built-in X5S is the same as the previous model (MediaTek MTK 6735) but functioning in this case a 1 Ghz in its four cores, also accompanied by an ARM GPU Mali T720 but in this case the RAM has been reduced just 1 GB and 8 GB internal storage, but fortunately they are expandable up to 32 additional GB with micro SD memory card.

The cameras are also somewhat lower, because while the front has 5 Mpx, the rear has 8MP, but also has LED flash, auto focus and stabilizer software. Its battery is 2,400 mAh, and since the processor has a lower consumption this means that battery life is a bit higher, about two days intensive and between 3 and 4 days with moderate use.
