  1. My Note 2 is getting so old and the new ones are just so expensive. I think I like the Doogee Mix 2 phablet. Its a good size and the price is good. The 64 gig storage is amazing and its an android (which I much prefer). Thanks for the extensive reviews.

  2. I like the fact that this phone are unlocked worldwide. How does the signal compare to phone from networks in the US? I will be looking to buy a phone in 2018. I will revisit your review before I buy. Thanks for the information.
