How Open Is This Gadget?
The gadget in detailFigure 1:
The Doogee S98 Pro is a very robust device. It has a large battery with 6Ah and the screen with a diagonal of 6.3 inches, corresponding to 16cm makes reading comfortable.
The smartphone clearly stands out from the mass of competitors, especially with it's rugged design as well as a camera for night vision and a thermal imaging camera.
Package contentsFigure 2:
The S98 Pro comes with a 33W charger, a USB cable, a small lever to open the SIM card slot and a protective film for the display.
Sample photos main cameraFigure 3:
The main camera has a maximum resolution of 8000x6000 Pixel.
O + P were shot deep in the twilight and can be used for comparison with photos from the night vision and thermal imaging cameras.
Sample photos night vision cameraFigure 4:
Photos taken with the night vision camera, which is sensitive to infrared light and has a maximum resolution of 5120x3840 pixels.
In Image J, the IR LEDs are on. These lead to strong scattered light on the lens, which greatly affects the image quality.
Sample photos thermal cameraFigure 5:
The thermal imaging camera has a resolution of 256x192 pixels. However, the S98 Pro places a photo from the main camera over the thermal image and thus calculates a mix of both images.

I tested the selfie camera under different lighting conditions with a model who simply looks better than me ;-)
A: Daylight room
B: Low illumination
C: Quite dark, automatic long exposure, the display acts as a "flash light"
Note: S98 Pro's face recognition doesn't respond to teddy bears...
My personal conclusionThe Doogee S98 Pro brings you through the day with ease due to the large battery. The possibility of outsourcing data to a micro SD card or a USB stick makes you independent of cloud storage. With the night vision and thermal imaging camera, the smartphone is great for photo experiments. The computing power allows smooth work.
Regarding the software, a closer look at the manufacturer's website should provide information about this (and answeres your question indirectly if you can't find anything).
The bootloader can be unlocked, which opens up the possibility of flashing custom ROMs. Unfortunately, it is common practice to exclude devices modified in this way from warranty services. Where are the days gone, when you could feed a computer with any kind of software...
