The Unihertz TickTock Android phone is a near-lookalike of the DooGee S98 rugged phone but costs much less. I don't know how the companies are related. The phone has a novel design and is delivered with a silicone protector sleeve, a screen protector, a USB-C to 3.5mm jack audio adapter, a USB-C fast charger (full charge about 5 hours) moderately ruggedized and a quickstart leaflet. It has two two programmable hardware buttons in addition to the usual on/off and volume buttons, programmed by default as flashlight and auxiliary screen switch.
The first most original feature of the phone is its weight: 339g with protector (compare with 190g for a Samsung Galaxy 9 with protector). The phone is much heavier than the usual smartphone because of a long-life fast-charge battery: mine arrived 2 days ago, and, in spite of heavy use copying apps and data from a Samsung phone (which went very smoothly), organising the start pages and messaging, it still has about 50% charge.
The second most original feature of the phone is the 'smartwatch' on the back, with a choice of clock-faces, step counter, compass, bubble level.
I don't have long-term experience with the phone, The build feels solid, operation is smooth and fast and all functions are expected. There is no manufacturer's bloatware, but a number of useful tools are provided. A minimal quick start guide is included, but a very detailed 114 page manual is available via a Google docs link on the Unihertz site (search for "Unihertz TickTock Manual").
The phone will be very useful on long trips, with no need to charge for several days. One might call it a "prepper's delight" for use in emergencies with electricity outage. For these purposes definitely recommended.
Good phone.. certainly better than bloatware rich main stream device makers. The team can still open up on more stringent privacy controls. Back ground data disable on some system tasks makes the device to enforce factory reset. This must be fixed.
Works well on all 3 major carriers on 5G and lower well (tested working on FMVOs as well)
Really love this phone. If you have large hands and not-so nimble fingers, this is a great phone with factory case. Gboard keyboard is a good size that cuts down on typos. Back Screen is described by other reviewers as a "gimmic" and I could not disagree more. Quick to open by a single customizable button to get to a smartwatch style clock, camera, or compass. There are several clock faces, but I prefer the one with an analog look, battery indicator, and pedometer which is great for long walks! Overall this 5-G phone is snappy, has lot's of interesting features such as a speedometer, Bubble level, decibel meter, and heart rate monitor. IMHO this is the best value phone of the 10 phones I've owned.
