Performance and connectivity
The MTK6750T Octa Core processor is clocked up to 1.5 GHz, and in combination with a quite decent Mali-T860 graphics chipset and as much as 4 GB RAM memory, we get great performance for daily tasks like browsing websites or playing games on Android 7.0. This hardware is sufficiently powerful for fast working user interface and using most apps, even in multitasking.
The phone supports two SIM cards in Dual SIM, Dual Standby mode, which means this is one smartphone for work and home. 6th category LTE allows for very fast wireless data transfer up to 300 Mbps.
Display and cameras
The 5.5 inch SHARP touchscreen has excellent color reproduction that you will find in smartphones priced below $150 and displays 97% of colors from the NTSC palette. IPS technology provides ultimate viewing angle of 178 degrees, and a 2.5D glass with metal unibody gives it a classy look worth of a flagship. The contrast ratio of 1500: 1 and Full HD 1920 x 1080 px display means that you will get razor sharp images. Watching videos and photos or reading e-books on this smartphone is a pure visual pleasure.
Both the front and back cameras take great pictures. A 13.0MP lens is used in the front camera, while back camera has dual lens combo 13.0MP+5.0MP. The back camera makes beautiful bokeh pictures and has an instant 0.1 s autofocus that facilitates quality photos, even in low light. The front camera makes it easy to shoot great soft-light selfies and has a wide-angle lens.
Ceramic fingerprint sensor located on the front operates at a 360 degree angle. Thanks to Smart Touch technology it is also extremely fast and recognizes owner in no more than 0.1 seconds.
There are certainly phones with a bigger battery than the 3000 mAh available in the Leagoo T5, but this cell is actually better than it seems at first glance. Leagoo claims that it can work for 36 hours of normal use and in standby mode it can operate for up to 10 days. In addition, the 5V 2A Quick Charging feature allows instant recharging. The manufacturer also praises the battery’s durability, which retained 80% capacity in a test of thousand charging cycles, so it’s pretty good result.
Classy minimalist design, rounded corners and two fashionable colors: classic black or timeless champagne gold makes it quite a looker. Good, balanced parameters and great value for money prompt us to recommend Leagoo T5 to any user, who wants to pick up a reliable and good looking smartphone without paying for a fancy logo.
