Overview

Leagoo M5

Leagoo M5 has been very popular even earlier than its launch. It was known as the first shockproof pure metal phone under $90. However, once it was started the Leagoo M5 fans divided into two groups. The first group of individuals was happy with the design, efficiency, and software, whereas the next one was challenging the manufacturer had thrown them. The latter was related to the fact some individuals had been ready to acquire a top-notch device for $90, and when they received their hands on a mid-range smartphone, it turned out the company had lied to them. To avoid such conditions let’s call the thing by their names – if it is an ultra-budget smartphone, be prepared to meet some disadvantageous features on it. This totally doesn’t mean we can’t purchase a good device for a little cash. Vice versa, if watching for good deals or reading proven reviews you’ll be able to realize which model is good to be bought or not. As for the Leagoo M5, the company decided to solve the issue by launching an enhanced version of this phone named simply as the Leagoo M5 Plus.

Design

Leagoo M5

At first, some details about the design and the technical side of the device. It’s 151.7 mm x 76.2 mm x 8.8 mm. Which is larger than an average mobile phone produced in 2016 (larger than its younger brother – Leagoo M5). League M5 Plus weighs 208 grams. This device comes in three colors: titanium gray, champagne gold (that’s the one that we’ve) and Galaxy white. It comes with three buttons on the right side of the device, and there’s a fingerprint sensor in the back (just under the camera). At the bottom of the screen, you’ve three buttons – Home, Menu, Return.

Display

Leagoo M5

The Leagoo M5 Plus has a 5.5-inch screen with the resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The density per sq. An inch of the screen is 267 PPI which quite normal in comparison with the Leagoo M5 which has the identical resolution, however, smaller screen. This device is packed with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4.0 which protects the screen from any scratches and provides the device silky smooth touch feeling.

Hardware and Software

Leagoo M5

Leagoo M5 Plus works on the Freeme OS 6.0. It has a MediaTek MT6737 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. There’s a 2GB RAM system memory which is sufficient enough for any kinds of actions performed on a mobile device (from texting to enjoying games). This is something that could be a little improved. For the cash you pay for this device – the RAM is superior. The internal storage is 16 GB which could be extended as much as 32 GB using a micro SD card.

Battery Life

Leagoo M5

This device comes with 2500 mAh battery. We would say this is another drawback of the Leagoo M5 Plus. When you have a mobile device with a 5.5-inch screen and 2 GB RAM it’s isn’t sufficient especially when you consider this device as a phablet.

Camera

Leagoo M5

We wished the improvement in Leagoo M5, and we received it – Leagoo M5 Plus is provided with 13 MP rear camera which takes very decent photos and shoots ok videos. It still isn’t the best camera however for such a reasonable mobile device – it is more than we could ask for. A few of the features include Geotagging, Face Beauty, HDR, Panorama Mode, Autofocus, Slow Motion Video, FHD Recording (1080p), 30 Frames per second. It comes with a 5 MP Front Facing camera.

Conclusion

Leagoo M5

After all these issues we can say the only real difference of the Leagoo M5 Plus and M5 is the 4G support conditioned with the processor replacement. The rest continues almost the identical however the dimensions. Nicely, there aren’t many features that can be enhanced maintaining the identical price range. However, the producer has made the Leagoo M5 Plus as a shockproof handset, and it’s is very solid. So if we need to describe this device we can say this the most effective options when it arrives at Shockproof 4G phablets coming under $110.
