Leagoo T5 Smartphone with metal housing and 4 GB RAM for 131€ reservable

Three weeks ago, we presented the Leagoo M5 Edge, a budget smartphone for under € 100. This time it is about the already reserved Leagoo T5, which with a presented end consumer price of approx. 175€ is no more budget smartphone, but higher demands. Accordingly, it would also like to convince with a better hardware, whether on the paper we have already looked at.

Design

With the T5 Leagoo is based on a simple but elegant design. It is trying to keep the smartphone very slim, because with 0.79 cm, the T5 is a good bit thinner than the more affordable M5 Edge. In addition, Leagoo is based on a metal unibody, which means that the battery will not be exchangeable, but one may hope for high-quality processing.

True to the slogan “All black everything” we presented the black version of the T5 here.

 

The 5.5 inch Full HD display is designed to round off the visual appearance . Here is again placed on 2.5D gorilla glass, this time fortunately but with a 1920 * 1088P resolution. In addition, the IPS display with 178 ° viewing angle is also to be seen from more unusual angles.

Hardware

For the hardware, Leagoo uses the MT6750T Octa-Core processor from MediaTek, which clocks at  1.5 GHz. The graphics chip  Mali-T860 graphics chip is an IGP (integrated graphics processor). Above all, Leagoo wanted to upgrade its workplace and main memory in comparison to its cheaper models, and that is exactly what happened: With a Samsung 4 GB RAM memory a very good price-performance ratio should be given. The 64 GB internal memory is large enough not to have to install a microSD card (which would be possible), but the slot for dual sim can use.

Leagoo T5 Hardware
With 4 GB RAM, games and more challenging programs should run well in comparison to the budget smartphone M5 Edge.

 

 

Due to the larger display, of course, a larger battery must also be produced. With 3,000 mAh, the Leagoo T5 moves in the middle of similar smartphones. It should be easy to get around the day, but of course it is not one of the battery monsters from China that are flooding the market lately. The operating system is based on Android 7.0 based Leagoo OS 2.0.

No battery monster from China, rather a noble business and everyday smartphone.

 

Altogether the T5 is equipped with three Kameralinsen. Of this, especially the 13 MP front camera is very promising and additionally equipped with an instant beauty function, good selfies should not be a big problem for the camera. As a main camera, we installed a dual-lense camera here, which once with 13 and once 5 MP for this price class of solid values. Also, the smartphone can produce the so-called bokeh effect , through which one can shoot aesthetic portraits.

The dual-lense camera is located in the upper corner of the metal housing.

Connectivity and extras

Fortunately, Leagoo continues to rely on LTE Band 20. In addition, the T5 comes standard with Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and GPS. The use of two Sim cards via Dual-Sim is possible, but not in combination with an SD card, since this shares the slot with the second SIM. As a feature, the T5 is again equipped with a fingerprint sensor, which is intended to be quickly and comfortably unlocked within 0.1 seconds. Otherwise, there is not much more to say about the smartphone, except perhaps that it still has a jack port and a microUSB port.

The Leagoo T5 has the (still) usual outputs: jack connection and microUSB.

Conclusion

The Leagoo T5 has the potential to become a truly powerful smartphone with a nice camera for its price class. With 4 GB of RAM and an operating system based on Android 7.0, all requirements are fulfilled. If the unfortunately not exchangeable battery can withstand, and the Leagoo OS 2.0 no big mistake brings, you get here a chic everyday and work smartphone with LTE volume 20. The end-user price will probably be around 175 €, but if you already reserve it on Leagoos official website, you will receive a voucher worth approximately 44 €. So you get the smartphone just for about 131 €, which is a good price for the given hardware.
