Leagoo Ratings

Top Leagoo smartphones

In the short period during which Leagoo exists, the company's catalog has grown significantly. At the same time, the manufacturer does not focus on quantity to the detriment of quality.

The Chinese brand Leagoo is quite young - the first smartphone appeared only in 2014. However, by the 2017th annual sales of the company OTEDA Group, which owns the brand, is estimated at hundreds of millions of dollars. Most of the revenue so far is brought by consumers from the Middle Kingdom - which is contrary to the company's strategy, according to which the brand should be international. For the sake of promoting the brand abroad, Leagoo even entered into a partnership agreement with the British football club Tottenham.

No marketing effort would have paid dividends if the company's product portfolio was insufficient. But, unfortunately, the competitors, with the Leagoo lineup, are in perfect order - the company is considered one of the most prolific producers in China, for 2018 its catalog includes over 20 items. This article will tell you about the best models and current product lines of the company.

What series of Leagoo smartphones exist in 2018?

Over time, Leagoo abandoned many named series (Shark, Lead) and began to use letter notation. All smartphones of the League catalog in 2018 are divided into 7 series:

  • S - relatively expensive frameless gadgets in the amount of two: S8 and S8 Pro . It is not difficult to guess what kind of flagship these models are imitating.
  • KIICAA is a series of “special” smartphones, which include Mix and Power.
  • T - inexpensive metal smartphones with excellent cameras and fingerprint sensors .
  • M - devices, the hallmark of which in 2018 is the presence of huge frameless displays.
  • V - only one Venture 1 smartphone, distinguished by a curious “leather” design, is related to this series.
  • P - devices with capacious batteries.
  • Z is a budget series whose smartphones are not yet available to the Russian user.

But in Russia you can find the Elite series on sale, although Leagoo does not officially distribute them.

Further we will tell about several remarkable gadgets of the Chinese brand.

The KIICAA Mix FullHD display with a 5.5-inch diagonal is covered with a protective glass Gorilla Glass 4 and occupies 90% of the front surface of the smartphone.

Most impressive

  • Chipset: 8-core Helio P25, 2.6 GHz
  • Screen: 5.99 inches, FullHD + resolution
  • Battery: 3050 mAh
  • RAM: 6 MB
  • Built-in storage : 64 GB

Price : from 16 293 rubles

The analogue of the famous "Korean" Leagoo S8 Pro - quite "fresh" smartphone; It came out only in the fall of 2017. The pro-version has the technical characteristics much higher than the usual Leagoo S8. This applies to both the processor and the amount of RAM (the S8 Pro has twice the RAM) and the main camera. In addition, the S8 Pro is simply larger because of the screen, which is almost 6-inch.

The only thing that the advanced S8 from Leagoo loses is the front camera. A simple S8 is provided with a dual front-facing 8 megapixel + 5 megapixel sensor with OmniVision sensors. On the Pro-model, the selfie camera is single; Its resolution is 13 megapixels. However, if you believe the reviews, a pair of "eyes" does not give a big dividend.

Benefits :

  • Bright frameless display with FullHD + resolution.
  • The impressive amount of RAM LPDDR.
  • Support fast charging.
  • Fast fingerprint sensor - triggered in 10th of a second.
  • Modern and "smart" processor.

Disadvantages :

  • Mediocre autonomy - 3050 mAh battery capacity is not enough for a smartphone with a 6-inch screen.
  • Own "OS" Leagoo OS 4.0, which, though built on the 7th Android, can disappoint the user.
  • High price - S8 Pro is much more expensive than the usual S8.

Conclusion

The appearance of the models S8 and S8 Pro marked the departure of the company Leagoo outside the budget segment. The Chinese manufacturer began to storm the average price segment, in which the requirements for gadgets, an order of magnitude stricter, but the competition is not so high. It’s hard to imagine how successful the attempt to take a “place under the sun” with a gadget-copy will be, but Leagoo’s desire to reach a new level can be understood - its smartphones are too good for the budget segment.
