One of the strongest Chinese manufacturers is “sticking” in the market is Leagoo, thanks to its cheap but very good quality mobiles. This is the case of its new launch: the Leagoo M5 Plus. It is a very complete Android phone to be entry-level, with a super competitive price. And is that for a Phablet like this, with another brand we would normally ask for double.

In terms of design, we find a nice terminal, rugged and made of polycarbonate. The frame that surrounds the phone is aluminum and on the back features an elegant brushed finish. Its 193 grams of weight fall within the canons that govern this type of devices. The same happens with 8.5 mm thick.
The Leagoo M5 Plus is part of the Phablets category thanks to its 5.5-inch IPS panel with 2.5D effect. It also has an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 laminate.

A low-cost with excellent performance
Inside we find a Cortex-A53 Mediatek MT6737 quad-core chip, running at 1.3 GHz. It is also conveniently backed by a Mali-T720 graphics and 2 GB of RAM. For internal storage it has been provided with 16 GB, expandable with microSD card up to 128 GB capacity.
All tests have shown that despite being a smartphone quite economical, the Leagoo M5 Plus will exceed the expectations of users. And is that despite being considered a basic terminal, the features offered by this low-cost mobile are mid-range.

If we take a look at the cameras we will be surprised. The main camera is 13 megapixels and sports a sensor manufactured by Sony, with f / 2.2 aperture and dual LED flash. The front reserved for selfies and videoconferences by Skype is 5 MP.
The battery is the only point that leaves us some doubts. Its 2,500 mAh capacity offers a range of 24 hours, according to the manufacturer. But it would not have been wrong to increase it to 3000 mAh. That yes, it is removable, which is always an advantage.
Fingerprint sensor, 4G and more

Unlike most cheap mobiles, the Leagoo M5 Plus gives us a fingerprint sensor, which will make our smartphone a safer terminal. Nor can we forget that it includes a dedicated audio chip Awinic 7, which reinforces the bass.
It is also very difficult to find in a phone as cheap as this one, features that are more typical of a mid-range terminal, such as 4G LTE (850/900/1800/2100/2600 MHz) connectivity. It also incorporates a 3G slot (900/2100 MHz), GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0. All this running under the controls of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
Comparison between the Leagoo M5 Plus and the Leagoo M5
In case you did not know, the Leagoo M5 Plus is a renewed version of its predecessor, the Leagoo M5, which we have already discussed on another occasion. The main difference between the two lies in the size of the screen.
While the Plus model reaches 5.5 inches, the original has to conform to only 5 “. In terms of resolution and the characteristics of the screen, both models share the same features.
Another aspect that marks the differences between the two is the camera. The Leagoo M5 combines 5 megapixels in the rear camera (interpolated to 8 MP) and 2 megapixels in the front (interpolated to 5 MP). A classic pack in input terminals. Instead, the Leagoo M5 Plus climbs a couple of steps to catch up with the “medium”. Although it maintains the 5 MP in the front, the main one can boast to count on a Sony sensor of 13 megapíxeles.
As for the internal hardware there are some improvements in the new model Plus, with the addition of a CPU also Mediatek, but significantly better. The memories stay the same. The battery hardly increases its capacity. And that yes, the Leagoo M5 Plus punches the table integrating the connectivity 4G, which marks distances with his younger brother, the Leagoo M5.
