Review LEAGOO M5 Plus
Yet another promising budget device from Leagoo. Some may call it a phablet, for us it is an interesting proposition which is definitely worth checking out. Want to know our thoughts about it? Keep on reading!


At first, some information about the design and the technical side of the device. It is 151.7 mm long, 76.2 mm wide and 8.8 mm thick - which is definitely bigger than an average mobile phone produced in 2016 (bigger than its younger brother - Leagoo M5). What comes with being so big is being so heavy and there is no exception here. League M5 Plus weighs 208 grams which is a lot for a smartphone (that is the weight of some of the tablets). Despite the heaviness, it is a very slim device which can be used in one hand but takes a while to get used to that. For us it was not a problems - we may however imagine that for people with smaller hands it can actually be quite a challenge. This device comes in three colors: titanium grey, champagne gold (that is the one that we have) and galaxy white. It has three buttons on the right side of the device and there is a fingerprint sensor in the back (just below the camera). At the bottom of the screen you have three buttons - Home, Menu, Return. 


The Leagoo M5 Plus comes with a 5.5 inch screen with the resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The density per square ich of the screen is 267 PPI which quite normal compared to the Leagoo M5 which has the same resolution but smaller screen. This device is packed with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4.0 which protects the screen from any scratches and gives the device silky smooth touch feeling. It is very unusual for a budget smartphone to be shockproof - but this actually is! Good job, Leagoo!


This device comes with 2500 mAh battery. We would say this is another downside of the Leagoo M5 Plus. When you have a mobile device with 5.5 inch screen and 2 GB RAM it is isn't enough especially if you consider this device as a phablet. If you're not doing anything too power-consuming, it should last you 12 hours. However, when playing games or surfing the Internet, we recommend carrying a charger or a powerbank with you (you can also check out our tips for saving your battery published in the Tips&Tricks section). Once again, not bad for this price, but technically who likes to charge their device a couple of times a day? It is sort of an improvement from the Leagoo M5 - there the battery was 2300 mAh but the device was smaller. 


This however is a real and big improvement - the LTE! Thankfully, the Leagoo M5 Plus comes with a newer processor that actually supports LTE connection. We are very glad to see that. The other networks which are supported are 2G and 3G The WIFI and the new generation Bluetooth work great.


The device comes in a plain but very esthetic black box. We can find here a full equipment inside. We are very impressed to see the following accessories:

  •     Product Manual and Start Guide,
  •     MicroUSB Cable and Wall Charger,
  •     USB OTG cable (This cable allows you to connect USB accessories),
  •     Headphones (There are good everyday earphones offering good quality sound),
  •     Screen Protectors
