The Chinese company LEAGOO, known for its smartphones with a good price/performance ratio, introduced another new medium-level product – Leagoo T5c, based on the top processor from Spreadtrum – SC9853I, which is an eight-core 64-bit processor with Intel Airmont architecture. Developers from the company LEAGOO believe that the correct modernization of technical parameters allows you to keep interest in the phones for another couple of seasons.
The design of the Leagoo T5c does not stand out against the background of competitors. The smartphone is almost entirely made of metal. Of plastic – only inserts under the antenna at the top and bottom. They are quite large and differ in color from the main plate. The coating is matte, so fingerprints are almost invisible. The Leagoo T5c is assembled quite qualitatively for its price.
The front part is covered with curved glass, most of it is allocated to the screen, and the side frames are minimal, even visually noticeable, that they are much smaller than the predecessor. The upper frame contains a set of sensors, a front camera, a flash, and a conversational speaker. Below the screen is the physical “Home” key. As usual, the power button and the volume rocker are on the right side, the hybrid tray is on the left.
At the lower end of the Leagoo T5c, the manufacturer delivered a basic set of interfaces – micro USB and a 3.5 mm headphone port. Immediately there is the main speaker and microphone. The upper end is empty. On the back side, attention is attracted by a double camera, next to which is an additional microphone and LED flash. Complements the picture of the company’s logo.
In terms of size, Leagoo T5c corresponds to 5.5-inch analogs. Dimensions of the smartphone are 153 x 76 x 8.5 mm, the weight of the device is 168 g. The phone is rather thin, not heavy, it fits in your hand well, allowing you to enjoy the usage process. Color solutions are not many: black and gold (in the first case, the black front, in the second – white).
The Leagoo T5c display has standard characteristics, although the picture quality is very high. Installed 5.5-inch matrix produced by Sharp. The screen resolution is 1920×1080 pixels, which provides 401 dots per inch – the density of pixels is high, the graininess is invisible even with close inspection. The screen is covered with a protective glass produced by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Good scratch resistance and a decent oleophobic coating – all this on the screen Leagoo T5c.
The display shows saturated real colors, the temperature can be adjusted independently by resorting to the MiraVision option. Good viewing angles and a decent amount of brightness are attached. The Leagoo T5c screen supports up to ten simultaneous touches, OGS technology is applied, which eliminates the interlayer of air between the matrix and the touch, providing high quality and images and better sensitivity.
Leagoo T5c: Performance
The performance of the Leagoo T5c is based on the Spreadtrum SoC SC9853i processor. The chipset includes eight CPU-cores with a clock speed of 1.8 GHz. According to the developer, the hardware platform SC9853i is more powerful than the competitor MediaTek MT6750 by 39% on the total indicators, although, with respect to single-core and multi-core performance, the superiority was 25% and 36%, respectively. This result was also achieved thanks to the thinner 14-nanometer process technology of the new SoC, while the MediaTek MT6750 is manufactured using the old 28-nanometer technology standards. With most popular games, he does well, with which he helps the graphics processor Mali-T820 MP2 and 3 gigabytes of RAM.
The manufacturer offers 32 GB of permanent memory, which can be increased with the help of microSD up to a maximum of 128 GB. The smartphone is running an operating system Android 7.0.
Leagoo T5c: Interfaces
Leagoo T5c works in 2G, 3G and 4G networks, supports smartphone all popular frequencies. From the wireless interfaces, we have the most necessary – Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The presence of NFC would seriously lift the smartphone in the eyes of users. Leagoo T5c, as already noted, is equipped with a fingerprint scanner, which, as the manufacturer promises, works in 0.1 seconds. Not sure about the speed to milliseconds, but it works really fast and fairly accurately.
Standard navigation systems – GPS and GLONASS. Even with cheap Chinese smartphones, there are no problems with working with satellites. The sound quality of the Leagoo T5c is simply not bad. It is loud enough, but there is not enough depth or clarity.
Leagoo T5c received a rear dual camera on Samsung + OV sensors (13 + 2 MP) and a 5-megapixel front camera.
The main camera T5c is represented by two sensors. The main one is Samsung’s 13-megapixel sensor with extra-wide F2.2. Additional – 2-megapixel module from OmniVision. The camera is quite good, it can even more or less normally blur the background.
The front camera is represented by a single 5-megapixel sensor with a wide angle of 77.9°. But there is a flash. The quality of the images is acceptable as for the “front-end” of an inexpensive smartphone.
For an autonomous operation of the phone is responsible for a 3000 mAh battery. Leagoo T5c supports fast charging technology 5V/2A. 100% smartphone can be charged in about an hour and a half. Unfortunately, Leagoo T5c is equipped with a micro USB-connector.
The phone has a working time of 10 hours, in normal mode – 36 hours, in standby mode – 10 days.
Today you can pre-order a new smartphone Leagoo T5c in the store Gearbest, its cost is $ 129.99.
