One of the reasons why this device is affordable is because of the various component that makes up Leagoo T5 hardware. Component from Samsung, Sharp, Sony, and LG.

Leagoo T5 Screen Specs: 5.5 inches Sharp IPS Display, 1920×1080 resolution, 2.5D, Gorilla Glass 4, 401 PPI, 5-Point multi-touch

The body of the T5 is made from an aluminium alloy opting for a minimalist design without embellishments such as glossy metalwork or chamfered edges. The Leagoo T5 metal body has a matte black finish and a real fingerprint magnet. If you’re going to keep it in a case using the TPU case, this isn’t a problem, but without a case, it will look messy.

Leagoo T5 Colours Available: Champagne Gold (white front) & Black

At the bottom, you’ll find the headphone jack, a single speaker, and the MicroUSB port. The single speaker isn’t the best. For a smartphone speaker, you shouldn’t expect much.
You’ll find the power button and volume rocker on its right side.

Aside from the microSD card and Nano SIM card slot, the left side is bare. It can be a dual-SIM phone, but you can’t use a microSD card—the second slot functions as either a microSD card reader or a Nano SIM reader.

There’s a fingerprint sensor along the bottom, and a fingerprint sensor is positioned within the bezel beneath the display. There’s a noticeable delay between pressing your thumb to it and having the screen turn on.

Overall, the hardware here is very good for its price; it doesn’t feel like you’re using a cheap device.

The Leagoo T5 has some surprisingly high specs for its cameras, one of the reasons being that the dual-lens / OV rear camera was made by Sony. The rear has a 13MP and a 5MP lens — the 5MP lens is just for capturing clearer and better low-light photos. The f/2.0 aperture isn’t the best on a smartphone, but for this price range, it’s alright.

The front-facing camera is 13MP and it has a front-facing flash.  Indoor conditions, the photos look a little bit washed out. This is typical of cameras within the low-mid-range price bracket.

Looking at the camera mode setting. There are different camera modes you can go ahead and test out the different modes yourself and see what works for you or stay away from the extra modes and appreciate the 13MP camera in Normal mode.


Leagoo T5 Performance

CPU MediaTek 6750T (8-Cores)
GPU ARM Mali-T860
RAM: 4GB Samsung LPDDR4
Expandable Yes (2nd SIM slot up to 128GB)
Storage Samsung 64GB


For performance, the Leagoo T5 is Powered by a MediaTek processor low-mid range MediaTek 6750T that runs 8-cores at 1.5GHz and a graphics chip ( Mali-T860 GPU )which easily handles 2D games and plays most 3D games stutter and slow-down free.

You might have to turn down the graphics settings for the latest games, but overall it’s a decent gaming GPU for the price.

That 4GB of RAM certainly helps with multitasking, and 64GB of storage means a lot of space to save your media files (and you could always add more with a microSD card).

The T5 performed well while surfing the web using Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Googling.

Running the device through the Geekbench 4 test, it returned scores of 607 for Single-Core and 2490 for Multi-Core.

Leagoo T5 Battery Life

With a 3,000mAh battery, the Leagoo T5 is average in terms of battery life. It will get you through the day on normal use, and charging on the Leagoo T5 is fast.

Battery life on the T5 was not amazing on heavy use, like playing games. I tested the Leagoo T5 battery duration while playing online and offline games. For online gaming, for example, the PUGD mobile on low setting got 4 hours plus gameplay, while for offline gaming, the Hitman Sniper got me 6 hours.

I noticed the T5 was hot while playing the Hitman sniper. So I would recommend having a charger while gaming with this device.

One thing to bear in mind is that the T5 doesn’t have NFC. So, if you intend to use Android Pay, this is not on your phone.


Leagoo T5 Software

The OS on the Leagoo T5 is Android 7.0 Nougat which is customized. Essentially, it runs a custom launcher, has a tweaked notification shade, and has some extra features in the Settings menu.

The home screen/launcher looks much more like iOS than Android, with large colourful buttons (except for the Internet Explorer logo for the Browser app).

Another major thing Leagoo added to the Leagoo T5 is their app store. It’s called “App Store”, an identical copy of the Google Play Store. You could use it, but the Play Store is the best app store.
