Leagoo Z5


Leagoo Z5 – A Simple Path to Change

Leagoo Z5 comes with the tagline ‘A Simple Path To Change’ and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, with Leagoo 2.0 OS on top. It flaunts a standard 5-inch display sporting a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. It is powered by a MediaTek MT6580M quad-core chipset clocking 1.3GHz aided by 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage with storage expansion support up to 128GB. Leagoo Z5 features a 5MP rear camera with dual LED flash which is kind of a disappointment as most of the affordable smartphones these days feature at least a 13MP shooter. On the front it has a 2MP camera. It comes with dual sim connectivity including other options like 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1. It is fueled by a 2300mAh battery which the brand claims provide this phone a standby time of 360 hours, usage time of up to 12 hours and video playback time of up to 8 hours.

Real Life Benchmark & Tests
In Antutu Benchmark 6.1.4 Leagoo Z5 smartphone achieves a good score, over  23.000 points. In Antutu Video Tester 3.0 Leagoo Z5 scores 500 points, a fair score in this test ranking. It played smoothly almost all video file types; this firmware version fully supports 11 video & audio format files, it partially supports 7 video & audio format files and doesn’t manage to play 12 files.

Wifi Internet speed tested gets also pretty good values: about 25 Mbps in download and the upload speed was also over 17 Mbps. The router used in this test is Xiaomi Mi WiFi Router, mounted in another room.

The Leagoo OS 2.0 on the Z5 is very smooth and very well customized operating system. Transitions, animations, apps switching and general OS fluidity is just great, I really like it a lot. During our tests, we experienced zero force closes, hangups or stability issues. Google Play and gapps are working without issue. Google Play Services updated no problem. 3rd party apps downloaded and updated without issues. The Leagoo Z5 is a great budget phone, with an amazing affordable price.
