Top 5 reasons to buy LEAGOO Elite 1

  • Display : The LEAGOO Elite 1 features a 5-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD JDI LTPS IPS display which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It has a contrast ratio of 1000 : 1 and a pixel density of 441 ppi. We specially like the size of the display here. It is compact which is essential for one-handed usage.
  • Performance : The smartphone is powered by a 1.3 GHz octa-core MediaTek MTK6753 64-bit processor along with Mali-T720 GPU. There is more than enough power to blaze past the normal usage, play high graphics intensive games, click pictures and videos, watch high quality content and more, without dropping a sweat. Also, the 3GB RAM makes it a stutter free experience. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, which gives almost stock experience and makes it more stable than a custom ROM.
  • Camera : The Elite 1 comes with a 13 megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash, 5P lens, f/2.0 aperture and Sony sensor. On the front, there is a 8 megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.4 aperture and 77-degree wide-angle lens for selfies and video calling. This is great, however, both the shooters are interpolated to 16 and 13 megapixel respectively, which even makes it even better.
  • Build Quality & Fingerprint Sensor : The LEAGOO Elite 1 has an aluminium magnesium alloy chassis which runs around the body and makes the device sturdy. The back also has a Corning Gorilla Glass coating. It has a Fingerprint scanner integrated on the home button used for unlocking and other purposes.

    From my viewpoint, the highlights of the Leagoo Elite 1 is the FHD display, 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM, 13MP front camera + 16MP back camera, but it also has its short points: 5.0-inch display is a little small, the Android 5.1 and 2400mAh battery. For this price or lower, the new released vkworld T1 Plus with 6.0-inch display, 4300mAh battery is a good option, and it is going to be pre-sale soon, you can view more about it then.
