LEAGOO T5c Design

The T5c is one of LEAGOO’s device with a premium build and quality material. Combining with an all-metal unibody design, the T5c is dedicated to the beauty of curve and radiance.

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW & UNBOXING

The screen of the T5c is built with the SONY 5.5″ 1920 x 1080 full high definition IPS display. In case you don’t know what this means, it implies that the T5c screen display is insane and can produce approximately 2 million pixels!

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW & UNBOXING

The LEAGOO T5c is only 8.5mm thick, 153.3mm in height and 76.1mm in width.

I feel light compared to my existing device. It weighed 173g when I checked its weight without the silicon case protector.

Moving on to the cameras, you find the dual rear camera at the top left corner. This 8MP + OV 2MP dual rear camera is made by SAMSUNG

When we do a camera test (scroll down to see), we will know the image production quality of the T5c camera since we are familiar with the capability of SAMSUNG branded cameras.

Also at the back is the sensor, flashlight and the LEAGOO logo right below.

LEAGOO T5c comes with a non-removable 3000mAh battery.

At the top of the front, starting from the right…

You will see the sensor, charging notify light support (Blue LED), flash, speakers for receiving calls and the 5MP selfie camera.

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW & UNBOXING

You will find the fingerprint scanner located on the lower part of the bezels. And I must say, the bezels at the top and bottom are quite large compared to the kinds of phones we are getting these days.

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW & UNBOXING

At the bottom, you will find the earphone port, USB port and the speaker grills.

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW & UNBOXING

The SIM tray will be found on the left side of the phone. The SIM tray can either take two nano-SIM cards or one nano-SIM + SD Card, it definitely won’t take two SIM + SD card… So the choice is all yours.

On the right side are the volume rocker and power button.

Turning the LEAGOO T5c on…

It loads the green LEAGOO logo as seen in the screenshot below and unboxing video embedded earlier.

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW & UNBOXING

this device comes with the LEAGOO OS 2.1 (based on Android 7.0 Nougat), an Intel Octa-core Spreadtrum SC9853I CPU, 32GB ROM with 3GB RAM.

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW & UNBOXING

The fingerprint sensor used in the LEAGOO T5c has an outstanding reliability while being very fast to respond at 0.1s. And it’s a non-press fingerprint ID unlike the Infinix Note 4.

The speaker — I wasn’t so impressed by the speaker of the T5c compared to the KIICAA smartphone (see my KIICAA POWER review).

Here is a comparison video versus the LEAGOO KIICAA POWER.

LEAGOO T5c Performace & Storage

To be honest, I was quite impressed by the Intel innovation Octa-core Spreadtrum SC9853I CPU, Mali-T820 GPU with 3GB of RAM… This means, enough multitasking and smooth running of apps, games and more.

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW & UNBOXING

When put on an actual test, I opened a couple of applications (7 to be precise) all at once to test its ability to properly run apps without restarting.

And… Boom!!! It opened it all without reloading.

Storage can be expanded to 32GB using an SD card if the ROM isn’t enough for you giving you more space to save files and apps.

T5c Geekbench score

Here is what this device measure when tested with the Geekbench score.

LEAGOO T5c Battery Test

The LEAGOO T5c comes with a non-removable 3000mAh battery capacity with 5V2A quick charge and according to LEAGOO… they claimed this device can go 8 hours of video play, 20 hours continuous calling, 36 hours normal use and 10 days standby.

t5c performance

I tested the strength of the battery playing the Modern combat 5 for about 13 minutes. It took about 5% of battery juice (Went from 46% to 41%) and was moderately warm.

At 41% the phone projected the battery would last for about 1 day 9 hours at moderate battery consumption.

ABOUT T5C BATTERY LIFE

I went ahead to run a Geekbench test, I noticed the device went from 41% to 28% (13% of battery use) in just 43 minutes. Under intensive battery usage, this device can only go between 5 to 6 hours before recharging. Not impressed!

With the 5V2A quick charging feature (use original charger), this device can be charged up to 100% from 0% in less than 2 hours.

This video was shot in a dark room with the front selfie camera + flash, the quality output is terrible and you should not even bother.

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW (FRONT CAMERA + FLASHLIGHT + FAST MOTION)

If you probably know about slow motion then you shouldn’t be too surprised about this type of video. Amazingly the LEAGOO T5c comes with a camera feature that allows you to take slow and fast motion videos.

Here is an example of a slow fast motion video taken under a well-illuminated room.

What do you think about the colour saturation?

LEAGOO T5c REVIEW (REAR CAMERA + ZOOM)

This is the sample of video with the dual rear cameras and zoom test shot during the day.

I think it has a strong zooming power but the colour distribution in the object is poor.

  • Storage and RAM
  • Affordable
  • Full High Definition (FHD) display

Cons (Disadvantages)

LEAGOO T5c Price and availability

Where to buy the LEAGOO T5c

In conclusion

If you are looking for a budget smartphones with dope camera and insane build, then consider buying the LEAGOO T5c Android smartphone.

I particularly love the build quality, camera (the ability to take videos in slow motion and fast forward), the display and of course its affordability. This is one phone that was built using components from four top brands — Processor from Intel Innovation, Display from SHARP, Battery from LG, Camera from SAMSUNG… Please, what more do you expect?
