77.5% Leagoo M5 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Hottie!Leagoo's M5 is an affordable entry-level smartphone with one great feature - according to the manufacturer, the screen is fracture and breakage resistant should it be dropped. To achieve this, the manufacturer has installed a solid metal frame and an especially hardened glass front. However, this resistance seems to be at the expense of heat dissipation since the M5 presents its hot side in the test.
Leagoo M5 Review – The First Shockproof Pure Metal Phone Under $90!
Source: Gear Open English
Obviously, we are dealing with a budget-friendly smartphone with its advantages and disadvantages; well everything has pros and cons. As you can see above, the Leagoo M5 is an entry-level device that can be easily put into the category of rugged devices. But unlike many other similar handsets such as the Leagoo T1, it comes with a removable back cover as well as removable battery. So this phone can be a rival to the Uhans A101 rather than other unibody rugged handsets.

Leagoo M8 Smartphone Design, Antutu, Camera, Battery Hands-on Review
Source: Igeekphone English
In the few days that I played with Leagoo M8 I saw it can do better phablet budget. Like any entry-level phone also has his sins, but you should expect from them when you decide to purchase. I do not remember seeing another Chinese manufacturer also a phablet with similar features and price, so we could say that Leagoo M8 is a pioneer in this niche. A user less demanding, low budget, but wants a big screen can always take into account this phone. For social networking, voice calls, browsing and games Looser is a perfect device.
