Reviews for the Leagoo M5

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!

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 is a brand created by the Chinese company Shenzhen OTEDA Technology Co. Ltd in 2014. The market share is just as low as the number of test reports in the media. Before 2016, there are hardly any tests. The achieved ratings are slightly below average (as of 2016).

72.25%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
