Reviews for the Leagoo M8

Leagoo M8 Smartphone Design, Antutu, Camera, Battery Hands-on Review

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.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


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).
