Leagoo Elite1 7

This year we have seen many brands have emerged Chinese with new terminals each more capable and more careful design day. This is a trend that is becoming very difficult to choose new smartphone, especially considering the prices at which we see these types of phones.

Elite Leagoo 1 is a clear example of this is that it is a terminal with very interesting specifications. With 3 GB of RAM , fingerprint or a front camera 8MP with autofocus and even a design with metal front and rear glass body and this smartphone suggests ways. <-! More-- >

An upper-middle range with personality

Elite 1 is a mobile terminal in a way reminiscent marking design iPhone 4 / 4s, with front and rear glass and the central body part cash. It is a smartphone with FullHD screen of 5 inches and the truth is that it has very compact dimensions.

As you can see in the Specifications is a smartphone pretty bright , in fact, has a very affordable price for what offers and once you touch and see I do not speak of a Chinese plastic device you realize that it is a smartphone with a pretty good finish.

If we have to put a paste design let’s spin rather thin, commenting on the typical black frame between the frame of the terminal itself and the edge of the screen. In addition, we added the Home / fingerprint that is perhaps too low

button. Having seen the specifications and read the section on battery has surprised the physical thickness thereof, as perhaps expected a thickness slightly less for that capacity.

Display high quality although the smartphone requests more

The design of the smartphone is impeccable and the “hole” for the screen seems to demand a screen between 5.2 and 5.5 inches. However since Leagoo they have made use of black frames of about two millimeters on the sides and more at the top and bottom margins.

It is something that is not surprising because there are many models that make use of it, which annoys me personally is that the screen displays some web images image to the physical setting of the terminal and other a tiny black frame when the reality is not so.

Speaking of image quality of the display can only comment that it is a large panel Q with LTPS technology. Through it seems that places the screen in the same glass surface Touch Gorilla Glass 3 .

This screen provides very wide viewing angles without color distortion and an adjustable brightness that is able to offer levels to be used in bright sunshine without problems. In our measurements the display emits about 400 lux at maximum brightness, moving up to big brand.

The screen resolution is FullHD, read 1,920 x 1,080 px, and with a size of diagonal of 5 inches gives a pixel density of 441ppp.

To this we must add that as we have seen on other smartphones in Display settings have a section that called Miravision and provides calibration options, color temperature and adjust the display to suit the user.

Performance up to 615 Snapdragon

Elite 1 mounts SoC Mediatek MTK6753 so many smartphones Chinese have decided to ride this latest wave. It is a very well balanced SoC, with low fuel consumption and outstanding performance.

It is not the fastest on the market, in fact it is far behind the MTK6752, but performs well even playing demanding 3D titles but whether that will be the main use of mobile recommend other alternatives, of course.

3 GB of RAM help significantly in the multitasking section and although it is not something a typical use of the terminal shows through, yes thank users more demanding mobile. One example is that heavy applications such as games are not closed if we stop for a second to keep an eye on WhatsApp or Facebook, among others

The performance of the smartphone is expected of this SoC, neither better nor worse. A smartphone that meets the needs of any user and also thanks to the Mali T720 GPU MP3 , is able to provide a proper experience in demanding games.

OS 1.1 and Leagoo little success in customizing

Welcome to the world of Chinese terminals and their eagerness to customize software smartphone. Much to our regret we must inform you that Leagoo Elite 1 is another case of that trend.

Topics Leagoo

gala ago Leagoo OS 1.1 that arrives with a launcher type iPhone, ie, without application drawer.

It also offers some advanced features such as support for gestures on the screen to open applications from status display off or the ability to unlock the phone via fingerprint.

With this launcher have a screen to the left of all that gives us direct access to the media player and then we all desktops showing our applications.

Personally I prefer an experience as close to AOSP Android, while good, is not something that does not believe much of a problem since you can install another launcher and select settings from which one you want to use.

Beyond the support we launcher fingerprint reader, installed at the Home button, and it works once we display on.

Leagoo Footprints The capacitive fingerprint reader works quite well

capacitive fingerprint reader , by this we mean that we have nothing else to put the finger on him to be recognized. Very similar in operation to that of Galaxy S6 or iPhone 6. It is the type of Huawei Mate 7 / Honor 7 that if you put your finger terminal is unlocked to work first have to press the home button or switch.

One of the things I liked least is that personalization reaches the Android settings menu and can have a reduced version, or all sections.

Leagoo SOFT2 The section is also customized settings Leagoo OS

I think for someone who is used to such solutions Android just created initial confusion and not as initial over time in which we have been using.

We thought it curious the possibility of activating a hidden mode / secure on the applications you choose will ask for a passcode, thus the list of calls and messages will be hidden from view curious.

So also the physical button Additional we have on the right side of the smartphone with round shape and that will let you launch any application, configurable action by User.

Photos to note if you put your hand

Leagoo Elite1 6

13 rear Mpx / 8Mpx front

This terminal also uses a custom camera with advanced features like mode HDR or beauty (somewhat exaggerated) and even flash mode selfies.

We do not have manual controls natively nor seems clear that the resolution is the front or rear camera. In the software lets us choose up to 13 Mpx in the front and up to 16 Megapixel at the back, but beware, these resolutions are achieved by interpolation beyond the 8MP and 13 Mpx that are offered two separate sensors.

Leagoo Elite1 11

As a note to the manufacturer, it does not seem just another choice for confuse the user and seen the results of those not recommend spending Megapixel 8 and 13 respectively.

Beyond will discuss first the results we’ve seen from the front camera is that it has come to our attention the trend installing a LED Flash dedicated on the front to be used as flash, companies like Apple or use all Huawei mobile screen to get that effect.

sensor 8MP has seemed correct, neither good nor bad. It is true that this is a autofocus module will allow us to achieve a greater degree of bokeh and a sharper focus on selfies. It is also true that flash support but ultimately is little more than an incidental feature. The front camera, as we say, well but we found the problem of beauty fed exaggerated way, even in the lowest values ​​or HDR mode perhaps somewhat overexposed.

The camera back boasts a backlit sensor Sony IMX214 13 Megapixel along with optics f / 2.0 makes a good duet for images of distant light situations than optimal.

Here we have to put a but to capture HDR, which from afar we see lack certain calibration function as only we see a significantly clearer picture and not an image that wins in dynamic range.

The quality of pictures is good at full sunlight and if we go to indoor and night behaves quite well and if we help with the dual LED flash accompanying Leagoo Elite 1.

Another point we have to consider is the state of it. Being so esquinada , we have to be careful when capturing images with it but also if you want to portray your own finger.

One last note is that both allow camera recording FullHD and no ability to record video of higher resolution or not more fps to 30, ie, no slow motion.

Autonomy, the fairest point terminal

Obviously nothing read the specifications and we grabbed an idea of ​​the mobile would have a hard time in the autonomous section. These 2400 mAh seem insufficient and when it seems that are standardizing the 3,000 mAh.

 Leagoo Elite1 12

In fact with these 7.5 mm thick announces the manufacturer, are actually measured 7.9 mm caliper, seem physically accommodate more battery power. And to have a unibody format without access to it, we find a terminal that will justito a day.

With this smartphone gives us fear leaving home in the morning without an external battery case. As we found in our tests, Leagoo Elite 1 can reach the whole day from morning to night, but getting a load demands.

Leagoo Bat2

In the PCMark battery test with screen brightness calibration has given us a result that suggests that this is a mobile with a good range.

Enough for a day of normal use navigation, messaging and push mail, some play and some music if you’re not one to use it conscientiously.

It is also true that we have detected that the terminal has a higher than normal consumption at rest, it seems that does not fit properly deep sleep mode. This is surely guilty of autonomy that day just because the screen when using it on if it is able to stand for several hours as shown PCMark.

Perhaps it is more significant if we use the method Unlocking the fingerprint reader, which does not play in your favor and hope that Leagoo be able to solve in future software updates.

Elite 1, a “love and I can not” at a great price

No doubt the great strength of this phone is its price, is really very competitive for what it offers, to have 3 GB of RAM , a decent camera and a design and construction quality.

Now depends on the type of user you are and what you look to see if this terminal with their buts, can cuadrarte. In my experience personal use, once I got rid of the original launcher and used Google Now Launcher smartphone you have given great service fitting into what we might call the new mid-range design and high quality materials .
