Leagoo P1: Ultra-Budget Smartphone

Smartphone Leagoo P1 can be described shortly as one of the most inexpensive smartphones, the price of which is only 39.99 dollars. It’s clear that for this money, it is difficult to demand anything top-ranked. But appreciably, the manufacturers have managed to feed the customers with some fresh features.

In addition to more than affordable price list, Leagoo P1 can boast a battery capacity of 4000 mAh, which is often found in the ultra-budget and highly priced categories only. Notwithstanding, the device has got a fairly compact size and a thin body.

Moreover, Leagoo engineers even managed to shove a dual main camera with a resolution of 8.0 Mp + 0.3 Mp into the smartphone. Of course, the only advantage of such a configuration is an imitation of the popular optical effect “bokeh” that lets the background blur on portrait shots.

At the bottom of the small 5-inch display Leagoo P1, there are touch buttons, which allows you to use the available surface to the maximum. Otherwise, the bottom of the screen would be “consumed” with various controllers of the operating system.

Android 7.0 Nougat is installed on the smartphone with a light firmware Leagoo OS 3.0 Lite. When developing the shell, two things are given more importance. Firstly, they’ve managed to increase the speed of work on a very slow hardware. Secondly, they very successfully have improved its autonomy.

The smartphone is made on the basis of MediaTek MT6580, one of the most popular budget-oriented “Chinese” mobile processor. The latter includes four 32-bit cores ARM Cortex-A7 with a frequency of 1.3 GHz and a GPU Mali400 MP2.

The amount of RAM is only 1 Gb, the built-in “flash drive” is 8 Gb. Providing a slot for MicroSD (unfortunately, a hybrid), P1 allows its owner to add more memory than that’s included. The maximum capacity of the additional drive is 32 Gb.

Cellular communication support for Leagoo P1 is limited to the standards of 2G GSM and 3G UMTS, with 4G LTE. The new model of Leagoo is still unfamiliar to the audience due to the outdated hardware platform. But you can put two SIM-cards, one of which can be in a format of nano-SIM, and the second one could be a micro-SIM.
