• The phone at Leagoo: leagoo.com/en/…tml

• Long list of phones with the same main camera sensor - Sony Exmor RS (not bad at all, especially for the money): kimovil.com/en/…-rs

• Metal body is a bonus

• No notification LED is a minor negative

• Gets a similar Antutu benchmark score to my Huawei P8, which isn't too shabby for a £100 phone

I take it there is no way I could get this before the weekend?

U need to find a Spell for it
Seems to have Band-20 and a headphone jack. No NFC though, and the battery seems to leave a bit to be desired (which is a bigger problem if you're planning on making use of its good RAM/storage by playing/watching loads of stuff). Still, a lot of phone for the price.

Here is a pretty thorough (and very recent) review: androidheadlines.com/201…tml

Seems like an interesting buy. I'm very tempted. Its not gonna give you the feeling that you've got something similar to a flagship phone, but for the money it definitely looks (specs wise) better than the budget UK models.

I've no idea what sort of company Leagoo are in terms of updates, security , trojans etc. Anyone know? Having it on Android 7 when a lot of manufacturers are still using 6 for their lower end phones is a pretty good sign I think.

nothing. Phablet was just a term for phone\tablet crossover devices used a few years back when phones usually had smaller screens.
is it 4G ?
This has got to be the cheapest 4+64Gb phone we've ever come across?

This should perform better than a sub £300 tablet with these specs shouldn't it? How long it will last before going faulty is anyone's guess tho

Any good? Never herd of leagoo before looks nice
Just picked up a new champagne one on ebay for 90 from a private seller, looks like a decent phone for the price, anything has gotta be better than my ancient S2
Generally with these brands you will find they suffer from poor battery, screen burn, poor quality control, and numerous software glitches and poor optimization, I've had 2 phones similar, a doogee and a elephone, and I won't do it again lol.

Pointless warning people on here, they'll buy tat like this regardless.
Hardly call it tat, you just have to live with it's limits, if you want a top end phone you'll pay at least double this for the same spec, not everyone wants to spend 400+ on a handset/contract

Xiaomi - shockingly good quality, just got mine today Miui OTA updates, Band 20 - will never buy rip off UK handsets, Redmi Note 4 build quality as good as anything you can bring to the table, period. That's coming from a HTC One M8 user of 3 yrs.

I want one with band 20 I think
Never heard of them either. But amazing specs for the money. If you are looking for a sub 100 phone I would say buy it. The price will no doubt go up after the promo.

Agree - however xiaomi is probably an exception (likely the one one)
No thank you was going to buy from but read the reviews on trustpilot people getting empty boxes 📦 not good people never getting the items

Wholly agree. It's scandalous what Samsung and Apple charge in comparison. Easily double.

The Lenovo P2 is a UK sourced Phone, via the Network 3 Network ...

So, what makes you believe that the Lenovo P2 doesn't have Band 20 on it then?, lol.

It's the Lenovo P2 Phone I'm using to type this message to you as we speak. :-)

So I know it definitely has Band 20 within it ...
OMG this phone has two lenses on it, so I am assuming this will be as good as iPhone 7s, which has the same camera set up, with two of them.
I'm ordering it now, complete with and utter bargain, I can buy 7 of these for price of one Apple!
The other specs like the screen and fingerprint reader are the same too!
Im basically getting the the new iPhone for a steel

I think he/she meant the Chinese-sourced P2, which is readily available now but doesn't support B20.

The UK one from 3 sold out long ago, didn't it?

Apparently, the Chinese rom can be changed to the Global one to possibly(?) support B20, if you're good at this sort of thing & don't mind the risk: forum.xda-developers.com/len…804

Used to have Leagoo phones back in the day, and this is my opinion :

There are no OTA updates. In a year of using my phone, 0 updates. Checked monthly and no luck.
Considering that, your security patch is most likely a month-two older from the date you bought the phone.
Depends on the firmware.
Mine came with some bloatware apps so I flashed TWRP back in the day to install some app removers that can use root access to delete system apps.
Android 7 on low budget phones is what I like to call a gimmick.
The battery from what I can remember is ok but it can get drained really goddamn fast if you use a lot of youtube.

It's worth to flash a Custom ROM if you can find any, preferably a Resurrection Remix if you're used to it, as they got weekly/monthly updates and security patches.

I have made a mistake going with Leagoo in the past, and I'll do it never again.

Xiaomi has a place in my heart, alongside Umi and LeEco.
Currently using my Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (old, but prices are dropping and you can get it for cheap) and it's working out great.
They only thing I have with them right now is that they don't have an SD Card slot, but you get used to it.

Sadly it isn't as simple as that - depends on camera brand/specs and software. Not saying this applies to this phone , but I have seen reviews of dual camera phones where a central in focus circle can be clearly seen , with the background out of focus . I don't think that is 'bokeh' 🙄 . Dual camera strikes me as pretty much a gimmick ,along with most of the ' bezel-less ' designs - the side bezels are still there and the top bezel just gets added to the bottom ( mi mix excepted ).
Having said that ,I like the current cut of Leagoo's jib , the t10 looks nice too - it just shows how good budget to mid-range phones are becoming - flagship phones are undeniably nice , but a lot of the features which justify the price ( apart from blatant profiteering )aren't really required by the ' average ' user

Long, long ago in a land not far from here it would have been...

Is it a tablet? Is it a phone? No, it’s the Samsung Galaxy Note! With its 5.3in screen, the Note can be seen as either a very small tablet or a very large phone, depending on your perspective. However, given its SIM and 3G capabilities, we’re going to have to go with the latter on this one. And the Galaxy Note – or GT-N7000 in model number parlance – isn’t just any ‘phone’ (phablet, tabfone, whatever).

trustedreviews.com/rev…ote

I called mine a hyphota (HYbrid PHOne TAblet). After that I had a Sony Z Ultra. Loved big screens before anyone else realised they were the way - I remember my boss taking the p out of my Z Ultra! Latest large screen is a Doogee Y Max! : )
