Design and Display

The Leagoo S8 is an attractive premium looking smartphone thanks to the 18:9 aspect ratio. For a smartphone in the budget category the smartphone has a quality build with metallic bodywork that profers a kind of high-end feel on the smartphone. Also, there’s the bezel-less display and the absence of offscreen capacitive touch buttons to further reduce the bezels to get more screen real estate.

The view on the Leagoo S8 is quite nice apart from the fact that it is a low resolution display. The screen size is slightly bigger than your average screen at 5.7-inch and that’s partly due to the aspect ratio. With a 1440 X 720 resolution and a pixel density of 282 ppi this is not at all bad for a cheap alternative.


Battery and Camera

In that vein, the Leagoo S8 on an average should last about a day on a full charge with its 3, 500mAh Li-Po battery. Like most recent smartphones out there, the advent of non removable battery is now a trend and the same is featured here.

For taking pictures not much can be expected of a budget smartphone but actually the Leagoo S8 features some nice cameras. The smartphone features an exciting quad camera with a dual 13MP + 2MP rear camera and a 13MP + 2MP front camera. Which to be honest is not a common thing in this price category..
