It’s no secret that today the smartphone market is mostly dominated by devices with design either like iPhone X, or full-screen phones with thin bezels like Galaxy S8 / S9, or Xiaomi Mi Mix copies. For the last time especially popular iPhone X copies, and Leagoo also decided to join this trend.
Today we have full review Leagoo S9. The smartphone is already on sale with discount price $129.99. Hurry up, because sale price will be until May 20.
Leagoo S9: Design
New smartphone offers a thin bezels, full screen with 19:9 aspect ratio, a screen resolution of 1512×720 pixels. The display occupies up to 90% of the front panel area.
Despite the diagonal screen of 5.85 inches, the gadget size does not exceed the dimensions of regular 5.5-inch phone with bezels and 16:9 aspect ratio. If you want an inexpensive device with design like iPhone X, interesting features and price, then you are on the right page, especially now, when there is a flash sale of Leagoo S9.
The design of Xiaomi Mi Mix is not so popular, because it is not very convenient to use. Yes, there are no bezels on three sides (right/left/top), and it looks very interesting, but it also means that front camera is placed at the bottom. When you want to make selfie photo, you should turns out the phone, and it is very uncomfortable.
If we talk about design of the Galaxy S8 / S9, then it has no flaws, but Leagoo wanted to achieve the bigger screen to body ratio, so it follows iPhone X design.
New smartphone has very similar design with the same vertical dual camera, although Leagoo S9 also has a fingerprint reader on the back cover. The back panel is made of strong polycarbonate. It doesn’t differ from glass. The side frame is completely metal.
The front side of Leagoo S9 has a tempered 2.5D glass. It smoothly flows into the frame without any protrusions or gaps.
There are three color options: glossy black, golden and glossy blue.
Leagoo S9: Features
Despite the fact that it is budget phone, it has some very interesting features:
1. Leagoo S9 is the world’s first smartphone with dual main camera and special algorithm, which helps to make ultra-clear pictures with 65MP resolution.
2. Leagoo S9 looks the same as iPhone X, but it costs 7 times cheaper than flagship Apple phone. Neither 2, 3, 4 times, but as much as seven times!
Leagoo S9: Display
Leagoo S9 has not the largest, but not the smallst screen with diagonal of 5.85 inches and resolution of 1512×720 pixels. It has excellent brightness of 450 nit, excellent color rendering (85% of NTSC), 19: 9 aspect ratio and large viewing angles.
Thanks to good battery capacity of 3300 mAh the screen will be able to please every user as long as possible.
Leagoo S9: Camera
We have already noted that you can take photos with resolution of 65 MP – Ultra HD Shot. Leagoo S9 uses 13MP camera sensor from Sony and additional sensor with 2MP resolution. Using a special software, the smartphone combines the images from two sensors and make 65MP images.
Also the photos can be zoomed up to 23 times, while the loss in quality will be minimal! You can watch it in video below.
The front camera is located at the top of display, so you don’t need to turn over when you want to make selfie.
Leagoo S9: Face Unlock
