Leagoo M7 is one of such low priced devices every Nigerian should consider laying their hands on.
It features an eye-catching premium design, cool display, massive storage and beautiful colors at a very affordable price.
In fact, it is regarded as one of the cheap Android phones in Nigeria.
Unfortunately, most people would rather go with the more familiar Tecno phones, Nokia phones or even Xiaomi phones rather than with a less familiar brand like Leagoo. We miss a lot really when we stick with old brands and don’t try out new ones.
Leagoo makes really cool smartphones like the Leagoo M7 which I’ll be reviewing here. But we miss them out because we’re often scared of trying new things.
Read through this review with an unbiased mind and see if the company doesn’t offer much to compete with more popular brands at a more affordable price.

Massive Display for Optimum Experience
The 5-inch display has been accepted over the years by most smartphone enthusiasts as the most comfortable display.
Lately, however, most smartphone manufacturers are opting for bigger 6-inch display as it provides enough real estate for better user experience.
This smartphone, unfortunately, did not come with a massive 6-inch display (you probably will not find any smartphone sporting such a large display at such a low price). Interestingly, however, it comes with an average 5.5-inch display, which bothers on comfortability and usability.
The screen also sports a 1280×720 resolution with high definition color blend for better picture and video quality.
Leagoo M7 Features Premium Designs
The phone is designed with the same premium looks of the popular iPhone X. It comes with slightly curved edges for perfect palm grips and comes with an oval-shaped home button like the Infinix Note 4.
M7’s premium looks are unlike any other found in a smartphone within its price range. It’s available in three different colors: champagne gold, obsidian black, and streamer red.
The dual-SIM smartphone also features a fingerprint technology for improved security, making it stand out from other smartphones in its price category. The body is plastic.
Hardware and Software
The Leagoo M7 comes with a massive 16GB internal memory which, I believe, is quite fair as most competitor phones come with half of that. It also features 1GB RAM; this combined with the MediaTek processor gives you a phone with average performance and average multitasking ability.
M7 comes with the Android v7 Nougat and supports features such as split screen, screen pin, sleek notification management and beautiful user interface.
An Impressive Dual Camera System
It’s rather surprising to find the dual camera system, usually found in most high-end smartphones, on a low priced phone like the Leagoo M7. The device comes with a dual 8MP and 5MP rear camera, which I believe is a good deal for the price and will give good picture quality.
It also sports a 5MP front camera for selfies like most other smartphones in its price range.
Average Battery Life
The Leagoo is packed with a 3000mAh Li-ion battery. With a fully charged battery, you’ll be able to use your phone for up to 12 hours. That’s when you use it for continuous gaming or browsing with the 3G network; otherwise, it’ll last longer.
Overall, the Leagoo M7 is an impressive device available at an affordable price. It’s unfortunate that most of us here in Nigeria, are unaware of the high-quality devices made by Leagoo at affordable prices.
If you’re looking for a premium looking smartphone with good battery life and good display, don’t be afraid to go with this device. It’s more than fair for the price.
