LEAGOO Elite 1


LEAGOO isn’t a particularly well-known brand, but they do make some decent hardware. One of which is the “budget flagship” Elite 1. The Elite 1 sports some respectable hardware specifications. First up, it’s got a 5-inch full-HD IPS display which ramps the pixel density up to a massive 441ppi tucked under toughened Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

At its heart is a MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. Encasing the internals is a premium metal frame sandwiched between glass panels. The fit could be a little better, but for this price, we don’t have much to complain.

The Elite 1 has another trick up its sleeve and that’s a 16MP f/2.0 primary camera on the back. It has a Sony sensor with a dual-LED flash to help out in low light. On the front, it has a massive 13-megapixel selfie shooter also with a flash.
