Leagoo Lead 5 Malaysia Price, Features, and Specs

Leagoo Lead 5 Review – Inexpensive yet Exquisite

With the abundance of Chinese phone manufacturers available in the Malaysian smartphone market such as Xiaomi, Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, and Leagoo, it's now easier for locals to get a reliable budget device. Leagoo is one of the newest Chinese brands in the market, debuting in May 2014 with the Leagoo Lead 1 smartphone. One of the brand’s popular models is the Lead 5, a reasonably-priced midrange Android smartphone. Being a budget-friendly price tag, the Lead 5 comes with the basic essentials expected in a smartphone.

Design and Construction

The Leagoo Lead 5 is surprisingly stylish for an entry-level smartphone. Despite having a plastic body, the Lead 5 has an aluminium frame that gives it a sturdy feel; at the same time making the device look better than most smartphones at its price point. The top and bottom of the phone is rounded while the back is slightly curved to provide users with a better grip, which is a plus point because plastic can be quite slippery to hold. Atop the phone is a microUSB slot and a 3.5mm audio jack next to it. The front of the phone is dominated by a 5-inch screen with three capacitive buttons beneath it and the top bezel holds the selfie camera and a series of sensors.


The Leagoo Lead 5 features a 5.0-inch IPS display panel with 854x480p resolution. Although the colours and image quality may be lacking as compared to the 1080p screen that we are so familiar with, it is still sufficient for everyday use for regular tasks. Hence, you can still enjoy playing mobile games and watch videos on the device. Nevertheless, the screen still has decent viewing angles and is bright enough to remain visible under sunlight.


As an entry-level smartphone, the Leagoo Lead 5 has a solid combination of specs that makes it capable of handling everyday tasks decently. The phone is equipped with an MTK6582 quad-core processor that is supported by 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 32GB. The phone does seem to struggle slightly and requires more time when handling more demanding apps and software, but it remains responsive for normal functions.

HotKnot Function

One of the standout features of the Lead 5 is HotKnot. HotKnot is a near-field communication technology developed by MTK which enables users to transmit data via touch interaction. All you need to do is to place the screen on the screen on another device, be it another phone or a computer to share information between devices.

Smart Wake Gesture Function

Although the Lead 5 is marketed as an entry-level device, it is not short of innovative technologies. The phone also supports the Smart Wake feature which enables users to draw different gestures to open related apps. For example, just draw a ‘C’ shape on the screen to activate the camera or ‘S’ to enter the Settings menu.
