The packaging of Leagoo Alfa 1 contains following things:
- Cell Phone x1
- Battery x1
- Power Adapter x1
- USB Cable x1
- OTG Cable x1
- Earphones x1
- English Manual x1
The Leagoo Alfa 1 titanium body with three different color alternatives is the main design attraction of this smartphone. The dimensions are 6.14 x 3.01 x 0.31 inches. Leagoo Alfa 1 is 7.9mm thick and weighs 112gams.
The front side of the phone has 5.5 inch HD display that covers most of the front side. The rectangular shape of this smartphone has cleaned all sides with a smooth curve with some grippy parts. The speakers are placed next to the front camera to fill the upper portion of the Leagoo Alfa 1 without disturbing the flatness of the screen.
The backside of the Leagoo Alfa 1 is covered with some dotted classic colors. A rectangular camera beside the flash and vertical Alfa Leagoo logo is dominating the upper back by leaving the remaining space for the speakers.
The Alfa 1 body is entirely covered with aluminum and with the power buttons on the right side that oppose the volume buttons on the left side.The Headphone and OTG ports are located on the upper part by leaving the opposite side for the tiny microphone.
The Leagoo Alfa 1 screen provides excellent vision even in the presence of extreme sunlight. With 267 PPI, 1280 x 720 pixels have a great role in providing life-like outputs through the display. The 720p resolution was a standard in recent times, and with technology advancing, this resolution falls behind in the race to the best display. Physical features include a thin coating that prevents dust and sticky particles over the screen. Thus, you can use it even under very tough conditions.
Processor & RAM
The Leagoo Alfa 1 rocks a decent ARM Cortex A7 MP-Core MediaTek6580 processor that runs at 1.3GHz that can still combine smooth operation and perfectly timed task completion with a less amount of battery usage.
2GB RAM can always be a good support to the CPU in multi-tasking conditions and high-demanding usage sessions. The mid-class CPU speed around the average in the market, providing decent experience and load times, with no sluggish experience in scrolling and switching between apps.
With the proper 13.0 MP front Sony lens, you will never miss the life’s most incredible moments. The front camera (5 Megapixel one) has the flashlight as well and AF support that will help you to make even better pictures, even in the low light conditions.
With the face detection and auto-focus technology, taking photos is snappy. Thanks to the rear 5.0 MP camera, you can take quality selfies.
Leagoo Alfa 1 smartphone comes with the 16GB of storage capacity, which is enough to store your music, videos, and photos; basically, it will fulfill your requirements.
But even if this does not match your needs, and you want to add some high-demanding video games, you can always extend the storage with the microSD card up to 64GB, and by that make sure that you will never go out of storage space.
As the name itself says, Leagoo Alfa 1 3G Phablet is a device that supports both 2G & 3G, GSM, and WCDMA connectivity. Besides that, it also supports Bluetooth, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 version, A-GPS and many more. It also supports two SIM cards, Micro SIM Card, and Standard SIM card.
But even with all those useful features, one of the bad things that this smartphone is not supporting, is a 4G connectivity network.
With 3000mAh, we can say that the Leagoo Alfa 1 3G Phablet have a decent battery that can last for around 105 hours in a standby mode.
We wanted to know how good is this battery, so we have tested the strength of it through the online surfing, listening to music, calls and watching some videos, here are the results:
|Web browsing||12 Hours|
While the screen is black, with the gesture motion, you can access to any desired application we want. All you have to do is to draw the first letter of the application, and the gesture motion feature will do the rest, it will find and start the app as soon as we move our finger from a display.
You can find “Gesture Motion” feature under the settings and add desired letters to specific apps.
Besides Gesture Motion, there are other interesting features in Leagoo Alfa 1 such as HotKnot, NFC, Computer sync, tethering, WiFi Hotspot, OTA sync, radio FM and audio jack.
With all things considered, we can say for sure that the Leagoo Alfa 1 3G Phablet is something that you should consider buying. When we take a look at the specs, its thin design, features and durability of battery, we can say that this smartphone is a good buy. The features this phone brings to the buyer for such an incredible price is the biggest factor to consider for sure, as you can get Leagoo Alfa 1 3G Phablet for only $99.9 USD / 639.5 CNY from following online stores:
