LEAGOO M9 Review – A Budget Dual Front & Rear Camera SmartphoneLeagoo M9 Pro Android Phone

Technology has advanced in leaps and bounds in the past couple of decades. We went from bulky cameras with expensive film to digital cameras. We are now in the era of High Definition cameras in our pockets. Leagoo has made it their mission to improve this technology, and that is why it brings us the new Leagoo M9. A mobile phone that has dual front and rear cameras. Lets have a closer look, in this Leagoo M9 Review!


The polycarbonate body of Leagoo M9 has a well-rounded metallic finish, together with a glossy paint similar to that of metal. The meticulously crafted rounded body flows smoothly, which makes it a pleasure to hold. Around the edge of the fingerprint identification button and the dual rear camera is a circle of metal, adding a premium feel to this budget friendly device.


The Leagoo M9 features a 5.5-inch IPS screen covered by Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 glass with IPS technology. The IPS screen makes the images more vivid and gives you a greater angle of vision. It also offers a very realistic colour reproduction and provides an impressive visual performance. The Leagoo M9 incorporates the new 18:9 aspect ratio design with an 80% screen-to-body ratio which gives the Leagoo M9 a more comfortable grip and a visual experience without obstructions. It ensures a wider view and larger screen, without the need for a larger phone.


Powered by an efficient quad-core processor, the Leagoo M9 is able to handle your daily tasks with ease, providing you with a smooth and enjoyable experience. Thanks to the MT6580 processor combined with 2GB of RAM, the Leagoo M9 will give you respectable performance. Most modern applications will run well, with very little lag. However – high end, graphic intensive games may stutter occasionally. Though, at this price point, high end usage is not really the desired objective most users will be looking for, and makes it easy to forgive.


With more light being absorbed by the 8MP + 2MP dual rear camera, you can expect high image quality and reproduction power from your phone. The excellent dual front camera (5MP + 2MP double front camera + LED flash) of the Leagoo M9 has multiple photo enhancing features right out of the box, such as providing flattering lighting of your skin to outline the shape of your face. The Leagoo M9 has a soft light photosensitive LED, which aims to increase the light absorbed by the sensor. That means you can capture more detail in low-light, dark environments.

The M9’s dual camera also features a new portrait mode with a SLR-type bokeh effect. The foreground figure is sharp, while the background image is blurred in a way that is usually reserved for more high end mobile devices. Benefiting from stereoscopic vision and it’s depth learning algorithm, the Leagoo M9 allows you to capture seemingly professional-grade photography, right from within your back pocket.

Speakers & Sound

Sound from the built in speaker is sufficient, but average. The highs and mids are clear, though the bass is a bit flat. Using headphones will improve the overall sound quality for mobile music lovers, as is the case with almost any smartphone.

Battery performance

Powered by an average 2850mAh LG battery, the Leagoo M9 can last the average user all day with a single charge. Whilst the Leagoo’s optimizations system has yet to be proven, a decent stand-by time of 5 days is possible.

Operating system

The M9 is running the new Leagoo OS 3.0 on top of Android 7.0 Nougat. This software combination, together with the power-efficient MTK6580 chip set, will provide the user with a smooth and stable user experience.

Overall Impression

Overall I feel that the Leagoo M9 will impress budget sensitive users with decent specifications and a quality camera set-up. Combining modern aesthetics with a more classic metallic fit and finish, this phone is sure to impress.
