Additional Features

The LEAGOO Elite 4 can also function as a power bank, if you need to recharge another smartphone, or mobile device. Just use the provided USB-to-micro USB converter to attach the other power cable. Then hook the Elite 4 to the other mobile device, and it will start recharging the drained mobile device.

Of course, the LEAGOO Elite 4 only has a 2,400 mAh battery, so its functionality as a power bank is limited unless you carry a spare battery or two. Still, it is a nice feature to have in emergencies.

The LEAGOO Elite 4 also has dual microphones - one to record your voice, and the other to record ambient noise. This allows the Elite 4 to cancel out the ambient noise for a clearer recording of your voice.

WiFi Problem

During our tests, we noticed a problem with the LEAGOO Elite 4's WiFi connectivity. It will randomly drop the WiFi connectivity and refuse to reconnect again. It wouldn't reconnect even if we turn the WiFi off and on, or turn on on Airplane Mode and off again.

The only way to get the LEAGOO Elite 4's WiFi working again is to restart the Elite 4. After it restarts, it would automatically reconnect as if there was nothing wrong at all.

Our Opinion

Contest iconThe LEAGOO Elite 4 was quite a surprise, a pleasant one. When one buys an Android smartphone at this price point, one does not expect not just an 8 MP main camera but also a 5 MP front camera. Even the Apple only offered a 5 MP front camera in their latest iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.

Of course, sensor megapixels do not tell the whole story. The LEAGOO Elite 4's main camera is quite temperamental. It can take very good photos with proper exposure, but it can also take photos with a bluish cast or a glow, probably from bright lights shining at certain angles.

Even though it uses a Sony sensor, it is probably an older model because the images produced were quite noisy. This isn't a problem when the photos are displayed on the Elite 4 itself, or posted online in Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. It is only a problem if you blow it up to 100%.

Its video recording capability was better, even though it was limited to 720p at 60 fps. The Elite 4 did a decent job of controlling the contrast of the image being recorded even though details were lost in the shadows.

We were also quite happy with fully-laminated IPS display. No doubt it was only a QHD display, but it was bright and vivid. Overly bright actually at its default setting. We found that it was most comfortable with the brightness setting at around 30%, or with Adaptive Brightness enabled.

As far as performance goes, the LEAGOO Elite 4 was relatively snappy in work apps, even though it was only powered by a MediaTek MT6735 SoC running at just 988 MHz. However, it is really not a good choice for playing 3D games. Don't worry though - it has no problem handling Candy Crush and Angry Birds. :D

LEAGOO appears to take a different tack from the minimalist approach of many other smartphone brands. They bundled the Elite 4 with a screen protector, a USB-to-micro USB converter and a set of earphones. They even threw in a box of 3 pairs of replacement earbuds (of different sizes) for the earphones!

If you are looking for an Android 5.1 Lollipop smartphone that won't break the bank, the LEAGOO Elite 4 might be just what you need. Retailing at just RM 499 (~USD 119), it packs more features than equivalent smartphones from more established brands. The LEAGOO Elite 4 is best used for surfing the Internet, email and messaging, office applications and light games.
