When it comes to getting cheap smartphones the recent chipset from MediaTek has given a tech firm like Leagoo an opportunity to make a mobile phone such asLeagoo Shark 5000 with interesting features at a much lower price. The big win of this device will be its reverse charge technology which allows you to use the phone as a power bank sort of for charging your order device. The battery is not only enough to deliver battery juice all day long with a stellar and also a USB On The Go support.


For a cheap device that offers this amount of features the Leagoo Shark 5000 surprisingly has a metallic body with a plastic casing on both ends of the back panel. The smartphone sill maintains the stylish look the brand is known for with narrow side display bezels and rounded edges common to most smartphones. However, there is a bit of plastic here and there on the back panel with a different paintwork that won’t suggest its a metal until you look closely.

For a smartphone that is aimed at low-end buyers, the smartphone offers a beautiful design with outstanding ergonomics that make use with one hand much easier and is available in champagne gold and titanium grey respectively. It has a dimension of 77.2 mm x 155.5 mm x 8.7 mm with a nice averagely slim body, however weighing 197g the device is very much on the heavy side.

The Shark 5000 sport a 5.5-inches multi-touch capacitive screen with a 1280 x 720 HD resolution using IPS display technology.

The screen has a pixel density of 267ppi which is quite good enough although there are better qualities out there but it will certainly cost you more. It also boasts of a 178-degree viewing angle that offers a nice experience when watching movies, surfing the net or playing games.
