Is the Leagoo S8 worth the slogan “hold small and see big” ?


Leagoo S8

The new Leagoo S8 is getting the well-deserved attention lately and the makers are of course trying to fuel the fire with releasing numerous comparison videos against various other big name phones. Today we have for you a new video showcasing the compact dimensions of the phone in comparison to the iPhone 8 Plus with actually smaller screen.

For starters let’s just correct one mistake, because it’s obvious the compared model is really the iPhone 8 Plus and not the iPhone 8 mentioned in the video, that would be too much of a sci-fi to be smaller than 4,7-inch model. But even against the bigger 5,5-inch IP8 Plus the Leagoo S8 comes out as significantly smaller and because it has a big 5,72-inch screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and 85 % screen-to-body ratio, it’s quite a feat. Check out for yourself.

In the build quality and design choices there is really something to the Leagoo S8, the CNC frame metalwork is very good, bezels are ultra thin with 1mm and the thickness is also toned down with only 69mm.

      My wardrobe fits in 32gb but it’s not so big. I mean, someone will find it adequate, I’m sure

        They should spend less time on themes and more time on stability.
