Leagoo Lead 6 Review: Design and Build Quality
Leagoo Lead 6 has a sleek design with the thickness of 8.2mm for a 4.5-inch screen Smartphone. This is a reasonable thickness for such small screen which took only less space in width and length. It looks good for a smartphone, but we cannot compare it with the currently trendy and modern smartphones. At the same time, no one can say this is a bad looking phone. It has a decency in look. So, you can also use this for Business purpose.
The back side has a Plastic rear cap which is made with a sturdy mould and it is soft to touch with hands. In the right side, we see the Power button and on the left we see the volume button. On the top, USB port and 3.5 mm earphone jack are located. On the left side top corner of the back, rear Camera is located with a flashlight. Overall the build quality and design, both are more than expected for this low price range.
Leagoo Lead 6 Review: Display
The Display has a 4.5-inch screen which may be a small one, but Leagoo added this small screen to balance the display quality which stays at 854 x 480 pixels screen resolution. It balances the screen density at 218 pixels per inch. The clarity of the display is much better at this screen density. IPS LCD is used as the display technology which enhances the overall performance of the display. Capacitive Multi-Touch screen technology is used in the Touch Interface. In some low priced Smartphones, this technology cannot be seen. So, overall the display is also good for this price. 4.5 inch is not a much lower size comparing to the 5 inch which is the current trend.

5.0 Megapixel camera in a $45 smartphone is a great value for money.

Flashlight support is available to take clear snaps in dark light. Videos can be taken at 720 pixels HD quality. The Front camera has a 2.0 Megapixel camera which can snap clear selfies.
