The Langogo Genesis has been smartly thought to be used as fast as possible and get immediate translations.
Indeed, the brand did a great job designing the controls of the device, incorporating a modern touch sensitivity screen technology inline with smartphone’s screens and a simple button’s layout with a dedicated translation button.
This translation button gives immediate access to the translation app with a “press and go” instant translation-ready mode in less than a fraction of a second since the button is pressed – in fact, this is one of the many major advantages that this translator offers over fiddling around your smartphone looking for the translator app and waiting until it is open and ready to operate.
In addition to this, the translations are done nearly instantly within 1 second of listening to the spoken words.

Construction & Build
The Langogo Genesis feels fairly well-built with a main housing made of polycarbonate and a front reinforced Asahi glass.
Overall, the translator does not feel like an all-metal rugged smartphone but neither as a cheapo plasticky product. All in all we find it to offer a fair compromise to remain light but sufficiently durable.
The Langogo Genesis has a touch sensitive screen with capacitive technology and a diagonal size of 3.1″ that responds to “touch tapping” and gestures.
The brand does not specify the PPI of the screen but it explicitly discloses that the screen used offers Retina resolution.
On real usage, the screen looks crisp with well-defined fonts that are easy to read.
In addition to this, the screen does not show any negativization of colors and wide 180 degrees viewable angles in any direction – the screen brightness can be manually adjusted with a slider through the settings.
The Langogo Genesis runs a customized Android OS with a homepage that shows the time and date plus the Translation app icon and the Global WiFi. A sliding gesture to the left will show 5 additional “apps/modes/menu options” (if updated to the latest software version), including:
- Interpreter mode – bi-lingual live translations
- Euri – AI assistant
- Intelligent recording – audio recording and speech to text transcribing
- System messages
The top bar of the screen shows the connections status, signal strength and SIM chosen; while the right upper edge informs the battery charge with an icon and with percentage readings.
The system language can be chosen among 8 different options.
The Langogo Genesis can translate more than 100 languages, including locale variations of the languages such as:
- English (13 country options)
