LeEco held a big event in Beijing, China, to introduce some of its new product. They cover a lot of different topics, such as television sets and a particularly ambitious project involving making an electric car in collaboration with Aston Martin. However, the main focus of the event was the three new phones being launched, the Le 2, the Le 2 Pro, and the Le Max 2. In this post, we talk about Le2.
The 2 in the name makes it clear that these are successors to LeEco’s previous version, the Le 1s, and the Le Max. As such, they aren’t dramatically different and have a different specification.
The Le 2 and Le 2 Pro are the cheaper models. The main difference between the two mobile phones is the chipset; the cheaper Le 2 has the MediaTek Helio X20 with 3GB RAM whereas the Le 2 Pro has the MediaTek Helio X25 and comes with 4GB RAM.
Visually, the two phones are practically identical. The only difference is that the Le 2 has a thin body colored bezel along the side of the display but on the Le 2 Pro it has been painted black to make it look like the display flows over the side.
• Well-built metal body, with good gripping in hand, easier to handle compared to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
• Premium looking, nice design
• Bright, sharp display with excellent color reproduction, and Gorilla Glass 4 protection
• Leeco’s eUI over Android is neat and responsive
• Sublime performance, powered by the Snapdragon 652 and 3GB of RAM, which put it right on top in this price bracket, along with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
• The free Leeco’s content services 1-year subscription is a pretty nice value-add and well integrated.
• The Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) technology introduced with the phone uses the USB-C interface to drive audio tracks to headphones with more power, higher bit rate and lesser signal noise, thereby providing high resolution, nearly lossless audio
• Accurate and fast fingerprint sensor
• Quick-charging battery feature
• Battery life is good, but not as good as it’s top competitor – the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
• Camera is good, but not as good as the Moto G4 Plus, which is the top camera phone in this price range
• You will need to use CDLA compliant USB-C headphones to actually derive the benefit of the lossless audio technology (instead of using standard jack headphones with the bundled USB-C to 3.5mm jack adapter)
• You will not be able to charge the phone at the same time as listening to music, which could be a big inconvenience
