Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Beautiful, premium, full metal unibody design, which is rare to find in this price segment
  • Very good build quality
  • Feels light and easy to use, with good ergonomics
  • Good display with good colors and sharpness (although brightness levels could have been better)
  • Pleasant looking eUI skin on top of Android
  • Excellent, top-class performance
  • Although the processor is a tiny downgrade from the LeEco Le 1s (down to 1.85GHz from 2.2 GHz), the actual difference is performance is negligible
  • Decent fingerprint sensor
  • Decent camera in well lit conditions
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Decent battery life
  • Fast charging support
  • Free bundled LeEco Membership package for a year which provides access to Live TV, curated video, 5TB cloud storage, and music services from LeEco
  • Well-built metal body, with good ergonomics, which makes a little bit easier to handle compared to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
  • Premium looking, suave design
  • Delightful, sharp display with excellent color reproduction, and Gorilla Glass 4 protection
  • Leeco's eUI over Android is neat, and uncluttered
  • 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
  • Leeco's content services are well integrated, and the free 1 year subscription is a pretty nice value-add
  • 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 fingerprint sensor
  • Quick-charging battery
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • Camera low-light performance is average
  • The LeEco content services are quite tightly integrated into the interface, so if you're never going to use the provided content or cloud storage, these apps will just get in your way and it might be better to choose the vanilla Le 1s
  • 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 bracket
  • 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 an inconvenience
