summarizing opinion across 9 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Flagship-grade design with a beautiful metal unibody
  • Beautiful, large, sharp display, with excellent contrast levels
  • eUI on top of Android is a nice, clutter-free, and butter-smooth experience, and has welcome customization options
  • Top-end performance backed by latest, top-end chipset
  • Very good fingerprint scanner
  • Excellent video player with seamless 4K playback
  • Very good loudspeaker
  • The Le Max 2 camera gets most things right with plenty of detail, contrast, and dynamic range and good HDR and Panorama modes as well
  • The 2160p videos are equally good as the still images from the main camera - fluid frame-rate, great detail, nice contrast, colors and dynamic range
  • Free bundled 1 year LeEco content subscription is a pretty nice value-add

What We Didn't

  • Heavy and a bit cumbersome
  • Battery life is decent, but could have been better
  • 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
  • No NFC support
