LeEco Le 2 Review: Price, Specs, Pros and Cons

Review of LeEco Le 2 at a Glance:-

LeEco Le 2 has huge success in Chinese as well as Indian market; phone is accepted by the public because of enchanting design, numerous features and a reasonable cost. Phone has lots of top notch specs such as Android v6.0 (Marshmallow) OS, Snapdragon 652 octa-core 2.3 GHz processor, 5.5 inches display, 16MP rear and 8MP front shooter camera,  32 GB ROM without further support of SD card, 3 GB RAM and 3000 mAh battery.
The impression of engineering in design is praiseworthy; phone is built on metallic uni-body concept. The curvature of phone is well managed in such a way that it can fit in the palm even after having large size. It is also good to see that they kept the bezels as minimum as possible. The power and volume buttons of the handset are located on the right, bottom has speakers grille and Type C port, the fingerprint sensor position at backside below the rear camera has mirror like effect which can also be used to take selfies from rear camera.
Sharpness and clearness of the content in the phone is visibility vivacious, 5.5 inches Full HD display featuring 401ppi of display density where pixels are unnoticeable to naked eyes. In full brightness visibility of text and image is crisp even in direct sunlight. The navigation keys are backlit which can be helpful for dark conditions. There is also scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for the protection.

On the pixel count Le 2 has dual tone dual-LED flash 16MP primary and 8MP secondary camera.  Having such a high pixel count doesn’t mean good output from a camera sensor. However if we talk about the price range then we can say that LeEco Le 2 is doing good job for taking photos with possible natural colours and a decent details. There are definitely noisy pictures in low light lacks detail in spot. 4K videos can be shoot by rear camera but lacks stabilization. The front shooter can cover more area in single shot with above average quality. The camera may not be the best but worth of money you spent on it.
Phone has its own eUI 5.6, which is built on top of Android Marshmallow 6.0, where the customization is simple and more users friendly with negligible cripple. 
The real performance of a Smartphone is judged by the capacity to run Graphic intensive heavy games with possible minimum stuttering. Le 2 is backed by the Snapdragon 652 having 1.8 GHz octa-core processor. It is not fully gaming Smartphone but still capable to run most of popular games, Asphalt 8 can run with lil hiccups in high graphical setting however in medium graphic setting it can run smoothly. On the other hand in day to day use multitasking is quite effortless.
Phone has 3000 mAh battery capacity with quite enough backup, a mediocre user easily can get battery backup of full day, although phone has a decent 4- 5 Hours SOT (screen on time).
