Le 2 is another smartphone from the Chinese giant LeTV which is now known as LeEco. Its first two phones, 1S and LeEco 1S, have no difference in terms of design, but Le 2 has been designed a bit differently, which looks good.

Similar screen size and quality

Having the similar size 5.5-inch display, the Smartphone fits quite comfortably in hands and again there are very thin bezels. The screen has 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution and a PPI of 403 density. The IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen doesn’t attract scratches as but smudges can be seen. The display is sharp and produces rich and vibrant colors. The screen is bright enough to be used in the direct sunlight however it has only 155 lux brightness level, which is low. You can enjoy videos and games as well as share the screen with your friends and family as it has great viewing angles.

The metal body

As like previous smartphones, this one also has metal body painted in Gold, silver and grey. We received gold version, which looks premium and feels great as it has curves at both sides. The gold painted body is smudge proof and rarely attracts scratches. The fingerprint sensor is placed below the camera, having the mirror finish it works like the magnet to smudges.

Capture quality images

At the rear, it is equipped with a 16 MP Pixel master camera with dual-tone flash to capture decent quality images in both day and night. It clicks high-resolution photos with an aperture of f/2.0. You can record decent quality videos at the 4K resolution as well. It produces sharp and vivid images with natural colors. The camera OS has various modes and options to customise your photography experience with it. At the front, it has a 8 Mp shooter to click selfies. This also produces good quality images.

Runs smoothly without any lag

Le Eco Le 2 is packed with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 processor clocking at 1.8 GHz Processor paired with 3 GB of RAM. The phone runs on Android Marshmallow version 6.0 which is wrapped in EUI 5.6. The customised UI is quite elegant and simple to use.

During the test, we used the phone for more than three weeks and it runs without any performance glitches or lag. We also played different high graphics intensive games such as Asphalt 8 Airborne, Mortal Combat X etc. and there was no visible performance lag.

It comes with 32 GB of internal storage but you can’t further extend the memory as it doesn’t support microSD. It comes with type C port for charging and earpieces connectivity, it could be liked by a few while a few may miss the 3.5 mm jack. Type C port helps to charge the device quickly and offers better transfer rate in comparison to microUSB. But as the single port serves both charging and headphone connectivity so you can’t use them simultaneously.

Good battery that stays for a day

The Le 2 is backed by 3000 mAh battery that can last for the entire day or even higher depending on your usage. We used the phone for more than a day with usual calls, Internet browsing, playing games, watching videos, etc. in our video loop test it lasted for 6 hours and 49 minutes playing video over Wi-Fi with full brightness and volume.
