LeEco Le 2, an overview + specification and features

LeEco Le 2 from the Chinese LeEco company, which was formerly known as LeTV, was launched in April 2016. The phone is a successor of the company’s Le. Just like the Le, the Le 2 has a metal body, giving the two phones almost similar physical designs but, as expected, the company got some better features for the Le 2.

LeEco Le 2 comes with a 5.5-inch touchscreen with an approximately 74.4% screen to body ratio. Its display resolution is 1080 × 1920 pixels at 403 pixels per inch.

The phone is reasonably light, with the weight of 153 grams (5.39 ounces) making it portable enough. It measures 151.10 × 74.20 × 7.50 mm of height, width, and thickness, dimensions that are just enough for one’s pocket.

Its battery capacity is 3000 mAh and is non removable.

It comes in four colors; silver, gold, grey, and rose gold.

For the hardware, the LeEco Le 2 houses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset, which has an octa-core processor with one quard-core cortex A72 cluster clocked at 1.8GHz. It is paired with an Adreno 510 GPU. The device has a 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The disadvantage about this phone’s storage is that it cannot be expanded.

The device comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture and a 8-megapixel front camera with an f/2.4 aperture. The rear camera supports phase-detect AF, which is quite something, considering that LeEco Le 2 is a budget phone. The camera interface is simple, with common tabs such as slo-mo, video, photo, and pano. The photo screen has a slider which shows options such as HDR, night mode, square frame, and a few other camera settings. The camera, though usable at night, is better for daylight images.

It uses the Android 6.0.1 Operating System along with LeEco’s proprietary EUI 5.8 skin. The phone comes with no app drawer, therefore, all apps downloaded are on multiple home screen.

Its connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, Infrared, USB OTG, and Dual SIM which is Nano and can operate on 3G and 4G networks. The sensors of the phone include compass magnometer, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor and gyroscope. However, the gadget lacks some sensors that are currently adding a competitive advantage to other phones, such as barometer and temperature sensors. Its fingerprint sensor is also impossible to use. Many users have raised complains about taking as long as three hours trying to log into the fingerprint scanner.

Performance wise, the LeEco Le 2, though it can’t compete with some recent gadgets with really improved features, is not badly off. Users have approved the sound produced by the earpiece speaker as loud and clear and no distortion even at high volumes. Users have, however, complained of the speaker getting distorted by high volume. The Qualcomm Snapdragon and 3GB RAM running the device make sure that it runs smoothly on most occasions. No experiences of hanging have been noted with the phone even in gaming. Heat management is good, with the phone’s temperature never going above 36 degrees Celsius (96.8 degrees Fahrenheit) even after heavy gaming. Benchmark scores of the LeEco Le 2 have lined up with quite highly rated gadgets such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 which is powered by Snapdragon 650 chipset, meaning that the Le 2 is quite something.
