russell342, 09 Jun 2017I am using the Le Max 2 in the U. S. and it doesn't have any system update button in settings.... moreAmerican version has seller rom, so you cant update it. If yoy wanna update your rom, you should install china/indian stock rom. China one doesnt contain gapps, and has 26s version, indian version has gapps and less bloatware but its stuck at 19s.
If you wanna install default rom, use twrp and install it after 4 wipe
Phone is beetar but usb otg nat connected also then Chang usb port ???? not connected.
I am using the Le Max 2 in the U. S. and it doesn't have any system update button in settings. When I download official rom 5.9.021, rename it update.zip and open it in file manager to update, it goes into recovery mode, starts to extract., but stops after 45 seconds and says that file is corrupt.
If I do a factory reset, what will I lose in the function for 4G lte in the U. S.? Will I then be able to upgrade with the official rom? I have already backed up all of apps to another storage device. Love the phone, but it would be nice to be able to update it.
Anyone help will be well appreciated. Thanks.
I have a Le Max 2 X829, and I have no problem whatsoever, 3g / 4g work perfectly. What I see as bad is the rom, but nothing a Custom can solve.

If you need 3,5 jack - you have adapter, but i be use bluetooth headphone - is around 30 buks. If you need more then 64 GB.. I think is that for me nice. I now have phone with 32+32 (card) gb and have more then 50% free speace...
buying le max 2 mobile is a disappointment.. often hang.. daily twice and then you have to restart..

leeco le max2 very good mob & good parformence but (-) point is no memory card sold nd no 3.5mm jack
Azizulhakimi, 15 Apr 2017Hi. Help me to decide whether buy this phone , LeEco Le Max 2 or Huawei P9 lite.. TqIt is a travesty of justice to mention Huawei P9 Lite and LeEco LeMax 2 in the same sentence. LeMax 2 is better than P9 Lite by leaps and bounds...no comparison really. I've both phones in hand right now. LeMax 2 - the real deal; P9 Lite - hype (And I'm a Huawei fan).
NB: Even Redmi Note 3 trumps P9 Lite. LeMax 2 trumps both phones, with the only exception being that Redmi Note 3 has better battery life than the other two.
I bought leeco max 2 (820) version and I use AT&T network. I am facing lot of issues with signal and most of the time I need to restart the phone.
I checked with "Leeco Customer Care" and they mentioned Leeco Max 2 any version will not support in USA. Leeco Customer care people mentioned only S3 and Pro3 only support in USA.
My suggestion is not to buy Leeco Max 2 in USA especially from china (like geekbuying.com).
Been using the x829 model for about a month now in the USA.
+Hardware specs are a crazy good deal for ~$200
+Incredibly fast once you put a custom ROM on it. I use Lineage OS 14.1.
-Mediocre camera that becomes bad once you use custom ROMs
-Modem is bad, can't maintain full bars on Wi-Fi/4G LTE even though my older phones could. Internet seems to function normally though.
-Fingerprint scanner is slow and usually doesn't function anyways
-Like the Axon 7, the black borders around the screen stick out like a sore thumb because the phone has no black color option.
If you're tolerant of the drawbacks, it's pretty much the most powerful phone available for a person on a $200 budget. I still like it for what it is as a budget phone.
Anonymous, 19 May 2017Go for oneplus 3 it has no software issues as oxygen OS is light.. oneplus 3 is also 2-3 times more expensive :)
add on to what i said the os of leeco took up so much ram and it was hard on the phone i also paid 250$ for mine plus shipping which came in 7 days dhl
