Dasman, 09 Jun 2016LeEco is just a TV entertainment brand too...and such a beast phone with a missing audio jack ... moreno audio jack doesn't mean no earphones/headphone they have introduced new technology CDLA
By the way, while the Control Center is indeed nice, it's suffer from the same inconveniences as iOS's.
Say you're watching TV live on an application provided by your ISP or so. If you just want to change the screen brightness you will need to press that multitasking key.
At that moment, your live streaming app will stop, and when you go back to it, you will need to rebuffer.
Simple inconveniences like that eventually make you think that too much messing with Android is not a good thing. You can of course install widgets for the drop down notification menu, so the user has a workaround, but it shows that the software has many flaws to begin with.
Copying iOS is fine with me, but some companies like Huawei do it while improving where Appel fell short, not simply reproducing the silly stuff.
The best hardware in the world won't matter if the governing custom UI is terrible. LeEco, Xiaomi really need to step it up...
I've honestly come to appreciate pure OS.
I don't know where you get your info from, (maybe QC), but the capacitive fingerprint sensors do read 3D. At least the ones from Fingerprint Cards.
And from Febuary 17:th all Fingerprint Cards sensors can be equiped wih an anti spoof detection.
Further Fingerprint Cards has developed an inhouse algortithm that renders an even higher security level and speeds up the verification process.
It is not a coincedence you compare the fingerprint reader to Huawei P9 since Huawei P9 is the first phone to use the new algorithm and thus has the best sensor on the market.
If your preference is a convinient, fast and working fingerprint scanner you should make sure your phone has one from the Swedish company Fingerprint Cards.

I don't know if you can root it without flashing this rom, though.
There's a Chinese and an Indian firmware, as far as I know.
Built-in apps are non removable. More importantly, I know an issue with the Le Max which might still exist on this one: if I click on a Twitter/Facebook link from Chrome, very often, the dedicated app won't open, and I'll end up with the built-in browser launching instead. This is very annoying since it can also happen with Youtube links, which the browser is unable to play.
The software simply never asks you wich app you want to use when multiple applications can take care of a specific type of link or file. Instead, you have to go to the "default apps" menu which only recognises some applications, has a fixed set of categories, and is inefficient (at the very least, Twitter links should open with Chrome, which I set as the default browser, and yet...).
Clearing defaults for the integrated browser changes nothing (it has no default to begin with, and yet it still overtakes everything).
LeTV phones are very good deals, but a few details can be annoying occasionally.
I think the review is biased regarding the camera all other reviews i have seen pointed out that the nightshots are really bad unusable by any means and the video suffers from being unable to refocus ,the camera in this is really a let down and cant call it a flagship camera also we can compare to the daylight shots made with the same senzor on the meizu pro 5 and the difference is huge and meanwhile corner softness is present on almost any camera on the letv max 2 the corner softness cover over 40% of the picture.
You describe camera as good, so explain why its so blurry...
What more to say about it... camera UI is meant to be simple, but to shoot the way you want you must swipe through many choices. Why not just include button for every function on screen, when you shoot every milisecond matters. Same as UI of sony. What matters is not how screen look like but how useful is it....
hey guys what's the best and most effective antivirus app out there today?
Shame there's still no UK/EU launch. Nice review but pointless to many readers (that's directed at the oem and retailers).
Is it built like a flagship. Last video i saw of this phone - It bent and cracked off like a soggy cookie
Great looking phone, great price and specs. The only concern is the battery life - the first round of LeTV phones had poor battery life. I would rather have a regular HD display and longer battery life or pay more for it - my choices for great battery life: Meizu Pro 5, Xiaomi Mi5 and Lenovo Zuk Z1 - all over two days between charges.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2016why isn't the small screen size listed as a disadvantage (like the case of the mi max) for som... moreSmall ? Do you really think 5.7 inches display is small ? Regular smartphone size is 5-5.2 inches. Only phones like iPhone 5-5s-SE can be considered small.
Bad battery endurace,bad design and bad camera. Its will be cheap.
With rising popularity od Chinese online stores in Europe i think it might sell quite well outside of China. I've see my friends having tons of fun with those imported handsets. Batteries seem to last long enough for at least a day, the features are as good as on other handsets but the price is the key factor here as we get A LOT of phone for peanuts. LeEco should hire a nave speaker though or at least hire someone to translate the interface because "CLEAN JUNK" is not the most fortunate of phrases.
