I have just bought Le Eco Max 2.
The hardware looks great and the screen offers an excellent quality. Loaded with a lot of apps and antivirus running in the background, Antutu still runs at 115 000 (+ 20 000lower than the official score).
Contrary to what is said in some review, there is no NFC device in the Le Eco Max 2 4Gb-32Gb.
However, the software is not well finished. The French translation is only partially done. Using either Firefox or Chrome, it was impossible to listen to some web-radio at a time and place where my previous smartphone (Zopo ZP999) could easily do it and where internet speed test proved to be excellent (50MB/sec).
The native apps like e.g. phone and contacts are basic and need to be replaced by better ones available on Google store. There are several LeEco apps only usable in China (and in Chinese) but they cannot be inactivated.
The control over apps permissions is far not so extended as on my previous phone but I don't know whether it is linked to the phone or to the difference between Android 6 and 4.
Camera not tested yet.
Conclusion: great hardware poor software, for geeks mainly
On the internet, there are some ROM in preparation but rooting and flashing the ROM is not for anybody.

I forgot to mention may be the most important. Lack of so much valuable time and nerves by trying to explain the issue to people who barely understand English and they ask you to flash (hack) the phone -something that majority of us aren't familiar with and also means you lose the warranty according their t&c! You are lucky if you get 1 dodgy (unuseful) e-mail per working day! So we have over 40 emails sent mutually till get there... nearly two months..
My one had mic issues. Other end were struggling to hear me. I sent it back but i lost around 55 gbp both way shipping costs. I will never take another Chinese adventure. May be up to 100 gbp but nothing more. As they say the cheap one often costs to you more than the "posh" one.
dont buy this mobile ... i think its camara show 21 mp bt actuallly in compare to other mobile it is the worst one
For those who hesitate because no sd card slot , please note you can plug any USB key on it with a Type C adapter ( non include ) and we also easily find Type C 32gb/64gb memory , so it's not 100% same than SD card since you will have something plugged on bottom but it can help to load some music or movies for a trip !
I guess you will please to note this
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2016I agree with you bro I'm a smart phone lover. I have Samsung S5,Samsung S7 edge, Note 3 & 5,Sony Z ultra,Z3+, Huawei GR5 ,G7+ & LeEco Le Max 2.I've found Huawei is the best & LeEco Le Max 2 is worst within these 4 brands.( Compared by speed,charge,display,camera,design,sound quality, hitting issue, price etc.
mj, 10 Jul 2016Did u buy this bro don't tell false thing. its very good phone under this price segment Bro, I had bought it from Flipkart, used it for 7 days (Ordered on 28-June, Recieved on 1-July, Returned on 8-July, Got Refund on 9-July)
I was eagerly waiting for the phone. And have never been let down to this extent.
its a great phone .. you can't compare this phone to mi5 and one plus 3...because of its specs and price this phone is delivering very good interface.. i dont think at this price any phone is giving this kind of specs... but apart from praising this phone... its a heavier(185 gms) one

I bought it in the first flash sale and had to return it. Flipkart support folks admitted that majority of the people who bought the phone are returning it. And Flipkart have decided to refund the amount instead going for a replacement.
The phone is good in terms of screen and processing power but it just dont stand a chance even against Redmi Note 3 for other depts.

Yeah I know there are quality control issues in leeco phones and their usb audio is all hype and does not deliver better audio. I have not used it but I don't think it is as bad as you say it is.

2. Camera is junk. Anyone who is comparing it with MI 5 has not used it. OIS is just a namesake.

Bottom line: DO NOT BUY.
