I've had the phone for a couple of weeks and can only speak positively about it. I imported it into the UK from an internet seller based in China - big retailer who installed the international ROM.
The first thing to remember is just how little this costs - just $299. For that kind of money you simply can't then compare it to $500 smartphones and point out the shortcomings of the Pro 3 - because for an extra $200 they could improve the display and the camera - but they've chosen a price point and for that you get extraordinary value for money.
The Snapdragon 821 is lightening quick and the 6GB RAM makes sure you can use multiple apps without any chance of there being a lag - they all zip along. I use it as a business phone and can't fault it for that. It downloads files on the move from my cloud storage, I can view PowerPoints without a problem and I use TypeApp for email which is superb.
Being a former BlackBerry user who loves the keyboard and the swipe feature I have downloaded an APK and use it effortlessly. Google Voice allows me to do a lot without actually touching the phone and unlike a few people on here I get access via the fingerprint pad sub-second without any problem.
The other BIG plus as a business user is the whopping great battery life. I don't have to worry any more about finding somewhere to recharge during the day when I'm out of the office on the road. I get almost 2 days out of the battery. The quick charge is exactly that - about 80 minutes for a full charge although I never go to 100% as it wrecks the battery so I stop at 90% and still have no problems with the battery running out.
Alen, 31 Oct 2016I received my le3 and all is perfect except it charges slow. Is there an option to enable qc3?I have a Le Pro 3 and it definitely uses Quick Charge 3.0. The battery life and charging are about the best thing on this phone. I get 24 hrs with NFC, WiFi and BT on running no power saver and custom brightness. I have never used the included charger because I have QC 3.0 and QC 2.0 chargers all around the house. I get full charge in about 1 hr.

I've had mine a few days and I am returning it. Hardware wise it is pretty awesome. However the fingerprint reader is pretty terrible and the GUI is absolutely terrible. Without a third party launcher there is no app drawer or even apps in settings. The worst part for me is there is no way to tap to wake and the only two ways to wake the phone is the power button or the fingerprint sensor which usually takes 3 attempts to wake. This applies even when the phone is kept unlocked by trusted devices. BTW the very aggressive RAM management also shuts down my double tap app and other running programs so there goes that option. C'mon I have a $150 Huawei that wakes to double tap! Talked to Le Eco who said they will record my suggestion. All I can say about the LePass entertainment option is I am glad I'm not in China because the "Chinese Netflix" entertainment options really blow. It is very inconvenient to use on an everyday basis.

The version being sold in the US is a 4g ram/64g storage model. How many different versions of this phone are there? There was no option when I ordered this phone to get the 6b/128g version. DAMN
AnonD-314083, 20 Oct 2016Already ordered 64gb version with 6 gb ram 12 hours screen on time,perfect daily runner to com... moreHave you gotten your phone yet? Does it work with Verizon? Just curious. I also have Verizon and would like to switch to this phone.
Never mind. I misread "version" "for "verizon". Understanding that Verizon is a CDMA based phone, but there are handful of unlocked GSM phones that will still work with Verizon given you have a SIM for 4G LTE. I apologize for the misunderstanding of your comment. You can see where I got carried away in haste to ask if it works lol.
