LeEco Le 2

LeEco Le 2 is a flagship smartphone with a 5.5-inch FHD IPS In-Cell display. Based on customer feedback, LeEco has integrated Snapdragon processor to combat the heat. The smartphone includes patented fingerprint technology with 360-degree touch unlocking and the fingerprint payment system.

Le 2 offers fast charging through USB Type-C port. Furthermore, the smartphone ships with Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) technology to provide a unique sound experience through specially designed headphones. You should buy a separate headphone to work with Le 2 audio port. However, LeEco bundles a USB Type-C to 3.5 mm adapter along with the product package.

The main attraction of LeEco Le 2 is that the device comes with free one year of entertainment content in the form of Levidi and YuppTV. You can watch live TV channels by selecting the middle icon from the bottom portion of the device. The Levidi includes movies on demand via ErosNow. You can expect the addition of live music soon.

[ps_prices] We recommend LeEco Le 2 because it ships with an excellent power-efficient processor, huge RAM, and internal storage. Moreover, you will get free one year of supertainment package paired with fast charging, CDLA audio, and Android Marshmallow. You will experience heating during charging, but that is normal for a fast charging device. Even though Lenovo K5 Note includes a large battery, the camera specifications are not on par with LeEco Le 2. Moreover, the absence of fast charging technology gives Le 2 a definite advantage over K5 Note.
