Design And Display
LeEco has carried on the design standard which it set earlier in the Le 1S smartphone. The Le 2 got premium looks and is completely metallic.

The phone comes with 5.5 inch full HD display. The colours are at the right place and everything looks vivid and beautiful on the phone.

Performance
The  LeEco Le 2 comes with 3 GB of RAM and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset. The phone is really fast. The Antutu Benchmark gave the phone a score of around 80,000.

For Gamers: The latest chipset is always a treat and things get better when it does not heats up. The LeEco Le 2 is a great phone which will keep the gamer in you alive and kicking. I played online games with demanding graphics like the Walking War Robots and Modern Kombat 5 and it was an awesome experience.

Camera
LeEco has upped the ante by putting in a 16 MP rear camera and a 8 MP front facing camera in the phone. However, the images clicked say a different story. Check out the images clicked below. Click on them and enlarge to check the real image quality.

Sadly, LeEco Le 2 comes with an average camera. The other phones closely competing with the Le 2 in the same price bracket offer slightly better camera experience.

Battery life
I found the 3000 mAh battery decent enough to keep me going from 9 am to 6 pm with moderate usage.

Verdict
If performance is your sole criteria, then don’t think twice and opt for the LeEco Le 2 smartphone. It does not slows down or heats up and is a powerhouse in this particular area. However, the camera is not that great and if camera is the priority, then you can go ahead and explore the likes of the Moto G4 Plus and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
