    Great phone for your buck!

    Why pay $800 for a phone it's crazy! This phone does the same thing as others. It's fast, speakers are loud. Has a decent camera.

    Make sure you download the new updates for the phone. Overall phone is great. Camera is decent, 4k recording not so good.

    I'm impressed!

    Posted .

    I received this phone free with a TV purchase from LeEco's Cyber Monday sale but have spent several days using it as my primary device. Build Quality (5/5): It has a very familiar, generic look (HTC, OPO) but still remains attractive and professional looking. Build quality is superb with this device as it has a glass/metal unibody with no creaks or visible design flaws. Some people have complained the navigation buttons are not always "on" but I love how they fade away and illuminate when you need them; it looks very sleek to me. There is no headphone jack and I would ding some points but LeEco made up for it with included accessories which will be mentioned later on. Screen (4/5): Not being QHD is no big deal for me and I wasn't expecting it from a device at this cost. The screen is a 5.5" IPS LCD at 1080p and is plenty sharp. The color seems a bit on the cool side but you can't adjust color modes in the "display settings". It doesn't get the brightest but looks very good and gets the job done. Pixels are not visible and viewing angles are very good. Camera Quality (3/5): I also own an Honor 8 and this phone's camera, while good, is far behind in terms of quality. Sure, it's fast and dependable but the shots are a bit on the soft side and colors do not reproduce nearly as well. This isn't much an issue to me because I received the phone for nothing and, while looking at the big picture, it performs great for a sub-300 phone. You will most likely be pleased with shots you take for social media. It's good. Performance (5/5): I don't have any hiccups with this phone. It multi-tasks with no effort and is pretty zippy! The fingerprint sensor is not the fastest but it is certainly not the slowest. You do have to ensure your fingers have no moisture on them as it will not perform with any condensation present. No complaints! I have read how some do not receive notifications consistently. Thankfully, this has not been a problem for me as my notifications all come in seamlessly. The Honor 8's Achilles Heel is notifications, however, and I have missed so much with EMUI's finicky software not pushing notifications even when asking it to do so; this works just fine and I enjoy actually seeing what I get! Software (2/5): EUI is a mess. This is mostly forgivable because I quickly threw Nova Launcher on the phone but certain actions such as using the multi-tasking button to access your controls just feels like they decided to throw a curve ball in the game for the sake of disruption. It adds no benefit or speed to the UI. If I could change the control settings back to their proper placement I would like this phone just a bit more. Battery Life (5/5): This phone has solid battery life and QuickCharge 3.0 is a bonus! I can EASILY get through a day with heavy use and that's a good thing! I have used phones like the Moto X (2014) and Nextbit Robin that gulped battery like me clenching to a Gatorade bottle the day after St Patrick's Day and in 2016 poor battery performance is unforgivable in a phone. There is a saying, "Make it work!" that every company should adhere to when building a smartphone that people depend on. In this case, LeEco makes it work and they do it quite well. Connectivity (5/5): I was able to throw my Cricket SIM card in and, bam!, it all worked! I was able to send/receive calls and SMS/MMS messages (another thing my Honor 8 had a hard time doing), browse the web, and use the phone without taking any additional steps. APN settings automatically updated and it was a go. Value (5/5): I was impressed with the outstanding value of this phone! In no way does it feel like you are using a cheap phone! If it came with stock Android it would be the biggest win of the year! With my package I received a beautiful "Le" branded black box with bonus accessories like a case, pre-installed glass screen protector, USB-C heaphones, a headphone adapter, quick charging block, and USB-C power cord! They really gave you everything you needed to start using their product the moment you received it. I've never been much a fan of Apple because of their stingy business model - giving consumers a fragile slate with no protection, therefore, upselling them on an absurdly-priced case at the Apple Store (which they could find so much cheaper on Amazon) to use before they leave. But then again, it works for Apple so all power to them, I guess. LeEco's Services (TBD): Honestly, I am waiting on a TV I got a big bargain on and am using this phone because it was free with that purchase. I don't have much interest in LeEco's ecosystem as I am heavily invested in, both, Google and Amazon's. Adding a third company in the mix does not appeal to me so I cannot give a genuine review of this. With that said, I do appreciate their 5TB of storage offer. Even though I back everything up with Google I might test this out sometime. Conclusion: This is a very good phone for an incredible value. Look, you will definitely want to throw a launcher on this phone when you get it... LeEco's software is a mess but the majority of it can be fixed with little tweaks. I am strongly considering making $300 by selling my Honor 8 because using this phone does not leave me "wanting" for a better phone. It is a solid performer that stands on its own. If you can get this phone for a good deal I wholeheartedly will tell you to BUY THIS PHONE!

    Worth it

    This is my second review to this phone. My original on is the titled: Don't buy without protection plan. Best Buy won't let me edit my original comment (absolutely ridiculous Best Buy, like seriously come on it's 2017, let your customers edit their product reviews) Anyway, Le Eco contacted me and offered me a replacement phone plus a gift! This is a serious turn around from my initial impressions of their customer service. I wish I could just edit the original review since its bringing down the overall star rating to this phone. Anyway I still recommend a protection plan or good cover for this phone. I found a temporary solution to front buttons that don't work. Downloading a toolbox app from app store. its a okay fix button causes other issues. I do recommend this phone. Its fast and a great value. Just don't drop it...

    A lot of phone for relatively little $$$

    Posted .

    I was skeptical that a phone one sale for $169 could include features found on much more expensive devices, but they're all here, including 32GB of memory, large high-resolution screen and two very good cameras. It also comes with earbuds, charger with Type-C connector, SIM card slot-opening tool and soft protective case. The Android operating system works well and, after I got used to it and learned where everything is in its menus, it jas turned out to be the best phone I've ever owned. A very, very good value.

    Excellent phone

    This phone is both attractive and loaded. For the price, no other phone can boast of better features, eg 4k video recording capability. Unfortunately, this phone doesn't support an SD card, although you can get an additional 10gb of cloud storage for free. The phone doesn't accept every sizes of SIM cards. And, unlike other phones with dual SIM cards,it is only one SIM card in this phone that would support data. If you charge this phone for too long ( after it is completely charged), the battery can become permanently damaged etc. Buy it for the looks and the price, but know that it has some drawbacks.

    I love this phone. It is beautiful, fast, responsive and is able to do everything I want it to do easily. I have had no issues with the battery even while setting it up. It takes beautiful photos and the camera is easy to use. Cons - It doesn't seem to have much in the way of cases screen covers etc. available on amazon or best buy but it did come with a clear case and an dongle for those who want to use a headphone jack. I would say that for the price it's a great phone, but it really is a better phone than many that cost much more.

    Unique flavor of Android

    This phone is an interesting one indeed, it has a great build quality and for the price, its specs can not be beat. It has a good screen, battery life and decent camera. Now while I returned this phone as it does NOT have a headphone jack, it relies on the USB type C (they provide an adapter in the box), but I could not be bothered with carrying adapters where I go, this is the main reason why I returned it. It has a heavy skin from the maker of the phone, if you like Moto/vanilla style Android, stay away. If you like additions and something different, this will likely fit your need.

    Solid phone

    This phone feels solid and well built. Seems to have plenty of processing power for my needs. Also has good volume, a plus with me. got it on sale and its way worth the price. I would say this a good mid level phone that I paid budget phone price for. the only things i dont like is the interface, it takes getting used to and needs workarounds. also no headphone jack requires an adpter.

    Good but a few bad

    Posted .

    Everythings good as a smartphone should have. Design is sleek and modern - heavy weighted. Feels solid like a pricey phone. HERE ARE THE BAD. Does not have a 3.5mm audio jack. It comes with an adapter for a 3.5mm audio jack. No memory card slot to extend storage and trust me even though 32GB may seem a lot at least 10GB goes towards your basic phone requirements already. Battery is built-in so if you plan to keep this phone for a long time it will degrade over time(all battery does) and you can't just buy a new battery and put it in. If you can live with the above 3 issues its a great phone for the price. I'm returning mine.

    Don't have $800 to buy a new phone. This is a great option. Super fast easy interface gives other company's a run for there money. While using it may take some time to get used to since I've always had galaxys after a few days I was fine. Over all it was a great purchase.

    Great size screen. I like the resolution. The 32 GB storage is a key factor for me with the latest OS. Best price on key features and it works as described

    Purchased the phone to replace an ASUS Zenphone 2 and this thing flys compared to my previous phone. The OS is a little weird to get used to but downloading certain apps help. A great buy and I completely recommend.

    Its hard to find a phone with 3gb RAM in this price range. Nice design, good screen length does it for my wife for whom i bought this. Camera is also not too bad, we got some amazing pics on our recent outing.

    I purchased this phone as my second phone. It looks good, performance meets most of average users' needs. It is quick and 5.5 inch screen seems so good. It is a real solid phone.

    For the money, a phone that's hard to beat

    Is the phone perfect? No, but what phone is? Good quality screen, easy-to-use Android operating system, plenty of memory (32GB), good rear camera (16MP), good front (8MB). And it comes with a soft protective case and earbuds. It's also a fairly handsome phone with its big screen and brushed aluminum housing. A good value at Best Buy's regular price of $249; at $169, it was pretty much of a steal.

    Great Phone, cheaper version of Galaxy

    I love this phone, it works just as well as the bigger more expensive brands like Samsung. I just don't like that it doesn't have a direct aux port and you have to use an adapter.

    Phone is too big for my taste in terms of screen size, but good quality and value. It has lots of specs for the price. Software is not as great as hoped
