Le 2 Review|Design
The design is not much changed, the Le 2 looks similar to the previous generation Le 1s but the rear of the phone is completely redesigned. There is a bigger camera glass and a Semi-circular Fingerprint scanner below the camera and a Dual Led flash on the right side of the camera.
The addition to the design the Le s has a 3.5mm headphone jack at top but the Le 2 lacks it, it packs the newly launched CDLA technology in which the headphones are inserted in the USB Type-C port for a better sound (the Output is actually better than the traditional 3.5mm jack).

Le 2 Review|Performance
LeEco Le 2 packs an octa-core Snapdragon 652 and 3GB RAM. Le 2 handles the overall tasks very well, we played some games like Marvel: Contest of Champions, Asphalt 8, Nova 3 and Morden Combat 5 and it handles it well (We noticed some frame drops in Marvel: Contest of Champions and Asphalt 8(when played on max graphics)), but overall the gaming experience was a breeze.
The RAM management is also not bad as it was in Le 1s, the apps doesn’t get booted out of the memory and we get around 1.2GB-1.5GB of free RAM after clearing all apps. I must say the eUI is now much optimised on Android M. Booting time is also good.

Le 2 Review|Camera
It packs a 16MP rear camera and the photos taken comes out to be fine, the contrast is good the saturation levels are nice, photos are not oversaturated. The low light performance is also nice, the photos comes out clear.
Le 2 holds an 8MP camera on the front which is a huge improvement over the first generation Le 1s.
Checkout the images taken from Le 2 below (will add more images shortly).
Le 2 Review|Battery Life
Le 2 packs a 3000mAh cell in it, same as the previous generation’s Le 1s but thanks to the new eUI 5.6 running on Android M the battery optimisation is really improved on Le 2, the standby time is also increased here are the battery stats with some moderate to heavy usage.
[section label=”Conclusion” anchor=”Conclusion”]
LeEco Le 2 is the best budget phone to buy out there till date because of its good looking unibody metal design, light weight, the all new Snapdragon 652 processor and the new CDLA technology. But as you all know nothing is perfect it has some minor flaws also like average speaker output, fewer customization options, and a Quality Control issue which @geekyranjit talks about in the video.
Apart from that the phone performs great and in general usage, you will not get any problems with this device.
