The Letv leeco Le Max 2 is the company’s latest flagship for 2016, and expands on what we’ve seen with the Le Max. The screen is a more 5.7 inches (from its forerunner’s 6.4 inches), and a 2.15GHz Snapdragon 820 SoC guarantees that you won’t face any lags in everyday use. The 21MP camera is one of the best at recording 4K video, and you get free access to LeEco’s impressive fingerprint sensor. However, LeEco’s choice to move to USB-C for the 3.5mm jack is stupid.

DESIGN & BUILD QUALITY
The Le Max 2 sports a great build quality with metal unibody and chamfered edges. At the front, it looks like there is no bezel but very thin bezel can be noticed when the display is on.
At right hand side, we can find power and volume rocker buttons. At back, there are 21 mp shooter camera with dual flash along with fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor is a bit slow compared to other mobiles but it offers unlocking even when the phone is locked. At bottom, we can find the microphone gill, the main speaker and a UBS type C port which double as headphone jack and charger.
The display of this mobile is 5.7” QHD LCD. It offers a great viewing angles and the 2.5D glass over the LCD panel gives the display a boost in terms of quality. There is no problem in watching the screen in direct sun light.
The unit with 4GB of RAM doesn’t overlook anything with regards to multitasking or using a few applications. You’re not going to observe any lags on the Le Max 2. The device has a single speaker at the bottom, which delivers satisfactory sound. Although, it isn’t the loudest mono speaker we’ve seen, yet it’s sufficiently noisy that you won’t miss hearing approaching notices. Additionally included is Dolby Atmos support, and those hoping to get the device, are well known that is is chiefly a showcasing.
The Le Max 2 offers a 21MP camera (with a f/2.0 lens, OIS, PDAF, and double LED flash. At the front, there’s a 8MP shooter with a f/2.0 lens. The camera is quick to auto focus in sunshine, however takes a longer to focus in poor lighting conditions. The pictures look incredible when seen specifically on the mobile, yet exchange them to a conventional screen and you’ll see it tends to overexpose shots. The camera altogether better in sufficiently bright conditions, yet in the event that you’re taking shots in too much light or low-light conditions, you’re not going to be extremely satisfied with the quality you get. The front camera is a 8 Mp shooter which offers a great quality.
The battery life on the Le Max 2 is decent considering the mobile has a 5.7-inch QHD display and a 3,100mAh battery. We have managed to make the battery last for a day or more on average, with normal utilization including no less than two hours of browsing, a hour on social media, a couple of hours streaming podcasts and music, and a couple YouTube videos through the span of the day.
The device offers Quick Charge, which while isn’t the speediest approach to charge your mobile – allows you to rapidly charge the mobile to last a longer during the day.
After the review, let’s have a look at the advantages and disadvantages of the device –
- Fast performance
- Decent camera
- Free access to LeEco’s content ecosystem
- USB-C audio
- Average battery life
- Slow fingerprint sensor
At the end of the day, it’s the user’s choice to go with the phone or not. But it’s a good in terms of build quality and performance with mediocre camera. But the removal of the 3.5 mm audio jack and slow finger print sensor is a down side for most of the buyers.
