LeEco Le 2 Unboxing and First Impressions

by Linus 10

LeEco (formerly known as Letv) may be still considered as a newcomer to the smartphone game but they have released quite a few high-quality smartphones in a short amount of time. LeEco Le 2 is one of the latest offerings by the company and it indeed looks like a nice phone for a reasonable price. Learn more in our unboxing and first impressions article.

Thanks to Oppomart for sending LeEco Le 2 for a review.

The phone ships with some paperwork, USB type C cable, SIM ejector pin, a fast charger and last but not least USB type C to 3.5mm headset jack adapter since the LeEco Le 2 does not have a classic headset jack.

The first impressions once we took the phone out of the box – it is just gorgeous. An excellent all-metal build quality, nice and tactile buttons and the rose gold colour looks awesome.


One of the most interesting aspects of this phone is that it does not have a headset jack. Instead, LeEco assures that this phone is capable of providing even a better audio experience via the USB type C. We will test it out in our full review.

We have the same 5.5″ 1080p display, which is nice and sharp, nicely backlit capacitive buttons, notification LED and 5MP camera on the front. Design-wise, Le 2 very similar to the Le 1s, which is also a great looking phone.

The metal surface is very nice to the touch. We have a 16MP camera, dual tone dual-LED flash and a fingerprint scanner on the back.

LeEco Le 2 shapes up to be a great phone. It has a powerful processor, premium look and feel, and it is working fast and fluid as all LeEco smartphones. As usual, stay tuned to Gizmochina for our full review.

    The audio adapter provided with the phone is disappointing. It might be fine for some, but not being able to charge and listen to music at the same time makes this phone to handicapped to consider. Especially as USB C audio does not really confer any audio benefits that i’m aware of. Is anyone aware of them?

    • Ivo001

      Curious, in what situation would you like to charge and listen to music at the same time?
      I really only charge my phone at home, and when i’m there i have acces to my stereo system (even with bluetooth)

        Because some people have to go on bussiness trips or work in delegation. One have to be really narrow-minded not to see shortcomings of a/m solution.

        Maybe it’s not so common. My phone is used for music as much as anythng else. So i’m often listening to music whilst using a portable charger. I also tend to work in front of computer a lot but then have to go get things etc, so I tend to listen to music on my phone while it charges from laptop, then unplug it when I have to grab something. I also record using a condenser mic via otg and listen using earphones. There are quite a few use cases that are excluded by this system for no obvious gain.

    How much chinese bloatware is preinstalled on those LeEco mobiles?

  • jimberkas

    anxious to read the full review! pretty excited about this phone.

  • Tremaine Underwood

    I am actually keen to hear what the audio output is like with the converter. Le 1 apparently had really good sound quality, but I have a feeling they have probably made it sound crap through a straight converter(using normal earphones) to push their new standard. I am just guessing and I hope I am wrong.

  • DC

    Hmmmm…. no SD expansion, also have to carry the headphone adapter……

  • Steven Fox

    I do believe LeEco have a winner here for China, India and the Asian market in general. Don`t think they are interested that much in a Global appeal, considering how they marketed the LeTv series and now LeEco 2.
    I am trying to get a sample for reviews, but will probably not recommend for a EU,US users.
