      Can’t argue with that. haha. but I think the audio on this is going to be much better. Personally, cause I like custom developments, I’d go for OP.

    finally a black phone from leeco, it´s just a little bit on the more expensive side

    • Francis

      Hi, at the end which phone have you decided to purchase? I was planning to get the Redmi 4 Prime but am still hesitating.

      • Lukas

        nothing yet, a few unexpected bills came and I as a poor student :D, can´t really afford a new phone, though hopefully in january there will be a budget for something like this
        plus i installed flyme 6 on my note 3 and it improved a performance a bit, so i am satisfied with it for now 🙂

        • Francis

          Oh I see lucky you! I am tempted by the Redmi 4 Prime but there are so many other phones out there. It is tough decision to make the right decision!

  • Cynaegeirus

    what is the point of the coolpad brand any more? that is a variant of the le eco 3 pro…

  • goodwill

    So, It’s basically LeEco pro 3. haha. Odd decision from them.

    • Nilzie

      this is more expensive than pro 3

      • goodwill

        True but honestly I wouldn’t mind paying the extra for Harman Kardon speakers built into my phone. The AKG is a plus. Knowing LeEco from my Le Max 2, I know they are capable of making phones with brilliant sound. Le max 2 has one of the best sound to date even compared to bigger names! trust me. I change phones like 4-5 times a year and I’ve tried many.

      This one comes without that ugly black bazels that Le is famous for.

      • afghanPower

        Replaced by white bezels.

        • Raky_b
