You Can Now Buy LeEco Phones and TVs on Amazon US

by Habeeb Onawole 5

LeEco launched in the US last year, bringing its phones and TVs to the North American country. After the launch, the company organised a number of flash sales for its phones and TVs on its LeMall website. But since the flash sales ended, the company has expanded sales of its products to other major shopping sites like Target and Best Buy.

In order to make its products available on more platforms, the Chinese manufacturer has now added online retail giant, Amazon to the list. So if you are an Amazon user, you can now purchase either the flagship LeEco Le Pro 3 or the mid-range Le S3 for $400 and $250 respectively.

You can also pick up the LeEco 55-inch 4K smart TV for $700 and the 65-inch variant for $1100. If you want something smaller, the 43-inch variant is also available for $450.

The LeEco phones are not bad at all. The Le Pro 3 for example has a snapdragon 821 processor, a 5.5-inch FHD screen with Gorilla Glass 3, a 16MP rear camera, 4GB of RAM,and 64GB of storage. It also has a USB Type-C port and a 4070mAh battery. The only downside is the lack of an audio jack and if Apple and Motorola can get away with not having one, LeEco should too.

The company announced a smart bike at CES this month and says it will be available in the US. When it launches in Q2 2017, chances are it might be available for purchase on Amazon as well.

    i have the S3 and wouldn’t recommend it at $250. I bought it for $150 and its been everywhere from $130 to $250. Its a pretty good phone at $150-180, but I’d get the ZTE Blade V8 Pro for $230 instead of the S3. and I think the TVs are all overpriced.

      I tend to agree with you. For $150 it has been a very good phone but at $250 I would need something with a better camera and a bit better battery life.

  • Maybe this is good news in the US, but you can buy these phones and many others on Amazon in Canada too but be prepared to pay 20 to 30% more for the privilege. I regularly check prices of unlocked phones on several phone retail sites and Amazon Canada is always way more expensive. I can import the same phone from a retailer in China, pay DHL and import duties and pay a lot less than buying from Amazon in Canada even with free shipping.

      That is generally true but what you have to watch for especially with Chinese brands is warranty protection. Some brands sell specific models for specific countries and won’t honor the warranty if you buy it directly from China.

      • True, but I have never had a phone that needed warranty protection. I think it is a low risk and if I get one that needs repairs I am prepared to take into a local cellphone repair shop.
