You Can Pick Up The 2016 Flagship LeECo Le Pro 3 For Just $200

by Habeeb Onawole 14

The LeEco Le Pro 3 was released last year as the company’s flagship phone. It is powered by the Snapdragon 821 and unlike some other manufacturers, the chip isn’t under-clocked. When it launched, the Le Pro 3 cost over $300 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB variant but if you head to the Amazon US website, you can pick it up for just $200!!!

Yes, $200 will get you a 2016 flagship that can compete with the OnePlus 3T, first gen Pixels and even the Mi 5S and Mi 5S Plus. The LeEco Le Pro 3 packs a 5.5-inch FHD display, a 16MP  f/2.0 1.12 µm rear camera that can record in 4K. The front facing camera is an 8MP sensor which takes decent selfies.

You also get a 4070mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support via a USB Type-C port. The Le Pro 3 doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack but you can be assured of an impressive audio experience with its award winning CDLA USB type-C earphones that are included in the box.

There is a fingerprint scanner on the back, an IR blaster, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, Dolby Atmos Audio, and even FM Radio. The only downside is that it comes with EMUI 5.8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. And since the manufacturer’s financial problem began there has been no software support for its devices.

However, there is an official LineageOS 14.1 ROM based on Android 7.1.x Nougat available. The latest build was uploaded 2 days ago, so the device is still actively supported.

For $200, this is a steal for a brand new 2016 flagship. You can order the Le Pro 3 here but do note that its only available in gold.

    Writing from a Pro 3: save your money, go for anything else.

      Yes. Indeed the software is worst

      If it’s anything like the Le S3 I couldn’t agree more. The only good thing about that device is the audio and build quality. Everything else is terrible.

        Agree with the audio and build quality. I think I dropped probably hundreds of times and it didn’t even scratch.

        I’m waiting these Chinese companies to make a all round phone that works in the US, but besides the OnePlus there’s no much of a choice out there.

        I would like to go back to Xiaomi which is always my favourite but again, no LTE.

        I need a replacement soon, OnePlus 5 is a good candidate, but now I also started eyeing the regular companies because Amazon added several phone eligible for their 5 payments program.

        If I don’t get the OnePlus 5 then a good candidate might be either the Galaxy S8 or S8+.
        Can’t believe I’m seriously considering a Sammy!

        • balcobomber25

          I strongly considered the OP5 and the Mate 9, in the end I chose the V20 for the Quad DAC and the fact that Amazon had an open box one for $260.

          The Moto Z I got because I love the idea of the moto mods.

          You could get the Mi Mix 2 or Mi Note 2 if you want Xiaomi and US LTE.

        Seems like I got shafted on build then, my old Le S3 (was my previous phone) had the bottom plastic cap on the rear peel completely off after 2 months. Fingerprint scanner stopped working after a week (seems like a common problem). The phone would also randomly freeze, requiring a reboot which happened about twice a week.

        Besides that, it was alright, for paying less than $150 there wasn’t much to bitch about.

        Now, i’m hanging in there with a Moto E4 (pretty nice phone for $70, TBH), and am waiting for the Pixel 2 to be available in-store, I don’t like to pre-order (weird personal issue).

        • balcobomber25

          Or I just got lucky with my S3 lol. Build quality was about the only good thing about it. The battery life was absolutely terrible, the camera was terrible, I also had the freezing and random reboots.

    My Le S3 x622 is only 2 weeks old, I hope it’ll go for a bit longer. I don’t want to lose $100 after just a few weeks. So far no big problems yet but I like the Cool 1 Dual better.

    It’s a shame that the LeEco company is losing money quickly that they have to sell out.
