(LeTV) LeEco LeMax Specifications and Price, Hands on Review

LeEco’s LeMax is the latest smartphone entrant in the Indian market. And challenging our set notions about Chinese smartphones being complicated and bulky, this sweet device is turning out to be a feature-packed smartphone that goes big on performance. Let’s have a closer look at what Le Max has in store for us!

Design and Display:

Le Max is a giant of a smartphone with a 6.3-inch display and overall stats to be 167.1×83.5×8.95mm, making it one of the biggest smartphones available in the market right now. And thanks to such a bulky structure, the device weighs 204 gms, so yes, you need both your hands to handle this one.

At first impression, we thought this is a bad sign, but then after getting our hands on it properly, we realized that is a really good smartphone to possess, as the screen-to-body ratio isn’t that bad. Le Max comes with a full unibody metal design with plastic gaps for the antenna; it has a bezel-less display combined with proper aluminum and glass covering in the front section.

The bezel on the device is just 1.6 mm which is pretty thin for a device this large. But nonetheless, we didn’t face any kind of issues due to this while using this device for our review.

Le Max has an 80.2% screen-to-body ratio, which is one of the highest that we have seen in any device so far. LeMax also has a fingerprint scanner on the backside. The back side also consists of LeTv branding at the bottom, with a camera, dual LED flash, and a secondary mic. On the left-hand side, you get the mute switch, which helps you change the profiles of the device along with the volume buttons.

The right-hand side comes with the power button and dual nano sim slots. No there is no SD Card slot since LeEco is a content company; they already have some pre-loaded content for you. This also helps in the strategy of keeping piracy at bay. Also, the lack of expandable storage can be a real pain point for some users!

On the top side, you have an infrared remote for TV remote control use and a 3.5 mm standard jack. At the bottom, you get a USB type C port along with two grills in which, only the right-hand side is the speaker. And the left-hand side is purely for aesthetics.

Software and Performance:

Le Max comes packed with a 2.0 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC coupled with 4 GB of DDR4 RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The software onboard gives you ample skinning and customization options, but they have been kept minimal so as to not take a toll on the overall experience of UI.

The customization does not go that deep, thanks to which you can change the UX themes and wallpapers but cannot select individual icon packs and custom fonts.

There are many other small things that make you feel special like the touchpad can take its place anywhere, from left to right to center depending on where you like to swipe on your screen, the ability to change the dpi of the software, etc.

The overall performance of Le Max is pretty great. The apps chugged along just perfectly and even the gaming experience was pretty good as well.

Though the device might heat up a little bit while playing games, it’s not that noticeable. The fingerprint reader at the back side works perfectly too and took just a few seconds to unlock this giant.

Camera:

Le Max comes with a hefty 21 MP rear camera and a 4 MP front camera, which is a little odd as we were expecting the front camera to be between 8-13 MP but it has a larger pixel size so it’s kind of better when compared to normal cameras.

LeMax has come up with an easy camera app also known as a viewfinder.

Video Samples

It features a single button on the top left accompanied by flash settings and switch camera options. The rest of the options are pretty standard and basic like landscape, portrait, beautify, etc.

While in daylight the pictures were perfect with a slight blue tinge, the low-light pictures had a red tinge in them which was an eyesore for us.

Battery:

It comes with a surprisingly small size of battery, only 3400MaH as compared to its giant size. The battery lasted for about 20 hours from normal to regular usage and had to be plugged in by day end. Also, the battery is non-removable.
