Source: Pocket Lint English version
The LeEco Le Pro 3 is an affordable phone with potential. Consider its aluminium unibody design, the beefy Snapdragon 821 chip, long-lasting battery, and great-sounding stereo speakers and there's plenty to praise.

Model: Le Eco is a well known Chinese phone manufacturer that produces reasonably price Android smartphones. Its latest addition, the LeEco Le Pro 3 is an affordable but top-performing smartphone, which matches the best phones out there. The Le Pro 3 isn’t the only one in the range, ZTE’s Axon 7 and the OnePlus 3 also offer similar specs for the same price. The LeEco Le Pro 3 features an aluminium unibody look that is very similar to some of the high-end phones such as the iPhone 7 and the HTC 10. It is a design built to look high end. One of the coolest aspects of the phone’s design is that it does not have on-screen buttons. Instead, it has capacitive buttons like the Galaxy S7. The buttons aren’t lit up until they are used. It is a unique aspect of the phone’s design that helps give the device a premium feel. It also keeps the front of the phone totally symmetrical. The display panel itself is edge-to-edge, which means there is no aluminium bezel on either side. However, there is still a slight bezel in the display panel, but at least with the screen off, it doesn’t look like there’s a bezel at all. Just like the OnePlus 3’s display, the Le Pro 3’s display features a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. While this is not as high as a Quad HD resolution, it saves engery and increases the battery life.

When it comes to ports, LeEco decided to get rid of the headphones jack. However, LeEco includes a USB-C to 3.5 mm adapter. Thus, wired headphones can still be used. This is not something new. Apple did the same thing with its iPhone 7. The volume rocker and power button are on the left side of the phone, and the SIM card tray on the right side. As for specification, LeEco Le Pro 3 packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. This is a pretty good hardware specification for a budget smartphone. The camera on the LeEco Le Pro 3 features a 16 MP sensor with a f/2.0 aperture and phase detection autofocus. It is capable of 4K UHD video capture and upscale effects, including slow-motion. The Le Pro 3 also offers an 8 MP selfie camera, which is solid enough for selfies or video calls. The phone may be thicker than thinner competitors, but it offers a giant 4,070 mAh battery, which is well worth the extra weight. LeEco also offers Quick Charge 3.0 technology, which means the phone can be fully charged in 15-30 minutes. Phones have progressively gotten more secure over the past few years with the addition of fingerprint sensors, which is a good thing for those who hate having to remember a password or PIN number. The Le Pro 3 also has fingerprint protection that can be used to unlock your device or make mobile payments. Phones like the Le Eco Pro 3 are an important addition to the market as they show us that good phones don’t have to be expensive.

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

78.33%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
