Making its highly anticipated debut in the Unified States, Le Eco launched a vast collection of items. These include smart TVs, bicycles, autos and obviously, smart phones. The company also introduced two new gadgets – S3 and Le Pro 3. We got an opportunity to play with the Le Eco Pro 3 for some time and here are our first impressions.
Looking at it for the first time, we nearly confused the Le Eco Pro 3 with the HTC One. The handset heavily borrows from the HTC One. In spite of having a 5.5-inch display, the phone is shockingly comfortable to use with one hand. It has a sparkly metal body which makes it look quite premium. Power button and volume rocker are set on the right side, while the SIM slot is on the left. And for the bottom, that is the place where USB Type C connector and the speaker can be found. On the rear side is a 16MP primary camera with LED flash, alongside a square shaped fingerprint sensor and the compaqny’s logo. The front panel is to a great extent dominated by the 5.5-inch display, above which sits the 8MP selfie-shooter, earpiece and the usual cluster of sensors.
Le Eco Pro 3 showcases a 5.5-inch Full HD display of 1080×1920 pixel resolution, which is further protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass. Since we had limited time with the gadget, we observed the display to be decent. It’s sharp, vibrant and color reproduction is on the point.
Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, the Le Eco Pro 3 is supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There’s no 3.5mm sound jack though as the USB Tpye C port (with CDL support) is utilized for audio output. The phone spots a 4,070mAh battery with Quick Support. The dual SIM setup is hybrid, so csers will need to pick between expandable storage and the capacity to use two SIM cards.
In spite of the fact that we played around with the Le Eco Pro 3 for just a limited time, we encountered the gadget getting somewhat warmed up even after moderate usage. This is more noticeable as a result of the all-metal body. Apart from that, the phone took care of everything from random app switching to light gaming with no issues.
Le Eco Pro 3 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the company’s EUI layer on top of it. The UI is quite perfect and simple to utilize. Unsurprisingly, there’s no app drawer and all the apps are laid out on multiple home screens.
Now for camera, Le Eco Pro 3 features a 16MP rear camera (with LED flash) and an 8MP front-one. Amid our limited use, we observed the camera to be ‘okay’. It snaps good looking shots in normal lighting conditions. Color reproduction is great and the beautification feature enhances the selfies. The camera app of the phone itself offers multiple modes and filters to improve things.
Le Eco Pro 3 is quite a good attempt from the organization to charm the US audience. It offers a balanced set of specs and looks great too. But to give it my final verdict, we have to wait for it to launch in India.
