If you are looking forward to get hold of the LeEco Le Max 2 that packs great specifications despite its disruptive price tag, you need to first read this content. We have come up with 10 reasons why you should or should not purchase the Le Max 2.
World's first CDLA enabled smartphone
Le Max 2 #1
The Le Max 2 is the world's first CDLA standard enabled smartphone. This standard paves way for the transmission of end-to-end lossless digital music. Being the first smartphone to ditch the 3.5 mm audio jack and using the CDLA Type-C interface, the Le Max 2 has created an audio revolution.
Snapdragon 820 Processor
Le Max 2 #2
The Le Max 2 is powered by the powerful Snapdragon 820 chipset from Qualcomm. This processor is teamed up with a whopping RAM of 6 GB in one variant that should be highly capable of letting you work on anything intense without any concerns of your phone experiencing lags.
Quick Charge Feature
Le Max 2 #3
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset also brings the Quick Charge 2.0 feature to the 3,100 mAh battery that will charge it for a few hours of talk time with just a few minutes of charging.
Le Max 2 #4
The Le Max 2 is priced at Rs 22,999 and Rs 29,999 for the 32 GB and 64 GB storage variants respectively. The other flagship smartphones with such high-end specs are definitely priced way to high.
LeEco Content Membership for free
Le Max 2 #5
The Le Max 2 is bundled with free one year Content Membership that is priced at Rs 4,900. This includes over 50 Big Ticket International Live Concerts, access to live streaming of major music concerts and entertainment events across the world and 7500 hours of world class entertainment.
Lack of 3.5 mm audio jack
Le Max 2 #6
Though the Le Max 2 is the first one to come with the CDLA headphones that render a great audio experience, it misses out the standard 3.5 mm audio jack that is right now used by many people. This makes it mandatory for the users to purchase the CDLA earphones to listen to audio.
Expensive CDLA Earphones
Le Max 2 #7
If you are lucky enough to get the free CDLA earphones on the first flash sale of the Le Max 2, you need to purchase the same separately paying Rs 1,990 that is too expensive. Given that the Le Max 2 does not have a 3.5 mm audio jack, it is mandatory to purchase the CDLA earphones to get a great audio experience from the smartphone.
Lack of Expandable Storage
Le Max 2 #8
The Le Max 2 comes in two variants - 32 GB internal storage with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage capacity with 6 GB RAM. Though these storage capacities should be enough for an ordinary user, the lack of a micro SD card slot for expandable storage is a bad thing.
After sales service is a major concern
Le Max 2 #9
LeEco claims that it has 555 service centers spread across 300 towns in India and they also have a toll free helpline for their customers that operates 24x7. But, the catch is that none of these outlets are prepared to repair the LeEco smartphones for now. The reason is that none of these centers have the necessary parts and resources for the repair.
Lack of Bundled Accessories
Le Max 2 #10
Many smartphones that have been launched lately come bundled with some free accessories such as a screen protector and a protective case. Unfortunately, the LeEco Le Max 2 does not come with such accessories.
