LeEco Le Max 2-SD 820-6G 64GB-2K Screen-Band 20 £175 @ Geekbuying

Found 8th Jun
Cheapest this version has ever been. Has band 20, a lovely 2K screen, really nice build and a huge 6GB of RAM which for this price is incredible. Undercuts the competing Xiaomi's and ZUK's by a fair bit.

agree it's certainly a deal, but something this expensive from China is a deal breaker for me.

have voted hot as it's a hot deal.

Amazing specification for the price and heated on that alone, but as mentioned having something like this coming from China makes it a no deal from me, would end up with hefty customs charges for sure on something of this value?

Quite surprised no retailer has taken the initiative to import these and sell them here to take the hassle and risk out of it for UK buyers....

Yep. Hot deal. I posted one of the last deals on this but didn't bite due to some poor reviews on the finger print sensor particularly.

Not if you choose free delivery, the likelihood is very little. And even with customs charges it's a lot cheaper than buying it from some dude on eBay and a lot more phone for the money compared to the usual Moto etc. People do import and upsell them on eBay, but it's so wildly overpriced it's not worth it.

Apparently, it's the X829 (American Version) that's plagued with these issues according to a few on xda. The X820 seems fine, but I don't know totally

Last year I bought an LeEco for the missus from geekbuying and is really good. I know of a few others who have also purchased the same brand phone and all are impressed. Only issue has been the crap cable that comes to charge the phone. It's happened to 2 of the people I know but they are cheap enough on
amazing

I'm yet to figure out why a phone could possibly need 6gb ram and why most tablets annoyingly still only have 2gb but hot deal anyways

No phone needs 6gb of Ram but it looks good and it's cheaper than improving the camera's which are mediocre on every Chinese phone I've ever used.

​I don't get why people complain about something where more can only possibly mean better. Android is going to increase and increase in memory usage, 4GB will soon become the standard and 6 will seem mid range.

The cameras on the LeEco and Mi5(s) are fine, if you want a better camera as a priority, spend £125 more for the LG G5

X820 and x829 have both had fingerprint scanner issues though both my x829s were fine on stock 19s rom(not as quick to read a finger as any xiaomi I've had though acceptably fast).

Could someone who has this (or a similar model) advise on whether this would be a good upgrade over a LG G4? I still like the G4 but having issues with charging it (port seems loose) and could probably return for a refund, which would just about cover this....

​Yes, the G4 is a terrible phone. Going from that to this would be like going from a Ford Escort to a Ferrari F430 X)

If a Chinese phone came out with an awesome camera and no reliability issues/bugs then I'd bite!

Lol, the phone is a ticking time bomb. The crap processor heats up and in conjunction with the poor solder, it bootlooping is inevitable. Even £100 phones don't have this. Fair enough if you can abide those issues, but it's slow, runs hot, poor build quality and all these issues are widespread.

I've a Xiaomi Mi5S. Sure, no Band 20 and the camera is slightly below the G4 but I'm fine with that, I know my phone isn't killing itself from basic usage and won't heat up uncomfortably

​I think you may have had a lemon. Though interested to find out if any other G4 owners noted that the official charger heats up like mad when trying to charge any other phone. I mean HOT! Absolutely fine when charging the G4.

Oh no, wasn't me who had it, just a friend. I loved my LG G3 even though it couldn't quite push the 1440 screen, but the G4....their phone bootlooped and the power button became embedded even though they treated it like a baby. To their credit LG replaced immediately, but still these are issues sadly common with LG and the SD808/10 in general. Pathetic chipsets unfortunately.

It is, spec is unbeatable at this price. Good phone too IME, I only sold on as it was too small.

I know it is not the place to defend the G4. Unfortunately LG has terrible CS. I have still 2 devices have been repaired cuz of the BL issue. However, I haven't realised any of those overheat issues you are talking about even with charging with a QC charger. No slowdowns, both of them still snappy and in daily use. OK those ones BL unlocked and running custom roms.

Oh and just to let you know I still voted hot.

I have this phone. The specs are very good but full of Leeco spyware. Unless willing to root and install other ROM , official ROMS are full of spyware. You are buying Chinese spyware and virus, be warned.

I'm familiar with the tripe spouted by Sam and have no wish to engage. I do have a wish to let others know such that they may buy a great phone without fear.
