Great phone for money. Wonder how long LeEco support their phones for though. If 2+ years then would probably bite.

Looks good, although im slightly concerned that it only has a rear snapper, would expect a front snapper as well for this price.....

It's got a front camera too

​Yoink!

Given they are a fairly unknown brand to UK consumers, I'd want to know what (if any) OTA software updates would be provided. Owning an unsupported, unpatched Android device isnt great and a device like this is unlikely to garnour a huge community on dev sites like xda developers.

The specs though for that money cant be sniffed at, wonder what the quality of the materials is like?

No b20 for 4g and no 2g support so actually using it as a phone might be difficult in some areas.

If the benchmark of 136410 is correct, then it scores above iPhone 6s for a lot less money.

​Negative. this model X829 does not have B20 4G band. There are other models of this phone with B20 Band but slightly more expensive . I would not buy any phone in UK with out B20 Band.

(slightly off topic but important)
Considering EE are worse than horse manure! Actually that's an insult to horse manure.
This makes B20 very important to ensure a choice of networks. On the 9th of March EE did some work in the AL5 area and changed the frequency/spectrum. I lost GPS on 30 PDA's that were on EE. At first I couldn't believe that a mobile frequency or spectrum could affect GPS reception. Trying out O2 and 3 sims proved it was true. Anyways EE refused to address or even accept the issue, resulting in me moving over to the other networks on payg.

Serve's you right for having 30 PDA's.

I wonder if that battery tell's porkies?

​All networks do this. When Three started Volte or Voice over Lte in London , my 4g reception became so bad, I had to move. Earlier when EE started 4G, my Tmobile 3g phone showed as offline for no reason , so I had to upgrade to 4g.

It is this sort of story that makes having band 20 so important.

I was thinking small battery for the screen size - most 5" to 5.5" screens come with bigger batteries these days.

Apparent build and material quality to rival Xiaomi (well respected on hukd by those that own them), I have the 4GB/64GB X829. Much as people hate me saying it, I have no issues receiving 4G data on 3 without band 20 though I sometimes find 3G is faster anyway. As I rarely use it as a hotspot I find 3G speed fast though someone will be along shortly to tell you to spend more for something you'll likely never need.

​yes i have found that being in London this weekend ; the 4g network on three network is abismal !! i was thinking is it because of the high buildings everywhere ? expected it to be a great signal here , i get better signal living on the outskirts of Glasgow .

Good Review On GSMArena

I've been looking at this for a few weeks now and decided to bite the bullet. I've not been able to find a negative review.
I went for a EU warehouse one in the end as only 20 quid more and quicker delivery. Do not know why this didn't get more heat.

Issues with the fingerprint sensor have put some off though mine is fast and reliable. EUI isn't unpleasant though I prefer MIUI. My biggest gripe is the size, it's too small!

Have you tried a custom rom on it yet, & what was the screen size of your previous / main phone?

No, I tend not to use custom rom if I can help it, standard rom is fine. Other phone is mi max.

How does the camera on the LeTV compare to the Mi Max? I'm guessing it the usual 'poor in low light' that affects almost all the phones made by the lesser known (0in the U.K.)manufacturers,

I have a mi max and love it, but on the lookout for a replacement for a G4, but possibly with a 5.7" screen, looks like it might need to be one of the premier manufacturers, maybe a G6.

A few have mentioned the software on the LeTV is a bit glitchy - anyone confirm this is the case? A comparison to Miui in terms of usability and any glitches would be helpful.

Camera gives better pics on the le max 2 though can't comment on low light as I tend to use a camera (will try to do some comparison shots). I have no issues with EUI (though prefer MIUI), no glitches, memory control better than my mi max which slows with multiple programs running (tho mi max is 3GB vs 4GB on le max).

Thanks, fair enough - will probably keep the custom rom too if I ever get one (as I do like my banking apps to work).

Ok, that explains your "too small" comment now. Will be a step up for me as my current phone's screen is 5.2" (Huawei P8). Presently using EMUI, so probably won't mind EUI either.
