Wow, cheapest yet. Unbelievable specs for the money. But beware this model (X722) has locked bootloader and no development or custom roms, and no NFC unlike the others in the range. If you just want to use it as is, then great deal.

XDA forum for this model:

forum.xda-developers.com/le-…ods

For those who don't know what the fuss is about, this phone is in the fastest top 10 in the world, at a fraction of the price of the others...

Amazing specs. Shame about the lock

Amazing specs. Shame about the lock

Specs mean nothing. Full of spyware. Unless you root , and remove spyware , it is not even usable . But then banking apps will not work.
Wish it was a Xiaomi & came with Android 7 instead of only 6. Same rear camera as the OnePlus 3T, Xiaomi Mi5 & a Huawei Mate8 - so not bad at all: kimovil.com/en/…-rs
I was reading good things about LeTV/LeEco till quite recently - did someone say they were going out of business (?) or something?? Think Xiaomi are still the brand to beat, really.

Found the comment, here: hotukdeals.com/com…567 (edited a little for relevancy, but this thread was about the LeTV Leeco Le S3 X622)

Joe90_guy11th Sep
I posted this phone up last month when it was £90.44 from AliExpress. I thought it was a bargain phone then (even though the deal went icy cold!). At £79.99 this is a great deal.

Given that LeEco (or LeTV as they were originally called) are teetering on the brink of bankruptcy, I'd assume there will be ZERO updates for this phone. Also, given that it's a Mediatek CPU, there may not be any custom ROMs to flash the phone with. However this phone has been around for a while now and I suspect a lot of the initial bugs have now been sorted. As regards spy-ware; well if the Chinese want to spy on my boring life, let them! They'll die of boredom before they find anything worth stealing.

It's very likely these very obvious price cuts are a means to dump stock. They may go cheaper still but I for one am very tempted to get this phone before stocks finally run out.

You'd pay double this for a Xiaomi with this CPU. And the SD821 versions of this phone have lots of Android 7.1.2 custom roms...

Oh.. sorry Bangood, I thought this is HOTUKDEALS !!!
Don't get me wrong, but apparently all Bangood deals are good deals and we have loads every day...
What are people's thoughts on Vernee M5 phone with 5.2" screen and 4GB / 64ROM ?
It's on Gearbest at the minute ?
Shame no MicroSD slot, but well-deserved heat
I've had this phone for about a month now, got it from banggood for £156 ,, fantastic phone have no complaints what so ever. The phone is fast no slowing down , camera is good, battery life is really good. It's bargain at this price.
Ordered one a month ago, still not received it.
I'm more tempted by Le Max 2 @ £132 though, with 5.7" 2K screen & 21mp OIS camera...

Oh joy! I am being quoted on HUKD!!

A lot of what I wrote previously was supposition but yes, LeEco ARE in trouble. They expanded way too fast, especially in the US, then had to beat a hasty retreat and shut facilities down as their cash flow problems exacerbated.

However I was right in my prediction that prices of these phones would drop further. This variant, the X722, was on for £134 from Banggood just over three weeks ago and I thought that was cheap. At £125, this is approaching the price level of phones with a measly Mediatek 6750T! Regardless of Grumpy Sam's dire warning of viruses, this must be worth the risk for such little money.

I had good intentions, and I appreciate reading the knowledgeable comments on these threads Is there that elusive Chinese phone with a stonking camera, fast processor, MicroSD slot and Band 20 that any nice HUKDer could recommend? There always seems to be a "catch" with China phones - or maybe I'm just a negative nancy

The first "true" China phone I bought was for my sister's husband - the ZTE Nubia Z7 Max (did a Deal about it, as did other HUKDers before me). It's flashed with an English ROM but seems stable and takes good photos (same sensor, Sony IMX214 Exmor RS as the Motorola Moto G4, Xiaomi MI4, OppoFind 7 and Oneplus ONE), though no Band 20.

I fell for leeco as well but only learned hard way . Their prices are too good to be true. But the reason they are shutting down is spyware and bloatware in their phones. Maybe they got away with their bluff once . They could have been big like Xiaomi or Oneplus but they are evil so no business for them or their phones.

Once again you come across as if you assume your personal experience is the law of this site and will disregard anyone else's experience. Just like how you justify all your B20 bias with the fact that you struggle to get signal in London, therefore you think everyone must get a B20 phone

You had a bad experience with a spyware associated brand therefore they are evil and you'll condemn them on other people's threads but since you had no problems with another spyware associated brand (Umidigi) you'll post a deal for one of their phones and then ignore people pointing out their spyware/adware issues

I have another umidigi product with no spyware. If I knew , they were selling spyware I would not reccomend. I will find out soon when I get the phone and check it as it was on presale. You can reccomend rubbish because it is cheap. I cannot .

How can install ROM from XDA without rooting your phone ? The first step is to Root at XDA with another malware. And then banking apps do not work because they do not trust rooted phones

I have nothing against Mediatek either. My own phone is Mediatek. I think Xiaomi are associated to people's perception of Mediatek. Xiaomi in the past have released updated Snapdragon variants of some of their original Mediatek phones (Note 3 & 4). The updated version is considered better which leads to Mediatek processor criticism. However I've never noticed any problems with mine, such a poor GPS etc.

I just pointed out Mediatek because sam_of_london has previously said it's better to get Snapdragon, which to me implies he considers Mediatek inferior, yet says he doesn't recommend rubbish for being cheap but has posted multiple deals which suggest otherwise.

What delivery method did you choose when ordering? Do you know what the customs charge is (£??)?
Came via Swiss Post and Royal Mail. Total charge £11.42 including £8 post office handling fee. First time I've ever been hit by duty. The pain is not the charge, but the delayed delivery and absence of tracking while they are assessing the item.

Mediatek hasn't made any good processor recently. So they are obviously outdated now
