& another thing, most of the "Le" apps cannot be disabled (even if I'm not going to be using my freaking phone for a remote, which goes to the actual... jsst, nooohhh... O.o). It's just annoying.
Even if it does have 4GB RAM, it does no good if system resource is going to use it all up like it does. I've attached a screen shot showing just what it does.
Every. Single. Day.
First, the PROBLEM: This company is going bankrupt, and they have stopped providing updates for the phone. Hundreds of people have reached out to them on social media to ask them when they're going to send updates (either security updates - currently on the Jan 2017 security level, or Nougat - don't hold your breath). They laid off thousands of US employees who were updating products, and that leaves me with a phone that will (probably) not be updated ever again.
Second, the SOLUTION (for people not afraid of technology): I would only recommend this phone to people who were okay installing a supported version of Android on it. Clearly, staying with the vendor (un)supported OS leaves you vulnerable to security issues, and you won't get updated OS features anymore. If you're willing to install LineageOS (successor to CyanogenMod), you'll have a phone with still-solid hardware and a great battery and a supported OS.
- the tech support phone number for LeEco has been disconnected (or is no longer in service), and their email address doesn't work either. It's official - no support (or 1 year WARRANTY coverage from them, even though that was explicitly included when I bought it).
-I have tried installing LineageOS on it, and I have had difficulty. I was unable to get my recovery tool (TWRP) to install the OS. I'll be trying it again, but just know it's not straightforward.
-My recommendation: MOVE ON. Don't buy this.
- in response to one of the replies to my review, I tried the support number again, and to my surprise, it went through and was answered. I asked two questions: 1. Was the support number disconnected at any time in the past couple of weeks, and I was told that yes, for about 8 business hours (I'm not crazy). 2. I also asked the tech/customer support agent if she had gotten paid, and she said yes.
- I told the customer service rep that my phone shuts down sporadically from about 35% battery remaining on down to 0. I keep having to turn it back on. She said she would send a shipping label, and after they get my phone, they'll send me a new replacement - they do not do repairs, but they can send replacements.
- thank you to V. Zaslavskiy for bringing it to my attention that customer support had worked for him more recently than it had when I tried. Glad they're back! I've edited my rating from 1 to 2 stars and changed the title from "No more vendor support, but has (limited) potential if you intend to install LineageOS on it" to what it is now.
The only downside is the software - the included ROM is admittedly a mess. However, if you do a little bit of research on the XDA forums for this phone, it's very easy to flash a custom ROM. I went with LineageOS and let me tell you this phone runs like Usain Bolt - it's silky smooth and instantaneously responsive. If you don't want to get into flashing, you can just download Nova Launcher from Google Play, and that alone will give you a much improved experience.
This is a phone for informed consumers. You are paying less than $200 when you could easily pay over $600 for a comparable phone from the big names.
When you get this phone (the US LEX727) and if it does not come with EUI 5.8.021s OS or later,(highly unlikely it is later) you will find there is no app drawer and the Live button is where we would normally find the app drawer button and is not movable unless you install the OTA update which will take the OS to EUI 5.8.021s. With this update the Live button can be removed completely from the home screen and you will also have an app drawer. If the OTA update does not work the file can be downloaded.
Please Google Le Pro 3 EUI 5.8.021s update zip. The best is a link to Google drive and the file is 269 mb.
Remember, you only need this file if the OTA does not work and your phone is running an OS lower than 21s.
Copy the file to the internal storage of the phone, not to a folder. Rename the file to Update.zip. Now go to the phone Settings–> System Update and press the menu button.
Now select, choose, Local update and press the button. Just wait for the install to finish then restart the phone.
You can also use a different launcher which many seem to prefer, then no need for the update although there are many improvements to the software.
I have two of these phones, one is still fully sealed in the package. I have unlocked the Boot-loader on the one I am using and installed TWRP. My phone is not rooted and does not need to be to install TWRP or any custom ROMS I have used. I used Minimal ADB and Fastboot to unlock and install TWRP. You will have to search the XDA website, possibly others, for the files to unlock the Boot-loader. The files were taken from the China version of the OS.
My phone is currently running Lineage Android 7.1.2.
I have also tried Omnirom, Resurrection Remix and another China based OS. What I have found if you use these Roms other than the stock or China version:
You will lose Volte. [see Update page bottom], the IR blaster and Dolby Atmos.
I found a Dolby Atmos file which will work however, not a Play Store app. Google LePro 3 Dolby Atmos. I tried all of the files and the only one that worked on my Pro 3 was from the Lenovo. Copy the file to the phone and use TWRP to flash it. The file will be installed as an app in the drawer. Just click on it and enable. To uninstall you will have to copy and flash another file that you will find along with the Dolby files. The files are prefixed “dax”.
The battery life on the stock ROM for me with very light usage was 9-10 days. For heavy to moderate to light users, maybe 1-4 days. I frequently charged the phone after 4 days with the battery showing over 60%. The battery life with Lineage, Omni and Resurrection is now 4-4 ½ days with the same usage and that was after some tweaking and constant Googling of battery issues to eke out the battery life. Estimated screen on time with the stock OS was around 9 hours. With the custom ROM it fell to around 7 hours. You can root the phone to install all sorts of apps or apk’s that need root access to work that may or may not improve battery life, but like many others, I didn’t buy the phone to be an ongoing weekend project.
With the stock ROM I had a strong Wi-Fi signal and strong constant network signal using LTE. With any other ROM except the China version the Wi-Fi signal is strong but the LTE network signal is weak or it is lost altogether. I checked my APN’s and used the Google codes to access the engineer settings. I even flashed another modem which resulted in the loss of sim card detection. The only way back was to install the China version of the OS which re-installed the modem/radio. Back in Lineage I have chosen the LTE/WCDMA option. Oddly if I choose that option, the signal will show 3G for a while, then H+ for another period of time then miraculously, LTE and maintain a reasonable signal strength and consistency. Anyway the signal is good enough.
It is a possibility that with time the standby time and LTE signal will be improved in these Roms but it is clear that the factory ROM is much better optimized for this phone. And that should not be a surprise to anyone really. The developers of the factory ROM had this one model and it’s China, Asia, US variants in their hands and had plenty of time to work on optimization. The custom ROM developers are making a ROM to suit many models and brands from the same base software. They do not have the resources or the time to actually have on hand every phone to perfectly optimize the software.
The benefits of the custom ROMS are timely updates and security patches and no bloatware.
The cons for the factory OS.
There will be no more updates for this phone from Android Marshmallow. LeEco has bombed in the US and the website seems to be Kaput. If you wish to buy the phone then a custom ROM may be the only answer.
I found the first time I enabled the fingerprint sensor it was not terribly accurate.
I tried registering again and this time I held the phone in my hand with the screen facing me and with my finger on the sensor. Then I rolled my finger slightly from side to side and lifting and lowering the finger ever so slightly while keeping the tip on the sensor, not sliding it. Moving too much will result in the sensor not picking up the finger print correctly, but continue until you have registered the print. You will find the sensor is fast and opens virtually every time.
Update: I have downloaded the latest Lineage version for my phone (2017-09-15) and it appears we now have VOLTE. The mobile system settings show "Enhanced 4G LTE Mode" with this explanatory note. "Use Lte services to improve voice and other communications (recommended). I haven't actually tried the phone with the new option, but the developers at Lineage deserve a round of applause for adding it.
