Design and Build

Question: How is the LeEco Le Max2 design?

Answer: Thankfully LeEco has chosen to opt for a smaller display size with the second generation Max. The phone now has a more manageable form factor. Like the Le 2, it also features a full metal body with two antenna strips running around the back. The Le Max2 has curved edges to ensure handy grip. The camera is slightly protruded out of the body which was also the case in the original Le Max. Overall, in comparison to earlier Le Max, it has become more compact, more manageable, and feels better.

One thing which is missing in Le Max2 is the 3.5mm audio jack. LeEco has bid adieu to 3.5mm pothole and has embraced its proprietary CDLA technology which uses USB Type –C port to deliver high-quality lossless audio.
