LeEco’s Le S3 would’ve been a homerun if it weren’t for that pesky software.

Stylish & speedy, but lacks battery life
Sam Rutherford from Tom's Guide ()
Like the Le Pro 3, LeEco’s other recent U.S. arrival, the Le S3 is a bit of a disappointment because this budget phone could have been so much better. It has a lot of fantastic elements, including an unexpectedly good screen, a forward-thinking USB-C port and performance that's better than a $200 price tag would suggest. And, despite being a bit boxy, the Le S3 looks great, too. It even features capacitive touch buttons for people who hate cluttering up their display with on-screen navigation icons... Full review
Would be the ultimate $250 phone if it weren’t for the software

Should you buy it? Probably not. If you’re looking for the best phone under $250, the Le S3 is a good deal.

We recommend you consider the Moto G4 Plus instead for up-to-date software that’s not bogged down with pointless services.

When it comes down to it, all the Le S3 really is is a lower-end version of the Le Pro 3. It has essentially the same body and construction, but less powerful hardware. Despite that, the Le S3 is still fast and can handle anything you need it to. It still has some shortcomings. For example, the camera could be a lot better, as it’s pretty subpar for what it is. Still, for $250, you’re getting a truly quality product that’s difficult to complain about. At that price, LeEco is really setting the tone for what a budget phone should look like... Full review
