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

Tom's Guide

Stylish & speedy, but lacks battery life

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

from Digital Trends
Should you buy it? Probably not. If you’re looking for the best phone under $250, the Le S3 is a good deal. Its only real downside is software — eUI isn’t pleasant to use and LeEco is unlikely to push timely software version updates to the device. We recommend you consider the Moto G4 Plus instead for up-to-date software that’s not bogged down with pointless services. Another alternative for those who want a metal phone and don’t mind a little bit of software meddling is the Honor 6X... Full review

Affordable, fast, premium build

from PC Magazine
The unlocked LeEco Le S3 balances a premium build, powerful performance, and unique features with an affordable price, making it a solid buy as long as you can look past its heavy-handed Android layer... Full review
Talk Android

The budget phone that leaves you wanting more

from Talk Android
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

Cheap but forgettable

from Cnet
The LeEco Le S3 is a decent budget phone, but the Motorola G4 Plus is better... Full review
