Full Specifications Comparison: LeEco Le 2 Vs Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
Build Quality and Design
These days when we are in search of new smartphone design plays an important role in it. They don’t want a flat box with big hardware specs. They prefer the more attractive design and good build quality. Both the phones have a premium metal build which looks great. LeEco Le 2 comes with more slim design and mirror-finished fingerprint sensor at the back which looks more attractive, comparing to than the Redmi Note 3. Le 2 is also a bit light weight than Redmi Note 3.
As we come to the left side of both the devices, they both has power lock key as well as volume control buttons with a good metallic finish on it. These buttons provide proper tactile feel while you press them continuously.
At the bottom of both the devices ,Le 2 comes with a Type-C charging port, Loud Speaker and mic as well. Whereas Redmi Note 3 has Normal Charging Port with no fast charging and no fast data transfer as well. Where as here Le 2 again take a lead, as you get the ability of fast charging as well as you can listen high-quality lossless audio from that USB Type-c Port as it also supports CDLA, which is arguably more future proof.

Le 2 is has a Dual SIM tray on the left side, yes it is not having any hybrid tray you can’t add SD card to it. But where as in Redmi Note 3 you will get a hybrid tray in which you can add 2 sims or 1 sim + Sd card. So here Redmi Note 3 comes in leads in terms of storage capacity.
Now when we see the top of both the phones, you may find something missing in Le 2. As Le 2 doesn’t have 3.5mm jack, yes LeEco is the World’s first company to launch CDLA technology which can help you to listen lossless high quality of music. Some people may not prefer that phone which doesn’t have traditional 3.5mm jack but you will get a Type-C to 3.5mm port adaptor in the box. Another than this both comes with IR blaster on the top which works fine, but on Le 2 it is much easy to connect with other Devices like even AC (Air-conditioner works)

Performance & Speed Test
The Performance of any smartphone depends on processor installed in that smartphone. The Le 2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 MSM8976 which is more powerful then Redmi Note 3 Snapdragon 650 chipset. In the case of performance Le 2 takes the lead as it comes with a better processor. But the real performance and speed of the handset depend on the OS which it is running. Xiaomi MIUI is very smooth and fast in terms of memory management and optimizations whereas LeEco is working hard on their eUI to be the best in the market. They are giving additional services which they are calling Le Membership worth Rs 4,900 for Free in which you can watch premium movies, Live TV shows for Free. As well as currently they are planning to give 5TB of Free Cloud Storage on their server calling it as LeCloud. This will be the game changing offer as no one in the market giving such huge amount of cloud data storage.
Both the the Devices are coming with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage. (We doesn’t testing Redmi Note 3 2GB RAM Version) .In addition, Redmi Note 3 can increase their memory by installing a Memory Card in it where as in Le 2 you are limited to the 32GB version.

On the basis of Testing both the phones, we can easily state some things, like in design point of view Le 2 is better, when it comes to performance again Le 2 is Better, Camera quality is quite similar and when it comes to battery Redmi Note 3 is still better the Le 2. But the question is which smartphone should you buy ?
