LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite (X722) Review


LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite a.k.a. LeEco X722 is a specific modification of the Le Pro 3 model a.k.a. LeEco X720. Despite the Elite moniker, it is actually a slightly downgraded version of the X720, but for the most part, the two models are identical. They feature LeEco's signature design, pack advanced hardware and still offer one of the best price/quality ratio on the smartphone market. The main differences between the two models are that the Elite is based on Snapdragon 820 instead 821 and does not support NFC. Following is our in-depth review of Le Pro 3 Elite.

What's in the box

LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite arrives in a stylish black rectangular box with the company's logo on top of the lid. Inside, the smartphone is placed in the left compartment and below it, there's an envelope with the standard documentation and SIM tray pin. The envelope covers a small hole, which houses the headphone adapter. To the right of the smartphone, there are two smaller compartments with a lid. One is for the USB Type-C cable and the other one is for the 24W quick charger. It has two flat pins as per the US standard for electric sockets, so if you reside elsewhere, you will need a socket adapter.
