LeEco (LeTV) is a new Chinese brand to me, but they have been around for a while. And the LeEco LE2 (Le X620) is one of the first mobiles to ship with the new MediaTek MTK6797 chipset. Also known as the Helio X20. So what’s special about it? Well, it has a crazy decacore CPU, yes a ten core CPU, a Mali T880 GPU and this mobile is only around the 200 euro mark ($220 US) with a full metal body, 1080p screen, 16MP rear camera and type-c port. I got this LE 2 from TinyDeal here for $226

My last mobile review for a while. More on the Tbook 10, Cube iwork12 asap. (It’s nice to have a break from so many Z8300 devices!)
