There's something to be said for checking the big boxes in a phone that costs no more than $400, and that's what the Le Pro3 from LeEco does. It doesn't have all of the specs you get in a flagship phone, but it has a lot of the big ones that people are looking for. The Le S3, even at $249 retail, has plenty of the big specs as well, cutting back strategically in some areas to make the price point reasonable.
