I bought this phone from US last year for $300USD, and have been using this phone for almost a year now and I am very happy with the purchase.
It's a great value phone, offering amazing bang for your buck. Initially when they launched the phones, I had problems with some of the delayed notifications (e.g. from WhatsApp, messages etc) but I found out Leeco phones have extra customization options like sleep mode etc, to save battery that had been causing those issues. Some quick settings and all of those issues got sorted out. Leeco has it's own entertainment environment with quite ugly GUI by default. So I changed my launcher to get rid of that problem as well. Phone camera is good for taking photos in the sun and good light. In low light, photos are just okay. It's a nice looking phone with very good display, of course it doesn't have the thinnest bezels in the world, or edge to edge to display but for $200USD it will be hard to find a comparable phone.

All in all, for me all the Cons were way outweighed by the Pros and it's small price. I never found the phone lacking in performance. Coming from Galaxy S7, the only thing I noticed was the camera performance, but that again only in low light, and that's a small price to pay for the money I saved.

Pros:
Fast charging. Very good battery life. Perfect location & responsive fingerprint sensor (coming from Galaxy S7, that was a big plus for me), very customizeable UI. Comes with the perfectly fit transparent phone cover and a screen protector. And most definitely PRICE!

Cons:
No audio jack. Okay camera in low light (compared to top tiered phones). Comes with Android M

Just be careful. This company is having extreme financial difficulties and assets are frozen. This means support, warranty and future updates might be unlikely.

Easy to root and XDA ROM support is solid. The camera becomes much improved with the modified Google Camera APKs from Pixel. With strong loonie, this is a good deal.

I don't know if I'd spend nearly $300 CAD on an LeEco phone. I mean, the Pro 3 Elite from Banggood was $134 USD with coupon (now 164 USD with coupon + even lower with TopCashBack), and it's got the 820. That's a steal. At this price? Not so much, especially considering that the company's gone bankrupt and has stopped supporting its phones. Also, you have to root it to get updates because it's still stuck on MM. If you absolutely need a flagship phone right at this moment, I guess it's an okay deal. But you're better off waiting until Black Friday.

Got the cheaper LeEco for $140, and after two weeks it just stopped charging. Tons of reviews describing the same issue. Not a quality company, but you may luck out.

Really? Mind sharing the listing? I checked the Amazon listing + camel camel camel for price history but the phone has always been $199 at its lowest. Also sold by a third-party. The Le S3 with the Snapdragon 652 is $138 USD, though.

One thing to note is that LePro 3 in this thread is compatible with Freedom/Wind, the other (Banggood) is not (also I believe this one is snapdragon 821 vs the other is 820).
