LeEco Le Pro3 and Le S3 coming to Amazon, Best Buy and Target, free DirecTV Now included
LeEco, the Chinese company that hopes to crack the US smartphone market (but may already have difficulties doing so), today announced that it's partnered with major US retailers to sell its products.

Starting December 1, LeEco's Le Pro3 and Le S3 smartphones will be available unlocked via Amazon, Target, and Best Buy (both online, and in stores). Moreover, as of today, the two phones can be ordered at any time from LeMall.com, the company's own online store. Previously, the handsets were offered only during 1-day flash sales.

From now and until January 5, 2017, buyers of the LeEco Le Pro3 and Le S3 phones will get a free 3-month subscription to AT&T's brand new DirecTV Now streaming service. Some of LeEco's TVs, including the Super4 X Series and uMax models, will also come with free access to DirecTV Now.

Officially released in the US in early November, the LeEco Le Pro3 and Le S3 are 5.5-inch metal-made smartphones that run a customized version of Android 6 Marshmallow. The Le Pro3 is powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor and costs $399, while the Le S3 uses a Snapdragon 652 CPU and costs $249. 

Care to buy any of LeEco's handsets, now that they'll be widely available while including a few months of free DirecTV Now?

nice looking phone but you didn't state enough of the specs for this to be a complete article

It's an article about availability and points of purchase. It contains all the information it needs to. Everything else can be found easily through linked content.

They could have easily cut and pasted the specs into this article

Are they supposed to do that with every article about every device? Every mention of the S7 needs the full specs? The iPhone 7? The OnePlus 3T? The information isn't relevant to the article and is easily found.

They started to mention the specs if you notice they just did half ass job. Only mentioning screen size and chipset

GSMArena.com for specs and proper reviews. phonearena.com for articles and occasional LOL contents.

Nice to see the expansion to retail. I have both phones and have been happy with performance vs. price.

Watched AA's review on the Pro3.....not very impressed. Camera is garbage, software is hot garbage, and support is burning garbage. s**t tier all around......but I get why people root for companies like these. Anything to save a buck, right dudes? Who cares if they haven't updated their phones.....its cheap! Who cares if the camera is ass.....it's affordable! Who cares if the software makes you physically ill.... it's a steal! Who cares if they're running LeEco into the ground because they spread themselves wider than prostitute legs.....it's a bargain! And people winder why they say "You get what you pay for." after a deal comes up. Spec game on point........everything else is to the rear.

other than higher res screen and better speakers, OnePlus 3 is definitely a better overall package than Pro3.

Great devices for the price. Just replace the native launcher with Apex, and you are on your way. Two things I find annoying, you can't change the color of the notification light, and two, the multi, back buttons are in reverse order.

This article must have been written by an iphone user due he/she only mentioning screen size and chip set.

Nice to hear that they're going retail -- should make accessories easier to come by instead of relying on LeMall, eBay, etc. I bought a S3 for my son and a Pro 3 for myself and we're both enjoying them. The EUI is easily fixed with Nova Launcher or some other launcher. Sound is great, nice screen, smooth and responsive movement and apps. Great build quality and battery life. Camera isn't anything great but I don't own a phone for photo taking so that's not really an issue for me. Others might find it more of a sticking point. Mine had a system update waiting for me out of the box and they're planning on upgrading to Nougat in early 2017. Was originally planning on buying a OnePlus 3 but they discontinued the 3 for the 3T and that was $180 more than the Pro 3 (weekend sale/coupons) and nothing about the 3T was $180 better than the LeEco phone. Now that I've had the Pro 3 to test it, I have no regrets.
