The deal is back! I bought one last time around about 3 weeks ago, the bootloader unlocking
process isn't as simple as it used to be, but still doable. I flashed Lineage OS and it works like a charm. I get more than 2 days of light to moderate usage with battery to spare at the end of the 2nd night.

Used this guide to unlock bootloader: https://forum.xda-developers.com/...k-t3500388

LeEco out of business and I wouldn't pay $19 for this phone let alone $199. SOL on warranty etc just not worth it at that price.

I have this phone. Everything is great about it but it has 1 major flaw. I do not get all of my text messages, alarms, emails coming through properly. It is like the phone is more worried about saving battery life than communication......

Lol. This deal never went away? It has been this price on Amazon for several weeks now. I have been watching incoming reviews, trying to decide whether to pull the trigger.

I just checked the specs. At least in terms of CPU it is not. The Elite has the SD 820. This one has the 821. Doubt it makes that much difference though.

If you are somewhat handy and flashing, this phone with Lineage OS is awesome. For $200 I don't think there's a better choice in terms of specs.

I ordered this recently but returned it for several reasons. It's a high end very good quality phone made by a badly mismanaged company.

Biggest problem is the operating system if only Leeco supported the US version still. The big LE logo/button on the front is 2nd worst thing -it severely ruins the style of the phone. Also it's gold -although not ridiculously gold -most people would probably still want a case for this phone. Maybe if you rooted it and installed lineage OS it would be worth it but its not really a simple process and I can see a lot of people messing it up. This should and probably will go down to 99-129 price. I wouldn't buy it at all unless you plan on installing a custom rom.

Huawei Honor 6X is a better overall phone with less serious drawbacks, screen looks a lot better -more vibrant, OS seems nicer and better optimized even though it has a much less powerful processor. Only downside is the edge of the phone is too thin to hold for watching video-easy to drop this phone. The style is very generic but if you put a case on it problem solved.

That being said I didn't keep the Honor 6X either because Metropcs $100 port in credit was a better deal overall.

I had the one down from this, the S3 and I wasn't getting all my texts either. I really wanted to like it because it felt so nice and was quick, but that made it a deal breaker. That and the poor battery life.

This phone should be $99. Dead company. At $200, I'd wait a little longer on a V20, or go out and buy a G5S plus

Huawei company is also a mess. Just read any of the complaint pages online about it. Getting repairs fixed on warranty is a nightmare. The service department is more like to break the phone than fix it.
