Just going to post my experience here for those who might be on the fence. First - I am USA based, T-Mobile customer in a network region with ALL of T-mobiles let bands including 12.

Second a setup - I came from a Galaxy S7 but after breaking two of them in a two week period (ouch) and paying out almost $400 in insurance deductibles (and being told I'm not insurance for at least 12 months) I opted NOT to keep the last S7 I got and instead sold it and cashed out of my EIP. I initially went for the Moto G4 from Amazon (with ads) and found it to be a good "all around" phone but it had a terrible camera. we have a toddler and we constantly take pictures with our phones. I wasn't expecting an S7 range camera for $150 but the camera was simply not going to work so I went back to the drawing board. I was on the fence with either a One Plus 3 or the Axon that everyone is going crazy for now, both at $400 but I stumbled across the Le Max 2 around the same time and it piqued my interest. I paid $250. I was mainly drawn in by the promises of Snapdragon 820 (the slower Moto G4 was acceptable but I certainly missed the speed), the camera with an OIS and PDAF which were both sorely lacking in the Moto G4. I don't really care about having expandable memory since we use amazon cloud services so I don't keep media on the phone and with unlimited data plan I don't ever download any videos either I just stream netflix and various content so the 32gb was not a concern.

So yes, it's a blazing fast super hi rez display phone. If you don't like EUI there is *limited* custom firmware/OS support out there, an unofficial CM13 build exists but it breaks somethings and honestly if you just slap your own launcher (I use google now) you get rid of 90% of the EUI and really only see it in the notification tray and app switcher which is easy enough to get used to. There are actually some really nice features of EUI such as incredibly granular permission settings and power management that are super easy to use. After about 2 weeks I was no longer bothered by the EUI and grew to like some of it's "features".

Performance - no different from an S7 in day to day use. Same chipset, same resolution, so your not going to see much variation here.

Size - Yes, it's a phablet and doesn't have a lot of "one handed" tweaks that you see in the Note series, but its still manageable.

Battery - All day without issue for me, also supports quick charge.

****FINGER PRINT SENSOR****** - I would not buy this phone if you CARE about fingerprint sensors. My phone like many peoples has a dead sensor that died after about a week of use. This is showing up in enough forums and from enough users to make me believe Qualcom had a bad batch of sensors and the odds of you getting a phone with one that dies is high. Le Max will service it but have fun sending your phone back to China and waiting weeks and weeks. Long story short if you MUST have a fingerprint sensor I would honestly take this phone off your shopping list. I can live with it and while I liked it (it was ridiculously fast and accurate, even worked while fingers were wet or dirty), if y ou ask ed me if I thought the price was still fair for this phone minus the finger print sensor I would say YES but that my opinion and you might feel differently. Before anyone asks its not software based, I have done many wipes, reinstalls, tried all the trouble shooting le max had to offer and was simply told dos end it in for hardware repair if I cared to.

Camera - It's ridiculously good for a $250 phone. It crushes the moto g4. It's not an S7, for low light photos it's nowhere close to an S7 (but really what is?). If anything I would say it's almost as good as my older S6 and goes toe to toe with an iPhone 6 (but not perhaps the 6+). The OIS helps with video a great deal. It focuses fast, and after they firmware got updated a lot of the early complains got fixed (it would previously drop focus or simply not re-lock etc.). Again for $250 this takes photos just as good as I've seen come out of the One Plus 3 or Axon (I would argue subjectively it has a slight edge on the One Plus).

Warranty - your kidding right? It's a phone made for china and your buying it for USA use. If you care at all about warranty do not buy this phone, just stop.

Construction - Ignoring the defective finger print sensors (which I blame qualcomm for honestly) this device is well made. Everyone things I have an iPhone + of some sort. All metal, the front does not have a rolled edge (2.5d) glass so that feels a bit surprising at first but its not a big deal. All the cut outs and grills are really clean. Again this does NOT feel like a $250 device. I've yet to see anything from Le Max that directly confirms if this has tempered glass screen (gorilla or dragon), a lot of folks say it has Gorilla 3 based on them using that in other phones but I have not see anywhere that Le Eco themselves has said the Max 2 has similar. I just put a tempered glass protector on mine and will treat it as if it's not just for safety sake.

Carrier Support - Tmobile Full LTE band support is in, WiFi Calling is out. Sim swapped with my wifes iPhone to test overall consistency and it had no issues with reception or speeds in comparison to the iPhone in the same location at the same times.

Other Stuff I can think of - IR port is there for those of you who like to use it for your TV. The lack of a headphone jack might bother some (I'm a bluetooth exclusive user anyways). Usb Type C is nice so long as you don't mind having to buy new cables (or already have them). Case selection is incredibly mediocre.

Software Suport - Surprisingly good. Le Eco has rolled out 3 or 4 major updates so far and each one has also included the latest android security up date. Say what you want about them but the Le Max has gotten lots of love in this regard, can't say if it will continue or for how long but again this phone costs $250... If you want to say how much better a One +3 is thats fine, but it's also not a $250 phone. You have to evaluate this against it's price point peers because some people don't want a $400 phone regardless of how much better it is and for those folks this phone is a god damn steal.
Band 12 is important for signal reach in areas where T-Mobile holds a license to use it, but it is the SLOWEST of all 3 bands they use. Band 4 is the primary LTE band, while band 2 and 12 are secondary in terms of total potential speed.

Screw GearBest. I have ordered from them twice. Takes 2 weeks to ship out and then weeks for shipping. Fake product reviews. There are other/better Chinese sites to give my money to.

Only pink ("rose gold") color available, otherwise beastly hardware for the price. No microSD support so buy whatever capacity you need for the future. The 32 GB base model seems to be heavily discounted to get people into the brand, the larger capacity models are not nearly as attractive pricing wise.

Yes. Bands 4, 2 and 12 are supported. Those are all 3 bands used by T-Mobile in various combinations.

I knew it...

Also, what makes this phone better than other SD 820 phones in the same price range?

no, sprint wouldn't allow this device on their network even if it has the supported bands. ZTE can't even get them to whitelist the axon 7.
