Le Max Review

As the name suggests, the Le Max is one large phone. Actually, it is a bit too large. Large enough to rule out a lot of users with smaller hands. At 6.33-inches, it is a phablet in every sense and that shows in the 204 gram weight too. It is also a full bodied smartphone with a fingerprint scanner, a large battery and an excellent screen.

The phone has a really good 2K screen which shines through, especially at night. There is also an excess of real estate on the screen, making the icons look small. It is ideal for those who like to read a lot on their phones.

The overall build quality is good and the phone seems like something that can last, at least on the hardware front. Like with LG phones, the fingerprint scanner is at the back under the camera and this is a more natural place to have this security feature.

Like the Qiku Q Terra, this phone has a lot of Chinese still hidden away inside the UI. So you will encounter message and alerts you can’t make head or tail out of quite often.

The alter ego of the camera comes in the negatives. In low light, the camera throws up oversaturated images that lack detail. We guess a software upgrade will be due before the final version comes to India.

The battery is not all that great despite the size and we found the phone dropped at least 25 percentage battery overnight, with just the Wi-Fi on and no SIM inserted. This could again be a software quirk.

Buy this phone if you really need that extra screen size, which is becoming increasingly hard these days. This would have been a much better phone at a price under Rs 25,000.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
