LeEco Le 2 vs. YU Yunicorn Differences

  • The major difference is with the processor, where it seems like the LeEco Le 2 is a step ahead, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor compared to the MediaTek Helio P10 chipset present on the Yunicorn.
  • While the LeEco Le 2 has no storage expansion, the YU Yunicorn offers the MicroSD card slot for the storage expansion, which is very helpful when the available storage is not enough.
  • The LeEco Le 2 supports 4K video recording with the rear camera while the YU Yunicorn can capture only 1080p videos at max.
  • The rear camera is different on both. The Le 2 offers a 16-megapixel camera while the Yunicorn has a 13-megapixel camera.
  • While the YU Yunicorn has a 5-megapixel camera on the front, the Le 2 has an upgraded 8-megapixel camera, which is better for selfies.
  • The RAM offered in YU Yunicorn is 4GB compared to the 3GB RAM on Le 2.
  • The Le 2 is said to have the Le SuperCharge fast charging feature, while there is no fast charging available on the Note 3.
  • There is USB Type-C connectivity on the Le 2 while it is the standard MicroUSB connectivity on the phone from YU.
  • The Yunicorn still runs Android 5.1 Lollipop based AOS (Android on Steroids) ROM, while the LeEco Le 2 runs EUI based on Android Marshmallow, the latest stable OS from Android.

What differences are really important?

  • Firstly, the fast charging is important and is seen on the Le 2, but then, the battery capacity and life is much better on the YU Yunicorn with the 4000 mAh battery.
  • Another important difference is with the selfie camera, where LeEco takes the lead with an 8-megapixel camera on the front.
  • Also, the 4K video recording is a feature one would want for future-proof videos when good quality TVs are available but the content has to be there too.
  • Storage expansion is another important difference because users just cannot always think of storage woes. A MicroSD storage expansion always helps and it is available on the YU Yunicorn.

So, which is the better phone?

It is not easy to pick the winner among the two because each of them excel in their own field. Not to forget, LeEco offers 1 year of LeEco membership to the buyers, and on the other hand, YU Yunicorn has the Around Platform with several services included. But talking about the main points that you might consider, go with Le 2 for the cameras, but with Yunicorn for the battery.

Still, we’ve put up all the points above so you can get a better understanding of it. Good luck choosing the one for you.
