  1. Nice to see Le Eco phones on the list. Many friends of mine have been waiting for rom support with that phone. How stable is it? Any users?

    1. Sadly Le Eco is withdrawing from India …. Too many complaints and the company itself seems to be going through a lot of problems …the phones were really good and its sad to see them leave so soon…

    2. They are continuing to provide software support. Appreciate that.

    3. Yeah…I really don’t know where they went wrong.The company offered really good specs at decent prices.I remember when all my friends could talk about was the amazing specs and the prices.I did read earlier that they spent too much and failed at entering the US market…

    4. As far as I’ve seen, the le phones haven’t had any complaints from users I know personally. Something somewhere must have gone wrong horribly. Kudos to them for trying.

    5. They should’ve waited IMO to get recognized by many before going into the US market that’s probably where they went wrong.

    6. Maybe. We’ll never know what led them to pull back or what really plagued the company with such dire circumstances. We can only speculate like this. The market is vicious and merciless. Not all of em survive.

    7. Yeah..you’re right my best guess is they extinguished most of their resources in trying to get into the market by advertisements …but as you said we can only speculate and we’ll never know what exactly happened

    8. Actually their advertising wasn’t all that agressive. Relative to the other phone manufacturers. Atleast in the conventional circles. Maybe they had aggressive marketing in circles I’ve not come across. I dono. Either ways, kudos to letv for trying to make it and failing gracefully. They have my respect

    9. Well I have a feeling they might try to make a comeback after a while .They simply don’t deserve what happened.I was a bit shocked when I heard the news ….I really hope they do make a come back and when they do leave the mid range shocked 😀 really sad how bad things happen to good people …the last time this happened it was Nokia but they’re back with the Nokia 6 😀
