Design: The Le Max2 features a full metal unibody design with chamfered edges and Qualcomm s Sense ID 3D ultrasonic fingerprint scanner at the back for biometric authentication. It can scan fingerprints even if you fingers are wet and sweaty. The Mi 5 features a unibody design, metal frame and a 2.5D curved glass on the front and back, which adds an aesthetic appeal to it. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the front, which is embedded inside the home button. The Honor 7, on the other hand, also features a unibody metal design and fingerprint scanner located at the back, just below the camera module.

Display: LeEco s Le Max2 is equipped with a 5.7-inch QHD IPS LCD display running at a resolution of 2560x1440pixels, pixel density of 515ppi and maximum brightness of 450nits. The Honor 7 sports a 5.2-inch full HD (1080p) IPS-NEO LCD display with pixel density of 424ppi, whereas the Mi 5 is equipped with a 5.15-inch full HD (1080p) IPS LCD display with pixel density of 428ppi and maximum brightness of 600-nits. Clearly, the Le Max2 has a much superior display in terms of resolution.

Chipset, RAM and storage: The Le Max2 is powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset clocked at 2.15GHz, Adreno 530 GPU and features either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, depending on the storage variant that you choose. The Mi 5 is also powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM and Adreno 530 GPU. The Honor 7, on the other hand, is powered by Huawei s HiSilicon Kirin 935 octa-core chipset paired with Mali-T628 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

On the storage front, the Le Max2 will be offered in 32GB and 64GB variants, whereas the Mi 5 is offered in 32GB onboard storage. Unfortunately, both handsets lack an expandable storage option. The Honor 7 comes with 16GB onboard storage and a microSD card slot that accepts cards up to 128GB.

Cameras: In the photography department, the Le Max2 sports a 21-megapixel rear snapper of aperture f/2.0, PDAF and optical image stabilization (OIS). Up front is an 8-megapixel front-facing camera of aperture f/2.2 for selfies and video calling. The Mi 5 sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS, aperture f/2.0 and 4-axis stabilization, and a 4-megpaixel selfie camera of aperture f/2.0. The Honor 7 comes equipped with a 20-megapixel rear camera of aperture f/2.0 and PDAF, but lacks OIS. Up front is an 8-megpaixel selfie camera of aperture f/2.4. While the Mi 5 and Le Max2 supports 4K video recording, it is missing in the Honor 7.

Battery and connectivity: While the Mi 5 has a 3,000mAh battery, the Honor 7 and Le Max2 is armed with 3,100mAh battery. The Mi 5 and Le Max2 also support fast charging feature. On the connectivity front, you get 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth and GPS on all three devices. The Mi 5 and Le Max2 also get the USB Type-C reversible connector and VoLTE support.

One of the key highlights of the USB Type-C port on the Le Max2 is that it also works as an audio output port with CDLA (Continual Digital Loseless Audio) technology, which the company claims to offer high-quality uncompressed audio listening experience. LeEco has also ditched the traditional 3.5mm audio jack in favour of the USB Type-C port.

Operating system: The Mi 5 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop-based MIUI 7 and an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8 update is also around the corner. The Honor 7 also runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS based on Emotion UI. The LeMax2, on the other hand, runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based EUI 5.5 OS.

On paper, the LeEco Le Max2 has clear advantage over the competition in terms of specifications and content services package that it is offering. However, we will only pass on our final verdict when we review the phablet.
