Conclusion

At this price point, Le Max definitely seems a bit overprized as we have smartphones that offer such performance and features in lesser price and LeTV still in a phase where it has to prove a mark and convince the users to go for their smartphones. I do not doubt on the overall performance and offer that Le Max offers but still, it should have been priced a little lesser than this to catch all the attention of the Indian buyers. For those who love using their smartphones to the fullest and want to opt for a bigger screen size, it is a great option and it will not disappoint you once you buy it.
