Both are encased in aluminum, but the LePro 3, right, has the fancier brushed finish.

That isn't all the Le Pro3 has -- its specs also outstrip the Le S3, and it costs a little more, too.

Both phones share a fingerprint reader on the back.

They both have a USB Type-C charging jack and stereo speakers.

But it's the LePro 3 with the faster processor -- Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 -- and an enormous 4,070mAh battery.

LeEco made its name in China with Netflix-like content. It brings English-language shows to Le Pro3 and S3 users in an app called Live.

You won't pull down from the top to get to quick-access toggles. Instead, press the left-most soft button (the one shaped like a square).
