    This Chinese company made headlines by buying Vizio earlier this year. Now they will be making some more headlines by continuing to spread their brand. You can check out more info on LeEco here.

    They're supposedly launching into the US with this event and have a wide range of products. I was reading an article on them today. Interesting. They started as a video streaming service.

    I fell asleep. I don't do well with press conferences unless it is short and to the point. @Jonny Kansas was in the YT chat chatting away so I am sure he paid better attention.

    Spent more time chatting in there than I did paying attention. I think it's great that they have partners behind them, but I don't get why they brought some of them up. Even the guy from Vice seemed confused as to what to do after he was done talking.

    Just introduce the company, which I could actually skip, and then the products.

    The phone looks like a nice device. Price is insanely reasonable for the specs, imo.

    I did speak with some folks in the chat that've used LeEco devices and they said their UI is pretty much garbage, though consensus was that it's still better than Huawei's flavor of android.

    Also, I only watched through the phone presentation. The electric bike and car, while cool concepts, don't really grab me as something that I might be purchasing any time soon.

    So they will need to rely on devs, hopefully it can be unlocked and rooted easily. With that said, I would rather pay a little more for a phone that is good both in hardware and in software vs skim and get a cheaper phone that is great in hardware but the software get in the way.

    According to a guy in the chat during the stream, the source code has already been released, so that may not be a big deal.
