Remember the P5,229 (roughly $102) deca-core phone we found on Lazada Philippines three weeks ago? Well, it’s back — and with an even lower price tag.

The LeEco Le S3 now costs P4,999 ($97), P230 ($5) cheaper than the last time. It’s a great deal for a smartphone that is rocking a Helio X20 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a metal body.

You’ll also get a 5.5-inch full-HD screen, a 21-megapixel camera on the back, an 8-megapixel camera up front, a fingerprint scanner, and a USB-C port. The battery is 3,000mAh, and if you need to juice it up, you can be grateful that you don’t have to plug the Le S3 in for hours to get a full charge, as it supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. What’s more, the device is bundled with a fast charger.

However, as with many things cheap, the LeEco Le S3 comes with caveats. First, you will have to make do with Android 6.0 Marshmallow; it’s likely that the device will not get an OS update. Second, the memory is not expandable. Third, it has ditched the headphone jack. And fourth, if the device breaks down, it will be hard to have it serviced here because China’s LeEco does not have an official presence in the Philippines.

Weigh the pros and cons well before making a decision. If you can accept the disadvantages, then go ahead and click “Add to Cart” before the deal on Lazada disappears. Happy shopping!
