LeTV Le 1s
LeTV Le 1s is a budget smartphone from a Chinese company LeTV. LeTV has recently started selling its products internationally.
The phones body is made of aluminum , has smooth edges and a lustrous finishing. Even display is very attractive as it goes all the way to the edges , which makes the device look even more beautiful.
It weighs 169 g and the dimensions are 151.1 x 74.2 x 7.5 mm . For now, the device is only available in golden color.
The device has a 5.5-inch , 1920×1080 IPS LCD with Gorilla Glass 3 , with approximately zero bezels. We can also change the color mode through the settings to one of the four available options.
Camera and battery life:
The 1s has a 13-megapixel shooter on the back and an 8-megapixel camera on the front , but neither of them is satisfactory when compared with other brands , low light images by the device are really poor, even while dealing with a wide range of colors the camera tends to blend some colors and hence no finer details can be seen.
This phone is powered by 3000 mAh Li-Po battery , although the exact standby and talk time duration’s aren’t know the battery seems to be quite promising.The phone comes with a fast charger, charging the phone from 0 to 100% in about 90 minutes.
The OS the phone uses is Android 5.1 (Lollipop), with LeTV custom UI that is very much inspired from iOS. The custom UI has thus changed pretty much everything and no traces of the original lollipop UI are available. The launcher is the usual iOS style affair we see on Chinese brands, with all the app icons on the homescreen (Xiaomi is another example where all the app icons are on the homescreen).
Performance and Hardware :
The 1s has a 2.2 GHz Octa-Core Mediatek Helio X10 Processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage (non-expandable). Le1s is dual SIM phone, and supports LTE(4G), along with Wi-Fi , Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS.
The performance of the phone is quite satisfactory, it switches apps quite smoothly and its Octa-Core processor is a treat for all those who love to play high end graphic games on their phones.
The best part about this device is that, it is the only device in its price category that supports a fingerprint scanner.
Hence if you are looking for a budget smartphone, you must consider this device .
