LeEco Le 1S review
Let Check out the LeEco Le 1S Review with Detail now LeEco has been the latest entrant from China into the Indian smartphone market. Compared to the Xiaomi in most of the Chinese press conferences and the like, LeEco has been attempting to fill in the shoes of the earlier entrants from across the border. Let us find out what this device holds for us.
Looks and Design
Given the price tag, the device is quite premium in its looks. It comes with a full metal unibody. In fact, this is the first ever smartphone to bring unibody design to the budget segment. In spite of using metal for its front and back, it weighs just 170 grams.
The design on the front is quite minimal. The capacitive navigation buttons are backlit. Bottom the phone is the home for 3.5 mm audio jack along with IR blaster. The IR blaster is used to make use of the smartphone as a remote control along with the app.
The LeEco 1S has a USB Type-C port at the bottom.
LeEco Le 1S review on Display
LeEco 1S has a 5.5 inch full HD display. But, it has an inherent issue with direct sunlight. The experience does not seem to be that great. However, you get a good combination of colors and sharpness.
The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The display does look quite good both indoors and outdoors, except when used under direct sunlight. Color reproduction looks a little saturated, but it can be tweaked using the settings provided by the software. You have different modes like Vivid, LeTV, Soft and Natural.
The pixel density reads 403 ppi. There was not much pixelation observed. Viewing angles too are impressive enough. Watching videos on the phone would not be an issue.
LeEco Le 1S review on Hardware and performance
Le 1S is powered by Helio X10 processor. The phone does not stutter much even when the processor is not well known enough. It gives you a smoother experience – it even betters Asus Zenfone 2 or Xiaomi Mi4i. The Octa core processor from MediaTek performs quite well enough.
However, graphics are not as smooth. Of course, you can play any game as you would please. But, the experience is not as you would expect from your device.
The fingerprint scanner is one of greatest points on your device. It works quite smooth. The scanner can also be used as a camera shutter button. The device is powered by MediaTek processor that runs at 2.2 GHz. The graphics are handled by PowerVR G6200 GPU. The 32 GB internal storage, coupled with a 3 GB RAM offers you a good experience. However, you will not be able to expand the memory beyond the 32 GB.
With maximum settings set, the phone heats up a little while playing games. Though the heating up is not abnormal, it is noticeable. The heat issues are more clearly noticed when shooting in bright sunlight.
LeEco Le 1S review on Camera
LeEco 1S comes with a 13 MP rear snapper. The performance of the camera is quite good considering the price you pay for it. Neither exemplary nor lackluster, but the camera works quite perfectly most of the times. The camera consists of an ISOCELL sensor coupled with a single LED flash. It also comes with a f/2.0 aperture that lets more light into the camera.
The front camera reads 5 MP in resolution. It comes with a Samsung S5K5E2 that comes with an 85-degree wide angle lens.
Shots taken in the daylight do not disappoint. You have images that have a good deal of color saturation and details. The HDR shots have good color balance. Low light photography is, however, is an issue as is the case with most of the budget level devices. You get a proper focus, but there is plenty of noise.
Macro shots come quite nicely if you shoot them in a bright daylight. However, same cannot be stated about the low light macro photography.
Video shooting is impressive with the device. It can record 4K videos at 30 fps. You also have access to slow motion videos at 120 fps. Slow motion can be recorded at 720p though. The 4X slow motion is indeed quite good.
Front camera works quite good. You get some really nice selfies. However, they suffer the same fate as they cannot offer you a good shot in low light.
The phone runs on E UI 5.5. The user interface is quite good at that.
The UI offers a lot of customization offers. There is a whole lot of themes to choose from along with an equally good range of wallpapers. You have access to LeTV app. It currently does not do much except syncing your contacts and app data. There is a Control Ceter a la iPhone. You will get multiple toggles to choose from.
LeEco Le 1S review Battery and other features
The phone has a 3000 mAh battery, but given the full HD screen at 5.5 inches will drain most of it. Moderate usage with email syncing, WhatsApp and a couple of calls will be all you can use the phone for. The battery does not last a full working day.
From the connectivity point of view, you will have plenty of options. The phone offers you a dual SIM functionality. You will need a combination of micro and nano SIM to use the dual SIM feature. With the current trend of SIM cards which come in adjustable pre-cut sizes, that should not be an issue. LeEco Le 1S lets you enjoy 4G connectivity. Other connectivity options include GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and USB Type C. The fingerprint sensor works quite comfortably. It works accurately for unlocking your device or other allied options.
LeEco Le 1S has been launched in India at Rs. 10999. Given that price point, I must say it would be the best buy. The phone certainly impresses with its performance. Yes, there are some issues with call quality and battery life. Hardware is no doubt quite classy for the price, but there are certain issues that seem to have gone unnoticed. And that seems to be an issue with software rather than hardware.
However, there is not much competition, though. Honor Holly 2 Plus and One Plus X are closer but have their own issues. If you want power packed performance, this could be your best choice. But if you want the better battery, you may have to look somewhere else.
