SPECS AND REVIEWS OF LeTV 1S
- LeTV 1s features an amazing 5.5 inches, full-HD display (1080p), and looks really vibrant.Translating to over 400 pixels per inch (ppi), the viewing angles on the device is nearly perfect.
- Watching movies and music videos on the Le 1S was pleasing to the eyes, since it offered an amazing image quality which I doubt any phone in this price range can offer.
- Visibility under the sun did take a while to get used to, but at the end came out to satisfactory.
- The wide range of brightness levels presented on the phone lets user to find the resonating brightness which suits their eyes. If made to choose a selling factor, it would definitely be its display.
- With edges quite similar to that of iPhone 5s, the Le 1s gives a good grip in hand.
- The rear side and the edges of the phone are made up of high grade Aluminium, which is topped up with chambered edges which makes it very appealing
- With a thickness of just 7.5mm, edge-to-edge display and slim bezels, the phone gives a really premium feeling.
- The design stands out among the crowd. The power button and the volume rocker on the right edge, the 3.5mm earphones jack and the IR blaster on the top edge, sim-card tray on the left while the USB Type-C port and the speaker grill sits on the lower edge of the Le 1S.
- The key placement is more of an industry standard now, and are well within reach.
- The device comes with 3GB of RAM, a 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor and 32GB of internal storage.
- It can easily manage to run graphic extensive games like Real Racing and Asphalt 8,Subway Surfers, Temple Run and Candy Crush .
Features and Operating System
- It has a really simple user interface, which is friendly to majority of the smartphone users.
- With Music and Remote Control being the only applications that top up the eUI, which is based on Android 5.0.2. Most of the user interface Seems to be picked up from latest version of iOS, especially the quick settings tab!
- The main highlight of Le 1S is its fingerprint scanner, which wasn’t upto the mark. Having tried multiple phones with a fingerprint sensor installed on them, this one doesn’t match up to the accuracy and the speed of those devices. With around 40% accuracy rate and about 1 second as the time required to unlock the device, the Le 1S puts the fingerprint feature to a big question.
- A 13MP rear shooter on the LeEco Le 1s, does a satisfactory job when it comes to clicking outdoor pictures or images under good amount of natural lighting.
- The indoor looked to be quite grainy and didn’t really produce the actual colours. The real camera comes with PDAF, ultra fast focus, ISOCELL 5P Lens, f/2.0 aperture and LED flash.
- The night shots taken on this phone doesnot seem satisfying since there’s no such option to set the mode to ‘Night Mode’
- In addition, the rear camera also allows you to shoot Slo-Mo videos
- The 5MP front camera does a reasonable job too. With a wide-angle lens and f/2.0 aperture lens.
- The device comes with a battery backup of 3000mAh, the Le 1S performs way better than we expected it to. Allowing us to use the device for a little longer than a day, on average use is good enough for Android smartphones with such vivid displays.
- With the fast charging available on the Type-C port of the 1S, the device can be charged upto 60% in just 30 minutes, which might be of interest to many people out there.
