In the mid-segment, there is tough fight between two Chinese smartphones, Le 1s launched in the month of January and Redmi Note 3 launched few days ago in India. Co-incidentally, both the phones have been getting huge response from Indian buyers and are almost similarly priced.
We do not have the opportunity to review yet Redmi Note 3 as we have not got the device so far from the company. With the launch of Redmi Note 3, LeEco has come out with a comparison of Le 1s vs Redmi Note 3 to enable the prospective buyers to see the difference and make their decision accordingly.
Le 1s has a full metal Uni-body, bezel-less design and is possibly the world’s only all- metal body device crafted with aircraft grade alumin, and feature a screw-less industrial design with no visible trace of industrial assembling that mark the aesthetics of the device. Compared to Redmi Note 3, the Le 1S is 13% slimmer and sleeker measuring just 7.5mm, as against 8.65mm of Redmi Note 3, as stated by LeEco.
The company further states that Le 1s is on a strong wicket as it is powered by an octa-core 2.2 GHz CPU as opposed to hexa-core 1.8 GHz processor that powers the Xiaomi device. Moreover, LeEco’s Le 1s costs Rs. 1,000 less and comes with the latest USB Type-C connectivity port. The Le1s’ revolutionary Type C charger also makes charging quick — just 5 minutes of charge gets you 3.5 hours of talk time.
The Le 1s also has a toughened glass protection – the Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a feature that only high priced flagship phones currently offer. Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3, however have overlooked this key aspect of a branded toughened glass protection, leaving consumers vulnerable to phone damage due to mishaps and accidents, claims LeEco.
Furthermore, Le1s has been the top seller in China since its release last October – having sold more than 2 million units in just two months and has created several industry records in India as well.
LeEco is emphasising a lot on its content ecosystem that it will be introducing in India in second quarter of this year. LeEco has already signed contracts with Eros and Yupp TV and has inked a dea with Eros Now for Video-on-demand (VOD) and with YuppTV for TV content streaming.
