"Here are the top reasons you should consider buying the LeEco Le 1s"

The Le 1s is one of LeEco’s first smartphone offerings in India. It packs in a punch with impressive specifications which complement the features built within. Furthermore, the introduction of Le 1s has also raised the benchmark for budget smartphones in the Indian market.

LeEco’s all-round approach has also provided the Le 1s with an edge over its rivals, and while there are a number of reasons it should be the phone to purchase in the affordable segment, here we’ll be highlighting the five topmost reasons why you should consider it.

Unibody metallic design

The Le 1s sports one of the most beautiful designs in its segment as unlike similar-looking plastic smartphones, it’s crafted entirely from metal. Everything from the looks and build quality to the design aesthetics speak of pure class and premiumness. The company has paid special attention to the design of the device, as it sports rounded edges and an almost bezel-less display. Thanks to this feat, the phone is easy to operate single-handedly even with its 5.5-inch full HD screen. It also is quite slim with its waist measuring 7.5mm.

Overall, LeEco has put together a smartphone that will definitely turn heads around.

Powerful hardware

The hardware under the hood doesn’t fail to impress either. The Le 1s is a dual-SIM 4G capable device. Powering the smartphone is the octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor that is usually found in top-of-the-line smartphone. In addition to this, 3GB of RAM ensures smooth transitions and enhanced multitasking capabilities.

The fact that there is 32GB of storage rather than the usual 16GB makes this phone even more compelling.

Moreover, the imaging department is taken care of by 13MP and 5MP shooters for the rear and front respectively.

And if this wasn’t enough, the folks at LeEco even managed to squeeze in a fingerprint scanner on the phone, which also doubles up as a mirror and a shutter button.

Subscription offers to streaming services

When you buy the Le 1s, you’re not just getting the phone itself, as LeEco is including some freebies with the smartphone as well. LeEco announced its partnership with streaming services such as Eros International and YuppTV for offering content. This shows how serious the company is about building its ecosystem. Users would be able to take advantage of these subscriptions to watch movies, as well as about 250 live channels across 12 languages. The content would be available starting second quarter of 2016.

Awesome battery life

The Le 1s has a lot of juice in its 3,000mAh battery to power all the hardware. Going with the new trend, the smartphone has a USB Type-C port for charging which allows the users to insert the cable in either orientation. The company says the fast charging features of the Le 1s can offer up to 3.5 hours of talk time on a charge of just 5 minutes. On the software side of things, there are power-saver modes to use the battery more efficiently.

Overall, the end user is presented with a phone which lasts more than a day even with extensive usage.

Aggressive Pricing

The Le 1s is a complete bundle offering almost everything a user would want. But to top it off, the company has gone with an aggressive pricing for the Le 1s. It will be available for Rs 10,999 on Flipkart via flash sales starting February 2nd. Registrations for the same have already begun. Furthermore, it can be yours at an effective price of Rs 9,999 if you’re an Axis Bank card holder (T&C apply), thanks to the offers available on purchase.
