                  After the launch of Le 1s, lot of users have been asking for the comparison of key Models around Rs 10000. We decided to compare Le 1s, Redmi Note Prime, Lenovo K4 , Elephone P9000 and Coolpad Note 3.

                  Overall, 1s seem to beat all the models in this price range except Elephone P9000, where it got beaten by camera and external memory support. But, As Elephone P9000 is still not available, at the moment 1s seems to win the battle.

                  Brand Positioning

                  LeECO treated Indian Market equivalent to other markets, and users are well respected. No Dumping ground, all latest Mobile launched and from Day 1 successfully managed the respect of Brand as well as consumers.

                  Design

                  1s got Metal Unibody and narrow bezel, with the highest screen to body ratio of 80 %, which makes it the sleekest smartphone in the category. While on other side coolpad , Xiaomi and Lenovo seem to loose out owing to cheap materials used. With hardly 7.6 mm thickness and 168 g in weight, the phone looks premium and stylish and very comfortable for using one handed operation.

                  Display

                  Lenovo K4 seems impressive with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, but as mentioned in Design part, Display looks more elegant in 1s due to narrow bezel. Not to forget, 1s uses Anti-fingerprint coating, which means you can use touch display with gloves on.

                  Processor

                  Though, Processor in P9000 is slightly better , but when we talk of speed, 1s is a winner by few miles. P9000 is using the latest Deca-Core as against Octa-core of 1s. But, the key question is Helio X10 better than other processors used. The anser is, yes.

                  RAM is also high in case of P9000, On papers P9000 is a clear winner, again the key point is availability ?

                  Memory

                  I am always with internal memory on higher side. P9000 is a clear winner with 32GB Internal memory and 128GB external memory support. 1s comes on 2nd spot with 32GB internal memory, but no external memory support.

                  Camera – Need to be tested for 1s , K4 and p9000

                  No two doubts, if we talk of available Mobiles, 1s camera is far better due to f/2.0 available at this price range. I would like to highlight, camera in all the smartphones is same i.e. 13MP + 5MP. The major difference is in terms of camera features, where 1s seems to beat all smartphones.

                  But still, I will go ahead with the camera of 1s as against Xiaomi, Coolpad and Lenovo. I never liked Lenovo camera and Touch. If you ask me to rate camera, In today’s scenario, I will rate 1s on top ( though need to check camera quality ) and than, Xiaomi, Coolpad and Lenovo.

                  Battery

                  This is the most interesting part. I will go ahead with 1s, because of fast charge. where can you get 3.5 hrs of talk time with 5 minutes charge. Any battery above 3000 mAh with fast charge will win the game.

                  Sensors

                  Most of the smartphones today come with fingerprint sensors. 1s got fingerprint sensor on back, like other Android Smartphones. 1s is known as LeTouch with fast and accurate finger print sensor.

                  Here is the Table of comparison, you can judge yourself. who wins the game.

                  Service Backup

                  Though, Xiaomi and Lenovo are well established in indian market with good service backup, but LeECO won the game by establishing 455 Service centers across India, and offered free pick upa nd drop service.

                  What I will term this as ” Service at Door step “, just a call away.
