Honor 5x was the most awaited Model, after Lenovo K4 Note and Le 1s. Though, Le 1s disrupted the whole Market sub INR 10000. After Le 1s was launched at 10,999 with huge specs, customer expectations have gone up, in terms of high specs with Low Price.
Before, Le 1s was launched, getting 3GB RAM with 16GB at a price of 10k was the standard. But now, every one expects to get 32GB at this price Range. Lets have a look at the comparison of all the Three New Models in the same price range and specs. Pictures speak better than words.
Design and Display
Design of all the smartphones is same – Metal Uni-body with concealed battery. Except, Lenovo K4 where the back cover is poly-carbonate. Though 5x and Le 1s look far premium than K4 Note. Dont forget 1s is a slim Smartphone though slightly heavy in weight. But who bothers about 10 g, more important is sleekness.
Both 1s and K4 got Corning Gorilla glass, while on other side 5x just got Anti-Glare screen.
Let’s put it upfront, Out of SD 616, SD 410 and Helio X10 – No two doubts every one will go for 616 or X10. Let’s add two more key features, GPU and processor speed. All three put together makes Le 1s a clear winner with 2.2 GHz as against Honor 5x @ 1.5GHz and K4 @ 1.3 GHz.
When it comes to Gaming ,HD Movie streaming and Multi-Tasking, 1s will surely beat the other two smartphones easily.
RAM & Memory
No two doubts, 1s and K4 emerge as winner, as 5x got only 2GB RAM. But 1s beats every one as it got 32GB In-build memory, which is the DEal cracker in this case.
Though, 1s does not support external memory ( Le Team still needs to confirm whether 1s got Hybrid Sim or Dual Sim Tray ). Whatever the case may be, I will rate 1s far better than both 5x and K4. For me, Internal memory plays a vital Role. Bigger the Better.
Though, We need to test the camera in all the three cases, but on paper 1s camera seems to win the case with f/2.0 on front and Rear Camera.
Though, Lenovo got Dual Tone Dual LED flash for brighter images in dark, but honestly whether it will support Bright Pictures or no. There are two classifications, one is bright picture and other one is noise-free Picture in night. What I believe, f/2.0 should support noise free bright pictures, as compared to Dual Tone flash.
K4 got 3400 mAh battery as compared to 1s and 5x, which got 3000 mAh battery, but not to forget, Le 1s supports quick charge, which is a key factor, when we take battery life / charging time in consideration.
In case of emergency, with zero battery on all the three smartphones, 1s will surely be a winner with 3.5 hrs talk time on 5 minute charge.
Do I need to mention, Le 1s is way too aggressive in pricing @ Rs 9899 ( with 10 % cash back, which is applicable in my case ), that makes it cheaper by Rs 2000 ~ 3000 than K4 ~ X5.
Brand and Service
Offcourse, Le is a new entrant in Indian Market, But Xiaomi , One plus were also New when they entered in New Market, but the acceptance of the Brand was much more than Sony, Samsung and HTC.
Talking of Service, As of now, Le is offering good service back-up and yes, free pick-up and Delivery too. With almost 450 SVC centers in pocket, Le seems to competitive.
For me Le 1s is a clear winner in terms of Technical specs and Price, which is one of the major critera for any customer. Value for Money.
In my whatsapp Group also, I took review from some of the close friends, and young generation. Every one is positive about 1s. If you feel this is a paid review, than , I will suggest, please do have a look at the Registration figures for Le 1s, which was over 300k just within 2 days of launch.
