MT6795 LeTV Le 1 X600 now on reseller pre-sale for $319!


After innumerable leaks, Chinese content streaming biggie LeTV outed the LeTV One along with a couple other phones about a month or so back.

The LeTV Le 1 comes powered by the all-new MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795) as also seen one some other powerful phones from international brands. Although the SoC remains to be a highlight on the device, there are other things that are noteworthy, including a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera and 5 mega-pixel front camera.

Le 1 (3)

Other specifications of the phone include a 3000mAh battery and a polycarbonate back, which is in contrast to the other phones that launched alongside it. The phone however isn’t as ‘bezel-less’ as advertised prior to its launch.

MT6795 phones are usually priced on the higher end of the spectrum, but in this case, the Le 1 happens to be the most affordable of the three. The phone is usually listed for around $380-400, but GizChina readers can pre-book the device for just $319 using coupon code LETVX600 on GearBest’s listing of the device.

Please note, the phone isn’t in stock as of now and is expected to come month end. We’ll try and bring a full review for whenever possible.

          Elephone has kind of troublesome track record regarding its products ‘ industrial design. They’re all quite bigger than the competition (for the same innards). I don’t know how well i can trust a company -that makes such bad use of space- to create a refined product.

          Now you have to pick between this or zenfone 2.

          • May 9, 2015

            Actually thinking of getting both. But the low internal memory is seriously putting me off. I wont buy any phone with lower than 32GB internal memory.

            Will have to look for something else with 32GB or more, SD expansion and very good performance to replace this one.

        May 8, 2015

        No, not really a beauty. It would look much better with white bezels instead of claiming to be bezelless while having ugly and thick stripes on ALL FOUR sides of the screen. Nothing interesting and deal breaking in the design now, sadly.

        • Stef
          May 9, 2015

          Yeah it’s bigger than a last year’s design, LG G3, not very impressive on screen to body ratio terms. ZTE on the other hand did deliver a trully (side) bezeless design.Probably the only one

    290$ and not a penny more- its about time for MTK to break the market and create a competition.

      It’s not up to MTK.

        true but not accurate, if you take jiayu s3 and put this cpu instead, same specs with better cpu, you know what, take elephone p7000 with fingerprint (same price and bigger battery).
        dont tell me that it costs 100$ more to create this new cpu- its capitalism-and its ok.
        but add 50$ and not 100$ or more, and every one in the world will buy it, because it cost 250$, for something like galaxy s5 that costs 500$ at least.

          I doubt you’d see much difference. Most mid range phones already run MT6752 (imo the best mid range soc by far) which is only 17% slower (1.7ghz instead of 2ghz), so -yeah- not much difference. The difference in performance between MT6592 and MT6595 (last year’s mid-high end Socs) was far greater

    Question… my meizu mx4 [6595] scores 51000 on antutu. So why this phone doesn’t goes higher? And a second one….. Does it takes slow motion video with 400 frames per second?

    • Stef
      May 9, 2015

      6595 has a faster cpu.

      • MaxPower
        May 9, 2015

        But drains the battery twice faster.
        You’re saying that this SoC has not enough power for your daily needs?
        So why don’t you get a laptop then?
        If you are cross compiling binaries from source using a phone then you’re doing it wrong

        • Stef
          May 9, 2015

          No what I’m saying is what I’m saying. MT6595 is faster, antutu is correct this time around. Antutu does not measure battery life, only raw speed

          • MaxPower
            May 9, 2015

            It’s faster handling benchmarks which is a big stress that lasts few seconds.
            In real life the only thing that can be compared is taking a poop and thankfully phones don’t do that.

            • Stef
              May 9, 2015

              It’s also faster because it uses A17 cores which has about 1.3 times better performance for the same clocks, which -in turn- means better every day performance.

              So -yeah- it’s a faster chip in benchmark and real-life use alike. Check it by having the same app load on both phones, then close it, open a second one (and so one and so forth). MT6752 is left far behind, the 17% faster MT6795 -I would expect- won’t fair much better.

              It’s not perception, it’s simply the fact that A17 are “big” cores and designed by ARM for heavy workloads and A53s are “little” cores (albeit of newer generation) designed for lighter loads.

              So yeah, moving from a MT6595 phone to an MT6795 one would lead to lower performance. You may not care about it, I simply state the obvious.

            • MaxPower
              May 9, 2015

              Where did you get those percentage? Please don’t tell me from the frequencies of the cores!

              Do you know the difference between single core and multi core?

            • Stef
              May 11, 2015

              In this case? It means that up to 4 cores MT6595 is faster. From 4 cores and up the A7 cores of MT6595 start to play a role so when we reach 8 cores MT6795 is faster.

              So yea I know what it means. And in this case sicgle core scores *also* mean multi core performance *up to 4 cores*. Capiche? Or do you want more?

              Or maybe you are one of the rare breed of humans whose phones use more than 4 cores at all times (in which case MT6795 is the faster SoC).

            • MaxPower
              May 11, 2015

              The 64bit MT6795 with a lollipop ROM benefits of all those cores since single core score means SINGLE THREAD per time, per core. So up to 4 cores is most likely 4 threads at time.
              Now, regardless the benefit of 64 bit technology, it’s enough to play any game (which most of them are multi-thread) or simply browsing the internet while listening to music to see the difference.
              6595 is faster handling a single thread which require lot of power which in real life could be what? Unzipping a big archive?
              Of yeah, running benchmarks!!
              Again, of you user your phone to run benchmarks then yes, go for the MT6595. And don’t forget to stay close to a power socket since battery won’t last long.
              MT6595 might have a bigger raw power which you won’t reproduce in real life.On the other hand Helio X1 benefits from 64 bit technology and is more efficient and you’ll notice in real life.

              May 11, 2015

              You seem to lave low comprehension skills. Let me articulate to you the significance of those scores: the Single core score shows which architecture is faster. Now 6595 is made from 4 weak cores (A7s) and 4 powerful ones (A17s). 6795 is made out of 8 mid cores (neither too powerful nor too weak)…

              Now when a process uses 4 cores (say a game, a benchmark, a browser) on 6595 it will use the 4 powerful cores, on 6795 it will use the 4 weaker cores. So 6595 is faster in *all* those instances. 6795 shines when 8 cores are used (i.e. geekbench’s multicore) that is because core #5-#8 of 6595 are veeery weak (A7s).

              So unless you’re using situations were more than 4 cores (you don’t ) 6595 *decimates* 6795. Do you understand it now, or do you want me to show to you charts showing how android phones rarely max more than 4 cores. 6795 is a downgrade in performance, get over it.

              May 11, 2015

              You seem to have low comprehension skills since you don’t get the difference between benchmarks and real life situations. You provided 3 real life situations: game, browsing, and benchmarks (lol at this last one).
              Speaking of browser we don’t have any data yet, you might guess that the 32 bit 6595 is faster that 64 bit lollipop 6795, I’m guessing differently since chrome can use all those 8 cores, but we’ll wait when full benchmarks will be out. About games, well, here we have benchmarks to compare and in real life the 6795 outperforms 6595 due to a better GPU.
              What last? Benchmarks, right, and here we are at my first post.
              6595 might be better than 6795 running benchmarks.
              I know that that’s what you do all day long, but there’s people out there that use a smartphone for the purpose it’s meant to.

            • Stef
              May 11, 2015

              I did not provide 3 real life situations (or claimed to do so), I provided the example of 3 work loads to drive my point home, you don’t have to read too much on it.

              A CPU is faster when it can do more , there’s absolutely no contest between a big core (A17) and a small one (A53). I’lltell it once again, small cores are not designed to be speed deamons, they’re slower by design so that to achieve better efficiency. It’s silly to expect an A53 standing a chance against a big core. Even if you disbelieve (all) the benchmarks, just *read* ARM schematics and comments. A53 is designeded to be slower than A17, it *is* slower, end of story. Educate yourself already.

              Now if you are satisfied w A53 performance all the more power to you,it’s still slower than A17 cores…

              What you fail to realize though all of this though is the 6795 isn’t the flagship SoC from Mediatek, that is going to be the 6797 with A72 cores that is going to destroy the 6595 in all of your benchmarks. The 6795 is akin to the 6592, the high end SoC until the real flagship is released.

            • Stef
              May 11, 2015

              Agreed that may be the case. Maybe they changed their SoC naming in this generation. To tell you the truth I always thought of 6752 as the successor of 6592, but maybe it is the 6795 the one. Whatever’s the case the 8xA53s muuurder the 8xA7s of 6592. They still lose to the A17s of 6595, end of story.

            • balcobomber25
              May 11, 2015

              And the A17’s will lose to the 6797 the true flagship SoC, end of story. Although this only applies to benchmarks which Max has been trying to point out to you. For someone who is all about performance you should know their is a huge difference between real world usage and benchmarks.

            • Stef
              May 11, 2015

              That’s what i find enraging. You don’t even read what I write. I clearly wrote that A17 is faster in real life as well as in benchmarks than A53. Why is it so hard to understand? A faster architexture equals faster performance in all usage scenarios. More cores not so. Yes 6797 would be faster and that’s exactly because A72 is a very fast architecture.

              My phone was using A7s and then moved to one using A15s, the difference is eyepopping. I wouldexpect the same between 6795 (A53) and 6797 (A72)

            • MaxPower
              May 11, 2015

              What you keep not understanding is that I never denied the more raw power of the 6595, and running benchmarks is the leader.
              In real life situations with a 64 bit lollipop you won’t see any difference. But you’ll see it draining the battery, you’ll see a worse GPU.
              That’s what was needed and that’s where they focus on it.
              Now the goal is exynos 7420 and that’s why they are coming with the 6797 like Balcobomber25 said.

            • Stef
              May 11, 2015

              Even on lollipop I veery much doubt that 6795 would be the faster chip. Yeah 64bit helps, but never more than 10% extra performance on a 64bit OS.

              The only case that I can imagine a 6795 phone to *feel* faster than a 6595 one is if it uses a 64 bit OS (lolipop) + (using) 4GB of ram or more. That is because 6595 can’t utilize 4 or more gigs of ram (it’s a 32bit SoC) , plus linux setups use ram for caching so -over time- everything would be more reactive.

              Then again all 6795 phones use 3gigs of Ram so a big part of the benefits of 64bit are wasted.

            • MaxPower
              May 11, 2015

              And back to your first post, moking at mediatek, what in your opinion they were supposed to do after the 6595? Focus on performance? He he.
              That’s hilarious.
              They didn’t need more power, definitely not for a single core score. We entered the lollipop era that’s why they needed a 64 bit Soc capable of using all the cores. We needed a better GPU and even if just slightly better at least they improved.
              We needed better power management and more thermal control. So yes, regardless your opinion they made a better SoC. Deal with it.

              May 11, 2015

              Correct me if I am wrong Max but aren’t all the 6795 cores clocked exactly the same? They are all A53 cores clocked up to 2 GHZ?. I ask because I am confused by his line here:

              “on 6795 it will use the 4 weaker cores”. If they are A53 clocked the same, what are the 4 weaker cores?

            • Stef
              May 11, 2015

              I made a mistake , i meant 6595 is using 4 weaker cores. It’s only then when 6795 shines, i.e. when 6595 is forced to employ the weak cores. Understood now?

            • MaxPower
              May 11, 2015

              My point is that benchmarks don’t tell you the whole story.
              Last year top scorer was the Nvidia K1 that on benchmarks wiped everyone down.
              On real usage I’ve heard only complains about the Nvidia shield for example. People have said that user experience was better on rockchip rather than Nvidia.

            • balcobomber25
              May 11, 2015

              I know exactly what your point is and I agree with it. Benchmarks can also be different for two phones with the same SoC.

              May 11, 2015

              I n3ver said that 6595 is the better soc, i said it is the fastest mediatek 3ver made. It may still have weak gpus, weak 8 core performance, bad thermals and battery. All those are a possibility it’s still the fastst chip mediatek ever made. Typically a new generation upgrades the performance as well as everyhing else, the fact that it is slower is a bit comical, that’s all i ever said. I.e. to buy a new generation and to experience lower performance is a first, prove me wrong.

      Antutu is one of the most overrated ways to judge a SoC. It’s like judging a car by 0-60 time and nothing else.

      • Stef
        May 9, 2015

        Then again Meizu’s big cores are A17s @ 2.2ghz. This one has A53s @ 2GHz so in most things (using 4 cores at most) MT6595 *is* faster. So maybe Antutu is often wrong, but this time around it’s mostly right.

        It’s Mediatek’s fault, they followed last year’s flagship with a weaker one, I think we shoukld give it to Antutu for exposing this very fact to more people than those who are knowledgeable to SoC microarchitectures.

        • balcobomber25
          May 9, 2015

          Antutu is one benchmark. Geekbench is another one. Geekbench compares phones single and multicore performance. In Geekbench the 6795 has a top multicore score of 5409, the 6595 tops out at 4009.

          Mediatek has built an amazing chip with the 6795, don’t get fooled into looking at clock speeds alone or one benchmark and thinking that makes it faster. Read about the actual architecture behind each cheap. The 6595 was a very good SoC but the 6795 and it’s older brother the 6797 are going to be game changers this year.

          • Stef
            May 9, 2015

            …that’s why I said “if less than 4 cores are used”. Multi-core score of the MT6795 is obviously better due to the weak A7s of MT6595.

            But in most of the times 4 or less cores are used in which cases MT6595 is clearly faster by a wide margin. Just look at Geekbench’s single-core scores.

            A17 @ 2.2Ghz >> A53 @ 2Ghz, no matter how you spin it. MT6595 is the faster chip *unless* you’re gaming a lot or use more than 4 cores in your everyday tasks (you don’t).

              I don’t know, i don’t care. I never said that MT6595 has better battery than MT6795, maybe it does, maybe it doesn’t. What I wrote is that MT6595 is faster in processes that use 4 cores or less (99% of them all). So yeah MT6795 is a downgrade in *performance*. That’s a first, a new generation being a downgrade, I find it a bit comical.

              May 10, 2015

              No it’s not. A SoC is not faster or slower because it has better (or worse) battery. You’re quite lax concerning the meaning of the word performance. To me it’s “which is faster”, and MT6595 in most cases is the one. It’s not necessarily the better SoC, just faster.

              In other words if suddenly Meizu decides to put out an MT6795 based MX4 it would *feel* slower on real life usage. Not vastly slower, about the difference between Snapdragon 805 when compared to Snapdragon 800 and some more. It’s a downgrade on *perfor,ance*

              It was mentioned in the thread multiple tines so I added it to the end of the thread. It just so happened that your post was the last in the thread.then you went off on a meaningless ramble. I responded with does anybody else have a comparison of the battery life? At this point, a reasonably helpful person would either ignore the post if they can’t help or pull up the related information. You aren’t trying to be helpful. You are trying to be confrontational. Since you aren’t helpful, I’m going to ignore your posts until they become helpful. Good day and chill out.maybe if you stop coming off so harshly, people won’t respond to you in such a way. Stop trying to argue so damn much.

              The only one lax about the meaning of the word is you. Here is the actual definition of performance as it related to this topic:

              “the capabilities of a machine, vehicle, or product, especially when observed under particular conditions.”

              Performance isn’t just about how fast or slow something is. Battery life would be considered one of those particular conditions.

              Strictly speaking yeah, but I made clear what i was talking about in my very first post, so to mistake that i talk about battery means that one doesn’t pay attention and i found that enraging. Wouldn’t you?

              They’re of prime signifigance. Technology ultimately changes what means to be human. 1000 years ago people were experiencing life vastly differently because they were less technological than how we are today. In fact i may argue that they’re of far more importance than banal things like what your neighbor did or what colour is the hair of a said actress.

              I think i was justly enraged.

              It’s true though. There are sociological studiesmshowing how papuan tribes can’t differentiate blue from green merely because they have not been accustomed to the sight of artificial colouring. Our brains are sculpted by technology.

              If you ask me that ‘s the only reason why technology is of such central importance (it changes us). So of course I take seriosuly such conversations, they’re the most oimportant.

              It’s funny how you use the example that in real life you don’t use more than 4 core (on what basis rather than your guess?) But we still need the extra hipotethical power of the 6595?
              I’ve asked you to provide a scenario that is not running a benchmark where you benefit the 6595 over the 6795 and you came out with nothing.
              While it’s widely proved that chrome browsing on lollipop benefits of all the cores you showel to it.
              You might find comical that mediatek gave up on single core power in a multitasking era, I don’t. We have different opinions. Power menagment was the priority, 64 bit another one.

            • Stef
              May 11, 2015

              It’s not as if 6595 is not a multitasking beast. In fact when maxing 4 cores or less it’s faster than 6795. Chrome uses all cores. But on a big.little setup (like MT6595) it would be confined to the “big” cluster producing greater core utilization of the 4 (big) cores compared to it being balanced on 8 cores (butnwith lower utilization). This simply means better performance, as 4 fast cores with greater utilization are faster than 8 slower cores with low(er) utilization. Ifcyou pushe me more I’d provide the sources of the average core utilization on typical use scenarios.

              6595 is faster in practically everything…

            • Stef
              May 11, 2015

              The benchmark scores are irrelevant they’re merely a tool to show to you what ARM is screaming at the top of their lungs for years now. A17 is a big core , A53 is a small core (albeit a newer one). That should be enough to show to you which SoC is faster. But some people won’t read ARM documents, so I show to them the benchmarks. Then they say , naaah even benchmarks are irrelevant. I’m sure even if I was to put the phones side by side so that to articulate the simp,e fact the tnat “small” cores (like A53) are weaker even then one would find reasons why even that test isn’t valid.

              If it tests better, if it *feels* faster, if the very manufacturer says it’s faster, I say it *is* faster. You want to argue otherwise? Ok , all I’m saying that arguing otherwise is inconsequential and bananas. Prove me wrong.

          You’re really cracking me up with your comments about storage.
          You’re getting me curious though:
          What phone do you own right now? How much did you pay for it and how much storage did you get?

          • desponent
            May 9, 2015

            Unlimited, since I can just add more if I want to. What phone I have is none of your business and bear nothing to this conversation.

            If you don’t like my opinion, either laugh at it or ignore it, I don’t care. You can also write funny s like above, it’ll give me a chuckle and some insights.

              I was not going to make fun of you for the phone you own, don’t worry about that.
              You have being mocking phones without SD card,
              Mocking phones with black frame, with big bezels, with big Roms.
              That’s why I’m asking, what kind of phone do you have since you have been so snobbish about other people phones?
              Do you still own the Jiayu g4s or you change it?

              I don’t care if you “make fun” of my phone, it’s just a thing, however the conversation won’t go anywhere and just be dragged to whatever your level is by asking that.

              I think we’re done here. I’m still laughing at this phone mind. LOL.

              Sooo, deal with it? lol.

              Though I do have solution for anyone who doesn’t seem to be able to handle differing opinion. A mythical art of ignoring things, especially some random internet anons.

              I love chinese phones which is worth their money according to my standard. I don’t blindly love them all. I can express my opinion all I want and sure enough, some people seems to be offended by that.

              And again, everytime you reply me here, I’m reminded that this phone want >$300 for 8GB… LOL.

              I could care less about this phone’s storage, I have no plans of buying one. I’m more interested in how well it performs with the SoC.

              Good for you. I’m still laughing at it although I then wonder why even bother buying a phone that may only be marginally faster for doing mundane tasks since the phone clearly can’t do anything worthwhile with its super limited storage.

        Nope, helio x10 is true octa (8xA53).

            But is ZTE Z9Mini camera better? Z9 Mini have IMX234, buth LETV have IMX 214. Is that a big difrence?

            In general, which is a better phone? 🙂
