LeTV Le1S unboxing and hands on

Unboxing, hands on and first impressions of the all new LeTV Le1S Android smartphone. Keep reading for the unboxing video and my first impressions.

Over this past year I have test some great phones and one of the best came from LeTV. In my possession I have the LeTV Le 1 (read the review here) and the LeTV Le Max, but it was the Le 1 which really knocked my socks off and rewrote the rule book for affordable smartphones.

A few weeks ago, LeTV announced the all new LeTV Le1S a phone which builds on what’s great about the original Le 1 but adds a new high-end build and updated features to the phone while costing less.

From the front the LeTV Le 1S looks almost identical to the Le 1 with a 5.5-inch display and a design that looks like the phone has no bezels. The rest of the design is much improved though as is build. The Le 1S features a unibody all alloy body, and a rounder profile for a slightly more comfortable feel.

The all new metal body also has a new location for the 13 mega-pixel F2.0 rear camera and comes with the addition of a fingerprint scanner. The sensor on the fingerprint scanner has a mirror finish, so its possible that it will double up as a mirror so you can use the main camera for selfies too.

Under the hood the LeTV Le 1S is pretty similar to the original Le 1 but with a more powerful 2.2Ghz Helio X10 chipset. The rest includes 3GB RAM, 3000mAh battery, 5.5-inch display and LeTV’s EUI ROM based on Android 5.0.2.
