2015’s LeEco Le 1 (X600) spotted on sale for $129.99 (clearance)


letv s1 review

Remember the LeEco (formerly Letv) Le 1s X600? It was the first phone from China’s LeEco, and quite a radical one. It came with a beautiful screen, 3GB RAM and a lovely camera. You can read the review of the phone here.

Fast forward to 2016, and LeEco are a much bigger name — not just in China, but globally. Phones such as the Le 2, Le 2 Pro and the Le Max 2 now grace the brand’s kitty.

That said, the gem from 2015, the Le 1 X600 is now on sale for a much discounted price of $129.99. Back in the day, these went for over $300 and people still lined up to get one!

What you need to know about the phone is that it has a 1080p 5.5-inch display, 3GB RAM, and the MediaTek MT6595 Helio X10 processor. Refer to the review linked to in the first paragraph for more info about the phone. You can get one for the said price here.

    Was there ever a truly global rom for these with Google Services integrated?

      My mate has had one for almost a year and it’s still full of Chinese bloat and services that can’t be disabled. Each update wipes all Google services which means installing them from scratch. So I guess the answer is no, shame as the phone itself if really nice and fast.

        I think the problem is LeTV designed these phones to work around their streaming services which are all only available in China (for now!). I don’t think they ever thought these phones would both make it out of China and be so popular.

        I have one and installed Google services and it never gets wiped out with the official upgrades.
