I hate comparisons between smartphones. No, not because I think they are irrelevant, but because at similar price points, most smartphones these days tend to offer a similar set of specifications in similar looking chassis. However, it's not the case with this one. While the two smartphones stand neck-to-neck in the sub-Rs 15,000 category, the Honor 5X is beautifully designed and offers some nifty edges over the Samsung Galaxy J7.
Huawei's sub-brand, Honor, recently launched the Holly 2 Plus in India, along with the Honor 5X. The Holly 2 Plus is the successor of Honor Holly launched in 2014. An affordable smartphone, the Holly 2 Plus lands in a crowded budget smartphone in the Indian market.
LeEco has joined hands with Akshaya Patra, an Indian NGO, to support a mid-day meal for two children for every Le Superphone (Le 1s and Le Max) sold on LeEco Day on February 25, 2016.
After having announced bringing the global shopping bonanza - LeEco Day - to India, LeEco has announced two more offers. On LeEco Day, the Le1s will be available on Flipkart without consumers having to go through the registration process. The shopping bonanza promises Rs 8 crore worth of prizes and benefits, and will be held on February 25.
Last month, LeEco announced their flagship killer Le 1s - the real star of the show that has taken the industry by surprise. The Le1s which is priced at an affordable tag of Rs 10,999 gives a tough competition to other flagships which are at higher price bands.
Forget the flagship smartphones, the real battle of one-upmanship between smartphone brands in India is being fought in the budget to mid-range category. Of course, that's where the volumes are too. Two affordable smartphones launched last month went on sale recently and are head-to-head on the specifications sheet as well as in consumer interest. The Lenovo K4 Note and the LeEco Le 1s both look pretty good on paper and also pack in a few aces up their sleeves. Let's take a look at how they compete against each other.
LeEco conducted its first flash sale in India today on Flipkart, and sold 70,000 phones in just two seconds. The Chinese technology brand claims this is the highest number of phones sold out in a single flash sale and the shortest time ever for sale of such a large number of phones.
The Le 1s, the budget smartphone from LeEco, is arguably world's only metal unibody phone featuring a screw-less industrial design.
After Apple made fingerprint recognition on smartphones a unique feature with the iPhone 5s, in the past few months, we have seen several smartphones across the price spectrum with fingerprint recognition technology. The affordable LeEco Le 1s, though has taken the fingerprint sensor to the next level in performance and aesthetics.
LeEco recently launched its flagship smartphone, Le Max. Along with it, the company also launched the Le 1s. At Rs 10,999, the smartphone looks pretty good on the specifications sheet and ups the ante with some neat features.
