We have all heard that Letv has made a lot of hype about its bezel less smartphones, which not only have a great design, premium materials but also some amazing specs. All that comes with an amazing price tag as well!
In case you missed it, we have already reviewed the Letv One S1 and despite a few shortcomings, which will most likely be fixed via software updates, it turns out to be one of the best deals for your money.

The specs sheet is indeed very good for a price and I have personally tested this device out, and can assure that performs very well in real life scenarios.
The device has a good looking design and outstanding built quality. All of this beauty looks and feels great in the hand and it is comfortable to handle it even with one hand despite its large 5.5” screen. Speaking of display, it is not completely bezel less as there are clearly visible borders on each side, but the edge-to-edge glass does make a great impression. In addition, the screen is sharp, vivid and has great viewing angles.
The UI is very fast, fluid and has a great design, but still has some weird English translations. Also, you can’t remove the LeTV home button. Still, since it’s Android, you can customise the device the way you want and even install the Google Play services manually without a sweat. Moreover, The lack of the MicroSD card slot suggests that you would rather buy at least 32GB model if you are a heavy user.
The powerful chip along with 3GB of RAM is a combination you can trust when it comes even to the most demanding tasks like 3D gaming or 4K footage playback or recording. However, there are some issues in the video recording department, but as I’ve said earlier, there are some high chances that it will be fixed with a software update soon. I may produce a follow-up video on that.
On the other hand, the daylight still camera images look very good and indoor shots are great too. However, the LED flash is simply too bright and hopefully it can be fixed via software update as well. In addition, you can be sure that the battery will keep the lights on for a good amount of time and you would not have any connectivity issues. Finally, LeTV One Le Superphone is without a doubt a great device. Despite a few shortcomings, which I strongly believe can be fixed via software updates very soon, it shapes up to be one of the best offerings on the market for the price of under $300 unlocked
