Clash of the thrifty Titans: Comparison between LeEco Le 1s and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

Looks like the battle between LeEco Le 1s and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 just got more intense. Both the devices are beefed up with features, which makes them a great offering from the price point of view. The Redmi Note 3 and Le 1s are pretty much similar when it comes to build material, storage, and RAM. However, there are a variety of other factors that distinguish them.
In terms of the battery size and connectivity features, both the devices are different. Take a look at the chart given below, it presents a straight up comparison between the two. Also, it clearly depicts that both the devices are raging competitors.

Taking a look at what the LeEco Le 1s offers, the device comes equipped with 3GB of RAM and 32GB eMMC 5.0 storage. It features USB Type-C port, and Gorilla Glass 3 protection that gives it an edge over Redmi Note 3. Also, the Le 1S has an almost bezel-less display, and is reasonably thinner than its counterpart, as it measures just 7.5 mm.

The Redmi Note 3’s significant advantage is a 4000mAh battery that comes bundled with fast charging support. The device comes powered by a Snapdragon 650 chipset (its MediaTek variant is not available for India) and features a 16MP rear camera.

Another lead taken by the Redmi Note 3 is its expandable storage. We think that the Snapdragon 650 powered Redmi Note 3 would provide a better performance and connectivity choices as it support VoLTE, which is missing in the Le 1s. The Snapdragon 650 is a powerful chipset with Cortex-A72 cores but it consumes more battery, while the Helio X10 chipset present in the Le 1s consumes less battery, thanks to Cortex-A53.


After comparing both the devices on the grounds of design and specs, we believe that both the smartphones have the power to emerge as the leaders in the arena of budget devices.

To make the choice easier, we would like to break it down on the basis of preferences. Those who are not willing to experiment with a new brand, and want to have a bigger battery, VoLTE support, expandable storage, and better camera, can go for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. On the other hand, those who are not afraid to try a new brand and (in the Indian market) want a premium design with (iPhone 6-like), somewhat bezel-less display, USB Type-C connectivity; can go for the LeEco Le 1s.
