As you can see above, both Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and LeEco Le 1S come
with full HD displays, runs Android Lollipop and supports 4G
connectivity on the two SIM cards.
LeEco Le 1s offers brightness level of 500 nits, which is
impressive while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 comes with what the company
terms as the “sunlight display” that adjusts brightness and contrast
according to the ambient light. In addition, there is also a Reading
mode in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 will retail exclusively on Amazon India while the LeEco is restricted only to Flipkart.
On paper, Redmi Note 3 scores higher in terms of battery capacity
and camera’s megapixel count. But then the Le 1S has an octa-core CPU as
opposed to hexa-core processor that powers the Xiaomi device, costs Rs
1,000 less and comes with the latest USB Type-C connectivity port.
Both are loaded with features and are priced competitively,
however, we will refrain from giving a final verdict until we review
both these smartphones.
