LeTV has brought a lot of media attention with their entry into the smartphone market. The company announced not only its entry to the hectic smart devices game, but it also has some huge international expansion plans, which starts in the U.S. LeTV is widely known for its Netflix-like services in its homeland of China, but the most important thing for us tech fans is the new hardware. We have already heard the words that describe LeTV Superphones: bezel less, USB type-C, bleeding edge specs, all-new UI, bill of materials, very low cost for flagship-grade performance and so on. But are the new devices really worth all the hype? Let’s find out in our full review of the LeTV One (S1) Le Superphone.

LeTV Le 1 One S1 X600 Review: UNBOXING
Let me start by taking a very quick look at the presentation of the smartphone. The box is quite simple and as usual, I don’t go too much into details about it. Nevertheless, it has a nice looking minimal design and some specs printed on the bottom side. Leaving the device aside for a moment, you can find a really premium looking presentation. Everything is packed very nicely and it is a pleasure to unbox all the stuff.
The first thing you are going to see in the box is Le Superphone itself.
The contents that come in the packaging include the USB charging cable, which is not only nicely folded in a convenient little travel box, but it is the first USB Type-C cable on the smartphone in the world. I will get back to this topic a bit later, so stay tuned.

The good thing is that it is an Android OS after all and you can always install a custom launcher. I’ve tested Nova and Google Now launchers and it works absolutely fine.
