OnePlus 2 vs Letv Le One Pro X800 – In Search of a Real Flagship Killer

by Linus 24

OnePlus company “invented” a term “Flagship Killer” once they started a huge OnePlus One marketing campaign and it has become very popular every since. Also, the type of promotion OnePlus did was successful in that way that a lot of other Chinese tech companies used this term and right now it seems that when a new top of the line device from China is released, it can be a flagship killer.
I am talking about the OnePlus 2, which has made a lot of hype second year in a row. But what if we put it against the less known Letv Le 1 Pro? (less known for the mainstream users, of course).
Keep in mind that both phones were retested using the latest firmware as of 2015-10-01. This is really important for OnePlus 2 as it has improved significantly in crucial areas like UI speed and camera performance.Β

OnePlus 2 vs. Letv Le 1 Pro: CONCLUSIONS

So there you have it, the OnePlus 2 vs. Letv Le 1 Pro. Are both devices capable of being flagship killers? Well, if we look at the significant price difference of these phones and the mainstream flagships, yes.
But the real question here is who is the real flagship killer. First of all, both devices are great choices and you will make no mistake choosing either of them but they have their own pros and cons.
The OnePlus 2 has a more conventional design and you can customise it by buying some fancy looking back covers. Also, it has a more traditional almost stock looking UI, a slightly better camera in some scenarios, a larger battery and a fingerprint scanner.
The Letv Le 1 Pro has a premium all-metal design, smaller footprint and better ergonomics, and thus the phone feels significantly smaller in the hand. Also, it has a higher resolution display, a good camera, a really nice looking LeUI, stellar performance, fast charge feature and one of the best in class audio quality.
Which one should you choose? At the end of the day, it all comes to the personal preference but you have to keep in mind all the pros and cons each device has. Still, you will make no mistake choosing either of them as these phones are great bang for your buck.
In case you want to check out the full video reviews of each device, you can find them below.

    But if you consider the currently $299 price tag of Letv Le One Pro X800, i think we have a winner…

    • jolu

      I own a oneplus two and I would happily change it to a Letv Pro.

      • I actually like both devices! πŸ˜€ but the design of the Le 1 Pro is a killer.

        • A.R. Kolleman

          Heeey you must be the great guy that makes all these honest video’s! Thank you very much!

        • jolu

          My Letv is on its way, as is my Zuk Z1. They should arrive by the end of this week. Can’t wait to test them out.

    • yes, you are right! Sadly, this price tag is only for 32GB and the 64GB model is still like $529……

      • Ben

        Yeah, what a mess! πŸ™

  • A.R. Kolleman

    Perfect news item haha! I was reading and checking out everything from the LeTV Pro this weekend. And like Sirr says only 299 now which is incredible for that phone! πŸ˜€

    • PaulBV

      299 $ ? Fantastic price , but where ?

      • A.R. Kolleman

        I already tried to answer your message. But they probably don’t like it when you post links. Try Honorbuy or just google for it and you will find them quick enough πŸ˜‰

        • the weblinks are blocked automatically since there are a lot of spammers

          • A.R. Kolleman

            Yeah thats what I thought πŸ˜‰ No problem πŸ˜€

    • great!

  • faquir

    Letv Le One Pro X800 is better than OnePlus 2, I bought it for $319 on oppomart, I do not regret my choice, many thanks Linus !

    • you are welcome!

    • BTN

      Why LTV is better? OP2 as better support, more custom roms on XDA, LTV dosent have any…

      I want to buy a phone i am thking on buying the Letv Le One Pro X800, OnePlus 2 or Xiaomi MI4C, witch one is the best? or do you recomend another one?!

      • you are rights as far as custom ROMS on xda but remember that Letv is a younger company but they are a Chinese tech and internet services giant with 450 subscribers. That means that the customs roms, international software etc. is just around the corner.

        I would choose between Letv Le One Pro X800 and OnePlus 2 (although the Mi4c is so nice and compact!). I am choosing the Letv x800 but if you can’t decide, please watch my video review again for all the pros and cons πŸ™‚

        • BTN

          Thanks mate! Keep the good work!

  • Florea Virgil

    you now what ? I use to be a big fan of oneplus last year, price and cyanogenmod for that specs were unbeatable, unfortunatetly this year they really screwed up everything , from launching till now with several issues wich they are adressing always with superiority, I had already OP2 but I solded after 3 days due tu overheating issues, bad reception and a buggy rom …ordered the LE 1 PRO with 319$ insurance included for customs, indeed a spectacular promo ….FLAGSHIP KILLER you may learn something from LEtv , FACTS not just BLA, BLA BLA , hopefully will get soon an international version of EUI or at list more custom roms support ..Linus thanks man , keep it up !

    • you have some good points, thanks!

  • 2jono

    Hi Linus , great reviews )
    How would you rate the external letv pro speaker sound ?

  • Naveed

    So here after reading almost all comments, every one is agree that Letv X800 is preferably over One Plus 2, even great then is that user that already have One Plus 2 Like Letv X800, so In short Letv X800 is winner πŸ™‚
