It has been quite a while since Xiaomi launched its last handset. Back in April 2015, the Chinese gadget manufacturer unveiled the Mi 4i and since then it has been away from the spotlight. With the brand new Redmi Note 3, Xiaomi intends to make a comeback in the budget-phone segment with a price tag of just Rs. 9999.

However, Xiaomi is not the only player trying hard to dominate the sweet low-budget handset market in India.

Recently, the Le 1S  by LeTV was launched priced at just Rs. 10,999. In case you didn’t know, LeTV is yet another Chinese gadget maker known to produce some cool smart gadgets.

Just like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, the Le 1s comes packed with a bunch of cutting-edge features. Let’s have a look at the close comparison of the two:
