Comparing these smartphones with the competitors, we feel the pricing to be a little on the higher side because Le1S is a perfect competitor for Honor 5X whereas Holly 2 Plus though having its USPs like CDMA support and 4000mAh battery might not be able to beat Coolpad Note 3 Lite at 6,999. When a mere 1000 bucks matter so much for the market, it clearly states that competition is very close.

The smartphones will be available at Flipkart and Amazon.in

We haven’t spent much time with the smartphone to draft a first impressions, so that will be coming soon when we have the smartphone for review.
