As for appearance, both devices generally do not differ from each other – are easily mistaken for smartphones, if not much to delve into their performance. However, if the previous two devices are good smartphones for average person, it appeared in the China by name LeEco Cool 1S or, as it is called, Coolpad Cool Changer S1, is the flagship device.

According to reports, the smartphone has not received a 3.5-mm headphone jack. In fact, all of these imitation Apple just rejected, since the majority of users it is important to ease of use, rather than the characteristics of the sound, which have a value only on paper.

Cool Changer S1: design

Although the name of the new items available in no way reflects the fact that it was developed together with the company LeEco, exterior Cool Changer S1 speaks for itself. Roughly speaking, we have all the same LeEco Le Pro 3, which in turn is the same as LeEco Le Pro 2 and other devices LeEko brand. Good or bad, only to solve potential buyers, but it seems that the idea of designers Chinese brand (and in our case the two brands) have dried up.

Cool Changer S1 (LeEco Cool 1S): performance and Antutu

To talk about productivity trends are not particularly necessary. The heart of the smartphone has become a powerful Snapdragon 821, which is capable of delivering very high performance in synthetic tests. The device Antutu Cool Changer S1 gaining 159,000 points, and it is a significant result. Games, applications, high-definition video and even the shell itself will fly on your phone, and for a long time. Even the fact that the beginning of the flagships of 2017 will get even more powerful Snapdragon chipset 835, does not spoil the impression of Cool Changer S1, as the headroom in the smartphone is big enough.

Cool Changer S1 compared with LeEco Le Pro 3 and OnePlus 3T

So, what do we see? Three absolutely identical device, the characteristics of which generally do not differ from each other, except that OnePlus 3T maximum version has 8 GB of RAM (but why so much?) And the weaker battery and LeEco Le Pro 3 can be purchased with 32 GB of non-volatile memory . Read more – if OnePlus 3T remove the front key with integrated fingerprint scanner on the back cover, then distinguish between these three flagship simply would not work as they design for 99% the same.

If you notice, the cost of the cheapest version LeEco Le Pro 3 and Cool Changer S1 is approximately the same – in the region of 26-27 thousand rubles, while the One Plus 3T cost younger version 30% more expensive. At 10 000 overpayment, in fact, part of a larger volume of RAM is 2 GB, and higher quality software main camera, as OnePlus 3T shoots a little better LeEco Le Pro 3.

On the other hand, it is only a problem LeEco and we still do not really know how it works in the back of the camera Cool Changer S1. Nevertheless, even if we leave these shortcomings, the device Cool Changer S1 and LeEco Le Pro 3 looks at the background One Plus 3T more attractive, since they and stronger in Antutu, and significantly cheaper, and the battery capacity is larger by as much as 770 mAh.

If you choose between the Cool Changer S1 and LeEco Le Pro 3, then compare them makes no sense, because it is completely the same device but different inscriptions on the body.
