Answer- The call quality is good, the voice was clear and the network reception was also great.

Question- How good is The Camera Quality of the LeEco Le 1S?

Answer- It has a 13 MP rear camera with PDAF and f/2.0 aperture, and the front camera is 5 MP shooter. The autofocus on rear camera is quick and accurate. We were amazed to see the camera speed. It took very less time in processing the images and made it look very easy. The pictures showed good amount of details and colours but I noticed a tint of red in the pictures. The picture temperature was on the warmer side in most of the cases. Due to which the colours looked oversaturated in some pictures.

Front camera is also an average shooter which manages to capture good amount of light and details even in low light.  But again the pictures from the front camera looked far from real. The skin tone was not matching the real colours, it was too red instead.
