YU Yureka vs The Rest : Quick Comparison

Browse This Page

Newly launched brand YU unveiled its first smartphone, Yureka, a few days back. The new company has been born from a collaboration between Micromax’s Founder Rahul Sharma and custom ROM maker CyanogenMod. The arrival of the high-speced low-budget smartphone has created quite a stir. From day one it was off to a rocky start; it began by banning OnePlus from selling their popular handset in India.

Hence, we decided to check out how the Yureka fares when compared with the rest of the competition. So, away from the court, let the real battle begin.

Barring the hype about Yureka’s deal with Cyanogen, it seems like it even packs some punch under the hood. The smartphone is going to be available via the infamous flash sale system popularized by Xiaomi, the registrations for which have already begun.

We’d advise you not to get too carried away by the hype. Wait for our full review before investing in the handset!

    I’d like to see this points in full review.

    1. Colour production on display, how 720p display looks on a 5.5 inch screen.

    2. Images from camera are blue? which is a problem in most of all micromax phones.

    3. Battery backup

    4. Onsite service

    5. Hardcore gaming, heat test

    Are you a mobile blogger??? Go home. you drunk!!!
    *Moto G2 has 8 MP rear and 2 MP front camera and 8/16 GB internal memory.
    **Xiaomi Redmi note has 1.7GHz (3G)/1.6GHz (4G) processor. So why did you give 1.5 GHz Yu Yureka high score?????? Yukera don’t have more than 4 GB RAM of 64 bit OS, so here 64 bit microprocessor works as a 32 bit microprocessor (32 bit is not a suitable platform for 64 bit microprocessor) and it is nothing but a gimmick.
    *** Yu Yureka camera sucks. Wide angle, Quality, Color is poorer than Redmi Note!!!

      Did you just say that Mediatek MT6592 and Snapdragon 400 are better than Snapdragon 615?

    Should have given score to YU in storage department. 16GB Internal is always better than 8GB expandable to 64.
