So is this really the most powerful phone on the planet? Well, not really. We aren’t saying it is a bad phone. For a company that is just one year old, Yu Televentures have designed a good looking phone with top of the line internal specifications. But there are issues with the phone – most of them on the software side which can be fixed with future software updates. The metal body does heat up when using heavy applications due to the Snapdragon 810 chipset. Among the good points you have the camera performance, the tweaking ability of the Cyanogen OS, a wonderful design, lovely... Full review
The Yutopia is certainly a good first premium effort from Yu but it's far from the utopian smartphone that the company envisioned. Simply cramming in top-end components to fit a desired budget doesn't necessarily guarantee the best product. The Yutopia does have its share of redeeming qualities like the excellent 2K display, very good build and finish, quick charging, great multimedia and services integration in the OS and quality bundled accessories.
However, there's plenty of scope for improvement for the next version. The current fingerprint sensor is a bit of a hit-or-miss af... Full review
The Yunique is defined by its price, and the fact that it undercuts the Xiaomi Redmi 2 by a significant amount. In some ways it's better - the styling has more personality and stock Android has its universal appeal. However, the battery is weaker and the camera struggles more. The Yunique is also only available through aggravating flash sales at the moment, while Xiaomi has managed to improve supplies and the actual buying experience.
These are the compromises, and if you're okay with them, you can save the Rs. 1,000 and be happy. Both phones are otherwise great performers with supe... Full review
The Yu Yureka Plus is a good 4G smartphone for the price, even though it is not a major upgrade over YUREKA. It directly competes with the Lenovo K3 Note, which costs Rs. 9,999 that has an edge when it comes to performance and battery life. YU has improved the camera and offers a 1080p display, but the battery life is average and heating issues still exist. Those things aside, the YUREKA PLUS runs on Cyanogen OS with a lot of customization options and security features, compared to other smartphones in the price range. The smartphone is only available through flash sales on Amazon, which is... Full review
The Yu Yureka Plus is a slight functional upgrade over the Yureka. It looks the same from outside, performs similarly, and still has a weak battery strength. It gets an upgrade to a 1080p display, a better and faster Sony IMX214 sensor over the IMX135 on the Yureka, and CyanogenMod 12S over Yureka’s CM11. For Rs. 8,999, the Yu Yureka Plus remains a good proposition in a market segment that has numerous other competitors with similar specifications. If you want your cellphone to be more than just a good performer, the Yureka Plus is not recommendable for you. However, if you are concer... Full review
