A good first attempt, but not quite the utopia that was promised

Micromax Yu Yutopia

from tech2

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

Great attempt from an Indian smartphone make

Micromax Yu Yutopia

from Fone Arena
Overall, the YU YUTOPIA is a great attempt from an Indian smartphone maker. The smartphone is extremely solid and is quite a looker, although we hope YU gets more colours for the device. Now, in terms of why we think that the phone is not worth considering because of the price segment it belongs to... Full review

Work reasonably well with great specs on paper

Micromax Yu Yutopia

from The Indian Express
For a first-time flagship, Yutopia is not a bad effort at all. It’s got all the specs on paper, has a nice design, and performs reasonably well. The 2K screen is great for those who like watching videos and the rear camera does a decent job too. But does Yutopia make other flagships, which come with their legacy and brand value, seem redundant? For now, I can’t say it does... Full review

Good build and finish, sharp display

Micromax Yu Yutopia

from NDTV

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

Looks good for a budget phone

Micromax Yu Yunique

from The Indian Express
The Yu Yunique is a pretty good budget option, especially if you’re looking to buy a first-time smartphone or hoping to get one for your kids. It ticks all the right boxes and does the job. If however, you think that pure Android is boring and want more customisation options, then the Yuphoria or Xiaomi are always an option... Full review

The low-end battle becomes a war

Micromax Yu Yunique

from NDTV

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

A nice package

Micromax Yu Yunique

from Fone Arena
We feel that YU Televentures seems to have a winner on their hand with Yunique. But this is only if the company can deliver to what it promised during the launch – which is after sale service and warranty to consumers who flash their devices to a custom ROM... Full review

Good display, good camera, Cyanogen OS is smooth

Micromax Yu Yureka Plus

from Fone Arena

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

A slight functional upgrade

Micromax Yu Yureka Plus

from Digit

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

Cyanogen OS on a budget, but comes with its flaws

Micromax Yu Yuphoria

from tech2
The phone also has its share of issues such as screen freezing after a call, heating issues, average camera and battery life. Some of these issues could be resolved by relevant software updates in the near future. If you are on a tight budget and want a phone which you can customise to your liking, the YU Yuphoria seems to be a good choice at Rs 6,999... Full review

Cheap price and great phone

Micromax Yu Yureka

The phone is great in all aspects but its battery life believe me is only 5 to 6 hrs. You have keep a power bank with you every time. Secondly. The new update has a major bug. Phone literally stops for some time before resuming to the apps

The BEST with such worst....

Overall the phone is very much satisfactory to every one who bought this.

Overall the phone is very much satisfactory to every one who bought this. BUT as the camera was 13 MP but it seems like 8 MP camera which is in the high range phones like HTC,Samsung etc. It not means the camera was poor quality but it not seems like 13 MP. Then about battery backup, its having 2500 mAh battery but it drains much faster while using WiFi or 3G network. Other than these the phone is the value for your money. Having 2 GB RAM till now I didn't experienced any lagging while using hardcore apps and while switching between apps. If you are looking for a budget phone with high performance then simply go for this. Thumps up.....

Update to lollipop pliz.

Micromax Canvas Gold

Great in peeformance, but internal partition is too small, if we install 5-6 more apps they easily full getting insufficient space , is there any way to increase the size of the partition. I am waiting for the update to lollipop.
