The Indian leading Smartphone maker Micromax is getting charged to release a new CyanogenMod powered phone under a new brand “Yu”. This has been creating great buzz in Internet from past few days of its release. We have the complete details on the device which will be generally compared to Oneplus One as both run on CyanogenMod. This can be very similar (or even better) device to OnePlus One at a price of Rs. 8,999 in India which is far less than that of OnePlus One.

Must Read : Micromax YU Yureka vs OnePlus One | Which Is a Better Cyanogen Smartphone?

It’s specifications are not very flashy, but is the first mobile of OS CyanogenMod 11. Well, actually the second after OnePlus One. Micromax is up with a Cyanogenmod version with its new beast at cheap and best price supporting every feature of OPO.

There are lot of thing that to me marked in our checklist to get a debut product of market. So here are the major 5 specifications that make this phone not a super hit debut phone. Also, we cannot expect much of these issues in this smartphone at a very low price, but while comparing with other, these seem to be drawbacks of the smartphone!

Click here to Check Micromax Yu Yureka User Complaints

1.Display:

The Yu’s Yureka sports a 5.5 inch display which uses an IPS panel with High Definition and thus viewing angles are decent. The display even includes Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection to make the device scratch proof and break resistant to some extent.  But if you have decent amount of knowledge about mobile screen sizes the HD display would make you disappointed on a 5.5 inch Display.

For such a great display size full HD resolution seems necessary.

2.Battery:

Yu’s Yureka has 2500 mAh battery which claims to offer 7 hours of 4G talktime, or 8 hours of 3G talktime, or 9 hours of 2G talk time, or 6 hours of music playback with maximum brightness.But we think the battery backup isn’t quite encouraging as they claim as it has a 4G LTE support and the 5.5 inch display with a power processor which takes lots of juice to run.  So we feel it should have powered by a bigger battery to boost more speed and more working capacity to ‘YU’s Smartphone.

3.Heating Issues 

No Doubt the device is one of the Powerful Beast But the Main Problem Is That It gets Heat While Multitasking and Playing games. Because of the Heating Problem in Micromax Yu yureka many of the users Got worried Assuming Yu yureka Heating Problem A Hardware Failure . But as The device carries High end Features So that Is Pretty Obvious To Have Heat From The Micromax Yu yureka .

4.Yu’s Brand is New Smart Phone Maker

Yu’s is a child of One of the top Indian Smartphone Maker “Micromax” but the thing that to be consider in taking a device from Micromax is the quality of the device in terms of software and Hardware.

A tie-up with Google cannot be a gain for Micromax (Android Canvas A1) there is no point for the end users to believe this device is will be a worthy product .The fight between OPO and Micromax already made the Brand infamous among the tech groups for whom this device is aimed at. There are already rumors whirling around saying that this is a direct clone of coolpad.

5.Sale and Service

The Micromax company has launched its debut product exclusively via Amazon.in this might be a pro and cons for the device.

  • Pros :By using e commerce sites for shopping company did a good thing because according to consumer point of views delivery at door-steps, price of product as no third party profits are added at time of purchase should be brought onto considerations
  • Cons: This phone cannot reach to a typically country man of our country. We should think once again to get this phone as the services given by Micromax. All the people who have used Micromax once in their lifetime are pretty known with time period the take.

The YU YUREKA comes in Moonstone Grey color and is priced at Rs. 8,999. It will be available exclusively on Amazon.in and registrations will start on December 19th at 2PM. It goes on sale in the second week of January 2015. It will only be available online. The company will sell leather cover and tempered glass separately. It has unlockable boot loader and offers warranty even if the phone is rooted. It will also release kernel source code. It also offers free repair or replacement at doorstep.

Update: Friends we are not against the Mobile or Micromax, we just listed some of the drawbacks of the mobile. Every mobile has few drawbacks that doesn’t mean you should not buy the mobile but we are just letting you know few reasons why you should not buy the mobile. However, if you are willing to buy the mobile, here we made a tutorial on How to Buy Micromax Yu Yureka on Amazon India- Click Here
