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.

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.

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.

The Micromax company has launched its debut product exclusively via 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.
