5 Reasons Why you Shouldn’t Buy Micromax Yu “Yureka”

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!

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.

Micromax-YU-Yureka display


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 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 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.

    1. These reviews are biased.. Dont go with xiaomi, extremely lower quality products.. Multiple issue..
      But cnt comment on one plus

      1. xiaomi is any day better than micromax they make their own phones unlike micromax who just sell rebranded phones !!

        1. The phone is good. As good as Xiaomi if not better. I have used Xiaomi Redmi 1S and Redmi Note. MI3 is the only Xiaomi phone which stands out for value for money, but that again doesnt have expandable storage.

        1. I heared that the speaker is very quite, even the ringtone is not enough audible during the incoming call. The call quality is very poor.
          Is it true??

        2. i am using micromax yu yureka
          when i am reciving call it rcive easily
          but my screen not open again
          please rely me
          in which setting the screen is opens when call is going on
          please send me your mobile numbers i will call you

          1. i am using micromax yu yureka
            when i am reciving call it rcive easily
            but my screen not open again
            please rely me
            in which setting the screen is opens when call is going on
            please send me your mobile numbers i will call you

          2. The blank (or black) screen during calls is caused by the Proximity Senor of the phone. It is a hardware issue with the sensor as its detection is not as robust as it needs to be. Calibrating the proximity sensor manually can fix or at least reduce the occurrence of Blank Screen during incoming and outgoing calls. Follow these steps to calibrate the Proximity Sensor on your Yureka.

            This only applies to users who have updated to CM12/Android Lollipop. If you haven’t yet, check the update instructions here.
            Open the DialPad on your Yureka
            Dial *#*#7769#*#*
            In the proximity calibration screen, tap on StartStart Calibration Yureka Cyanogen 12
            Wait a few seconds till it reads Calibration Good (in green)calibration good yureka cyanogen 12
            Tap Exit and you’re good to go.
            That’s it. Most likely you won’t face the issue on the next call that you receive. If you still face it, make sure that there is no dust or screen protector covering the Proximity Sensor. Then restart your phone and consider repeating the steps again.
            this will fix your proximity sensor problem9screen not turning on after you make a call)

          3. Hi. I have a yureka phone. The phone does not detect when linked with a USB. What should I do. I caanot transfer any data directly from my phone to other devices.

          4. Yes, I’m also using a Yureka phone, after finishing of call i unable to cut the call because of black scren,
            and HEATING is very bad first i thought it is only in summer only, If i used inter net while charging it get heat very bad.
            For these quotations Micromax only tell the answers……………..

          5. you just need to do one thing , tight the backside screw of phn. So your phn will be strt getting on.

      2. Yes..this review is biased.all the problems are relative.5.5 inch display with high resolution..what does it mean by not satisfactory !! Heating problm is not that sensitive because it comes with a strong processor..Worst blogger..

        1. please turn off your location settling in camera located on camera screen by clicking on second last option .you can see the icon of location

        1. It is a good phone. Any day better than Xiaomi at this price point. Xiaomi has a great camera, in fact an awesome camera. But over all a a telecom engineer I would recommend you Yu.

    2. this guy who wrote the post hates micromax & yu from his heart
      you can go ahead and buy this phone its great
      and the 3 point says it supports 4g so whats bad in it

      1. There is hardly any difference between 2g and 3g in this part of world. Forget 4g. Corollas with a different brand name is yureka. So don’t spoil your hard earned money buying such a crap.

      2. 3G is no spread all-over and provide service not upto the mark, so how we can expect 4G service.

      3. Sir, Can you please guide me by a step by step demonstration right from unpacking, as I have just received the package containing Yu Yureka and don’t want to do anything risky? In particular, two stickers, mentioning “Step 1 This sticker helps remove the mask from the screen protector, Peel this mask off and apply this side down on your screen” and “Step 2 This sticker helps remove the mask from the screen potector, Peel this mask off once the screen protector is applied” are confusing.


    3. Ur review sucks dude… this guy just blames the phone . Don’t take this review as a count a.just go for it. Try something new and its 9k and excellent value for money..

      1. You are right and I think that micromax should allow buyers to choose the capacity of the battery ie. If a person needs more battery life he should be provided with a higher mah battery at a suitable price so that such people don’t have to complain about it

          1. I’m using micromax YU yureka since 1month..till today I have no complains regarding my phone..but suddenly today…I lost my phones display while it is charging…pls tell me d cost of YU yureka display cost…

          1. Dear
            I am using YU yurka from last 2days. I have reliance 3g network but I am not able to browsing and whatsapp video without WiFi. Please suggest some tips for resolve it.

    4. You mustn’t buy one plus one because it won’t give you any future updates.. Cynogenmods supports onlyYu in India.. This review is pointless and for the price yureka is a better phone. Which phone has this much specs under 15k

      1. No dude…the person reviewing the phone meant that video call is not natively present in d fon…i.e. when u open a contact from ur contact list…options such as Message,Call,mail are directly present there…in this fon…all other options except Video Call wud b there…but u can obviously call someone thru skype etc. if ur network conditions are sufficiently good!

        1. Exactly….apps such as skype, viber, fb messanger etc runs very smoothly on this.Go ahead try it…you won’t be disappointed.

    5. Listen first of all it has a removable battery nd i’m prettey sure that after saving alot of money and yes alot coz its direct competitor is one plus one or maybe only you can buy a new battery with more capacity and yes it does support skype and reviewing some youtube channels and sites so yes maybe video calling too
      Its main prob. is battery which i told a sol. this is the JUGAAD I would suggest because a phone at such a cost u cant miss it

    6. Hey
      This review is very biased.

      For instance the battery life is not just a factor of mAH capacities, it also depends on how efficient your OS is to use the power of the battery.

      Please read some other comparisons, to me the phone looks a direct competition for Redmi Note.

      Have you registered already?

    7. hey I’m currentlu using oneplus one. its a great phone for such price. smooth operation, great juice. only sad thing, cynogen mode not available for further updates.

    8. This review doesnt make any sense for not buying mmx yu. He should talk about other thing like phone spec , heat up issue, performance .

      moron guy…

    9. See guys! Don’t even go with Xiaomi bcz it transfers all your to china. Indian Air Force has banned it in India. I am a son of IAF Airmen and i know the sensitivity of IAF data. So hope you will keep in mind this comment.

    10. Micromax yureka is chinese mobile,so,don’t purchase micromax yureka mobile,,xiaomi mobile ki trh isme bhi koi complaint aa skti hai,china me bna mobile aapke account ko hack kr skta hai,,shayad pr ban lga skti hai.

      1. Bhai.., Micromax is an Indian brand!!! Who told u it’s a Chinese one… Just check on d Internet before spreading such rumours…!!!

        1. Micromax is indian company accepted but its products are not indian indian.
          They just rebrand. Search for coolpad f2. It is the same phone.
          Software and design by Micromax and made in china. Is it the case ?
          No it is completely designed and developed in china and then micromax put its yu sticker.

          Well it is also a bussiness model. And if they can provide cheaper phones in india with this model, it is perfectly fine.

      2. Micromax is an Indian consumer electronics company headquartered in Gurgaon, Haryana, India.[1] Micromax started as an IT software company in 2000 and worked on embedded platforms. It entered the mobile handset business, and became one of the largest Indian domestic mobile handsets company operating in low cost feature phone segments by 2010.[2] As of Q3 2014, Micromax is the tenth largest Smartphone vendor in the world

    11. Its an amazing phone!!
      GIVEN THE PRICE RANGE and all its features one should go buy this phone with their eyes closed!

    12. If you’ve got the dough, go for IPhone for all that anyone cares. But for 9K, Yureka is phenomenal.

    1. Actually,mah capacity is not all… proper
      Optimization of the battery also matters…
      After all, I once saw a iPhone that had
      1800 mah battery,and was priced rs.50000

  1. Hey guys dont belive this review… This phone is a really awesome phone with great price tag… Let me give the correct review of this phone:-
    1 Display: YU Yureka has 5.5″ 720p screen which is fair enough. I ve also seen a phone with 480p having 6″ of screen and believe me it looks very good.
    2 Battery: Yureka has a 2500 mah of battery which is enough for a whole day. It has Qualcom Snapdragon 615 processor which saves more battery than Qualcom Snapdragon 800.
    3 Supports 4g: I dont understand why 4g would a drawback. 4g is a very nice feature of Yureka. 4g is available in india in some places only. If somebody wants to TRY 4g network then whats wrong with this.
    4 YU’s brand is new smart phone maker: Everybody knows that the Micromax is a largest phone selling company in india. Micromax always makes phone with highest features with very less price compared to other companies like Samsung, Sony, etc. YU is a new brand of Micromax and YU have add something more interesting in Phones than compared to other micromax phones like Cyanogenmod which is the best custom rom in the world.
    5:Sale and Service: As you all know that Yureka will only be available in and thats why the price is very very less because it removes the intermediate. It also offers warranty even if the phone is rooted means you can do anything to your phone and it will effect on warranty.
    Dont go with this review because its totally a Shit. There are many reviews available on youtube and other sites. Just go and see them and you ll definately buy this phone.

      1. Yeah, this reiew is totally shit, shit and shit. See, MMX is an Indian Company and it is running in full throttle. None other than MMX dared to go for a CYANOGEN MOD, not even big brands(except OnePlus One).If you are an INDIAN then go for this phone. Exeptional specs @8999. Cheers for the legacy MMX. And also Pojja’s review is far better than the main ‘Review’.

        1. Buddy, This is just re-branded version of “Coolpad f2” which is again a Chinese phone manufacturer. No research done by Micromax for producing this phone. So owning this device not gonna make you Indian, no doubt for such a low price it’s surely a “must by” but as far as I know Micromax lacks quality and it’s display sucks (sub 200ppi for 5.5 inch), Yeah but this phone is good for college going students and Android developers who can play around this phone (as it’s very low at price)


    2. Wow, cant beleive a girl knows this much about the phone ( not stereotyping, but usually girls are not updated about latest technology ). Every word you said is true. Dont know why the article is so biased against this phone which is great value for money. Of course I will wait for initial reviews but won’t find fault with anyone who just buy as soon as the phone is out since it is only 9000 rs and worth the risk.

    3. i think d reviewer is correct in saying about the quality of services micromax provides, it’s total shit! But with Yu you never know and for 9k and such good specs..ek try toh banta hi he 😉

      1. best phone in india with lowest price which is my micromax mobile. whis is very smooth slim and good weight with nice 5.5 inch screen to show the excellent standard of man

    4. Yes u r right Pooja, This guys say Its worst But i had used many handset of MMX currently I had also used MMX UNITE 2 It was the Best, Guys believe me Samsung and other branded phone hang badly while operating large application but MMX never. MMX is really making awesome phone with low price tag. Go for Yureka It will be best one I am waiting for this phone and really excited to test cyanogen mod 11.

    5. I can see that u work for Mmx! Let me tell you one thing, the battery seriously sucks! 2500 mah is in no way awesome to power a smartphone. I also doubt the build qualified and it’s lifetime. The only good thing about this is Cyanogenmod.

    6. Hi.. I have bought this ph. M using reliance3g network but internet is not working….. 🙁 plz suggest me for inetrnet settings in yureka..

      1. Hi..
        i want purchase Micromax yuraka, Please suggest purchase or not.
        what is drawback of this phone

      2. Hello friends,
        I am using reliance 3G net but not working in my mobile can anyone tell me his to fix dis problems.

    7. Micromax phone is the worst phone ever…its the phone for the first time smart phones user….go with Apple if u can afford it

    8. I agree with you, the review provided by this website is bullshit, I am using this device since 2 weeks and one word i can say its awesome. No prblms at all. proximity n network issues are fixed with latest update.

    9. hi guys,i want 2 know abt it~s batrry back up and abt it’s heating problem and display .

    10. Yes, I’m also using a Yureka phone, after completing of call i unable to cut the call because of black screen, And HEATING is very bad first I thought it is only in summer only, If I used internet while charging it get heat very bad.
      For these quotations Miramax only tell the answers……………..

  2. Micromax(YU) is better to TRUST than these china phones –>xiaomi & One Plus One.
    would u expect xiaomi or One Plus One to give service within warranty period,answer is no.
    they specify in e-commerce sites they give warranty but they dont bother at all(i also mean all mobile companies).even if they give service they will return ur phone with another problem.
    My Suggestion is not to buy any china mobiles buy only INDIAN company mobiles .

    1. Micromax is also a Chinese company. Everybody has a wrong conception that its an Indian company.

        1. Micromax is an Indian company getting phones manufactured from China. The phone manufacturing is contracted to various Chinese phone manufacturing vendors.

      1. Sushil….you have any quarry about MMX… You will see MMX wiki…OK..then ask the question.

    2. Better to pay to an Indian other than a foreigner
      Let our money stay in India we had enough with foreigners in the past

      1. This is the bad idea…If people in our country sell the bad products to us…why we need to support them…this concept will never make out country go forward…. Look at Australia, do they need this kind of companys to be a develop coutry.

        1. People with the idea like this make our country become so bad…Our country need the competition so we can get the best products

  3. 5.5″screen should have fhd(also better if disply quality not like budget type) also touch reponce of micromax not so good so far..should revise specs like recmmded 5″disply(ltps prefferd),3500mAh good for snpdrgn octa paired wth 2gb ram. pro version at about 12000rs

  4. Thanks a lot man!
    But your review only makes me want to buy the phone a lot more!!
    Keep up the good work!!!
    Negative reviews/opinions like yours makes the potential users aware of a product ahead of time, so that they can enjoy it thoroughly.

    1. Dude it has a sony EXMOR sensor with a 5- lens architecture + Largan Blue lens. If you do understand what i mean. This camera is superb.

    2. Xiaomi mobiles have pathetic camera quality.
      The sound quality is awful. The microphone records even the wind so intensely that it disturbs the entire sound of the video.
      Coming to the other specs, Xiaomi has only got a thumbs down.

  5. Who the hell has written this….
    if there is 4g whats bad in it….
    n hello z4 compact, has even has a hd screen.
    t2 ultra n a lot more have the same….
    n it looks real good….
    ans in one word r u mad

  6. This phone has dual sim. Is it dual standby or dual active. None of the reviews seem to mention this.

  7. Hi Guys,

    “5 Reasons Why you Shouldn’t Buy Micromax Yu “Yureka””

    total Waste of review.

    guys .. specification says lot about product.

    go and buy the product if you have done the registration.

    this mobile lot of functionalities compared to other mobiles in this price range.

    And Micromax will not simply launch anything in the INDIAN market.

    In my family , we have 3 micromax smart phone, all are working superb . So no making hip about the quality of MMX phone .

    go and grab it.
    best luck.

  8. This guy has written only for the sake of writing.. learn to appreciate bro… Micromax is doing a great job.. I have been using their phone since two years.. everything is fine..

  9. Phone kafi achha hai..leken kya ye phone khali online hi milega??kya kabhi mobile stores me ayega ye phone??

    1. Mera bhi ye question tha ? Yu yureka kab mobile shop me kharid sakta hu ?? Koi bata sakta hai ?? Plz anyone tell me plz…

  10. What rubbish ….micromax YU will shake off the mobile market and it will beat off almost any phone priced even about 25000+

  11. Crap … Great Man .. NICE SENSE OF HUMOUR ..

    You are comparing Hyundai with BMW ..

    Atleast learn to fo a proper comparison .. Yu @ 9k and one plus one @ 21k .. Added advantage with Yu .. U r getting a nice earphone .. One plus one has no earphone.. Guys don’t get carried away with all such reviews .. If you are planning to buy a budget phone till 15 k .. This is the best option …

    I am going to buy it on 13 Jan only so that I get a free leather case .. DON’T MISS IT BOSS …

  12. China phone karidh ke
    1. Health kharaab kar hein kya?
    2. Kapde iron kar naa hein kya?
    3. Patent law kaa ullanghaan kar ke, baad mein bhina support ka rahna hein kya?

    Year 2015 mein bhi 4G network expect nahi kar sakthe hein kya?
    Agar quality photo kech naa hein tho, CANON, SONY, NIKON ka camera purse mein leke gumo, but don’t expect it in any mobile camera

  13. All potential non buyers can back off reading this shit review..This only increases chances of genuine buyers…remember this company got Hugh jack man to endorse for them. …okay…you got it..even tiger woods vouches for a shitty ____moto Corp! !!

  14. lol a simple thing i just wana ask to the person who posted this .. How much money did u get frm th Chinese mobile phne makers for posting this shit ? dnt u knw xiaomi ws banned in india .. u fool .. am a micromax user and am 100% satisfied wit it and alot do .. i was th user of canvas fun currently using knight & nva faced any issue .. the only thing is many shits lyk u dnt evn knw hw to use a smartphne & starts to cmnt against thm & if itz indian product dnt knw u guys react lyk shits & support Chinese or other products

    1. That right guys..BIASED column, seems like a paid by OPO (Everyone knows why!!!) or XIAOMI….!!! Otherwise the writer wouldn’t ridiculously summarize the column as” 5 reasons why you shouldn’t by Micromax Yu “Yureka” (Drawbacks)”

      In just 140 USD / 8999 INR, you will get contract free custom android OS armoured device which has:
      *5.5-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass class 3 protection
      *Octa-Core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 (MSM8939) (ARM Cortex A53 – 4×1.5GHz + 4×1.0GHz) processor with Adreno 405 GPU
      *2GB DDR3 RAM, 16GB internal memory, expandable memory up to 32GB with microSD
      *Dual SIM
      *CyanogenMod OS 11 based on Android 4.4 (KitKat) with constant future proof OS updates due to strong harware
      *13MP rear camera with LED Flash, 5P lenses, Sony Exmor RS IMX135 sensor, f/2.2 aperture, 1080p at 30fps, 720p slow motion at 60fps, 5MP selfie camera, OmniVision 5648 sensor, 4P lenses, 71-degree wide viewing angle
      *4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
      *2500mAh battery, 8 hrs talktime, 210 hrs standby

      The best thing is, it is all from INDIA our country!!


  15. This guy is totally nuts. I have used mmx funbook P300… 7inch display at 800*480 resolution and tell you what… It didn’t bothered me at all. Now we have a HD Display for 5.5 Inch… it’s really better!

  16. This phone has superb specifications for the price …… Only thing that bothers me is it has exact same specification as that of chinese phablet coolpad f2

    1. Don’t compare it with Chinese clone COOLPAD F2, as MMX YUREKA has robust Octa-Core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 but the COOLPAD F2 has cheap MediaTek MT6592.

  17. Well we should keep one thing in mind while purchasing this phone, what can you expect more from a device priced at 8999/-. even samsung galaxy note 2 has the same specs ( screen size, ppi, processor clock rate, cpu cores, ram and even yu doesnt have unnecessary bloatware what samsung has. so maximised performance). what described for yureka yu is same except for the battery 3100 mah ( note 2). Note 2 performance was a monstrous beast…everyspec is absolutely same with yureka yu and even yureka yu uses cyanogen and qualcomm cpu and gpu ( more energy efficient when compared to note 2 ). well coming with the 4G it is your choice to enable or disable, so no problem either. The only con would be if it was a manufacturing defect. so believe me guys go for it- speaking with experience.

  18. I have several micromax phones and these are good to experience. Another plus point in buying micromax is that it is made by an indian firm

  19. Its an indian made, we should elate it should not degrade nake d custmrs to buy chinese mobiles.we should be proud that our indian company is providing the cheapest LTE mobile

  20. Lol this is such a biased article. Since when did making a 4G phone become a crime? Wow. This phone is amazing. It’s cheap because it’s RIGHTLY priced. But perhaps some people are fine with buying a phone for 40k only to see it selling at 22k a year later.

  21. chill guys the reviewer is a certain kind of blogger who uses his SEO techniques to get traffic to this page so they earn in the form of ads,and my dear content creator pls get a life bro,what more features u get at this price range so u will support China xiaomi atleast support Indian brands,Imran uddin remove this post keep geninue one

    1. micromax doesnt make phones they just resell low quality chinese phone thats y pathetic service they just put stickers in India xiaomi makes their own phones

  22. BIASED column, seems like a paid by OPO (Everyone knows why!!!) or XIAOMI….!!! Otherwise the writer wouldn’t ridiculously summarize the column as” 5 reasons why you shouldn’t by Micromax Yu “Yureka” (Drawbacks)”

    Note: Don’t compare it with Chinese clone COOLPAD F2, as MMX YUREKA has robust Octa-Core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 but the COOLPAD F2 has cheap MediaTek MT6592.

  23. its a best ever phone in this segment at a very affordable compared to xiomee redme note4g its giving u more features like dual sim .kikat with Cyanagon and octacore processor which is not available in redme note

  24. well, simply put this phone looks like good value for money. as for the battery issue, power banks are quite cheap these days. But i would still reserve my final views until i get it in Jan…

  25. If I were you I wouldn’t get my hopes up.

    Here are some of the drawbacks from my point of view.

    1. The screen is not full HD: Sure there isn’t much difference between HD and FHD but just take it outside under the direct sunlight and you’ll see my point.

    2. 4G: There was truly no need of 4G as only few people use this. In my opinion 4G is provided here to just make the phone different. Rather then doing this they should have provided some more improvements.

    3. 2500 mAh battery: This is very disappointing. No matter what claims the company or others make you won’t be able to go throughout the day with moderate usage using this battery. This is mainly because of the 4G antenna, dual sim and the large screen size.

    4. Camera: Like Xiaomi and others the quality of camera is obviously going to be crap. Zoom a picture few times and it will start tearing apart and fading.

    5. Snapdragon 615: If you see the reviews of this processor the benchmarks are lower then MTK 8 core CPUs. MTK 8 core CPUs are crap and this one is even more crappier. Off-course you won’t notice a difference as a normal user but power users will be disappointed. Apart from this the processor has a 64 bit architecture but its useless in 2GB of RAM in order to use the full capabilities of a 64 bit processor you need at-least 3 GB of RAM. So this is just a marketing gimmick.

    6. Audio quality: This phone does have 24 bit audio but there is no mention of the type of the audio like Dolby digital, SRS wow or other specifications. Keeping this in mind the audio output will be disappointing.

    I am pretty sure there won’t be any issues with the look and feel of the phone which is what majority of users want but the stuff which is under the hood and which really matters like battery, processor speed, camera and audio quality will be disappointing at this cost.

    Micromax is not here to serve you or the country. Its a fact that they are a crap brand and they are trying to move away from that image by offering you something which is crap internally but looks great. Keep in mind that the company has to make a profit. I am pretty dam sure that many people will be disappointed when this phone goes for sale. The company has closed registrations one day earlier as they didn’t had enough stock. You are going through the same experience and disappointment as with MI3 from Xiaomi when it was up for sale.

    1. i would better go with a snapdragon than a mediatek in spite of marginally lower benchmark because snapdragon is open source. As for 4g, its a great feature and you can expect 4g networks to increase drastically in the coming years. I agree with your point of 64 bit archetecture though, however we should also keep in mind that it consumes lesser ram than 32 bit, and getting a gig of free ram isnt that bad. For build quality, i have no experience with xiaomi but have used a mmx canvas doodle and it has served GREAT for one and a half year and running fine, minimal lag with 512 mb ram, samsung on the other hand gave me headache, so PLEASE DONT JUST THROW DIRT ON MMX. Also, the 8mp cam of the doodle was quite good(obviously you cant expect an i phone 6 cam). And as far as the flash sale and limited stocks goes, how can it be the fault of handset?????. Also the price is so low because the handset has been assembled in china where manufacturing cost is very low.

  26. This guy didn’t proved why one shouldn’t buy this… Why he is hatred about micromax… I think one should go for yureka according to features they are claiming and mainly the price tag….

  27. really superb mobile in this price…..
    i bought Samsung galaxy note 3 (made in Korea) in Rs.7800 no guaranty no warranty….
    “is mobile se accha to Yureka mobile he” with warranty… and pure indian brand…. i will buy this mobile….. i am not agree with this review…

    1. are comparing note 3 with MMx. It is sufficient to know how gud is ur intellect.
      I’m nt concerned abt dis phone…bt I own a note 3 n i knw wat it is.

      1. @susheel
        i said i bought samsung galaxy note 3 made in korea mobile…. thats not original samsung galaxy mobile…..
        there is in Korean mobile camera quality like china mobile and poor battery so i want to say i bought this mobile in Rs7800 without warranty then why should I miss this mobile, which has good camera, storage, RAM, screen and all coming with warranty

  28. This Review Sucks………….
    If Micromax launches a 3 Ghz 16-core Qualcomm snapdragon processor with 4 GB RAM, 128 GB Internal Memory, 42 MP/16 MP camera, 7000 mAh battery for 25,000 rs……. U again gonna give ‘Boo’ to it.. Because U guys are looking only the Brand Name..
    Aren’t you Guys Take account of Price????
    Im gonna Buy This………
    coz, im lovin’ it… and I AM AN INDIAN…..

    1. A great great round of applause for all u Guys…Well said….Please see the price tag and then think over its specifications …we all will buy MMX YU…….
      Please Guys ‘Be Indian Buy Indian and also Promote Indians’ then only our Country will be stream lined with the Countries like Japan, China and US.

      1. Haha support the bad companys ,so will be a fool in international community… Micromax is not my father..if they want me to support…they need to make the products better first…if u want us to use only Indian companies… Why we don’t close our country and use only Indian products and no competition… The companies have no nationality… Behind Micromax sure the investors are foreign country.

  29. Considering the price, its awesome. ….
    If compare with Xiaomi Mi3 or other mobiles, which cost much much higher than Yu, its a credit to Yu and discredit to other mobiles. The comparison issue comes when both are in same level……
    If drawbacks required to find out from power-packed, ultra low priced ‘Yu’, its also a credit to ‘Yu’ as the lovers of other high end mobiles feeling jealous !!

  30. LOLZ!

    folks, just look at the comments! I truly believe this review is sponsored by Micromax themselves… cant you see a pattern guys? a weak, blatant and unjustified review that attracts so much traffic and comments in support of YUREKA, isnt that a blessing for a new brand coming fresh into the market?

    While I am eagerly waiting for the YU device to be launched and would like to lay my hands on one, I am amazed to see such campaigns that generate a lot os buzz and capture a considerable amount of mindshare of netizens..


  31. mmx is Indian brand and if An Indian does something extraordinary then it’s always awesome to c that happening moreover mmx is well kniw brand using canvas 4 from last 2 years no complaints nothing at all so now wana try custom rom cynogenmod without rooting my device so here is the deal mmx lady bird yu
    one more thing I love to mention here if someone likes one plus one which is china maal at its full and others too get half the things done in china so why not an Indian brand can take over these giants
    I’m very excited about the yu already register for the same on amazon and eagerly waiting for the 13th jan
    best of luk to RAhul Sharma
    keep it up guys we Indians rocks.

  32. HI,

    please dont miss guide the people which is not correct. So many people are showing interest to buy this including me…
    Are you a dealer or working for xiomi or one plus one .. ?

    Boss the phone is looking to like a Legend in the market. who ever wants to use 4G or 3g or 2g he has given the option and Camera which is not DLSR its afterall a phone.. should not expect more Camera features if u want go for DLSR any brand… which ever is feasible… ITS AN INDIAN BRAND(home country)….. NOT A CHINA BRAND….WE NEED TO SUPPORT ” MAKE IN INDIA” PRODUCTS, not OUSTSIDE shit….

    Its good phone obviously… Gr8 deal.. I already registered if i get that phone I am lucky .. I am planning to gift this phone to my Sweet heart….


    1. Dear Sairam,

      While I agree to your point that the phone is fantastic…but micromax doesnt manufacture its phones in India…its in china with all chinese materials… so your argument of supporting MAKE IN INDIA is unwarranted and cancelled.

  33. Is there any exchange offer? I want to exchange micromax a116 .one year old only.if offer is there then i immediately buy this mobile phone.pls reply me.

  34. Your review is practical dude i agree with your 1st three points but i think the reason they are launching this product on amazon exclusively because they are worried about its success. Like you said in 4th point they failed get proper response from canvas a1. so i think its a business strategy to avoid what happened with canvas a1. If they receive a good feedback abut YU then they will definitely launch next Yu phone in stores as well.

  35. Dude . seriously I’m laughing on the reviews that u have written . are u mad or what .. Almost 9k. And such features.. In fact cyanogen is more like a free ware … N yureka is giving u warranty even if u root ur phone.
    Camera specs,4g ssupport,octacore processor. HD display..

    Lol. Lame reviews . :p

  36. This kid doesnt know how to compare something… unless you used it.. so dear kid just wait and i m sure you are too going to have it… i know i am right

    1. It will run without any problem, it is high-end device so it can easily run most of the game easily!

  37. Except for last sales/service point, nothing is valid in this article. 5.5 inch display is sufficient for 1080p videos. Whom are you kidding? Author, do you have any knowledge on resolution and displays!? 2500mAh battery is quite decent for any smart phone. and 4G is plus point in current senario.

    The author just wrote article for sake of hits.

  38. Once I made a mistake of buying a Micromax handset. At the beginning, micromax seems so impressing. Buy once you start using it, you will know how it sucks! I ran to the service centre the second day……..they replaced it with a new phone after 3 days. Since then I visited atleast 6-7 times to the service centre within a span of 1 year!!!!! Then you know what – I stopped visiting the service centre and just threw the handset in the drain. It felt so peaceful!
    My advise is – never buy a micromax handset, it is nothing but a piece of junk. Rather pay little more and buy any other brand.

  39. Think from the pointt of view a native brand is giving all the international brands a run for their money MR. AUTHOR.

  40. This straightaway sounds like a paid review. Whatever you have writyen is crystal clear to buyers beforehand. So its bang for buck @ 9k.

  41. bhaiyo phone dhasu h jo nhi leka vo to pachataega.
    koiki isme h 4g
    16 gb internal
    2 gb ram
    13 mp & 5 mp camera
    andreno 405
    sirf 9k m bas pir bi intane gande comment dub k mar jao

  42. In my point of view Micromax is doing good job and they improved their quality very well the review is also good except that quality thing, at this price I think it beats many big brands, spending too much money for a phone just for the big brand is baseless for common man.

  43. I dont understand..
    You mention 4G LTE as a reason not to buy this phone?!!.. At 8999 rs.. its more than better and you say,”specs are not flashy”… you’ve got to be kidding. snapdragon 615 at this price is a catch…you’ve to educate yourself with whats new in the mobile world…..

  44. Guys, I would say that it is more than perfect for this price point.
    Pros: Just answer me who would give you 64 bit processor (qualcomm indeed) with 2 GB of ram as of now with such a light topping like cyanogen on android?
    Cons: About display I think that 5.5 inch display is rather too big or at least they should improve battery back up as I have no doubts that this phone will be power hungry.

  45. Hello readers,

    In the battle of budget phones i think Micromax has already taken the trophy the above review is just an entirely thrash against micromax.

    1) The processor Snapdragon 615 is a power house Since its a 64 bit CPU which will be a essential piece of Hardware when all the phones in the market start recieving Lolipop update This CPU will manage this update but for all the older snapdragons and MTeks it would be a struggle even to recieve the update.
    The 4G feature is not an addition actually this is a bundled feature since all snapdragon new CPU’s will have 4G support now Indian manufacturers like Micromax wont ask Qualcom to make different CPUs for their 3G market (STUPID guy who gave that REVIEW).

    2) Screen Size and quality i must admit 5.5″ is stupidity as 4.7-5.0″ is well suited for indian hands and that would have given the resolution a better look anyways this isnt a drawback it still is great.

    3) ONLY FLAW with MICROMAX Battery 2500MAh !!! are you serious Xiaomi gives 3200MAh which lasts good for snapdragon 400 CPUs but this CPU is 64bit thus is a power hungry this wont long the entire day.

    Overall a very good phone BEATS all the others in terms of pricing.
    I would defintely buy this.

    1. “The 4G feature is not an addition actually this is a bundled feature since all snapdragon new CPU’s will have 4G support now Indian manufacturers like Micromax wont ask Qualcom to make different CPUs for their 3G market (STUPID guy who gave that REVIEW).”

      The CPU supports 4G capabilities that means that it can high speed data supported to 4G networks. But moron you need other parts like a 4G antenna, 4G sim tray and a board that can support 4G channels. It’s not like you can just put this processor on a 3G phone and you’ll convert it to 4G phone. Of-course there are other parts and cost involved. So when I said 4G was an overkill I was mentioning the whole package not just the processor. Who’s the idiot now smart ass?

  46. how can we know that we have subcribed to the yu yurekha mobile in Amazon…….i had hit on subscribe button..but i didn’t get any mail regarding this..can u plz help me guyz….

  47. In my opinion this review is totally biased..For a phone for INR 8999,the specifications is fine.
    Tell me one thing, why having 4G support is considered a drawback.Agree 4G network is not widespread in India, but that should not deter anyone from buying the device.
    YU is not a new company. It is a sister concern of Micromax.
    Battetry : 2500mAh should work fine for this phone considering it has Snapdragon 615 chipset(unlike Mediatek chipsets which hogs battery).
    Display : Do you have problem with the device having Gorilla glass protection??
    Service : Whether you buy a MMX device or a overpriced Samsung phone, service is literally absent.
    Warranty will not void if you root the device and flash a custom ROM.
    Sales : i will agree with the Admin on this point only : MMX is going into Flash sale model.This reduces the availability of device to the end customer.
    Overall this is a very good device. All those who have registered, best of luck in ordering the device on Jan 13th 2015

    1. Buddy it will be available on from 13 of January sale will be starting from 2 pm so keep online and i am sure it will be going to stock out in seconds

  48. Excellent suggestions given for the product , but just to let you know Micromax has probably beaten every other company in regards to Price, Quality, Services & everything in the smartphone industry. The specifications given for the phone is possibly one of the best presently avaialble now. With the new CyanogenMod even makes it better & fully customizable that in turn means more power. So my suggestion to everyone go for the phone in case if you like it because under 10Ks budget no one would give you phone with a GOLDEN body 🙂

  49. hey i don’t go with you as the services of micromax are the best in india compared to the samsung and nokia.
    if so what of xiaomi who has no service center at all…..

  50. Seems like people are only cosidering price and spec not battery.

    Sorry to say,

    Marrying a girl and let her nude on bed and watching from 3ft away
    is equals to me, buying a phone and watching its slept with out battery charge.

    its just my opinion.

  51. This review doesnt make any sense for not buying mmx yu. He should talk about other thing like phone spec , heat up issue, performance .

    moron guy…

  52. Mr. Udhaya,
    Taking on external battery in just 599 INR will solve your battery issue.
    8999+599 = 9598 in this price Yureka is not bad.

  53. Hello alltechbuzz people,, with out using it how u people are going to comment on it. that to most of reasons(among 5) are meaning less. dont blame on some one who are trying to deliver costliest products with nice cost. Example one plus one company is taking too much cost for same specification mobile and there profits are huge because beyond 9000 how much they will get all they will convert to dollars and send back to there countries. But Micromax is not like that it’s Indian brand.If they get profils also they will Invest in India it self. For that we have to proud.

    Thank you Micromax for providing huge specifications with very less cost ,,,

  54. I completely agree with the comments… this guy clearly goes by big brand names and underestimates micromax…
    All the points are more or less insignificant…. trust me , the 720p screen resolution looks good even on 7 inch tablets…
    but I am a little concerned about the battery backup…2500 mAH for 4g & 3g with 5.5 inch screen and octa core processor seriously looks a little short.. You should check the battery backup before taking any desicions….

  55. Is this phone worth the money, I was seriously thinking to buy this phone! :/
    This review has made me confused and I am now confused whether I should buy Redmi 4g note or this one!

    1. You can download & update all your installed/preinstalled apps(gapps & other apps too) using this CUSTOM OS integrated GOOGLE PLAYSTORE. As like any other usual ANDROID OS device, the playstore takes care of all apps similarly in this case too. I am already using this CYANOGENMOD 11 (ANDROID 4.4.4 KITKAT version) on my SAMSUNG GALAXY S2. Thanx to CM OS, I have not a single reason to replace my smartphone.

  56. I guess the only negative point about the phone will be the hardware which I think Micromax is not that good at otherwise everything seems well and about the 2500 Mah battery you said will be sufficient as the phone does does not have a battery intensive display to drain the power that fast

  57. As u wished and it will be true… This man who is written its bad has his own opinion… Bt ur wish made me to buy this phone that day it will be launched….

  58. really biased review, first time hears a negative review point for a mobile phone due to having LTE(4G) , wondering whether he knows what is 4G. Only drawback is battery even you manage if you can charge twice a day or with powerbank …
    After all for Rs8999 you cant get better than this. i read somewhere its mother model (guess named coolpad) is priced at 13k in China.


  60. I m ltl confuse about the resolution 1280*720 with ppi 264. I think this ppi not enough with 5.5 inches screen. plz someone tell me about this fector. what about the screen but IPS display and gorilla glass is awesome.

  61. oh no i m suprised when i m see this phone nd check out Micromax yureka phone feature i m shocked Micromax is a top brand only 8999/ ggive very god feature loaded phone i m missed on registration but i m not miss again this chance i m waiting for 13 jan when i m buying this phone ufff such a very good phone 2 gb ram 13 mp rear camera nd 5 mp back camera nd very good processer nd good screen size i m buying this phone quickely..

  62. nice review,but needs some things to reconsider.however may be after sale service and display,battery can be disappointment.but battery problems can be solved by power banks.display is fine in this range.and 4g lte is plus point.however there gonna be launches of many lte phones in future.let lte network point it is an indian company.other companies dnt have servers in india.when they have I would like to consider them.I would like to take bet on yureka.

  63. Hy guys. Which is true or false review are u write. Cmpleatly rubish micromax brand is not god. Not cmpaire to brand sony,lg samsung. It’s china brand bt. This is right lot of asumbl made china . bt sony is japanis cmpny matirial and other parts . not to purchase. So its not good quilty. Blur dispay and hlf day bterry bkup.

  74. Hi friends
    In my view this yu looks like so great. The same time Dont trust with Micromax. Its looking like cheater company.
    only one example they forgot the old customrs who is investment with their canvas product. Last year leak one rumors that told micromax canvas product get kitkat update (jan, later march, then july…………….). Almost the year gone still My micromax mobile turbo A250 does not get any update. Totally micromax forgot their old customers. Mean once they sold yu mobile after I am sure no doubt about that they not given proper service

    If any one get Kitkat for A250 turbo please inform also coment please

  75. hi to all

    i am rajesh i wanted to buy this mobile but i have a phobia with this highest radiation and phone heat when if we talking more then half hour.can u pls give a clarity on this point.

  76. The person who posted this is a very jealous of micromax.
    I think the phone has very good performance aspects – such as 64 bit octa core “qualcomm” processor and adreno gpu.

    and all other aspects are descent.

    the only draw back of the phone is that, it has 267 ppi (pixel per inch).
    this means that the display is not upto the mark.
    but at last, when you see 8999/- then you’ll forget this drawback.

    I want to add up one more sentence –
    India supported very well for the Chinese phone maker Xiaomi, even when it had heating issues and all.
    Now when an Indian company is trying to come up, then i suggest you to react positively.

    Thank you 🙂

  77. I own mmx canvas 2 since the day it was launched. Approx 3 years later; today; I don’t find any reason to discard the fone. So my request to all readers is not to believe in the chutiyapa written in the article. I am amazed and amused by seeing point no. 3 – this phone has 4G LTE compatibility and morons see it as a demerit of the hand set.

  78. Guys…. This reviewer should have lost the opportunity of registration to buy this phone out of which he is making sure that few other registered people also loose the opportunity.
    Regarding Micromax hats off to the products. I was the first person to own A110 Canavas2 when it was launched and till today I am proud owner of the same which gives me awesome touch quality and good pictures. MMX has given tough competition with canavas series to biggee player samsung for its galaxy series
    and now……………YU is going to be cut throat competition for MI and one+1

  84. Hi friends
    In my view this yu looks like so great. The same time Dont trust with Micromax. Its looking like cheater company.
    only one example they forgot the old customers who is investment with their canvas product. Last year leak one rumors that told micromax canvas product get kitkat update (jan, later march, then july…………….). Almost the year gone still My micromax mobile turbo A250 does not get any update. Totally micromax forgot their old customers. Mean once they sold yu mobile after I am sure no doubt about that they not given proper service

  85. This phone is really good and at this price battery is a normal thing in a part of its the way the person who want batter battery life please buy “nokia 1200 or lava irius fule or gionee m3 worst phones”

  86. hi guys …dont take any decisions with specs ……it looks great and works fine……better ask a review who owned this mobile
    but sure u can buy this phn……only the things we dont abt this phn is battery backup and camera quality…..other specs are so great for 9k
    mmx rocks in specs

  87. nonsense analysis and i do not see any substantial content in this.
    for Rs9k this guys is expecting the sky on his hand. if you want all the advanced features, let his buy i-phone 6 by paying Rs65-70K

  88. I m using this phone
    phone is awesome but
    battery is draining fastly….
    it gives 4-5 hours backup
    if u use phone or not ..

  89. There is a very good well known psychiatrist in mumbai that I would like to refer to the author of this post.

  90. battery is getting draining fastely, in 2 hrs, phone is getting heated continuesoly with more heat

  91. Hi.. I have bought this ph. M using reliance3g network but internet is not working….. 🙁 plz suggest me for internet settings in yureka..

    1. Reema I also had the same problem when using reliance but now I switched the internet to idea its working very u also start using any other network apart from Reliance.This will slove your problem and then u can surf and download easily.
      I hope this will help you.


  92. This is a nice mobile . Gaming is nice n also the call clarity. It is insane to tell rubbish abt this mobile. Only cons is ringtone sound n camers is not so great as moto g . Apart from that everything is cool .About battery it is better than Moto g 2nd gen. As lollipop update as made moto mobile to hang. As this mobile is cynogen ROM no need to worry abt hanging issue as most of the things is customizable.It is one of the main reason why Cynogen yet to come with lollipop update. I suggest to Go for it . It is best mobile below 13k. More value for lesser price. I was moto g2 user switched to this n feeling good that I made a right choice by selling my old phone . 🙂

    1. My headset not detect to my phone. Please any one suggest me how to activate headset to my yurekha phone

  93. Hii friends,
    Probably this review has been really reviewed. Seen a lot of fight about branding..but to be very frank Micromax is importing YU phones from Chinese factories, which is not something to wonder as phones are generally made in China or Korea (Samsung). Very few things are added in Bangalore. No doubt china is getting huge profit out of YU,,but yess India has a share..
    At 8999 who can expect such a spec ?..really people should feel crazy including myself to buy it..But I have used Cyanogenmod roms since 2012 and have found its instability in many apps and thats mostly because of its over-customization options like Superuser etc. So..GOOD is also BAD.
    About camera quality 13MP rear one will seem to be like 8MP and the front like 2MP. Also the color capture is bad providing a bluish output most of the time.
    Sound issues with ringtone and others have already revealed to be bad which can change minds.
    4G usability is a great option for boosting customers but how many really get a proper 3G in India is a big question.
    Gaming is good undoubted with lesser heat. But battery could have been at least over 2800 mAh to support the last point.
    Finally 5.5 inch display without FHD is not looking good on all reviews of YU. But many companies do make a good resolution even with 1280*720 like Elephone G7 below 10K.
    People will buy it mostly due to lesser availability at flash sell and 9K price tag…But…… 🙂

  94. i am actually amused by this review. It is a totally baseless review and the only thing it aims to do is – create confusion. I am really not sure about the author of this and thereby would just pen down my thoughts.

    It is a FANTASTIC gadget in sub 10,000 category and has some great specifications like Highly customizable Cyanogen OS, LTE Support, 1.5 Ghz Octa Core Processor, 13 Mp ream Camera to name a few.. Coming to 5 reasons of why this should not be bought, i would reply as –

    Display: Capacitive Touch Screen , 16.7 M display.. What do you want more at 8999 ??
    Battery: I would slightly agree on this.. It could have been made better However it is not that bad too.
    Supports 4G LTE: So are we complaining on this? Do i buy a 2G phone then 3G followed by LTE when it rolls out ?? Good Morning!!!!
    Yu’s Brand is New Smart Phone Maker: So what is the problem? i think we all know about Xiomi, OneplusOne , Lenove.. Aren’t all eating up into Samsung n Apple ??
    Sale and Service: Same as above..

    Please don’t impose your views which clearly look likes nothin but a paid reviews.

  95. hi frndss.. im using android 4.4 os. i want to try different ,and i think i should go with yureka.!!
    i got great experience with android 4.4 but is it useful for me..? i mean is their any problem to sharing data(videos,songs) from android to cyanogenmod os or from cyanogenmod to android.
    pls show me correct way..
    i am waiting for your suggestion

    1. @Rajkumar.. Cynogen MOD rom customized for Android only .. Like samsung using touch wiz, lenovo’s vibe ,HTC sense UI..
      These all are ROM’s made to use on top of Android . Hence there is no question of issue in sharing data’s. Good that U asked n let others know this.

      Huh guys I m using Yureka past from 2 weeks , no hang issue so far..

  96. what do u want in 9k₹.. if u want more specifications in smartphone go for iPhone 6plus price more than 60k₹.

  97. too cool smartphone infact best smartphone under 10k that too just priced at rs 8,999 with cyanogenmod operating system superb customization fwatures with amazing canera quality and lots more words are just not enough to say everything so just go and grab one as fast as possible at amazon

  98. My cellphone was on my desk and My VP Asked me whose phone is this I would like to buy this phone ?

    I answered YU…

    I am working from 19 months in this company and first time he asked me something and that was about my phone.

    What else I need to say..

    It’s your choice…

  99. i dont actually think that xiomi is better than Yureka! Yureka has far better standards and is one of the best low budget phones with so many features 🙂

  100. i would really like to recommend this phone to anyone 😀 seriously the best! all my friends have been loving this !

  101. Hi freinds
    I m going to book a micromax yureka
    Is yureka is not runs on android ? If yes than which types of problem’s may be appears?& how and from where can we get a high mh bettry

    1. @Arshad ..
      Coming to your question:

      Yureka is an Android mobile running KitKat Version 4.4.4.. ROM is Cynogen . You can say Cynogen is an UI built on top of Android.Like TouchWiz for samsung ,Sense for HTC, Vibe for lenovo. Only Raw android experience you get in nexus,motorola mobile.

  102. lemme clear the doubts as such which have been reviewed negative fro micromax
    1. yes it doesnt support 1080P…but dude watcha gonna do if its not??most of us use 720 or 360p….and even if it doesnt hell yeah u’ll miss out the vedio??NO i dont think so
    2. camera gives a proper pic even in shaky hands and selfie mode for a 5mp is best enough for 9K…even when its giving slow-mo recording and 1080 at 30 FPS
    3. it has two slots… y go for a redmi when u hav yureka with 3g and 4g(notice it that you not gonna get 4g witihin an year with our so called indian govt)
    4. battery yes can give a little concern with 2500 mah which is 500 less than redmi….but using regular 3g and games will giv you enough 6 to 7 hours blowing your retinas and popping your eyeballs..with even fully charged on battery saving mode…..regular watsapp,facebook,calls,little skype,heavy games will give you enough battery time on a 5.5 display
    5. price comes with the best 5 star deal…8999…man seriously a good hotel dinner dese days is 1200 around….so whatcha expecting?? christmas??
    6. last but not the least GPU Octa cores 16 gb and 2 gb gives you enough space to do whateva crap you want to
    so in my list and the way i squeeze on this issue i see nothing but a great deal for the micromax yureka….only if youre ready to sit online and dat too have a good fortune and get one phone in you cart to proceed out.
    P.S:- those still having issues can go to their ATM’s and but one plus or redmi 4s for 18000 to 21000.
    thanx people

  103. cyianogen mode has some extra battery compressions jest like ios has and so the battery used in this device is jest 2500mah so as comparing to other android smartphones the cyianogen mod yu yureka will have about 3000mah battery power inside
    the battery is jest fine hear

  104. say it what ever you want to say ..a chinese rebranded coolpad f2 or what far as i know who the hell is using indian brand is korean .. lg also another country .. moto .. are all other company from abroad .. and i am proud to be indian and will buy indian. why should i waste money on branding like samsung while i am getting same specs on yureka..even highend phones say that theay are made in some place and assembled in china .. so why not yureka..the only drawback i sthe customer support and updates ..i agree .. but that will be solved if we push them micormax is the only indian company that started to give updates now ..other like karbonn,, celkon,,acer,,asus,,or whatever..its just because ppl increased and forced mmx to give updates otherwise they would just loose customers ..a market stands on customers ..and one more thing FOR THE PEOPLE WHO BUY SAMSUNG ..THEY TAKE MONEY FROM OUR COUNTRY BY SELLING US THE PHONE AND MAKE A NUKE MISSILE AND POINT IT TOWARDS US .ATLEAST CHINA DOSENT DO THAT .YOU CAN SEARCH IT ON THE DEEPNET IF YOU KNOW . SO I AM NOT A CONTRIBUTER AGAINST MY COUNTRY ..I WILL BUY THINGS MADE IN INDIA LIKE MODI SAID .. AND HE IS NOT WRONG AT ALL is better for our infrastructure. if all people shun samsung then may be its possible that MICROMAX MAY START building its own products in INDIA itself .. its just up to us..and this is my view i told to you .. now its up to you what you choose

  105. Hi,
    frnd i have brought Yu yureka phone from amazon on jan 28 now i am facing these problems
    1. while calling any person from yu yureka phone i cant here any ring they receive the call but i am unable to here their voice if i use head phones i can here their voice and ring
    2. if any one calla also i can’t here the ring if receive the call i can’t here there voice but if i use headset i can here their vocice
    3. if i reboot the phone the above problem will be solved but when every i face this problem i should reboot the phone then the phone will work properly
    4.once in a while the phone will reboot by itself i dont know why it is happening
    5.i request yu yureka or micromax developer team to fix this bug

  106. As I have used the phone, the phones looks beautiful. Screen is fabulous, great camera quality and as the Cyanogen OS is tweaked, the battery last for more than a day.

  107. Guyzz am blogs say that you yureka has no service crnttes at all . they will only give you the doorstep delivery or you have to courier yr phn for service … Is that true…

  108. I have used yureka from 2 months at high definition game’s it gets heating and battery life is also not that much great it must be 3000mah. Overall phone is great

  109. thanks micromax yureka who made me sooo happy with all fuctions which i expect to have like 2 gb ram and 5.5 inch display screen. this is the best phone in india first time appeared with less price

  110. guyzz dont buy yureka it has very sensitive screen coz i buys yureka 15 days ago now screen is broken due tu long n hard press
    Now display is not available in market

  111. good news the next YU smartphone is going to launge in soon in april. Hope its again a budgect cracker and with a stunning design and UI
    inside it will be having cyianogen mod12s

  112. Don’t buy yureka. It has lot of drawback. All that mentioned review is true only. Also the display will get turn off while calling so that I’m unable to end the call. I have applied to return this yurekha.

  113. I saw that every one was talking about you yureka is a rebrand of coolpad f2… Do u know that coolpad f2 is one of the best and reputed sellers in China.. Though the specs are same as u say rebrand but there’s nothing to criticise micromax.. And yu yureka has promised the updates for any bug fixes 🙂 so make up your mind n go for it.. Or else u will loose the Kohinoor :p

  114. You are spending only 8999 and you want whole worlds full high rang specifications so if you are find something more than yureka in this amount then tell us

  115. Features k najariye se yah ek achha phone hai .lekin disadvantage ye hai ki ye garam ho jata hai.

  116. Micromax yureka is best Mobile………….9000k me aur kya milenga yar wo b branded company se. XIOMI china company chale to chand tak nahi to kidhar b nahi

  117. The blogger is a typical hater of Micromax… no doubt. I have faced service problem with my canvas hd, like under warranty period i just removed the warranty seal sticker sticked on on of the screw. They directly rejected the warranty without considering anything else. I was gone there for few problems like speaker was burst, volume up button was not working, overtime it deducting balance whenever i reboot. Eventhough i dared again and purchased YU yureka which is a good phone if not the best.
    Except warranty….. don’t consider anything else of shitty blogger. And yu yureka also have warranty seal so dont even think to break it. Otherwise it might be mine case (what is the need to break it). Currently I’m using my canvas hd with yureka… both are awesome. Go for it.

  118. Problems in proximity sensor while accepting and disconnecting calls it goes blank. You cannot disconnect calls after talk is over till other party disconnects call. Screen is black till other party disconnects calls.

  119. add one more –
    camera at night is very poor
    i’ld prefer not using flash during low light .. because it makes the pic more worse

  120. Please avoid pre-analysis. The feedback from the users having the phone for more than a month will highly be appreciated.

    Also please expect performance of I-Phone 6, Xperia Z3 or Samsung Galaxy-6 at INR 8999.00

    1. Sorry typo error..

      Also please DON’T expect the performance of I-Phone 6, Xperia Z3 or Samsung Galaxy-6 at INR 8999.00



  122. When I am installating app…..that install button is not responding .then again I restarted the phone then it works….

  123. This is awesome phone dont trust this review, i have been using this mobile since 2 months and its best of the best, no complaints ..go for it.,

  124. To all guys facing heating problems,
    It occurs to some users if you insert an unformatted memory card .Google it for solutions..
    And this phone is great i am using this for 4 days now…

  125. Yureka works great am using it for 4 days now.
    There are only three reasons you should not buy this phone
    1. 2500mah battery
    2. Heating
    3. Camera quality not that good-decent at night and better during the day
    Apart from this there is a whole lot of of reasons you should buy this phone you can check its specs to convince yourself ,looks pretty good,price 9000 only so cheap for this kind of specs
    If you want even a little more from this phone then you are as greedy as you can be.
    People who are facing blank/black screen during call can try this three trick to get around with it
    1 : go to settings – button – check the end call option . it will not solve the black screen problem but you can jang up the call.
    2 : those who have updated to lollipop can dial *#*#7769#*#* and your proximity sensor will take a few seconds to reconfigure it….and you are good now your problem is solved
    3 : those using kitkat can place a folded paper just below the rear camera- so that it presses the body a little ;now place the back cover and you are done.
    But I must tell you that you can always call customer care for any assistance
    Hope I helped.

  126. hi sir…….I have a problem when i was inserted nokia ear phones instead of yu ear phones its not working so please help me in this manner.

  127. Hello,

    I bought Yureka two weeks back and updated software to my Yureka but now hvng sensor problem, my cel screen is not getting ON only.

    Please tell me the solution.


  128. the display was not opening though my mobile has battery.the home button is showing the power init but on screen my lock and all other thing are not showing the screen is completely black..what should i do can you please help me…

  129. Please dont buy the phone.I am using this stupid phone.The overheating problem is really bad.
    My battery drains out very easily.
    Talking to support is useless.
    They have a standard template for responses and every time I send them a mail they respond with the same reply.

    I have put the stupid phone in a drawer coz if I continue using it.It will burn my skin.

  130. hello everyone, I m getting a problem although i m getting full signal of Mobile network but no image of whatsapp is opening even 10 KB images plz help me.

  131. Why the hell all are saying it is rebranding of Coolpad F2??? Do we all care it is rebranded or not? We just want high features in less price & that’s what Yu Yureka has.
    All are saying it is rebranded such that we have Chinese neighbors & they will say us that it is our remake version.Illogical really… Guys Yu Yureka is good phone If u want to buy it.. Go for it you won’t regret. 🙂

    Yes,about battery it is little low but fine for normal user for 1 to 1 & half days or better get a power bank.

  133. Beware of Service post purchase. There is no center and only customer care number who are list bother about the problem.

  134. Owning such phones makes one look downmarket… No brand no value..

    Moreover I highly doubt the durability of this month phone, after all it from YU, a side brand of the pathetic “Micromax” whose devices have a reputation for bad quality..

  135. I had bought this phn since a month no complaints with apps and it is running without hanging but heating and charging prob. Is there it take too much time to charge as compared to gionee s6 and gionee p2

  136. sir I want yo-rekha a micromax (sister) please suggest the tag price (money) and the authority city of the phone is it geniusune

  137. yu yurekha is very bad mobile ..dont buy any one…I brought it in 2 weeks back but am getting lot of issues.

    battery backup is very less
    audio/vedio calling issues- vedio will not be display.
    display wont be appear when we are getting calls or when we dialed to other.


  138. I bought the phone and then found that there were many issues reported . I have not updated the phone to the lollipop and also have resolved the proximity sensor issue. Migrated from the grand duos 19082.

    I find the reviews Biased . I wasnt elated at the 19082 either which had some speed , battery and issues with switching off after paying 20.5K .

    I am happy and suggest that if one buys this then dont update to Lollipop as there is no great advantage over the 4.4

    1. Ugh….Grand Duos…tell me about it. I used to use that phone. Bought mine @17k. My experience with that phone say the least, destructive. It destroyed my peace of mind piece by piece. Phone was laggy, touch was not smooth (reading ebooks with that device was a pain), overall a really flawed phone. its only plus point was it had a big screen and internal storage was kinda big.

  139. Hello there! I could have sworn I’ve visited this site before but after going through
    many of the posts I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely pleased I discovered it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!

  140. yurekha phone west phone dnt buy this phone frnds west phone in india west west west chetha ph a koduku dorukale naku vank untadi chetha phone

  141. Why is dis yuraka cnsuming lot of data i used watsapp just fr an hlf an hour only chat n it cnsumd almst 300mb plz sugest me y is this happening i did nt dwnload any videos only i had a chat

  142. I don’t hate Micromax(Canvas knight Rocks!) nor do I like it(Canvas Knight 2), but i have to say, YU YUREKA is a pretty good phone if you consider the price. And this review definitely seems biased. i mean get real, at a price tag of 8999, FULL HD? Seriously? If you know a phone below 10k with FHD display, please do tell me. And that rumor thingy is soo cliché. The only complaint i have is, why is it not available err..offline…err…at local shops? Well, these are just my opinion anyway.

  143. This is nice phone. Battery problem is same with all micromax mobile. But we are getting more features in low price. So this is good phone if we see price and features.

  144. nice phone ? I am not even able to pick this phone whenever anyone calls, I tried all calibration but it does not work.
    Can Any one tell how it is working for them ? I have Yu yureka Plus phone

  145. Micromax one of Fraud Company.. Who making people fool. I Submit my phone on 23 July 2015 in my local amritsar service center. And Now From last two months i am waiting for may phone but they people making me fool. If i ask from my local service center they people tell us we are not responsible for your phone if we have sent your phone to our customer service center and when i am calling in Customer Care..then they people always tell give a 15 days again and again…But still i did not get my phone. If they people will not respond me now. THEN I WILL GIVE A COMPLAINT IN CONSUMER COURT.

  146. dont believe in warranty replacement or service. i am very vexed about it. the telecallers just prolong the issue by just speaking to you. They will not do any thing else. I have display problem nearly 20 days i tried and tired. gone for local shop only.

  147. I had Samsung Galaxy S Duos (s7652) and recently bought Yu Yureka. I feel the speaker output of Samsung is better both volume and quality-wise. Also, same song played via earphone in both phones compared and found Samsung had better quality.

    Yureka occasionally has proximity sensor issue – either screen becomes active while calling or screen goes blank when call is coming. There are apps to fix this but I still have issues.

    The apps (with which it comes) may take some time to get used to…. like gallery, phone app, contacts, file manager. etc. I installed different apps for these, did not like the default apps. Example, I could not copy contacts from SIM and I had to use an app for this. I could not move files in File Manager and I installed different file manager. etc.

    The only thing I like is the camera. Now I feel I could have bought a tab for half that money. Lenovo A7000 had less attractive specs but was practically a better phone.

    1. An update: After I bought a flip cover case for Yureka, the proximity issue while calling is completely solved. The phone looks and feels good after it got the case. On the positive side, I like the feature of being able to use the camera directly without unlocking the phone (quick camera access). It is very handy. Also, I can adjust volume without unlocking. Camera has features like time-lapse and slow motion videos. Some of the issues are fixed after software update. FYI.

  148. My u yureka is mic issue when on loud speaker then working well but when off then nothing work what i can do.

  149. My camera is not working in yureka what to do, iam getting unfortunately camera not working

  150. I went through the blog before buying it and even after reading the cons, I took the risk.
    Now I have more that 5 reasons to tell why not to buy YU phones.

    Better go for something less fancy than this phone

  151. Don’t buy YU Products, they cheating and making money from us, their products, not genuine, with lots of hardware problems. people buying look on its design, configuration, but hardware is worst.

  152. biased completely biased
    I hv been using this device for mor than 6 months but no issues whatsoever
