Reasons Why You Should Not Buy Micromax YU Yureka Plus

YU, the online-only sub-brand of Indian handset maker Micromax, has launched “Yureka Plus,” the upgraded version of its first budget smartphone, Yureka, at Rs 9,999. The major highlight of the phone is its upgraded 5.5-inch full-HD (1920x1080p) display. Powered by a 64 bit 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core chip and 2GB DDR3 RAM, the phone has 16GB internal storage expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. Though the company has improved some of it’s features, it still has some drawbacks. Here we listed some reasons Why You Should Not Buy Micromax YU Yureka Plus.

Yu Yureka was a Disaster, so is Yureka Plus

When we want to buy a smartphone we definitely lookup for the best features. The company’s first device Yureka, which was unveiled in December 2014, didn’t reach the expectations of users. The device has many drawbacks like heating issues, battery drain problems & poor quality of the camera which surely effects on it’s new device Yureka plus.

Average Battery life:

Both the Yureka and its Plus variant come packed with 2,500 mAh (Lithium-Polymer) which claims to offer 7 hours of 4G talk time, or 8 hours of 3G talk time, 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 inches Full HD display with a powerful 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.

Visual Appearance

In terms of visual appearance, Yureka Plus looks identical to its predecessors. The display is the same size as before, which is 5.5-inches.


There is not much difference between Yureka and its Plus variant. They both house a 13MP camera with Sony Exmor RS sensors but vary in the versions. The former features IMX 135 sensor, whereas the latter comes with the IMX214 sensor.

Yureka Plus costs around Rs 9,999, Rs 1,000 more than its predecessor. Except for the display and a new camera, other major features remain almost the same. No need for wasting money.


This phone cannot reach to a typical countryman of India because the company has launched its product exclusively via Amazon.in. We should think once again to get this phone as the services given by Micromax.

However, if you are willing to buy the mobile, you can.
