Micromax Yureka has 5.5 inch IPS display with HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels while dissimilar to the One Plus One it is facilitated with the full-HD screen which implies that the number of pixels per inch are less and One Plus One comes with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels in comparison. We sensed that colours to be a little over saturated in the Micromax YU Yureka mobile however we didn’t notice distortion due to lower pixel density and are not pretty sure if it has got to do with the custom icons of the default theme that look a little too vibrant or the display. Other most concerning factor is that both smartphones have a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for added protection against scratches.

    Abdul Ghani,
    Tech Glows

  2. micromax service is very poor and build quality is always plastic
    please mention above that.please furnish more detail about this yurekha and why cynogen

  3. The only sore thing in the phone is lack of FHD, Though, HD resolution is good, they could have increased the price by about 1000 /- and included FHD along with Sony IMX 214 sensor with 2.0 or 1.8 aperture.. Their current IMX 15 is a scrap. They are still trying to utilize the junk that has been left over by Sony..

    Awaiting for above specifications…

  4. Nice effort made by the site …I will go with yurekaha as it is budgetary and high end of its kind

  5. The only doubt is will Micromax Yu yureka performace once it will be upgraded to Android 5.5 lollipop and display screen due to not providing full HD. The last point where this can be a failure due to battery which is only 2500 mah it should be somewhere 3000 mah

  8. Hey,Suresh ..

    Micromax yu is friendly budget phone but is it upgraded towards lollipop?…. In this snapdragon is bit awesome but i do hope this is true octa core. Not low quality 8 × cores … china

  9. i am not gonna go for chinese handset when i nve my homegrown company providinng me the best specs at afordable prices….loves yureka

  10. Micromax rocks ! Micromax has outgrown its big competitors like Samsung, Nokia and these dumb Chinese smartphone companies like one plus and Xiomi which are not reliable and known for their hidden spyware codes in their device hardware and are reported and banned to use by intelligence and defense departments.

    Micromax despite of being an indian company it was successful in becoming a global player with markets outside of India including Russia with in a short span of time.

    I have personally experienced the Xiomi M3 and Redmi note myself and i can guarantee that you will lose your money without having any service for your devices and you will face hardware problems like speaker complaint , earphone socket damage, blinking display etc.
