|Amazon||YU Yuphoria YU5010A (White+Champ)||Rs. 5,499|
YU happens to be the brainchild of Micromax, which needs no introduction in Indian smartphone market. Micromax has come up with the new brand to counter the competition posed by online only brands in the Indian market. The brand came up with a Yureka as their debut handset, which was pretty impressive. The YU Yuphoria seems like a sized-down version of the Yureka and with reduced size has come a bit of a downgrade in terms of specs, but nothing that can be called a deal-breaker.
Stainless steel rim: YU Yuphoria is one of the very few or might be the only device to feature a stainless steel chassis. However, the back panel of the smartphone is still a flimsy plastic and that is a deal breaker for many.
Intelligent Power consumption technology: YU Yuphoria has been equipped with the Intelligent Power Consumption feature, which controls the battery consumption. This would be beneficial for those who prefer to have longer battery life.
Corning Gorilla Glass 3: The display of this handset comes protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which is scratch and shatter resistant. This is a useful feature for those who are a rough user of smartphones.
Pure Wolfson Sound and AAC speakers: Musice lovers will totally love this smartphone as it comes with Pure Wolfson Sound and AAC speakers, which enhance the audio output significantly.
Quick Charge: If you are using a device that has a smaller battery, the least you can expect is for it to charge faster. Yuphoria does come with Quick Charge, which the brand claims can take battery level from zero to 50% in just 45 minutes.
Cyanogen OS 12: YU had an exclusive deal with Cyanogen Inc, which allowed it to be the only brand to launch smartphones with Cyanogen OS pre-installed in them. YU Yuphoria comes with Cyanogen OS 12, which Is based on Android Lollipop operating system. Cyanogen OS is known for its performance enhancements and customisation options.
Flimsy back panel: While the handset itself boasts of a stainless steel rim, the rear panel is a flimsy plastic that feels quite cheap on touch. The rear panel itself takes away all the premium feeling that comes from the steel body of the handset.
Poor Battery: Since YU Yuphoria runs on the Cyanogen OS, which is a performance driven OS, battery life seems to take a little bit of hit. However, it is not a deal breaker since it comes with Quick Charge option.
