Yu Yureka Review: Best Smartphone under Rs. 10000

By on Email @exolete

Yu Televentures, the online-only brand/company of Micromax has a huge hit with the YU Yureka. Although the Redmi Note 4G has been available in the market with similar specifications, the YU Yureka running on Cyanogen OS, Rs. 1000 lesser price-tag made it an instant hit and its not without merit. The Yu Yureka is a 4G LTE dual-SIM device with a good display, good cameras and excellent performance. Yes, it does heat-up during gaming but its been said that the issues will be fixed with updates. Cyanogen has been working on several updates with a handful of units having issues with proximity sensor calibration and audio. Our unit did not have such issues and the Yureka performed quite well in all our tests. The build quality could've been better, but its quite light which makes handling the phone a lot easier. There's a detailed video-review which you can watch above and scores can be found below with pros/cons.
