YU Yunique Review: Best Budget 4G Smartphone?

By on Email @exolete

The YU Yunique is the answer to Xiaomi's Redmi 2 Prime. At a lower price point it offers similar specs in a similar form factor with almost stock Android. The Yunique offers good build quality, good battery-life and does work well most of the time. The software needs polish, performance needs to be improved, which may just be a few OTA updates away. Overall the YU Yunique at its current price point is one of the best budget 4G LTE devices in the market.


7.7

The YU Yunique offers pretty much the same specs as the Redmi 2 Prime at a lower price point with good build, decent performance but needs polish.
