  • Budget Phone

  • Good performance

Yu Yuphoria is a value for money phone. It’s the best looking budget device that you can buy, if you are a multitasker and do a lot on your phone, and then the extra 1GB of RAM on the Yuphoria will be useful to you.

The Yu Yuphoria is a good looking device, probably the best that the sub-7k segment can offer and the metal is fabulous and provides lavish look on the side that can easily move a buyer towards the Yuphoria.

The rounded metal edges add more than just looks to the device. Yes, the metallic shine does make it look better than others; it is very handy too that is grip is really good.

The thing to be happy is phone looks stunning from the back too. Modulated with the absolute luxury and camera module.

The big round camera module on the back looks unique. Yu calls this the ‘Saturn ring’ design and it adds to the design more sophistication and a different feel. The overall design is sure to turn users ON and may even solicit astonishment from those who aren’t already familiar with this smart phone.

The only thing to worry about the design of this smart phone is the placement of the volume rocker and power button. The power button rests between the up and down volume buttons, but it is bigger than those. As a result, it is usually pressed on one side and tends to bend towards that side. You may very well find the power button to be non-functional after using this phone for a while.

The first real pitfall for the Yuphoria is in its display. There’s a definite pink-ish hue all over the display, which makes apps, images and videos looks weird, not bad but we are not habitual so seeing such saturations and hues on display.

One of the biggest selling points of the Yuphoria is that it comes with CyanogenMod 12 and Android 5.0.

Yu Yuphoria has maintained cleanliness and simplicity and does not have bulk of apps which a user may or may not want to have in the phone although the inclusion of Baton seems fruitless since it’s still in beta stage and doesn’t allow new entrants. In addition, the YUniverse apps kept freezing and crashing everytime which is a bad experience.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 isn’t a sizeable upgrade over the Snapdragon 400. It is still the reigning SoC in the budget market.

On regular usage, the Yuphoria shows some lag and stuttering after heating up. In the 41 degrees temperature, that happens quite fast too, but one can’t really hold that against a smart phone. Under more controlled conditions, the performance is pretty much fine. Phone sometimes froze on the multitasking screen.

It overexposes images in bright sunlight and washes them out in indoor settings.

The camera is also somewhat slow to focus, irrespective of the light conditions. While low light imaging is more respectable.

On regular usage, this phone won’t get you through the day, but will last for about 10-12 hours. This will change if you’re gaming a lot though. The battery drops by about 14% after 25 minutes of gaming, which means there’s not a lot you’ll get out of it. It’s an ok battery at best.

Our final word for Yu Yuphoria is for a phone at 6,999 you are getting so much…A good to go budget smart phone.
