Why to buy Micromax YU Yureka

Finally yureka is out. It has become one of the most waited phone being on a custom ROM : Cyanogen 11 ROM rather than Stock Android.

The reality is that no company(except in Google Nexus) gives Android as it is but makes some few tweaks in its look and feel.
And user could flash a custom ROM by rooting their phone, but now micromax has taken a big step by giving out a
real beautiful phone with a custom ROM built in.

So Why should we buy Yureka??? 
1. The Octa-Core processor at prize 8,999 Rs
2. The 5.5 Inch display with Corning Gorilla 3
And last but not the least, the famous Cyanogen ROM  (What is Cyanogen and why cyanogen ??? read at All about Cyanogen ROM you should know )

Micromax has signed an exclusive partnership with Cyanogen to be the only seller of Cyanogen smartphones in India.
No micromax branding logo is on yureka but you will see a cool YU logo at the back cover.
So, lets first check out what's inside this Yureka?:

Although micromax is not that famous for its design but yureka's been very nice in its look.
It has 5.5-inch IPS panel display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
3.5mm audio-jack is located on top and the microUSB charging and data transfer port is located on the base.

It’s powered by the 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 system on chip which houses an octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and the Adreno 405 GPU clocked at 550MHz.

It comes paired with 2GB of DDR3 RAM and offers 16GB of storage of which 12.8GB is available to the user.

On the camera front, it comes with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera.
It runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS with the Cyanogen 11 ROM. You can read the article Why Cyanogen ROM, PROS and CONS to get a clear idea of Cyanogen ROM.

The Yu Yureka houses a 2500mAh battery, which is not much considering the power-consuming 5.5-inch HD display.

The touch response of the Yureka is smooth and we did not notice any lag while using the phone.
Call quality was quite good and we did not experience any call drops at the time of testing.

Yureka can handle popular games such as RipTide GP2, Fruit Ninja, Shadowgun smoothly.
In the movie mode, the default video player can play back most formats,
though we noticed some stuttering when playing full HD, high bit-rate videos.


The Micromax Yu Yureka sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core chipset, which keeps most tasks running at a lightning speed.
Now, the immediate competitors to the Yu Yureka are the Redmi Note 3G/4G and the ASUS Zenfone 5.
In the AnTuTu benchmark it scores better than both these phones.

This is Amazon exclusive phone and prized at  8,999 Rs.
