The display of Micromax Yu Yureka is an epitome of supreme engineering. It flaunts a 5.5-inch IPS display with a pixel resolution of 720 x 1,280 at 267ppi. Although the screen looks a bit dull with traces of over-saturated colors, the decent viewing angles as wide as 180 degrees is quite impressive and is easily readable under direct sunlight. Micromax offers an added incentive by providing additional protection to the screen by the means of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and oleophobic coating over the display.
Design and Build
Micromax Yu Yureka with a dimension of 154.8 x 78mm is 8.5mm thick and weighs 155g. The all plastic body of the smartphone makes it comfortable to hold and fits well within one hand. A new premium matte finish has been infused at the back cover which the company calls the Moonstone Grey to make it fingerprint and smudge proof – a sandpaper kind of a feeling enabling a good grip.
The Yu Yureka specs make it a performer as it is geared to run on a 64-bit octa-core (Quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A53 & quad-core 1.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor) based on a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 chipset. It is coupled by a 2GB DDR3 RAM and Adreno 405 chipset GPU. The hardware is suitable for executing multiple apps, clicking images, navigating across multiple web pages and playing high resolution games.
The Yu Yureka has got good reviews for smooth multitasking and powerful performance. Cyanogen OS 11 platform, a modified version of Android v4.4.4 KitKat OS has been inducted to facilitate an intuitive UI to the users.
