Micromax Yu Yunique- More That What You Expect From a Phone below Rs. 5000
Micromax has added a new addition to its Yu family of mobile phones, with the all new Yu Yunique, which went on flash sale on Snapdeal last Wednesday. This is the fourth Smartphone launched by Micromax under the Yu branding. Yu Yunique is one of the lowest priced 4G mobile handset that is available in the market right now. Priced at Rs. 4999, the phone packs a great punch.
The new phone looks like a miniature version of the previous phone Yu Yuphoria, as it carries forward the same design profile. The phone comes with a compact size of 134.50×67.50×8.30mm, and gives a good grip in your hands. The 4.7 inch 720×1280 pixels screen comes with Coring Gorilla Glass 3 protection, which we find often missing in many phones which come under the sub Rs. 5000 category.
The new Yu phone comes with a removable back panel, which holds a 2000 mAh non removable battery and slots for two SIM cards and a micro SD card slot. Unlike the other Yu phones, this phone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, and not on the Cyanogen OS. This may seem to be like a move away from the Yu mobile range from Micromax, but if you want, you can flash Cyanogen OS 12.1 onto the device anytime. The phone runs on 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The specifications although seem to be not so great, at this price point you can’t expect anything more either. The phone will work fine under normal usage, but will find difficulty in doing multitasking with several apps open on the device.
Yu Yunique comes with an internal storage of 8GB, out of which a little more than 4 GB will be available for users. The phone has an 8 mega pixel rear camera, and a 2 megapixel front facing camera. The non removable 2000 mAh Li-Po battery will give you talk time of up to 7 hours, and standby time of up to 271 hours. The phone won’t eat up your battery fast as it has lighter specifications and runs on stock android without any bloat ware, which won’t demand much power.
All things said, the phone seems to be a good option for those who are looking for an entry level Smartphone at this price point. Though the processor and RAM of the phone might seem to be low, it is rare to find all other things that the phone offers at this price in most of its competitors. After all, a 4G mobile, with near 5 inch HD display, and also with corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, is really hard to find under Rs. 5000. The 8 megapixel rear camera, and pure Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, with zero bloat ware, and the Rs. 4999 price tag; if your budget is Rs 5000, then no need to think twice.
