Yuphoria is a sturdy device, and yes, for a price of 6,999 INR, it is a great deal. It’s major strength will be the performance and software it offers for the price.

      • furthermore sir, can you please review about the heating(gaming and while casually texting) and battery, ’cause they were the main concerns for yu yureka and i had to sell it ultimately. Irrespective of quick charge making up for the 7 hrs talk time as mentioned by company,how is going to hold a day when using moderately? (music streaming apps,gaming for an hr tops, camera max 30 min,calling 2-3 hrs,whatsapp etc for 2 hrs max)

          • sir plz tell me……………..i want to auto call recording is not support………….other voice is voice ligh recording…………can we recording by mobile without app…………….tell me sm so upset

  1. Dear DEEPAK what about multiuser in lolipop and ambient display. And display type somewhere its saying tft some where LCD can you please confirm it

    • Multiuser support is there. Ambient display is not there. Display looks like IPS LCD to my eyes.
      The display is mentioned as IPS TFT, but technically IPS LCD displays are part of TFT LCD displays only, though generally non IPS LCD displays are termed TFT LCD.
      Either ways, viewing angles are good, though as i have mentioned, colors are on the warmer side, which is not necessarily a bad thing. first time users won’t notice any difference

  2. USB OTG is supported but it’s not available due to a known bug in CM12. Possibly an update could fix it.

    • That’s subjective. I think yes, i didn’t like it much the first time i saw it, but it grows on you.. kind of

  7. Hi , I have a few questions .
    1) How is the audio output via these headphones and a better set of headphones , such as say skullcandy or senheiser ?? I saw some saying that the output is not quite good , even with good headphones . The sound seems monophonic when listening to at high volumes .

    2) Does the proximity sensor have a bug ? Many reviewers report that the sensor doesnot work correctly .
    3) How do macro shots look — does the subject get focussed right ? For example , can the petals of a flowers be differentiated in a macro shot ?
    4) Does the keyboard lag ?
    5) How clear is the audio via the loudspeaker ?

    Hope someone answers these .
