In the constant fight for supremacy in the game of Smartphones, sometimes gadgets of rival brands are compared. However, here, we shall compare two devices of the same brand, Micromax, named Yureka that was launched in December, and Yuphoria that was recently released. Read on to find out and compare the various features, specifications, and pricing of both the phones…
In terms of design, the phablet Yureka sports a 5.5” HD screen with a 720x1280p resolution and an 80-degree viewing angle. The pixel density is 267ppi due to the phone’s large screen area. It is ergonomically designed with a sloping edge and a slight bulge in the middle for a comfortable grip. When it comes to the Yuphoria, the screen is a 5” HD IPS TFT screen with a display resolution of 1280x720p and a pixel density of 294ppi. It is protected by the Gorilla Glass 3 for durability.
Coming to the tech specs which more often than not determine if the potential user will buy the phone, the Yureka is equipped with a 64-bit class Snapdragon 615 Octa-core CPU. It is backed by an Adreno 405 GPU, with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal memory 32 GB of expandable memory using the microSD card. The Yuphoria comes with a 1.2 GHz Quad Core Snapdragon 410 64-bit processor for fluid multitasking. It too comes with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal, and 32 GB of expandable space.
A major component of any Smartphone today is its camera and the makers of the Yureka and Yuphoria have attempted to pack in a good camera for the photography lovers. The Yureka has a 13 MP primary camera with LED flash and Sony Exmor RS sensor, 5-physical element lens, 75.4 degree wide-angle, Blue-lens architecture, full HD (1080p) resolution recording. The 5 MP front camera satisfies the selfie taking and video calling needs. The Yuphoria on the other hand, comes with an 8 MP primary camera with LED flash, f/2.2 aperture, HDR, and full HD video recording ability. The front camera is 5 MP with f/2.0 aperture, 4-physical element lens, and 86-degree wide-angle.
The OS of choice for both the handsets is the Cyanogen custom Android OS. With extensive customizability, the Cyanogen is a great OS for those who love personalizing their gadget. While the Yuphoria comes with Android Lollipop, the Yureka has received the upgrade to the latest Android iteration last month, making them at par with each other.
Produced by the Micromax subsidiary, Yu, both the Smartphones have been designed keeping in mind the masses, as can be seen by its competitive pricing. The Yureka is priced at Rs.8, 999 while the Yuphoria will set the buyer back by Rs.6999. Both the models are exclusively available with online retail Amazon.
If a good camera is your priority, then the Yureka seems like a better idea. While the processors of both the handsets are quite the same, there are no real comparisons on that front. Same goes for the OS. The design and size of the screen is a factor along with the pricing that the buyer may wish to consider. Overall, both the Smartphones have been designed keeping in mind “YU” and at the end, are great products.
