YU YUNIQUE: A 4G enabled device at just Rs.5000
Yu is known to have taken over the affordable smartphone market by introducing devices at a low price but providing some impressive specifications. It is exclusively available at Snapdeal.
Lets look what YU has to offer in this low budget handset named YU Yunique.
As the cost suggests the phone is quite cheap and hence in context to it, it has a cheap looking profile. Nothing as such attractive is offered. A plastic backing is present which is removable and gives you access to the MicroSD slot and the dual sim slots, however you donot have the access to the battery . In its design the phone looks like a blend between a Android One and the YU Yuphoria.
The device offers a 4.7 inch 720 X 1280 p IPS LCD HD display. Corning Gorilla glass 3 protects the device upfront. As the screen size is just 4.7 inch we expect pleasurable experience with the 720p screen resolution.
SIM & CONNECTIVITY
It is a Dual- SIM device with 4G capability. It accepts Micro SIMS and has a dual standby.
YU Yunique runs on the latest android software i.e. 5.1.1 lollipop. Its disheartening to see the YU Yunique doesnot include the Cyanogen OS like its predecessors did. Thus the customization that Cyanogen provides is absent. However it is good news that the software doesnot include any kind of bloatware and you will have a stock experience like in a NEXUS or a ANDROID ONE device. Stock OS makes the device snappier. Capacitive buttons are absent so you are provided with on screen navigation software keys.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 a 1.2 Ghz Quad-core processor powers the device. This is one of those chipsets which has been adopted by many of the newer low budget devices and has provided with a promising experience. 1GB of RAM underneath the device is enough for day to day tasks but while gaming you may experience some dropped frames. Over all the device would be a decent performer.
8MP camera with F/2.0 aperture and auto-focus is present at the rear. It clicks video at 1080p at 30fps. We expect it to be the same sensor as in the Yuphoria hence you will be getting some decent looking images. A 2MP camera is upfront. Both the cameras offer HDR. At that price bracket only this is the device which offers such camera modules.
8 GB of internal storage is available on the device of which around 5.X GB will be available for usage. So if you use too many apps that’s a bad news for you. MicroSD support upto 32 GB is available for storing your media.
A 2000 mAh non-removable battery is powering the device. Considering the 720p display to be powered the battery should hold good for a complete day of usage.
