Yu Yunique Full Review!
Yu Yunique is a sleek looking device measuring 8.3mm in thickness and it looks similar to its elder brother Yu YuPhoria which was previously launched by the company. Even at this price point, Yu has not used any cheap materials to build this phone, it has good built quality, the rear cover is also built high quality plastic and it provides rubberised grip with Matt texture.
This phone comes with a 4.7 inch HD (720 x 1280) pixels resolution display which looks good and has no pixilation and it also has Corning Gorilla Glass 3, whereas the down side about this display is its viewing angles but still it supports 5 point multi touch display.
Performance And Storage
Yu Yunique is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, 1.2GHz Quad Core processor coupled with Adreno 305 (400MHz) GPU and it has 1GB of Ram, 8GB of internal memory out which you will get slight less than 4G of available memory and it also supports microSD card upto 32GB.
Being an entry level budget smartphone, it is defiantly not meant of the high end gamers, however, it can handle most of the games like Subway Surfer, Candy Crush Saga, Despicable Me without any problem and we also tested the Asphalt 8 (Airborn) on this phone which lagged little bit on the highest quality settings but once it was shifted to mid quality settings there was no problem in running this game.
This phone runs on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) operating system with few tweaks in the UI and Yu has also announced that Cyanongen OS will available as an optional update in coming time.
Yu Yuniqe comes with a 8 Megapixel autofocus rear camera and has a similar camera design which we have seem on Yu YuPhoria. It also has got a LED flash and the camera UI also has a lot to offer.
This camera can capture photos in Auto mode, HDR mode, panorama mode, portrait mode, landscape mode, sports mode, night mode, etc and you can also apply effects like mono, sepia, sketch, aqua, etc. You can also manual change settings like exposure, ISO, focus mode, picture quality, picture size, etc. Whereas on the front side it has 2 Megapixel selfie camera which seem to using a wide angle lens.
The picture taken with this camera in good amount of light came out to be good and sharp. Taking photos in low light condition takes quite longer as compared to outdoor conditions but the photos by no means look bad, indoors photos were also well exposed, keeping in mind the price of this phone.
Yu Yunique is worlds first 4G HD Display smartphone and it has dual SIM slots and both SIM slots supports 4G connectivity and it also has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3.5 mm audio jack, GPS and micro USB v2.0 port.
This phone is packing a 2000 Li-Po mAh battery which is non user removable battery and the battery life has quite amazing. In light usage on single charge we touched 5 hours of screen on time even with 15% battery remaining and the standby time is also really good.
I have to admit that the unboxing experience was also really unexpected in a good way. Because of its price, we were expecting some sort of cost cutting in the box content, but surprisingly, Yu has provided all the accessories with the phone. Inside the box you get the Handset, USB cable, charger, ear phones having metal corners, SAR values, Warranty card and even the screen guard is provided.
Worth Mentioning: The phone also has LED notification light.
Yu Yunique is a budget smartphone with solid built quality, amazing camera capabilities and there is nothing cheap about this device, except its price.
