Yu Yutopia Cons
- Heating Issue
While in our short period of testing the device on the launch event, it was getting slight warmer from the backside, just below the camera. The reason for the heating could be continuous usage for hours, as the device was a demo unit. The heating was not too much, it was just modest. However we will be testing it, once we get the review unit.
- Dual SIM Slots (Hybrid)
Yutopia has dual SIM slots (Micro SIM1 + Nano SIM2) and the SIM2 is a hybrid slot. So, Either you can configure it as (SIM1 + SIM2) or (SIM1 + MicroSD Card), which seems to be limiting you with one or the other.
Yutopia comes with a 3000 mAh battery which is a quite respectable for a phone measuring 7.2mm in thickness, but having said that. Yutopia comes with a 2K resolution display which can drain the battery quite quickly.
- Camera Hump
This handset is having a 21MP rear camera with OIS and the phone measures 7.2mm in thickness which definitely creates a camera hump, which means you need to take extra care of the phone while putting it on the table.
