YU YUREKA S: Mid-Range Smartphone with a Dated OS
YU enhances its mid-range smartphone lineup with a new handset which surfaced way back in March. This device comes at a pretty affordable price point and throws in some of the best features for its category. Let us take a closer look at the existing specs sheet:
YU YUREKA S flaunts a manageable 5.2-inch screen that is further safeguarded by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. In terms of resolution, the Full HD display flaunts 1920x1080 pixels. Powering the same is a 3,000mAh battery module. This smartphone boasts of Dual-SIM support in addition to 4G LTE and Wireless connectivity. Other specs include GPS for navigation and Bluetooth v4.0 for seamless file transfers. In terms of internals, we get Qualcomm’s 64-Bit Snapdragon 615 SoC with this model clocking at 1.7GHz. The Octa-Core CPU works together with Adreno 405 GPU.
The Hybrid SIM slot is more of restrictive feature from the company. Moreover, Android Lollipop v5.1 as the existing operating system isn’t the best attribute on-board. Lastly, we expected something more than mere 16 gigs of on-board storage even though it is expandable via the Hybrid slot.
Unique Selling Points
YU YUREKA S stacks in 3GB RAM which is one of the better deals offered by YU. Next in line is a 13MP primary shooter with Omni Vision sensor, LED flashlight and Full HD video recording prowess. A 5MP selfie snapper is also available boasting of an 84-degree wide-angle lens and f/2.2 lens aperture.
