Very exciting hardware, and was very excited to own a made in India phone, but am quite disappointed after using it for a little more than a month, tried to return it but am too late for it now, don't know what to do with this phone now???
Very bad battery life, but charges quickly, have to charge it twice a day with my usage.
Excellent screen display.
The worst and most glitchy touch screen experience you could have.
For no apparent reason you will suddenly find that the phone can not detect your SIM card.
Very decent camera.
Wifi connection is also a little glitchy, at times it's quite annoying.
I will not ever buy a yu phone again, before I had also decided to go for the yutopia 2 when it gets launched.
Am an Indian at heart, so I really want this company to do well, but have lost confidence now.
A suggestion if anyone important in the company is listening, announce a return policy like return in 1-2 months get back x% return in 3-4 months get y% back. It would show your commitment to your product and will scare people like me a lot lesser to ever again experiment with your brand.
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2016a request to people against yu .. plz try to avoid saying lots of lies.... the company hasn't ... morei havent wrote any fake comment. there are lots of issue i faced in my yutopia. thats why i returned it. camera is not upto the mark. performance is not like sd810. shown some lags in 3-4 days. fingerprint scanner is pathetic. lots of bug in UI.
No update of cynogene 13 is currently available for Yutopia. so you are writing everything fake to support yutopia. please dont misguide others to waste their money. 25000INR is not small amount to waste on this shitty phone.
I had bought this phone with great hopes but the phone is having many issues. The phone does't supports camera2 api, finger print sensor is not good, some times phone doesn't recognises touches especially the on screen home touch buttons , unstable wifi , even when device is very close to router (1 to 2 feet) the wifi reception is very poor it loses the signal automatically and catches after sometime means it works intermittently. Sometimes it work fine for 15 to 20 minutes and loses signal after that but sometimes it is horribly unstable loses signal every now and then I checked it with other routers and other phone hotspots but it doesn't resolves. I have tried every possible way to resolve it like hard resetting the phone to using in safe mode etc. But the problem exists. One most important thing , the service is worst of a kind I have seen in the history of smartphone manufacturers till date no resolution, made many threads on yu forum called many times the customer care but no resolution till date.
a request to people against yu .. plz try to avoid saying lots of lies.... the company hasn't done anything to you.. first of all plz just buy this and experience it. then only write..ok?? and a most powerful news that yu has officially launched the cyanogen 13 update for yutopia!!!!! visit the optical site of yu!!!!rock on it guyz!!play god!!!!
DDV, 17 Feb 2016The phone is just good on papers. Take everything best and put it all together, doesnt make th... moreYou're a paid reviewer right! Tat is quite evident with this comment, because ALL you said are lies (few are not):
1.The phone heats up even on standby. This phone is known for keeping SD 810 V1 under perfect control on temperature even on Hardest Performance. This has a special grease, 7/8 holes on top & bottom of phone for heat release
2.The Saturn Ring came out on Day 2-3 with glue still wet! THIS IS THE BIGGEST lie! ANY glue (Epoxy, FeviBond, FeviStick,FeviQuik) sticks is any condition and gets dry within 1 Hour and your glue is wet after about 1 Week of Manufacture!(Phones are manufactured over 1 week vefore delivery and also Yutopia is made much more before it's deliveries because it has registration to buy)
3.The phone has not hung in my experience, any review or anything. And you say that the phone hung and didn't get normal EVEN on restart! WAH! It is IMPOSSIBLE and IMPRACTICAL! With a restart ANY phone gets normal, if it doesn't, they you've installed some Malware or Affecting software
4.Fast charging isn't great? Remember this is Fast Charge 2.0 Only, not 3.0 and this phone doesn't have USB-C. but still, 30 Mins for 60% is great
5.Battery is great? That's the only problem I had with this phone! It runs only 1 Day with moderate usage
Premium looks and House of Marley headphones are great and F-Print Sensor is smooth, these are only the true things, maybe lag is also true, but it doesn't reach upto THAT mark which you said. And also as I always say, the camera, F-Print and few performance enhancements will be made after the update.
Anonymous, 18 Feb 2016I want to ask u a question.Have u seen an apple's iphone 4s also which must be 4-5 years old?h... moreI have used many Apple devices and also have found out why they have good performance. Reasons why Apple gets better performance:
1. It's OWN OS which stops upto 95% to enhance performance in app. The Home Screen
2. No Jailbreaking or Rooting process can help you uninstall or install iOS from/ in a device, which means iOS runs ONLY on Verified Devices and can't go off Verified Devices
3. Apple rechecks and customizes ALL apps to the level of it's phone's abilities etc before letting it into the App Store
4.Everyone agrees that iOS is not a complete OS. So, one more reason, incomplete OS
Android can't manage so well because it can run practically on ANY device! Android apps are checked for Viruses and are not customised to EVERY part for some specific phone, not even for their OWN Nexus Series
NP Pal, 08 Feb 2016'iPhone is better than Yutopia in any day'? Were you serious while typing this?? I know iPhone... moreI want to ask u a question.Have u seen an apple's iphone 4s also which must be 4-5 years old?have observed the processing speed,touch quality and camera even after using a phone about 4-5 yearsyears.iphone 4s just has a dual core processors of 1ghz and 512 mb ram only but its processing is best amongst all dual core phones till date in market.If apple's 4s s is doing that grate job then what to say aboutabout 5 and 6 series iphones.If you see iphone 5 which has 1.3ghz dual core and 1gb ram and compare its processor with samsung galaxy note 3,lg g2,sony xperia z2 which all have octa core processors and more then 2 gbs ram you will see every thing every app opens up first in apple.If you dont believe my words then you can see a speed test video on youtube between iphone 5 and any other phone.With dula core processors apple is doing best job then think what will happen if apple starts using an octacore.Apple iphone is best phone in world's market it really worth its price group.If you purchase an iphone you can use it more the 5 years if you dont harm it physicaly.No phone is better then iphone till date.Iphone is best nothing else GO FOR IT!!
The phone is just good on papers. Take everything best and put it all together, doesnt make the phone good. I used it for 5 days and returned back due to defective piece. Reason: The phone heats up, even when on standby (company gives a plastic case in the box, which surely shams the heat.) The Saturn ring of the camera came out within a couple of days, with the glue still wet. Pathetic. The flash cover was on the floor then. luckily I could find it. On day 3 of usage, the phone hung and was not normal even after 15 - 20 restarts. I had to factory reset the phone. The fast charging isnt that great. It takes more than 30 mins for those 60% charge. Battery, premium looks and Headphones from House of Marley are the best. Luckily I didnt have issues with the fingerprint sensor and it worked like a butter for me. The biggest let down was the camera. 21mp is a joke. Even my Nokia N8 takes better pictures even now. Low light images are highly pixelated. And if you zoom in, the pics are very unclear. You dont expect that from a 21 mp camera. What helped me make up my mind to end my association with Yu, was the pathetic after sales service. The company claims for 15 working days replacement warranty. My wife's phone (Yu Yureka) is dead since 2 months now. Even after following up with Yu for the replacements, they just give you dates that you have to wait for. They have some technical issue that doesnt seem to resolve for ages.
i like yu yuotopia i am not yet buy this but i like spec and especially it made by indian company of yu and micromax that's great even one small company ready to compete with some mnc especially china makes its great Mr pal you told updates when it begins let tel i want to buy it
prateek34, 16 Feb 2016mi4 was also high end phone from xiomi. mi5 is coming with snapdragon820 which will be better ... moreMi 5 is at any day better than Yutopia? It is rumored itself with a lower front Camera Resolution, Worse battery (It is a Li-Po and Yutopia has a High-Density Li-po which is 10% better), lesser resolution screen, Same memory and RAM. Now a phone will get lesser than expected (in many cases). If you say getting an older SoC is useless with a newer SoC in view, then WHY the HECK do people buy SD 801 of Mi 4? SD 806 of LG? Old Chipsets of MediaTek etc? Is it that only Yutopia is NOT to be opted for having older (Just 1 Year, and also the most powerful at this moment) chipset? Man don't be SO impractical and judgmental! People buy the old SD 410 of Moto G 3rd Gen at about 15,000 whereas we have newer SD 615's at 10,000 and other SD 410's at 5,000. The same applies here. Both Mi 5 and Yutopia are competing phones but both are equally good (and Yutopia is good EVEN with the rumors) and both can be bought ( Yutopia will soon get better)

prateek34, 15 Feb 2016buddy there are lots of problems in yutopia. how can you say to buy a phone today & wait f... moreMan, I NEVER said go for it now and wait for update. And also, I am not telling people to 'HOPE' for the Update to solve the problems, I am ASSURING the solution to them with the update. I just suggested to buy after it's update. And also, this is also Budget-Friendly, isn't it. Also, Mi5 is also the first Mi Phone to handle SUCH a High-Power CPU and specs, so WHAT ASSURANCE are YOU giving of Mi5's being 'THE PERFECT' budget phone! If you will try showing Xiaomi's history of good phones, even Yu has a history of BEST phones
pathetic brand and service. i am chasing to get my phone replaced for more than a month with out much luck. I recommend not to buy phones from YU or Micromax.

I bought myself a Yu Yureka because my friend suggested it, I got angry with it and stopped many people from buying it (LIKE AN IDIOT!!) and now I regret that I stopped many people. Today, it performs like what they claim it to be 'PLAY GOD' after it's update of Cyanogen 12.1/ Android 5.1.1. Even the Yu Yuphoria was like that before it's Cyanogen 12.1/ Android 5.1.1 Update, but now ALL THE YU devices ROCK according to their specs after update. So, WAIT and WATCH the Yutopia

The Yutopia is less than 2 Months old and you have used it for 4 Months!!! And by which ***** means are you saying that Xiaomi has Better Quality? In doing nothing? My Xiaomi broke 6 times in 8 months with a case! And has many bugs related to contacts being usable by Hike & Whatsapp
Man, if you have observed ANY YU device till date, you will see that EVERY PIECE WAS A SHIT before it got it's update. Even the Yu Yuphoria was worst in performance before it's Cyanogen 12.1/ Android 5.1.1 Update, but now ALL THE YU devices ROCK according to their specs after update. So, WAIT and WATCH the Yutopia.
This phone is absolutely junk, and this guy NP Pal is obviously some kind of sales agent working for YU.
The camera is pathetic and all photos have a yellowish tinge, the build quality is absolutely rubbish, the phone is plagued with bugs, it overheats like hell, the black circular disc around the camera just peeled off on its own. The fingerprint sensor ain't that accurate and don't go by that high screen resolution because as far as colour, contrast ratio and vividness is considered the screen quality is just pathetic. The loud speaker quality is just plain horrid.
I was so fed up that once I went to a YU Authorised Service Centre and shouted on the phone repairing guy, and literally threw this phone at them in a fit of rage, seriously I'm pissed off with this phone and this brand.
If you are planning to buy this phone it would be a better idea to just take your money and put it on fire.
Better than iPhone you say eh!.....no effing way....forget about Apple iPhone and Motorola, comparing this phone with Apple iPhone and Motorola phones is like comparing Tata Nano with Mercedes Benz S Class sedan and Hummer, this junk doesn't even compare with run of the mill brands like Oppo, Lenovo, Huawei, and ZTE.
I just bought one after reading all I could about it, and since i,ve had about 8 samsungs an 2 oppo,s 2 xperia,s I reqocnized a good phone right away. it should arrive in about 3 weeks, Ill post any findings should there be interest for.
