Pkalekar, 15 Jun 2016Dear Readers,
I will suggest you not to go for any phone of YU. I have a Yuphoria since las... more1. You got a problem with the Yuphoria on the CM 12 Build, then why are you saying not to go for any other Yu Phone? Makes no logic. In fact, the Yuphoria on CM 12.1 is much more improved and has a better overall Working and Experience as compared to the Yuphoria on CM 12. The bigger point is, the Yuphoria is not a phone that stands to compete with the likes of S7 Edge+, Yutopia, Mi 5 etc. so if you were expecting Software Refinement of their level, you are at fault and not the phone. The Yuphoria is much smoother than most phones in it's competition. SIM Related tasks like using Data, Calling, Messaging etc. are the tasks where all phones need a break as they are the most Power Sucking and Heavy tasks.
2. Servicing of no Brand, in Specific is good, all brands provide Sub-Par Servicing as compared to normal Repair Centers. My friend has a J7 and it's Screen Broke in 3 Days after buying with a Pocket-Level fall and it is already 3-Weeks past and Samsung has not yet repaired it and is demanding more time! I have an iPad 2, I didn't use it since 3-4 months, so I tried all the Passwords I remembered, none worked and the iPad got permanently Disabled, the Service Centre demanded INR 5,000 JUST for Hard Resetting the iPad 2, which is less than a Hour's work and I could do for Free via iTunes on my PC(But my PC didn't support the iPad for some reason)! I had an LG G2 and it lost the Capability to Hold charge in less than a Year, so the Service Centre took us 23 Days (3.5 Weeks) to replace the Battery of a "Flagship". Next point is, do you know how many people go to Yu/ Micromax Service Centres for the Shittiest of Reasons? Almost ALL! Some reasons are- I want my Headphones replaced as they are damaged. My phone is overheating, I want it to be replaced. The battery isn't working for long so I want it to be repaired. and many more. If people like this give time for the Service Centre from these stupid problems, then it can give time to Important and Real Replacement and Repairing Issues.
3. You are saying us to got to the "Bug Report" or "Consumer Forum" Section of the Yu website which is obvious to be filled with Complains because firstly, it IS for complains and secondly, people buying Indian Brands come with Preconceived Notions that they are shit, but forget the fact that ALL Phones have problems and can't be perfect and go to the Consumer Court! You see, even Samsung, LG and Apple have equally and even more disturbing Problems, but we being Civilians should be practical and think why it must have happened! Apple has no reason for that shit, Samsung and LG also give me practically Zero Reason why that happened with me, but still, I didn't complain though I can easily get them sued! I too was first frustrated when Yu took 2.5 Weeks for my Phone Repair, but when I saw the pressure on the Yu Service Centres from Idiots who want Servicing for their Stupid things (which I mentioned above and can't be mended!), now I am feeling that Yu takes care of Consumers a lot despite all those Idiots. Yes, some phones come to kill some problems like the Gionee Marathon to kill Battery Problems, Notion Ink Cain to remove Screen Brightness problems, Moto X Force to remove Shttering Screens etc. but no phone is perfect (including the ones I specified) and has it's own cons. Thirdly, you know people remember God only when they are in trouble and Pray, same way people come to the Company's Forums to complain when they face trouble and never to praise. Many people have good Experiences with Yu 21 Out of 23 Yu Users in my Friends Circle and Locality are Happy with it, but NONE of them gave a good review whereas the two people who are having a Bad Experience have a say abusing the company on the Yu Forum! Sums up why Yu has so many complains!

The previous YU phones were quite in satisfactory. I had own the YU yureka. I was disappointed with it.But yestarday 17 June I got this phone YU yunicorn.I am happy with it.I have my luck a chance.It is up to the mark.

Battery backup is so goog that u can go for it.

I will suggest you not to go for any phone of YU. I have a Yuphoria since las... morei agree with your comment bro . YU brand give very poor after sale service
I got my phone replaced in 2 months . Very bad service . aND THE PROBLEM IN MY PHONE IS VERY SMALL ( soft bricked ) the technition of this brands are not good and they
don't know how to wake up any soft bricked phone . first time I got my phone in 2 months ..and after some days it become again soft bricked . So I go to service centre and there they told me that I have to submit MY phone and I will get my phone replaced or
repaired in minimum 1.5 months then I decided to not give my phone to service centre and I tried myself to wake up my phone and I got sucess ...oh techy guys of this company are not good even they don't know how to flash a mobile phone ...very very poor service by YU
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2016My mobile is heating while charging ,do any other Yunicorn users facing that problem????Hey my mobile iz not heating ,check for replacement then.
My mobile heats when I keep hotspot on not while charging
'BIT' Pricey? Are you out of your mind? They are OVERPRICED LIKE SHIT! iPhone 6S Plus 128 GB edition takes less than INR 14,000 for Production and is sold to us at a CRAZY INR 1,00,000!!!!!! Why give nearly 80,000 JUST FOR NO REASON to an American Brand which was always guilty with Frauds and Wrong Doings like iCloud leak, Data Sharing with the NSA, trying to save a TERRORIST by not unlocking his iPhone, Cheating in benchmarks and lots more! It is better to invest INR 10,000 on an Indian Brand which at least won't put out your nudes on to the Internet! These are the problems you need to always worry about on an Apple!
Apple SW are really buggy, I have used most OS of Apple and have always faced troubles! Siri once used to tell Passwords on the Lock Screen, presently you can unlock any Apple device by asking Siri the time on the Lock Screen, the Safari never lets you choose options when you type something and try to choose something below (on Google, GSMarena comparing, Facebook Search). BTW..... Are you saying Apple has customization? Are you for real!? you can't customize ONE thing on iPhones or iPads!
Pkalekar, 15 Jun 2016Dear Readers,
I will suggest you not to go for any phone of YU. I have a Yuphoria since las... moreThe Yuphoria OS might be laggy as compared to other smartphones because it has a very old Chipset and 'Not the Best' RAM and other specs. You can't expect Yutopia, X Play or S6 Edge Levels of Performance from it and if you were expecting that level, you are at fault, not it. As compared to it's Competitors, it is great and Very Smooth. Calling or Messaging or any SIM Related Task is the major process in every phone and many phones need a break there.
See, you are creating a false image in Everyone's Minds. If you go into "Consumer Support" or "Bug Report", NO ONE will come there and praise the phone, you WILL find ONLY complains as it IS for complains.
See, you are complaining of Long Service time, go to the Yureka or other Yu forums on GSMArena and see, people are going to the Service Centre for shitty reasons some of which are here: Headphones have spoiled, I want it replaced from Yu!, My phone is heating, I want to get it repaired!, Battery is short, I want it replaced! and many more shitty reasons which are sure to burn the Time of the Service Centres.
People go to Consumer Court against Yu because it is an easy target and many people have Preconceived Notions about Indian brands that they are shit! They (including you!) don't see the fact that all smartphones, including Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi and all company phones have their own set of Pros and Cons which must be taken as they are! I am very frustrated with Apple and Samsung, one of my problems with Apple is on Yureka Note Forum (GSMArena), it is a serious problem to me, but I didn't go to the Consumer Court because we have to be Logical, Firstly as Humans and Secondly as a part of the World's fastest Growing Economy and understand that we should try to get a brand sued for THOSE reasons which are common for practically EVERY PHONE! Why don't you go to the Consumer Court that iPhone Servicing is manifold more than the cost of BUYING a Micromax or Yu Smartphone (A simple HARD RESET took me INR 5,000 at the Apple Service Centre for iPad 2). What else! Yes, maybe some brands come up with One Phone to get rid of a specific problem, but not all problems can be resolved in ONE phone! See, you are stupid to think only Micromax or Yu smartphones fail, all phones do the same, but maybe, people only complain of Micromax phones, that's all! I am a very happy user of the Micromax Canvas Knight, Yu Yureka Plus and the Yu Yutopia, but still, I didn't post anything positive about the performances! Same with all people, they come up to Micromax only to complain and never praise, no matter how great it performs
Value for Money phone. Don't compare it with more expensive brands. It has much more then what you can get in this money.
My mobile is heating while charging ,do any other Yunicorn users facing that problem????
AnonD-441601, 03 Jun 2016What the heck never seen this brand before. Especially not in my tiny country in middle of E... moreBro!!!....you cannot even compare iphones to this mobile!!...apple...the brand says it all...perfect software and customization...a great mobile to use without worryng about problems...but bit pricey...
I will suggest you not to go for any phone of YU. I have a Yuphoria since last 1 year. But the phone has many problems. The phone's speaker blown out in 6 months. So i got it replaced from YU free as my phone was in warranty. This whole replacement process took more than one month. The replaced phone I got worked fine for 2 months, then again, the new phone started to have the same problem after 4 months. The phone's OS is also laggy and the phone hangs a lot specially while dialling or calling , messaging, camera usage etc.
The warranty policy of YU seems good only on paper. At actual, it's pathetic. Initially, when they launched the YU brand, they said that the phones will get doorstep warranty claims and replacement. But, smartly, they did not mentioned the time period. Many of the users who have submitted there phones to YU for replacement have not got a replacement for 4 to 6 months. And this is not happening for Yuphoria only, in fact all of their launched devices face some kind of hardware or software issue after some months usage.
And now, they have also closed their warranty policy of online complaint and doorstep replcement. Now, you have to submit the faulty phone to nearest Micromax service center and then they send it to YU office at Noida. So, then your phone will either get repaired or replaced, which can take anytime between 1 month to 8 months( Yes, you read it correct.. 8 months). In the meantime, you will have to arrange for a phone for your daily use on your own.
I am not saying this just because I received a bad phone or my phone didn't turn out to be good one. There are many users of YU phones who have even gone to consumer court against YU. Don't just believe what I have said blindly, you can actually check this online. YU have a forum for all of their devices viz. " forums.yuplaygod.com ".
Go to this website. Scroll down the home page. You will see some threads listed under their device names. Click on "Customer Service Support" or 'Bug reporting ,issues, troubleshooting" section of any device such as Yuphoria or Yutopia, and you will come to know the exact status of the YU users these days. How frustrated their existing cutomers are regarding their devices and YU after sales support.
So, being a YU user for the last one month, I will suggest you to not to go for these phones at all. YU phones always seems a very good value for money but believe me, they are not.
Decision is yours.
I am huge fan of Yu. I brought yunicorn from flipkart.
It has many problem.
1.. camera not impressive as yureka
2.. Company has mentioned that yunicorn has FM but after purchasing,No FM Radio there.
3.. Cant use 2 sim wd memory card both at the same time. It means its Hybrid phone.
4.. No customization as Cyanogen has.
5.. it is a just normal phone.
