Very bad service response. I bought the YU Yutopia via amazon.in on 16th of January 2016 its hardly 2 months and the cover of the camera just came off. I have asked them for a solution they told me they will replace the phone within 48 hrs and its been more than 5 days and I haven't received any reply from their end. Buy YU phones at your own risk.

I saw your old comments, you were in constant fight with people that this is worst and even a rupee on this is waste. Yes man, I told that this gave me the best experience, but I didn't exaggerate to this extent, saying DSLR comparison of photos, Comparison to Harman Speakers etc. I also told in my review that the DTS Speakers offered were not as great as the House of Marley ones and are not exceptional. I did tell that Fingerprint Sensor worked well for me but maybe I forgot specifying, it DID pester in the first few days, in fist week I wanted to throw this, but soon it changed. In first week maybe it was also storing our daily routine of buying things online, getting a cab etc for the AroundYu App which has come with this

also this phone does not have IR blaster and NFC which is plus point because it would consume battery of my phone. and who needs such useless feature. who likes to control your tv, ac, music player, projector etc with your phone.
final word this is best phone in world. no phone can beat this. iphone 6s, samsungs upcoming s7, lg's upcoming g5, htc's upcoming m10 all are crap and waste of money. these phone are costly and still lags in every department than yutopia. also after sale service of yu is great. no waiting if you face any problem.

I am an Android user since the first and I just hate the way iOS works! Better not comment on the first device you have used after a OS shift! That will always be the WORST experience. Use Android for an year or so, get used to it, then comment! iOS has nothing special to show off except Siri, Android has a whole list! Custom UI's, Self-Programmable OS, Ok Google, An Infinite list of Utility Apps on the Play Store..... And a lot more

And guess what now I'm pissed off with it. The guys who made this junk essentially devoured my money. So I have right to be pissed off at them and bash this piece of junk.
They say it got a 21 megapixel camera but guess would mate the 8 megapixel camera of my iPhone 5s is leagues ahead of the so called 21 megapixel camera on this phone.
It has 4 gigs of RAM but guess what my iPhone 5s with just 1 gigs of RAM multitasks way better than this phone.
This phone doesn't connect to my Mac so transferring file pictures and music is absolute pain. But on my iPhone I can simply synchronise all my pictures and music with my Mac without much work.
No matter what others say, this phone can be never compared to an iPhone.
And about the price factor, well go to Paytm and you can buy the 32GB iPhone 5s for just 25K after cashback, so why would anyone buy this phone. Just buy the iPhone 5s.
this phone is one amazing device i must say....iv'e imported this to germany with the help of my friend and you can call me idiot but i don't mind coz i know what this phone is and it's capabilities.....i must say this is really good.....lots of rumors are around that this device is bad and over heats.....over heating in yutopia is like bangladesh winning asia t20 cup....so not true...i play mc5 ,nova 3 and asphalt 8 on a stretch of 45 min to 1 hour and i must say yu has done a great job of optimizing 810....UI is lag free ...finger print sensor is okay..needs to be improved...cameras are awesome....even my german friends love them...battery backup is okay for a Quad hd display......build quality is awesome...a bit slippery though....on and all....a great phone....buy it for it's features not for it's brand or is made in India........rumors are baseless.....

8.Connectivity (10/10): People, please STOP that rumor of Wi-Fi and BT being bad! I called up 3 of my friends with their phones.Their phones were Samsung Galaxy J7, Lenovo P1 and the other guy has some Xiaomi, he never reveals it's model name. I sent them a huge review on a Group Message on Hike and after they came, I also sent that review to my old G4 and my Sis's iPhone. Then, I copy-Pasted it on FB, I told all of them to post it AT Once, the Yutopia did it first! The Yutopia also did the following first, Open Minecraft, Install High-End game (Asphalt 8), Connect to Wi-Fi network (I 'Forget'ed the WI-Fi pwd on all devices and re-typed and told all to click at once.). VoLTE is also usable. The BT is some kind of God's Magic! This connected and successfully took 3 photos from an iPhone! NO Phone has EVER done that!
9. Fingerprint Sensor (7.5/10): The score is the accuracy of the Sensor, 75% is acceptable as my sister's iPhone 5 (Apple's first Fingerprint attempt) has less than 40%. This is also Yu's first attempt.
10. Sensors (10/10): Very accurate! Has every sensor! For sure this aids gaming to the core.
11. Battery (9/10): On moderate usage- 1 hour gaming and average usage throughout day, it comes for 1 day easily. Charges very quick too. For those idiots who told that this should get Quick Charge 3.0, go to the Qualcomm website and check, SD 810 doesn't support QC 3.0, then from where the '**' would Yu get Quick Charge 3.0
Average Score- 9/10
Final Verdict:. Excellent phone! Is worth a 25,000 if low-quality, over-hyped and false-advertised Apple and Samsung are worth 1 Lakh or 80,000. This is much more worth than other brands like Lenovo, Xiomi, HTC etc. which too come at about same prices.
4. Heating: NONE! Barely crosses Human Body Temperature (37 C) on normal usage and once when I checked on hardcore gaming it was 39.4 C, appreciable as this is a SD 810 with METAL body! Didn't know if 10/10 means Full Heating or None, so didn't give score.
5.Display (10/10): Awesome, is NOT at all confusing. I also neutralized the Screen Tint from Yellow.
6.Audio (9/10) : House of Marley speakers are lovely! I would NEVER afford them probably! I wanted to give 10/10, but In-Built speakers are not in-par with the House Of Marley ones.
7.Camera (9/10): The PDAF was a bit of a headache in the first dew days, later I turned it off, it is now capturing excellent pictures. About the rumor of bad pictures, it does 'capture' bad! While capturing, it shows very blurry and unclear image, but later it displays it better, and speaking of displaying photos on a TV or Laptop, the pics are MUCH better on those screens. It takes time to load Full-Image picture, it waits for 3-Seconds before displaying Full-Res, maybe to save battery, decrease burden on processor or something else, Full-Res image is AWESOME. To be Contd. Word Limit crossed
Yu Yutopia 2 Month User Review
I have used the Yu Yutopia for 2 Months and have also read 2-3 pages of the Yutopia Opinions page and saw many fake rumors, I will also clear a few of them.
1. Build Quality and Design (10/10): Robust and Beautiful. Metallic Unibody helps it from excess damage, this has already survived over 10 drops with absolutely NO damage. The Camera Lens and Saturn Rings falling off is a 100% rumor, the Saturn Rings are Integrated and the Lens is a Largan 6P Integrated Lens.
2.OS and UI (10/10): I have used the Cyanogen to the FULLEST! I got 'That' dream OS/UI which I wanted on my LG G4 since ages! This also give more security compared to my old G4. I combined the feature I wanted from different Launchers. LOVE THIS!
3. Processing and Multi-Tasking (10/10): Yes, as many people say, NOT a True SD 810. Has no heating at all! Performance is also much better than standard SD 810's like OP2, Huawei Honor 7, Nexus 6P. The processor is much gaming oriented, NO ONE can compete it! This processes games faster than standard apps. This took 3.2 Seconds for opening Minecraft till the Menu but took 2.6 seconds to open Facebook. To be cont. Word Limit crossed

It is a One Year old Indian Brand trying to do something big and for the first time! I bet you bought the first attempt of ultimate phones from Samsung, Apple etc. and DID/ DO praise it as it was first attempt so it can be AS BAD AS it wishes to. The same applies here, OH!!! ME!! Why am I going against you?? I have to leave you alone as I promised myself to leave paid reviewers ALONE and don't give them a damn.

All we want is a good quality phone. I would be more happy in spending my 25k on a good quality iPhone 5s made by a good trusted brand from Cupertino rather than this junk made by some cheater company. Because guess what my old iPhone 5s works better than this crap. And before you start speaking all gibberish about 4K recording ability, guess what thanks to Procam 3 I'm able to record 4K videos on my iPhone 5s with ease and guess what unlike this junk phone it doesn't give me headache while using it. This phone essentially shows what is wrong with all these wannabe Indian manufacturers, they just put all so called powerful parts in a bin, throw in an OS which is poorly optimized and then release that junk in the market. Same is true for most of the Chinese manufacturers.

the before mentioned out of the box interface is indeed better off changed right away. apart from that the "underwelming" sensation is nothing less than this beast not using its full potential yet.heating problems i,ve not had since I dont game on any phone. use a dual xeon 64gb for that and that has never let me down. but heh, thtas no phone no ?
phone wise and economic wise this is the direction to go. best value for its money.
nice & sleek phone. I got mine with a rubber protection on the back and a screen protector up front. the battery lasts me a day calling chatting browsing the internet.
what more is there to say ? oh yes, if one onts to its easy to root also.
use windroid a relatively new program that has just been upped to version 3.
I dont get paid by micromax, apple, samsung or any other manufacturor of cells.
sorry to tell u friends its nice cell with back camera stick with useless glue and my cell has structural defect noticed and complained 15 days after we baught, company persons not responding responsibly and still not taken any action or replacement even after 25 days of regular legal complaints, and still not being valued response to customer, my sincere request pls look in to matter and please revert back with positive response.
The World's most powerful Headache.
They give you 2 weeks to return the phone. Smart on their part, since most of us common users will need more than that time to figure out how we've been swindled off 25 K.
Heating issues- Yes. Very disturbing at times.
The handset failed to read SIM card. Had to change the SIM.
21 MP camera- a BIG joke. Maybe they forgot to put the decimal (.) between 2 and 1 there. Seriously, that's more like its quality.
Battery life- barely a day with average use.
Tele/ e-mail Customer services- damp squib. The customer service numbers are inaccessible most of the time (even "please check the number you have dialed"). As per their advice I reset the phone- you know how much time & date consuming it is to keep resetting at every whim of theirs.
The only hope to redeem all these harrowing things is to wait for Yutopia-2. Probably even that is a trap.
25 THOUSAND for an over-promised brick. The WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL HEADACHE.
One doesn't spend 25 K on a device and expect to have pathetic experience in less than a MONTH of use.
I'm planning to go to the service center. Either replace it or give refund.
If it doesn't work, gather a few suffers together (obviously, many are trapped) and even consider taking legal route. 25 K is a BIG amount to be swindled off for a mobile like this. YU has broken customer trust BIG time with this and deserve to pay for the indifferent attitude. What say ?
YU Yutopia is not just a budget phone but it is the best working device in the market with a wide range of specifications .It is the best spec device of 25000 with 4GB ram and 21MP back facing camera compared to high brand phones YU has put its maximum effort for making this phone a reality.
