YU-Yureka I've found it, am I going to PLAY GOD! or Mi

I was overwhelmed to have been invited to the "The Zeus of Phone", so excited I was reminded of Archimedes crying "Eureka!" Had a friendly banter with Rahul Sharma, Founder, Yu & Team Cyanogen Inc. It's been close to the 3rd falsh sale the & urge to own is getting better by the day!

First hand impressions read: both phones were at logger heads at each other Stunning 5.5” HD IPS display, 1280x720 pixels HD Resolution with 267 PPI colour depth • CORNING GORILLA GLASS 3 with Oleophobic Coating.  Yureka, features 64-bit octa core Qualcomm Snapdgraon 615 processor, versues Redmi Note 4G runs on a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor.

The graphic processor too, provides enhanced visual engine as Yureka stands tall 1.5 GFIz Octa-Cora 64-bit CPU • Integrated Adreno 405 GPU ii0550MHz • MSM8939 LTE Chipset versus Redmi Note 4g, has vivid with its Adreno 305 graphics processor.

Fair enough  for both units to be on 2GB DDR 3 RAM, DDR3 RAM Uses 30% less energy as compared to DDR2. CYANOGEN OS 11 gave an optimal experience : Encryption and Data Privacy taken to a brave new world!

13MP REAR CAMERA/ 5MP Front CAMERA: cyanogen camera empowers you to an all-powerful yet seamless experience. Take a picture or video right from the lock screen and pause time with slo-Mo to relive every moment. • 13MP back camera with 5P Largan Blue Lens • Sony IMX135 CMOS Sensor ,Live filters Exposure control Burst mode • Video mode with time-lapse and Slo-Mo. Redmi  f/2.2, 28 mm wide-angle lens captures, scenic pictures... including a pretty decent depth of field.

4G LTE is the order of the day, governed by both units ( I have tethered 4G here...)  : Yureka comes with dual SIM (4G and 3G MicroSim, could consider to use data on one SIM and voice calling on the other) connectivity, while the Redmi Note 4G is very much a single SIM Unit.

Yureka 's parking lot is of 16 GB ( 32 GB of expandable) against 8 GB on the Redmi Note 4G ( 64 GB of expandable). Redmi Note 4G is packaged with 3100 mAh battery versus 2500 mAh Yureka.

Flash Sales ...seem to be the trend ....
