YU Yureka Editor Rating:
YU has surprised many people when they released the Yureka handset. The Yureka is one of the best devices Indian consumers can purchase for Rs. 8,999, if not the best. It sports more than solid specifications, and the Cyanogen OS installed on this device is a huge plus for some people, while others don't care for it as much, but it definitely adds to the experience. Yureka also offers solid build quality, it's sturdy enough and it feels really good in the hand. The design is not exactly flashy, but if you like industrial build, you'll be more than happy with it. To wrap things up, Yureka is one of the best devices you can buy in this price range, and that says a lot.
