The new Yuphoria is priced at Rs 6,999, while the Yu Yureka was priced slightly higher at Rs 8,999. The registration model for the Yuphoria remains the same, with the sale exclusively being held on Amazon India. The first sale of the Yuphoria is set for May 28, while the Yureka sale has been discontinued.

Display

In terms of size, the Yu Yureka features a 5.5-inch screen while the Yu Yuphoria features a slightly smaller 5- inch screen. Both the smartphones have a 720p display that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Design

Talking about the design, the Yuphoria features a metal body design with premium build quality, giving it an added zeal when compared to the Yureka’s plastic body. With the Yuphoria, the company has re-invented the design structure and have introduced a centre-aligned theme, with the audio jack, camera and USB port all situated in the centre. The power and the volume buttons have also been glued together, in what the company calls the 3-key element.

Processor

Yu Yureka is powered by a 64-bit 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 octa-core chipset. In comparison, the Yuphoria is powered by 64-bit 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processer. Both the phones are equipped with 2GB RAM. On paper, the Yureka looks good but we can only ascertain the capabilities of both processors, when we review the device.

Storage

Yu Yureka offers 16GB onboard memory, with the option to expand it up to 32GB via a microSD slot. In comparison, the Yu Yuphoria offers only 16GB of in-built storage.

Cameras

When it comes to photography, the Yu Yureka features a 13-megapixel primary camera while the Yuphoria features only a 8-megapixel rear sensor. Both the smartphones have LED flash and autofocus capabilities. The secondary camera for both the phones is at 5-megapixel.

Battery

On the battery front, the Yu Yureka wins again with 2,500mAh battery underneath, while the Yu Yuphoria is a bit behind packing a 2,230mAh battery. Yu Yuphoria comes with quick charging technology that promises to juice up the battery to 65 percent in just 45 minutes.

Software

Even though Yureka runs on Cyanogen OS 11 out-of-the-box, it has received the OS 12 update and all the purchased Yureka smartphones run on the latest Lollipop version of Cyanogen. In comparison, the Yuphoria runs on the latest Lollipop-based Cyanogen OS 12 out-of-the-box. It comes with cool features like App themer which allows individual customization of each app, and Truecaller integration.

Connectivity

Connectivity wise, the two phones offer the same features and include dual-SIM support, LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Conclusion

The Yuphoria is priced lesser than the Yureka at Rs 6,999, and sees some compromises on processor, camera and expandable storage options. However, the company has gone for a complete design overhaul with the metal body design to give it a premium feel. Even with the small compromises, Yuphoria is definitely worth the price tag attached to it.
