Micromax YU YUREKA - Huge Features over Cyanogen MOD at a Cheaper price

Micromax is known at offering amazing features in terms of hardware at a cheaper price in India. It provided quad core and octa core processor mobiles accompanied by 2 to 3 gigs of RAM along with decent cameras at a pretty cheaper price. My concern was that these processors failed to reach the appropriate benchmark scores when compared to other processors with same juice. Most of the Micromax mobiles were powered with ARM7 processors and these processors failed to reach up the expectations when compared to Snapdragon processors in terms of speed and performance.

But the new YU YUREKA preferably called as Micromax YUREKA comes with amazing features like Octa core Snapdragon 615 processor along with 2 GB RAM. Most of the features are similar to HTC Desire 820. But the difference comes with price. YUREKA is available at less than half of the price of HTC Desire 820. Lets dig into the details.
