The name to this phone was given by consumers itself which they call a Crowd-Sourced Naming. We expected a larger device with higher specifications than Yureka with a higher price tag as well, but the cyanogen backed company Yu was to break our expectations and release their budget phone with a great set of specifications.

At the very first impressions, Yureka had a very low sound which actually did suck at times! but with their Lollipop update it was louder a bit. But Yuphoria will be more enhanced than other devices as well which they compared withSamsung Galaxy A3 and HTC 620. Yu has teamed up with AAC Technologies and Wolfson Pure Sound to provide users their enhanced speakers. Yu also has more like Apple headphones included.
This is the part where most of the people want to read. Yureka had a great camera, but Yuphoria also isn’t behind, it has an 8MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, HDR, 1.4 μpixel size and 1080p Video Recording with LED Flash.
The Front camera is a 5MP shooter with f/2.0 and 85° wide angle lens. Camera is definitely the best in this price, but wait we have more for you the design of camera on the back side has Saturn Ring style structure which definitely feels good and will help in branding trademark for YU.
