Always found YU to be the only Indian brand that can give Chinese brands like Xiaomi & Lenovo a good run for their money!


Yes, but money should not be the only criterion. I feel xiaomi has a better software capability and also lot of features. I also have yu yureka plus. The promised upgrade in the specs never happenned.
