Cyanogen working hard on 64-bit Lollipop build for Yureka

Yu Yureka debuted in the Indian market last month and it followed an impressive sales graph since then. Around a month ago, at the launch, Rahul Sharma, co-founder of Yu, also announced that the Yureka will be the first handset to get the Lollipop-version of the Cyanogen. He also promised at the event that the Yu will receive Over-The-Air (OTA) updates every month.

Now, a latest tweet by the Cyanogen official Twitter account says,”YUplaygod fans: We’re hard at work on your Lollipop build, the first Cyanogen OS 64-bit build!”. This tweet clearly states that the Lollipop update might be just around the corner for the Yureka users.

A flashback to Yureka specifications, It sports a 5.5-inch display with 720p (HD) screen resolution, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The phone has 16GB internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.

The phone is priced for Rs 8,999 and is exclusively sold through Amazon India, in a form of flash sales.

I got this beautiful device after the 2nd flash sale. It’s a really amazing phone. Display is awesome, FHD video playback is not a big issue albeit the phone officially supports upto 720p videos. Wi-Fi and HSPA+ speeds are pretty good. No lags so far, maybe due to the huge 2 GB RAM and a 64-bit octa-core QSD 615 SoC. The 13 MP Sony Exmor R lens in the rear camera enables the user to capture really great shots during daytime, low light imaging isn’t that great. The 5 MP front facing brings out intricate details in the selfies that… Read more »

Pls say the three things..

1.Can u see through full bright sunlight at Road??What is the quality of display for call and video.

2.How much continuous 3g browsing or game playing time in a charge.

3.what is the actual user memory …you can get for apps or games. Is there any diversified or a single memory.

In Redmi Note 4G the actual user memory is 5GB out of total 8GB.

1- Yes you can see through full sunlight on road. display quality of calls are very good, havent tried video calling yet.
2- I use 3G entire day with my push exchange on all day and night and easily get 1 day of charge with games, browsing, whatspp, corporate account emails, gmail and some installing uninstalling app checking this that all day along.
3- actual user memory is 12.8 GB and you can use 32 GB memory card so toal 45 GB memory to use which is more than sufficient for mobiles (its not laptop 🙂 )

Now that Microsoft is investing in CyanogenMod with the motive of taking Android away from Google, I really dont know what the future of CyanogenMod holds. As of now I’m simply waiting for CM12S for my Oneplus One global edition, which I will manually update through recovery.

*Won’t work out much. *There are several propietary Google APIs as part of Google Play Services that several apps depend upon. If Cyanogen decides to break away from Google for Cyanogen OS they can’t have Google Play Services installed on their ROMs and that will lead to compatibility issues with a lot of apps. *Most major manufacturers are part of the Open Handset Alliance and being a part of that requires them to ship Google’s version of Android and in case they decide to break away from that and ship devices with a forked version of Android they lose their… Read more »

I am using this phone since more than a month now and I am satisfied. In few terms, Mi is better as per configurations but when you actually compare it with the features and experience, YU is better as it supports 64 bit arch and snapdragon octacore is real plus. I used more than 30 apps at the same time and played subway surfer, temple run and few other games and use many apps but no lag at all. camera quality is awesome and gives real color, even better than iphone screen. have somewhat root permission by default so you… Read more »

I have used it around 7dayes everything is OK bt back camara is not good in low light battery backup is the main down fall and a little bit of heating Aries . And the last issue is service which is not available in every location and it will take almost 5to 7 dayes to resolve you complain .

Hi Chaitanya, I have received the Yu Yureka for the review purpose, and I will be using for the next 7-10 days and publish my thoughts about it on TT. I know it has been late for a review, but Micromax guys didn’t have enough units to provide to reviewers.

My hand set Redmi Note 4G. A single charge can use atleast 7hours for 3g net surfing+ gaming, and no heating issues. Only at night flash light picture quality is bit blackish but without flash in very low light superb picture without zooming.
