Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G Vs Micromax YU Yureka

I recently ordered the YU Yureka from Amazon and was delighted to get my hands on it. The phone is very light and is quite feature rich. At the same time, one of my friends came for a visit with his new Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G. As you can guess, a long debate started on the topic – which one is the best Smartphone under INR 10,000.

We decided to compare everything between the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G and the YU Yureka in order to come to a conclusion. In the end we had a winner. Let’s jump straight to the unbiased comparison.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G Vs YU Yureka


Appearance

As I have mentioned earlier, the YU Yureka is a very lightweight and slim device. It weighs only 155 grammes and is 8.8 mm thick. The Redmi Note 4G is bulkier at 185 grammes and 9.5 mm in thickness. With the Yureka, the front and back panel have a different feel as compared to the Note 4G which is uniformly textured. Although the Redmi Note 4G’s red touch buttons are more striking, the YU Yureka is the winner in this category as it is very lightweight.

Winner: YU Yureka

Hardware

Both the Redmi Note 4G and the YU Yureka boast of a 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 720p, 2GB RAM, 13MP rear and a 5MP front camera respectively. The major difference is that the Yureka is powered by a 64-bit octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, while the Xiaomi Note 4G is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. The YU Yureka supports dual SIM connectivity while the Note 4G is a single SIM phone. Both the phones support 4G.

Yureka has more storage, 16GB as compared to 8GB of the Note 4G. Expandable memory, however is limited to 32 GB in the Yureka while the Note 4G can be expanded up to 64 GB. The Note 4G has a 3100 mAh battery against the 2500 mAh battery on the Yureka. Overall, the YU Yureka looks the better Smartphone because of the 64-bit octa core processor and dual SIM connectivity.

Winner: YU Yureka

Multimedia

Even though both the Smartphone’s have similar cameras, the picture quality of the Note 4G was a little better than the YU Yureka. The Yureka comes with AudioFX controls, however the Note 4G delivers better sound quality. Display is quite good on both the devices. Redmi Note 4G wins in this category by a small margin.

Winner: Redmi Note 4G

Software and UI

This is a tricky one – Cyanogen Vs MIUI. I love the Cyanogen on the YU Yureka which gives me the freedom to customize almost everything on my phone. While the geeks will love this feature, the non-geeks will definitely like the more colourful MIUI on the Redmi Note 4G which is easier on the eye and offers a few handy features. One of them being the option to launch the torch from the lock screen by long pressing the home key. Both the phones run on Android Kitkat 4.4. Considering the fact that only a few people will go ahead with customizing fonts, icons and everything else, Redmi Note 4G is the winner in this category.

Winner: Redmi Note 4G

Performance

This is a no-brainer. The YU Yureka steals the show with its 64-bit octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor which can easily handle HD gaming and multitasking. The battery life of the Yureka is not that great though and you need to recharge the phone at the end of the day. The 3100 mAh battery life on the Note 4G will easily last the entire day.

Winner: YU Yureka

Value for Money

Both the phones can be purchased online only. The Redmi Note 4G is available on Flipkart at INR 9,999 and the YU Yureka is available on Amazon at INR 8,999. You will have to register for the sale to in order to buy the Yureka. Both the Smartphone’s are available under INR 10,000, Yureka is a little lighter on the pocket though.

Winner: YU Yureka

Verdict

Both the Smartphone’s offer superb value for money and pack some amazing features. The YU Yureka has a better processor, is lightweight and Cyanogen offers various customization options. Redmi Note 4G on the other hand has a good battery life and better multimedia features. Both the Smartphone’s are available under INR 10,000 and the consumer’s have two great options to choose from, which is awesome. At the end of the day, it all boils down to your requirement.

    Hi Arpit,
    Awesome post buddy.
    I have already seen a video comparison of these two gadgets.
    Yureka has become a wonder child in our market. It is giving us unbelievable specs under 10k. Its popularity would have been decreased a bit if Xiaomi launched Note 4G with octacore processor and dual SIM feature.
    As far as I am concerned, the foremost thing I look into before buying a phone is nothing but its processor.
    Glad to know you own a Yureka Arpit bro. Let me know how was your experience of getting one, as I am also thinking to buy.
    Keep going bro. Keep rocking.
    Regards,

    Hi Arpit,

    As time grows closer, I need to upgrade my phone. I am currently using an IPhone 5 I do have to make a decision within 2 months weather or not I’ll go with the Iphone or a Smartphone.

    This has been a help for me because as I am researching, it does get a bit confusing. Thanks for reviewing this.

    Hi Donna,

    Welcome to Tech.Cloud. I am glad to know that you found the review useful. iPhone 5 is a great phone and if you are looking for a change, go for an Android smartphone. I know it is difficult to make a switch from an Apple product to Android, but you will like the feel of Android. You have lot of options available as well, based on your preference.

    Do let me know if you need any help with your selection :)

    Another phone in this category is Lava Iris X8 with almost same features as Yu …..the only differences are its screen is 5 inches and front and rear cameras are 2mp and 8mp. I am also looking to buy yureka by this week but it would be great if they could have increased its battery a little upto 2800 mAh. However, it has octa core processor so i think battery will last at least one day.
