A good first attempt, but not quite the utopia that was promised

from tech2

So is this really the most powerful phone on the planet? Well, not really. We aren’t saying it is a bad phone. For a company that is just one year old, Yu Televentures have designed a good looking phone with top of the line internal specifications. But there are issues with the phone – most of them on the software side which can be fixed with future software updates. The metal body does heat up when using heavy applications due to the Snapdragon 810 chipset. Among the good points you have the camera performance, the tweaking ability of the Cyanogen OS, a wonderful design, lovely display and good earphones.

Great attempt from an Indian smartphone make

from Fone Arena

Overall, the YU YUTOPIA is a great attempt from an Indian smartphone maker. The smartphone is extremely solid and is quite a looker, although we hope YU gets more colours for the device. Now, in terms of why we think that the phone is not worth considering because of the price segment it belongs to.

The Indian Express

Work reasonably well with great specs on paper

from The Indian Express

For a first-time flagship, Yutopia is not a bad effort at all. It’s got all the specs on paper, has a nice design, and performs reasonably well. The 2K screen is great for those who like watching videos and the rear camera does a decent job too. But does Yutopia make other flagships, which come with their legacy and brand value, seem redundant? For now, I can’t say it does.

NDTV

Good build and finish, sharp display

from NDTV

The Yutopia is certainly a good first premium effort from Yu but it's far from the utopian smartphone that the company envisioned. Simply cramming in top-end components to fit a desired budget doesn't necessarily guarantee the best product. The Yutopia does have its share of redeeming qualities like the excellent 2K display, very good build and finish, quick charging, great multimedia and services integration in the OS and quality bundled accessories.

However, there's plenty of scope for improvement for the next version. The current fingerprint sensor is a bit of a hit-or-miss affair, battery life could have been better, overall camera performance feels underwhelming and there's really nothing new to say about the heating issue from the 810 chip. We would also like to see NFC and maybe wireless charging included in the next iteration.
