I thought of writing this post after meeting one of my friend in college. Since the Amazon is launching the flash sale of the Micromax Yureka Yu Android Mobile Phone device, its very hard to even seen the device in physical world. I was also thinking of buying the same phone but due to Micromax Yureka Heating Problem, I changed my decision and went for other good android device like Asus Zenfone 5. The main reason behind changing my decision is heating issue of Micromax YU only.
Since this Android device is having powerful specs like 1.5 GHz Octa Core CPU, Adreno 405 GPU at 550MHz, 4G support, 5.5 inch corning gorilla glass screen having the resolution of 1280 * 720, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 13 MP Rear Camera and 5 MP Front facing camera, 2500mAh battery and last but not the least Cynogen OS 11, it was expected to get heated but user can’t even hold the device because of the temperature.
Micromax Yureka Heating Problem Reason
Before buying, I researched for many long hours and found that Yureka Has the heating problem and sometimes, the temperature goes above 50 degree Celsius. Means the user can’t even hold the device in his hands. As I told you, Today, I met my friend who actually owns yureka device and he himself faced same issue of heating. He said that The battery life was of around 3 to 3:30 hours. And its a common problem. After contacting Amazon, Micromax, they said that they would replace the device but he denied to do that since he knows its a common problem and found the actual reason and solution. The real reason behind Micromax Yureka Heating Problem is media storage service. Its a software bug.
