Yu Yuphoria Vs Lenovo A6000 Plus Vs Moto E 4G Vs Redmi 2

All the 4 smartphones are great value for money and are the best mobiles that you can buy right now. But what is the right choice for you; do you need better performance or stability or camera. You will be clear after reading pros & cons of all smartphones.

There is no perfect smartphone, heating and other issues can happen with all smartphones, in some models there are more quality issues compared to others.

All the 4 Smartphones – Micromax Yu Yuphoria, Moto E 4G, Redmi 2 & Lenovo A6000 Plus are 4G LTE smartphones and use the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64 Bit Quadcore processor clocked at 1.2 Ghz.

Performance wise they are all running on the same processor, so not too much difference, however the Lenovo A6000 Plus and Yu Yuphoria have 2 GB RAM which is advantageous.

Though Lenovo A6000 plus has been plagued with lots of bloatware by Lenovo; which reduces the amount of free Ram.  Motorola Moto E 4G is  best optimized in terms of software and Hardware integration. Initial reports for the Yu Yuphoria are positive, but it again suffers from occasional lags and rear camera quality.

Verdict – Yu Yuphoria Vs Lenovo A6000 Plus Vs Moto E 4G Vs Redmi 2

Boy ‘O’ Boy it is quite difficult to decide a single winner here. As there are pros and cons with each of these device.  I have pointed out what you can expect before purchasing the smartphone, so you can make an informed decision. All 4 smartphones are solid in performance and Pros outweighs the cons in each case.

Yu Yureka has affordable price and packs every thing, if specs are more important for you along with Android Lollipop it is an excellent choice.

Lenovo A6000 plus is thin, light and stylish with great specs, storage and Dolby sound it is an excellent smartphone to buy for Rs. 6,999.

Motorola Moto E 4G undoubtedly has better quality and is mostly issue free, a bit expensive but then it offers best user experience.

Xiaomi Redmi 2 scores low on the UI though again some users love the MIUI, I am more of a purist and like pure android experience. It comes with the better camera of all four and is thin and light weight.
