If you have been looking to buy a new smartphone for yourself or someone else, this may be the right time. There are several models that suit various needs of customers and still feel light on the pocket.
For instance, we picked up some of the best selling handsets to compare them by their specifications, features and price and finally give a verdict on which one is the worthiest of all. In the article, we are comparing Xiaomi Mi 4i, Zenfone 2 ZE550ML and Yu Yureka. There may be several other smartphones that can be compared rightfully, but the selected handsets are popular and well-known among shoppers.
The comparison of all specs and features is to determine a smartphone of greater value for your money, at least on paper. By looking at different specs individually, we will compare all three phones' display, processor, battery, price and more.
It is extremely important that smartphone vendors price their smartphone effectively to attract consumers. Xiaomi Mi 4i and Asus Zenfone 2 ZE550ML, which is the base model in the Zenfone 2 series, stand together on the pricing scale, at ₹12,999. As for the Micromax Yu Yureka, which has been in the market for quite some time, the selling price is ₹8,999.
With similar pricing, Asus Zenfone 2 and Xiaomi Mi 4i are at par with specs. The display on Asus Zenfone 2 is 5.5 inches with Gorilla Glass 3 protection and 178-degree viewing angle screen. Xiaomi also packs a similar display but it is slightly smaller at 5 inches and offers JDI screen protection. Both handsets boast Full HD resolution but Mi 4i shoots the pixel density to 441ppi while Zenfone 2 has 403ppi. In comparison, Yu Yureka has a big display but lacks similar resolution. Measuring at 5.5 inches diagonally, Yureka offers 720p resolution with 267ppi.
All three smartphones weigh equally in the camera department. The rear sensor in all three phones is equipped with 13 megapixels with flash. The front camera in Xiaomi Mi 4i, Zenfone 2 and Yu Yureka is at 5 megapixels. Real-time comparison of all three cameras will give a closer look at the quality of the images but on paper they seem similar.
Xiaomi offers the biggest battery unit on board. The Mi 4i is powered by a 3120mAh battery while the Zenfone 2 comes second with its 3000mAh unit. Yu Yureka has the smallest of all, 2,500mAh, but the low screen resolution is a considerable factor in deciding which phone lasts longer.
The higher price tag in Zenfone 2 and Mi 4i calls for a better processor. The Asus smartphone is powered by a 64-bit 2.3GHz Intel Atom processor while the Xiaomi Mi 4i packs second-gen 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor with Cortex-A53 cores clocking speeds at 1.7 GHz and the other four at 1.1 GHz. Yu Yureka packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core SoC clocking speeds at 1.5GHz.
RAM and Storage
There is a tie once again as all three smartphones feature same RAM and storage capacity. Xiaomi Mi 4i has 16GB onboard storage but lacks a microSD card slot, while Asus Zenfone 2 and Yu Yureka comes with 16GB internal memory and microSD card support for further expansion. There's a 2GB RAM in all three phones.
Depending on what buyers are looking for in a smartphone, all three phones have their pros and cons. If you are short on budget, Yureka smartphone is the best option to go with. If you are looking for a better screen, lasting battery and a more recent processor, Zenfone 2 and Mi 4i take the front seat. Photo enthusiasts can choose any smartphone in this comparison as the equipped sensors look the same on paper.
