that equates to 270 PPI .. that's not bad at all , 1080p on phones is just for marketing without much practical significance..

on the contrary it will help in giving much better GPU performance and longer battery life ..

Re: Xiaomi Killer -- Micromax Yu discussion thread !!

thinking its more important for mobiles to have higher resolution than say a tv
you look at a tv from far away, hold your phone much closer to eyes. If the individual pixels are visible, it's no fun. You don't look at a TV from so close up, or you can see the individual pixels.

Re: Xiaomi Killer -- Micromax Yu discussion thread !!

great specs for the price!
now why would you get a 1080p phone for 10k ?

All the good 1080ps retail for 20k, Wait for the display price to drop.

May be MMX will launch a new phone for 20k, with Snapdragon 810 and 1080p.

rofl man are you serious :lol: ? , do you even know redmi note has the same 5.5 inch 720p screen with same PPI ?

270 PPI is fine , you aren't going to spot individual pixels unless you look really close or compare it with 1080p screen .. as long as it is above 250 ppi its good
above 300 ppi it starts to get meaningless with very less noticeable difference even when you look closely .. the difference is marginal between the two from a normal distance and it isn't worth sacrificing GPU power and battery life... galaxy note 2 had the same PPI and there was never a problem of pixelation .. branded 20k+ phones like desire 820 , sony c3,sony t3,grand 2 as well have the same ppi ..

rest its a difference of personal opinion whether one wants to go with the best possible screen with compromised performance or one wants to go with good enough screen with no compromise on performance .. and no, i am no brand hater or lover.. this phone offers more value for the price than redmi note( at least on paper ), hence i called it xiaomi killer .. No phone is perfect, the problem with this phone could be with battery backup on 4g mode.. lets wait for reviews.. at least somebody is challenging xiaomi in sub 10k phones, that's a good thing for us consumers.. the more the competition the better it is and more choices we have.. i would really hope lenovo,xolo,karbonn and other tier 2 and tier 3 brands jump in as well with 1 model each.. this will propel samsung,sony,htc to lower their prices for mid rangers as well... as for me i prefer tier 1 branded phones only

Re: Xiaomi Killer -- Micromax Yu discussion thread !!

Bloody awesome specs for the price... Add to that Cyanogenmod support... This looks like a winner... :)

But online exclusivity is a bad thing... It should be made available in brick and mortar stores as well to be truly a success...

Re: Xiaomi Killer -- Micromax Yu discussion thread !!

even though this is a rebranded Coolpad mobile, but have to say finally a proper smartphone from Micromax.

Qualcomm chipset so there may be long time development. but most likely this one will be replaced by some other model in 6months.
Cortex A53 which should easily beat existing Mediatek octacores (Cortex A7) seen on every second mobile.
Cyanogenmod 11 out of the box and chances are it'll receive CM12 update but long time support is definitely not on the cards. MMX can't afford it. not at this price.
4G is another welcome feature.
lastly the price is just right. even at 9999 this is anyday better than the flood of mobiles currently available from MMX, XOLO, Karbonn, etc.

but display size, battery are definitely not going go well with many. maybe a smaller, less powerful (Snapdragon 410) and cheaper will arrive early next year to take on Redmi 1S.

Re: Xiaomi Killer -- Micromax Yu discussion thread !!

Whatever it is ,MMX is going for a leap.
At least skeptical persons are wondering and thinking without dismissing the whole of MMX as a crap in one go.
MMX is maturing and evolving on its own way.......................:doublethumb:
