So by going through this small story, you will be able to make a correct buying decision.

Design and Display

Being a budget device you won’t be getting a Glass or Metallic design here. The device has a robust Plastic body. The rear panel of the design is shiny and gives a chrome like a look. The design comes to personal preference as Yu has gone with a different approach with this. Fortunately, the device has a Fingerprint Scanner on the rear panel coupled with a Face Unlocking tech which works through front camera.

The device sports a compact 5.45(inch) HD+ IPS LCD Display with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 aspect ratio. The display has a layer of 2.5D glass over it which adds to its looks. For an affordable, the display is great and will get the job done.

Performance and Specifications

Yu Ace comes powered by a MediaTek MT6739WW Octa-Core processor coupled with a PowerVR GE8100 GPU for gaming. The device comes in two variants: 2GB RAM+16GB ROM and 3GB RAM+32GB ROM. Luckily the storage on the device is expandable via a micro-SD card. The device runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Day to day performance of the device is satisfactory but don’t expect smooth gaming from it, you will often face lags while playing titles like Asphalt 9, PUBG, etc.

Camera and Battery

The device also supports fast charging.


The device comes in following color options: Charcoal Grey, Electric Blue, and Rose Gold. The price for the device starts at INR 5,999 and for this price, you are getting a good Display, a massive battery, and a clean user interface to deal with.
