Yu Yureka Plus houses the same 2500 mAh battery which we have seen on Yureka, on paper battery seems good but final things can be said only when we review it. Considering higher resolution screen, it will be tough for Yu to keep same battery performance on Yureka Plus as well, in terms of software, it runs on CyanogenMod 12.1.

Yu devices has created a lot of buzz for all geeks out there as it comes with Cyanogen OS which is one of the best custom ROM which you can get for Android devices and as they offer a lot out of the box in terms of customization and provides other options as well, and at this time you will not be able to buy a CM based device in India, apart from OnePlus One.
