The video recording can be done at 720p HD@30fps with LED flash.
YU Yunique’s Battery
Unlike previous YU phones, YU Yunique does not have the option for a removable battery. The battery is a 2000 mAh Li-po battery which can be charged via Micro USB 5 pin charger.

Yunique’s Price is one of the most unique feature. It is priced at Rs 4999 in India which will definitely interest many low end app users who want to use basic features and simple games.

It is one of the cheapest phones to support LTE technology which a plus point. The battery however may not last a day on 3G or 4G network and the non-removable battery may concern some users.
How to buy YU Yunique?
Yunique can be purchased exclusively on Snapdeal,but you will have to hurry as the registration will close on September 14.
We still need to see how it performs on the heat scale as the previous YU models have had heating problems for quite a while and even the software updates couldn’t fix that.
The price tag which YU televentures puts on their phones is always tempting and the features are always the best(atleast on paper). If they just start opening offline stores, that would definitely encourage people in buying the phones without any hesitation.
