Lenovo A7000 vs. Micromax Yu Yureka vs. Xiaomi Mi4i

Lenovo has released a new phablet, A7000, into the Indian market so recently. People who were going bananas over Micromax Yu Yureka so far have got a reason to stop their excitements. Just like Micromax, Lenovo has also made it available via flash sales on Flipkart.

Interestingly, Micromax has also decided to stop these flash sales on Amazon and is selling it in an open sale from May 6th, the same date on which the second flash sale of Lenovo A7000 happened. Seems like Micromax Yu Yureka started feeling the heat.

Also, the new Xiaomi’s beauty Mi4i looks fantastic in design and very good in performance. It gives a good competition to the budget range smartphones like Yureka and A7000. If it is taken benchmark wise, Mi4i wins the race followed by Lenovo A7000 and Micromax Yu Yureka.

Both these three phones have pros, cons and issues and it is hard to pick up one among these without a detailed comparison.
