“The proximity sensor’s performance has been optimized by including patches that will auto calibrate it every time the phone reboots. The touch panel has been made more responsive,” says a YU forum update.
This new update also claims to have better thermal management, which will help reduce the overheating issue which had plagued the YU Yuphoria. Another issue we had found with the phone when reviewing it was the typing experience being patchy on the default keyboard. Here is what we had experienced:
“In terms of heating issues, the phone does tend to get warm when running benchmarks or during gaming. I noticed that the display portion and rear side did tend to heat up when I was out in the sun, with the metal frame getting particularly warm. Another issue was the default keyboard app, which even though it supports swype-like functionality tends to miss out of a lot of alphabets, leading to spelling errors.”
