    In this category the YU Yunique is the winner, it comes with a Snapdragon 410 SoC which is far better in comparison to the Snapdragon 210 SoC in the Energy 653 and the MediaTek MT6735M in the A2010. All three devices come with similar 1GB RAM. If you are looking for better power and performance, the Snapdragon 410 Processor in the YU Yunique is the best of the three.


    The Lenovo A2010 looses badly in this segment with a 5MP rear camera and 2MP front camera in comparison to the 8MP rear camera in both YU Yunique and Phicomm energy 653. The front camera in the YU Yunique also comes with 83-degree wide angle lens giving it an edge over the Phicomm energy 653 in terms of Camera features.


    All three devices come with Android Lollipop 5.1.1 as the primary OS but the Cyanogen 12.1 OS in the YU Yunique gives it an edge over the other two as there are many fans of the OS  itself. In terms of updates both the YU and Lenovo are trusted to keep sending regular updates to your devices.


    The Lenovo A2010 and the YU Yunique come with 2000 mAh Li-Po battery in comparison to the 2300 mAh battery in the Phicomm Energy 653. But with the increase in the size of the display the increased battery capacity of Energy 653 will not be of much help and all three devices will be giving similar battery life and talk time.


    The YU Yunique seems to be slightly ahead of the other two devices in terms of specifications, the Cyanogen OS factor plays a major role in competing with the other two devices. In case you are a big phone lover then the Phicomm energy 653 will be your choice and in case you are not that bothered about the display size the YU Yunique is place between the 4.5-inch A2010 and the 5-inch Energy 653.

    The processor in the Yunique is a tried and trusted Snapdragon 410. In case you are deciding between these three devices, the YU Yunique which is the younger sibling to the YU Yureka with the same processor, wins in all segments in comparison to the Phicomm Energy 653 and Lenovo A2010 as the best smartphone among the cheapest 4G enabled devices in the market.
