Design and Display

There is about the conventional budget look on this smartphone with the 18:9 aspect ratio and a plastic body to go with it. In a bid to have a reflective glass kind of back, the smartphone features a glossy back which is maybe a bit over the edge. You can remove the back of the smartphone to access the battery underneath something that is quite rear these days. There is the fingerprint scanner located where you can easily get it at the back with a camera at the top and a flash beside it.

Aiding visuals on the smartphone is an average screen with a diagonal length of 5.45-inch and a resolution that doesn’t quite add many details to what’s being displayed. Furthermore, the screen doesn’t have any notch, just a conventional straight bezels around the screen. The resolution here is 1440 x 720 pixels on an LCD panel of course.

Battery and Camera

There is an adequate amount of juice on this smartphone to cater for the battery draining exercise you might decide to embark on with the smartphone. A 4, 000mAh battery have your back, dishing out power on the smartphone. For an entry-level smartphone, this is definitely a better battery capacity with a MicroUSB port for charging.

You can do some subliminal snapping with this smartphone, although, you’re not expecting anything more than this. The Yu Ace carries a 13MP camera on the rear end of the smartphone and a 5MP front camera on the other side for selfies.

Hardware and Software

In control of the operations on the smartphone is a rather low budget chipset with either 2GB or 3GB RAM each going with 16GB and 32GB internal storage space respectively. The MediaTek MT6739 very much handles the work, although, lags are inevitable. Also, you’ll be getting an Android 8.0 Oreo on the smartphone with light modification.

Yu Ace Pricing and Availability

The smartphone goes for about 30, 000 Naira depending on the deal and your location.
