Top 10 plus Yu Yureka Tips

Yu Yureka is awesome device, greatly priced – best for bucks, comes with Cyanogen. YU’s exclusive partnership with Cyanogen in India made Yureka more interesting as Cyanogen comes with great customization options and the rom is regularly, fastly updated. In this post, we’ll disuss top 10  and counting best tips for Cyanogen based Yureka phone:

  1. Double tap to wake up – This is the most loved feature of mine. I hate pressing power button to turn on the display on any phone. Also, it doesn’t feel ergonomic. But with double tap to wake feature, just take yureka in your hand, double tap on the screen anywhere and the display will turn on. Nice, isn’t it? If your Yureka’s display doesn’t light by double tapping, make sure the required setting is enabled (GO to phone settings > Display & Lights > Double-tap to wakeyureka-double-tap-sleep
  2. All side screen rotation: You can also enable screen rotation on all sides – top, bottom, right, left. By default upright down i.e. bottom side is disabled. To enable rotation on all sides, go to phone setting> display & lights> Rotation > Select all angles.screen-rotation-cyanogen
  3. No Screen lock – Why use lockscreen unless you’re using pattern or password based? I do not use lockscreen as it requires another effort to unlock screen by sliding the lockscreen image. With double tap to wake feature enabled, I just tap on screen twice repeatedly and get to work. No extra hurdle or time wastage on unlocking screen after turning the display on. remove-lockscreen-androidYou can also remove lockscreen by going to phone settings > lockscreen > Screen Security > Screen lock > None. no-lock-screen-android
  4. Double tap on status bar to sleep – Since, we can wake/turn on display by double tapping anywhere on display, what if we want to turn off the display quickly after some work on Yureka? We can press the power button, the traditional way, or we can double tap on status bar, the modern intuitive way. Just double tap on status bar (top position where time, date, network strength, etc display) and the display will turn off.
  5. Make Yureka feel faster, swifterGo to phone settings > about phone, scroll down and tap repeatedly on build number five times to enable developer options. GO back to phone settings > Developer options. You’ll see lots of options there, do not mess with them, scroll down until you find Window animation scale. Change its value to 0.5x. Likewise, change transition animation scale and animator duration scale to 0.5x. This will make your phone feel more snappier and faster.developer-tools-yureka-cm
  6. Long-press back button to kill current app – You can also enable this option in developer tools, scroll to the bottom and tick this option.
  7. Ringtone for 2nd sim card: In setting> sound menu>phone ringtone, you can set the default ringtone for mobile but it doesn’t have particular for which of the two sim cards. You can set different ringtone for each of the two sim cards in Yureka by going to Dialer from homescreen and then enter its setting by tapping on three dots at the bottom or by hitting on menu button. You’ll be able to select ringtone of each of the sim cards from there. You can also adjust other call related settings for 1s and 2nd sim cards, like vibrate on hangup, on answer, on call waiting, etc.yureka-2nd-sim-card-ringtone
  8. Adaptive backlight and Color enhancementUnder phone setting > Display & lights, you’ll find these two options – Adaptive Backlight & Color enhancement – tick these to enable them. Adaptive backlight adjusts led screen backlight optimally to ensure better battery life and balance of display brightness. Color enhancement, like Sony Mobile Bravia Engine for Sony phones,  enriches colors on Yureka so this makes your movies, videos look more color-rich, vivid, magnificent and kind of awesome.
  9. CM themes – You can change to a different look on your Yureka without changing the launcher. The default toggle icons, navigation keys, fonts, wallpapers, styles, padding, color schemes of notification window, app icons, boot animaton, etc – all can be changed and a theme usually contains all these elements. Just tap and hold on homescreen or press menu/option button on homescreen and select Themes option. CM themes app will be launched, you’ll be required to create Yu account and accept T&C. Do that and then it’ll list all the installed themes on Yureka.cyanogen-themes-yureka Tap on Shop Themes button and it’ll list around 12 free themes for you to choose. Download and install any of the themes. Again go to themes menu and select the desired theme and apply it on your phone. Enjoy the new look. You can install as many themes as you want. For more themes, just go to Google Play Store and search for CM themes, you’ll get many free and paid cm themes on play store, including lollipop style themes (I like this one). Install them from play store and enable them from themes menu. You can even customize these Cyanogen themes, in the themes list i.e. installed theme chooser window, beside every theme name at the bottom of the preview, wrench icon is there, tap on it and you can customize certain elements of the theme i.e. you can choose fonts from a different theme, boot animation from a different one, and keep the style from the current one.
  10. CM Launcher Options – When you press menu/option button on homescreen, you get three options – wallpapers, widgets, themes.yu-themes Just above these options, you’ll notice three dots in up-arrow form, press it and a list of homescreen customization options appears. From there, you can turn off Google search bar, Change the homescreen scrolling animation, turn off wallpaper scrolling on homescreen, or change grid size(number of apps shortcut icons in a row/column). Change scroll effect for homescreen and app drawers and see the effect.cyanogen-launcher-setting
  11. Onscreen navigation keys – Yureka has three capacitive physical keys but those users who are accustomed to on-screen keys hate physicals keys and vice versa. Many users prefer physical capacitive keys because it doesn’t eat up any of the screen space. Many users prefer onscreen navigation keys because onscreen keys are customizable in their design, size, and numbers. Whatever side you’re on, Cyanogen will not disappoint you.lollipop-style-navigation-keys-yureka-cyanogen If you prefer onscreen keys, you can enable them by going to phone setting > Buttons > Enable on-screen nav bar. When on-screen nav bar is enabled, physical capacitive keys are automatically disabled and vice versa. Now tap on Buttons and layout to change on-screen nav keys position. cyanogen-on-screen-navigation-buttons Tap on Lock button on the top bar in Buttons and Layout window and then you can drag and reorder buttons at the bottom(Drag back button to the right if you’re habituated to physical keys). Add more buttons by tapping on + button. After making the desired changes, tap on lock button at the top again to save those or reset button beside it to revert to default on-screen nav key. yureka-on-screen-nav-keysThe design of the on-screen keys can be changed by installing different cm themes (for example, you can get lollipop style on-screen nav keys on your kitkat based Cyanogen os).
  12. Physical capacitive keys – If you do multitasking on your smartphone, you often switch to another app by using recent apps menu, you need to hold menu for few seconds to bring up recent apps window, this process is cumbersome. The good news is, you can change this behavior. yureka-capacitive-keysGo to phone settings > Buttons> Under Menu Button subheading, Short press action > select Recent apps switcher, and under long press action, select Open/close menu. This way, you can change reverse default behavior of menu button so now you can easily switch to another app by pressing menu button once and selecting desired app from recent apps switcher window, and I recommend this because most of the apps already have menu button in their interface so you won’t often need long-press physical menu key for options. Under Home Button subheading, you can change double tap action to launch voice search (my recommendation).
  13. Dual sim management – A big demerit of Cyanogen in Yureka is that the default dialer doesn’t have sim1 and sim2 button to dial from the desired connection directly.yureka-dual-sim-4g-management Under phone setting > sim cards > Voice calls, select always ask so that each time you dial any number from dialer, you’ll be prompted to select sim1 or sim2, but if you do not use one of the sim cards for calling, you can set the default sim card for voice call here and then you’ll not be prompted to select sim card during dialing. The same can be done for sms. Here you can also set the default sim card to be used for connecting to internet. dual-sim-setting-yurekaAlways ask option is good to compensate for the lack of sim card buttons in dialer but there should also be toggle button to easily switch the default active sim card for voice calls in notification toggle.
  14. Hidden Performance setting/Performance toggle – Cyanogen in Yureka doesn’t have performance menu in Setting because it is hidden. Performance menu usually consists of performance settings like cpu balanced or performance mode, etc. The default is balanced which is optimal balance of performance and battery life. You can change to performance mode in which cpu tends to hit its full speed frequency quite often, but this may result in slight lower battery life; or you can change to powersave mode, which as the name suggests, is favorable to longer battery life. There are two ways to access performance setting. First Go to setting menu and tap on Search button at the top, write performance, select the same, tap on ok button and then adjust the desired setting as you wish. This is slightly cumbersome process. Well, the second way is very easy, which is via toggles button from status bar. Go to toggles page from notification window and tap on + button and select performance profile from the list of several toggle buttons. It’ll be added and shown in toggle page window. Now whenever you feel like you need to be on adrenaline, switch to performance mode by tapping on performance toggle button. yureka-cpu-performance-modeWe’ll keep updating this page with more Yureka smartphones tips.

Also after that it asks to use “Lollipop OS” or “Launcher 3”.

  53. hey…i m getting problems like call drops frequently ,its now like a cummvbrsome problem for me , whenever i call some1 ,the call diaconnect automatically ,plss help me out

  54. Ever since I updated it to lollipop, each time I delete any picture from my gallery.. The gallery automatically exits. I’ve reported for like 10 time till date. Also the phone stucks in between and turns off in like 5sec..

    1. Hello Archana,
      GO to setting>apps>gallery>clear data.
      If that doesn’t help, factory reset phone, otherwise, use a different gallery app (search for gallery in play store)

      1. Does this clearing data erase all my data i e my pictures.. And I’ve got an other problem.. My inbuilt protected app isn’t working.. I open it I gets crashed all the time? What do I do??.

        1. no, clearing data will not erase your pictures, it will just erase automatically generated thumbnails, and thus thumbnails of all pictures will be regenerated..

        2. Okay thank u so much!. And y protected app isn’t working..! What do i do with this please help!. Thank you :)

  55. Hi saurabh

    Really let me tell u heart full thanks for this wonderful information about yurek. On net this the most useful information i find compere to others too enhance yur use for phone.

    I need ur little assistant which also faced by pranay and harshita about default video player

    Pls reply me asap.
