The potential lack of upgrades is something you should consider if your cursor is hovering over the ‘Buy’ button on YotaPhone’s website: this phone is what it is now, and possibly will be nothing more. It takes huge expense for manufacturers to update phones and create an ecosystem, after all.
Then there’s the price. And this is something you’ll need to think about carefully for a few reasons. First off, at £550, the YotaPhone 2 is an expensive device; you’re paying for the second screen here, not the specs, the looks or the build, and Ap... Full review
Concluding the YotaPhone 2 is very much like concluding a game of cricket with two very different innings. On the one hand, the cost is prohibitively expensive and the handset has a mediocre camera with average battery life and none of the gimmicks features on other flagship devices.
On the other, it’s completely unique, the rear EPD screen can be incredibly useful and the real-world performance is excellent. From the moment I switched the handset on, the single thing going through my mind has been how cool this handset is. Having used most of the smartphones released on th... Full review
We approached the YotaPhone 2 as the niche device we thought it was. By the time we reached the end of this review, we were ready to rethink. It's an odd-ball of a device by all means, but its second screen opens the door to a whole new world of possibilities.
The YotaPhone 2 is closer to the current crop of flagships than to the midrange market segment. The overall performance is Nexus 5/Galaxy S5 grade or similar - fast, fluid and capable of handling pretty much everything.
The 5" AMOLED is another great asset, with excellent pixel density, great contrast, solid colo... Full review
This is a phone with a very decent specification and is built well with a beautiful design. The rear display, to the untrained eye, can look like a logo until you confuse the heck out of interested onlookers by interacting with it, or having it change regularly as you ride the train to work. It is, however, a hard one to sell to the mainstream smartphone audience. We all know that the high-quality screens on which we’re hooked daily are nailing our precious batteries. However, I’d be interested to find out just how many people will really give up the full-colour experience of a... Full review
The YotaPhone 2 is a vastly improved progression from the first proof-of-concept device. The second e-ink screen on the back is infinitely more useful, with full touch controls and a range of applications, widgets and use cases to take advantage of. While the internal components are a little dated, the YotaPhone 2 is about more than the specs race, introducing a new way of thinking about your smartphone and revolutionizing battery life in the process.
Specs hounds and camera fiends will likely look elsewhere and for good reason, but for those with an adventurous slant to your sma... Full review
The YotaPhone 2 is the only smartphone in the market that features a second e-paper display. That largely prevents any usage restrictions even on sunny summer days, and always ensures good legibility. However, the EP display does not make an absolutely sophisticated impression. Although it has been improved considerably compared with the precursor, the displayed content could be sharper. Besides that, we would wish for a backlight that can be enabled optionally.
Otherwise, Yota Devices delivers a good total package with its handheld. The battery life is very good, the build is gr... Full review
