YotaPhone 2 review: Choose a side

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 5" AMOLED is another great asset, with excellent pixel density, great contrast, solid color reproduction and good sunlight legibility. read more →

  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on both screens
  • Android OS v4.4.3 KitKat with Yota Apps
  • 32GB of built-in storage (25GB user-accessible)
  • 2,500mAh battery
  • Active noise cancellation with a dedicated mic
  • No high-end video recording (either 4K @ 30fps or FullHD @ 60fps)
  • No microSD card slot or higher storage capacity option available
  • Always resting on a screen regardless how you put it down and double the chance of breaking a screen if you drop it

engadget review: Nice and expensive, but seriously cool

The YotaPhone 2 is a stark upgrade over its predecessor, with bigger, better displays wrapped in a much sleeker package. Most importantly, the secondary E Ink screen is actually useful this time around. It has its flaws, of course, is very expensive and won't be everyone's cup of tea. Regardless, though, it's quite simply as cool as they come. read more →

Yotaphone 2 review:

It's not often you come across a truly unique device in the smartphone market, but the Yotaphone 2 is exactly that. Unique.

From the front it looks like any other Android smartphone, but flip it over and you're greeted with a second, all-touch display - only it's an E-Ink screen similar to those found on ereaders.

The Yotaphone 2 is the Russian brand's second entry into the market following on from the original, proof of concept, Yotaphone which launched in 2013 and aimed squarely at early adopters.

This time round Yota Devices means business. read more →

  • Innovative second touchscreen
  • Potential for long battery life
  • Decent colour display
  • Expensive
  • Several software issues
  • Still a work in progress

YotaPhone 2 review

The original YotaPhone was an interesting concept, but it was poorly executed. With this second generation, many of its issues have been addressed. The e-ink display is higher quality, the design has been greatly improved and it has generally better specs all round. It's a considerably more refined product.

The first version did set the bar extremely low, however, and although the YotaPhone 2 has leapt clean over it, it's still a niche product and you can get much more phone for the money elsewhere. read more →

  • The YotaPhone 2's rear e-ink display lets you read e-books for long periods without draining much battery.
  • A feature no other phone has.
  • It has decent all-round specs and a good front screen too.
  • Its high price puts it among the top-end phones, which it fails to justify.
  • The e-ink screen suffers from ghosting issues, the software for customising it isn't particularly easy to use.
  • The camera doesn't impress.
  • There's no expandable storage.

YotaPhone 2 review: Dual-screen phone will split the crowd

Despite warming to the YotaPhone 2 over our four days of use, we're still on the fence about it. Yes, it's a jump forward compared to the original and we can see genuine use from that second screen and we're not going to cry "gimmick" like we thought we might.But with current smartphones already providing a full day's battery anyway, irrelevant of whether you use them to read eBooks on or not, many just won't need to pay a premium for a dual-screen device. read more →

  • Much better design than original YotaPhone,
  • Smooth Android operation,
  • Interesting use of E Ink to mirror Android for access to all apps,
  • E Ink good for reading and at-a-glance notifications
  • Software bugs can cause ghosting issues with E Ink screen,
  • Hardware chipset not latest
  • No microSD slot
