YotaPhone 2

 

More screens than you'll know what to do with

Great AMOLED front screen ; Ergonomic design ; Clever battery-saving features

Rear screen not backlit ; Slow camera ; Pricey

Two small speaker grilles flank the micro-USB port at the bottom of the YotaPhone 2. The speakers are both loud and clear enough to make them useful for watching the odd movie without the need of using the 3.5mm headphone jack at the top of the phone....

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

 

The idea of a dual-screen smartphone might sound as useful as a sixth toe, and when Russian company YotaPhone launched its device of the same name it didn't make us realise what we were missing. Design quirks, usage irks - it just didn't formulate into...

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 which is at odds with the price (costs more than a Moto X plus separate eBook reader), no microSD slot

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...

‏YotaPhone 2 review

 

‏A great phone for reading obsessives with awful commutes, but it's not for everyone

‏E Ink screen great for reading ; ‏Super smooth glassy back ; ‏Good performance from front display

‏Expensive ; ‏E Ink screen feels awkward to use ; ‏Poor camera at the price

One of this year’s most interesting phones, but a high price and awkward style limit its mainstream appeal

Yotaphone 2 review

 

A phone of two halves, but one is better than the other

Innovative second touchscreen ; Potential for long battery life ; Decent colour display

Expensive ; Still a work in progress ; Average camera

The Yotaphone 2 is a huge leap forward from the original and it's certainly a product which can appeal to a wider consumer base, but ultimately it still feels like a work in progress.

YotaPhone 2 review

 

If you've seen the original YotaPhone, you'll probably agree that it doesn't look like a finished product. However, the YotaPhone 2 looks and feels great. From the front, it could be one of many black smartphones but flip it over and there's no...

There are a lot of things to like about the YotaPhone 2 and we applaud the company for doing something different. The design is excellent and if you want a dual-screen smartphone this is the one for you (ie. don't buy the original). Although the...

YotaPhone 2 review UK

 

The YotaPhone 2 is on sale now and will fetch a high-end £555 – the original is still available at £319. That's quite a lot to pay but this phone does have two screens. It does mean that is puts it in direct competition with the big boys including the...

The Yotaphone 2 has lots of great features and its rear E-ink display gives it a huge battery life, but it won't replace your eReader
