Usually too much innovation is a recipe for disaster but YotaPhone 2 puts the innovation thingy just in the right amounts. YotaPhone 2 comes with two screens, one in the front and one in the back and yet the device is no thicker than 9mm. The complexity of the engineering calls for the higher price tag of Rs. 53,500 approximately.
The YotaPhone 2 comes with a full HD AMOLED display of 5 inches on the front side and a 4.7-inch E-Ink display on its back. The device runs on a 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor coupled with a 2 GB RAM. This device has a rear camera of 8 MP and a 2.1 MP front camera. No slot for microSD but the 32 GB internal storage works just fine.
The design is very sleek with side buttons provided in such a way that they can easily be used with only one hand. The curved edges and the rubberized gripping material on it make us hold the phone with ease while using the primary display, however when using the secondary display there’s an entirely different situation which is quite uncomfortable as the sharp edges on the front side go poking into your hands.
The device, as for now, runs on Android KitKat but is promised to get an Android Lollipop update in the coming future. The device is powered by 2500 mAh battery which is of course non-removable.
Unlike its predecessor, its E-ink screen is more useful than just reading books. The E-ink screen goes full touch as giving you a semi android experience. The E-Ink screen uses the battery considerable less than the primary display; now you can read and send messages without draining much battery and many other functions can be accessed from the rear end of the phone.
In a nutshell, the YotaPhone 2 is the best of its kind out there but the high price tag seems to be the only concern right now.
