YotaPhone 2 has captured attentions with its quirky dual screen projection. Yes, that means a back-to-back tandem of display. The round-edged model has the capability to adjust brightness under the glaring sun, enabling handlers to check out latest info updates out in the open. Those, plus the ability to budget power despite color display.
Premium feel easily concluded in the 144 x 69.5 x 8.9mm upper mid-streamer. Design is smoothly elegant black and white. The 5-inch AMOLED front display comes with 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution which confirms ultimate graphical performance as it is powered with Snapdragon 800, 2GB RAM and Android 4.4 Kitkat interface. The 4.7 inch “flip-kick,” though has a mere 540 x 960 pixels, with 234ppi density (pixilation is quite apparent). However, don’t be deterred with this minor problem, as E-Ink screen is approved useful. E-book lovers—most likely—will uber-love this feature.
Other specifications include 2MP front snapper and a decent 8-megapixel primary cam. While YotaPhone 2 is not one to promise great picture experience, it is understandable as it is not made to be one! (Back E-Ink display quirk, remember?) Storage capacity indicates an internal 32GB which—unfortunately—is not expandable.
YotaPhone is hefty priced at $860-870. It is available in Europe and Middle East currently but won’t appear to the Asian markets until early next year.
