I wish other phone makers would incorporate an e-ink screen on the rear, seems a real waste of space to have nothing there.
Been looking at these for a long time now, I'm so tempted but just the terrible operating system holds me back.

Not a fan of Android? Would you prefer if it had been windows mobile! oO

I think he might mean how the e-ink display works in practice. You cannot iirc just mirror the LCD's content to the e-ink. You must use some specially written apps that can use the second screen and there aren't many of those.

Shame really, if you could have mirrored the content it would have been amazing, an android phone with battery life out the wazoo depending on your usage.

Android 4.4... Wasn't expecting that.

Excellent price for an unusual phone.
Shame about Android 4.4, but it's still a good phone.

Amazon should take note. This is what an Amazon phone should be

2 ½ years behind on hardware and software..... They already are! X)

Yeah, i agree. If Amazon had a kindle phone thing like this, it would probably benefit them

This looks amazing!

Still think it's a better idea for tablets with full size ereader on the back than for phones with tiny one.

review i think for the … review i think for the product;http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-phones/yotaphone-2-1228308/review



Though it does harp on about the phone only having a snapdragon 800 and the specs above say it has the 801 that they say would've been an improvement. That the review states then that it's dated and review is from 2014 says a lot, though that was at £555!

Owned one of these (for about four days before it went to my local CeX store (it's still there a year later!). As far as I recall you can mirror all apps to the E-ink rear display, the mentioned restriction was in the very first Yotaphone.

The reason I sold it was because e-ink isn't as glorious as it sounds once you realise how terrible the refresh rate is, and how clunky it is to switch between screens. You also have twice as many screens to break as normal, and obviously you have to buy cases with a big hole cut in the back. The hardware itself was nicely made - it felt like a much nicer Moto G - and it was stock Android in looks. Unfortunately there looks to be no chance this will ever get anything beyond Lollipop 5.1 as Yota seem to have given up on it now. This is the problem with getting niche devices like this - they cost a bomb at launch but get next to no support after a few months. You only have to look at the Marshall London for a similar issue.

If anyone orders this I think I still have a couple of cases if they want them for the cost of postage.

Upgradable to v5.0 gsmarena.com/yot…php

This is one of those phones where it looks alright on paper but when you actually get it and use it you wish you'd just bought a Moto instead.

Will I have to pay import duty if I order this phone, it only seems to be available from the Chinese warehouse?

wow! I want this one! second screen idea is amazing!!

Why on earth does it have 32GB of Read Only Memory?

Good question - how would you prefer it be described?

I'd call it storage. Because it's storage. Its the space available for you to store things in. Where you store photos you take and music and what have you.

It's not memory. RAM is memory.

I don't know here this idiotic misuse of the term ROM originated but it seems to be spreading.

You can mirror

nice spec but avoid. That OS will leave your phone vulnerable for many threats and no
chance for update.

But 'flash memory' is a type of storage, and technically a form of EEPROM.

How can I get spares for the above named yota phone..I have a similar phone ..but the touch screen is broken

Ordered this (thanks OP) but just had an email saying it's out of stock and the order's been cancelled... bit of a shame

Hi,
Just spotted your post about having some Yotaphone cases available, but it was a few months back. Do you still have them by any chance?
I've just bought a Yotaphone 2 from Gearbest so figured with 2 screens a case would definitely be worthwhile

Hopefully I enjoy mine more than you did

I might have purchased your old phone (?) :). I got a yd201 grade A one from CEX and it arrived today (bought online but it's from store stock, one of only two they had in the country, for £150).
Been really enjoying playing with it, though I see it would not be ideal as a primary phone, if that e ink screen had a light it really would be fantastic, but I can see a great deal of use for it, I think it's an absolute bargain, cheers
