Engineering marvel with dual screens
Display and Design
The YotaPhone 2 flaunts an amazing 5-inch AMOLED curved display with full HD (1,080 x 1,920 pixels) resolution and a pixel density of 441ppi. But what turns heads is the rear multi touch E-ink display offering qHD resolution (540 x 960 pixels) and a pixel density of 235ppi. Both the screens are covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.0 to offer high resilience.
While the intriguing front display can be used for having fun with games and movies, the rear one is more suitable for static functions like reading. You can thus save battery's fuel from getting drained when not required. However, one unacceptable flaw of the rear display is that the imprints of the previous image still linger when you have changed to a new one. You can easily operate one screen at a time by locking the other one.
The glass fiber outfit is solid enough and deserves applause due to its thickness of 8.9mm and a weight of just 140g. Moreover, with soft curvy edges, you can easily flaunt it.
Processor and OS
The smartphone is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm MSM8974AA Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM and Adreno 330 GPU so that you can experience blazing fast and butter smooth performance at everything. It runs on Android v4.4.3 KitKat OS which is bit disappointing as it is not the latest one.
Camera and Storage
The YotaPhone 2 carries an 8MP rear camera supporting autofocus and LED flash and fluent in recording 1,080p videos. It is accompanied by a 2.1MP front snapper. It has a memory of 32GB which cannot be expanded.
Battery and Connectivity
The YotaPhone 2 is fuelled by a 2,500mAh Li-ion battery and can be connected via 4G LTE Cat4 (selected markets), 3G, NFC, Mobile hotspot, USB port, Tethering, GLONASS, OTA Sync, GPS/A-GPS, Computer Sync, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.0 and USB 3.0 slot.
