I have had this phone for 6 months+. Still love it. I basically live off the back screen and the battery consistently lasts for 2 days. Yota has definitely made a good product.

Never trust a Chinese phone, or anything running on Android to bring you security, in fact, the GSM/mobile network is, and always been by essence the enemy of your privacy. either you only turn the network on when you need it, or you leave your phone at home, when dealing secret documents that might reveal an international conspiracy.
anyways, i still trust BlackberryOS more. that's the last company that had everything under their control.
Hi bought my Yota Phone two months ago at low price 200 GBP, it had Android 5.0.0 out of the box and many updates have arrived and latest one has Android Security Patch for 1-6-2016, better than my other Android Phone which is way behind, every update brings improvements to the phone, and now a Yota store, build quality and battery life is very good and I use the rear screen more than I thought I would a Brilliant feature, and it is a talking point when I use the Yota in company because of the E ink screen, yes glad I picked one up to add to my phone collection of unusual phones, will there be a Yota Phone 3 hope so and might be using Sailfish O.S. ? as I have Jolla Phone.

These are now readily available for £220 new on the internet and at that price they are a fantastic bargain. Beautifully made they feel a million dollars even not being metal. The second screen really does extend your battery life, and I can use to and take no screen power to read my kindle books no other phone can do this. They also come in Beautiful presented box and if you can get it, get the pebble wireless charger which is very cook kit. Recently firmware to Lollypop and the processor really flies, side by side with my wifes S7 Edge there is barely a difference and on a pub table, my Yotaphone gets as much attention if not more than hers. certainly rarer! I have several phones being somewhat of a collector of phone tech and I can promise you these are a great buy right now, just make sure you get a bumper case.
The Yota Phone 2 has a built in FSB spy software which you can't uninstall, this gives FSB full access to your phone when it's connected to a network.
If you can, you should flash the phone with a none official OS, so that you get rid of the spyware.
The phone is good and has been a very good source of communication. But the screen cannot be protected .
Both the screens of my mobile have been damaged due to a fall. Can anyone help me to find an official service centre in INDIA , MUMBAI city, where I can get the screens changed. I purchased the mobile from DUBAI.
Askbess, 29 Sep 2015The phone is amazing no lags with lollipop. Back screen works like a charm. For those who say ... moreAgree the company is Russian that doesn't mean its bad. I'm using this phone from 7 months,touch wood I haven't faced any problems.
iqadi, 13 Dec 2015Hi. I just wanna ask, coz I still dont understand how it works... If you use the front screen... moreE ink only uses energy to write and then its remains without using any power which is why its used by E readers. So the back screen will only use energy if its updated
iqadi, 13 Dec 2015Hi. I just wanna ask, coz I still dont understand how it works... If you use the front screen... moreHello,
The back screen takes no power at all (It only take power when it updates which isnt very often in normal use)
When you use one screen the other locks, so your using the normal screen the back locks so you cant touch it (it still shows info) if your using the back screen the front locks (and turns off)
Hope that helps
