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.

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

If you use the front screen, does it mean the back screen will be on sleep mode? or both are on? If 2 screens are on, how long would the battery last?
I am using Yotaphone 2 for last 8 months. Few months back I updated y phone. Since then I m facing problems in the rear display.... they call it "Ghosting effect". When I use the rear display for reading something...after use of few minutes the display gets faded..and the screens gets overlapped. I sent the phonelong way from Bangladesh to Hong Kong as I bought it from there..but no luck yet. They suggest me to send the phone again which is not possible for me. And now I m in deep trouble. A phone costing almost 850 USD can give such service... difficult to believe....

All of those are wrong. I have owned the 3g, the 4, the 5s, the 6 and the 6s Plus. The 3g still works, and my brothers are using my other phones. iPhones are among the most well built unique devices out there. I dropped my 6s+ off my balcony onto my wooden deck below. The phone was unscratched. And it preforms better in any benchmark than a phone like the Galaxy S6, or Xperia Z5 and even the Htc one m9 plus
Where I will get the software for synchronisation and upgrading? Please is anybody can help me?

There are much better phones out there, iphones barely make a top 5 in any tech magazine's top smartphones....mainly because they are boring, featureless, break easily, udnerperform and look cheap...
But good insight on the Yotaphone, i was actually considering this, but i will probably stick to LG or even Samsung, they haven't disappointed so far...
The phone is amazing no lags with lollipop. Back screen works like a charm. For those who say that camera is not good they are wrong. Camera is amazing even its 8mp . Stop hatin this phone just because it's a Russian brand. If this was American people would kill themselves
