In Italy there is NO 5.0 update ! Why ? The phone is beautifull but without software support is just another FAIL !
Finally got my hands on the Yotaphone 2. It might not spot the latest 16-core processor but nevertheless, the built quality of the phone is solid considering both sides of the phone are made of glass. I wish there were smartphones out there that would use e-inks and last longer without needing to charge everyday. You get the best of both worlds as well as having to be extra careful too (see previous reviews). Great phone, simple design, and have a bit of 'Edge' on the e-ink display too.

I am a Canadian author and working on my next project in Russia. I bought this phone when it was first released in Moscow about a year ago. The rear screen got broken during my trip to Asia so I waited to get back to Moscow to fix it. So the final word from YotaPhone is buy a new phone. Replacing the two screens will take three weeks and save me 100 euros over buying a new one. So it seems my Russian family and friends were correct. I should have bought an Iphone. The dual screens that make the Yotaphone unique and more functional are its Achilles heel. The large glass surfaces provide structural integrity to each other so when I broke the rear display it allowed the front display to twist and break easily. Yotaphone seems to want to profit twice off their customer base. Or they expect us to believe they went to market with a product they are getting less than 100 euros per unit sold. The later doesn't seem likely, but then again neither is treating their customer base this way seem a good idea. So since I have received no answer past send it in and wait or buy a new one I am left to come to my own conclusions. The North American launch of the product is soon so I wanted this to be searchable in English so that consumers have an idea what they are getting into. No doubt a budding market of fixers will spring up to handle this flaw and profit from it here in Russia as this is how things work over here. Sad really that Yotaphone missed the shot, they won at CES and then failed in Customer Service. I really wanted this Russian company to do well and prove they could compete in an open market. It was in truth a source of pride for me. Why else would I have put my money where my mouth was and buy this phone the day it was released in Moscow? I was leaving the country and could have bought a six without the sanctions tariffs? The market penetration is poor in Russia even Anapa, a rich seaside resort doesn't have a distributor. Heads up North America GREAT PHONE VERY VERY BAD SERVICE!
This Phone is currently available for purchase globally on Indiegogo.com. looks like they are GSM only though. Still global though

Nice Phone - Excellent idea.

Maybe you should create a phone with only a grey display.

While the design of the phone is definitely new but still not productive enough. Everything that is different from others doesn't means is more useful. Still at the back of my head i feel the dual screen might be brandished as cheap.
I personally think this phone is good, but not slim enough for me. I like the inovation about dual display, in front and back, but the design of this smartphone is bad.
BK, 12 May 2015good innovation and great looking phone... Looks like a premium build... Only SoC is a disappo... morenow that the phone got a price cut..... It does look good for what its worth... The white varient looks absolutely amazing... Very premium... I believe it is going to get another price cut before reaching India

Such phone must be thinner and screen must be bigger for reading, otherwise good alternative phone choise.
Price is high comparing specifications match cost to other mobiles ,add from my humple expert , ips better than amoled screen , 5 inch ? 6 or 5.5 better make that money deserve it , 2nd screen ,good but if it would be bigger size it could replace , ebook
