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
binay, 01 Aug 2015Realy the device is awsome But it's was very expensive 500 euro ummaaaaaaI paied 720 euro for it ;)
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
