I'm surprised how many people just don't get the purpose of the e-ink screen :) I agree that it is overpriced though, it would be worth to buy with better CPU and GPU, or with the leaked prices ($350-$400 for 64GB model) but I don't think it will do well with this prices.
Overpriced outdated Soc, and did we really need second screen. ..?
Or this phone is for colour blinds ------×

Ideas are worth trying..!
I have and love my Yotaphone 2. But it was way overpriced for a phone with previous years specs (the Snapdragon 810 had been out for a while... I think the 815 was coming out or had just come out - but the Y2 was released with the 801). The price back then was competing with Galaxy series with anything but flagship specs.
This time we have an upper mid range 18 month old processor. This places it firmly among the aging mid range devices like the Lenovo P2. So, we should see a price point that is similar or close... but we don't. The Lenovo P2 is about $200. This is about $550.
I have an idea: buy to Lenovo P2's, stick them back to back ($1 glue) and save yourself $49 for a dual screen phone!
What the heck are they doing, still not releasing the phone. I am overwhelmed waiting for it.
any updates about the sd card slot? most sites say that the second sim slot can be used as an sd slot, but here it is still listed as having none.
Super pleased with the Yotaphone 2.
As with every other phone and screen the e-paper screen should be protected too (yes mine cracked as well after falling to the floor.
Will definitely buy version 3 when it is released.

Its a very good mobile.I had yota 2.But i will not buy again because of the e-ink screen.One day it feld down and the screen broked in hundreds of pieces.With stronger back screen i can buy it again...
is it possible get in india?if yes then by which source ? and will it work with indian networks?
Surficial, 20 Jun 2017Always liked this secondary e-ink display idea.
I wonder how efficiently a gba emulator or so... moreHope this time the screen is strong enough. My Yotaphone 2 front screen is very fragile, while the back is tough although without screen protector. E ink should support more apps to make use of it.
What's the dimensions? 5.5in sometimes a bit too big for my palm

I bet you're a Yota rep
Please, don't get cheap on people just to make a point. It's not necessary to do searches to understand the concept behind the second display. We're in 21st century, B/W is now archaic. But if they still chose an e-Ink display, they indeed have their reasons. My previous comment does not necessarily show my "ignorance", it rather shows a "wish".
You made a great point, but trying to make people look foolish is hardly a way to make such point.
Nonta72, 23 Aug 2017Come on guys!
It's time to upgrade this "grayscale" thing on the second screen.
Why can't we... moreThe idea of Yota phone is to save battery. Please learn more about it then comment. The rear display is from e-ink, which stays the same unless it is refreshed - so doesn't draw any charge, best for reading books and all. e-inks cannot be made in colors, and thus, the secondary display is not color. And if you want another OLED display in the back, the whole idea of Yota phone will be at stake.
Please try to learn about it before commenting on it. Don't look like a fool in front of others. Ciao...
