  • Good
  • Both displays are of good quality
  • Decent performance
  • A good e-book reader
  • Bad
  • Odd placement of primary camera
  • Not enough apps use e-ink display

While smartphones these days are stuffed to gills with powerful technology, design-wise, it would not be far-fetched to state that companies are unwilling to push the boundaries and actually take a risk, though recent launches like Blackberry Passport (Review | Pictures) and Lenovo Vibe X2 (Review | Pictures) have managed to buck that trend. Another exception that particularly caught our fancy is the YotaPhone made by a Russian broadband service provider Yota Devices.

Yota Devices YotaPhone Summary

The Yota Devices Yotaphone has a unique dual-screen with an e-ink display on the rear. In concept it sounds great but the execution is flawed. Despite the innovation, the first generation YotaPhone feels more like an experiment, an experiment we cannot recommend as a purchase unless you are in an absolute urgency to buy a phone with an e-ink display and cannot wait for the YotaPhone 2 to hit Indian markets.
