It’s electronic paper display allows it serve as the perfect viewing screen for reading e-books and also help display info like weather updates, meeting schedule times, as well as help as a photo frame for pictures and/or wallpapers.

 

The YotaPhone 2 is hailed for being indeed a marvel due to its brilliant AMOLED display, useful secondary e-ink display, great processing speed and relatively fair price. However, it gets knocks for its not-so-brilliant camera performance, slight difficulty in handling due to its dual screen and poor Yota software overlay on Android.

 

One major problem analysts see facing the Yotaphone 2 is the limited market appeal for it. Especially in this part of the World where we are so concerned about taking care of our phone screens. This would indeed affect sales in the short and long run. Sad though.

 

Like I can’t help but ask, how would a case for this phone look like?
