Looking to buy a phone on a low budget? Deals emerge often in the tech world, but this one is different for multiple reasons. The YotaPhone 2 was announced back in late 2014, so it definitely doesn’t compete with today’s favorites, but it is still a very special handset. And at only $119.99 it is quite a steal.
So what is it that makes the YotaPhone 2 a one-of-a-kind? Those of you who have been keeping track of the smartphone universe for long will remember the device’s quirky (yet helpful) dual-screen capabilities. One of them is a regular LCD panel, while the back of the phone touts an E-ink screen you can use for pretty much anything. The benefit of going black & white and sacrificing performance? Battery life!
You may notice the screen is usually what eats up most of your smartphone juice. E-ink needs very little energy, so using the secondary display should elongate battery life for days (literally). But you do need to get used to the black & white, as well as the slight delay.
In terms of specs, you are looking at a 5-inch 720p main display, a 4.7-inch 960×540 electronic paper display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, an 8 MP main camera, a 2.1 MP front shooter and a 2,500 mAh battery.
Nothing to write home about as we approach the end of 2016, but it is still a pretty good phone… especially at only $119.99. Not to mention it is still one of the most interesting Android handsets the industry has seen. It will be fun playing around with and will guarantee great conversations, as well as looks.
