Owned both models of the yotaphone
I have yotaphone 2 y201 & y206 (my first & second smartphones)

The yotaphone 2 was a amazing when I first bought it many years ago

My very long team review

Performance was good and am a gamer so I played many games on the yotaphone a though the yotaphone performance was good

the yotaphone can get hot when playing heavy games this was a problem as the e-ink screen is sensitive too burn is possible heat is responsible for this problem with yotaphone

So you gaming better in winter than summer
Light games run fine

Age has not been kind too the yotaphone 2 the Snapdragon 800/801 good however is 32bit as not all apps are 32bit compatible

Ram & storage didn't age well either 2gb ram & 32gb storage is just small by todays standards and some apps need at least 3gb of ram

The yotaphone 2 did very well with updates 2 Android version is very good from Android 4 to Android 6 is stock Android too

Sadly custom ROM don't exist :(

Oled screen is really nice and the pictures quality is impressive the screen pictures quality still holds up to today's standards & the handly e-ink screen is just a bonus

Battery life for me was good when I needed it too be using the e-ink screen and yota energy the yotaphone battery can last very long

When using oled screen battery life is average
The yotaphone changes fine but be careful wireless charging I tryed but had problems with I don't trust wireless charging

I did have a battery change on one of my yotaphones the yotaphone is easier than most smartphone to change the battery in for a none removable battery phone

Camera is good having 2 screens also is handly you can even use main camera as selfie camera

The yotaphone definitely was one the best smartphones of it's year when it come out was a very good choose of flagship smartphone to buy a good all rounder still holds up rather now even today

By today standards the old flagship yotaphone is a good budget smartphone with decent performance

Though for me i 32bit the main problem I have and need of more ram for emulators even performance is starting to show its age
It's still a good smartphone it can still run most the games play however it can't do everything I want to do
Anymore :(

yotaphone will still be useful to me for few more years it's has better performance than my new budget smartphone kinda using both my old smartphone and new smartphone (Nokia 3.1)

JoshuaReen, 24 Nov 2020Wow. This phone is a beast by 2014 standardsSure in this case, but the battery has more than the iPhone 12 Pro Max

Wow. This phone is a beast by 2014 standards

  • RIP Yota

I bought it for 189aud back when it was still owned by its original creator. I have 201 model and had it for 3 years. Super happy with it. Outstanding display for watching and pleasant sound. However camera is not good. Every single photo need editing, although photo editing tools are outstanding. Even better that any samsung devices have. Back screen rarely used back super handy when I actually needed it. Back cracked first haha. I thought I ll never fall in love in anything else after this phone because of the in race and convenience of settings. I am even more impressed with xiaomi mi a3 now. So no more Yota grieving for me.

This phone is spectacular. High chipset at the time of release. Cool layout. Sad that YotaPhone stopped releasing phones.
