Engadget Review

The YotaPhone 2 is a stark upgrade over its predecessor, with bigger, better displays wrapped in a much sleeker package. Most importantly, the secondary E Ink screen is actually useful this time around. It has its flaws, of course, is very expensive and won't be everyone's cup of tea. Regardless, though, it's quite simply as cool as they come.
