The Yota Phone is a dual screen phone being packed with some amazing specs and features such as the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 12 MP camera and many more. The key feature of this device is its 200 dpi E Ink display which is capable of acquiring a good amount of information such as calendar appointments, updates, tweets, e-books and many more without loss of the charge of the battery.
Yota Phone Design and Display
This dual-screen Yota Phone is more like a prototype having rough edges and is average in terms of design. It has double Gorilla Glass screens and a power button which acts as a SIM slot too. This device measures 131x67x9.90 mm in dimensions and weighs 140 g. It is mounted by a superior E Ink panel, something that enhances the contrast by uplifting the resolution to 220 dpi.
This Yota phone is built with a 4.3 inches HD Capacitive Touchscreen display which resembles a display resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and is protected by the Gorilla Glass. By using a third party app or a customized app made by Yota, tap on the symbol situated on the right corner of the display and the contents to the rear display.
The operating system being smooth, you can carry out a V-shaped gesture on the display of the device to get a copy of the current screen and also the home screen. The screen at the back is not completely touch sensitive. Only the segment at the bottom of the rear screen is capacitive to touch and hence all apps are not likely to react to the gestures.
Yota Phone OS and Processor
This Android device runs on the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean platform of Google and is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor.
Yota Phone Camera
The Yota phone is embedded with a 12 Mega pixel rear facing camera which is one of the positive and most advantageous features the phone has. This camera resembles a resolution of 4000 x 3000 Pixels and features digital zoom, video, video recording and Multi Format Video Player.

Yota Phone Battery and Miscellaneous Features
This dual-screen Yota phone is boosted by a Li-ion 2100 mAH battery which ensures a standby up to long hours. Other common features of the phone include SMS, MMS, email, instant messaging, social networking services, multi format music player, 3.5mm audio jack, etc.
The Yota phone is packed with some good stuff, but still, the device does not satisfy from any angle. The only positive side that we found is the 12 megapixel shooter which would enable to take some good pictures. This device comes in a sales pack that contains handset, battery, charger, headset, USB cable and user manual.
