As you know, YotaPhone always accompanied by “noise” in the media, there are a lot of observers say, the unit lights up in the hands of the top leaders of the country. In general, ignore this smartphone remains. Was no exception and YotaPhone 2. He waited all, and even the Russian president publicly gave a copy of the device to the Chinese leader. Enduring attention of the public and authorities to the products of the company Yota Devices not surprising, as
The implementation of interesting ideas worthy of respect, gadgets YotaPhone in this regard, several times received significant awards at international exhibitions. The real attitude of the people to the products of the company can be described as a mixture of disbelief and ridicule minimum timid optimism. Like, another domestic hack, but still not in fact the Russian and Chinese (as collected in China). Besides actively raspiarennaya due to administrative resource.
As a result YotaPhone appears in the eyes of users somehow suspicious and unpalatable solution. And in vain, though, if only because the second smartphone for all the information is supposed to be quite worthy. Clearly, it seems that if Russia has participated in the production of the smartphone, it should come out something like curves Lada. But no, you only get to know YotaPhone closer and many misconceptions evaporate …
To speak of what a smartphone is made in China and therefore poor or Russian, at least, strange. Most companies, including Apple produce / buy parts for their devices and collect them in the countries of south-east Asia. Just because it is cheaper, and production line there has long been established. Well, our task in this review, as usual, put aside all the talk and prejudices and see how really good the final product.
So, YotaPhone 2 prepared for us a new design, improved hardware, increased primary and secondary screens. The second screen is now also touch and to use it there are more opportuniti es. All is good, except for one notable and significant disadvantage. Price trends at the start of sales after the launch in December 2014 was slightly more than 30 thousand rubles, and at the beginning of February 2015 has reached 40 thousand rubles. Startling figures, will ascertain whether the cost of innovation that kind of money.
YotaPhone 2 will be available for sale in a single hardware version with 32 GB of internal memory for data storage. Of course, the device was delivered to the Russian market and will be accompanied by appropriate support. Provided black body color, and soon added and white. Recommended cost smartphone at the moment is 39 990 rubles.
A detailed review of the smartphone will begin with a brief description of its parameters. But before that, let us not forget to thank the store STORE77 for the provided YotaPhone 2.

So what’s new? Updated OS displays a higher resolution and have themselves become more and the rear screen is now the same touch as the front. SoC replaced with more current Snapdragon 801, there was a module NFC. Now smartphone “eats» Nano SIM-card instead Micro.
YotaPhone grew in height and width, becoming thinner. Weight of the device is almost unchanged as not added and a slot for memory cards. Battery grown, but not much, probably in proportion to the increased power consumption of the entire hardware. Looks strange is that the manufacturer decided to install a smartphone camera with less megapixels. As you can see, the second YotaPhone significantly updated and received useful functionality. But it is worth the novelty at the moment is almost four times more expensive than its predecessor.
While you contemplate whether such a purchase is justified or not, we will proceed to a visual inspection visitor to the laboratory. Benefit there is to see that, because the machine design has changed significantly.
