Yotaphone 2 on Sale at GearBest for $140

Yota Devices' second dual-screen smartphone retailed for over 700 euros when it launched in late 2014. That put the phone out of reach for most buyers, but the same is not true for the following sale.

Chinese retailer GearBest is now holding a flash sale on the Yotaphone 2 where you can buy this smartphone for $140 (plus free shipping). Supplies are limited, so you will need to act fast.


The YotaPhone 2 is a unique dual-screen Android smartphone which pairs a 5″ OLED screen with a 4.7″ E-ink screen. It runs Android 4.4 on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU with  2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. It also sports a pair of cameras (8MP w\flash, 2.1MP), a variety of sensors, Wifi, BT, and connectivity for ATT and T-Mobile.

On the front you’ll find a 5″ AMOLED (screen resolution: 1920 x 1080), while on the back there is a 4.7″ E-ink display (screen resolution: 960 x 540). Both screens have capacitive touchscreens, and both are protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.

P.S. If you miss out on this deal, you can pick one up from Amazon for $200 to $300.

It’s a deal at that price. But it’s not a good choice for North American readers of this blog; it doesn’t feature the LTE bands that are used on this side of the pond.

And its not really a good product at all.

I’m curious – in what way isn’t it a good product? I know that the second screen isn’t useful for much because developers haven’t stepped up and created things for it. But aside from that it looks like it has solid midrange specs here and now: Snapdragon 801, 2GB RAM, 32GB flash, 1080p display. $140 looks like a decent price for a phone with those specs even if you ignore the second display, unless they’ve badly messed up the design in some way. The biggest drawback is the old software that it ships with, Android 4.4. There is a Lollipop upgrade available but GearBest claims that the warranty won’t be honored if you upgrade. The battery is also on the small side (2500 mAh), but since the display is also smallish (5.0″) it’s probably big enough.

The phone itself is good, the hardware is balanced and at $140 it’s a steal. (I had one but dropped it and both screens broke; the repair cost would have been $500+ so I went for a Samsung S7 instead.) The e-ink screen is too slow for practical use, but as an always-on info display (clock, notifications) it is unbeatable. There are few 3rd-party apps available but I found that the default ones are OK. Mirroring the Android UI to the back side reduces battery consumption considerably. Set up OruxMaps to use offline maps and to update the screen every 2 seconds, mirror it to the back side and you have an all-day biking/trekking computer (easily 12+ hours)! The Lollipop update is by YotaPhone and as official as it gets, I don’t understand why it would invalidate the warranty any more than the 4.4 firmware.

Five months later, the sale is *still* going on … Incredible.
Mind you, the sale started well before you posted this.

And I am very happy with my unit that I purchased 3 months ago. Thank you Nate.

Yes. Basically this is not a sale so much as the new retail price.

And Thanks!

Official Update to Android 6.0 available for YotaPhone 2 with RU firmware.

Not bad for a fire-sale phone. Being able to update from 4.4 the phone came with, all the way to 6.0.
