Features, Performance, and Reviews for the YotaPhone 2

YotaPhone 2's size

The YotaPhone 2 is 2.7 inches (69.5 mm) wide, 5.7 inches (144 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (8.9 mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the YotaPhone 2, it weighs about 140 oz (140 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the YotaPhone 2, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

The CPU performance of YotaPhone 2

The processing power of the YotaPhone 2 is, at 2.3GHz×4(Quad core), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The YotaPhone 2 has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the YotaPhone 2 rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

In addition, the front camera of the YotaPhone 2 has an extremely high resolution with 21 MP. You can take top-notch photos and the camera performance leaves no wishes unfilled. You will enjoy using your smartphone as your camera.

The battery performance of YotaPhone 2

The YotaPhone 2's battery capacity is 2550 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the YotaPhone 2 has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.
