Review of the product design of the YotaPhone 2
Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets
When deciding whether to buy an YotaPhone 2, the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the YotaPhone 2 around and put it away.
Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around
The YotaPhone 2 is a size that can easily be held in one hand. Even when holding it along with other things such as a wallet, its size makes it difficult to drop accidentally.
Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket
It doesn't feel strange even when you put the YotaPhone 2 in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.
Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket
The YotaPhone 2 has a size that makes it relatively easy to keep and take out. While it sometimes get caught when sticking out of the pocket, I think it is just a matter of getting used to it.
Ease of getting it in and out of your bag
The YotaPhone 2 is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.
Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling
It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the YotaPhone 2 by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.
Ease of grasping the phone in one hand
The YotaPhone 2 is a size that allows you to have a firm grip even while using it. Since your hand is kept stable, it is difficult to accidentally drop the phone, and it is very easy to use. Since the original body size is small, the phone is still easy to hold even when using a case.
The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand
The YotaPhone 2 is light, and I think it can be operated with one hand for a long time without feeling tired. However, it may be a bit heavy for those who are not used to using smart phones. Also, as it is not a heavy smart phone, its weight does not really change when a case is added.
Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand
Even when used with one hand, the YotaPhone 2 has a size which allows buttons on the edges of the display to be operated. However, people with small hands may lose their grip if they try to press the buttons at the edges.
The size of the buttons on the App
The buttons displayed on the YotaPhone 2 are large, and therefore it is difficult to press the wrong ones. While some buttons may look small depending on the app, you probably won't feel that stressed when you actually use it.
Ease of typing in letters using the flick function
Keys on the YotaPhone 2 can be pressed even when held with one hand, but your grip may weaken when trying to flick the buttons at the edges. As a result, it may become unstable in the hand when flicking quickly, but it won't be easy to drop as long as you are careful.
Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion
If you aren't being careful it is really easy to mistype when using the YotaPhone 2 with two hands since the buttons are so small. In addition, typing at high speeds is pretty difficult and I can't say its very suited for it.
Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use
Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use
For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the YotaPhone 2 is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.
The size of the letters and the ease of operation
In general, the YotaPhone 2 displays characters and pictures in sizes that are easy to see. While some characters may look small depending on the app, they are not really difficult to see. Therefore, it can be said to be more than adequate for uses such as searching the Internet and messaging.
Ease of reading sentences
Since the YotaPhone 2 displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.
The beauty of the overal screen
The screen of the YotaPhone 2 can display pictures and videos quite vividly. This makes it great for enjoying videos and games dynamically. It has a very beautiful screen.
Ease of writing sentences
For the YotaPhone 2, the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.
Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?
Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the YotaPhone 2 provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.
Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?
It is more than adequate for applications such as using social media—like Facebook and Instagram—and searching the Internet. Sometimes, though, it may feel a bit slow.
Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?
There isn't any sense of inadequate performance even when several apps are used at the same time and there is frequent switching between apps. In rare cases, it may feel slow and the display may lag, but I don't think one will feel stressed during practical use.

While it is perfectly suitable for searching the web and sending messages, people who use their smartphone for more demanding purposes will likely feel that its performance is subpar. It has the memory capacity of a standard smartphone. Having more capacity would make apps less likely to crash and make it easier to use, but the performance is fine for the Internet and emailing. For gaming, you would want the next level up in performance.
The camera of the YotaPhone 2
The YotaPhone 2 has a back camera with 8 MP. The front camera has 21 MP. The rear camera performance is about the same as a typical smartphone. The image quality for longer distance photography is less than satisfactory, but on the whole, there are no issues with short distance photos. In addition, compared to standard smart phones, its rear camera has quite high performance. It is great for scenery photography and such as it is able to take photos of quite high resolutions. While great for taking photos of things far away, I feel it may be lacking when photographing near objects.
