There was a time when phone screen sizes were small, and you hoped the phone-makers to come up with something big. Your prayers were heard and soon came handsets that featured massive 5-inch displays.
Now that’s not all. A few smartphone manufacturers plan to take it all up to the next level by offering two displays in a single phone. We are talking about the new YotaPhone 2 and the LG V10. Both handsets feature 2 screens. But, how are they different from each other? Let’s find out:
Have a look at the specifications, and the LG V10 seems to be quite ahead in the race. However, in terms of the processor, the YotaPhone 2 makes it to the top.
While the YotaPhone 2 comes preloaded with Android 4.4.3, it is upgradable to Android 5.0 Lollipop. LG V10, on the other hand, comes with Android 5.1 out of the box.
The YotaPhone 2 is the improved version of the original handset launched back in 2012. Unlike its predecessor, the new YotaPhone comes with a cutting edge design. From the front, the device may look just like any other standard smartphone with a 5 inch screen. Simply flip it over, and you are introduced to a brand new world of a 4.7-inch e-ink display shielded by a gorilla glass, giving it a premium look.
If you love reading eBooks, the YotaPhone 2 turns out to be a perfect blessing. Read your favourite eBooks for up to 100 hours on a single charge. Both the screens offer full Android functionality.
Though an 8 MP camera may not be the best you can get, it is good enough to help you click some cool photos. And finally you have a 2500 mAh battery offering a decent talk time of 26 hours for 3G.
Set to launch this month, LG V10 too features 2 displays. But, if you flip it around, you won’t see the second one, as it is located as an inset display right above the primary 5.7-inch screen. The second screen is an ‘always on’ display that offers live notifications on weather, battery life, time, date and so on.
While you are using the main display, the second screen can be used to launch apps.
The device will run on Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. You can most likely expect an upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the near future.
Few additional features include the enhanced audio recording and quick video editor that lets you share your video instantly.
A reinforced frame, synthetic back cover and stainless steel side rails guarantee enhanced durability. As a result, accidental drops won’t cause damage.
Talking about the internal features, the device is all packed with some high-tech goodness, right from a powerful processor to the latest operating system. A powerful 16 MP rear camera is sure to make you happy. And of course, there is a 5 MP front-facing snapper to let you stick to your selfie craze.
Though in terms of specifications, the YotaPhone 2 and the LG V10 might seem a million miles away from each other, they do plan to offer you something no one else does. So, you might probably want to try one of these.
