    This expensive phone with SD 625 and 4GB RAM? Xiaomi note 4 comes at half the price. so is the e-ink screen worth twice the price??? It has nice specs, and good innovation, but for me, its too expensive for those specs even with e-ink screen on

        Wonderful and how exactly do you have this knowledge? Xiaomi reviews, user reviews and experience are already available, About this phone. Not even sold yet and you say its much better than Xiaomi? Bravo. Do you work for Yota by any chance? Now, just to give you a hint,. I can buy a new Xiaomi Mi4 (i already use one) and Amazon paperback (for its E-ink) and that would be cheaper than this device. Like Cineagain said that E-ink is a nice novelty, but is it worth twice the price? Though I like this novelty, its not worth twice the price. And by the way SD 625 is an old processor more than a year old, after that came SD 626, SD 650 SD 652 and now SD 653,, So the development of this phone is slow and they are now held up with an old processor which now is much much cheaper. Try to find phones with SD 625 and you will notice that most of them were produced from 2016 onwards. I might say Yota are late, ITs matter of choice, for me, E-ink display is not worth that price, and for people like you who feel its worth it, its good for you mate

      It’s a device to buy 1 year down the road.
      The e-ink is a nice novelty to play with, but agreed, not at that price with those specs.
      In 1 year it goes for less than half price.
