Yota Devices



SIX Studios collaborated with Yota Devices, a Russian mobile making startup on their next generation dual-screen Android-Powered smartphone; a full color touchscreen LCD display on the front and a gesture based Electronic paper display on the back.

With a new product into an already-crowded smartphone market, Yota approached SIX Studios to review the overall design and usability of the device. We therefore conducted a heuristic evaluation of the Yota device, its custom applications and overall interactions by reviewing documentation and new builds that were released weekly.

Having a complete assessment of the devices’ design and features, we worked directly with Yota’s UI/UX team and provided annotated deliverables and guidelines to existing designs and suggested improvements with key use cases.

UX

When a user Puts to Back (Action taken to place app on the Backscreen) the Front screen becomes inactive and the Back screen is activated. Upon rotation from the Back screen to the Front screen, it auto unlocks the front screen and the user is taken to the last point of interaction.
