Microsoft Surface Duo review: An exciting, erratic affair


The Surface Duo is decent as a phone, quite bad as a tablet, and somewhat functional as everything in between. That is, when the software works as promised. But bugs and app incompatibility plague this $1,399 device, which will need monthly updates...

Sleek and sturdy design ; Smooth hinge ; Useful book and tent modes

Very finicky software ; Camera is hard to use ; Few compatible apps at the moment ; Expensive

Microsoft Surface Duo hands-on review: Finally, a Surface phone


Microsoft surprised everyone at its October Surface Event by announcing the Surface Duo, and new Windows smartphone. It doesn't run a Windows Phone operating system but instead runs Android, and it has an impressive dual-screen design.

Great dual-screen design ; Sleek, elegant look ; Fast Qualcomm processor

The Surface Duo is Microsoft's new smartphone, and it looks amazing.

Microsoft Surface Duo review: double troubles


The hardware is amazing, except for the camera. The software is amazing, except for the bugs.

Two apps at once ; Thin, beautiful hardware ; Good battery life

Terrible camera ; Software too buggy ; Price

The Surface Duo is Microsoft’s first Android phone and its first phone hardware in four years. It has two screens and is remarkably thin. But beyond being great with apps like Outlook and Office, there are bugs and camera problems.

Microsoft Surface Duo Review


Gorgeous hardware ; Best dual-window experience on Android ; Speedy 4G performance

Buggy ; Awkward to hold ; Expensive

Microsoft's folding Surface Duo phone tries to redefine windowing for a handheld world, but it stumbles on usability.

Microsoft Surface Duo review


The Microsoft Surface Duo is a foldable firecracker with a buggy UI

Double-app productivity ; Fun drag-and-drop features (e.g. spanning) ; Revolutionary 360-degree hinge ; Portable, thin and light ; Colorful displays

No headset jack ; Middling performance ; Poor UI fluidity ; Pricey

The Microsoft Surface Duo is the world’s thinnest foldable device with incredible app-juggling features, but its UI needs tweaking.

Microsoft Surface Duo review: A beautiful, bewildering $1,400 phone


The Microsoft Surface Duo feels truly innovative in how it's built to help you get things done, but its myriad software inconsistencies, outdated hardware and subpar camera — all for an exorbitant price — betray its inspired design.

Gorgeous, practical dual-screen design ; Intuitive gestures ; Pairing apps unlocks potential

Crippling software glitches ; Poor camera ; Underwhelming performance ; Very expensive ; No 5G

What surprised me most about the Surface Duo during my time with it is that it proves Microsoft right in a sense. I can recognize now that there’s enormous potential in dual-screen devices when done properly, and Microsoft has gotten closer to...

Microsoft's Surface Duo Is a Revolution in the Making


Between its price, specs, and most notably its design, Microsoft's Surface Duo is one of the most divisive phones in recent memory. But after getting the chance to use one, I can't help but find the amount of vitriol, incredulity, and straight-up hate...

Dual 5.6-inch AMOLED displays, strong battery life, beautiful build, innovative design, superior multitasking, the Kindle app, powerful advanced features for Microsoft apps
