It's like a planner device or just the sort to keep your life together (like how he used it the first time: email, schedule) but not the sort to be used as tools for creators (coz camera, audio, and how smoothly it can handle activity). Like... A digital notebook hehe

I get the camera may not be the best especially when compared to other flagships but DAMN he makes it sound so much more worse than it actually seems like. Looks decent enough to me.

Imagine, a software company that presents a phone without the own firmware... Oh boy, that’s the poorest thing I heard in years... And it seem even more worse then the Microsoft smartphones with windows... Don’t understand this company anymore, in no way, there are so many questions and nobody there to answer anyone of it... It seems that they just give up and want to show this to the world with the duo...

For decades, Apple created products that told the consumer what they wanted. Steve Jobs literally said it. They got everyone wanting to take pictures with their phones and whatnot. This is exactly what Microsoft is doing with the Duo. It's for the multitasker and like you said: The people buying this phone aren't looking to take a ton of pics with it. This phone is perfect for me and what I'd do.

This would be the perfect device for me for work and phone but there is one things that stops me from buying it. There is no expandable storage. A headphone jack and more ram would make this a perfect device but it really the lack of storage.

This product is straight trash. Poor reception, poor connectivity, software bugs, charging port will crack, if you buy to test it out do not do so through AT&T. After the 14 days, you will be stuck in purgatory with a poorly designed piece of beautiful crap because Microsoft will only give you the same piece of crap over and over again while under warranty. Meanwhile, you have to deal with wasted money on skins and screen protectors and time of switching phones (7-10 business days without a phone if you don't have another one laying around) time of dealing with pitiful customer service and time of redownloading apps and contacts... Trust me folks, I thought this product was the bees knees after I figured out the functionality of it. But you can only drop so many calls, deal with not being able to make calls in normal places you should because of the poor antenna, or deal with the frustration of the poor Bluetooth and wifi connectivity before you want to pull your hair out. Stay away from the device. Wait for the next one maybe...this product shouldn't be anyone's daily driver especially for $1500! It is a ball of sh!t. And this is coming from a Microsoft Surface fan boy who has pretty much bought every Surface device in the past 5 years. That ended with this phone and the poor customer service in dealing with it. Oh and the camera will drive you absolutely INSANE!!!

I think this duo will be used by a small minority of people and I don't see it ever going mainstream. On the other hand I do see the galaxy fold 2 going mainstream, its just a nicer form factor which mimics a real tablet!

So now we got two mobile phones side by side doing multi tasks by one user 🙄, how much we achieve if we were doing that many tasks at the same time? At the end u just have to fold second screen in order to make sure battery isn't being drained. It only works perfect for those who wants to read books in the form of gadgets.

This is a ridiculous device. It pretend to be foldable but is actually an NDS. It is so expensive while doesn't come with the basics for a flagship phone. It created the so called need for multitasking with cell phone out of nowhere. It ruined Windows Phone and then turned to Android. You cannot call this their first attempt at smartphones because it start everything all over again each time. What I see is Microsoft itself doesn't know who this product is designed for. Microsoft fails at its hardware all the time that the limited success in Surface Pro and laptop become all it can boast of. Don't compare Surface Duo with Galaxy Fold because Samsung has all other flagship phones and fold is their concept design while Duo is the only thing Microsoft can offer. I was in favor of Microsoft for very long time but it literally has worn my patience out.

$1399.99 is outrageous price. No sale like new cars only the rich can afford. Bill gates monster wants to chip people for tracking. I will not buy from Microsoft monster. It is an old upgrade flip phone that is way overpriced. It is a mini tablet. People boycott Microsoft monster.

This device is for a business strategist! The productive multi taskers that write emails, during meetings on Teams or Zoom. This device is not for social media multi-tasking though it can be used for that. With all the distractions from the atypical smartphone, this phone is for FOCUSED multitasking. This phone would work well for the business professional. Your millennial view of MEH is NOT TECHNICAL.

Just because it's first generation doesn't give it an excuse to suck ass when such features have already been made flagship and expected. Microsoft should not have attempted to release that piece of shit device. It's literally early 2000's era tech. Honestly after they've abandoned the loyal customers of the Lumia 950 XL, all hope was lost in them, this Surface Duo could have been their redeeming moment had the did it right. Just imagine turning the Lumia 950 XL design into the Surface Duo and just improving upon the hardware specs and software. Would have been the ultimate companion and stand alone for windows users. Ugh

I don’t get why phone makers even release these garbage phones. Turning customers into paying beta testers may seem like good business, but for those of us who see through the gimmick, it just seems scummy. Why not have an amazing gen1 instead of having to wait for gen2? I guess manufacturers are ok with shitty flagship products now.

I always put my phone in my back pocket anyway since I've been using Note phones for years now and they're not very pocketable, esp these last couple years with the + and Ultra lol. I love the Surface line and me and my wife both currently have the Surface 7 Pro(with pen of course it's one of the best thinga about it) and love it's features and portability so we were looking foward to this phone. The reason I didn't get a Fold 2 is I'm stuck on the pen and seeing as how the Surface Duo has one I thought best of both worlds. But after seeing this I may wait another year and see what both Microsoft and Samsung do next year with the Fold 3 and Duo 2 respectively. Hopfully Samsung merges the Note lines into the Fold line, or they offer a premium Fold with a pen at least, and if not hopefully Microsoft can fix everything wrong with the Duo in it's sequel like Samsung did on the Fold. But having to put it in a back pocket is the least of my worries since I do thay anyway(or inside cargo pockets in shorts in the summer and those are huge lol).

let's be honest, we both know that this IS NOT for the average consumers. Those are going for apple who needs a fancy - all the same since 2007 device. This is for do-ers not for the " influencers". i do agree there are seemingly a lot of glitches yet and misses features but hey "Rome wasn't built in day" as well as you know extremely close that nor even tesla is 110% perfect and they are on the market for a while now and still struggles with a lot of issues! so as of a device, in term of a telecommunication product it is pretty sharp already! When the second generation of this duo surface going to come out it will break the market i am pretty sure! Microsoft did produce a pretty cool product and device here! It is a fact. and the lack of 5g honestly, its not that a big deal with all due respect if you do think or approach this "issue" with the average consumers perception and sort of perspective.. :. It's got a strong wi-fi all the remaining business are coming w/ wifi connection, so why to waste money on 5G data plan, when you can get 4G automatically and other times you are on Wifi at cafe's, home, during underground travels or even coach busses. let's face that is not that a big deal, nor the "fast-charging". For all those tasks this phone for is perfect as it is now, there should be a bit of framing and polishing BUT i am 110% sure they are going to do it! and then it is going to blow everyone's mind! even those "influencers".

M.B. not a fan of the chin and forehead. Me: I actually kinda like it. Makes it feel more like a small book while giving a bit of the older phone nostalgia. It also gives a bit more room to hold it without hitting any apps accidentally. Neat device, especially for multitasking. Bit overpriced for a beta test on hardware/software. Also not a fan of the low ram/older cpu. A definite wait till version 2.
