jay, 25 Aug 2020so much space and just a 3500mAh battery???What do you mean much space? Its extremely thin, there is no space to add more battery. 2 screens and 2 backs on 145.2 x 93.3 x 9.9.

microsodt with android OS
Microsoft's focus is functionality, duo doesn't have any unnecessary features, it will most probably create a new trend. And as the benchmarks say, Microsoft has optimized duo very well, even with last years specs and 6gb ram duo outperforms almost all the phones of 2020 with better processors and ram. waiting for this phone eagerly.
Bezels still alive in late 2020 too !!
MS you missed your train again. No 5G. Too bad.
The word is out: CLIPPY (clippit) the annoying assistent will be back and live in the duo!
The Best fold Device on the market
Not ideal for frequent texter, so much hassle opening the device especially in public. Also when you are calling someone without using a wireless headset. This device is optimized for indoor use.
I think the design is brilliant... I believe Microsoft wanted to create a small surface tablet platform that fits in your pocket and also functions as a phone. They wanted to keep it as thin as possible and still allow you to be productive in this online world. It doesn't need to have the best camera or NFC. I have had a couple phones with NFC and barely used it at all. Who really needs more than one camera except those spending the whole day taking selfie's. I have a Surface Duo on preorder and can't wait for it to arrive.
hmm, 20 Aug 2020Unfolded: 186.9 x 145.2 x 4.8 mm
Folded: 145.2 x 93.3 x 9.9 mm
How does this make sense ? ... more145 is the height!
The screen is not that big compared to some modern phones.
It is geared for productivity but I wish the bezels were smaller.
I don't think this works well as a a phone, that you would hold in one hand. Folded, it is a couple mm wider than the Blackberry Passport (2014) -- which had been widely criticised for how wide it is.
Unfolded, it is a 8" tablet.
It should therefore best be viewed as a tablet -- with phone functionality.
You could keep it in your bag or a jacket pocket and use a wireless headset and smartwatch to make calls and check notifications. Then when you really need to use an app on a screen, then you would pull it out.
There are some glaring flaws also. Tablets usually have larger batteries and a headphone jack. It lacks NFC needed for secure pairing of Bluetooth peripherals.
The wide borders is not a flaw: those are necessary for how you hold a tablet.
That usage scenario above is probably too uncommon, and the price is not competitive. I therefore predict that this will (like the Blackberry Passport) be a big flop.
I'm hoping to pick up one for cheap for my collection in five years though.

Folded: 145.2 x 93.3 x 9.9 mm
How does this make sense ? Folded 93.3mm wide and unfolded 145.2 only ? So one side of the phone tablet or what ever this is is 51.9mm wide only ?
Radek, 13 Aug 2020It's not a phone.It doesnt fit anywhere except thn folding phones or maybe im unaware of some category
Mr.JHumble, 20 Aug 2020Do people not realize this has a dual 3577 mAh under each screen? Also, the innovation with t... moreWrong. The two screens have a TOTAL of 3577mah, so its actually worse than you think lol.
