imagine trying to justify this overpriced crap, even the regular note 20 would be a better deal than this lol
This thing is outclassed by many devices with a dual screen accessory or literally normal dual screen devices. It's not even one of those flexible displays or so. Is it a problem? No. However: The price is a dealbreaker.
855... well okay. 6GB RAM? Ugh, okay. One mediocre camera? Ouch. Ugly unfolded design? Well... at least it has stereo speakers, as it's so big and shoul have room for that. Wait? No? What about a big battery?
yea. Sorry but 1200 for that is just not too good. If you want to be productive, get a notebook. There are ones with touchscreens as well. If you want to play games, you can get a nice PC at this point. If you want to have a good phone, there's MUUUCH better options (even foldable).
Coming from someone like me who has an LG V50 with DualScreen case, I'll stay with LG. While Microsoft and LG are banking the same idea, LG went further with practicality. You don't even have to use the DualScreen case all the time, and that is a solid big win for me.
Personally, I'll wait for the Surface Neo to come for real.
You can't say it's productive until it has Windows 10. Y microsoft choose android over it?

Also almost a laptop replacement at this size?? Please...LOL.
Hmm, 16 Aug 2020Really...this has been in the works for much longer than LG's offering. look it up.Don't need to... Pointless if other's beat to the market with much earlier with more sensible offering.
DragonNF, 16 Aug 2020but with LG you can have it as both dual screen or just a normal sized phone. And bigger battery...
MS should've done Surface Duo on Windows with bigger battery less gimmick and inc. Pen for productivity, and Surface 'Solo' on Android as a smart phone. For all the years of Windows mobile/Pocket PC and owning Nokia Handheld for 3+ years... This is the poop you've being working on? For whom? What MS need is a seamless sync solution between Android and Windows to increase productivity. Working on a phone, because everyone else has one just ain't going to cut it. Looks like MS still haven't find their piece of pie and are clueless just like MS-Nokia era.

It does not ha e 5G. I received an email from AT&T earlier this month that I had to upgrade my Blackberry Passport because they were no longer going to support 4G in 2021. Ridiculous.

This could have been almost a laptop replacement but the tiny battery and little RAM capacity make it more of a sick joke, especially with that price tag, ouch.
Btw, you would call browsing productivity right? Well, all that leftover 3GB RAM will be barely enough for Chrome. The RAM is being shared with the GPU for example, so there is no dedicated VRAM. The more RAM you have available on Android the better.
Windows 10 full and Android would make those $1400 totally worth it.

Surely there are other reasons to buy the phone than, "it's the powerhouse I've been waiting for." Yet another poorly designed survey.

Look at the stuff I said. And stop judging people by them owning gaming phones. I bought it just to see what xiaomi does with flagships socs on a budget
Not bad until one reads the price tag. Then it's a no-go even for MS fans, myself included.

This is a business user device where the 855 and the 865 work exactly the same for the application.
