Microsoft Surface Duo Specifications and information

Microsoft Surface Duo alternatives

Information from 07 Oct 2020.

A very significant departure for Microsoft - This is an Android-based smartphone. Two screens brought together through software, rather than it using a flexible display. In our opinion the Surface Duo targets productivity just like ultra-mobile PCs of 10-years ago. However, expectations are high and there are existing folding UMPCs to compete with.

Also available with 256GB storage. Availability in Europe lags the availability in the USA (First available to reviewers in Sept 2020.)

Samsung Galaxy Fold, 7.3 inch, 263 grams (0.58 lbs)
The Galaxy Fold is available, and has been reviewed. Most reviews talk about the future and rate the Galaxy Fold highly, but rarely is there a recommendation to buy this first edition. With news of a version 2 now coming out, it's probably a good bet to skip this version.
