Did I expect TOO MUCH from the Surface Duo?

Vitenskap og teknologi

It's been a few years since Microsoft made a phone, but it seems like they stop fighting and joined Google's Android OS. Do you think the Surface Duo will be enough to make Microsoft a major player against the likes of Samsung and Apple?

    Windows Phone was great. It's down fall was app support. But Windows mobile was great. I liked it better than Android, but for some reason Android is king and had all the apps. Go figure.

    I wouldn't say that no one wanted a WP, that alone makes the "thumbs down" justifiable, you just sound like a hater. it certainly wasn't a popular device but I knew quite some people who wanted it but the lack of Apps drove them away. I had a few. Started with WP7 all the way to the Nokia lineup...I'd love to have it again but, it is what it is

    This thing is waaayyy too wide in one-screen mode. Needs to be narrower by like half an inch on each side. Also, Reilly did not do a great job with this. A lot of the things he complained about made no sense and some were even good things from a productivity standpoint.

    I remember going into an AT&T store to upgrade to the next windows phone generation. All the floor samples for the new windows phones were no where in sight. Had to get a manager to get one from the back so I could look at it. It was like pulling teeth the whole way. To this day, I believe they actively hid them from customers. They also did not know a thing about this product and kept trying to push the android or iphone sale.

    This concept is cool but the poor performance with SD 855 and touching once screen collapsing the keyboard on the other... Plus, the device's internals are not balanced at all. I know that this is a first-gen device but even first-gen Galaxy Fold had much less trouble going for it. Yikes.

    I was expecting a lot more from them. I like the basic concept but really can't get behind this. IMHO the screen aspect ratio is just wrong for this. Pen support should have been a standard feature and this thing should come with one. I would not expect to be able to do two things at the same time on both screens, but I'd expect that the keyboard wouldn't close on one screen when you touch the other.

    I don't understand people's dislike of Bing and Edge. I have been using them exclusively for five years and they have met every need. I have a coworker who cringes when i use Bing. But when i showed him some of its features, he thought that they were pretty interesting. And after he bashed Edge for not having some feature that Chrome has (cached websites), i proved him wrong by simply opening the Settings menu and activating the feature within Edge. And i have done the same thing with Bing to prove that it works just fine.

    @8:47 and it's mostly controlled with android native interfaces wait until your mind starts to fade as you get old or your disabled and didn't choose to learn to different ecosystems both a laptop os and some other major brand interface as it changes and updates all the time. This is precisely why windows phone was good the controls for both had been put together into one. Now we would have to find a trainer phone to get used to how we interface with things we need on a daily basis.

    If third party developers had adopted support for Windows phone, I firmly believe it would still be a viable alternative today. Compared to iOS and Android, it was MUCH more polished, more stable, and had some really cool features when compared to rivals during the same time period. In fact, I still have my HTC 8X, and sometimes I boot it up just to play around with it. And even today, it still feels snappy, still feels more advanced than either iOS or Android, and really makes me wish it had survived.

    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!!!

CLEARLY this dork, who calls himself a "Reviewer", just wanted to put this device on the table and simply start making fun of it INSTEAD of trying to give an un-biased review of form, function and features that maybe we would derive something out of . But his tainted-immature and lack of expertise approach was to simply throw down a smack-attack on both MS and the Duo - THANKS BUT NO THANKS - MORON! Hard to understand how you could possibly have that many Subs if more of your videos are of this variety - PURE LAME SHIT Again, stopped viewing your garbage - Does anyone ever have praise anymore for companies taking the initiative and RD will-power to try and come up with innovative and useful devices? Common sense should serve that while new form factors may not be perfect or have every cutting edge feature and certainly may not be for everyone, they are EXACTLY what they are! PURPOSE BUILT DEVICES!! Form over function and function over form - it's always what best suits YOU as an individual. We Should at least be thankful these companies are trying hard to come up with something other than simply another flagship of the month Slab phone. Microsoft Duo - Samsung Fold - Z fold2 - Z Flip - Motorola RAZR - LG Wing - and a few other companies to mention... I WAS going to purchase the Duo, but as a tech-savvy power user, I knew the form factor wasn't more of my style of use, so I passed on that. I did however purchase the Z Fold 2 - I have No Regrets. First, it's a POWERHOUSE - 12GB Memory for my Multitasking and SnapDragon 865+ kill it ! I can say, it's HEAVY (it's essentially 2 phones) and you know when its in your pocket. But that's about the worst I can say about it. As a POWERUSER - I know why I bought it, FOR THE FOOTBALL FIELD SIZED SCREEN!! hahahaha When I open it - there is nothing on ANY phone more satisfying! THAT'S WHY I BOUGHT IT!! So it is what it is.! But this reviewer?? He is a fucking JOKE - LAMMER Get real or get lost!
