Surface Duo - First Impressions and Reactions - Krazy Ken's Tech Misadventures

Sains & Teknologi

The Microsoft Surface Duo is a first-gen, foldable, device from Microsoft. Today, Krazy Ken unboxes it, and takes and tests it for the first time. You'll see the raw reactions as everything unfolds (get it?). And yes, that means you'll witness the bugs, too. Hey, it ain't perfect, but it sure is pretty!

    Now looking at it, this device doesn't make sense in many ways. I don't really like how when one program is open, it doesn't occupy both screens. Plus I don't think this dual screen concept is really practical when out in the real world in day to day use.

    My iPhone 12 Pro Max did the same video stutter on the first two videos I recorded for some reason. And it WAS baked into the video. But then after that it didn’t happen with any other videos. So I’m hoping the video stutter on this Surface Duo isn’t permanent and is just a software bug! I know we don’t expect the Duo to have the best camera, but the frame rate should be an easy thing to get right! If it weren’t for that frame rate then it would be decent

    I think android is its biggest weakness. I would love to have a super light, nice looking tablet/netbook combo, including the great dual screen features, much more useful than foldable phones, but android is just bad if you wanna do more productive stuff with it (would be cool as a calendar/note taking device for meetings and for browsing the web). It should really have windows 10 (on ARM) including the x86-32 emulator. Having used several android tablets, I can say I just don't like it. Android is not great for tablets. iOS feels much more mature/productive then android, which feels just like a big phone

    @Computer Clan No,,you're right about the Microsoft App ecosystem being quite bad... But why d'you think that is the case? Would you think things would be the same if Microsoft would have properly supported Windows 10 Mobile? To turn things around, would you think Apple's App Store would be the success it is if Apple would've taken the same lacklustre approach to iOS? If support for iOS was as bad as that of Windows 10 Mobile, its App ecosystem would likely be just as bad... I mean, it's not like Microsoft really _tried_ to give Windows 10 Mobile a chance, is it? I honestly have to say that it's a shame, too, because it literally had tonnes of potential...

    @Rubén GoMo Radioboy I tried it briefly quite a while ago, but it still wasn't what I was hoping for compared to the Windows phone keyboard. I wish Microsoft had just brought their keyboard to Android rather than buying SwiftKey (which sort of looks like what they have done for the Surface Duo). I currently reluctantly use Google's keyboard as it irritates me less than the default Samsung keyboard, heh. EDIT: Though I have to say, SwiftKey looks a bit different than when I tried it a long time ago. Might have to give it another try.

    Interesting reactions from someone like yourself with limited experience with Android. Honestly, the Surface Duo is a terrible 'phone.' The problem is heavily on the software but also partially the hardware. The software appears to be full of bugs, so that part could get ironed out over time. But, the camera* looks terrible and also does a poor job with video as well. For 1500, you would expect way better. They also decided not to put a camera on the back. Who in their right mind would only want a selfie camera for all situations? What a terrible idea. And then, the speaker. Worst speaker on a smartphone in the past 5 years or more? Definitely. I think Microsoft has a lot of work to do if they want the Duo to succeed. Version 1.0 is definitely not the one to get.

    This would be cool with DS/3DS emulation, and for use as a mini laptop, but not at its current price, and with it's software bugs. I'll wait til the price of devices like this come down to the $350, the software is more mature, and they are more durable until I bite.

    1:01 The "Go" next to the storage measure is how it is said in French “Giga Octets”. While in most countries and languages, the word bytes (As a unit of measure for digital storage) is used, in France the word in French is “Octets” In 15:48 It is the flickering of light when a phone camera is in automatic mode and tries to correct the aperture or exposure when the light conditions change abruptly in the scene.

    @Computer Clan I watched the video several times, the low frame rate is obvious (From the image they seem about 15 fps, Disastrous for a high-end tablet on Android when there are models like Huawei or Samsung with better cameras and for a long time we already have Mid-range smartphones with 4K video) With the frame rate so low, jumps in light or exposure are more noticeable. What you should look at is: How the video looks on the tablet player and how the same video looks on other devices or being uploaded to video platforms.

    At 15:48, it is a low frame rate. Believe me. You maybe can't see it super well over a 24 fps video, but it was drop frames BAD. Take another look at it. ; )

    In the age of foldable displays dropping in price, Microsoft proves it is once again behind the curve by having noticeable bezels and a WIDE seam down the middle for over $1400. Good job. Also, all mainline foldbles like the galaxy fold, the z flip and the new razr also have glass screens. They use thin foldable glass.

  • Rich Daley

    We will probably see a lot more devices like this. Every review I have seen has the same conclusion which is it is not a phone but a companion device. The reality is that MS is banking (I think correctly) that people don't really use devices as phones anymore and if they do, they use a headset so being comfortable to use as a phone is not a priority. This device is a pure "curb appeal" device that CIOs will like because of the hardware and get them for their executive teams, especially in Microsoft shops. Like many regular, non business people, I love this device even though I can't think of any possible reason that I would need it.
