B&H has a daily deal on the Microsoft Surface Duo where it's down to just $729.99. This is a uniquely low price, one of the best we've ever seen. Amazon is even having a sale on the Duo right now but can only drop as low as $745, which is $5 less than Microsoft but still not nearly as good as B&H's deal. It's a crazy low price considering this version of the Duo used to go for as much as $1,500 and still regularly sells for around $1,100. It's even better than the last deal we shared because this one is carrier unlocked, which means you can decide your SIM card and service plan on your own.
Check out our initial review of the Duo that gave it 3 stars. Back then the operating system was a little rough and the price was a little too steep, but it showed great promise. It has continued to live up to that promise with regular updates that include things like integrating with Xbox Game Pass. Your video games take full advantage of the two screens with touch controls on one side and the game you're playing on the other. The most recent updates have provided a lot of stability improvements as well as bug fixes, making the whole system a lot more optimized. Microsoft even plans to upgrade the Duo to Android 11 later this year.
The two PixelSense Fusion displays have a pixel resolution of 2700 x 1800 total with 8.1-inch AMOLED panels. They're also made with Corning Gorilla Glass, which is designed to keep them safe from scratches and cracks.
The tablet is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform processor, 6GB RAM, and has 256GB of storage. It even includes a fingerprint reader, LTE and Wi-Fi, 4k video recording at up to 60 fps, Fast Charging via USB-C, and a long-lasting battery life. The new tablet is covered by a one-year warranty from Microsoft.
