Microsoft launched the Surface Duo 2 this week. The foldable improves on its predecessor in several key areas, including having a Snapdragon 888 processor, better cameras, and a refined design. It also supports 5G and NFC, both of which the original Duo lacks.

We already knew the specs of the Surface Duo 2 and what it looked like. Preorders have been open for weeks. But since the device is now available, reviews have come out, helping people decide if the Duo 2 is worth its $1,500 price tag.

Our Surface Duo 2 review gave the device a 4/5 rating. Our executive editor Daniel Rubino highlighted the hardware and software improvements seen in the Duo 2 but also admitted its flaws, including some minor bugs.

"Don't let anyone tell you differently: Surface Duo 2 is a huge improvement over the first model. But the actual Surface Duo experience is waiting for another chapter, making Surface Duo 2 a nice milestone but still a novelty for many," says Rubino.

Other experts weren't as high on Microsoft's new foldable. Several reviewers ran into bugs during their testing. Others questioned the form factor of the device.

Now that reviews are out, we want to know if you plan to buy a Surface Duo 2. Did the reviews sway your opinion one way or the other? Let us know in our poll and explain your reasoning in the comments.
