Microsoft Surface Duo Unboxing

On September 15, 2020, my new Microsoft Surface Duo mobile phone arrived. The phone runs on Android but uses the Microsoft Launcher interface. Mobile Microsoft Office apps were preinstalled. Here is the unboxing.

The box included the white phone, protective bumper, and USB-C power supply. I did not install the bumper.

Because the phone does not have a headphone jack, I had already ordered a USB-C to 3.5 mm audio adapter separately.

Google and Microsoft apps were pre-installed.

Setup was very simple. I set my old Google Pixel XL phone on the table next to it and followed the prompts to transfer all apps and settings (including passwords) from one phone to the other. I was up and running in less than 30 minutes.

Here are some specifications:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform
  • 6 GB RAM
  • 128 GB memory
  • Two 1800×1350 high-resolution 5.6” touchscreens
  • 11.0 megapixel camera with 4K video at 30 fps and 60 fps
