    This means that the Duo 2 will have less than two weeks of being up-to-date, because according to Windows Central "The Surface Duo is the only Surface device being announced at the event that doesn't ship with Windows 11. Instead, it will ship with Android 11 out of the box."

    Help! This Dailysteals listed SDUo says "Locked to AT&T, and cannot be unlocked." Anyone had experience with this? Is it really unlockable and should I stay away?
    Had a terrible experience with the one I bought on Swappa. Arrived yesterday after a whole month and there was a problem with the hinge. Plus the S/N was for a 256GB model (while mine was 128) when I registered it to service request on MS support. Just shipped it back this morning.

    And now it is thicker? "...but Microsoft found room to increase the 3577mAh battery by making the phone thicker, and now each half is 5.5 mm."

    Still not as porky as my Fold 3, but not as good either...and the price of the 256gb model is only $200 less than the base model Fold 3 (which you can get for $200 off on Amazon)...:p

    Can you answer a call with the side panel and keep the phone closed?

    Some measurements on my Duo. Note that the individual surfaces appear to be slightly "spring-y," that is I get a slightly different reading on my calipers (good to 4-1/2 digits) depending upon how much pressure I'm applying. Therefore, don't expect these numbers to exactly add up:
    • Total thickness, Duo closed, hinge side: 0.4100"
    • Total thickness, Duo closed, open side: 0.3870"
    • Thickness, Duo open, side A: 0.2200" (5.588 mm)
    • Thickness, Duo open, side B: 0.2075" (5.2705 mm)
