What is Microsoft Store return policy on Surface Duo 2?

60 days.

No questions asked, no restocking fee. Item must be in its original packaging and “like new” condition.

Microsoft outlines its “Surface promise”, where it details its Microsoft Store policies on Surace purchases.

It includes:

  • Fast, free shipping (2-3 days)
  • 60-day return policy: Must be returned as “like new” in its original packaging
  • 60-day low price promise: If Microsoft drops the price of the Surface you purchased within 60 days, it will refund the difference
  • 90 days free support: Free technical phone assistance for your device

Is there education or military discounts for Surface Duo 2?

No.

Typically, Microsoft offers a 10% discount for eligible students, parents, teachers, and the military. However, as of right now, no such deduction is being provided with Surface Duo 2.

Will Surface Duo 2 be available via Surface All Access?

No.

Microsoft is not making Surface Duo available through its Surface All Access program. However, Microsoft offers financing options, including 0% interest payments over 24 months, through the company directly and other options via third-party retail and reseller partners.

What countries is Surface Duo 2 available in?

Surface Duo 2 is available in the following markets:

  • United States

  • Canada
  • France
  • Germany
  • Japan
  • Australia

Surface Duo 2 will likely roll out to more markets in 2022.

Can Surface Duo 2 be ordered overseas?

Yes, (unofficially).

Microsoft is not selling Surface Duo direct to customers outside of the markets listed above. However, there are third-party sites like Big Apple Buddy, who can facilitate the transaction. The process is simple: You order from Big Apple Buddy, they order from a US retailer, they ship you Surface Duo 2. Of course, such a service requires a $50 fee, plus FedEx shipping, and any import fees or taxes adding close to an extra $200 to Surface Duo’s retail price.

Is Surface Duo 2 a phone?

Everything you need to know about the new Surface Duo 2

Yes.

Unlike the first Surface Duo, Microsoft is embracing the idea of a phone with Surface Duo 2. It has added capable cameras, NFC, 5G, and Bluetooth 5.1 along with other upgrades such as 90Hz displays, and bundling Xbox Game Pass too. This is all in an effort to make the Surface Duo 2 a better, more fun phone compared to the first one.

Who is Surface Duo 2 for?

Surface Duo 2 is for anyone who wants to be more productive using their smartphone. With dual screens, Microsoft believes, like, with dual-screen PC desktop setups, people will be able to get more work done.

On a more fundamental level, Microsoft says Surface Duo is for Surface and Microsoft fans, and those who live in the Microsoft ecosystem. Microsoft’s chief product officer Panos Panay has stated that Surface Duo is “the Microsoft you love and the Android you know.”

Can Surface Duo 2 fit in your pocket?

Yes, it should!

While everyone has different size pockets and pants, Surface Duo is only slightly taller than a standard US Passport and nearly the same width. While it is a wide phone, it is shorter than most modern smartphones and relatively thin.

Will there be a Surface Duo 3?

Microsoft has not publicly announced any plans for Surface Duo 3.

However, our reporting from sources familiar with the project have told us that work on the next Surface Duo is well underway. Like every other smartphone OEM, Microsoft is like to follow a yearly-upgrade cadence, making a late 2022 release for a third Surface Duo a possibility.

What version of Android does Surface Duo 2 run?

Android 11.

Surface Duo 2 is expected to get Android 12 in 2022.

Will Surface Duo 2 get regular Android OS updates?

Yes. For 3 years.

Microsoft is committed to updating Surface Duo with regular Android and security updates. Specifically, the Surface Duo will receive both OS and security updates for three years, according to Microsoft.

Does Surface Duo 2 have an unlockable bootloader?

Yes.

Microsoft has confirmed with XDA that Surface Duo has an unlockable bootloader.

Such a move opens the door for users to mod, root, or install a custom ROM to Surface Duo. It is unclear if this action voids the warranty, but typically it does not. It is also unclear if one could force Windows 10 or Windows 10X on it, though surely someone in the XDA community may try after its release.

Does Surface Duo 2 have any unique security features?

Yes.

As Microsoft has built Surface Duo 2 with professionals and businesses in mind, the device “utilizes Android security features at the OS level and at the Google services layer.”

Specifically, Surface Duo has:

  • Custom engineered UEFI
  • Verified Boot
  • App separation
  • Google Play Protect
  • Microsoft Defender ATP (InTune only)

More information and details about Duo’s security can be found in Microsoft’s documentation.

What is included with Surface Duo 2?

Surface Duo ships with the following in the box:

  • Surface Duo 2
  • Surface Duo USB-C Cable
  • Quick Start Guide Warranty and Compliance Guide
  • SIM Ejector tool
  • Wired Headphones (Outside USA)

Surface Duo 2 does not include a charging brick, and it also doesn’t come with a bumper case like the first Surface Duo did.

Can the protective bumper be removed and reused?

While no longer included, Microsoft still sells a protective bumper case for the Surface Duo 2 separately. The bumper allows Surface Duo 2 to be opened in both directions without interference, but also offers protection to its edges and corners.

The bumper is held on by two-way tape. Users can remove the case, but multiple reapplications will eventually wear out the stickiness. Presumably, using some third-party two-way tape can be used if this were to occur.

Are there more colors for case bumpers?

Microsoft has four colors available for the Surface Duo 2 bumpers, including:

  • Obsidian
  • Glacier
  • Light Blue
  • Tangerine

Is Surface Duo 2 metal or glass?

Glass.

Surface Duo’s dual displays and exterior shell are all Corning Gorilla Glass. The outer frame is ceramic.

Microsoft likely uses glass on the exterior to help with processor and chip thermal regulation (glass does not transfer heat like metal) and longevity (metal cases can scratch or dent). Glass also feels very premium.

Does Surface Duo 2 have an AMOLED display?

Yes.

Surface Duo has two AMOLED 5.8 inch (1892×1344) displays with 441 pixel-per-inch (ppi) and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus for protection. Each display has a 4:3 aspect, but when the two screens are combined, it results in an 8.1 inch screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio and 441ppi.

Which U.S. carriers does Duo 2 work on?

The Surface Duo 2 is confirmed to work on all major carriers, including:

  • AT&T (unlocked, or AT&T-locked model)

If customers buy the unlocked model, it should also work on any mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) e.g., Mint Mobile, Boost Mobile, etc.

Does Surface Duo 2 support Android Auto?

Yes.

Like all modern Android phones, Surface Duo supports Android Auto so long as the connecting car supports the feature. Users can plugin and/or use Bluetooth to pair Surface Duo to the car for phone calls, maps, music, etc.

Which Surface Pen works with Surface Duo 2?

Simultaneous Pen and touch are supported

The pen is not included with purchase. Surface Duo 2 also doesn’t support haptics with the Surface Slim Pen 2.

Does Surface Pen Slim attach magnetically to Surface Duo 2?

Yes, sort of.

Surface Duo 2 does have magnets that can hold the pen, but this isn’t by design and it will not charge the pen when docked. Microsoft does sell a separate pen charging cover that includes much stronger magnets, which clips to the front of the Duo 2 and allows the pen to be stored and charged.

How many cameras does Surface Duo 2 have?

  • Dynamic dock
  • Universal Search
  • Adaptive Camera
  • Microsoft SwiftKey Adaptive Keyboard
  • Your Phone Companion – Link to Windows

Do all Android apps work with Surface Duo 2?

Yes.

Any app on Android and the Google Play store will just work on Surface Duo. Opening links in one app will open the app on the other display, so long as there is nothing already present.

There is no app incompatibility, and there are no limitations on what can be installed to Surface Duo.

Developers optionally can optimize apps for Surface Duo to take advantage of the dual-screen functionality by utilizing the official Microsoft Surface Duo SDK. Examples of optimized apps (so far) include Spotify, Amazon Kindle, and Mylio (photo editor).

Gameloft has released three games that have been updated to support the Surface Duo 2’s split design. These games are Asphalt 9 Legends, Modern Combat 5, and Dungeon Hunter 5.

Because Surface Duo has dual 4:3 displays and can pivot just like a book, the reading experience on Surface Duo should be exceptionally good.

What colors does Surface Duo 2 come in?

Surface Duo 2 is available in Glacier White and Obsidian Black colorways.

Does Surface Duo 2 support NFC and contactless payments?

Yes!

Surface Duo 2 supports NFC and contactless payments via Google Pay. The NFC tag is located behind the left display, meaning you’ll need to fold the Duo 2 into single-screen mode first before you can utilize it properly.

Can Surface Duo 2 charge wirelessly via Qi?

No.

Surface Duo does not have Qi wireless charging. It does support 23-watt Fast Charging through its Type-C 3.1 port.

Does Surface Duo 2 have a 3.5mm headphone jack?

No.

Surface Duo handles audio through the USB Type-C 3.1 port on the bottom (wired) or via Bluetooth 5.0 headphones like Surface Headphones, Surface Earbuds, or any other Bluetooth headset.

Is there expandable storage on Surface Duo 2 or microSD card?

No.

There is no microSD card slot or expandable storage on Surface Duo.

Does Surface Duo 2 support Continuum or docking?

No.

Although Surface Duo’s Type-C 3.1 port supports video out, this does not mean it has a “docking mode” or support for Microsoft Continuum. In other words, plugging into an external display will not give you something similar to Samsung DeX.

Is there water resistance or an IP rating?

Yes.

Surface Duo 2 has an IPX1 rating, which offers some basic water protection. The rating is for “dripping water with vertically falling drops … when mounted in an upright position onto a turntable and rotated at 1 RPM.”

So essentially, you can use the Surface Duo 2 in the rain without worry, but don’t drop it in any body of water.

Where is your review of Surface Duo 2?
