Microsoft Surface Duo: lousy tablet, okay phone, great device

Microsoft's Surface Duo is the first phone we've seen from the company in a while, and it's a strange device. Sleek and stylish, the Surface Duo looks like nothing so much as two phones stuck together, folding with a visible hinge down the middle, and that's essentially how it feels. The seam makes the Duo questionable as a tablet - most apps that span both screens don't format properly or have gaps - but the Duo makes using two apps at once a breeze. Tasks like emailing while updating your calendar, watching video while scrolling twitter, or making a video call while taking notes make you wonder how you ever managed with a single screen. And then the software glitches out and makes you wonder what's even the point. Unfortunately, the Duo is still pretty buggy, and needs a lot of work to fulfill it's dual-screen promise, but it's a look at a foldable phone that doesn't just feel like a gimmick.
