Microsoft Surface Duo 2 review: A great second impression

Microsoft Surface Duo 2 “The Microsoft Surface Duo 2 addresses almost every qualm we had with the original. It's a quirky phone that's fun to use.”. You only get one chance to make a first impression. But if your second impression is good enough, you can undo a lot of damage. A year ago. Microsoft tried to create a new class of mobile devices with the Surface Duo, which lives somewhere between a phone and a tablet. It’s built for multitasking pros who need to punch up a slide deck before a meeting or add some finishing touches to a contract before it’s sent off to the lawyers. To fit into this category, Microsoft created the Surface Duo — and it failed pretty spectacularly.

More Android users will be able to use the work profile feature next year

Next year, according to Engadget, more Android users will be able to separate their work apps from their personal apps using Google Workspace. Google currently allows enterprise users to use the work profile feature which allows employees to separate their work apps from their personal apps. When the phone's work profile is paused, work-related apps won't be able to send notifications or obtain the user's location preventing a company from finding out where the user is when not at work.

Pixel 6: Everything to know about Google's newest phone

Google's new phones, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, made their debut on Tuesday at the company's recent launch event. (Here's everything Google announced including Pixel Pass, Android 12 and its in-house Tensor chip.) Google's first Pixel phone made a splash when it was unveiled almost five years ago, but since then, the search giant's foray into mobile devices has been inconsistent. Last year's Pixel 5 received high marks for its cameras, but the Pixel 5 lacked the premium features you'd expect from a flagship smartphone, especially for the price. CNET's Lynn La called it "hard to recommend." Compared with the original Pixel phone ("pure Android at its absolute best" and "our favorite phone, bar none"), Google's phone trajectory looked rough.

Surface Duo 2 review: A huge step in the right direction, but still much work to be done

Microsoft's latest dual-screen Android phone gets major hardware revisions, which positively alters the experience, but the software still holds it back from greatness. In late 2019, Microsoft surprised the world with its grand idea for a modern pocketable computing experience with Surface Duo, a phone with two displays that resembled a digital diary. A year later, that device hit store shelves with a thud. Buggy software, a high price, and severely lacking hardware made it nearly impossible to recommend except for the bold early adopters and risk-takers.
