Microsoft''s Surface Duo phones stand out from the crowd of dull conventional smartphones owing to its dual-screen and productivity benefits. Another advantage that arguably improves the Surface Duo than your average iPhone or Samsung Galaxy is the ability to run Windows 11 (unofficially). Until recently, such a neat feature was only available on the first-generation Surface Duo, but now users can try their luck and swap Android 11 for Windows.
The Surface Duo 2 can be installed in Windows, according to Gustave Monce. Although it might be exciting, the process may be long and complicated, and the developer recommends waiting for a more user-friendly version.
If a substantial technical guide does not scare you straight, then a list of features that do not work on the Surface Duo 2 when running Windows will most likely make you think twice before trying. As of today, nothing works except the left display, UFS, and one processor core.
The first-gen Surface Duo is now available for a little more than $300, plus the Windows 11 version is a lot better experience.
Microsoft recently demonstrated the Android 12L upgrade for its dual-screen smartphones. It will incorporate many design elements from Windows 11 to the first and second-generation Surface Duo, making Microsoft''s smartphones more similar to the desktop operating system.
