The original Surface Duo Microsoft unveiled almost three years ago is now tremendously affordable. What initially was a $1,399 dual-screen phone is now only a $317 dual-screen phone that also happens to be capable of running Windows 11 (unofficially, of course).
Although the original Surface Duo is mostly considered an overpriced flop due to lackluster software, an outdated processor, and a bad camera, some users consider this quirky device a perfect alternative to Kindle or just a fun Android smartphone with two screens and an over-engineered hinge. And now, a $317 price tag will help potential Surface Duo buyers forgive its numerous shortcomings.
You can save on two configurations of the original Surface Duo. Discounts are available for the base 128GB configuration and the more expensive 256GB variant.

If you do not want to deal with the limitations of the original Surface Duo and prefer something more modern and powerful, Microsoft's second-gen Surface Duo is here for you, although with a slightly different price tag.
Would you consider buying the original Surface Duo for only $317?
