Microsoft Surface Duo Unlocked (128GB): was $1,400 now $999 @ Amazon
At $400 off its normal price, this unlocked Surface Duo is at its lowest price yet. It features dual 5.6-inch (1800 x 1350) AMOLED displays, Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. 

The Surface Duo is one of the most versatile phones out there. It can rotate into several modes including tablet, tent, compose, book, and peek.

In our Microsoft Surface Duo review, we liked its thin and lightweight design and color rich display. We were also impressed by its innovative 360-degree hinge and double-app productivity.

When it comes to design, Microsoft engineers made the Surface Duo compact and portable. At a glance, it looks like a small book or a tiny white purse. It retains the same clean-cut, minimalist aesthetic that's synonymous with Microsoft's Surface devices.

In real-world multitasking tests, the Surface Duo juggled 20 Google Chrome tabs on the left screen and a Netflix video streaming on the right without slowing down. As for battery life, the phablet lasted 9 hours and 27 minutes on our Laptop Mag battery test.

Weighing in at 0.5 pounds and 5.7 x 7.4 x 0.18 inches open, the Surface Duo is more slender than the competitor, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 (0.27 inches thin, 0.6 pounds). Surface Duo sports a single USB 3.1 Type-C port and no headphone jack, however, Bluetooth support lets you connect to wireless audio devices like the Surface Headphones 2 or Surface Earbuds.

This deal likely won't last long, so don't hesitate to grab this multifunctional device for its best price yet.
