Surface Duo: repairing this folding will be next to impossible

Almost a year after its presentation, the Surface Duo is finally starting to hit the market. Who also had access to the foldable was iFixit and its conclusions, regarding the possibility of repairing this foldable, are not the best.

This entity gave the Surface Duo a score of 2 out of 10 for ease of repair. This means that the new smartphone from Microsoft will not have been built with an eventual replacement of its components in mind.

iFixit doubts that even Microsoft can repair the Surface Duo

IFixit’s reservations about the possibility of repairing the Surface Duo are so many that it wonders if that was ever Microsoft’s intention. The complexity of this task is so great that the question is raised whether even Microsoft will be able to repair its folding.

This score contributed to issues such as fragile cables, sticky glue or a battery that is difficult to repair. In addition to this we have a USB-C port that is soldered to the smartphone’s main board or the use of screws with an unconditional three-point head.

But it’s not all bad news for anyone who ventures to repair this equipment. On the positive side, the Surface Duo has screens and back covers that are easy to remove, without interfering with the other components.

These conclusions are a strong incentive for those who purchase a Surface Duo to be extremely careful with the way they use it. It is noted that repairing the equipment will not be an easy task and even if it is feasible, it can lead to high costs.

Surface Duo specifications

  • Two 5.6 “inch AMOLED screens with 1350 x 1800 pixels resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor
  • 6GB of RAM
  • 128GB / 256GB internal memory, without support for microSD card
  • 11MP camera
  • Fingerprint reader on the side
  • 3577mAh battery
  • Android 10

The first foldable from Microsoft may surprise you in some ways, but never by its specifications. These are below what would be expected for a top product in 2020 and this translates into an experience that leaves something to be desired.
