    1Does Microsoft Surface Duo come with earbuds?

    Alternatively, Surface Duo works best with Surface Earbuds as Surface Duo preloaded the Surface Audio app to enhance the user experience and functionality.

    No, it doesn’t! Surface Pen or stylus isn’t included in the box when you purchase Surface Duo. However, Surface Duo supports all Surface Pen shipped with Surface Pro 3 or later, including Surface Slim Pen, which perfectly fits the form factor of the Surface Duo. On top of that, it also supports all third-party styluses that use N-trig active pen technology.

    6Does Surface Duo have a headphone jack?

    No, it doesn’t! Surface Duo is skinny; there is no way it can afford space for a headphone jack. To use a headphone on Surface Duo, there are two workarounds:

    1. You will need a USB-C compatible headset or a USB-C to 3.5mm headphone adapter to use wired headphones on Surface Duo.
    2. Alternatively, Surface Duo works best with Surface Earbuds as Surface Duo preloaded the Surface Audio app to enhance the user experience and functionality.
    7Does Microsoft Surface Duo have NFC?

    No, it doesn’t! Surface Duo doesn’t have an NFC sensor, so it doesn’t support Google Pay and other features that NFC enables.

    8Does Surface Duo have an SD card slot?

    No, it doesn’t! Unfortunately, an SD or MicroSD card slot isn’t available on either Surface Duo. So, you should pick up an appropriate storage size when you purchase.

    9Does Microsoft Surface Duo support wireless charging?

    No, it doesn’t! Despite its all-glass design, Surface Duo has yet to include wireless charging support for its first generation. We hope Microsoft will add wireless charging to Surface Duo for its next generations. However, at least it does come with a fast charging solution with the included 18W USB-C charging adapter.
