Five most underrated gadgets of 2020
From the Apple AirPods Max to the Microsoft Surface Duo, these are the most underrated gadgets of 2020.
In the crowded market for tech products, there’s a good chance that some may have been overlooked by consumers and trade pundits. This isn’t to say they aren’t excellent, or deserve less appreciation. But these gadgets are worth talking about — despite the fact that they didn’t get the mainstream attention they deserved. We thought these five gadgets fit the list.
Microsoft Surface Duo
It’s possibly the most underrated gadget of the year, partly due to the fact Microsoft is behind the Surface Duo and not Apple or Samsung. The dual-screen Surface Duo was never meant to be the “regular” device we know, despite that, some intentionally tried to compare it to the existing smartphones. With Duo, Microsoft tried to reimagine the smartphone and that thought should be welcome, no matter how good or bad the device is.
The duo is a first-generation device and knowing Panos Panay, the company’s chief product officer, the second-generation device hopefully will be much better. Regardless of how people judged Microsoft’s innovative dual-screen Android device, the Surface Duo served its purpose. Read our first impressions of the Surface Duo here.
