When we see the memory combination specification we can see the Microsoft Surface Duo have 6GB amount of RAM, then also have 128GB / 256GB internal memory storage capacity and sadly, Microsoft Surface Duo does not support for external memory expansion, but it fine by the way because the capacity amount from the internal memory storage is good enough for the user, although without the external memory expansion feature support.

Thus, is Microsoft Surface Duo have a good memory performance? from the spec said Microsoft Surface Duo it's good for use to any purpose in the modern use, but it's also depending from the user perspective need.
