Microsoft Surface 3 Review!

2 Reasons For

Microsoft Has Good Reviews for Its Tablet Computers

We calculated the average reviews for all Microsoft tablet computers and also specifically for Microsoft tablet computers and found that in both cases Microsoft had good reviews compared to other brands.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

At 128 gigabytes, the Surface 3 has a very large internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets of a comparable age and spec to the Surface 3. The average internal storage capacity of comparable spec tablets that have been around for around the same time as the Surface 3 is 29GB.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 128GB internal storage capacity tablet computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_3022999_price].

2 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

Like most of the other comparable spec tablets that have been around for a similar time to the Surface 3, the Surface 3 is not 3G compatible.

If you would prefer a tablet computer that is 3G compatible then you might also want to consider the Samsung SM-T555N Galaxy Tab A[plb_2887182_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not 4G Compatible

Like most of the other tablets of this age and spec, the Surface 3 is not 4G compatible.

Tablet computers which are 4G compatible that might be worth looking at include the SM-T700 Galaxy Tab S[pl_2747817_price], or the SM-T555N Galaxy Tab A[pl_2887182_price] both from Samsung.
