3 Reasons Against

Not 4G

Not 3G

Very Low Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

With a rear camera resolution (numeric) of only 5 megapixels, the Surface 2 has a quite low rear camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other tablets of a similar spec and age to the Surface 2. The rear camera resolution (numeric)s of tablet computers that came out around the same time as the Surface 2 range from 5MP to 8MP.

We compared all the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus Transformer Pad TF701[plb_1663203_price] is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a tablet computer with a higher rear camera resolution (numeric) then you might want to consider the Toshiba Excite AT10LE-A-108[plb_2278766_price] (8MP and higher rated), or the HP Slate 8 Pro[plb_2336167_price] (8MP and higher rated).
