Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Review

5 Reasons For

Good Brand

Based on 3,530 owner and expert reviews, Microsoft has good reviews for its tablets. Microsoft also has good reviews specifically within its tablets range compared to other manufacturers.

Just Released Five Months Ago

Microsoft only released the Surface Pro 3 five months ago.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

The internal storage capacitys of tablets that came out around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 range from 4GB to 1.1TB, and the average internal storage capacity is 120GB. At 128 gigabytes, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has a fairly large internal storage capacity compared to most of the other tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 3.

We compared all the other 128GB internal storage capacity tablet computers to this tablet computer and we think the Samsung SM-W700 Galaxy Tab Pro S[plb_3189587_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Fairly Large Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 4 gigabytes, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has a fairly large internal memory compared to most of the other tablets that have been on the market for a similar time to the Surface Pro 3. The smallest internal memory of recently released tablet computers is 1GB and the largest is 16GB.

Chart Edit

2160 X 1440 Pixels Display Resolution

The Surface Pro 3 has a maximum display resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels. That's over three times the display resolution of the most frequently found display resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Across all new tablets the best display resolution is 2736 x 1824 pixels and the worst is 1024 x 600 pixels.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Not 4G

The Surface Pro 3 is not 4G, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec tablet computers that came out in the last year are also not 4G.

Chart Edit

Not 3G

The Surface Pro 3 is not 3G, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec tablets that have been around for a comparable time to the Surface Pro 3 are also not 3G.

Chart Edit

Heavy

At 800 grams, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is quite heavy compared to most of the other tablets that came out in the last 12 months. The lightest new comparable spec tablet is 200g heavy, the heaviest is 2.7kg, and the average weight is 640g.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Average Display Diagonal

The Surface Pro 3 has a pretty typical display diagonal (12 inches) compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 12" tablets currently available including the Samsung SM-W700 Galaxy Tab Pro S[plb_3189587_price] which has better reviews.

Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

The Surface Pro 3 has a relatively average rear camera resolution (numeric) (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other tablets that came out in the last 12 months.

If you would prefer a higher rear camera resolution (numeric) then you might want to consider the SM-T813N + Cover[pl_3829755_price] (8MP), or the SM-T580[pl_3831286_price] (8MP) both from Samsung.
