Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Review

7 Reasons For

Microsoft Tablets Have Good Reviews

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

Quite Large Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 12 inches, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has one of the larger display diagonals amongst tablets of this age. The smallest display diagonal of tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 3 is 6", the largest is 19", and the average display diagonal is 9.1".

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 12" tablets and we think the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_3089747_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this Microsoft tablet display diagonal is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Samsung SM-T677[plb_3210626_price] (18.4").

Quite Large Internal Storage Capacity

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has one of the larger internal storage capacitys (128 gigabytes) amongst tablets of this age. The average internal storage capacity of tablets of a comparable age and type to the Surface Pro 3 is 34GB, and the internal storage capacitys range from 4GB to 520GB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 128GB internal storage capacity tablet computers currently available including the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_4011885_price] which has better reviews.

Alternative 1.9GHz processor clock speed tablets currently available which you might also want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Samsung SM-T815 Galaxy Tab S2[plb_3247710_price], or the Microsoft Surface Pro 3[plb_3089747_price].

If you want a faster processor frequency then you might want to consider the Samsung SM-W708N[plb_3341871_price] (2.2GHz).

Chart Edit

2160 X 1440 Pixels Display Resolution

That's over five times the display resolution of a 1024 x 600 pixels tablet computer, which is the most frequently found display resolution.

3 Reasons Against

Not 3G

Most tablet computers that have been on the market for more than a year are not 3G. The Surface Pro 3 is no exception to this as it too is not 3G.

Chart Edit

Not 4G

Most tablet computers that have been around for a similar time to the Surface Pro 3 are not 4G. The Surface Pro 3 is no exception to this as it too is not 4G.

Chart Edit

Heavy

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Released Over a Year Ago

This tablet has been on the market for over a year.

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 tablet computers of a similar type and age to the Surface Pro 3.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablets currently available including the Samsung SM-T555N Galaxy Tab A[plb_2887182_price] which has better reviews.

If this Microsoft tablet computer rear camera resolution (numeric) is too low for you then you might want to look at the Samsung SM-T815 Galaxy Tab S2[plb_3247710_price] (8MP) which also has a higher rating.
