Microsoft Surface 3 Unboxing
Microsoft Surface 3 Review!

2 Reasons For

Good Brand

Microsoft tablet computers have good ratings on average and across all tablets Microsoft is one of the superior brands.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

The Microsoft Surface 3 has a very large internal storage capacity (128 gigabytes) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablets that have been available for around the same time as the Surface 3. The internal storage capacity of comparable spec tablets that have been around for a similar time to the Surface 3 range from 1.1GB to 520GB.

2 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

The Microsoft Surface 3 is not 3G compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other tablet computers that came out more than a year ago are also not 3G compatible.

Chart Edit

Not 4G Compatible

Like most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that have been available for a similar time to the Surface 3, the Microsoft Surface 3 is not 4G compatible.

Tablets which are 4G compatible that might also be worth considering include the Samsung SM-T700 Galaxy Tab S which is also higher rated.
