6 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Microsoft tablet computers have good ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all tablet computers manufactured by Microsoft.

Quite Large Screen Size

Across all the tablet computers of this age and type the screen sizes range from 4.2" to 19". With a screen size of 12 inches, the Surface Pro 3 has a very large screen size compared to most of the other tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the Surface Pro 3.

If this tablet screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the Samsung Galaxy View (18.4") which is also cheaper.

Fairly Large Internal Storage Capacity

Across all the tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 the internal storage capacity range from 1.1GB to 520GB, and the average internal storage capacity is 23GB. When compared to other tablet computers that were released one year ago that we have checked, the internal storage capacity of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 of 128 gigabytes is one of the largest.

Chart Edit

Very High Front Camera Resolution

The front camera resolution of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 of 5 megapixels is one of the highest amongst tablet computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Surface Pro 3. Tablet computers that are a similar age to the Surface Pro 3 have front camera resolutions of between 0.3MP and 8MP, and the average front camera resolution is 1.5MP.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Internal Memory

The internal memory of tablets of a similar spec and age to the Surface Pro 3 range from 0.5GB to 16GB, and the average internal memory is 1.7GB. When compared to other tablet computers that are a similar age to the Surface Pro 3, the internal memory of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 of 4 gigabytes is one of the largest.

Chart Edit

2160 X 1440 Pixels Display Resolution

The biggest display resolution of the Surface Pro 3 is 2160 x 1440 pixels. That's over three times the display resolution of a 1280 x 800 pixels tablet computer, which is the most frequently found display resolution. The display resolution of all tablet computers that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 3 ranges from 800 x 400 pixels (worst) to 2732 x 2048 pixels (best).

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

Most tablet computers of this age and spec are not 3G compatible. The Surface Pro 3 is no exception to this as it too is not 3G compatible.

Tablet computers which are 3G compatible that might be worth considering include the Samsung GT-N8000 Galaxy Note which also has a higher rating.

Not 4G Compatible

Like most of the other tablet computers that have been around for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3, the Surface Pro 3 is not 4G compatible.

Tablet computers which are 4G compatible that might also be worth considering include the Samsung SM-T715 Galaxy Tab S2 which is also cheaper.

Only Two Processor Cores

Most tablet computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 have between two and seven processor cores, including the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 which has two processor cores.

Tablet computers with more processor cores that might be worth considering include the Samsung Galaxy View (8 processor cores) which is also cheaper.

Heavy

3 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Released Over a Year Ago

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

Average Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 1.5 gigahertz, the Surface Pro 3 has a fairly typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other similar spec tablet computers that came out more than a year ago.

If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the Samsung Galaxy View (1.6GHz and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Rear Camera Resolution

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has a relatively standard rear camera resolution (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the Surface Pro 3.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 5MP rear camera resolution tablet computers currently available including cheaper tablets such as the Samsung SM-T555 Galaxy Tab A.

If this tablet rear camera resolution is too low for you then you might want to consider the SM-T815N Galaxy Tab S2 ($599.99) (8MP), or the SM-T815 Galaxy Tab S2 (8MP) both from Samsung.
