Tested In-Depth: Microsoft Surface 2 Review

Microsoft Surface 2 review | Engadget

8 Reasons For

Good Brand

Microsoft has good average ratings for its Tegra 4 processor tablets as well as across its entire tablet computer range compared to other brands.

Very Large Display Diagonal

When compared to other tablet computers of a similar age and spec to the Surface 2 that we have checked the display diagonal of, the Surface 2's display diagonal of 10.6 inches is one of the largest. The average display diagonal of Tegra 4 processor tablets that have been around for around the same time as the Surface 2 is 9.8", and the display diagonals range from 7" to 11".

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 10.6" tablets currently available including the Microsoft Surface 2[plb_2135235_price] which has better reviews.

3 Reasons Against

Not 4G

The Surface 2 is not 4G, although it is worth noting that most of the other tablets that were released more than two years ago are also not 4G.

If you want a tablet computer that is 4G then you might want to look at the Microsoft Surface 2[plb_2336052_price].

Not 3G

Like most of the other tablets that were released more than two years ago, the Surface 2 is not 3G.

Tablet computers which are 3G that might be worth considering include the Toshiba Excite AT10LE-A-107[plb_2515672_price] which also has a higher rating.

Very Low Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

The Microsoft Surface 2 has a quite low rear camera resolution (numeric) (only 5 megapixels) compared to most of the other tablets of a similar spec and age to the Surface 2. The lowest rear camera resolution (numeric) of comparable spec tablet computers that were released more than two years ago is 5MP, the highest is 8MP, and the average rear camera resolution (numeric) is 6.8MP.

We compared this tablet to all the other 5MP rear camera resolution tablets and we think the Microsoft Surface 2[plb_2135235_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
