Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Review

6 Reasons For

Good Brand

Microsoft has good average ratings for its tablets as well as across its entire tablet range.

Just Released Five Months Ago

This tablet is one of the latest tablets to be released. As such it is likely to have better features than some of the older tablets.

Quite Large Internal Storage Capacity

At 256 gigabytes, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has a fairly large internal storage capacity compared to most of the other recently released tablet computers. Tablets that were launched around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 have internal storage capacitys of between 4GB and 1.1TB, and the average internal storage capacity is 120GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Large Internal Memory

The average internal memory of tablets that were launched in the last year is 3.8GB. The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has a fairly large internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other latest tablets.

Chart Edit

Fairly High Front Camera Resolution (numeric)

Across all the tablets that came out in the last year the front camera resolution (numeric)s range from 0.3MP to 5MP. With a front camera resolution (numeric) of 5 megapixels, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 has a quite high front camera resolution (numeric) compared to most of the other latest tablet computers.

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 a 1280 x 800 pixels tablet, which is the most common display resolution. The worst display resolution of all recently released comparable spec tablets is 1024 x 600 pixels and the best is 2736 x 1824 pixels.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Not 3G

The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is not 3G, although it is worth noting that most of the other tablets that are a comparable age to the Surface Pro 3 are also not 3G.

Chart Edit

Not 4G

The Surface Pro 3 is not 4G, although keep in mind that most of the other latest similar spec tablets are also not 4G.

Chart Edit

Heavy

At 800 grams, the Surface Pro 3 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other tablets that have been available for the last year. The average weight of similar spec tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the Surface Pro 3 is 670g, and the weights range from 240g to 2.7kg.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Microsoft Surface Pro 3

Average Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 12 inches, the Surface Pro 3 has a relatively average display diagonal compared to most of the other latest tablets.

If this Microsoft tablet display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the Surface Pro 4[pl_3874656_price] (12.3"), or the Surface Pro 4[pl_3874658_price] (12.3") both from Microsoft.

Average Rear Camera Resolution (numeric)

The Surface Pro 3 has a relatively standard rear camera resolution (numeric) (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other similar spec tablets that have been available for around the same time as the Surface Pro 3.

If you would prefer a higher rear camera resolution (numeric) then you might also want to look at the Surface Pro 4[pl_3874656_price] (8MP), or the Surface Pro 4[pl_3874658_price] (8MP) both from Microsoft.
