Microsoft Surface 3 Review

    See other variants reviews Score: 65.9 / 100

Microsoft Surface 3 is an amazing tablet device launched in 2015, having a large 10.8" touch-screen, a powerful 1.6 gigahertz processing unit, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 3.5 mega-pixels front camera.

This time, it seems like Microsoft forgot about weight optimization in this 21.92 oz device. This tablet only has 10.51 inches long, but it's still able to fit a a 10.8 inches screen. This tablet is just 0.34" thick, making it one of the thinnest tablets currently available.

This tablet is equipped with a fast 1600 MHz processor, included in a Intel Atom system chip and a large 4 GB of RAM memory. This tablet counts with a impressive 128 GB internal storage and a slot for SD memory cards, more than enough to install hundreds of applications without worrying about running out of space.

Microsoft designed this device with a interesting 10.8 inches display, and a resolution of 1280 x 1920 , making everything look vivid.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, an 8 MP back side camera and a 3.5 MP front-facing camera. This device can also shoot videos in Full HD 1920x1080. This camera also features auto-focus.

This tablet features wi-fi connectivity (but it can't share it with other devices around, acting as a wireless modem), LTE (4G) fast connection type and fast 3G internet connection, over HSPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This device uses a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

The Microsoft Surface 3 also includes a few nice characteristics like Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Microsoft is selling this tablet for 349 dollars, which is very expensive for comparing with similar tablets. It doesn't matter whether you you love taking photos, want this tablet for work, need a tablet to majorly use social networks and internet browsing or want a tablet to play lots of games, this device is probably the correct choice .
