Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) Review

Score: 82.4 / 100

Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) is an absolutely great tablet released in 2017, packed with a really big 12.3 inches screen, an extremely powerful 2500 megahertz Dual-Core processor, and two cameras, an 8 MP back side camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera.

Microsoft decided to sell this tablet with an extremely fast 2500 megahertz Dual-Core processing unit, included in a Intel Core-i7 system chip with a huge 16 GB RAM memory. A good point of this tablet is its inmense 1000 GB internal storage memory and whereas it doesn't have an external SD slot, it is still enough to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games currently available without having to worry about how much storage capacity is left.

This tablet is just available in 16 777 216 color. The Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) doesn't feel very lightweight for a tablet this size, weighting 27.65 oz. About its materials quality, the Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) is mostly made with Metal . This tablet is just 0.33 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest tablet's category. Whereas this tablet is only 11.5" long and 7.93 inches wide, it manages to hold a 12.3 inches screen.

Microsoft designed this tablet with a nice 12.3" screen, and a 2736 x 1824 resolution, which makes it hard to see the pixels in the screen.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, an 8 megapixels back-facing camera and a 5 MP front camera. It is also able to capture videos in Full HD 1920x1080.

This tablet includes Wi-Fi connectivity (although it can't provide it to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot). This tablet doesn't use a sim card, because it doesn't work with GSM services.

The Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) also comes with Bluetooth (4.1 ), and a few sensors likeLight Sensor, Accelerometer and Gyroscope.

This tablet is priced about $ 2699, a very high price for a tablet this level. The Microsoft Surface Pro (2017) is probably the right choice no matter whether you are an amateur photographer, will use this tablet device mostly for social networks, want this device for playing games or will use it for work.
