Surface Go review

 

We reveal if Microsoft's diminutive new device is a good choice for designers and digital artists.

Fantastic inking experience ; Bright and punchy screen

Poor battery life ; Expensive peripherals

The Go’s digital inking support just keeps getting better, and – despite the poor battery life and lack of gaming capabilities – the Go is a serious player in the increasingly competitive market of hybrid devices.

Hard Drive Failure

 

Bought in November 2018 and only used occasionally for work commitments. Hard drive has failed whilst on a work commitment in less than 11 months.

Not worth the money

 

I bought this to replace my Amazon Fire HD. To be honest the Fire tablet is faster and smoother than this Surface tablet. Waste of money! All the hype makes you laugh. Also picture shown displays a keyboard but apparently thats not supplied.

MICROSOFT 10" Surface Go - 128 GB, Silver

 

If you use Win 10 on desktop you'll be right at home with this tablet.

Microsoft store - mobile apps not great.

MICROSOFT 10" Surface Go - 128 GB, Silver

 

good size screen, boots up quickly, I like the size of the on-screen keyboard (didn't buy the pricey keyboard), good battery life, charges quickly, facial recognition as login works pretty well (unless it's very dark)

occasionally difficult to get the on-screen keyboard to come up when I need to log in with my PIN (when it's too dark, etc for the facial recognition), I find the Windows 10S too restrictive and upgraded to full version (for free, very easy) so I could...

MICROSOFT 10" Surface Go - 64 GB, Silver

 

Quick to boot up and able to use more than one app at a time

Should have read the small print and ignored the pictures selling the device. It doesn’t come with the keyboard - that’s an extra £100. Tried to make due by buying a standard keyboard then realised the surface TABLET doesn’t have a regular USB port so...

MICROSOFT 10" Surface Go - 128 GB, Silver

 

I love everything about it.

No real bad points but it would be good if the key pad came with it.

MICROSOFT 10" Surface Go - 64 GB, Silver

 

Compact, light, works well for light tasks like surfing the web and word.

Has crashed a few times, but I think that's Windows 10 rather than the surface. Underpowered and occasionally runs slow, should have got the one with more RAM.
