Microsoft Surface Go 3 review: Third time’s a charm

 

The Microsoft Surface Go 3 isn't very fast or long lasting, but it's built well and a surprisingly enjoyable experience.

“The affordable Microsoft Surface Go 3 isn't a performer, but it still finds way to delight.”

Surface Go 3 review: A lateral upgrade for Microsoft’s uniquely affordable tablet

 

Microsoft's Surface Go 3 10.5-inch tablet offers Windows 11 and a small increase in processor power over last year's model, but not much else.

Windows 11 ; A slight improvement in processing power

Windows 11 ; A slight improvement in processing power

The Microsoft Surface Go 3 is the Surface Go 2 of 2021, and that’s about all there is to say.

Microsoft Surface Go 3 review: left behind

 

Microsoft picked the wrong processor.

Small and light ; Windows 11 looks nice ; Multi-user support

Bad battery life ; Keyboard cover too flimsy ; Too expensive

Microsoft’s tiniest Surface tablet got a small update, but it’s a step backward. Battery life is worse while the price is too high. It’s a computer begging for an Arm chip but stuck on Intel.

Microsoft Surface Go 3 Review

 

Low starting price ; Lightweight ; Sunny display with vivid colors ; Windows Hello webcam with 1080p video support ; Integrated kickstand ; SD card reader for easy storage expansion ; Long battery life

Keyboard cover not included ; Only one USB-C port ; Optional extras pump up price quickly ; Disappointing computing performance, even with Core i3 upgrade

Microsoft’s Surface Go 3 is the best budget Windows 2-in-1 tablet, but its performance and value are a bit below expectations for a third-generation product that competes against Chromebooks and the Apple iPad.

Microsoft Surface Go 3 review: A portable and versatile 2-in-1, but battery life disappoints | ZDNet

 

Surface Go 3 is still a tiny, lightweight and affordable full Windows PC, but Windows 11 may not shine on it.

The most affordable Surface device ; Excellent 10.5-inch screen ; High-quality webcam and speakers ; Core i3 processor option

Disappointing battery life under mainstream workloads ; Keyboard and stylus not included ; Not the best showcase for Windows 11

Microsoft Surface Go 3 review: The perfect 2-in-1 you can buy

 

If you're in the market for a 2-in-1, look no further and pick up the Surface Go 3. It's the lightest Surface by Microsoft available in India right now and is an incredible value proposition. Of course, it has some limitations, but it's also a great...

Incredibly portable and lightweight ; Decent battery life ; Value for money

Dated design ; Not the brightest display ; Not for gaming

Microsoft Surface Go 3 review

 

The Microsoft Surface Go 3 is a step back from the Surface Go 2, as performance and battery issues with Microsoft's latest tablet are frustrating.

Colorful display ; Solid design and durability ; Excellent webcam

Battery life is much shorter than the Go 2 ; Performance is no better than the Go 2 ; Optional Type Cover keyboard is cramped ; Heavier than competing tablets

Hopefully, we'll be talking about a fantastic new Microsoft Surface Go some day. That day, though, is not today.

I Love the Idea of a Windows 11 Tablet, but Surface Go 3 Is Just OK

 

I wish the Surface Go 3 was more powerful to make the most of Windows 11.

Versatile form factor, runs Windows 11, centered camera for video chat
