I own (among other things) a Surface 3.
What I love about the Surface 3 is the kickstand. Having a Kickstand means also not needing
a Cover for it. For most of my tablets I owned over the years I needed a Cover
to use it in the right angel. With Surface 3 and Surface Pro 3 it’s no longer
needed. Although I should mention the Kickstand of the previous models weren’t sufficient
I also love that its fanless. That’s very important for a good tablet. And I really really
like the Startbutton. I know not many people like it, but I really love that it’s
there. Especially for Windows 10 it’s important. Otherwise you have to move
your arm around every time you just want to reach the start button on the
taskbar. It’s soo annoying. But I also liked Windows 8.1 on a tablet way more
What I don’t really like is the design. It’s okay but it’s not great. As I said in the other
threads, I for one prefer the Design of the Lumia 2520 for example. Every time
I see it in the shiny red I just go “wow that looks great”. But there’s no accounting for taste.
I also hate the charging time! Compared to the Lumia 2520 with fast charging it’s big pain
in the ass to wait so long.
What would I do differently if I were Microsoft? Hm. For one, of course I would use an
OLED Display and combine it with the brightness of the Lumia 2520.
I would switch from N-Trig to EMR Wacom to not have a battery in the Pen and a better
experience. And of course make sure it’s as good adjusted as the Samsung
Furthermore, change the Design and of course switch to a way faster eMMC storage. Or switch
to an Intel Core M with SSD.
And of course put in fast charging like on the Lumia 2520.
