I was thinking the review was kind of crazy and inconsistent. Then I read it.
Guys, he’s not exactly wrong with any of his criticism. The V is a fingerprint magnet due to the finish. It is heavy, and that can cause unexpected behaviour (kickstand digging more into your leg). The pen is not nearly as good, and there’s no argument there. The pen attachment on the side is weak, and I really really don’t understand any of the team’s arguments supporting this decision because it doesn’t make any sense.
Does that make sense to anyone here…?
I own a Surface Pro 4. I’ve owned an original Pro, Pro 4, and my household has another Pro 3 and 4. I can understand all of these criticisms from a Surface Pro owner because the Surface Pro is a great device.
The V has strengths, but the criticism (for the most part) is well-founded. Obviously I don’t have my V yet, but I think it is. Overdone, yes I think so. But much of it is well-founded, and reason for us to work on improving in the future.
