It's physically beautiful. It's sleek, thin, lightweight. The glass feels great and the back looks amazing. Probably the best looking Microsoft product I've seen.
I was very happy to be able to get a very small tablet that ran a real operating system. iPads and Android tablets just don't cut it sometimes when you need to run real desktop software. If you want a small tablet that runs full Windows, this one does it.
Windows 11 looks amazing. I'm mostly a Mac guy having left Windows after MS messed around with the start button and tiles with Windows 8. I had tried to come back a couple times here and there, but 8 and 10 seemed so dated after having switched to Mac. Windows 11 changes that for me and makes me open to coming back to Windows. It's beautiful and modern. They've removed a lot of the old Control Panel options that came from XP a long time ago, so that's good. Some are still there I discovered, but for the most part settings is greatly improved.... Windows 11 is great, but not great enough to make this tablet a keeper.
Really, Microsoft? A goofy proprietary charger? Not sure if the USB-C port just doesn't take a charge or if mine is defective, but I couldn't get a charge with my MacBook Pro USB-C charger/cable or Samsung S21 Ultra charger. Instead, mine only charges with MS's proprietary charger which means now I'm hauling around yet another charger and cable wherever I go instead of just one USB-C charger for all devices.
I could almost live with that inconvenience, but what I can't live with is the speed. I understand that there are other Surfaces that have better/faster specs, but they are also bigger. I wanted a small and capable Windows tablet, but alas this one is only small.
This may be an unfair comparison, so take this with a grain of salt, but I happened to get a new iPad Mini 6 the same day. I unboxed and fired up both at the same time and was up and running on the iPad in a quarter of the time even with Apple's annoying Apple ID Fort-Knox password verifications. The Surface was slow out of the gate. At first I thought the touch screen didn't work because when prompted for the usual username stuff, the keyboard would not appear..... oh wait, it did.... just 2-3 seconds AFTER taping on the text box.
I thought maybe I was doing something wrong since I've never used Windows tablet before, but eventually it became apparent that the tablet was so extremely slow that even typing text would have serious lag.
Then there's the usual and annoying Windows updates. Oh well, just part of the ecosystem, but geez! It took 45 minutes from unboxing to being able to even check out the desktop.
I downloaded some desktop stock brokerage programs and they took forever to open. So slow. These are super resource heavy programs like Photoshop. They are fairly simple, yet they were just too slow to be usable for quick stock market trading.
So beautiful but just too slow for me. The touchscreen seems finicky and programs take forever to load and use. If MS comes out with a supped up version of this, I would definitely take another look. But if this is as fast as it can run, it's a hard pass. I'd hate to see the tablets with lesser processors.
Buy if speed isn't a concern. Pass if you value your time.
The Surface Go 2 (8 ram, 128 ssd, m3 processor) was one of the best computing devices I’ve ever owned. However, because of not traveling due to COVID, I decide to give it away to a family member who needed a tablet. When the SG3 came out, I was excited to test the $629 models. Before sharing my thoughts, I’d like to note who should probably not get a SG3. The SG3 is not for someone who:
1. does not need Windows on a small portable computer-tablet
2. does not plan on traveling with the SG3
3. just want to watch Netflix, browse the internet, and check your email. Traditional tablets
(iPads, Android) that run smartphone apps can do all of these activities.
It should also be mentioned that the $399 SG3 is for kids and pre-teens (just watch Microsoft’s marketing videos). For this reason, anyone who complains about the amount of RAM, store, and/or processor power on the $399 SG3 has not bothered to do their research and their insights should not be taken seriously. No one buys a bicycle and expects it to function like a motorcycle. Also, the only difference between the $629 SG3 and the $549 SG3 is the processor. So most of what is stated below concerning hardware should also apply to the $549 SG3.
CPU is more than fast enough. The single-core average Geekbench 5.4 score is 986 (multi-core scores are for things like video editing, photo editing, 3D modeling, etc.; things the SG3 was not designed to do). To put that into perspective, the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2 with i5-8250U processors also have single-core Geekbench 5.4 scores in the high 900s. Both are these devices are currently being sold for a little under $1,000. It should also be noted that the 2020 SPX has a single-core Geekbench 5.4 scores just above 800. For these reasons, anyone who says the $629 SG3 is underpowered does not know what they are talking about.
Battery life is outstanding. I get 9-10 hours of continuous YouTube viewing (40% screen brightness, battery saver and wifi on, dark mode on, all apps closed in the background). It should be noted that the battery life on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 I briefly owned with 12-13 hours (60 hz refresh rate).
The screen is bright enough at over 400 nits. The screen’s major upside is that in a completely dark room you can lower screen brightness to zero (saving battery life) and still watch YouTube videos without any problem.
Build quality is outstanding just like all Surface devices. The device is well-built and incredibility light. Kickstand stand is sturdy, extremely flexible, and rounded edges do not dig into your leg. Windows Hello is fast and works every time. No fan, so no fan noise. Love surface connect port because the magnet on charger is very strong, but detaches easily if pulled off. Speakers are loud and clear but could use a bit more bass and a bit less terrible.
Processor. There is only about a 12% increase in power from the $629 SG3 over the $549 SG3 and m3 SG2. As such, there is no compelling reason to buy the $629 over the $549 or upgrade from the m3 SG2. However, if you own a SG2 with a Pentium processor, upgrading to the $629 or $549 SG3 will yield about 50% more processing power (per Windows Central).
Price. If you add the keyboard and pen, the cost of the $629 SG3 increases anywhere from around $100 (open-box purchases) to over $200 (brand new purchases). This makes the final price $729 to $829. For that amount of money, you can get an open-box SP6 or SP7 with keyboard (bundle purchase).
Screen size. At 10.5 inches, the SG3's screen is just too small to use as a main work computing device for most people.
Ports. No USB-A port means dongle life.
The $629 SG3 is an outstanding computer-tablet. There is nothing on the market as small, light-weight, portable, powerful, or versatile. iPads and Samsung Galaxy tablets are not computers and only run between 2 to 3 million smartphone apps. SG3 runs 35 million Windows applications. SP and SPX are not as light-weight or small. Also, the SPX is less powerful, and most people doing basic office or school work will not need SP’s i5 or i7 processor.
That said, there is really no advantage in terms of build-quality or processing power in purchasing the $629 SG3 over the $549 SG3 or m3 SG2. Also, if you need a main computer the $629 SG3’s screen is too small and it won’t be able to handle more powerful programs as easily as a computer-tablet with a i5 or i7 process. For these reasons, the $629 SG3 is a great device, but a very poor value.
I have however noticed a bit of a software issue that I am sure will get patched eventually. The Surface seems to struggle with the facial recognition in dimly lit areas. The camera and recognition sensors will not turn off, even when you use the backup pin to get access. I found that I can just go to the camera app to force the facial recognition to stop.
Overall though, I am really enjoying using the Surface Go 3 though, and the [not included] Surface Go Keyboard works amazingly well with it. The typing is smooth like butter, the keys are backlit, and the whole computer experience just seems pretty fluid. Definitely recommend this tablet to anyone looking to quickly get every day tasking completed!
Top reviews from other countries
I always been a fan of the surface go. I always used the surface go 1 (8gb ram 128gb ssd) on the couch or on the go for meeting, game streaming (gfn, xbox, moonlight, parsec, and stadia, but stadia is complete garbage on everything, android to linux to windows to android TV). So I am a bit sold but here the review.
The upgrade to the surface go 3 is worth it coming from the surface go 1. You can use multiple tab with less struggling. This laptop shouldn't be used like a main computer, but for light browsing, light productivity office work, meeting, LIGHT gaming (Carrion, dead , media consumption, reading, movie/game streaming, it's great.
Windows 11 is not too bad, yet. I still prefer windows 10, but windows 11 will keep be upgraded. Biggest downside is the start menu, that microsoft will not have the choice to add the option to go to a standard start menu over time (the more people will get windows 11 the number of complaint will increase. It's not made in an efficient way - too much like a smartphone, dumb down for everyone can use it. If you always just press the window key and type the program you want to use, you will note see a difference in your day to day. Haven't encounter any issue with compatibility (YET). Other than that, they got rid of the issue of windows 10 with the old win7 interface options and win10 options. The interface is more standard than the gap we had between having the same options available on the 2 different "interface" and some options only in win7 old menu. Is it worth to upgrade your current computer to win11? NO
Battery life, well it's simple, every time a company advertise the time, just do this simple calcul. time advertise X 60% = real life condition/day night using. It's not bad, but you will never get 10hours, even if you disable bluetooth and wifi. You could get 10hours if you put the minimum brightness. Minimum brightness = computer is usable in pitch black. I can get around 6 to 7 hours at 50-60% with a mix of streaming game/multiple tab browsing/meeting. USE EDGE ON BATTERY!!!!! this will make a good difference. Use firefox while plugged in. The more addons you use in your browser, the slower and more battery it's going to use. Maybe you can squeeze more if you stay in Window S mode.... but unless you are someone who knows nothing about computer (like my mom or dad) get out of S mode. You can recharge in usb-c with a 24watt battery pack (would suggest going to 45w) (BIG BIG ++++++ for a small windows PC)
Yes usb-c charging is working nicely, like it always did. I do like the surface charger, but would prefer have 2 usb-c instead of a proprietary connector dedicated to only charging.
Resolution is good, more standard now even if it's a 3:2 (1920x1280 vs 1800x1200). If you stream game, try to use a 16:10 resolution to loose less screen real estate. Screen is good, non HDR but good. Direct sunlight is a no-go.
Here is the real battle in today computer market : planed obsolescence. I really liked my surface go 1, but the problem REPARABILITY. I would still use my surface go 1 today and would never bought the go 3, even if the surface go 3 is more powerful. My surface go 1 had 20% battery wear, and try to replace the battery in a surface IS GARBAGE. REPARABILITY RATING : 0/10. every single product can't be repair now and this is GARBAGE. You can pay microsoft to change the battery, at an atrocious price. You can find a guide on how to do it yourself, but just reading the guides, you will realize quickly you are going to break it. Replacement battery are around 50$. Break the screen, and your tablet is now not worth the investment anymore. RIGHT TO REPAIR, IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. I was thinking about just installing linux on the surface go 1 for the speed issue but the real issue I had WAS THE BATTERY. The real thing that should ALWAYS BE EASILY USER REPLACEABLE ON EVERYTHING. The only thing that really suffer from wear without being able to do much. There is now on the surface, in the surface application something to prolong your battery wear. I will see how it handle this. On paper, it's a good idea. Let see how it's implemented and if it makes any difference.
I choose to sell my razer blade stealth and surface go to only use the surface go 3 as my SECOND COMPUTER. If you need an extremely portable window laptop for light productivity, surface go 3 is a good choice. If you need something powerful but extremely portable, like I do, use Parsec to connect to your desktop. If you want a MAIN computer that is portable and offer great performance, don't buy a surface go. This is a 10inch, full window tablet. There is a compromise on the performance, but the I3 is doing a good job. 4gb of ram is not enough today for window PC, and emmc memory is not worth it for Windows (cheapest window go)
Accessories, I use the old pen, keyboard and mouse from the surface go 1. But realize you will need to buy at least the keyboard, which increase the price.
I am happy with the surface go 3 for what I need. If you are not bound to Windows (or x86)/only stream or read, get an android tablet. Don't forget to remove all the tracking stuff you CAN remove (now nicely name analytic) sometimes analytic is good, for bug report, but the vast majority of analytic is not for that.
If you have a company that is FOR THE RIGHT TO REPAIR, and is not just doing virtue signaling, POST IT HERE I WILL TAKE ANY SUGGESTION for x86/x64 under 11inch.
Don't mention anything about apple please....
Save the planet, let us fix our gadgets. If I had to review only the reparability, it would have 0 stars, like everything else we buy today. In 2 years we won't be able to change the battery of our TV. (well if they put some solar panel on it it would be good, but they won't)
***feel weird about saving the planet and buying on amazon isn't? well the guy who put the preorder for the surface go 3 on amazon made a mistake on the price...
