Surface Go 2 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Surface Go 2 is the successor to Microsoft's popular tablet, but are the minor upgrades enough to help chapllenge Apple's iPad?

Slimmer bezels result in a more stylish design;Bright and colourful display;Good battery life ;Superb microphones and webcam

Entry-level model has poor performance;Windows 10 S mode has lots of restrictions ;Not a very touchscreen-friendly UI;Type Cover is expensive and can’t replace keyboard

Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: A portable little Windows package

 

With more screen real-estate than the original, is the portable, affordable Windows 2-in-1 device better than ever? Check our our review

Smaller bezels than original model ; Great (optional) Type Cover keyboard makes this a mini laptop alternative ; Battery life solid for streaming

Accessories up the price a lot ; Overall battery life not the very best going ; Windows 10 S Mode has its limitations ; Only one USB-C port

A nip and tuck of the original model with more screen real-estate. Although it's not super-powerful, it is super-portable and delivers as much as it ought to from a stylish little package. A great iPad Pro or Chromebook contender in the Windows space.

Microsoft Surface Go 2 review

 

As a budget device, the Surface Go 2 is one of the most interesting releases from Microsoft in a while. Can it continue the legacy of its predecessor?

Premium design Affordable Can run full Windows 10 Very good battery life

No Touch Cover or stylus included Base model's specs are weak Windows Store still too bare

The Microsoft Surface Go 2 is an excellent affordable Windows 10 tablet that features a premium design found in the company's more expensive devices. It offers a slight bump in performance over the original, but it is still rather underpowered –...

Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: Tiny but not very mighty

 

A gorgeous machine and an improvement on the original but it still isn't powerful enough

High quality webcam ; Surprisingly usable keyboard ; Excellent screen

Not fast enough

If that’s what you’re looking for, the Microsoft Surface Go 2 will do a sterling job albeit at a rather high price; those hunting for the maximum value, however, will be better off with a proper laptop like the Honor MagicBook 14 or a Google Pixelbook Go.

Microsoft Surface Go 2

 

Microsoft's cheapest 2-in-1 offers excellent value for money on paper, but you'll need to spend much more than £399 to get the most out of it

Microsoft Surface Go 2 release date: Everything you need to know

 

A new report sheds a bit of light on Microsoft's new budget tablet – here's what we know

The only other take-away from the report published by Petri is that this will not be a significant product overhaul. The Surface Go 2 will supposedly retain the same core design choices and form factor of its predecessor. That’s a shame, but we’ll take...

Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: Same size, bigger ambition | IT PRO

Microsoft Surface Go 2 Review: One Small Step

 

The Surface Go 2 excels at portability at a time when there's nowhere to go.

Excellent build quality and design ; Long battery life ; Bright and colorful display ; LTE option available at launch

Pricey after affordable base model ; Type Cover not included ; Low performance for the price

The Surface Go 2 has a bigger screen, longer battery life and better performance than its predecessor, though you need to prepare to exit budget territory to get one of the better configurations.

Microsoft Surface Go 2 review: The awkward teenager

 

The Surface Go 2 makes marginal steps toward being a true iPad competitor, but is it enough to grow out of its awkward teenager phase? Sadly, the answer is no.

Beautiful, bright screen ; Light yet sturdy ; Runs a full version of Windows 10 ; Intel Core m3 offers solid performance

Too expensive ; Tablet usage is still rough ; Battery life is lacking

Surface Go 2 review: Microsoft's tiny PC is only a tiny bit better

 

The Surface Go 2 offers some slight improvements over the original: A larger screen and a faster CPU option. But the $400 model isn't much different, and all of the upgrades and accessories add up quickly.

Slim and sturdy design ; Versatile as a tablet and laptop ; Great 10.5-inch screen

Faster hardware costs a lot more ; No real improvements to the $400 model ; No bundled keyboard ; Every accessory is extra
