> In reply to hahhaha @ 2012-11-17 08:59 from 6pJt - click to readIce Cream Sandwich was my last straw. My Galaxy S2's battery went from 6/7 hours to 4. On top of that my hope screen kept resetting every few weeks and my app icons moved themselves around at random times. My phone would restart randomly, shut off randomly and apps crashed far too frequently

2. Resolution isn't everything, Surface's display has deeper colour and runs a lot smoother.
3. This is a matter of preference, I'm happy someone finally made a tablet I can run video on without black bars.
4. Yes, this is true and somewhere the Surface falls down for most people.
5. Having a good camera on a tablet is a joke and promotes idiots using it like they would a phone camera or camera in public resulting in a lot of pissed off people who can't see beyond it at a gig or football match
6. Could you please link me to the benchmark tests? Having trouble finding them

iPad 3or4 is much better than surface:
1.surface dose not have 3g or lte network
2.display ress on iPad is much higher than surface 264PPI vs 148PPI
3.screen on surface is wrong (16:9) because this is tablet pc not laptop screen or TV
4.iOS has lots of apps
5.rear camera on iPad 5-MP
6.CPU: A5X specially A6X with a custom apple core (swift) is faster than tegra 3 based on cortex-A9

i don't like the kickstand. its a movable part that i think is prone to breakage.

Why cann't Microsoft produce a surface tablet with an intel atom x86 processor in it as recent android phones with intel atom x86 procesor.
so that it can run most of the .exe files in the market.

I got my Surface tablet last Wednesday and, I must say, I am very impressed. Compared to my dad's iPad 3 there's no contest, Surface wins all around. The screen resolution is not as high, no, but the colours are more vibrant and eye catching. The UI is intuitive and easy to use, the swipe gestures work perfectly. The split screen view, which I previously scoffed at, actually has come in handy. I can have conversations with my friends on facebook while watching netflix without having to switch back and forth between apps constantly. The camera works for what it is and, unlike a lot of, in my opinion, idiotic and ignorant iPad users, I won't be trying to use it to block other's views to take photos at the Olympics. I only had problems with one aspect of my device, removing an app shortcut from the home screen. I was trying to do it the same way I used to with windows phone, but to no avail. You have to swipe down on the tile you wish to resize or remove.

So, I can honestly say, this is a very nice tablet, and worthy to be up there with the best.

> In reply to DDub @ 2012-11-02 00:02 from mqvH - click to readI agree, most trolls fail to understand the reasoning behind the Surface RT. Microsoft have done a great job explaining the positioning for each product if people care to go out of their way to read the data. If one needs to run .exe then spend the extra & buy the Pro version or a Windows 8 Pro notebook. Alternatively go into a dark room and play with their iPAD until the feel good about themselves. Personally I'm more interested in productivity and will purchase Windows 8 devices that best serves my needs for both business and personal use.
