Surface Go 2
Microsoft

The Microsoft Surface Go 2 Was Launched 6 Days Ago. Microsoft Is Trying To Target The Budget Laptop Segment, And It Has Both, Strong Points And Compromises. Let’s Have A Look Over The Successor Of The Original Microsoft Surface Go.

Microsoft Surface Go 2 An Overview:

The Main Focus Here Is Portability. And Thus It Is Light Weight (Weight Is Around 550 Grams!), Comes With A Touchscreen Display Of 10.5 Inch, And You Have Two Options For Processors:

  • 8th Gen Intel® Core™ M3 Processor
  • Intel® Pentium® Gold Processor 4425Y

The Storage And Ram Options Are:4gb Or 8gb RAM, eMMC Drive: 64GB (Wi-Fi Variant), SSD 128GB (Wi-Fi Or LTE Variant) And 256GB (LTE).

So, It Is Offering An Underpowered Processor, Which Is Where Microsoft Is Compromising. But Then Another Highlight Features Are It Has A Front-Facing 5MP Camera And 8MP Rear Camera, Both Supporting 1080p Resolution. This Is Even Not Found In Some High-End Laptops Like The MacBook Pro, Which Has A 720p Front Facing Camera.

The Highlights And The Drawbacks:

Another Great Feature Is Windows Hello, Which Is Microsoft’s Take On The Face Recognition Technology. But Again, To Maintain The Price Tag, We Notice Another Compromise. The Backlit Keyboard Is An Accessory And Does Not Come With The Screen. Now This Means You Buy A Tablet First And Then Buy The Keyboard To Convert It Into A Laptop.

Microsoft Boasts About The Battery Life Of This Device. It Comes With A Great Battery Life Of Up to 10 Hours! But Wait, There’s Another Catch. The Device Runs On Windows 10s, Which Is Specially Designed By Microsoft For Better Battery Life, Performance, Security. But You Will Have To Only Use Apps Available Only On The Microsoft Store. And If You Try To Install Apps From Other Sources, You Will Need To Switch Out Of The S Mode, And You Have No Option To Return To The S Mode. This Creates Bit Of A Mess Right?

But Then It Comes With USB-C Ports, Headphone Jack, MicroSD Card Slots, Also LTE Variants. These Are Some Things Many Top End Laptops Do Not Provide. Thus, This Product Will Put You Into A Dilemma, If You Are Looking Into A Portable Laptop-Tablet Hybrid.

The Product Starts With A Price Tag Of 399$. The Keyboard Attachment, Surface Pen Will Cost You Extra, Since They Are Accessories And Don’t Come With The Product. You Can View The Official Page Here. So, Stay Connected With Us On KickGadget For The Best Of Tech News.
