    First, this is for the actual Hi10X tablet. Which is a windows tablet, which by itself is both a big plus when it comes to functionality/openness/backwards compatibility and a big negative when it comes to resource utilization.Mostly I purchased this device to replace a 7″ dell Venue 8 pro 5855 (4G ram/128G storage/1080p) I use mostly for media consumption, and once in a while some light application use (ssh, email, etc). In that regard is a definite upgrade. Its got a nice screen, plenty of ram, and the storage is more than adequate. I wanted a smaller lighter x86/windows tablet, and this is probably the best device in that class, now that it is impossible to buy a 7″ x86 tablet that isn’t using ~5 year old processor design. I find the surfaces and most of the competitive machines too bulky to hold up in bed or while on an airplane. Which is why you always see them on the tray tables instead of peoples laps like you see with phones, kindles, etc.That said, this device isn’t going to win any speed awards. Once you turn off windows idiotic virus scanning and telemetry/spying, install a firewall to block it from downloading updates without permission/etc its completely usable for most non-gaming tasks. Given, its probably more compute power than most people had in their win7 machines 10 years ago, one can only blame MS for the lag that is sometimes seen. OTOH, its just a couple watts full bore, so about a 20-30x reduction in power utilization from that 10 year old machine.The battery life situation is frustrating. This tablet is super low power, but that doesn’t mean it should come with a phone battery (which is basically what it has). As it stands, the battery life ranges from 12 hours to about an hour depending on what your doing. Reading a book, 12+ hours, watching netflix 10 hours, light web surfing 6-7 hours, watching a video in firefox that doesn’t have hardware decoding, 4 hours. Compiling code, about an hour (not many laptops survive for long when compiling code two hours is a lot). If this were running android it would be a 12+ hour device, but windows is all to happy to let random background tasks eat battery, or run software that doesn’t let the core sleep between user interactions/etc. Doubling the battery capacity would have made this tablet a no-compromises device. As it is, it battery life is similar to most < $900 laptops. Although on the battery charging, I wish it were possible to charge from a random 5V USB port. The brick it comes with says 12V output, which AFAIK isn't one of the standard USB PD voltages, which explains why none of my other chargers works with the device.Yes, its got enough ports for most uses without having to have a pile of dongles. I did pick up the keyboard for it after owning it for a few days. That is a fine purchase as well, although given how large/heavy it is, they should have put a massive battery in the keyboard. It adds a couple full size USB-A ports which are very useful.In the end 5+ stars, the only shortcoming is really the battery life, and that is fine as long as one doesn't try to run heavy applications. The weight form factor, and price more than make up for the battery life gripe. Most of the rest of the gripes are windows related (minimum back light setting, etc). That is the price of avoiding the apple walled garden that makes it painful to just copy a movie file to the device, or the garbage ware of android that won't get updates in a few months and a long list of functional shortcomings.BTW: Extra star for not dumbing down the BIOS options, its crazy complete.

    I have tried several 2-in-1 tablets with Linux — this one works out of the box. The touch screen and camera drivers are in the kernel 5.3.0The keyboard is solid. The magnetic latching of tablet and keyboard works well.The USB-C charging port only works with the charger provided and doesn’t work with general purpose adaptive USB-C chargers nor does it work with a pass-though port expansion device for charging.Later: I have determined that the USB-C charging port needs 12V so a standard 5V/9V/15V/20V charger won’t work. You have to find a charger with 5V/9V/12V/15V/20V adaptable options but even these don’t seem to work.As one should expect the N4100 CPU is OK as is the UHD 600 GPU but neither is at all powerful.If you place this Bash script in your startup applications it will orientate the touchscreen correctly.#!/bin/bash# This Bash Script sets the touch screen orientation############################################################################### first find the touchscreen xinput idtouchscreen=$(xinput list | grep “Goodix” | grep “pointer”)touch_id=${touchscreen:50:2}## set the rotated transform matrix for the touchscreenxinput set-prop ${touch_id} ‘Coordinate Transformation Matrix’ 0 1 0 -1 0 1 0 0 1#echo “touchscreen = ” ${touchscreen}echo “xinput set-prop ” ${touch_id} “Coordinate Transformation Matrix 0 1 0 -1 0 1 0 0 1 “echo “press key to exit”read anythingexit############################################################################

    First, I find the screen excellent – sharp, bright, good colors, and touch functions well.Updating went well – it now is running the 1909 update. Installing programs went smoothly.Bluetooth pairs well, and works across my living room without any glitches or “skips”. Battery life seems better than expected in such a small chassis – it looks like it will be 5 hours or better. Internet surfing works well, just seems a little slower – but had no issues with downloading, surfing web sites etc.The computer is fast enough for light multi-tasking, some games – chess, solitaire, and even some older games such as Fear, T-3 etc.Storage is a bit limited at 128gb, but I have installed a 256gb micro card, and am able to install large games on it to save main storage space.Using the Chuwi keyboard to transform this into a mini-laptop, was a failed attempt. The keyboard’s touch pad has it’s own idiosyncrasy’s that has made using this as a laptop near impossible. It would minimize windows randomly, and expand right notification bar, “zoom” when scrolling email or web pages randomly. The issue is, there is no actual touch pad driver – it is only seen as a “HID mouse”, so gestures are misinterpreted by Windows as keyboard “HotKey shortcuts”.Overall, this computer may be a good choice for students, business, or anyone wanting to use as a compact tablet, but cannot recommend to be used as a mini-laptop with the Chuwi keyboard. Have contacted Chuwi, and they had no answers except “maybe I would get used to it”. Not working for me, will return.

    EDITED.I will be selling my ipad pro 12.9. what’s to say, gorgeous screen, very very fast, pen is great, beautiful design, expanded storage , 256 version has 8gb of ram, speakers sound much better than ipad.My use is music, lots of sketching in concepts app, reddit, basic surfing.Been using it for a while now no real complaints. Will update if that changes.Edit: month ish in- daily use for writing, youtube etc.. has been fantastic!! My only complaint is that some android apps have not caught up to the power of it. Regardless. Concepts app is fantastic, google keep etc.. still very much into it. WRITING is better on this tablet over the ipad. the pen has a rubber tip that makes a massive difference. I use the tab for 80% drawing/notes. I know the CPU is a bit slower than the ipad pro but it is very much quicker over the ipad pro in everyday tasks.

    I’ve had Android tablets since Honeycomb and back then (2011), it was a very marginal experience at best. Things are so much better these days and Samsung is really doing a great job at continuing to improve the experience.This tablet is peppy and premium, with a great screen and terrific 4-speaker audio system. I also bought the Samsung keyboard/touchpad cover and I HIGHLY recommend anyone to do the same. Sure, there are plenty of less expensive keyboard cases out there, but this one is just perfect and integrates so fluidly.My primary use case is to have something small and lightweight to take to business meetings, where I can connect an HDMI dongle to the conference room TV/projector, turn on DeX, and basically have a fully functional laptop/desktop mode (as shown in review photo). I use TeamViewer to remote connect to my primary work computer (with all of the horsepower, but waaaay too heavy/cumbersome to lug around) when I need to demo some software that is still in development.Side note about TeamViewer if you’re using the touchpad built into the Samsung keyboard cover: The touchpad supports a full press/click (beyond a finger tap). When you’re remoting to another computer, you need to perform the full click press to send a left click to the remote PC. However, this was an unexpected surprise as this means I can easily click and drag!Outside of my specific usage, this tablet is just great and I cannot think of anything to complain about. Everything works as expected, the sound is superb as is the screen. The S Pen is very nice, though it’s not something I will use very much, it’s still nice to have – and with the Samsung case, it keeps it nicely secured and always charged.

    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.  Ok, first let me say I am an Android supporter for the better part of 20 years. At first I thought this was a glitch in the Art Program, Clip Studio Paint. But this happened on EVERY program. This is my 2nd attempt at purchasing this Tablet (S7+, 256GB Model) and I had a similar problem with dead space. Clip studio, Art Rage, Art Flow, Krita, AutoDesk Sketch and infinite Painter all have the exact same dead space in the exact same spot. I will be returning this model and ask for a full refund. Hopefully get an explanation as to why this has happened two times now. I am an artist so i have no other reason to use this tablet. Disappointed to say the least. 900 dollars for this.

    ***UPDATE***I just received the replacement tablet yesterday afternoon. I am very happy about how quickly and easily I was able to get a replacement. It came quickly and Amazon provided me with a shipping label so that I could ship the broken one right back with very little inconvenience. Other than the hiccup when the original stopped working I am thrilled with this product! I bought mine on Cyber Monday so the price I paid was INSANELY reasonable but the normal price is still a great value. It is sleek, attractive, and lightweight in addition to being very easy to use. If you are thinking about making a bit of an upgrade to a device with Android 10 already installed but you are on a tight budget then I would recommend this product.***ORIGINAL REVIEW*** The tablet stopped working. Amazon is sending a new one. Provided it works well I will update the review.

    The media could not be loaded.  The big question is can you ever own enough tablets? The answer is no. This is quickly become my favorite one to grab when I’m in the living room just trolling around on the Internet. I hate straining my eyes and looking at my small phone it’s easy to pick us up and place an order for food or play a video for my son. I am extremely impressed with the quality of it for the cost. The one way I always judge any electronics train is how black are the black pixels? I swear these are almost completely off like OLED. It is extremely dark! And that makes a picture look extremely crisp. Very happy with my purchase. The battery also lost a very very long time and I’ve been putting some time in.I hope this was helpful.

    Purchased this tablet, to see if it would the tablet that replaced my 3 year old Samsung 10 inch tablet. A little disheartened upon opening & setting up the tablet.Very sturdy tablet, smooth movement across screen. The audio quality is a bit on the treble side, going through settings and trying to adjust for more bass. Very limited on the sound control of this device.Rear of the device has a nice plastic casing with a brushed texture to it. Secondary screen shield on device, which made the screen to appear muted or hazy. Once removed the screen has much more clarity for a mid level tablet.Games seem to run smooth, though it’s hard to exit the games itself. This is an Android thing.ProsPricing if you’re looking for a mid level tabletPicture qualityBattery life is goodConsA little heavy for a tabletBasic level use for a tablet – no excessive app usage on tabletOverall this is a good quality, budget friendly tablet for general use!

    Your browser does not support HTML5 video.  It is a really great tablet with slick design and nice silver casing. It has a long battery life with pleasant screen quality. I would love to have a better screen touch quality though. But it is understandable with such great price.

    This laptop took me by surprise. It is very fast switching pages and surfing, which I’m not used too. The screen is big which makes everything so much easier to see. The graphics are high quality. It’s quite a change going from a slow working laptop to this fast paced laptop. I haven’t put it down since it arrived. I like that it came with it’s own cover for the back and you can switch your android phone over to the laptop. Battery lasts for 8 plus hours. I ecstatic with my purchase and my new laptop.

    I was very critical of the other Awow tablet I bought. It was a cheap 8″ that I felt was out performed by other tablets. Not so here. This 10.1″ Android tablet with keyboard performs very well with its Octo-core processor and 4GB of ram. It feels solid with a mostly metal case. It is well finished and feels good in my hands, no rough edges. The screen is very bright and detailed…I use mine frequently for streaming Prime Video, Netflix, HBO max, and it works on all of them at full HD resolution with no stutter. The included keyboard is also nice. The keys have good feel, and I like the fact that it directly connects to the tablet (to 5 pins on the bottom), so no Bluetooth issues. The included keyboard case is custom designed for this Awow (its model CreaPad 1009) It fits well, gives access to all the ports, and props the tablet up at an angle that is appropriate for typing. I particularly like that the Android 11 seems to be stock Android, with no bloatware and no google restrictions that I can see so far. It quickly synced with my other tablets and loaded my app library with no fuss. It is the nicest tablet I have seen for less than $200.There could always be improvements. The dual speakers on the bottom edge do not get very loud, so I use Bluetooth or the 3.5mm headphone jack most of the time. The screen has just under a 1/2″ black frame around the sides, which is average for this price tablet. It looks just like the 2nd photo which shows it in the keyboard case, but the current main photo shows a smaller frame than that I think. I will update when I have more experience with it, but I am very pleased with its quality and price so far.

  13. Mav

    This 10-inch screen is great, it’s as clear as you need it to be, very crispy and the colors are as vibrant as any other table I have previously used. The weight is good,it feels as though it’s extremely well made, and after testing it the performance I can say it’s fantastic, have done a great job by manufacturing a very affordable table but also enabling it to have high-end performance. In comparison to my iPad the response time for app loading, stream loading, etc. is non-existent, it performs just as well so considering the cost the best part of around 70% less it was worth the investment. Highly recommended!

    Samsung does not upgrade their Android… so after 1.5 years or so, your Android is outdated. And do you trust some third party website to flush your ROM and upgrade not know the security implication and also, whether you’d brick your tablet.Of course, 1.5 y years later, it is new opportunities for Samsung to sell some new machines, so they will follow the leadership, be proactive, be entrepreneur, and sell you a new device. And your old device and you? Who cares about you.

    I bought this tablet for use with digital art programs primarily, since I had seen it recommended for that purpose. However, the nature of the touch screen means that even the slightest bump from fingers, wrist, or any other part of your hand or arm means “paint” smears all over the working areas that must be undone/erased constantly. It took me 5 times longer to make simple line art with this tablet than it does my graphics tablet that must be connected to a computer to function (and I actually got this because I wanted a graphics tablet that didn’t require being plugged into a computer to use) . It irritates me most because this tablet comes with a trial of Clip Studio Paint, which is my preferred art program, so I felt this meant it was designed for art in mind, but using it for that purpose is horribly uncomfortable. The CSP included is also only a 6 month trial and you CANNOT use a key code for it that you’ve already paid for even when signed into your existing CSP account.I feel like the battery life is also poor. The tablet went from 100% to fully dead in less than a day, most of that being in standby mode and not in active use.I’m sort of stuck with it now, because it DOES work, just not well or for what I want it for. I can only receive a full refund if it has arrived nonfunctional, so I’ll do what I can to make the best of it, because this thing isn’t cheap, either. For that reason I thought it important to be very honest about my feelings on my review. If you’re looking for a tablet for art, I don’t recommend this at all! Just get the Wacom.

    I don’t like how I can’t just push the on button and it just turns on. I have to hold the button down for awhile before it turns on. That’s not a big deal though.The sound quality on it is excellent along with how clear the screen it.There is no issues of screens taking forever to load and I don’t feel as though it’s full of Samsung spamware or anything like that.

  19. HiddenLurker

    Purchased this tablet for all the value it provides – high specs, included case and keyboard.Having said that there are some minor quirks with this tablet – speakers aren’t very strong, leaving the tablet in the case connected to keyboard seems to drain battery, and the touchscreen has weak spots in the corners. Typing on the virtual keyboard can be annoying as well as taps somehow register as swipes (this messes up the input text). Aside from those quirks, I have been pleased with the performance of this tablet. It works well for media consumption, ebook/comic readings, web browsing, and games. I’ll have to see if I can calibrate the touchscreen or change virtual keyboard to see if it works better… It would be nice if there were alternative cases without the keyboard, but it’s nice that it comes with everything at the given price point and works pretty well.The tablet also comes with a screen protector pre-applied to the screen. Unfortunately, it was applied with some specs of dust under it, which bugs me a bit. Unfortunately, I have not come across after market screen protectors that would fit this tablet to replace it.Overall, this tablet set provides really good value, but has some quirks. It’d be nice if there were screen protectors and cases (without fixed keyboard) available for purchase, but given that this isn’t a mainstream brand, I doubt there’ll be anything.

  20. William Z

    I bought it to try and see if it fits my need. The tablet offers fantastic value with keyboard included. I was able to reply emails and even code with Google colab on this tablet. However, the batter life is at around 6hr which is subpar. And the keyboard trackpad scroll feels reversed so I have to use mouse. Also you won’t get FHD when streaming Netflix and Amazon prime video. So you mighy want to increase your budget and opt for ipad if you stream videos a lot. But this table still offers amazing value at this price!

    I upgraded to the Surface Go 3 from a Samsung Galaxy Book 10.5″ that was unable to be upgraded to windows 11. I am really glad that I upgraded to the Surface Go 3, as it is super speedy, light-weight, and feels overall very modern from windows 11.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!

    I got the i3 8GB memory 128GB SSD Platinum version, which at the time of this review is the top of the line model sold on Amazon.THE GOODIt’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.THE BADReally, 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.CONCLUSIONSo 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.

    I used a couple of android tablets in the last, so far this is the most smoothest one, the apps switches very quickly and only took a short moment to restart. It is also smooth when watching HD movies.

  24. Mike in FL

    Solid tablet for the price. Got it under 180 shipped. I don’t think there is any other tablet that can touch these specs for that price AND ALSO COMES WITH A HEADPHONE JACK! Screen is pretty nice resolution but I don’t think it’s laminated. Boots up and runs pretty quick. 6Gb of Ram paired with a 8 core cpu works great with android 11. Nowhere near as fast as my one plus 7 pro but for what I paid I’m not complaining. Metal frame doesn’t feel cheap to hold. DRM level 3 so only standard definition on streaming sites. I know they advertise 4 SPEAKER MOMENTUM SOUND in the description but the speakers sound terrible and since there is 4 of them it sounds 4 times as bad. Get some headphones. Added a 128gb sd card for some extra storage. Stock android 11 experience. No bloatware! Probably why it runs as smooth as it does. Battery charges very slow but it does seem to hold a charge for awhile. I couldn’t find a case for this so I purchased a regular teclast m40 (non pro) case and cut two holes for the speakers on the bottom. Fit perfect now. I cant comment on the cellular connection yet but I doubt it will work with u.s. carriers based on what I’ve read so far. Happy with my purchase. It’s working great for me. Never heard of teclast so I hope it doesn’t give me trouble down the road.

    I chose this over iPad because I like Android better, especially you can transfer files to your computer either PC or Mac. That makes back up photos and files very easy, also I can easily transfer a lot of books to Kindle app through USB. At first the screen proportion felt a bit weird since it is not the usual screen proportion but a little taller, but then I found it not only looking very sleek but also make split screen very natural. For example I can have both Kindle book as well as audible open at same time, makes learning foreign languages much easier than before. The pencil is also very nice, I don’t have comparison on pencil cause it is the first one I have, but sketching with it is very easy. Also the price includes the pencil, not like iPad. On speed I have comparison, I have a Kindle tablet and loading videos from some apps take a very long time, with Samsun g sure Fe same video open very fast.A very nice feature is, you can link this tablet with your galaxy phone which I happen to use, once linked you can make phone calls from this tablet and you can turn on/off using phone data on tabet any time so you don’t need to pay for extra data line for your tablet. I was surprised they didn’t advertise this feature.Overall, five stars.

    I was really looking forward to using this tablet because of the specs, but when I was setting it up I found that certain apps were considered “incompatible with this device”. Interestingly, the Amazon Shopping app for Tablets was among these. Other apps loaded fine but then wouldn’t permit me to log in. I’m not sure if this was because the tablet operates with a modified version of Android, or some security thing I couldn’t identify. Either way, trying to configure it was more frustrating than I wanted to deal with so I returned it.

    Several reviews have claimed, without providing any evidence, that the SG3 is extremely slow. If you Google the single-core Geekbench scores you will that the $399, $549, and $629 SG3 are on par with an 8th Gen i5 processor, Surface Lap 2, SPX SQ1, and SPX SQ2 processors. Now for the actual review————————————————————————————————————————-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-tablet2. does not plan on traveling with the SG33. 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.PROS: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.CONSProcessor. 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.CONCLUSION.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.

    It is hard to tell and no reviews talk about the screen being laminated? It is not laminated yet all the pictures look like it is. This is a big deal to me and point one a deal breaker. The screen doesn’t get very bright and colors seem a bit dull, viewing angles are not good? Tft or worse display not ips. So in my opinion the screen is the biggest weakness and why I returned the device. Furthermore there is no widevine level 1 so Netflix is 480p sd because it is widevine level 3. The bezels on this thing are comical as they don’t look anything like the picture-they are huge!! It is also a really heavy tablet. On the plus side the Android version runs great and no bloat ware. The CPU and RAM are speedy. Performance is really very good. 3.5m headphones! Aluminum build and metal keys. Quad speakers sound pretty good with decent bass and on the sides of the device so in landscape your hands don’t cover the speakers. If they would have had a laminated screen and brighter I would have kept it but it is really bad.
