Microsoft Surface Pro 7 | VickyTechy Honest Review

After all, we hoped that the Surface Pro 7 would address all of the concerns that surfaced with its predecessor, the Surface Pro 6. Unfortunately, its replacement does not do much to put things back on track. A chance to get back on track had passed, but this update failed to deliver in a significant way.

Not that there haven’t been advancements made. In addition to the USB-C connector, the Surface Pro 7 has some new features. However, there isn’t much more to suggest this tablet beyond that, making it difficult to recommend unless you have an older version of the Surface Pro. There is no doubt that the newest Surface Pro 8 is superior if you can afford it.

Microsoft can still build great portables when it puts in the effort like it did with the Surface Laptop 4. It’s simply that the Surface Pro 7 falls short in this category. However, if you’re on a tight budget, you may be able to acquire a newer model for a reasonable price.

Design:

Microsoft has finally added a USB-C connector to the Surface Pro 7, but the rest of the design hasn’t altered at all. As before, it measures 292 x 201 x 8.5 millimetres and weighs around one and one-half pounds (770g). The tablet is still available in the same matte black and silver metal finishes.

The tablet still has a 12.3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 2,736 x 1,824 pixels (267 pixels per inch) and a 3:2 aspect ratio, though. Like the previous generation, this one is equally as bright, colourful, and sensitive to touch. HDR and increased colour gamut coverage might be added to this standard, although it hasn’t been updated in years. In addition, the bezels are too thick for a 2019 tablet at this price point.

It’s becoming evident that either Microsoft has hit its limitations with the original Surface Pro design, which is improbable, or the corporation is just no longer interested in customising the Surface Pro – save for the Pro X. The company’s planned dual-screen devices, which might be the future of Microsoft’s hardware design – if they succeed – seem to be Microsoft’s primary source of inspiration.

We finally have USB-C on the Surface Pro 7, but it’s on the USB 3.1 standard rather than Thunderbolt 3. With this new connection, you receive all the benefits of Thunderbolt 3 without the raw throughput. Considering how standard Thunderbolt 3 is among similar-priced devices, the Surface Pro 7’s lack is all the more conspicuous. Even though Apple didn’t include this feature in the iPad Pro, it did have it in the similarly-priced 13-inch MacBook Pro, for example.

It’s worth noting, though, that Microsoft has enhanced the device’s studio microphones for better accuracy when using Cortana with your voice. On the other hand, Microsoft has improved the Type Cover keyboard’s travel and the bounciness of its keys. This is a significant advance for those who have been using the Surface Pro for a long time, but it will take some time to get used to.

The Type Cover’s touchpad, on the other hand, remains intact and sensitive to the touch. We also like the new Alcantara fabric, which looks and feels more densely knit than previously, on this Type of Cover. Microsoft promises that this will make the cloth stain resistant.

All in all, this is the same Surface Pro you’ve been using for years, but now it has a USB-C connector instead of a DisplayPort connection for more flexibility. The original USB-A should also be replaced with a USB-C. I don’t know. Sorry, but the Surface Pro 7’s design and feel leave us unimpressed. A lot could have been done at the same price point to make this device better, but it wasn’t done.

Battery Life:

With that being said, we’re not experiencing the same battery life as we did with the previous generation Surface Pro and its 14nm Intel Core CPU. As a result of our local battery depletion test, the Surface Pro 7 lasted less than two hours less than its predecessor, the 2018 Pro 6.

Surface Pro 7 came in more than 45 minutes behind the PCMark 8 battery test, whereas the Pro 6 lasted four hours. When switching to an allegedly more efficient CPU design, you’d anticipate an improvement in battery life. However, the Core i5 and i7 versions of Intel’s CPUs have made considerable improvements in graphics performance, which may impact battery life.

Since Intel’s 14nm silicon has been available for half a decade, both hardware and software vendors have had the opportunity to optimise their products around it. As a result, the Surface Pro 7’s battery life may be poorer than the previous model’s since they have had less time to prepare and adapt to Intel 10nm CPUs.

You may be better off with one of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 6 devices if you’re looking for the best battery life. The Surface Pro 7’s battery life might be improved through software updates, which is doable and, we’d say, rather probable by the business.

Software and features:

The Surface Pro 7 isn’t as feature-packed as the previous generation of Surfaces, which has both advantages and disadvantages. The tablet’s most significant advantage is that it’s a straight Microsoft product, so there’s no bloatware to deal with.

Additionally, Windows Hello face recognition, which employs the tablet’s infrared camera adjacent to its webcam, is as fast and accurate as ever. Windows 10 has already been activated when we open the notepad from its Type Cover. Get ready for instantaneous power.

In terms of software and functionality, however, there is nothing to distinguish it. Windows 10 tablets running this version of the operating system will be able to run the app you’re looking for. That includes the Your Phone function, which lets you sync up an Android phone with Windows so that you can view and react to text messages, change calendar entries, or even make phone calls from your Windows PC.
