Surface Go 2 Review

The Microsoft Surface Go 2 is better than ever before! It offers longer battery life, a larger display for more content on one page at once. If you need to do some work from home or have been using your tablet as an idle hour companion this will be perfect news because now it’ll last much longer between charges so there’s no need that way too often.

The Surface Go 2 is a sleek and lightweight device that can transform into any of three different modes – tablet, laptop, or clamshell. The innovative design allows it to be used as an external screen when connected by plugging in headphones for sound output while simultaneously utilizing its internal keyboard/mice combo so you don’t need another peripheral.

With a 5MP resolution and 1080p video capture, this Tablet will provide you with high-quality footage even in poorly lit environments. The improved performance makes it the perfect choice for those who need to stay connected while working from home or in other remote locations where internet access may not always be reliable. The rear-mounted camera offers 8MP with 1080p video capabilities, perfect for catching all your best moments.

The 2-watt stereo speakers are able to produce a rich, room-filling sound that will make even your soft-spoken colleague on conference call understood.


When compared to the Surface Go 2’s 10.5-inch screen, which has a higher native resolution of 1,920 by 1,280 pixels and less density than that on an iPad (264ppi), it’s clear why this device would be more suited for reading purposes rather than graphics or video consumption.

Microsoft is on the fence about whether or not increasing your screen’s resolution will have an effect. They claim that if you look close enough, there won’t be any visible pixels at resolutions above 220ppi (pixels per inch). However, their own studies show otherwise, and even though they don’t know for sure what happens when someone looks through different levels of density; it’s possible some people may notice more strain placed upon them due to having greater amounts loaded onto each individual pixel instead.

  • Improved performance and speed
  • Larger display for a more immersive experience
  • Longer battery life for extended use without needing to recharge
  • Windows tablet that can handle most computing needs
  • No accessories include
  • Only work with specific components

The text on the Surface Go 2 appears grainy and low-resolution, while also being battery optimize. The iPad manages to include a higher resolution screen with excellent life expectancy too.

Signals from the Surface Go 2’s optional LTE modem can travel up to gigabit speeds. The Qualcomm Snapdragon X16-enabled device will accept either physical SIM cards or virtual eSIMs that are issued by your carrier of choice, allowing you access at high abstraction levels with guaranteed quality, unlike anything before it.

The tablet supports the latest Wi-Fi flavor, Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). It also features Bluetooth 5.0 for wireless connectivity options that are on top of its already impressive range.


The Surface Go 2 takes a bit longer to install apps than it does on most tablets with more powerful processors, including Microsoft’s own laptop line. In order for you can use third-party software from the Windows Store though you’ll have an option in settings that will allow this when installing new programs or updating old ones via “S Mode”.

The tablet’s day-to-day working experience is enjoyable and free of sluggishness. The fact that it lacks a cooling fan means you can enjoy your work without hearing annoying noises coming from other laptops, which are common when they’re under heavy load too. While using the Surface Go 2, we caught that it would sometimes lag when switching between two already running apps.

This means that if you want to get the most out of your Surface Go 2, make sure it has a processor with at least 4 cores and 8 threads. The Pentium Gold chip in this model is slower than its 7th Generation counterpart so we recommend sticking with either an older “Amber Lake-Y” based CPU (such as what’s found on base models) or one newer than them both: Intel Core i5—or even better yet Apple A12 Bionic.

The Surface Go 2’s battery life is excellent for a compact tablet. When I used it on casual web browsing at home, the device had enough power to last through an entire day with 30% leftover.

Microsoft’s new Surface Go 2 may not be better than the iPad, but it trounces all other midrange Windows tablets and is an essential tool for working or learning from home. The small size makes it perfect to take with you on trips – whether their business trips were carrying bulky equipment would cause problems, family vacations wanting something lightweight that can still handle some rough handling (think: dropping), outdoor activities like camping which requires packing smartly so as much space isn’t taken up by the stuff we don’t use often.
