Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Tablet Review


Microsoft is known for its software and quality computers. One of the most successful of its line of tablet devices is the Surface Pro. The release of the seventh generation of such devices has already been mastered. Let's talk about it in more detail.

Features and Design

The fifth and sixth Surface Pro reincarnations received more interesting software, which allowed them to slightly increase their performance. Even in the sixth version, a powerful battery is installed. These products have not undergone any global changes.

As for the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 tablet, many users believe that it is not at all different from the previous generation and does not even deserve a separate serial number.

Is it possible to find out only if you delve into its characteristics and fully analyze them.


The gadget runs on Windows 10. It is equipped with a 12.3-inch PixelSense display with a resolution of 2736 ? 1824 (267 ppi) and an aspect ratio of 3: 2. The basis of its hardware filling is one of three 10th generation Intel processors : Core i3-1005G1, Core i5-1035G4, Core i7-1065G7.

For the needs of RAM, LPDDR4 memory is used, which is currently considered top-end and is used only in expensive laptops and tablets, as well as some flagship smartphones. Here it can be 4, 8 or 16 GB. The internal storage of the device is of the SSD type. Its volume can be equal to 128, 256, 512 GB or 1 TB.

Surface Pro 7 has 5 and 8 megapixel front and rear cameras, respectively.

Login security is ensured using Windows Hello (face verification camera). For communication, the protocols Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 6 are used. The gadget received the following ports: 1 ? USB-C, 1 ? USB-A, 1 ? MicroSDXC, 3.5 mm keyboard and headphone jacks.

The autonomy of its work is 10.5 hours. The tablet is sold in black and platinum cases.

Many users note that the developers practically did not use their resources at all when creating this version of the laptop tablet. Many of its components had to undergo modernization. It is worth taking at least the frame of the screen. They have not undergone any changes, have remained wide, despite the latest frameless trends.

A small consolation is that in the depths of the frames there are a number of useful "chips". These include a camera, Windows Hello IR camera and two good stereo speakers.


In addition, the device is heavy. The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 weighs 770 grams, which is a lot in comparison, for example, with 453 grams for the iPad 2019. This does not contribute to the comfortable use of the tablet while working with it. The pluses of the product include the presence of high-quality coating. It is better than previous versions.

Keyboard, connections

The Surface Pro 7's keyboard is of excellent quality. Its layout meets all the highest modern requirements. The keys are comfortable and of optimal size. The move of each of them is fixed. Its depth is 1.3 mm.


The only drawback of the keyboard is the way it is fixed. I wish it were magnetically attached to the bottom of the display. It would also be nice to enlarge the touchpad.

An undoubted step forward is the manufacturer's decision to abandon the archaic Mini-DisplayPort in favor of USB-C. This has led to the fact that there are fewer supply cables. The modern port allows you to simultaneously provide: power supply, video content output and data transfer.

If you need to connect outdated accessories, then USB-A will come in handy. There is also a headphone jack (it is still awkwardly located) and a microSDXC port.

Performance and autonomy

The future owner of a laptop tablet can choose a complete set with one of three processors from the tech giant Intel. All of them belong to the tenth generation, which is a big plus compared to the previously used eighth generation chips.

The best option would be to purchase a device based on a quad-core Core i5-1035G4. Still, two cores are not enough now - there are many demanding applications and games, and four will be just right. This ensures there are no lags or lags, even when multitasking.


Those whose professional activities are related to the editing of high-definition video content should definitely take a closer look at the version based on a processor with eight cores. It is the most expensive in the line, but it also provides the highest performance.

For people who are professionally involved in photography, the Surface Pro 7 is hardly suitable. It's all about some of the nuances and inaccuracies of color reproduction.

During testing, the gadget showed autonomy, which almost corresponded to the manufacturer's declared 10.5 hours. However, during this process, the device was not heavily loaded. Therefore, we can safely say that at maximum load, it will be able to function on a single charge for about 8-9 hours. No more.

Grand Total

The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 tablet laptop is not a super-modern product. It uses a number of obviously outdated solutions. This primarily relates to design.


The undoubted advantage here is the platform based on advanced chipsets, which contributes to high performance. It is well suited for those who like to combine business with pleasure (tablet + keyboard).
