Reviews for the Microsoft Surface Go MHN-00003

87.3% Microsoft Surface Go (Pentium, 64GB eMMC) Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Microsoft's Surface Go is a much more affordable tablet than any other previous Surface device. However, it comes at a price: significantly reduced performance. Find out how Microsoft's entry-level tablet fares against its competition.

82% Microsoft Surface Go for work and play (Australian review)

Smaller than I expected at 245 mm x 175 mm x 8.3 mm x 522g (without type cover). A baby Surface. It uses the same mag-alloy chassis, has similar largish bezels, the characteristic stereo speakers etc.

Microsoft Surface Go: Best (And Worst) Business Features
Source: Business News Daily English
If you're buying devices for an all Microsoft company, the Microsoft Surface Go is a decent tablet option for staff members that want on-the-go portability, but don't need the robust processing power, larger size, or increased cost, of the Microsoft Surface Pro.

Surface Go in S-mode review: The tiny Windows 10 tablet that can do (almost) everything
Source: Our IT Department English
At the end of the day, Surface Go is worth the money. If you’re looking for a solid first tablet or computer or introduction to Surface, then this model of the Surface Go is the way to go. It performs just as good as a Surface Pro, but with the limits and security of S Mode and the benefits of USB C. The design and build are both excellent, and inking is just so natural. The keyboard and type cover might be extra costs, and initially uncomfortable, but it adds up in the long run for multi-tasking and getting work done. Surface Go is well worth the money, and I hope that you think so too.

The Surface Go is very close to an ideal budget tablet and mini laptop in one device, but short battery life holds it back.

Intel UHD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Amber Lake Y-series processors (5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with Update to 1000 MHz depending on the CPU Model. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
4415Y: Extremely efficient ULV-SoC (System-on-a-Chip) for tablets and fanless notebooks based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Includes two CPU cores clocked at 1.6 GHz (fixed, no Turbo Boost) with Hyper Threading support as well as a graphics adapter and is manufactured in a 14 nm process. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

The screen diagonal is used for small tablets.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.523 kg:

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


Microsoft smartphones and tablets have been tested since 2012. There are many reviews with average ratings. The reader's interest is quite given, but the market share is not big enough for the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers (as of 2016).

78.48%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
