Top Ten Reasons Why Microsoft Surface Sucks

The commercial said it was better than a laptop. Well... ITS NOT! I have one of these myself. But I thought to myself' how is this any better than a laptop? ".

The Top Ten

1 You can't download anything from the web

This thing doesn't even let you download ANYTHING. From the web. It just said "this app can't run on your PC". If this thing was meant to imitate a laptop, why doesn't it let you download stuff? On a laptop, you can download anything. But on the "surface", it only lets you download things from the windows store. And the windows store only has 18 of what you can download on a real computer.

In order to download stuff, you would need to pay money. Although, for a limited time, its free. That's pretty much there way of making you want to buy. Basically, they are showing us how bad windows 10 S is

I agree o have to resort to the crappy bootleg apps on the store

This is happened on Windows 10 S from Surface Laptop - wenkernboys01

2 The keyboard stops working

Same! I have to use a Bluetooth keyboard in order to type!

I have keyboard driver errors out of the box

Some times yes is stop

This happens all the time
and the official support is not enough
i check out all the suggested solutions on the microsoft website
all fail and now I dunno what to do

3 It's a slow computer. Even if it's brand new

This tablet gets really slow on the internet! Especially around flash player.

Super slow!

4 The Widows store sucks

Like I said. The windows store doesn't have everything. Why is the app store better? In the app store, I found cool stuff like, Minecraft pocket edition, sonic dash, roblox, and console games. But in the windows store, I found only two good games. "GT racing 2", and "Asphalt 8 airborne". Every other game sucks. Plus, the app store has both of those games. Score: Windows-0 Apple-1

No YouTube, no nothing, sucks!

Yeah, the widows suck

Hate this POC wish I'd bought another Mac

5 Windows 10 is horrible

Wrong its way better than apple

This thing does not do what I tell it to do.
all it does is try to sell me stuff and I can't block it.
I'm paying for this bandwidth and I get to decide what is displayed and not Microsoft or anyone else.
This is called theft of service in legal circles.

6 It's overpriced

$4.99? Are you serious? That's way too expensive! That cost more than an Xbox one! And the final price could become $1,000! Good luck selling a five hundred dollar tablet, Microsoft!

7 Surface is a stupid name

The surface thing isn't the problem. It's the pro thing that I don't get

Surface? Really? They must have been drunk when they came up with this name!

I totally agree

8 Doesn't charge

My battery died. MS replaced with a refurbished device with a dead battery. It's taken over a month to get a replacement. MS surface Customer Service SUCKS.

It BARELY CHARGES! My Surface 3 was at 6 percent. I charged it for a bit and it was at 15 percent! The battery life is really like 6/7 hours!

9 The screen goes black

Every few weeks or so, this thing is gonna have an update. And the update makes the screen stop working. It turns on, but it just stays black. Once its like that, its stuck like that for the rest of the day.

Yep. Then your warranty runs out and you are SOL.

10 You are forced to use Internet Explorer & Bing

They released a broken product the was Edge, and developers are forced to support it. Shame on these jokers!

And Microsoft Edge, which sucks.

The Newcomers

? N-trig was a bad decision.

The new pen is buggy as hell on surface pro 2017 and Surface book 2. When the pen touches the screen it either jumps from it's initial off-position to the tip of the pen or sometimes it doesn't which makes drawing on this a chore. Could reproduce this bug on any showcase devices in electronics stores.
There are threads with hundreds of replies in the Microsoft forum.

Good job changing from a Digitizer brand which actually knows what they are doing like Wacom (except maybe drivers, Wacom sucks at that) to some brand that will probably never mature or just when already a lot of people actually spent money on this BS (like N-Trig).

If you use an old or an alternative pen like the bamboo ink, drawing is laggy. The Bamboo ink works better even on a Lenovo device (zero lag).
Been using this for

The Contenders

11 It doesn't have a start button!

The desktop doesn't have that start button that we have been using since the beginning of internet!

12 Windows 8 sucks with the mouse on a desktop PC

This is one big reason to hate the "surface". Navigating the Windows 8 system with a mouse is frustrating, and there is horizontal scrolling everywhere. Closing an app itself is pisses me off; you need to drag down the damn mouse from the top of the app window. I took me forever just to close it! It's so hard! This is much, much easier for a touch-screen device! But these problems just don't go with desktop users.

13 Get used to apps crashing multiple times within a small span of time.

...It literally crashes every 1-3 minutes... my first surface didn't do this...this is the top of the line brand new one! Sooo frustrating

14 The QA/QC is non-existent

You got your device, it has an issue, you sent it back, and they won't fix it! They will just try to ship that turd out that prey that the customer won't find out!

Brand new with defective screen and ship back refurbished one with the scratch on it.
Poor service and change my mind of purchasing Surface Studio

15 How about voice command? Not a keyboard!
16 Windows Store apps often crash

Whenever I try to play a game I got from the Windows Store, it crashes right when I start the app!

17 Few 3rd party apps
18 Last-gen devices lose support when the development of the next one is announced
19 Shuts off every time

I don't if its just me but every time I even close it for a minute it goes black and It takes ages just to start

20 The tablet is huge

Isn't this supposed to be portable? This thing is giant as heck!
