Tips and Advice for Using the Microsoft Surface

Microsoft Surface is a series of touch-screen-based personal digital devices and interactive high-tech whiteboards developed and manufactured by Microsoft, apart from the Microsoft Surface Duo, that runs on Android. The former series was launched in the market in late 2021, while the later was released in the market in the same year. These two versions are technologically similar, except for the fact that the later version includes a built-in projector and a Pen Point. The former also comes with a high-quality sound system along with an advanced battery and a powerful lithium ion battery. However, the only noticeable difference is its greater pricing, which is quite a turn-off for many users, considering that it lacks some features of its rival devices such as the iPhone and Blackberry. Hence, in order to get an idea of the differences between these two editions, we have listed some of the notable features that differentiate these two devices from one another.

Microsoft Surface


Firstly, the Apple iPhone has a large, full-screen display, whereas the Microsoft Surface has a dual-touch, pen-based screen. It may come as a surprise for many, but the former has a higher-quality screen, featuring improved LCD display, higher resolution and better contrast ratio. However, the display and the resolution may not be sufficient enough to deliver a great gaming experience.


One of the major differences between the Apple iPhone and the Surface RT is its multi-touch interface. Unlike the Surface, this device does not include a physical trackpad. Instead, the user has to use the trackpad's multi-touch capabilities to interact with the computer. This is quite inconvenient, as it makes using the Surface much more interesting, as you can simply tap on the screen to bring up additional options or to scroll through files. You can also pinch in order to zoom in and out.


Another major difference between these devices is the physical button layout. The Surface's button layout, while being similar to many modern smartphones, lacks the typical Windows key on the left hand side. Instead, the buttons are arranged in a vertical manner, with two of them located on the top right corner. While some people may find this difficult to understand at first, many others find this layout very convenient, especially when they need to hit multiple buttons quickly.


Microsoft has made many improvements to the Windows keyboard, but unfortunately it is still difficult to type on. However, many individuals are able to adjust how their fingers behave on the Surface, as the virtual keys on the keyboard do not respond in the same way as on other devices. This means that it is possible to type on the Surface just as well as you would on a standard keyboard. It is important to note, however, that there are many third party keyboards available for the Surface, such as the Logitech Type Keyboard, which will enable you to input text on the Microsoft Surface just as you would on a regular keyboard. These third-party keyboards often have specialized functionalities that are not present on the Surface, making them much more useful.


Microsoft has also designed the Surface so that users can access all their data from the lock screen itself. Rather than having to unlock the device and then go into the private user settings to access various options, such as viewing Word documents or PowerPoint presentations, the lock screen allows you to do everything in one fluid motion. This means that you will always be able to see what you have worked on, regardless of whether you are in the office or out of the house. This can really come in handy when you need to look up various instructions or make changes to a document.


One of the most common complaints about the Surface is that it is not as comfortable as many other tablet devices. The Surface has been designed to be slightly more awkward to hold, and as a result many users report being unable to comfortably type on the device. However, the problem does not seem to be related to the actual finger tracking on the keyboard itself, but to how tightly the stylus is worn. Many stylus devices for other tablet devices are made of very soft plastic, whereas the Microsoft Surface stylus is made out of extremely hard rubber.


In order to ensure that the stylus is comfortable to use for long periods of time, it is often recommended that users use a small amount of cushion before each time that they turn the stylus. This prevents the stylus from moving unnecessarily. Another option to consider is ensuring that the stylus is held in a steady grip. Many people find that putting pressure on the stylus will cause it to move, so ensuring that you hold it in a steady manner will help to keep it secure. Many stylus models also come with a built in rubber shield. It may be wise to try this shield before purchasing the stylus to ensure that it fits well and does not slip.
