Design, Weight & Screen Ratio of Surface Pro X vs. Surface Pro 7:
As Surface Pro X is the whole unique model of Microsoft, people are more crazy about it. The entire design concept of Surface Pro X is beyond the previous ordinary Surface product line. This Surface Pro X has more rounded corners and a narrower screen border. Surface Pro X comes with 3:4 aspect Ratio and 13-inch display size with resolution 2880×1920 pixels. While Surface Pro 7 has a 3:2 aspect ratio and a 12.3-inch display with 2736 x 1824 resolution. Better aspect ratio and large pixels make the visual experience better in Surface Pro X than Surface Pro 7.
Surface Pro X and Surface Pro 7 almost have the same weight, but according to Microsoft, Surface Pro X is the thinnest & lightest laptop so far. In addition, the back support of the Surface Pro X can be stretched to a larger angle. Users, especially those who need to draw pictures related to design, should have a better experience with the stylus.
From a personal experience point of view, in the computer mode with the keyboard, the two products use the same experience, but after being adjusted to the tablet mode, the Surface Pro X feels better in hand, and under the same weight, I will choose a larger screen, which is more comfortable for office or entertainment.
Specifications, Interface, Battery Performance & Pricing of Surface Pro X vs. Surface Pro 7:
A little more in-depth, from the technical point of view, we can compare Surface Pro X and Surface Pro 7. First of all, one of the biggest highlights of Surface Pro X is its SQ1 arm processor, which is co-developed by Qualcomm. It has custom SQ1 Adreno 685 GPU, and its arm-based chip increases its battery life up to 13 hours with fast charging option, while the battery life of Surface Pro 7 is 10.5 hours.
Both have facial recognition and Windows Hello. On the audio side, Surface Pro 7 has 1.6W stereo speakers with Dolby® Audio, while Surface Pro X has 2W stereo speakers with Dolby® Audio™ with dual far-field studio mics, which makes Surface Pro X a perfect laptop with an excellent sound system.
Another critical point is the interface. Microsoft heard the crowd’s voice this time and finally optimized the interface on both new products this time. Surface Pro 7 retains the USB-A interface previous generation devices are used and adds a USB-C interface with 3.5mm audio jack, while Surface Pro X-directly using the 2 USB-C interface.
One thing to note is Pro X-generation devices are not reserved with 3.5 mm headset jack. This means that users can only publicly broadcast or connect their Bluetooth headsets during audio and video entertainment.
In addition, the special keyboard that Surface Pro X is different from all other Surface Pro products this time must be talked about. Surface Pro 7 substantially has the same keyboard touch, but the most significant difference is that it saved more than a direct adaptation of a new generation of Surface stylus (Surface Slim Pen) function. Surface Pro 7 and its previous generations of products are based on the stylus can be directly adsorbed on the device design, which is convenient for daily routine, but not travel-friendly as it will drain the battery. The Surface Pro X special keyboard wireless charging can be saved directly in the case of a new generation of touch pen, stylus, and now you have to go no longer and buy a battery for it!
