The Surface 2 is a definite improvement over 2012's Surface RT. It's faster with a sharper screen, but it still suffers from a lack of apps.

Slightly thinner

The Surface 2 is only slightly thinner than its predecessor. So slight, in fact, that you probably won't even notice the difference.

Camera upgrades

The new cameras deliver sharp pics and video, and their low aperture allows them to capture a lot of detail even in low light. The 3.5-megapixel front-facing camera is the best front shooter on any tablet yet. It captures clear, colorful images with lots of detail.
