Eve V Aces Over Microsoft Surface Pro: Specs, Features Specified
Dubbed as the world’s first crowd-sourced PC, the Eve V is an impudent and modern endeavor to provide what the people want. Also, it appears the low-cost Surface Pro clone aces over the original 2-in-1 device.
Is Eve V successful?
Looking at a sophisticated level, the answer is a competent yes. Eve V seems to have hit the high points of the Surface Pro since it has the same tablet-based 2-in-1 form factor and an incorporated kickstand. Apart from that, the clone device is also armed with a first-class type cover with a full-sized keyboard and glass touchpad, and an active pen.
Eve V is improved compared with Microsoft device as it sports far more port expansion and USB-C charging. Also, the type cover is Bluetooth-based and can be utilized even detached from the tablet. The user can arrange the color of the backlighting behind the keys on the fly.
Nevertheless, the Eve V is significantly heavier than the Surface Pro. The materials, although satisfying, do not rich the quality level that Microsoft has achieved. This may be the reason behind why Eve V is substantially less expensive than Surface Pro.
Some parts of the savings come from the bundling of type cover and active pen with the device. Meanwhile, the other parts go to less powerful parts as it can have an Intel Core m3 chipset on the low-end. Nevertheless, it only utilizes lackluster Y-series parts for other models. But for those who wanted, they can have real U-series Core i5 or i7 with Surface Pro.

When it comes to the keyboard, it appears to be nearly identical to that of the Surface Pro Type Cover, and it has a fine and satisfying click. Nonetheless, the touchpad is a bit narrow compared to the ones can be seen on Surface Pro. The type cover uses a Pogo-Pin connector and comes disconnected more effortlessly than with Surface Pro. It can also work wirelessly, which is something Microsoft could learn from.

The expansion is even more remarkable. The Microsoft remains to dissatisfy with a single USB 3 port, mini-DisplayPort for video-out and the USB-based Surface Connect for power and additional expansion.
