iPad Pro vs Microsoft Surface: Sketch tests!

by birtanpublished on August 28, 2020

All right so this is going to be a test of the Apple pencil versus the Microsoft Surface in both their shipping default notes apps as well as tests with Adobe Photoshop or with some big block letters little tiny liars I'm just going to do a little a little

Cute doodle all right so now we're taking a look at the Microsoft Surface book and how it interacts with its companion pen technology so again we're going to start off with big block lettering Microsoft's

Pen is about as responsive as the pencil although it does feel like there's more lag because you've got this little pointer that comes on the screen as you get close this is very similar to Wacom technology it also appears to me that

Microsoft Surface has a little bit more trouble writing in very very small fonts or small faces the pressure seems also a little bit harder for me to control you can calibrate the Microsoft Surface and I did before starting this test

And while the calibration has certainly made it better it's not quite as responsive pressure wise as the iPad pencil so with fresh paint you can choose your canvas and paper style as well as your pencil style I don't think

The built-in pencils here are quite as good as Apple's renditions or procreates R editions we're going to go ahead and do a little bit of a drawing because I'm not a comic book artist for a living all of my drawings are slightly different

I'm doing this freehand I'm not looking at the other drawing that I did so like the iPad pro the surface and the surface both they're very precise which is nice they have about the same level precision that I can feel the surface

Pen is a little bit clicky ER it does have that same kind of push in that the pencil does but you can physically hear the click click click as you draw around the pencil feels very natural I know exactly how much pressure is going to

Create a stronger line or a thinner line at same thing with using a real pencil with the surface it feels a lot more like when I'm using a Wacom tablet where the level of pressure is mostly on point but can occasionally do some weird

Things and putting light pressing lightly and not really intending to get as much line as I end up getting in Windows 10 has both a tablet and a desktop mode which means yes you can do things like run Photoshop on on the

Surface so we're going to compare direct Photoshop manipulation on the surface to using Astro pad on the iPad so first let's start with a Photoshop test on the surface like the iPad that palm rejection is great

There we go there's an inking test in Photoshop on the surface book on the iPad there are two different options to work with Photoshop Adobe has a bunch of mini Photoshop like applications that it's chopped up over the app store

Including this Photoshop sketch now you can start to work in one of these applications and then tap the share button and send a PSD directly to Creative Cloud or Photoshop or illustrator on your Mac so this is a

Great way to start work at something that you want to then complete somewhere else here I can either choose to leave this as a sketch and send this to Photoshop or I can go and do an ink on top of it

So there's that and I can tap send to Photoshop just like that and they'll sign into Photoshop on my Mac
