Review from dpreview.com
*The below review is from Amazon.com
It seems like the big question right now is, "Do I get the Surface Pro 4 or the Surface Book?"
I'll explain why I chose the Surface Pro 4, but first, a quick about me. I am a college student majoring in EECS and I commute 4 hours a day by bus so having a light backpack is important to me.
The S.Book is almost two times heavier than the SP4. It packs much more computing power than the SP4, but as an EECS major, I don't need the extra power that the S.Book has. I don't plan to play any intensive games or render/animate things so the SP4 fits my needs better. The S.Book also has a $400 higher price tag ($270 if you get the Type Cover for the SP4) that I'm not willing to pay for unneeded performance. I haven't tried the S.Book's keyboard, but the SP4's keyboard feels great to type on and other reviewers have said both keyboards are amazing. Reading textbooks or other PDF's feels much more natural with the SP4's tablet form. The S.Book without the keyboard only has a battery life of 3 hours, and although it can be used with the keyboard 'wrapped' around the back, I think that it'll only be a hassle for me to deal with. I'd rather not deal with having to detach the S.Book every time I want to use it in tablet mode. If you plan to render/animate things you should probably consider going with the Surface Book. Otherwise, I highly recommend the Surface Pro 4 for doing everyday/light to medium tasks.
Now onto the actual Surface Pro 4 Review.
I love the SP4. In the past year, I've owned an iPad Air, MacBook Pro, and the Razer Blade 2015. The SP4 fits my needs the best by far.
The SP4 replaces both my textbooks and notebooks. For me, this is a big deal because I no longer have to carry around my notebooks, textbooks, and supplemental writing materials (highlighters, etc). The Surface Pen tips can be replaced with other pen tips to change the writing "feedback" feeling but the stock pen tip feels great. OneNote keeps all my notes organized and being able to access them from any device is incredibly convenient. Using the Surface Pen for writing on textbooks and PDF's is also very useful.
I've been getting ~7-9 hours of battery life on the SP4 which is more than enough to get me through a school day. The screen is not too small like the iPad, neither is it bulky like a laptop. The screen resolution is high and text/videos are crisp and easy to read/watch. The magnet on the left side of the SP4 is surprising strong and holds the Surface Pen well. The magnet on the right side is significantly weaker (maybe because all the I/O ports are on this side) but it can hold the pen well. The kickstand works perfectly and stays in the position I set it to. The SP4 Type Cover feels great and protects your screen when you aren't using it.
Gaming shouldn't be the main reason you buy the SP4, but it could run some games if you decide to do so. I did try running StarCraft II and Heroes of the Storm and the SP4 handled it pretty well. I wouldn't even bother trying to run more demanding games such as GTAV on the SP4. That being said, the gaming experience was rather unpleasant. You should consider the Surface Book if you plan to game on-the-go frequently.
Software-wise, I don't have much to comment on. It looks and performs exactly like Windows 10 should on a normal desktop or laptop. I've never used the Microsoft Store and don't intend to so I don't know much about the apps that are available on the SP4.
The only con I found with this device is the fact that it only has a single USB port. It's inconvenient when I'm using the SP4 with a mouse and I need to use my flash drive. I haven't had any overheating issues and I can't find any issues with the build quality.
In closing, I don't think anyone else offers the performance and quality that the Surface Pro 4 has in the same lightweight and thin chassis. It is incredibly versatile and it has replaced many heavy and cumbersome objects in my bag.
I'll update this review as I continue to use the SP4. Feel free to leave questions/comments and I will try my best to answer them.

What I liked about this product are - the surface pen, screen resolution, compactness and lt's ightweight when compared to other windows based laptops ( not tablet though)
what I didn't like about this product is the battery backup(max 3.5 to 4 h while coding) and one should not consider it as tablet. If you wanted to use this product as Pro you need to get rid of keyboard first thing, but if you remove Keyboard it acts as a Tablet which I have already said it's not possible because of this the weight and size.
I have a simple logic , it's customer who will suffer at the end, imagine a situation that after paying 100000.00 INR, your device stopped working and you are not getting responses from either Amazon or Microsoft. One thing to always remember that 1 lack is a huge amount !!!!
1) I had disabled fast start up... and then disabled hibernation but That didn't help.
("Power Options" >choose what the power button does > change settings that are currently unavailable)
2) I have windows hello disabled, but That didn't help (Further that shouldn't matter anyway since I'm shutting it down, not sleeping. Method: go to 'change account settings' from the start menu. Then to sign in options. There you will see hello and I just had to hit the 'remove' button. restart)
3) I disabled connected standby through regedit..that didn't help.
(Run Registry Editor (regedit)> Navigate to the following registry key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power
>Change the value for CsEnabled from 1 to 0.)
4) change in Intel Management Engine Interface" driver v11 , go into device manager and in the power management tab for this device uncheck the option that allows windows to power it down to save power. I tried that and it didn't help.
5) I have downgraded Intel Management Engine Interface driver from v11 to v9.5 by uninstalling the existing v11x from device manager and installing (manually choosing)v9.5 (2014) which was downloaded from intel site but that didn't help.
6) Shut Down, keep type cover or wait 10 minutes then remove Type Cover from tablet but that didn't help.
7) all devices like cameras, wifi, audio, bluetooth etc are disabled at uefi bios but that didn't help.
8 ) open cmd as an admin, and run the following command - bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes but that didn't help.
9) I put it in hibernate instead of shutdown, it consumed 1%more than shutdown*
10) Shift + shutdown tried, but that didn't help.
11) Shutdown.exe /s /t 3 /c "full shutdown" tried , but that didn't help.
12) I have installed Windows 8.1 from image from xda and tried above equivalents but didn't help. (before this i cloned my disk image with EUSEUS To Do Backup Free edition and copied the back up to PC later restored with its USB emergency bootable disk)
13) Control panel > "Power Options" >choose what the power button does > select shutdown for all,
Control panel > "Power Options" >choose when turn off the display >select never for both "change advanced power settings" look around and find "battery", click on "+" and more options will appear. * look for "critical battery action" and then in the "+"select *shut down on all (while updating drivers this switches to hibernation or from factory defaults settings ) , at processor power management maximum processor state set 75% on plugged and unplugged and cooling policies look around in the same place, it's in the "Show settings that are unavailable". but didn't help.
14) When my PC sleeps on my battery power, My Network connection disconnect from network set to :Always but that did not help in shutdown
15) I tried to downgrade UEFI firmware , it downgrades driver in Windows but not real UEFI, no such crack exists (getting some clue from forum that while being solved the sleep issues Microsoft might have unintentionally created this)
I've never seen any new device even with Intel Skylake processors (whom Microsoft Blames) a battery loose power in shut-down mode , at least without any control in BIOS or UEFI to stop it. why it powers on from shutdown on single click instead of press and hold power button few seconds of conventional method.
However Microsoft solved/ brought to acceptable level of Battery drain in sleep / hibernation.
Battery Drain in full Shutdown at the rate of 10% per day is very huge and it is not yet solved. It is a big problem for every body and particularly for rarely using people / journeys, as charging schedule is to be maintained to compensate battery drain for availability and to keep the battery healthy. Most of the other laptops use UEFI or BIOS from Award or AMI, which has large number of options, even to control power in Shutdown whereas UEFI of Microsoft has very few options, there may be the problem. I believe Microsoft EUFI , which has created its own UEFI without much experience on BIOS like Award or AMI and proprietary customisations , proprietary drivers may be culprits [ e.g. one option available in some other tablets , I have seen solving the problem , by enter into UEFI bios, Go to utility setup>power>advanced cpu control>boot performance mode> select Max Battery , and utility setup>power>MRD FLD03 power management> select enable this had reduced the power consumption in full shutdown from 5 % to less than 0.5 % per day. Unless Microsoft fixes through properly coded firmware if no hardware problem exist or we / Microsoft install a physical switch on battery terminal wire with a low power consumption and low leakage diode for charging in physical switch in off condition, cannot be solved.
Let's start with price. I brought from Amazon US with the help of friend. 100000 for i7 16GB model. All laptops are relatively cheaper there.
I will be comparing it with Mac Book Pro (I have used it for over a year) in every aspect as both are priced similarly and target audiences are high end users looking for a portable option.
1) OS X vs Windows 10: Only if you're die hard Mac fan or regular user of few softwares optimized for Mac, then only can you prefer OS X over Win 10. Win 10 is so much more versatile, customizable with touch screen, pen support. In fact OS X looks dated if you go from SP4 to Mac Book. OS X doesn't even have a dark theme or night mode.
2)Build quality: Excellent, top of the line. Comparable to Mac in some aspects.
3)Design: The kickstand is the star of the show. I finally started reading pdf books on a laptop due to the kickstand, and pen support. Even eclipses experience on Kindle without a shadow of doubt.
4)Keyboard: Wow! So thin, yet sturdy. Trackpad is surprisingly excellent (not as good as Mac though). You will love typing on type cover. Sadly, its too expensive here. I got it for 5k from Amazon US.
5)Battery life: Not as great as MacBook (obviously). But, charger is quite small. I am getting around 5-6 hrs depending upon usage.
6)Performance: The startup and shutdown timings are superfast. Light gaming is doable. This is made for editing photos and videos. Pen and touch support just enhances the whole experience.
7)Display: Stunner. Way better than the MacBook display (though it got more brighter, and dimmer). Viewing angles are exceptional (even at 180 degrees). I watched a lot of movies again due to the display. Audio output is okay (clear, not too loud though, Mac book has better audio).
8)Windows hello: The coolest way to login. Apple suddenly copied this in their newer iphones. It's so fast, reliable and accurate. It works perfectly even in dark lighting conditions.
9)Webcam: The best I have seen on any laptop. It's a 5MP webcam with 1080p video recording. Mic quality is good too. It is ideal for video conferencing.
10)Versatility: This is the most versatile product on the market. The pen, touch, kickstand, lightweight compactness, Windows 10 versatility makes it a joy to use. Seriously, I cannot switch to Mac forever.
