My New Touch Cover Is Better Than My Old One?!


Recommended Posts

My old touch cover, which I got with my Surface at Christmas, recently started to fall apart even thought I treated it extremely carefully after seeing pictures of them peeling on forums! Mine seemed to peel in a different place and worse than anyone's on the internet (I've attached a picture below).

After talking to Surface support I sent mine away and they gave me a brand new one which I was happy about (and kind of expected because it's definitely a manufacturing fault).


My new one arrived and it is BETTER. The touch sensitivity has increased to the perfect level. Before I always thought it was ever so slightly not sensitive enough and I had to learn to hit the keys. But this new one is much more natural and doesn't feel like such a big jump when switching between using the touch screen and the cover. Oh, and the keys are less pronounced which is a slight negative actually, but one I can definitely live with.


Has anyone noticed this!?

I have a Type cover, my wife has a cyan Touch cover. So far, hers hasn't shown any signs of 'peeling'. I do like the idea that the newer ones have more sensitivity but, like you, I don't like the idea that the keys are less raised.

      I have the Surface 2 with the type cover 2.  It is great, but the keyboard is so expensive that I want to leave it on the table instead of carrying it around when I want to use the surface in consumption mode.
      I wish microsoft or some other third party made a simple cover blade for $40 that simple functioned as a book cover.

      I'm not 100% sure about this so am posting on here to see if anyone else has had the same issue. There seem to be creaks being made when I try to press the buttons of the Surface keyboard that are near the corners. Also, there appears to be a bubble of air underneath part of the cover, near the mouse pad. The creaks make the cover uncomfortable to use.
      Has anyone else experienced these? I'm going to try to get a replacement cover!

      I'm looking for a cover only for the surface pro, like the ipad which when folded puts the surface on a slight angle. Has anyone found or looked for anything like this?
