    Did you buy both just to compare? Are you going to send one back or keep both?

    Pen Input not Working in Some Parts of Screen

    Some Touch issues were there , after 10 mins of use , touch stopped working and after resuming from sleep it again started working . Touch stops every every 10 mins approximately .

    But my SP3 i7 doesn't have any such issues. Both SP3s are having all firmware and all updates.

    I hope a refresh fixes your issues with the pen.

    Actually its an Hardware issue , I have exchanged it . Now i5 Does Pretty good job.

    Roughly i7 is 1.4 times faster than i5. Worth your money.
