Default Surface 3 as a tablet

Can anyone report on what it is like using the surface 3 or any surface for that matter as a traditional tablet (ie. not using the keyboard). I was thinking about getting one to replace my old Nexus 7 but I cannot find much about using it that way. Most of the reviews seem to focus on using it with the keyboard.

my personal opinion is that the Surface Pro w/12 inch screen is too large to be a tablet. I like to hold my tablet with on hand and click with the other. 12 inch screens are a little too bulky for that. The Surface 3 is 10 inches and a better tablet size IMHO.

I have a SP3 -- I am about 50/50 on how I use. If I am working, I use it as a lappy but if I am riding the couch I switch to tablet. I love it.
