Surface (set up and) Go?

My initial reservations are proving justified. Using my Surface Go is not a case of ‘set up and go’.

ProsCons
Mail, Calendar and People integrate nicely with my Google account.To-do does not integrate with my Google account
OneDrive, OneNote and Skype are installed and set themselves upOneNote is the horrible Windows 10 app
Dropbox has an approved appGoogle Drive does not have an approved app.
Connection to my phone, albeit I have to set it up in two places on the Surface and download yet another app on my phoneI have no windows ink icon as promised in the Surface Tips
Windows hello! I love signing in with my face.I can’t register my pen. It seemed to work out of the box, but then I realised I had to connect it to the Surface using Bluetooth
Windows Defender 
My Surface pen with its two buttons and eraser 

You might say so far so good. But I have already spent more time setting up the Go than setting up my iPad. And I haven’t got to the things I use on a tablet.
