Google Pixel C Tablet Review

 

Notebook ambitions. Powerful SoC, good display, a brand-new Android 6.0 and even an optional keyboard: The 10.2-inch Google Pixel C wants to compete with high-end tablets and it can actually leave a very good impression in our review.

great design, sophisticated materials, Android 6.0, fast SoC, 3 GB RAM, USB Type-C, very bright display, high viewing angle stability, good camera in daylight, long battery runtimes

no microSD slot, no GPS, no WWAN, camera noise in low-light situations, keyboard costs 170 Euros extra

Many features of the 10.2-inch Google Pixel C are convincing. Thanks to its nice design and the sophisticated aluminum chassis, its visuals and tactile feel can easily compete with any iPad. Advantages are, among others, the modern Android OS, the...

The Google Pixel C Review

 

In early 2010, Google and HTC launched the Nexus One . While it was designed in a partnership between Google and HTC, it represented Google's first step into the arena of smartphone hardware design. Since that time, having a Nexus device designed and...

At the very least, I think existing buyers should be given some public timeline of when Google plans to issue the much needed bug fixing updates. In its current state, I honestly can’t give the Pixel C any sort of recommendation, even to the biggest...

Google Pixel C Review

 

Powered by a brawny Nvidia Tegra X1 processor, the Pixel C is the first Android tablet that Google has built on its own. It's also a very compelling option, thanks to its beautiful display, long-lasting battery and detachable design. The Android...

Brilliant display; Powerful processor; Long battery life; Strong hinge and excellent hybrid experience

Android on tablets needs work; Cramped keyboard

The Google Pixel C is a phenomenal piece of hardware; we only wish that Android were better optimized for tablets and keyboards.

Google Pixel C review

 

The Pixel C is the first decent Android 2-in-1, but still has problems.

Android enthusiasts are ready for something more satisfying, a device they can sink their teeth into, and this is it. Like the Chromebook Pixel, the Pixel C shows that a lightweight operating system can function well on high-end hardware. It’s a...

Google Pixel C Review

 

Google shows a deft touch for hardware at times, and the Pixel C is one of those occasions. It's a clear cousin to the Chromebook Pixel, with a squared-off anodized aluminum casing and Gorilla Glass protected display. The refreshing absence of logos is...

Google Pixel C

 

Google's Pixel C tablet has high-end hardware, but buggy Android software holds it back.

High-end metal body. Good CPU performance. Long battery life.

Extremely buggy. Lags behind other tablets on productivity. Dull cameras.

Comparisons and Conclusions It's very difficult to rate a product that's crippled by solvable software bugs, as those bugs may get solved, but I have to rate the product that's on sale right now. Honestly, I'd have rated this tablet at 2.5 stars,...

Google Pixel C review

 

Google's latest tablet is its greatest yet. In fact, the Pixel C hands down is the most powerful Android tablet I've ever used. The real question here isn't if the Pixel C is the best tablet, it's "who cares"?

The Google Pixel C has a slim, compact aluminum build that feels sturdy. Its optional Bluetooth keyboard is equally solid and doubles as the tablet's cover and it has a powerful, long-running battery. The tablet runs the latest version of Android and...

It's a bit heavy when attached to the keyboard (which is sold separately). Big-name apps and games still tend to hit iOS before Android.

The Google Pixel C is the best Android tablet money can buy.

Google Pixel C tablet

 

The Pixel C starts at $500 and has a high-end design, spectacular screen, fast performance and long-lasting battery. (UK and Australian pricing has yet to be announced, but the US price converts to around £335 or AU$695.) But with interest in tablets...

Google Pixel C review: A killer Android tablet with an unfullfilled productivity mission

 

A great hardware keyboard telegraphs the Pixel C's intentions. Now Google just needs to make Android a productivity OS.

No-compromise build quality and industrial design ; Exceedingly competent keyboard accessory ; No-excuses display and CPU performance ; Pure Android—just how we like it

No multi-window support ; Android still doesn't feel like a productivity OS—and that's a missed opportunity

Killer industrial design, awesome performance, and a great hardware keyboard telegraph the Pixel C's intentions. Now Google just needs to make Android a productivity tablet OS.

Pixel C review: Google's first tablet makes rookie mistakes

 

The Pixel C, while an intriguing first effort at making a convertible, is simply tough to recommend. It's well built, but Google has made some surprising usability mistakes with the Pixel C, and Android just isn't cut out for productivity as much as...

Premium build quality ; Keyboard feels great ; Noticeably fast for a tablet

Keyboard is another $149 ; Android still isn't built for desktop-like multitasking ; Still not a wide variety of great Android tablet apps

The Pixel C, while an intriguing first effort at making a convertible, is simply tough to recommend. That's especially true when there are plenty of cheaper and better equipped options out there. But it's also an intriguing first effort by Google. It's...
