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...

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...

Google Pixel C review: An Android tablet worthy of replacing your iPad

 

The Google Pixel C is a performance monster with a sleek design and impressively solid keyboard.

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

 

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 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.

Google Pixel C review: Too clever by half

 

A funny thing happened on the way to inventing the future of touchscreen computing: everybody is botching it. Google is the latest company to try to rethink how we interact with computers,...

Excellent hardware ; Great battery life ; Keyboard surprisingly good

Android needs work on tablets ; Some performance stutters

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...
