Google Pixel C review

 

The best Android tablet around

Fantastic screen ; Premium design ; Solid power

Heavy ; Keyboard is pricey option ; No microSD slot or 4G model

Google's done it – it's made the best Android tablet around. The Pixel C has it all: a fantastic display, heaps of power and a premium design. Plus, for those willing to splash the cash, the keyboard is a great accessory.

Google Pixel C review: Pixel perfect?

 

The first Pixel was a Chromebook, launched with a flourish - a shining example of what a Chromebook could be, if you were going to pour everything into it. The arrival of the Pixel C tablet sees a new entrant to Google's Pixel programme, one that's...

Wonderful quality design, excellent display, lots of power, great keyboard, good battery performance

No fingerprint scanner, some unexplained unresponsiveness

We love the Pixel C's simple design and think the optional keyboard (£119 extra) has been considerately designed too. For those looking for a lightweight solution to working on the move, this is another contender that's great for productivity, whether...

Pixel C review: the best slate an Android fan can get

 

Google's combined style and substance creates the best iPad Air 2 rival out.

Brilliant display ; Premium design ; Plenty of power

Not optimised for keyboard ; Battery could be better ; Heavy

Google Pixel C review

 

A year after launch, but the latest Android updates keep the Pixel C relevant

Nice 2K display ; Great keyboard ; 10-hour battery life

Speakers aren't great ; No stylus

A year on and the Pixel C is still a great tabtop. Android Nougat makes it excellent for working on the go, and it'll handle the most demanding games easily.

Google Pixel C

 

When the Pixel C was released it was one of the only Android tablets worth buying. In 2017, for better or worse this remains the case. Despite being over a year old there haven't been any other decent premium Android tablets to hit the market.

Google Pixel C review

 

The Pixel C is a 10.2in Android tablet that's the price of an iPad Air, but you can pair it with an optional keyboard for times when you need to type a lot. To find out how it stacks up against the competition, read our Google Pixel C review.

As a standalone tablet, the Pixel C is superb. It’s better than the HTC-made Nexus 9 which was great but not exceptional. Which the 'C' most certainly is. Storage is a bit limited, but if you can live with 32GB it’s good value at £399.Paying an extra...

Google Pixel C review

 

The Pixel C has plenty of power and a brilliant keyboard dock, but Android isn't the ideal OS for getting work done

The introduction of Doze in Android Marshmallow also helps extend the time between recharges; with the tablet stationary, screen off and running on battery power, it will enter a deep sleep, periodically waking up to let apps update and accept push...

Google Pixel C Review: In Depth

 

Interesting things happen when Google decides to bring its hardware design in-house and the new Pixel C is the perfect example of this.Google's been pushing out its own hardware for years – in the…

Ingenious industrial design ; Powerful hardware ; Good battery life ; Stunning display

Inexcusably flakey software ; Expensive ; Poor cameras ; Keyboard not included

Like the Chromebook Pixel, Google intended the Pixel C to be ultimate pure Android tablet and whilst the software and hardware are undeniably powerful, it falls down in ways we didn’t expect.
