Google Pixel C

Read full Google Pixel C review

Our pick for getting stuff done

Key Features:
  • 10.2-inch, 2,560 x 1,800 screen
  • Optional keyboard with magnetic hinge
  • Outstanding battery life and performance

The Google Pixel C is the first Android tablet wholly designed and produced by Google. It hasn't partnered with anyone, as it does with its Nexus products, it's 100% Google.

In essence it's something between an iPad Air and an iPad Pro. It's an attractive and very powerful 10.2-inch tablet, but an optional keyboard makes this the best Android tablet for working on ever. The Pixel C clips to the keyboard magnetically and the hinge has an awesome smooth action that makes it very versatile.

Of course, you benefit from a clean, unblemished version of Android, and Google has tweaked a few things to make it work better on tablets. It still suffers somewhat from a comparative lack of tablet optimised apps – compared to the iPad – but Android fans shouldn't worry about that.

Buy Now at Amazon.co.uk from £479 | Store.Google.com from £399

At time of review the Google Pixel C was available for £400 (without keyboard).

Our Score:

8

disagree! have 8 in. Tab 4. too small. better choice for all around is 10 or 12 in. will replace many PCs now in use. add a keyboard and mouse when needed for utility. also SD port and USB an asset. does not have to be paper thin but reasonable weight. a good screen and stable touch an asset. reasonable price a must for success. wishful thinking?

The Nvidia Shield tablet you link to, the K1 version, can be yours new for under £150 now, and as an owner, I think it the best "small" tablet you can buy bar none (especially now they've released the botched Marshmallow update). A new version, based around the X1 SOC has been benchmarked and will presumably be out soon.

I realise aggregating existing reviews into a "best of" feature is a quick way of generating new content but when the original review you link to is, in this instance, dated October 2014, you do need to have a look at whether it's still up to date.
