Tablets are usually used for fun, but with the Google Pixel C, you can also use it for work. There are many things that the powerful device can do. This trend has been growing in recent years especially after Microsoft introduced its Surface tablet. The Pixel C has a 10-inch screen, which is ample enough to carry out different tasks.
When it comes to design, the Google Pixel C is pretty compact. It is a bit reminiscent of the average Chromebook. However, this one is special as it comes with a detachable keyboard. Now if you need a tablet for business use, the Pixel C is the right choice. The two halves can be put together using magnets. The hinge, although provide so much flexibility, is very firm and solid. It comes with an aluminum clad, which is another trait you can see on a Chromebook. Overall, the exterior is beautiful. This tablet can be compared to the iPad Air 2 since both share similar sizes. The Pixel C is slightly bigger with 242 x 179 x 7 mm. Take a look at the edges, they are also tastefully designed. There are no sharp edges, so holding it feels so comfortable.
A 10.2-inch screen can be seen on the front. It utilizes LTPS-LCD technology. Compared to other displays, this one is clearly better at maintaining power because it consumes less even at high brightness levels. It boasts 2,560 x 1,800 pixels with a pixel density of 308 ppi. Not only does it produce sharp graphics, but the colors are also incredible. At the same time, the viewing angles are wide, so we can see it from different angles without a problem. Some argue that it even has a sharper screen than the iPad Air 2, but you should compare them directly to find out. Despite not having the highest contrast, it still provides natural color reproduction.
The Google Pixel C is a powerful Android tablet with a Tegra X1 chip and 3GB of RAM crammed inside. This pair allows it to load apps very fast. You wouldn’t even notice any lag. In other words, it really delivers what it’s supposed to be. Aside from loading apps quickly, multitasking also runs smoothly. Just install any app you like on the Play Store to find out how powerful this device is. The magnetic keyboard adds to its appeal. It may not seem unique in terms of design, but the keyboard really improves the user experience.
It works great, although missing an LED backlight. The magnets also help hold the pieces together strongly. It runs on the Android 6.0.1, has a bunch of pre-installed apps as well, like Google’s productivity apps. Another feature you can’t miss is a 8MP camera on the back. The sensor sounds descent, but it is clearly not designed for photographic purposes since the captures tend to be grainy. Besides, it also doesn’t offer HDR mode, which is an important feature to create high quality photos. The front-facing camera is 2MP and it performs well for video calls.
