The Google Pixel C is an incredible slate aside from being the first device that is designed and manufactured by Google itself. This gadget was launched back in 2015 but just got a software update to Android 7 Nougat. This means that the slate from Google is still equally relevant as its competitions like Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 and Apple iPad Pro 9.7 tablets. Apart from this, the Pixel C has enormous power, superb display, and an appealing form factor that is enough for making it a popular device amongst gadget lovers from across the world. What’s more, it acts like a connecting link between Nexus slates and Chromebook Pixels laptops due to an inclusion of a keyboard dock which converts the Pixel C from an Android slate to a hybrid laptop. Again, this smart gadget comes in two storage size – 32GB and 64GB. Apparently, the 64GB model is pricier than the 32GB variant from Google. What is important to note here, the Pixel C with or without its Pixel keyboard is cheaper than rivals like Microsoft Surface Pro 4 (including or excluding its keyboard). However, for the detailed price comparison, you can visit one of the popular tablet shops in Dubai.
Boasting of a Design that is Pleasing to the Eyes
In anodized finished aluminum metal body, the Pixel C grabs your attention, at once. It not only looks nice in its slick body, but also it seems like a premium and expensive gadget from Google. On the top, there are thick bezels around its 10.2-Inches screen. Bezel on the bottom has no physical home buttons, thus seems like a useless portion of the front panel. Again, power key rests on the left of top of the gadget whilst volume rocker is found on the left. Further, on the right side of the device, you will find a 3.5mm audio jack and dual stereo speakers. Multipurpose USB-C port is available on the bottom of the slate which enables you to transfer data to and from your device. You can also use the same port for charging your Pixel C slate. Interestingly, this port also helps you to charge other devices. Unlike LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P, there is no fingerprint scanner which is a bit disappointing factor. Rear camera is accompanied by Chromebook light bar which shines in four trademark colors of Google. This resembles to lightened Apple Logo found on MacBook. A double tap of this gadget will help you to know the battery status even though the tablet is switched off. Again, the Pixel C is a 7mm thick, flat-edged device that is apparently not easy to get fit into the palm of your hands. Also, at 242 X 179mm dimensions, this is not a slat that you would like to cling to for longer period of time. Again, with 517grams weight, it is a heavier gadget than most of the Apple flagship tablets. Also, this device is available for sale on numerous tablet stores.
Higher Screen Resolution with Great Screen Density Underlining the Pixel in its Name
If we talk about its LTPS IPS LCD screen, it is 10.2” large and has a screen resolution at 2560 X 1800pixels with 308ppi density. This clearly means that Pixel C’s screen is excellent than Apple iPad Air 2 (264ppi) and HTC Nexus 9 (281ppi). The screen size of Pixel C is also larger than aforementioned devices. This means that it is a crystal clear display which delivers you with pin-sharp clarity and extremely bright colors. In fact, the Pixel C’s screen has up to 500nits screen brightness which makes it usable under the bright Dubai sun. What else, this display is powered by PolySilicon Technology which keeps the display’s power consumption at low to save battery power. To buy this wonderful gadget for its vibrant screen, you can log on to one of the online shops for tablets.
Smart, Full-Sized Keyboard Offering Laptop Keyboard Experience
The keyboard that is sold separately has a bunch of features which make typing on this device a superb and comfortable experience. It has automatic pairing feature meaning it connects instantly to the main slate once its Bluetooth gets switched on. You also do not have to switch off the keyboard after use as it gets disconnected automatically. Other than this, the keyboard comes with strong magnet which attaches itself to the one third of the Pixel C’s rear making sure keyboard and slate cannot get disconnected even though you pick up the pairing either by keyboard or tablet. This feature is known as the docking system. Also, this magnet doubles as a hinge to let you tilt the device at a preferred degree
for optimum viewing. What else, this keyboard charges wirelessly once gets paired with Google Pixel C. In short, typing on this keyboard is as easy as it is on Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S’s keyboard. The only drawback here is unlike Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet, you cannot use this keyboard in portrait mode. Still, you can give it a try by buying the slate from the best online shopping site UAE.
Exploring Performance, Battery Life & Camera
The Google Pixel C is integrated with Nvidia Tegra X1 processor which is a 64-bit Quad-core chipset. Its all four cores are clocked at 1.9GHz. This hardware offers the device with enormous power. It is further joined by Nvidia Maxwell GPU for performing well while gaming. Again, there is 3G B of RAM for backup which makes it a powerful device than iPad Air 2 but slightly less powerful than the Octa-core Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 which has greater capacity for increasing loads.
Coming to its battery, it is a 9240mAh unit which is non-removable. This battery gives you ten hours of slate-usage from a single charge. Although, it’s not the best battery, it is fairly good in its class. You can go for online shopping for tablet to buy it at a fair price.
Even though, the Google has given a lot of attention to Pixel C’s battery, screen, and power, some of its specs don’t meet its flagship price. This statement goes perfectly right with the camera application on this slate which gives a middle-level performance to users. Its 8MP primary camera is not skilled at taking good quality nighttime images. 2MP secondary camera also has the similar issues and offers a mediocre performance to users. In contrast, Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is considered as a slate with top-notch cameras.
