Google Pixel C

   The Google Pixel C is an impressive looking tablet that will surely attract a lot of attention. Google is really well known for it’s browser.  Google did not do any trade-offs with this tablet. This is what makes it a well-balanced tablet. If there is any improvement that Google could consider upgrading is the OS. Here are the following specifications: ( 1. ) OS – Android 6.0 Marshmallow ( 2. ) CPU -  Nvidia Tegra X1, Quad-core 1.9 GHz  ( 3. ) GPU -256 core Maxwell GPU ( 4. ) RAM – 3GB LPDDR3 ( 4. ) SSD – 32GB or 64GB ( 5.) Cameras – 2MP front and 8MP rear ( 6. ) Battery – 9243mAh: USB Type-C charging ( 7. ) Audio – Stereo Speakers ; Quad noise cancelling; microphones; 3.5mm audio out ( 8.) Connection – WI-FI 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, 2 x 2; MIMO dual-band ( 9. ) Bluetooth 44.1 + HS ( 10. ) Sensors – Ambient Light, Gyroscope, Accelerometer, Compass, Mail and Proximity ( 10. ) Keyboard – Optional Bluetooth wireless  ( 11. ) Measurements – 249 x 179 x 7 millimeters ( 12. ) Weight – 1.14 pounds. The price of this tablet is $600.00. If the user opts for a keyboard, then he or she will have to add an additional $150.00 to the price.You might find it on sale now since it has been introduced in 2015.

   The Google Pixel C as built an all metal structure. This tablet looks good, though it does not strike me as looking elegant. I personally like the way it was designed because of it’s subtle approach.  On the back anyone can spot a thin line of LEDs and it does bring out the colors of Google. This I like and it is really unique.  When the screen is working,  the google colors are lit. Give it two taps and it will tell the user, how much of battery life you have left. The power grilles can be seen on both sides of the top edges together with the power and volume buttons. The USB-C port is located on the bottom edge. The  Google Pixel C is a beautiful looking tablet. The combination of the tablet and keyboard is just perfect. The keyboard has a magnetic docking hinge that keeps the tablet in place. The keyboard has that pleasant feeling when you type on it. The Google Pixel C has a 2,560 x 1,800 display resolution and a pixel density of 308ppi. With this, the user can be assured that the text and images look superb and crisp. The color accuracy is pinpoint. This tablet has a touch screen display. You can’t do multitasking with this tablet and it’s because of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow Operating System. You can only open up one app at a time. I just hope that Google can fix this issue. The back and home onscreen buttons are located on the bottom left edge of the screen and the recents button is located on the bottom right.. the user will have to choose between a 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. There is no microSD card storage on this tablet. The 8MP camera gives the user fair enough looking pictures. The 2MP camera can be used for videos  and video calls. For selfies, I prefer using a smartphone.

  If the user wants performance, this is one of the fastest performing tablets in the market today. In the Geekbench 3 single core test it managed to score 1,347 points and on the multi-core test it was able to score 3,976 points. It is above the average.  It’s in the graphics test where the Google Pixel C stands out. On the GFXB Bench GL Manhattan onscreen test, this tablet had a score 1,744 points and on the GFXB Bench GL Manhattan test, this tablet scored 3,318 points. The scores on the Graphics test are great and this is all because of it’s GPU. The Andtoid Marshmallow 6.0 comes with Doze and this helps to extend the battery life. For normal usage, you can get 8 hours or a bit more of battery life.
