Google Pixel Slate Review | Trusted Reviews


We take a first look at the Google Pixel Slate, and find out if it's ready for creatives as we find out its specs, release date and price.

Sleek design ; Good keyboard and trackpad ; Solid battery life ; Google Assistant support is fantastic

App offering is lacking for power users and creatives ; Android apps can crash/not work on occasion ; Expensive for what it is

The Pixel Slate has promise, but Chrome OS needs work.

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 Slate review


Does Google's tablet live up to its high-end price tag?

Great stereo speakers ; Solid battery life ; Bright, sharp screen

Flaky Android app support ; Expensive ; Occasional wobbly performance and navigation

Top tier hardware matched with software that doesn’t deserve it

Google Pixel Slate review: Not quite the finished article


Gorgeous hardware, but there are too many small flaws for the Pixel Slate to command such a high price

Great speakers ; Works well with Android and Linux apps ; Case fits somewhat loosely

Chrome OS is a bit rough around the edges ; Palm rejection issues with stylus ; Too expensive for the specifications

The simple fact is that, if someone came to me wanting to spend £1,300 on a portable computer, I simply wouldn’t be able to recommend the Pixel Slate. Not because it’s a bad product, poorly made or ergonomically suspect – it is none of these things –...

Google Pixel Slate isn't your best Chromebook bet


Google's pricey vision of a tablet-meets-Chromebook doesn't quite gel

The Pixel Slate has a nice display, solid construction, a great-feeling keyboard accessory, supports mice and trackpads (like all Chromebooks), and has always-on Google Assistant as an option.

The Pixel Slate feels a little too heavy and has buggy software and unimpressive performance. It's expensive compared to competing Chromebook/tablet alternatives.

There are a lot of good ideas in the Pixel Slate, but this pricey Google tablet doesn't do enough to distinguish itself from the plenty of other great Chromebook options out there.

Google Pixel Slate


Google has released a new ChromeOS tablet, but is it good enough to take on Microsoft's Surface Pro 6? We compare the two.

The Pixel Slate is Google's answer to the Microsoft Surface Pro and the Apple iPad Pro. Instead of running Android as you might expect, this tablet uses Google's Chrome OS operating system instead. With a high price and expensive accessories, this...

Google Pixel Slate review: The burden of bad software


Based purely on its hardware, the Pixel Slate is impressive. Unfortunately, the whole package is hampered by a confusing software experience and a high price. If you're looking for a Chrome device, there are plenty of less expensive options that work...

Gorgeous display ; Good battery life ; Excellent speakers ; Full desktop browser on a tablet is extremely useful

Performance as a tablet is subpar ; Android apps on Chrome OS are still a confusing (and sometimes buggy) mess ; Very expensive ; Pricey keyboard folio doesn’t work well on your lap

I love tablets and I love Chrome OS, and I was hoping to love the Pixel Slate. Despite the problems I've had, part of me still does. When I sit down and use it as a laptop, it's one of the best Chrome OS devices I've used. The screen is fantastic,...
