Google Pixel Slate
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 just as well, if not better.

- 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

But when you factor in the keyboard, you can get a more powerful, more capable Windows device for less.CNET70Google Pixel Slate reviewThere 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.PC Mag70Google Pixel Slate ReviewThe first Chrome OS-based tablet from Google, the Pixel Slate is superior hardware, but in practice, it falls short of topping the Apple iPad, Chromebooks, or Windows tablets.The Guardian80A strong case for death of Android tabletsThe Pixel Slate makes a very convincing argument for the death of Android tablets. Turning the desktop-class experience of Chrome OS into a mobile, finger-friendly operating system brings the best of both worlds together in one neat package. At least in theory. Most of it works really, really well. But it is a case of trial and error for Android apps to see what works and what doesn’t.Forbes70Better Laptop Than The 2018 iPad ProThe Pixel Slate is better in tablet mode than Microsoft Surface Pro and better in laptop mode than the iPad Pro. And it has long battery life, incredible speakers, a good optional keyboard/trackpad, fast performance on Chrome OS, and the ability to run both Android apps and legacy applications like Microsoft Office.The Verge60Google Pixel Slate ReviewLast year’s Pixelbook is still around and getting discounted all the time. Sure, it has last year’s processor and you can’t detach the keyboard, but I’ve found it to be stabler and simpler. It also weighs a quarter pound less than the Slate with the keyboard attached. I still love my Pixelbook, and I’m sticking with it.The Pixel Slate has a lot going for it, but it’s just too experimental. The bummer is that I actually like what Google is trying to do here. I just wish it was less trying and more doing.TrustedReviews80Google Pixel Slate ReviewThe Pixel Slate is the best Chrome OS tablet ever made, but the operating system needs work if Google wants it to be an iPad Pro or Surface Pro killer.Android Police60The Google Pixel Slate is a beautiful mess - but mostly just a messI have no doubt the Pixel Slate will get better with subsequent releases, and I plan to make an effort to use it regularly and see how Google evolves and updates the experience (I’m updating to the Beta channel as I write this). I just hope they move a little faster and more aggressively, because this product needs help.Digital Trends70Google Pixel Slate reviewThe Pixel Slate is a better laptop than the iPad Pro, and a better tablet than the Surface Pro 6. However, the individual strengths of both of those devices outshine any one strength of the Pixel Slate. Google has bitten off more than it can chew with Android implementation, and it still has its work cut out on the software side of things. With its impeccable display, speakers, and folio keyboard, the Slate is in a good spot right now, even if it doesn’t soundly defeat its prime competitors.

It did not disappoint. Not to take away from the negative experience of early buyers, but this tablet has had a number of updates that have fixed most (if not all) the issues from when this product was first launched. This tablet has a fantastic display & surprisingly good speakers. I'd say the price is steep for tablet, but that has been overshadowed by a great experience.dontbeevil410February 25, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!An awful product that should be avoided. You'll be sorry. - EngadgetBob70February 25, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Decent computer. Wife thinks it is my iPad and that is good. But the keyboard stinks. I bought the Brydge keyboard. Much betterEngadget Reader30February 24, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Engadget is asking for a "fan's opinion". Seeing as my main device is a Pixel 3 (and Pixel 2 and OG before that), and I bought two different variants of the Slate (m3 and i5), as well as having pretty much bought into most of Google’s software ecosystem, I would consider myself a "fan". That still doesn’t stop me from recognizing all of Google’s problems and issues, which I am very passionate about. After all, I want the devices I use to work as good as possible; excusing shortcomings is helping no one. The fact that this is essentially my hobby, and I have the privilege of owning and testing many different units in these segments, allows me to have a somewhat qualified opinion as well. * Too big. If you want it to be used both as a tablet and a laptop, don't make the damn thing 12"+. It's even bigger than my Surface Pro. 10-10.5" is the sweet spot here. I don't have problems with 10" on a Surface Go, which I have tested; I certainly wouldn't on the even more simplistic Chrome OS. Not to mention that the few Android apps that have tablet support, are scaled for 8-10".* QC issues, of which buzzing speakers is a major one. This is not an anamoly, but rather a recurrent behavior by Google, who continuously sell these expensive (Pixel phones, Pixel buds, etc) units, with way too many widespread QC issues. The speakers not only buzz, but also completely change the way they sound in the higher volumes, which is weird. This is simply bad engineering and bad quality control.* Unjustified price. If I’m buying what’s essentially a low-powered Core-Y (2 cores) processor and eMMC memory (not even SSD, or UFS 2.0!), and only 128GB of it, $1000 is a ridiculous price. I can get a Surface Pro 6 i5 8250U (4 cores and fanless) and 128GB SSD for $800, less than that! I don’t need to tell you that the Surface Pro is a budget device, or that it runs a full-fledged OS that can do both browsing as well as much else.* Wobbly keyboard. Generally, a great keyboard, except for the fact that it’s not connected well-enough to not wobble, when using it on the laptop (you know, the whole purpose of a laptop). Look to Microsoft here, who have essentially perfected this. Google’s idea of making the keyboard a kickstand as well, that is “infinitely” adjustable, is damn innovative, however. It only needs 1 or 2 very minor tweaks for second version and will be by far the best one out there.* Terrible tablet interface experience: the Slate is sold without a keyboard and is also advertised heavily as a tablet and 2-in-1. You therefore expect it to properly function as a tablet. But it doesn’t. Even ignoring the fact its bulky size (I use it as a tablet just as little as I do my Surface Pro), or that the Android tablet apps are clearly not optimized for 12”, the experience of the Slate is still pretty bad. There’re frame drops, jitter, stutter and inconsistencies all over the place. Touch latency is far from impressive, making the use of a pen redundant. Also, a significant portion of the interface experience is in 30 FPS. 30 FPS in 2018/2019 is just dumbfounding. But in what’s essentially a $1000 unit, it’s just beyond outlandish and beyond inexcusable. That’s something that cannot be ignored and makes the experience just flat out bad. * Flawed laptop interface experience; this is both a mix of Slate and Chrome OS issues. Chrome OS is essentially a glorified browser, so you’d think that it would be easy to provide a well-rounded experience. But it isn’t, and it feels less smooth than, say, MacOS. There’s a clear amount of stutter, frame drops and inconsistencies in areas that should not have it; like minimizing windows.* Feels like a Beta build due to too many bugs: Chrome OS has too many bugs. Even Bluetooth dropouts, which has been complained about for years, is still going on. How can Google defend this?* Lack of ecosystem: Spotify is only supported through the web player, but that’s low-quality 128kbps. The android app is buggy, and just refreshes whenever one attempt to choose "high quality" in settings. Then there’s the lack of support for a proper Office Word experience, with both the Android and web version being severely limited (in everything from missing a thesaurus to the inability to save files on Google Drive). And the list goes on. This is the problem when only relying on the browser or Android versions. Crostini is trying to help mitigate this, but it’s still very limited, and has too many of its own problems and issues that need to be dealt with.The lack of third-party app support can be explained away, I guess. But the fact that Google hasn’t even bothered to tailor its own ecosystem for the Slate, is ludicrous. Apps like YouTube are clearly not properly optimized for the Chrome OS tablet experience. Google has yet again, as they almost always do, half-assed their job in making a product, and demanded a premium price tag for it. It’s quite obvious, by the look of the issues that exist, as well as it being a recurring theme throughout their entire product line-up, that it’s down to Google’s lack of interest of investing time and money on their products. I buy a Surface or a Macbook, I get a well-rounded unit: touch pad responsitivity, display quality (calibration, response time, etc.), cooling solutions, design, keyboard, speakers, software drivers, etc. It all, for the most part, feels like something that have gone through a comprehensive design process. It doesn’t just happen by accident; these companies are purposefully aiming for premium devices, and they employ the engineering talent and manpower, as well as spending the needed resources to get that done. Google doesn’t. You see it with their Pixel phones, that, despite their many fantastic aspects, are released with way too many quality control issues, year after year (I've literally gone through four Pixel 2's to get a properly-functioning on, at this point). You saw it with the Pixelbook. You see it with the Pixel Slate as well. There's well-though elements (like the keyboard, or the good display calibration). Even people who genuinely like the Slate can’t overlook the points mentioned above. The argument that you can do more stuff with a Surface and a Macbook is significant– it’s one of the main reasons why I’m writing this on a Surface Pro 6. The counterargument that Chrome OS is supposed to be simple does not cut it; if it it’s supposed to be simple and cut-down, then what’s the point of paying $1000, and not $500? The purpose of Chrome OS is to provide a cheap simple-purpose laptop OS. So how does it justify reuniting that with an expensive unit? It doesn’t, and probably never will until Fuchia OS arrives. A recurring counterargument is that many people want to get the simplicity of Chrome OS, but with a faster and smoother performance. But Chrome OS on the Pixel Slate is everything else than smooth, so even that argument does not stand. If you want a smooth and more simplistic option to Windows in the premium device, there's Macbooks. Mac OS even has proper support for many important desktop applications (like Photoshop, Office, Spotify, etc.), unlike Chrome OS. There’s a reason why there’s a consensus of YouTube reviewers out there lambasting the Slate – even the pro-Google ones, like MKBHD. Even some controversial/bad products don’t have this much of an agreement between reviewers. I believed into the hype by members of this sub, ignoring all the initial negative reviews, and bought 2 of them (one m3 and one i5). over 3 months later, and it's one of the most regretful purchases I've done in recent memory (topped only by the Essential PH-1, which was excruciatingly bad).Agustín100February 24, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A gadget unicorn - EngadgetMark40February 23, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I am a die-hard Google fan on my third pixel, have Google home thruout my house etc.I kept this for a week trying so hard to like it but the apps operated like a hot mess! The display I'd beautiful but I want my tablet to do more than watch videos. Some apps would not function properly, I never could get Facebook to even work! The way the apps kept jumping into the chrome browser was the most irratating tech failure I have encountered in a long time. After one week I boxed it up and returned it to Google. I wanted to live it and hated it.Andrei30February 23, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The keyboard is overpriced and bad. The Pixel Slate is a lovely tablet with a lag. The Slate is like the cute Starbucks waitress who is slow on her feet. I would recommend the older Pixelbook over the Pixel Slate.Donnie100February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I love it! It is the best tablet and laptop I ever had! Wow amazing!! Thanks Google!Lane90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I don't understand why the reviews are so bad. I have a Pixelbook as well as the Slate and since I got the stake have not used the Pixelbook much. While I like the keyboard my main use is while knocked back in my recliner with several dogs and having the pure tablet is great. I don't like the feel of keys on the back while I'm using it. I have a lot of Play store apps and use Linux LibreOffice and Gimp. My only real complaint is that Google needs to step it up with the onscreen keyboard.Scott90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I bought it for the fingerprint scanner. Full stop. This should be standard on all Android/Chrome devices. Yes, its pricey but I have yet to feel any lag when using it (I have the M version).John90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Bought my slate "used" from a reseller. I got the i7, 256 with 16GB. I replaced my ipad pro and mac mini with this tablet. At work, I use a logitech bt keyboard, microsoft surface arc mouse and a plugable USB-C 4K hub to drive 2 24" Acer monitors. I bought the Brydge G-type keyboard for portability. I have been using this setup for 3 weeks and while it can be a little buggy, the overall experience has been very good. The slate screen is very nice and the battery life seems better than the ipad pro. I have not seen any real issues with android apps and chrome OS. I am in the browser most of the day as most of my communication and work is done in office 365.Rob90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I like this device. It does what I need, Chrome, and a linux console for SSH access. I managed to get wine working with the app I need to program my routers. My only complaint would be the lack of hinges on the keyboard - but it's better than a Surface Pro would be. I use Chrome Remote Desktop if I need do code - but this does everything well. I used it to watch Downloaded Netflix on a transatlantic flight - it's great!Gary70February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I use it for two things: reading comics and for music (I sing). It's pretty good for both of those things. However, I was using a Chromebook Plus (2.4) lbs before this and it seemed odd to spend ~$800 more just for something half a pound lighter. The biggest issue I've been having is that there isn't enough third party support for cases and things that I really want for it (ideal: a three ring binder with place for the Slate on the binder). I can barely find basic cases.Shawn90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I bought the I5 128GB model and absolutely love it. It replaced my iPad pro and I don't miss it a bit. I really don't see the nay Sayers here, I've had a surface pro and iPad pro and for what I do the pixel slate is hands down better. I mostly surf the web, but I also use it for travel and use Microsoft office, read books as a tablet, magazines, watch movies and TV shows, use some Android apps, edit photos, and have never missed a beat with this. I only wish it had an SD slot, but I put movies and documents on a small usbc drive when needed.srslywtf90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I love my pixel slate. Great hardware, very stylish, I love switching between the Brydge and Folio keyboards. I opted for the i7 version, which was probably overkill, but mine flies. There is a sharp learning curve for Android apps and tablet mode, but so long as the user stays in chrome as much as possible and uses android 2nd, it's a great experience afaic.Devin90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Have been very pleased with my Slate overall. Use it for notes during meetings with the pixel pen on a daily basis and have appreciated having all my notes saved in drive for easy searching and review. Use it weekly to present from and while I would appreciate something in the 10" range it hasn't been too big or cumbersome to handle.JCornel7100February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A gadget unicorn - EngadgetRayAdams40February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A poor product that's more likely to be frustrating than useful. - EngadgetJoel90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I've had the M3 slate since release. I use it all the time in tablet mode and my son uses it with the pen to color and trace.I love the slate and I wouldn't change my mind about the purchase. The front firing speakers and display set it apart. My wife is all about apple products. Even she chooses to use it over her iPad.I don't use it much is laptop mode. I used in mostly to test out the Google Stream service and fell in love with that.My son dropped the Slate onto our hardwood floor and it survived.Just wish there were more accessory options.Keith90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetTrenton90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I am very impressed with the I5 Pixel Slate model. I was determined to future proof my investment so immediately ruled out the lower spec'd models. It meets all of my needs and then some. The screen is the best I've seen on any Chromebook or tablet to date. It is a pleasure to use. Speakers are front facing and awesome! Have no complaints. Battery life is amazing and have never been in a case where I ran out of juice. The Slate charges extremely fast so have no concerns there. I have been unaffected from the lag reported by others, but perhaps due to the beefier model. Tablet mode is seamless for me. The lack of tablet optimized Android apps issue remains, but did not upset me. It is what it is. The apps bridge the gap between the primary web apps (that always work better regardless of platform!), but are secondary use for me. I'm closing I am a Chromebook user that really appreciates the 2 in 1 format. I also see Keyboard use as primary and then tablet more for entertainment mode. Somewhat different use case as tested by reviewers. Overall suggest as a purchase for anyone looking for a premium build and experience where need for desktop apps is not a primary requirement.I love mine and an happy with the device.Iason60February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Google Pixel Slate with Intel i5.After 45 days of everyday use my findings are:After a battery drain, the Pixel Slate wouldn't turn on (power plugged in) and I could not reset it or perform a recovery.Google Pixel Slate support is the worst! I contacted them multiple times and escalated my issue to a higher tier, only to receive an RMA 4 days later. The RMA process, since I purchased my device from BestBuy (and not the Google store) is going to take 2 weeks. Folks, that's 2 weeks without a device.Now, apart from that, Chrome OS still needs a lot of work, but one can perform the majority of daily functions with no hiccups. The user experience is buggy at times and the slate will restart on its own. I hope that the issues regarding performance will be addressed with future software updates, but Google Pixel Support is what needs a complete overhaul - the worst customer service experience!mortifera142100February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I actually really love this tablet. It works for me and I have the i7 version. I am hoping the Linux support ramps up even more and now maybe with Project Stream we get some good gaming on ChromeOS. ChromeOS has come a long way and hoping that it improves. It works me for school and work for all my web applications and some android. I am hoping they fuse Android and ChromeOS into one OS soon which would be great.T90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I purchased the i5 model. My principal application is document management and secondarily accessing the internet via Chrome. I frequently lecture and speak at conferences; podiums with poor lighting do not work well with my eyesight. Historically I have used an iPad Pro for this purpose. Pinch zoom, document storage/retrieval, "readability, internet access, and battery life are the most important attributes for my usage. Moreover, I frequently engage in question and answer and it’s helpful to me to have a number of documents resident on my device in order to access ‘facts and figures.” I am not particularly interested in gaming, watching movies,or editing photos or soundtracks on portable devices.The Pixel Slate checks all the boxes for my needs.To be sure, there are “pros and “cons “ for the both the iPad and Slate. The Slate’s interface doesn’t compare to the iPad, but to be fair Apple’s OS is far more mature. The Slate is fine for word processing and light editing. So is the iPad. But with both platforms I still cannot escape traveling with a tablet (for public presentations) and my laptop (for real work back at the hotel).The clear differentiating attribute is expandable storage and the Pixel’s decision for USB and memory card support clinched the deal for me. One can add storage options to the iPad, but it’s a hack. I won’t even start on mouse support.It is disappointing that everyone review I read focused on comparing the Slate with the iPad. Perhaps that was proper. What I did not find was a reviewer who was talking to the potential customer. Reviewers often seem to be speaking to one another.In the final analysis, the display is excellent; the hardware is excellent; yes the Google keyboard is flimsy however the excellence solution by Brydge makes the continual rant about the connector a waste of time.I do not care if the shovel has a black handle or a red one as long as it can be used to dig a hole.Erik90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I bought one of the six i7 Pixel Slates that have been purchased by non-Google employees. I kid, but seriously, I haven’t seen a single review with the i7 build out there. I am admittedly a Google fanboy, so you should neatly weigh my words with that in mind.The device build quality is absolutely amazing. No doubt the high marks are well earned in that category. Screen clarity, keyboard/pen functionality and responsiveness, solid build, it looks and feels fantastic.Then there’s the Chrome OS. It is, as with all things Google, a work in progress. They have gotten me used to living with software that is terrifyingly close to Beta. The Android and Chrome OS integration often leave me confused with each app and their capabilities. Offline use? Go with the Android version for consistency. Still, Chrome OS is great for Chrome OS apps and anything browser based. Web-based SaaS technologies work _very_ well. It’s a full Chrome browser after all.For the Constant Beta conversation, I wasn’t able to get Google Hangouts working using the on-screen keyboard because the enter key for the keyboard wasn’t sending messages. I just checked it again and, yup, it works now. That’s both the good and bad of relying on Google’s software.Swinging back to Android. Because the platform is accessible to Android apps, doesn’t mean than all of the Android apps play nice. It works well for things that are designed with tablets in mind, but not many applications are. Crashes happen often.But that’s really a software problem. In fact, Chrome OS device reviews should largely be _Chrome OS_ reviews. And since Chrome OS iterates rapidly over time, those reviews quickly become irrelevant.The real reason I bought this device, though, and why I’m sticking with the i7 version. Because I am a gamer, deep down. And with the embedded Linux package that you can enable in the settings, you can be sporting a Debian based Linux solution complete with packager. (Beta? Hah!)This is where the geeking comes in. A Linux-based OS on a laptop? Yes please! I was able to go out and ‘apt-get’ Steam. And the storefront ran beautifully. Then I tried to play a game… nope. No GPU nor Audio support. However, this is where the rapid iteration of Google comes in. We’re one to two builds away of getting both audio and GPU support for the Linux package. Check in with me in about a month, and I’ll give you a new review. Please realize that I’d be playing RimWorld, Duskers or possibly even Frostpunk, on a plane, and not The Witcher 3.Sure, I could have solve all of these problems on a Surface Pro. I considered it for a long time before they debuted the Pixel Slate! Then there was the promise of Linux, Google, and Steam for Linux! *sigh* Yes, I have horrible priorities, but I love what I love. :)Markus80February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I haven't had any problems with mine and find the form factor to be perfect for my needs. The screen is gorgeous. I mostly use it for gaming(project stream, android emulators) and writing/minor coding. I've got the i5 version with the keyboard(awesome keyboard). Battery life is solid but not impressive. I wouldn't expect it to be very durable, and it really doesn't offer a ton of expand-ability unless you buy a dongle. Never had any noise issues with it.Alexander70February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A dependable product that doesn't really stand out from the competition. - EngadgetMatthew90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Great product for my wife as a laptop replacement and as a Netflix device in tablet mode. Software was buggy in tablet mode but has improved with every update. Solid premium device that does everything we need.Doug90February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Bought my i5 after watching review after review tear into it. I was coming from a Samsung tablet running Windows, which i really liked but was a bit slow and distressing because Chrome doesn't have the best Windows integration. The Windows Swype-like native keyboard doesn't work in chrome, and it's resource hungry. Edge doesn't support Chromecast, so in this light a Pixel Slate is a great move, Android support is nice, but Crostini makes it feel like it has the potential to do real work, I've already installed Steam. It's true that the desktop environment - home screen, window manager, etc - is a horrible mess, but these things are solvable. As someone who uses desktop Linux regularly, these kinds of growing pains are common. It's interesting Google is releasing half baked stuff to the public, but it really could be a lot worse. I'm happy with it!Andy100February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!After a false start with a faulty unit (and thinking the issue was a software problem) I got a new unit and I love it! The keyboard was weird at first but now I"m used to it I much prefer the round keys and solid feel of it; i actually prefer it to my old surface pro cover.After a couple of updates, ChromeOS is fast and stable and running Linux on the Slate for my development apps is a breeze.I do hope Google enables dual-boot soon so I can test Windows on my Slate but overall, the device is everything I hoped it would be.Don't buy if you do a lot more than browsing and document editing but if most of what you do is browser-based or has a linux app, the Pixel Slate is a great device in my opinion.jRod6690February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Don't compare this to an iPad! It doesn't have the same flashy apps and animations but it is way more capable than any iPad if you want a full Linux computer. This is the first tablet that I would consider for my only device when traveling. The full desktop web browser is great. The Brydge keyboard makes it feel like a full laptop. Most of the time I use it to surf the web while watching TV. I like the Slate a lot as a tablet and I like that it can be way more than that when I need it to be.Cody80February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Love the tablet. It has been great for me. No lag. No problems. I got the m3 version. I wish it were slightly smaller. Feels big for a tablet especially when connected to the keyboard. The keyboard design could have been done a lot better. Too flexible by the point it connects and seems to make the tablet heavier and as thick as a laptop.Mike20February 22, 2019Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!returned it honestly if you want a pc tablet style get a surface at least thats a full on pc...and runs about the same price, if you want a tablet get a galaxy tab or a ipad pro...this thing has no place on any shelf or in anyones house unless your a google fanatic and own alot of stock in the product...it works exactly like any of the chrome os tablets with a touch screen and honestly they are about half the price...
