Pixel C tablet: I would not recommend this product to anyone. It is probably the worst electronic equipment I've ever owner, and I grew up with Dell computers.
The issue is completely because of the wifi connection speeds. After I purchased it new, I noticed how slow it was compared to my phone's wifi speed. I did some reading on forums and came to find a lot of people were having the same issues. It is so bad that I can be standing literally next to my wireless router and not have enough speed to play clash of clans or load simple pdf documents, while my phone sitting in the same spot loads these in seconds.
After spending about 10hrs in deliberations with Google, they refused to refund my purchase, and would only agree to send me a replacement pixel c. The replacement device was actually labeled (refurbished) on the shipping order I received and the screen even had a couple pixels visually burnt out.
To no surprise, within 1 week of using the replacement tablet, the connection speeds were equally as slow as the 1st tablet, and Google refused to refund me. So after almost 1yr of having this product, the connection speeds have continued to slow leaving me unable to open most websites homepages within 1 min, some will simply not load at all.
I seriously hope nobody else had to deal with this product. Make a better decision than I did.
dracula, 29 Jun 2017There should be a function where we can use a stylus for it.There is. Get an active stylus from Amazon or any other major electronics retailer. They start at roughly $20 for versions that don't offer pressure sensitivity. If you want that function, the price will tick up a bit, but will likely be cheaper than many of the branded options from Apple or Samsung.
I can't figure out where to how to get that vibration working working on the pixel can't find it anywhere. Did however find a place where you can read the template sensor, weird that they didn't list it in the specs.
Also and now without joking around, great specs in this thing, battery is super. Only issue would be that it has a small hardware issue that Google (or LG) does look to solve. One of the sides of the screen cable can get louse and you will lose that side. Send a free new one for you send the old one back, but still a pain for some people.
Does the jack socket allow connecting TRRS microphone (like Rode Smartlav+) to record sound?
517 grams is heavy.
Google should make a 2560 x 1920 resolution 7.9" tablet to complete with the iPad Mini. Charge a little more because it would be better!
I have bought a pixel C 32 GB a year ago. Since than the tablet WENT WRONG 3 times! The problem was with the display all 3 times: it didn't respond or didn't refresh correctly. I also had problems with the wifi, it disconnects sometimes.
I just had to send it back, and they replaced it, but it is NOT a stable device in my opinion. If you want a ready-to-use tablet DO NOT buy this one, it's not stable.
I won't buy first generation products in the future :(.
try looking at this phone from the side, its slick, i really love it, it plays great music and more! but at the same time this product has made me feel like a better option is the iphone6+ due to its easy customizability and comfortability. I like Samsung.

Dearest Google android fans.According to the last polling,1000 millions worldwide are using android systems in their devices!!!Supposedly a person just using a minimum of one dollar per day of android systems!!The result is 365,000,000,000 a year amazingly incredibly!!!Of course I know a family whom spend 100 gigs monthly!!Google,s real share is undisclosable for some private reasons!!!Thanks goodness that its security is rising and ascending rapidly and after maybe 2 years will put Microsoft behind too!!Mentionable that Google chrome (About this tablet though have 9 Nos and absence of WiFi ac and a dedicated memory slot but still with paying $600 for a 64 gigs one,you have 3 years of constant Google support,updates and upgrades which logically means you don't need to buy a new tablet!!!That's why Google is called a king with 30,000 scientists and experts working behind mountains or running and ruling the Earth,....)]Thanks everyone everywhere thirsty of knowledge)))] browser in Microsoft devices moves faster than Microsoft browser which is the father and mother of electronic software hardware technology maker!!!

So, as for Night Light, you have a few options.
1. Grab a screen filter from Google Play
2. Put yourself on an updated custom ROM (I can help you with that if you like, it's great for customizability. I recommend Pure Nexus: https://forum.xda-developers.com/pixel-c/development/rom-pure-nexus-substratum-t3537538)
3. Wait for Google to push the Android 7.1 update
My Pixel C does not have "Night Light" in the Display options like my Pixel does, I like to think that using it at night with this feature on would help me sleep easier. How do I get that feature on my Pixel C?

If you don't know what it is looking it up but basically ssd's etc can all be made in secure environment but if you have a card slot so easy for someone to slip in card full of things like Stutnex. Manufacturers know about this and once it came into public domain 5 or so yrs ago only the company's that were at end of design/production process (ie - 3-5 yr) they phased it out quicker as an ex custom rom programmer Google know what their doing if you ever used the old Android market you'll understand as about 70% of it were all adware/malware etc etc .
As for pixel C 64gb liking it powerful tablet and okay for money considering 1.9ghz cput and ddr4 ram .
You mention Lenovo I have the 510 256gb 2gb Radeon video card 8GB ddr4 ram and an i7 2in1 no probs so far and playing xboxone games like Forza even though says graphics don't meet requirements I just turn it up ,sweet as a nut .
Hope I've been of some help .
Per CNET, "Google Pixel C is the best Android tablet money can buy".
The speakers are very tinny the ones on the Samsung tab s 10.5" are so much superior in clarity.
