The weight of Google Pixel C is 517g which is heavier than the Apple iPad Air 2. But this product is thicker than the Apple iPad Air 2 which makes a plus point for this product. One of the missing feature is the fingerprint scanner that Google provides in its previous products.

The beauty of Google Pixel C is, you can connect your devices or other Pixel laptop to transfer data. One more feature you find that the table will charge your device connected with it. It is really a good feature when your device or smartphone goes out of battery.
