Display

The 12.3-inch display on the Google Pixel Slate is vivid and crisp. Excellent reproduction of the gleaming gold that decorates the dance academy’s facade and the intense red that floods across Suzy Bannion throughout the film, as well as strong, verdant greens for the ferns in the school’s lobby, were immediately apparent to me as I watched a remastered version of the 1977 film Suspiria on the Pixel Slate.

Smaller ripples in the school pool and the texture of the blue velour walls in the foyer were among the many fine things I noticed on the Slate’s 3,000 x 2,000-pixel panel. The Pixel Slate’s display achieves 120 percent of the sRGB color spectrum, slightly better than the Pixelbook’s average of 116 percent and its 117 percent rating. While the Surface Pro 6 (136%) and iPad Pro (128%) scored somewhat higher, the Galaxy Book 2’s screen scored an impressive 200%.

Software and Processing Speed

It doesn’t matter if you’re making documents, surfing the web, or watching videos online. Everything is child’s play for the Google Pixel Slate M3. The device’s touchscreen interface is very quick and responsive.

This means your material can be interacted with and navigated with no effort. The screen’s 3000 x 2000 resolution is adequate for media consumption, including reading, writing, and watching movies. The display can also accept input via a stylus, making it possible to take notes or draw on the screen. Regarding data storage, the Google Pixel Slate has 64GB built right in, which should be enough for the typical user. The storage may be expanded, though, with a microSD card if you need it.

Bluetooth

When using Bluetooth headphones and a Bluetooth keyboard with my Pixel Slate, I encountered two strange and vexing problems. My music, for one, kept shutting off on me. My headphones, first my Apple AirPods and later my Bose QuietComfort 35, have randomly lost connectivity. On one occasion, the connection stabilized itself after a little pause on my part, but on other occasions, I had to re-pair it manually. I’ve asked Google if a fix works and will revise this review accordingly.

Audio

As a music player, the Google Pixel Slate holds its own. I filled the dining room, two adjoining rooms, and even the laundry machines in the attic with the powerful riffs and belting vocals of post-punk outfit Idles as I streamed their music on the Slate. The Pixel Slate’s two front-facing speakers produce a lot of power and sound fairly good, with punchy bass and clear vocals.

Conclusion

The Google Pixel Slate M3 is the best tablet money can buy if you need a device to do it all. For those who need a tablet for work or play, go no further than this one. The Pixel Slate M3 provides all the tools you need to get your work done, whether writing an article, editing images, or creating a spreadsheet.
