The Logitech G Cloud is a handheld gaming device made for cloud gaming. It’s basically an Android tablet with a 7 inch display, but thanks to built-in game controllers it’s clearly built for gaming. And thanks to its mid-range processor, it’s clearly not meant for native gaming, but for streaming games from cloud services like Xbox Cloud Gaming and GeForce Now.

And early reviews suggest it does those things fine… but so do a lot of other gadgets, which are either cheaper, more powerful, or less… quirky. So when handheld gaming expert The Phawx got his hands on one, he couldn’t help but be disappointed.

There is probably something to be said about buying a product from a company like Logitech, which has a well-established presence in Western markets, rather than a more obscure device like the Retroid Pocket 3. But is that enough to get you to spend nearly three times as much on Logitech’s handheld?

At least the upcoming Razer Edge Android gaming tablet will have a higher-performance processor and controllers that are removable.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. Not sure what everyone is complaining about. The quality is on PAR with anything else Logitech make, excellent. The performance is very good for native Android gaming and emulation. People’s biggest complain has been price. Again, this Logitech. We’re not talking about some unknown company coming out of nowhere. Logitech has teams of experienced engineers that understand how to make a product properly. People need to shut up with the whining. This tablet is wonderful!

  2. For what it is, it should be 149 list, 99 on sale (which it will be when no-one buys this thing) I’d much rather have an AYN Odin in this range.

    I’m not sure what they were thinking price wise, but its pretty terrible.

    1. Seems clear you don’t have one. The performance and quality is great! I think the retail price is a little bit high, but not so high that I’d feel ripped off. The pre-order price was good.

      What is “terrible” is your opinion. The Logitech G is excellent!
