Default Revisiting The Google Pixel C - Better, But Not There Yet

Last month I published my review of the Pixel C. While I thought it was a very interesting tablet, in the end I was unable to give it any sort of recommendation due to the severe software bugs that were present. To me, this was quite surprising, as Google has a fairly good track record when it comes to the software on the Nexus devices. During the review process I reached out to Google to voice my concerns about the issues. What both concerns me and gives me hope for the Pixel C is that Google was readily aware of most of the problems I brought up. It concerns me because I think the appropriate decision would have been to delay its release, but it gives me hope that these issues will be fixed.

During my discussions with Google, I was offered the chance to test a new unit that would run a new unreleased build containing fixes that Google plans to release to the public in the future. Given the fact that the Pixel C has solid hardware let down by buggy software, the chance to see Google's improvements before they are officially released presented a great opportunity to revisit the Pixel C and determine if Google's upcoming changes can change my original verdict about the device. Read on to see what Google has changed, and if it's enough to turn things around for the Pixel C.
