The Google Play Store is available on the new console, but native gaming isn’t the G Cloud’s strong suit – it’s fuelled by a Snapdragon 720G, which really is good and efficient but not designed for AAA gaming. If you’d like to explore native gaming, keep in mind that there is only 4 gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigabytes of storage, which may be insufficient for more complex games. However, you can increase the memory space with a microSD card.
However, efficiency is crucial, since this portable console offers more than 12 hours of battery usage with its 23.1Wh battery. Over USB-C, charging takes 2.5 hours. There’s a 3.5mm headphone connector, Bluetooth 5.1, plus stereo speakers.
A 7″ LCD screen with 450 nits of brightness, multi-touch capability, and a refresh rate of 60Hz is included. That’s a little disappointing; as cloud streaming isn’t ideal for HRR gaming, however GeForce Now, for example, already offers 120fps streaming. Nonetheless, the 1080p resolution may be the highlight of this portable, considering that both; Nintendo Switch and Steam Deck offer 720p-class 60Hz screens.
Wi-Fi is used by the new handheld console to connect to the Internet. It is Wi-Fi 5 (ac) and is not Wi-Fi 6. (ax). There is also no 4G LTE or superfast 5G connectivity; you must be within Wi-Fi coverage.
The Logitech G Cloud features analogue joysticks on the left and right, analogue triggers on the left and right, two bumpers, a D-pad, and A/B/X/Y buttons. The controls can be rearranged. A gyroscope and haptic feedback are also included.
