Logitech G Cloud

Hardware & display
Built as a stand-alone device, the Logitech G Cloud is in a class of its own. It has a touchscreen display with controls on either side of it, fitting well into the handheld gaming device category.

In total, the footprint of the G Cloud feels just right, coming in at around 10 inches wide and about 4.5 inches tall. The display runs at 7 inches across and can get up to a peak brightness of 450 nits – not impressive but still very manageable. Logitech opted for an FHD 1920 x 1080 display, so you won’t be able to make full use of 1440p in GeForce Now.

On the right and left sides, you’re equipped with all the controls you’d find on any gaming controller. The right houses your ABXY buttons and a thumbstick is placed right underneath it. There’s also a home button that’ll bring you to the homescreen at any time along with a menu button for in-game options.

The left side has a complimenting left thumbstick and D-pad right under it. There’s a G button that works much like the Xbox jewel, in that it can bring up Xbox Game Streaming or GeForce Now options. Closer to the top is your “more” button, which works in conjunction with the in-game menu button.

Gaming performance that could be perfect
Besides the outdated Android version loaded onto the G Cloud, there is another spec that raised a few eyebrows well before release. The G Cloud runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G – an older midrange SoC from 2019. The choice of processor for the G Cloud is an interesting one for sure. It was likely a cost-cutting measure, though I really can’t complain because it just works.
