Reviewing the Logitech G Cloud, a 2023 handheld gaming console that streams AAA titles from online services like Xbox Cloud and GeForce Now. As well as unboxing the Logitech G Cloud, we test out the game playing talents with Android hits like Genshin Impact as well as modern games like Atomic Heart.
The best bits of this handheld console vs the Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch OLED include the battery life and the cooling. Because this is an Android device running a low powered Snapdragon chipset, it can play games for around ten hours on a single charge. The Logitech G Cloud also doesn’t heat up because when it plays more intensive AAA titles, it’s all done via the cloud. And Genshin Impact doesn’t cause it to get toasty either.
On the flip side, that Cloud design means the console needs to be connected to the internet to make use of the online gaming. And as there’s no 5G support, you’re limited to WiFi.
So while you can take a collection of games with you on Steam Deck or Nintendo Switch, the Logitech G Cloud can only play Android fare if you’re offline. Not the best handheld console for flights or long distance travel then!
