Google Clip has been facing the issues regarding its privacy aspects, ever since it has surfaced. The camera was made fun of for its size, though it was distinguishing for its ability of taking the user’s photo. However, the one inch broad lens connected at one of its side makes it look better. One can find a button under the lens, which is circular and can be taken as of a mechanical shutter; this is indeed a good addition. However, the other exclusive accessories are the USB-C charging slot at the bottom, the delicate “G”, which is logo of Google, presented in green at the back. In addition, one can find a small reset button as well at the bottom, close to the charging slot.
Coming to the negative aspects, the excessive small no doubt is a major weakness. In addition, the device’s battery life has not been satisfactory as well. The feature for which Clip was in so much of news, that is , “set it and forget it” has not worked well. It means the by the time a user goes for checking the captured thing it wishes, the battery gets already dead. Users have shown anguish as the lower battery life limits the number of moments that can be captured. The entire effort goes down simply with setting the device.
The front facing lights added with the device has not also gone well. There are three circular lights added with the snapper of the device. However, these are not satisfactory in terms of their performance when lightened. There is no clarification as well from the technology giant in this regard.
However, Google has managed to incorporate a pulsing white light that would indicate that the snapper is on recording mode.
Among the good parts, most of the users are satisfied about the lighter weight of the device. It has been satisfactory from connectivity point of views as well. Its wireless connection has been quite trustworthy for the users.
From manufacturing point of view, Google Clip enjoys mixed review. This time a rubberized case has been added with the box, which has been appreciated by many. Though it is not touted as explicit a use case, but, it certainly allows the user to connect something like a trimmed monitor. Moreover, as the clip projects towards the edge, a user can turn this upside down to prop the snapper up over a shelf, or the desktop.
