Cyber Monday: Our favorite Xbox Cloud Gaming deal
The Logitech G Cloud is the first of its kind — a full handheld console designed primarily for use with streaming services like Xbox Cloud Gaming. It's a 7-inch, 1080p Android tablet with an integrated Xbox-style controller, stellar battery life, and a unique console-like interface to help you jump into the action faster. The G Cloud isn't for everyone due to its focused nature, but it is one of the best ways to enjoy Xbox Cloud Gaming, especially without killing your phone's battery or requiring a separate accessory.
