I mean, it is a simple, no-frill test that gives your OK or NOT OK and highlights where it is. It is just a temperature check, this has to be used in conjunction with other tools for it to be useful. Since it is free I recommend running it as a check always.

If you notice your site is taking a long time to load, then you should first use PageSpeed Insights to see what can quickly be optimized (also check your file sizes, hosting server, NGINX and other common sources of slow speed, too.) And, if you've notice gradually fewer Organic Search visits, PageSpeed Insights might be able to help. As Google is reducing the prevalence of slow sites, you could be losing traffic. Speed up your page load times by finding what is blocking renders, slowing down contentful paints, and other critical page speed signals.

Cons
Google
  • Google's suggestions are sometimes vague or unhelpful.
  • The test doesn't offer multiple screen sizes or shapes. Though this isn't a huge issue, it would be nice to make sure a site using media queries stays mobile friendly throughout size changes

I think this is a great addition to other search tools and a really quick and easy way to check how your pages work on mobile to ensure your users have the best experience.

I think GTmetrix has some feedback that PageSpeed doesn't provide, but Google's tool is easier overall and has a better user experience; also offers compressed images, CSS, and javascript files if that's the case. Also, Google has extensive documentation to help you better understand what can be done to improve your grade.
