Nvidia Shield Tablet Review

 

Despite its problems, we actually liked Nvidia's original Shield Android gaming handheld. Our biggest issue with it was that it was bulky and heavy. With rumors swirling around about a Shield 2, we were hoping to see a slimmer, lighter design. So...

The Nvidia Shield Tablet provides a kick-ass combination of features, including a very-fast K1 processor, game streaming and a versatile stylus.

Sleek clean design; Beautiful display with vivid color; Excellent graphics and overall performance; Can stream Android and PC games; Controller offers tight accurate controls with low latency for Android and PC; Long battery life

Tablet and controller both bulky; Expensive with accessories

NVIDIA Shield tablet review: a solid slate with a gaming addiction

 

NVIDIA's Shield gaming handheld was a peculiar, singular device: an expensive Android portable aimed squarely at consumers that had already purchased

Feels good in hand ; Lower latency than Bluetooth controllers ; Clickable mousepad makes menus easy to browse

Mousepad is not very sensitive ; Built-in microphone is oversensitive ; Only works with NVIDIA's hardware ; Must be purchased separately

The Shield Wireless Controller is a solid gamepad in its own right, outfitted with plenty of useful bells and whistles for interacting with your NVIDIA devices. But the high price tag leaves a sting since you can't use it with anything but those NVIDIA...

It's not for everyone, but this tablet stands a fighting chance to win over gamers

Decently priced ; Great specs ; Possible alternative to Steam Machines

Not as portable as the first ; Contoller is beefy

First Impressions: A tablet designed by gamers for gamers

More importantly, it’s just as a good a standalone tablet as it is a ‘gaming tablet’ — an important point if and when you grow tired of the gaming options available to you. As with the Shield Tablet, the greatest problem remains games. Android has lots...

The ultimate gamer's tablet?

The Shield Tablet provides incredible gaming power at a reasonable cost, but a lack of exclusive software and no bundled controller count against it

Last year's Nvidia Shield handheld games system was a true innovation, offering fantastic internal tech and amazing physical gaming controls, but it was always going to be a niche product with limited commercial potential. Nvidia isn't abandoning the...

Nvidia's approach may be slightly different this year, but the end result is the largely the same - if you're serious about Android gaming then this really is the only option in town. It offers console-standard graphics - along with a console-quality...

The original Nvidia Shield was a technological powerhouse, proving the graphical strength of the Tegra 4 processor. The Shield Tablet is another massive step forward, boasting Nvidia's new Tegra K1 chip, which boasts the same kind of power you'd see...

The Shield Tablet's technological power isn't in doubt, but aside from Trine 2, there's not much out there that really pushes it to its limits at the moment. Most Android games are rather basic visually, although the pre-installed Nvidia Hub does make...

Depending on who you speak to, NVIDIA's original SHIELD is either an amazing success or a device that failed to find its niche. Regardless of what

Lots of software problems

 

I'm very dissapointed with Nvidia. The shield tablet has so many bugs at software level mostly. I really hope they fix it. So far, the problems still a pain. Reboots itself. Stay turned on for nothing. Turns itself on (wow, ). Last nigth I leave the...

Tegra K1 is the best thing this tablet has ; Front faceing speakers ; Pen is cool, works well

Battery life is just not acceptable. This tablet burns the battery even at nigth, even without touching it. Even turned off!!! (I still don't know how this tablet turns itself on) ; Android implementation is the worst part. Apps fails lead to complete...
