Why You Should Buy NVIDIA Shield

Updated on June 14, 2016

With the incorporation of diverse technologies, gamers are looking for one way to play all of their Android and PC games in one system without cords and hours of frustration. NVIDIA is looking to rank the playing arena with the NVIDIA Shield, a three part system which supports portable gaming across a selection of platforms.


NVIDIA Shield is very identical to the Xbox 360, but still handles to convey a shiny elegance. A lot of gamers give emphasis to the removable magnetic cover which adorns the lid of the devices. It comes with plastic cover known as a tag, glides off with ease and snaps back into original position effortlessly. It also comes with the default silver bag that has raised center panel, which stands out next to the matte black chassis made of plastic.

Buttons and Controls

In the middle of this device is the proprietary Shield control. A quick push takes you to an optimized TegraZone, while a long push will show an option for sleep, power, Miracast wireless display and Airplane mode.

When not playing, the analog right stick acts as your virtual mouse. The left stick allows you to cycle in applications and home screens. Pushing down on either left or right stick if hovering over an icon will launch the selected icon right away.


For a compact design, the sound is remarkable. The incorporated stereo speakers generate a clear and rich sound. The Pharrell’s lilting falsetto meshed properly with the bassline. Even better, the keyboard and guitar were in ideal harmony, making a whole balanced sound.


This is integrated with the default Android keyboard. The big dark gray buttons are properly spaced in setting mode. The outline lacks trace typing, but Google’s own keyword integrates this feature together with a vibrant floating word preview.

Operating System

Nvidia Shield works a quite pure version of Android. Unlike a usual Android gadget, this doesn’t feature a lock screen. It comes with a default home screen which has Google Search Bar with 6 icons like Twitch TV, Hulu Plus, Shield Help, Settings, Expandable Rearmed and Sonic 4 Episode II THD.


Nvidia Shield is extremely well designed and built.

It comes with a controller that provides a point of mixing which has not been possible in past Android devices. Add in an abundant catalog of very reasonable, high quality game titles, the Nvidia Shield is the holy grail of gaming devices for any player. It comes with a clear and very nice screen. The system is fluid and the whole thing works really well.

Blistering overall as well as graphical performance

This device has springy and tight controls, is relatively customizable, very loud and full audio and most of all, you can use it for a long time.

Nvidia Shield tablet is made to be utilized with the wireless controller to play all of your computer games. You also have the capability to stream your games by means of Twitch.
